So back to my question...
What if I were to put an actual official title that I have...like my job title or something...
I.E. : Official McDonald'* burger flipper of BC
Official Ace Hardware register clerk of BC
Official high school counselor of BC
Would that be acceptable? I mean, you can't argue that the 'donkey puncher' part is vulgar, because it obviously is acceptable here.
Like I said...just trying to make a point, not start a fight. I hope no one takes offense.
I'm actually a pretty cool guy and so is Kris. I'm sure some of you recognize that.
Ask Kris to share his PM'* from me to him. That explains the issue quite well. We have this policy because of past abuse, and it stands. There is no room for argument on this one.
When an Administrator or Moderator warns a member about something, they are expected to act. We have rules, policies and guidelines that dictate how this board is operated on a daily basis. Much of this comes from the Founder/Owner of the site, and we are expected to fulfill his wishes in the way we do our jobs.
When you are asked to change your signature, you do it. Being here is not a right. You are a member at our discretion. If you don't like the way this forum runs, you aren't being forced to be here. Abide by our rules and style, or find a Forum that suits your needs better.
Leaving my comments in the signature to proclaim to the world "I'm a martyr, I'm being repressed" is childish. Posting all this publicly was the wrong approach. As you can see from the replies in this topic and the locked one that came before it, the other members of this Forum understand how it runs, and respect the Staff decisions, and the reasons for those decisions.
We are not an EXLUSIVE Forum. We have members here that don't have Bonnevilles, but at the same time, they came here for reasons other than to make a statement for a 'repressed' friend. We don't appreciate this type of posting, because quite frankly, we have better things to do.
The bottom line for Kris is this: If you don't like it, you're welcome to go somewhere else.
If you like it here, we'd love to have you stay, and get along, follow the flow, and get along.
I'll leave this unlocked for the time being.
