i apologize

I've gotten a lot of email from people asking, "What the fuck did I do to piss you off?" because they can't comment on my site. I had some folks banned. The bans were aimed at two individuals who crossed a line I will NOT see crossed on my site. I had entire IPs blocked to get rid of them.

If you were caught in that large net, trust me about one thing. I am NOT pissed at you. TWO PEOPLE just could not be civilized in the blogosphere and I had to cut a big hole to get rid of them. Rid of them I am, and there's another shitwit asking for it tonight.

I like having open comments. I appreciate flattery, but I also enjoy the contrarians who tell me that I'm full of shit when I am. Hell, I am full of shit a lot of the time.

But my comments are NOT a forum for some fucked-up asshats to insult my friends, bespoil people's reputations and hold court as if THEY were paying for my bandwidth. They don't, and they won't. Period.

I regret banning anyone who didn't deserve it. You have two people to thank for that fact and THEY KNOW WHO THEY ARE.

If you read this blog, you probably know, too.


Just checkin'. My house is clean.

Those where some extreme measures taken but very necessary.

So if I don't agree with you all the time I can expect to banned next?

You can disagree with him, Ralphy. Just don't be an asshole about it. I've disagreed with him before and I'm still commenting.

Mr. G...Ya shoulda used one more word in your answer to Ralphy...Just need to put the word 'again' at the end of the second sentence.
I saw 'Ralphy's' comments under Rob's post about Confederate flags. So, it's basically too late for him not to be one of those, already...but he could try for 'not again'...
Just a thought....

I agree, again, with Stevie. Well put about Ralphy's comment.

I'm not here looking for permission from you people to post on a blog. I'll be upfront. I'm an asshole alot of the time. So what? So aren't alot of you. Are you only allowed to be an asshole when you're in agreement with Acidman? I'd hope to hell not. When I open my blog I hope there are some people to stir the pot not just a bunch of mindless lemmings agreeing with me. All I'm saying is that if there is a line not be crossed, then be forward with me about it and I won't cross it. How about those apples?

Here is what you do A-man:

Create a mirror blog and post to two sites at the same time. Leave this one the way it is, with comments. The other blog would be on blogspot or some such. But this one would not have commenting. People associted with the banned IPs would have a place to go, but the asshat trools would be silenced.

Just checking in -- glad to see you have found a solution, even if it is a bit extreme.

I don't care what he does. His site, his rules, fuck the rest.

Posted by: Kim du Toit on November 10, 2003 02:19 AM

That's right, Kim. Acidman's paying for this bandwidth.

Ralphy, if you want to be an asshole, start your own blog. If you want to be an asshole on someone else's dime, prepare to be banned.

Posted by: Ralph Gizzip on November 10, 2003 11:09 AM

If Acidman wants to ban me he will. Altough I doubt he needs you barking behind his heels like a little dog afraid of being kicked. And why am I an asshole? Because my opinion of the Confederate flag is different than the majority's on this site? You're crossing the line of freedom speech there pal.

Posted by: Ralphy on November 10, 2003 12:17 PM

No Ralphy, you're just a natural-born asshole. I am certain that people other than I have told you that fact before. I'll bet lots of women do that, don't they?

You pathetic fuck. One more and you're gone.

What a waste of keystrokes.

Posted by: Adam on November 10, 2003 04:13 PM

oh here we go again LOL! Glad to see that you found a way to get rid of the others!

Spare me the threats Acidman. If you want to ban me, ban me. I don't think you really care and I sure as hell don't either.

Kind of a pussy way to go though isn't it? Maybe you should add a password like Beermary to enclose yourself with more bootlickers.

Christ, am I the only one that doesn't suck up to you?

So there's the excuse you wanted to ban me. Knock yourself out.
