I've just noticed that… HE'S BACK!!
Although Ernie and I barely ever seem to see eye to eye he’s always seemed quite reasonable and I haven’t seen him overstep the line more than several others.
Assuming this is not the North Korean branch of STW, can anyone shed any light on what he did to get banned? Or is this verboten?
I am still not cliquey enough on here to know whether I’ve just signed my own ban warrant, but I am curious nonetheless. Or is it a banning offence to ask about bans?Posted 4 years ago
Thanks for the welcoming comments – specially from you esselgruntfuttock 🙂 Actually it was my comment on your thread that got me a 2 month ban esselgruntfuttock http://singletrackworld.com/forum/topic/housing-benefit-how-can-i#post-5498756 Apparently I was “wading in looking for an argument”. Let that be a warning! Although to be fair I hadn’t received any sort of warning or ban for over a year – so I was probably well overdue for one anyway.

Well it’s deeply frowned upon at least, so you’re pushing your luck asking.Posted 4 years agoesselgruntfuttockMember
Ahh yes, I remember that one, but just to inform you, my tenant WAS claiming housing benefit (but spending it on more important stuff like fags & booze & a dog, which has left a nasty smell in the now uninhabitable house, cos he’s left in a RIGHT state, scruffy git)Posted 4 years ago
Oh, & budgies. He was breeding budgies as well.
I’m going back tomorrow with some more bleach & disinfectant. 😆
Yes Duckman, I’m sure the fact that I have on many previous occasions argued, ie expressed an opinion not necessarily shared by everyone, was ‘taken into account’. Although as I have already mentioned I hadn’t received any sort of warning for over a year, which is a bit strange.
And I had to chuckle when I saw simonfbarnes recently claim that he has only been “banned for a total of 34 hours” …. because of course he never likes to argue ! 🙂

Out of interest I went to check as I didn’t know why you’d been banned. Having read back, I’d hazard that if you can’t tell the difference between “expressing an opinion” and “arguing,” that might go a long way towards explaining why your cumulative warnings for arguing now run to double figures (not including warnings for other things).Posted 4 years ago
Yes Cougar I argue, especially on political threads, terrible isn’t it ? :rolls eyes:
Just like you also do yourself on those seemingly endless religious threads which above all else epitomise pointless arguing. Or is that just expressing an opinion ?
You know as well as I do that the goalposts are moved according to the desired result. I think simonfbarnes (arguer extraordinaire) recent claim that he has only been “banned for a total of 34 hours” proves that, as does the fact that I had not received any sort of warning or ban for over a year. Or would you suggest that it’s probably because I hadn’t argued for over a year ? 😀Posted 4 years agohoraMember
Ernie are you arguing? You have had numerous warnings/bans before and you havent learnt? Ffs just use and enjoy the forum. Ive been banned before. The first was when that Fred fella complained about me putting up pirate images of Somalians. Apparently it was racist to him. Get over it.
Ernie are the mods paid? Or do you think they monitor the forum for free in their free time dude.
Im not looking for a ‘debate’ btw. Many forums around.Posted 4 years agoyossarianMember
Why are you focusing on Rudeboy’s post ? winstonsmith has offered you the perfect solution and yet you haven’t commented on that.
You asked if you could find out whether a tenant was claiming housing benefit, winstonsmith has told you how to do it, and how you can get the housing benefit paid directly to you.
Isn’t that what you wanted to know ?
You got a 2 month ban for that?!?!
Holy shit.Posted 4 years ago
