This isn't the first time this happened. No one was singled out iirc, just an internet gremlin having fun.

Either that or your all being set up for the ban hammer.

I PM'd him this afternoon. I am being patient about it.

It cannot be bans (or rather, is probably not bans), because of the wide range of people who cannot get in.

I would usually blame UDawg...but since he has not posted here, I will blame you instead. Jerk. :P

It is not down for everyone, just some of us. Personally, I do miss it. I think the most intelligent people are drawn there, and I have learned a great deal from the people there.

I remember when we first asked Mike to create it, Udawg, Vamps, myself, Psycho, 1stflight, Sytaylor, Bu and co (it's late, I don't recall some of the other regular posters back then).

It WAS about content and discussion. Not the b.s. it devolved to.

I think perhaps it should just be locked away for a good time. Heck, there wasn't even any moderation in there anymore so it had basically devolved into a free-for-all.

I miss the good old days from WAAAAY back when

No offense alpha, but it's retarded comments and generalizations like this that make me cheer the fact that this section is currently on hiatus.



The fact that a perfectly decent place just happened to denigrate to the level as pretty much every other boards political/religious discussion board is simply a shame.

Oh no...maybe we're banned from posting on it.

It was my first post. I posted a question about, "what is terrorism?" and when I came back I couldn't see the forum anymore and my post doesn't exist in my post history. It just never was.

I can't believe I said anything so radical or offensive. I didn't even claim a position just asked questions.

Maybe I'll just stick to questions about Nvidia drivers and games.

I think the forum was interesting, and I believe most discussions there were held on an intellectual level. I learned alot from it.

Hmm...I take it you find south park offensive then?

But what hiatus are you talking about anyways though? It works fine for me.

I can get back in now. Odd, but then again what about the Internet is not odd.
