    not letting me post

    Hi.
    I'm a realtively new member and have posted in a few areas, such as Foo in the Lounge forum. For some reason, I can't post in there anymore...it says it is not accepting new posts.
    what gives? I don't think I did anything wrong posting regarding offence, porn, etc.

    I have symptoms of Foo Withdrawal. I seem to be getting all my work done on time, and have not been dreaming of jsharr's balls lately.

    ok, I lied. I still dream of jsharr's balls.

    Yeah... you'll be drinking it while watching through the window as I knock on every door in the place looking for yours.... And of course you won't answer if by chance I DO knock on the right door, right?

    I'd like to make several suggestive/inappropriate replys, but they've already closed foo, and I don't want to get banned.

    You're gonna need more than a six pack, snowy. This calls for a couple of cases at the least.

    Sorry for flogging a dead horse, here, but I wasn't on all weekend and signed on Monday morning to find the current state of affairs. I understand why this freeze-out is happening, but I honestly think that those who are truly discontent will probably leave or just get tired of *****ing in the long run. Yes, it's irritating for those that have to deal with it, but all this drama and bull**** is pretty annoying for those of us who want no part of it, but just show up here for a good time. I don't think I've ever had any great problem with anything Brian (or Joe before him) or any of the mods have done, but this is sort of a last straw to push out people like me. I know that's not the intent, but it is the effect. BF is off my favorites list. Where do I turn in my red star?

    I know that this is VERY frustrating to the members that act like adults. Heck its frustrating to alot of the mods cause quite a few of us hang in Foo alot ourselves. I can only ask that you don't leave and just understand that we all are in the same boat! Before you know it Foo will be back up and running and hopefully the people interested in causing havoc will no longer stay!

    Thats okay, I switched to a mix of Cocaine and Heroin till Foo comes back.


    Anyway, it's stuff like this that generally springs up rival forums. -shrugs- I wouldn't give it the chance.

    So how will it be decided when to reopen Foo? Do I need to get my Green Lantern decoder ring to break the secret code?
