Banned on CPF - WTF?

I honestly don't understand what I did wrong. The last thing I posted was a recommendation on a 2AA light. Is this a common practice around there? Ban people with a retarded explanation?

 

Also, what is ass baiting?

Nevermind, I finally found it. From last week.

 

Someone has a sandy vagina. I'm removing all accounts from CPF. People there are asshats.

Ignorance is no excuse for failing basic English. But if DM51's quotes hold any truth, then you were baiting him. Unless, of course, you too failed basic English. But who am I to say anything about such things, I have been known to flame people using the word "defiantly" wrongly. "It is defiantly a good buy!" WTF?!

 

PS. I laughed hard at "ass baiting" Laughing

And not just any ass, Smart-Ass baiting. Congrats. Wear the ban as a crown of honor.

next thing you know, I'll get banned there for asking a dumb-ass question.

Rats, finally sold my 2010 509hp Mustang...now I can buy more lights!

Sold the red one too! Now guess what I drive, doing my penance for 500 hp commuters...

If it wasn't obvious that I was being jocular about the misspelling of a word then we need an "I'm only screwing with you" font.

Actually, I had to go FIND that explanation. The thing about "illegal lighting" was from over a year ago and again, only joking. The mods over there have a serious case of swollen head.

As per the thread I participated in, the OP wanted to know a good quality kit to put in his halogen projectors.

I told him DDM was decent for the money and a shitstorm ensued. This is where I took it to the absurd level.

After everyone was done telling him that the kits were illegal and he was a bad person for even thinking about doing such a thing I told him that he will be okay using the kit as HID projectors are just halogen projectors turned up side down. The comments that came after that was simply amazing. Everyone there thought I was serious. So, I explained to them that it allowed the light to light up more of the things ahead of you instead of the road directly ahead of you actually giving you better night vision. Holy crap, shouldn't have done that! Here comes "DM" threatening me with the banhammer because NO ONE sees the obvious joke.

It should be called Aspergers forum instead of candlepower forum.

Well, I'd assume it's the process of luring an ass out of hiding and making it show itself in the open. And you have just managed to bait the biggest ass of all over there. Congratulations!

Actually, I think I'm going to cancel my membership over there and keep it exclusive here. I do like CPFMarketplace.com though as that is how I found out about Spark lights. I LOVE my Spark lights.

A CPF primer. These are the CPF rules:


1. Registration and password information
2. Email to Webmaster
3. Siglines, Avatars and Images
4. Flaming/Baiting/Trolling/Banning
5. Posting articles and links
6. Advertising and Shilling on CandlePowerForums
7. Read the Stickies & Announcements!!
8. Whining and complaining about the rules
9. Double and cross posting
10. Fundraisers & Donations
11. Disclaimer
12. Reposting Private Communication

The only ones you need to worry about are Rule 6, 8, and 12.

Rule 6 means that you can't talk about anything that doesn't make CPF money in some manner. If you are about to post ask yourself "is this an interesting subject?" If it is, don't post as you will be in violation of Rule 6.

Rule 8 means that when your post/thread disappears you can't ask why. If your link is deleted citing Rule 6 you can't ask for the rule to be explained.

Rule 12 means that when you get a nasty PM from a moderator you can't share that experience with anyone else.

Red headache inducing banners warning you about what will and will not go toward your "post count"  are a form of welcoming you to "our family".

I hope this has cleared things up and will allow for a more orderly and obedient experience next time you visit CPF.  Please wipe you feet and wash you hands before entering...single file..and please keep the noise level down.

Thank you.

anyone got any screen wipes. I just sprayed coffee all over my screen. What a laugh!

My suggestion to KlowD9x is to create a new username " smart-ass_baiter".  and use this pic as your avatar

See how long it takes to get banned.

BLF, home for the wayward CPF'er! I was turned on to this forum, my new home after nearly being banned.  I had my post deleted when I violated rule number 5.  As others have posted links I think it's an Orwellian hypocrisy that I can't do the same.  (I must be one of the less equal pigs). I was pissed the moderator said I violated rule number six despite the fact that I unintentionally violated rule number 5! I then broke rule number six and 8 I think by questioning the moderator's ethics and asking him to explain himself. Then I broke rule number 12. I guess I was on a role. 

I'm probably gonna get myself banned for "ass-baiting" some guy that is looking to design and sell 26650 hosts.  I suggested that he do tooling on the body like JetBeam does on its titanium bodies as it would tie the lines together rather nicely.  The guy said in his response that he would not copy someone elses design.  Moron had already copied the P60 drop in housing, Ronac's cooling bezel and a switch housing form SolarForce.  So I told him he should be aware that some guy named Ronac had copied his bezel and was calling it cryos something and selling it as well some chinese company had copied his switch and were selling it too. Maybe they haven't banned me yet 'cause I told him in the post that I was giving him crap and to mellow out.  

A number of people PM'd me and recommended I come here.  I was immediately welcomed and made to feel at home.  What a difference!

Klow, clearly the problem is that you have a sense of humor. I don't believe that is allowed on CPF. LOL

I've got lots of bright ideas.
