Sorry, my internet has been down a while, and I was trying to post from my phone earlier (but it didn't work too well, so something may be lost from then in my response now).
I agree with you, banned; it sucks seeing some folks gang up on someone because of bullshit. I miss Big Keg Shandy, but I respect his option not to post anymore; he's done a better job than anyone I've seen "not coming back", including diggler. Soft skin may not cut it here, generally, but I hate it when good people get turned off by that same "group" mentality.
Eric and I talked about a lot of this stuff a long time ago; the board does a pretty good job policing itself, but sometimes it can get out of hand.
As for Nanne, I thought I had been pretty clear a while back when I said that the anti-euro sentiment was all in good fun, at least on my part. France may be a third-world country, but that doesn't mean I don't hope to go there one day to hang out with Piero, Oliver, and Pascal.
Real or imagined, the feelings Nanne has towards TB, this board, or the people who post (including myself) have apparently affected him, and now knowing that it affects his health, I hope that in the future it doesn't bother him nearly as much, for his own sake. Otherwise, I suggest he take the great Punk Rock Pat's advice, as he doesn't even read the board anymore because "why read some shit that raises my blood pressure".
As I've said, I've never met Nanne. I don't know his mind. I have tried to explain stuff to him before on here, but it only gets him more upset and he thinks people are out to get him (I've recieved personal e-mails from him, but never posted them, and I wouldn't; I only would post crazy stuff, like diggler's unfounded lawsuit threats, because it was so ridiculous). I know nothing about the external drama he feels brought to him. I've posted here trying to let him know everything is o.k., but apparently as Reatard would sing, "Things are moving" around him all the time, and he produces false sums from questionable social math.
I don't know what to say to Nanne other than
2. I don't know of anyone "out to get you"
3. I don't give a fuck what you think about "moderators"
4. Anti-European sentiment isn't real; it's a joke
5. I have no qualms against your label
6. I have no qualms against you
7. I've never edited any responses from you; what goes on the internet stays on the internet.
8. Sorry you're sick
9. The edit button works for three minutes. This was established over two years ago, and there's a reason for it.
10. I don't really care, but I'm trying to reach out to you one more time
This said, Nanne will now tell me about me being a facist, "ed o" is out to get him, and disect phrases of my rant into paranoid arguments.
11. I could give two fucks.
