New member LedBuy is a troublemaker. I reported him/her to SB. He asked me how many flashlight I have, and I told him/her around 60. He/her then went off telling me I had mental problems and accused me of being female. Whe the hell is that all about?

Lately it seems there are lots of “harsh” posts, derailed threads, misunderstandings and word abuse!
I do understand that we have “free speech”, and that we are free to express our ideas, even if they are conflicting with those from other members.

BUT, I always remember 2 threads when I have the impulse to answer to some of those:
http://budgetlightforum.com/forum/misc/siterules
http://budgetlightforum.com/node/39504

It helps me to keep my track here, and I guess it may help to keep the friendliness that we have on this forum!
Thumbs Up

I’ve read that and hence my bump on this thread, cause I didn’t want to answer on that thread nor to “fire up” the posting!
I would say “never mind, you don’t need to prove anything to him or her!” Wink

I’m sure you are a flashaholic and proud of that as I am and many other members here are! Cool
And there is nothing wrong with that Wink

There was a thread on it, and the overall “feel” of BLF has changed. It is still there, but is being shadowed by a lot of other “feels” now, for lack of better terminology…

I’m reasonably certain that’s the newest incarnation of FireFlyMod. Planned obsolescence ranting & oblique digs at the US in the music thread are pretty sure signs.

When I say “derailed” is mostly when “insults” or very conflicting themes are being posted, offending people directly! I know that many threads get derailed regarding the “original” issue/theme, and I guess that it is one nice thing as it opens some possibilities to discuss new themes or ideas!
Diversity of opinions or ideas are positive when contributing to some development or leading to a nice “feeling”, but it doesn’t mean that we need to offend each other Wink
I like being “here”, so I appreciate the good vibe this forum normally has Cool

It's that simple. Smile Trolls do what they do because they are immature and like to get a reaction out of people. They will never change their ways if somebody with good intentions tries to counsel them. And they will get even worse if other users fight with them or insult them back. So, please try to use self control, and do not respond in any way, shape, or form.

Thanks to SB, LedBuy is no longer. That said, I’m friendly to all. I don’t go out of my way to make anyone feel bad even though I might no agree with what they are saying. I just don’t comment. It seems some new members want to make a mark for themselves. They’re just doing it the wrong way.

Uh, No. Before. Right after he posted it. I was in the thread at the time.

The offending comment (his) was since removed

SB’s the owner/admin of this forum. He’s down to earth and very fair to BLF members. He just doesn’t willy-nilly ban people. He just takes out the garbage on occasion. The answer to your question, yes, SB is the only one who decides to ban people.

Are you the same person than SB, using another ID?

What?? No, I’m not SB. Are you LedBuy reincarnated?

Feeling somewhat refreshed. I'd stayed up for 22.5 hours then couldn't take it anymore. This old guy needed a cat nap.

Edit-- I was thinking the same!!

Edit--2

Considering the temps where you are, wouldn't a cup of glycerol be more effective? Maybe toss in a couple shots of Espresso Big Smile
