It was nice of you to take the time to explain your reasons to close the thread about rudeness and what all that included the political reference to Old Biscuit. Your response was well written.
I don't remember him ever posting anything other than trying to steer people in the right direction on system issues with their RVs. Did I miss something?
If nothing else his posts should live on to help others unless it was his choice to have them wiped.

I agree that the information He gave out was useful and sometimes very funny.

This Google Search will give you quite a few pages of his posts you can page thru,it can be used to search specific topics if you want,

Will he ever be given the chance to come back and continue to give expert advice?

As was pointed out in the other thread, you can engage with this fellow all you want on that "other" forum. Just be prepared to filter out a large portion of crazy.

Y'all must be soft..... When asking ANYTHING on here, you had better be prepared for anything and everything... Old Biscuit was more than willing to " give it" BUT... that almost always came with very valuable information...

It's folks like him that got me here in the first place many moons ago....

I never really had a beef with him. I think some of the other mods might have, but he and I were never on bad terms.

Looking through our notes I see that it will be one year tomorrow since we closed his account. Without overcomplicating the explanation, there are two ways to close a member's account:

* Simple Ban: Admin deletes the account and the member can't log in anymore, but the member's posts remain intact. If you search for the member or try to click their profile from one of their posts, you'll be sent to the "Member Not Found" page. This is the most common form of disabling (banning) an account.

* Purge & Ban: This is the nuclear option and it's more common for spammers. When the account is banned/deleted, so are all of their posts. There are no traces of the member's activity except for mentions that other members post, like quoted posts, etc.

Looking at Admin's notes, it looks like Admin reluctantly banned Old Biscuit after more than one request. I don't see any mention of a purge though, so his posts should still remain.

Having said that, our Search here is pretty unreliable. You can search google though if you specify the site. Something like:

site: rv.net "Old-Biscuit" <-- delete the space between the colon and the "r". I added the space, otherwise those two characters make an [emoticon].

That search should find all of his posts here. The google results will take you to the printable version of the page, which is a pain. You can backspace over the print stuff at the end of the link to get to the normal pages though.

Printable example: https://www.rv.net/forum/index.cfm/fuseaction/thread/tid/28620655/print/true.cfm

Regular Page: https://www.rv.net/forum/index.cfm/fuseaction/thread/tid/28620655

It's not as easy as just using the forum Search, but google will find things that our cranky old search sometimes can't find.

YEP, I NEVER BLOCK ANYONE!!! Everyone has something to add. Most Moderators let things ride up to a point of hatred then drop the hammer. But there is one that IMHO is too quick on the draw and will NOT explain why there was discipline as the others will happily give reason.

And some mods also have no sense of humor. Not talking about here but on another unnamed owners site I got booted for trying to sell after I said "If you believe that I have oceanfront property in Utah that you might like". Apparently some sites have moderators that are geographically challenged also. I can get sarcastic but have not had any problems on here yet except for Good Sam status not showing up.
