[mod]The following was part of an April Fools Joke and should not be taken seriously

Running an internet site comes with many challenges. You need to deal with all sorts of personalities and need to understand that not everyone can read the same words and take it in the way it was meant to be taken. The one thing you never want to have to address is the removal of a long time user from our community.
The last few weeks have made me think that I needed to take action but the events from yesterday brought me to the realization that I must ask a user to no long visit PachisloDB.com.
During my investigations over the last few weeks I realized that this user was playing both sides of arguments just to stir up some excitement for their own amusements. So nobody needs to wonder who is it I have told Lou that his presence is no longer desired here.
I had an idea for April Fools day to put up a "For Sale" sign on the main page as well as changing the logo at the top. I was going to post a message stating that the site was for sale and I was no longer interested in the hobby. My idea was to put it up late in the day so that people might not realize that it was still April Fools day. Then Lou comes along and spoils my fun by putting stuff in the shout box like a teenager. I thought he was a friend but I guess I should choose my friends better.
My decision did not come easy but it is final and I do not wish to discuss this any further.[/mod]

Well I must say I am in SHOCK. I don't see that Lou deserves such a harsh punishment for letting the cat out of the bag concerning the April fools joke.

I have really been pondering what I should say all day long. Now that I have calmed down, I really have to say... Well I can't :tongue: :rambo: :thumbdown: :hmph:

While I'm not the most active member here, I did see some of what went down in the shoutbox. Too bad....

It is time to let the :cat: out of the bag. Lou came to me with the idea of banning him for a April Fools joke. So he started laying the ground work later in the day on the 1st. I though what better way to steer people away from detecting it as a joke but to make the excuse is that he blew my plans for an April Fools joke and that is the reason for his ban

So....

Chris did such a good job that I was beginning to believe it myself :!:
It's good to be unbanned! 8)

Well I agree with Wayne, but there were a few things that kinda tipped me off to the possible aruse.

First was the wording Chris used, the second was the fact that he didn't lock the subject. I did find out eairly on but kept quiet.

Anyway, welcome back Lou... Good to have you un-banished.
But for the record I was taken in for a bit..

A simple check near the bottom of the main forum page attested to the fact that Lou logged in both Monday and Tuesday.

That was a small flaw in the plan, but a risk decided worth taking.

I suspected an April fools joke since Lou's account appeared active. Nice one.....
