Just thought I’d sign off by wishing everybody on here a very merry Christmas and a happy and prosperous 2023. This will be my last Nuts post and I’d like to thank all the contributors for their discussions and opinions over the years but especially Sluffy for in my view completely ruining the site with his selfish and inconsiderate attitudes over banning other posters.
FFS stop being so soft.
I have banned ONE person that being Wanderlust.
I banned him because people were sick to death of how him and I reacted to each other.
Because I banned him it meant that I too had to stop posting for a while, so I didn't ban him lightly or out of any personal gain or satisfaction.
I reasoned that Wanderlust would return again to his Hoppy510 account on Wanderers Ways as he clearly needs validation for his opinions he holds so dear and he obviously isn't getting them in his private life - hence why he posts the stuff he obsesses about so much on here about.
(Fwiw I found it hilariously funny that after denying multiple times that he wasn't the person behind the Hoppy510 account that one of the first things he did was to change the account name to 'Wanderlust' - a classic example of how he rather tells lies when found out rather than hold his hand up like the rest of us do!).
I also noted that the last time he was banned from here and set up his Hoppy510 account on ww that it took them about 4 or 5 weeks to suss him out, call out his rantings and then pretty much ignore him from then on, so much so that he virtually stopped posting on there and contacted Norpig to see if I would lift his ban on here - which I eventually did.
I suspected that much the same would happen this time too.
I'm not the sort of person who takes social media seriously, nor carries a grudge either, so I'm indifferent to him returning or not if the current ban was lifted BUT what I didn't want was him to return to his behaviour on here as before which led directly to the continuation of the Wanderlust and Sluffy show that we've all had to endured for the last three years or more.
I wanted him to realise that those days have gone and that he HAD to want to change his ways if he decided to return, otherwise what point was there in returning at all?
I don't even want much from him other than to behave like the rest of us do, namely that if he gets something wrong, accept he has, and not try to wriggle out of it and go through all the lies and contortions he does to try to pretended he hadn't.
I don't believe that is unreasonable, do you? Does anyone?
Also fwiw there are three others on here with Admin powers who could if they wished have lifted Wanderlust ban at anytime but none of them have.
I'd put my case to them as I have done to you here and Wanderlust remains banned, so what does that tell you?
I had intended to return at the start of the New Year and unban Wanderlust at the same time, with the proviso that if he intended to carry on the way he had, not accepting and acknowledging when he is wrong and move on from it, that his next ban would be the final one with no return - and that we move on without him anymore.
I'll stick to that plan which will give Wanderlust some time to reflect on whether or not he would want to return and if so whether or not he wants to change his behaviour to fit in with the rest of us or not.
Then again 63 you could do what Natasha says and start your own forum as no matter how much you try you (and Wanderlust) will never be embraced on ww, as you aren't part of the 'group think' on there and never will be.
Anyway if you still intend to leave then thank you for all your contributions to making Nuts as good as it was and you will be missed.
Best of luck on ww too!
