Why GIBBO was suspended,...

Recommended Posts

What the hell?! Gibbo's suspended? Mummy's gone, permanently? Why is Mummy gone/banned? Who else? Seems some of the most interesting and funny characters on here are now gone, and right after I resubbed damn it. Why was SIA banned? Didn't Mummy give an explanation here about how he was accused of being webieda(sp) and other untrue accusations and gave a link to a blog/website to prove his point? Agree with Barbara1 about Mummy, very smart and nice guy. I think if people are posting while possibly drunk, stoned or whatever and they get a little out of hand, a little cooling off period (like the next day) could be done.

 

Oh big whoop about swearing, grow a skin, what is this high school? Bono can swear and flip off the world and it's officially posted on here, but God forbid anyone gets a little out of hand on the boards. Unless someone is verbally viciously attacking someone else on a message board continuously, I never see a need for banning. How boring a world if there isn't some confrontation, arguements sometimes.

 

I hope Gibbo comes back, but since everyone seems to have gone to FB, what's the point?

agree very much with surrender. but mummy = weibeda. he even posted pics from his weibeda-period posing with other fans outside a concert. but he said as weibeda he never harrassed someone, or hacked or 'stalked'. but there was this other character in the old zoo, who did do all this and some thought that was him too. he strongly denied.

That was it Barbara, thanks for clarifying it. I remember he went to great lengths to prove his 'innocence'.  Why was he banned?  This really pisses me off.

 

 If the concern is people under 17 reading cuss words on here, I've got news for ya, most of those kiddies can swear better then most adults, and do.  If it's such a problem, create a forum for under 17 year olds, but the  majority of people here are adults and a 'G' rated site is no fun.  As far disrespecting mods, come on, we all deal with enough crap in the real world.  Bosses who treat you like crap, kids, spouses, the world in general pushes us around enough to 'conform' who the hell needs it from an artists website.  Someone cusses you out, big whoop, ignore it and move on.  The more you push, the more some people push back.  It's a freakin message board, if you don't like what's being said on a thread, stay away from it and read something else.

 

Where's the explanation of why Mummy and SIA and Basher are gone?

HA! Right. Wasn't that because he was a little miffed they won the Grammy for best alternative album for Zooropa?

 

Don't remember; I do remember his "apology" in the press room after was hilariously insincere...

At wembley Bono was singing unknown caller, and was pointing at the front row of the crowd (same faces for the last 15 shows) and sang and pointed at them "Restart and reboot yourself You're free to go!" which was more than a bit weird.

Mate you missed it, but SIA is also a serial alias user who went way beyond the realm of acceptable behaviour in a response to Mummy.

 

I understand that there's a rule about banned members not being able to return, but add me to the list of peeps who's going to miss Mummy's posts.

 

Fear not though, he will return eventually as someone else......

Maybe I'm kidding myself, but I'm pretty conviced that was a nod to the Gwok!

Bash had been previously given a warning about the excess cussing and told if it happened again he would be suspended for 1 week, at that point he agreed to tone it down.

 

When he found out about gibbo he came on the site and posted several times with an excessive use of profanity in order to make a point (as some others did also but later removed their posts). As he had been previously advised what would happen, he was contacted and told the 1 week suspension would go into effect.

 

Look, we know people drop a curse word here and there, that is generally ok, not a big deal. We always look at the context  of the posts. But excessive and constant of profanity, is not allowed, and the mods have to enforce the rules. Agree or disagree, the rules are clearly stated and everyone has agreed to follow them.
