    Matty is being blocked by BDC?

    One of the most informed, well spoken contributors to this group, IMHO. I can't think it was a posting here in this group that led to this.

    That's crazy.

    I've seen him post elsewhere on BDC, and if anything, he has a dry wit, that's about it.  I can't imagine that he's ever had a post removed for being disrespectful in any way. 

    I hope nothing happened at his place of work, where he perhaps had to cancel his account due to "Big Brother" issues?

    I just happened to notice that his name showed up with recent postings, but nothing is there. If you click on his name, you get this:

    Our editors are reviewing this community member's Page.

    I've never seen this before, and I don't know what happens if you have to cancel an account, but who knows. ???

    Being a curious geek, I tried doing a search on all of BDC forums for "mattyhorn". NOTHING. Do it with yogafriend or jesseyeric or zillagod, you get results.

    Every post has been censored. You said it. That's crazy.

    I was wondering what happened to Matty. I only know him from this forum and he has never been anything but respectful here. Someone might have complained about his avatar; although I am not quite sure why anyone would.

    Ok what did matty do and or say.... I have never seen him say anything out of line.

    I see people all the time calling names and insulting others but not matty.

    What did I miss?

    Nothing. Refer to my previous post about the avatar...if you don't see what I'm suggesting I'll break it down further.

    Hey SDM, jessey, shumi, and anyone else who isn't slaving in the kitchen ...

    I cannot believe this, but I took one look into the eyes of one of my pets this morning (seriously!), and all of a sudden I remembered something out of the blue.

    In the past couple of months, Matty added a statement and a pic of a scanned document to his screen signature that appeared at the bottom of all of his posts.  I thought it looked like a voting ballot, and had to do with the elections in November, but he didn't take it down after the elections were over. 

    So I am pretty sure he was removed due to the political or personal ramifications of that statement and scanned pic.  Someone must have reported it, and instead of asking him to remove it, they banned him.  Not only that, he does not exist at all on BDC, nothing.  That's what really bothered me, too.

    I have seen many accounts on BDC with the "being reviewed"  statement, SDM, b/c I've known many posters who have come online and let other posters know, but they still exist and can still post.  Some of the reasons for that are having a url on their profile for a fundraiser, posting a url to an R-rated site in a comment, or even posting using lots of vulgar language.   Many (most if not all) people just re-register and pick a new screen name if they are banned, but for many of them, they are not completely banned, just specific posts were removed that were the cause of the temporary "review."

    So, Matty, if you are reading this thread, hope all is well with you, and that you re-register.

    Hope everyone has a nice musical Thanksgiving.  Be safe. 

    PS I enjoy absolutely everyone that posts on this forum.  Quality over quantity, and a very cool group, IMHO.

    I know - I thought it was a great avatar. I had a cat that I named Chairman Meow. But having read some of the political posts on this forum, I don't put anything past anyone.

    We all checked that little box when we signed up that says we can be banned for any content deemed objectionable by the BDC staff. Oh Big Brother.

    Thanks Yoga.

    Well, we'll see.  Mattyhorn may resurface. 

    The cool part is the idea that someone from the music forum was banned for "objectionable (political) content" -- that's very RnR.

    The thing about getting banned is that it will appear to you as if your posts are still being admitted, but nobody else can see them. It's possible he could have been removed and not even know it yet.

    Hammah29r was banned from the Sox Front Burner forum for reasons we still don't know....he's never been anything but respectful.   I know I've been told by another poster that I can't have the URL to my website in my signature because I sell things on it and it's like advertising - I asked BDC about it, but I haven't heard anything yet (it's been several months).  It's funny, but I've always considered BDC my non-work site...not sure if that's the correct phrasing, but I belong to a lot of other forums because that's where my fans and target audience lurk (that's kinda like doing PR work).  But I get on this site to actually interact with sports fans (though this time of year I think sometimes avoiding the Sox forums will lead to less ulcers) and music fans and read the news from back home. 

    I don't know what happened to Matty - he's always seemed like a great poster.  Hopefully he'll be back.  But yeah, like Hammah, you can post, but others can't see your posts...so sometimes you have no clue that you've been banned... you just know that people aren't responding to you.

    It would be a shame if Matty's banned.I've always thought he was respectful to other posters and added interesting comments to any thread I've seen him on.I hope he returns soon as Mattyhorn2.This board needs more posters like him.

    Hey Music Board Gang...

    Many, Many Thanks for the support. 

    Don't know what the deal was...some people can be sooo sensitive politically, I gather.  I got rid of the possibly-offending graphic from the uproariously absurd AK senate election.

    Anyhoo...I just keep on' truckin'...like the doo-dah man ...who once told me, "got to play your hand ...sometimes the cards ain't worth a da mn ...if you don't lay 'em down."

    Hey Music Board Gang,

    Many, many thanks for the support.  I wasn't sure what was happening either, but some people can be sooooo sensitive politically...they just don't want to hear what they don't want to hear, y'know?  I guess I have to be careful whose nephew I offend....

    Being banned has turned out to be a cool thing, huh?  A thread in your honor! 

    I was really getting into the conspiracy theories ... oh well. 

    but the real reason I felt as badly as I did was b/c we never got around to a Talking Heads thread, as I remembered you had wanted to settle the score about that (I said I didn't *like* them, I did not invalidate them entirely)

    So maybe we can get a Talking Heads thread going for you before you get banned again? 

    Welcome back

    Many Thanks, again, yoga...

    As the saying goes, you can't keep a good cat down (or something like that).  No hard feelings...just a pesky hairball or two.

    It took several years and several thousand posts, but there's nothing wrong with a fresh start...just like the chinese calligraphers who used to change their names and start again anonymously (semi-obscure art reference).

    And I'm always up for a good topic.

    Cool

    I certainly can understand how people can be a little too sensative.

    A few times I have had people hurl nasty replies at me for the most harmless ( I thought) comments.

    It seems the written ( or typed ) word can sometimes be read differently than it is intended.

    When you frequent these boards , as both of us do, you tend to get a "feel" for certain people and you know they have a sarcastic or funny side. Sometimes people who aren't familiar with some of the regulars can misunderstand.

    I would say that you , Matty, would be one of the last people I would ever expect  to be singled out.

    Yeah - but if Matty is going to defend the Talking Heads, then I have issues with him Tongue out

    Only kidding, everyone has a right to listen to pretentious junk Money mouth

    No really, I'm just joshing - can't help it of some people like the sound of someone else's self-importance Cool

    Seriously, just because Matty thinks The Heads are more than just talkers, you cannot hold that against him; or maybe we can Yell

    Matty - I for one am very glad you have found your way back. And since I actually named one of my cats Chairman Meow back in the mid - 80's, well - no words laft to be said Wink

    Oh, except - Talking Heads - Really? Come on man, I must have seen them a half dozen times back in the old day at CBGB's. Except for Psycho Killer, they were pretty boring.

    Rock on dudes!
