Will be logging in from time to time to check my PM box that usually has plenty of questions for me from the membership here.
I will not be posting any more on this Kiss A$$ Forum after my post count reaches 6,666 which is going to be very soon that's if these KA'es stop deleting my post I'll get there in a day or two..
Leaving after 6,666 Elf favorite Number and a curtain 10% off vendor runs away from it!! :devil:

Vic, since you 'left' there's been more "Bum'n'Blow" posts by Windrestrictor than there were before!

Come back! Please!

I think it is a grumpy old man move. He is missing Mike, making a trip over to see him. Maybe the two of them together will join forces and come back stronger than ever!!!

Hey Vic, I miss your posts, same as Mike's. The place needs you, and how will I know if there is another set of mirrors?

Stand and fight, you know that. If you truly feel it is problem, work with the Mods to correct it. Your a sailor, you don't pull up your panties and run.

Get your butt and Mikes back here. Not the same without you two. Maybe a little smoother in areas with out Mike, but love the guy and his dry sense of humor!

I will give you a call this evening, Mike to.

Just My Thoughts......

I agree with skersfan, IMO this is kinda like suicide, or an easy way out. Whatever your beefs are, I'm sure that they can be worked out, Robo seems like a great listener.

I for one would also would miss your posts, I have learned so much from you and Mike as well. As much as I think Mike is a train wreck waiting to happen, I have learned a lot from him and his posts and I thank him for that. At least every second or third one is very informative, I have said it before and I will say it again, Mike is a go to guy for Sky/Solstice information and I respect that. I may not agree with his methods or his posts but I do respect him as well as you.

Terry
:cheers:

The reason his post count is not 6,666 is because he had a bunch of posts with just _______________ to run it up and I combined them into one post. Find another way to run up your post count other than just posting empty space. Not hard to do. A few "Hey, great comment!" posts over multiple threads would do it.

The big issue Marvic has right now is he doesn't like that a vendor can have an advertisement in their signature and then posts simple replies like the example above putting their signature, and thus the ad, in multiple places on the forum.

The fact is vendors who are allowed to do that pay for that privilege. The vendor in question has not done anything over the top here. Marvic feels they have and he wants us to stop it. I have listened to Marvic and the vendor in question and my decision stands that there is no reason to stop the vendor from participating like they have been. There is some belief that MARVIC's issue may go further than just this vendor's advertising strategy and that he may have a person beef with the vendor. Why that may be I will not speculate on.

It comes down to Marvic wants the forum to be one way and it's not. He then has four choices. He can either accept the forum is as it is and continue to participate, he can walk away and choose not to participate, he can continue trying to fight to change forum policy through mature and civilized methods, or he can protest the policy in an immature fashion until he gets banned. If he is unwilling to accept the policy and is unwilling to try and change it in a mature fashion, I feel walking away from the forum is an acceptable solution for him and is far better than the last option.

I hope he comes back one day as he is a valuable resource to this community. I feel getting this upset over a single line of text in someone's signature is a bit of an overreaction and if he does have a problem with this vendor I hope he can talk it out with forum management and the vendor so he, the vendor, and the forum can move on. If he doesn't come back, that is his decision and I respect that as well.

Hey, I understand the basic premise of Marvic's overt gripe. I wonder how many trees have been destroyed to make up all the ads I get in the mail that go right to the recycle bin. I have an email address setup just for use on sites that will probably wind up generating spam mail. On TV, radio, email, forums, Facebook, Google, Yahoo News, billboards, buses, license plate frames...we are subjected to advertising EVERYWHERE. I get it.

But honestly, what the Vendors do here is really nothing. To me, a signature in a forum member's post is just that, a signature. I can glance at it and know who wrote the post without seeing their avatar or name. It is so affective that I generally don't even consciously read the signature, just the size, color, format, etc. of it while reading through posts is enough to identify the poster. So for me, a signature line is never distracting as it is only a visual cue for me to know who wrote the post. If it was so bad as to get my attention beyond that limited scope, then I could see a problem. That's not what we're talking about here though.

You know, I don't know...that's a good question.

...Investigating...

Yes, yes you do.

Click on User CP (upper right corner area) and then click on Edit Options under the Options and Settings menu located in the left hand menu area of the User CP page.

Scroll down that page and under Thread Display Options you have the ability to check or un check the Show Signatures box.

Of course this means it will hide ALL signatures in ALL threads, not just from one individual user.

Well that does work quite well! And as far as he's pissed at the aforementioned I see now that Bud Kisser is on his **** list.

MarlboroMike what do you think about all this?
