Default A constructive idea out of a bad situation

Hope i dont get flammed for this.

And NO ONE start a flame war


But here is a way to support purpledino motorsports and BC at the same time

http://www.cafepress.com/bonclubstore

(Link Edited by Topic Author)


Order your Purpledino motorsport shirts, coaster, wall clock, ect. Wear it (or show it off) proud and support what he represents in a person and a former member and also support the club by buying them (because they get the site finace charge)

TJ, please explain why Boosty needs support, and how this is going to benefit him.

Also explain to me why a member was BANNED from this Forum with UNANIMOUS Staff consent, and we have a topic in the lounge about this?

Why would we condone this action for a banned member of the Forum, on the very Forum we are tasked with managing?

Put yourself in our shoes, and answer my questions.

Not going to delete.

You said 'support Boosty'. But it doesn't benefit him. So where do the profits go? If not to him, how does it help? Is he strapped for money?

This boosty thing needs to die, TJ. There are 3 or 4 members that just can't let it go. You're one of them. I know you may not understand, but you have to come to terms with the fact that there were ZERO dissenters amongst the Staff. It gets closer and closer every day to the point that we have to spill the ugly beans in public to justify our actions.

Do you think that would be good for you, Boosty, or the Forum? Is this what he wants? He was banned from this Forum. Why would we support a 'support boosty' campaign?

I don't think it'* a bad idea. Bill has helped enough people on BC to be eligible for support.

:edit:
Don't the profits go toward BC anyways?

WOW. Actually if you look wren, you will see where in a thrend not more then what 25 minutes ago, i said to join NEBC if you wanted to talk to bill and not flame on here. Trying to get it to calm down



Yea, i am keeping stuff going, and this and that. Yea, alright. Actually i am being civil and getting flammed. Exactly what i said not to do.


Sorry for the idea, sorry for bringing it up. Sorry for being civil. I truely dont know why things get turned for the bad. Tried to help some people get some purpledino motorsports stuff and make the club some money


Yea, i am the bad guy. I truely dont know what to say to you. And i am almost never lost for words

A constructive idea out of a bad situation? More like a bad idea out of a destructive situation.

TJ, you're not getting flamed by anyone. Go back and read.

You're starting a support campaign for a BANNED MEMBER. Think about it. I'm quite sure Bill would be pretty damn upset if he saw this posted AGAIN on this Forum.

This topic still exists, simply because a CLEAR message needs to be sent. You are not being flamed. You are getting an explanation. I hope you get a clearer understanding from this. He was banned from this Forum by unanimous Staff consent. Not that we needed it, but there were NO dissenters anyway.
