Bill-806, your account is now active again. Please be sure and read your posts before hitting the "add your post" button, then read it again to be certain that your political one liners are completely absent from your baseball posts. You have been out for two weeks; next time will be much longer. Good luck!

[/QUOTE]unilateral ill, welcome back! Try to be a good boy this time so those grouchy mods don't send you back to time out
[/QUOTE]Thanks 67 ...... Hey, as DAD would say.............. "SON, you are sometimes a little missunderstood here" !!!
It starts already i.e. "misunderstood". You are unable or unwilling to accept the fact that what you consider to be harmless "humor" is considered by virtually everyone here to be vile, anti-social and selfish. That's why you will almost certainly be barred again soon; you are unable to admit or learn from your mistakes.
we all know bill is a provocateur, but this is certainly a bridge too far.
Do people really have this much time on their hands to parse every word he utters. I don't even think his marginally quasi-political one liners are a big deal. I forget the most recent phrase he was banned for, but it was so innocuous that i found it beyond belief. While there have been any number of truly offensive posts & threads by billy, harping on "misunderstood" is so benign that it only marginalizes the outrage when he actually will step back over the line.
this is just silly
I don't have any problem with Sonic's post. Sonics just laid it on the line to him.
Bill has been banned three times by his own admission and yet he comes back saying that the only issue is that he's "misunderstood".
If he believes in his own mind that it's a "misunderstanding" and that most of us don't recognize his sense of humor then Sonic's post should serve as a wake-up call to him. If he doesn't believe it then he's only here to disrupt the forum and IMO there's no place for that.
Bill has dug himself a hole by being banned three times. He's no longer on even footing with everyone else here. Everything he does is going to receive more scrutiny than the rest of us, just as when there's a home invasion and robbery the first ones the police talk to are people with a history of home invasions. He needs to do exactly what Mod 2 has told him to do (at least twice). Before he hits "Add your post" he needs to read what he's posted and be aware that anything he says may be taken in the worst possible light.
Those who rush to his defense are enabling someone who's already been banned three times and may very well be headed for #4. If you want him here do him a favor. Tell him what he's doing wrong and let him alter his behavior. I tried it (twice) and it didn't work. Maybe someone else - like Sonics - will have better luck.
S5, I completely get where you are coming from, & it was patently obvious that billy was having fun with the "misunderstood" comment after being slapped down. I choose to think of it as billy's attempt at self-effacing humor, but i know better. Either way, i certainly never allow somebody else to have such an effect on my enjoyment of something. I choose to think of him as relatively harmless. Often annoying, but nothing I'm going to lose sleep over. He knows he's on a short leash, & if he needs to save face, it's no skin off my arss. To jump right on that one little thing is just a bit crazy making. Let it go. Just ignore. If he really steps out of line, report it here, & i have no doubt he will be sent for a major to the penalty box. Otherwise, you're just gonna go nuts hounding this rabbit.
let's just try some unilateral disarmament.
