how come you guys don't post anymore?

Somebody at Draco's company was very naughty and posted something very bad (think troll) two days ago (I don't know what it was).
The message was deleted, and they blocked that user, by blocking messages from the user's ISP server. Since Draco has the same ISP server, he is also blocked. I fear we'll never see Draco here again. ;( There goes all our fun and games, WC vs the World contests!
I'm sure he'll have something to say about it when the WC reopens.

It's actually not an ISP address. It's an IP (Internet Protocol) address. ISPs handout IPs to users.
So if I were signing on via att.net (which I'm not) and got banned (which I don't plan on), other att.net users wouldn't get banned. Even I wouldn't be banned, other than having to re-register, since dial-ups give you a different IP address every time you connect.
What I think happened to Draco was that someone else at his company acted up and got the company's IP address banned. Since most large companies have permanent IP addresses, this does work to keep the ban-ee away, but it also bans everyone else from the same company. Again, this is speculation--I have not talked about this with Traci.

I've heard from Draco, and he confirms what Obi said.
He's trying to recruit one of the chicks to run the contest for him...after being involved in one of his games in the past...I'm a little hesitant to get involved!

The solution seems obvious: Draco needs to find a new job.
Anyone else from the WC willing to trade Ammie to the Rebel Forum for Andy Lang? Steve White seems anxious to deal.

I think after reading some of Andy's posts, we all agree we prefer Ammie (even BEFORE reading his posts! :smile:)
11-08-2001, 10:57 AM
How about trading Kimi instead of Andy? I would feel infinitely less secure over here though if that happened.
11-08-2001, 11:04 AM
No go on the Ammie trade. I can't think of a single thing you've got over here that would convince me to part with her!

Cynical Realist...are you out there?
Can I post my Survivor picks here?
I can't access my email anymore... :sad:

I think they're in line for the movie.
Sad thing is, it's for the second showing.

Yes you can post them here, e-mail them to me, post in the P/C Thread "We're bacccck" or post them on the WC tonight after 5:00 if it reopens tonight.
Also the President is speaking tonight, so you may have an extra half hour or more to make your picks!

I'm flattered (I think) :smile:

Yeah, we would consider a trade for Kimi, too. But we want a WC person whose name starts with K.
Don't try to get out of taking Andy. As they say at the fast-food place, NO SUBSTUTIONS.

We had a Kaufmann, but I'm rather fond of her new personality, and he doesn't post under Kaufmann anymore...
11-09-2001, 10:30 PM
Intriguing use of gender of those pronouns.
11-09-2001, 11:22 PM
Ammie is correct. Kaufmann was posting as a female, but eventally confessed (or was outed??) as a male. Later he killed the kaufmann name and is now posting as ###, as a male.
I can't think of any WC poster that starts with K, would an M do??
Damn, Dirty Ape

Kimi for Mulan? I'm all over that! Although Mulan would have a pretty big holster to fill.
Mulan, I know you can handle a samurai sword, but how are you with an H&K P7 M8?
this thread resembles an expose' on notes passed in 7th grade.
