The other site I'm on is combat Vietnam Vets. It's depressing in that of those of us that are still left we've either already battled some AO disease or are in the process or waiting for our turn. We share pictures of us then and now....talk about depressing. The general thinking is to avoid the VA with any AO condition unless you're looking to be cremated ricky ticky. Life offers me all the drama I care to deal with. I don't need no stinken white blaze.

Dang Sarge, what did you do, pull a Gunnery Sergeant Hartman? They even removed you from the duty roster.

I know you were pointing out the latest selective enforcement policy, beating a dead horse perhaps but I didn't see where you crossed a line.

My guess is the tolerant, coexistant, celebrate diversity crowd found you guilty of not believing in their intolerant, conformant, group think.

But I'm sure they'll pro-rate and refund your donating member fees.

Well;

I actually got banned for something I said on the HF Facebook page (yah, there's one of those too).

Somebody started a thread there when they noticed that the HF TOS included a statement to the effect that by registering there, HF owns the Copyright on everything you post. It got kinda long and a bunch of folks joined in explaining copyright law and recounting instances of bad things that have happened over there in the past. Even Fronkey got involved. I was there in the mix.

The Troll comes on and says something to the effect that the reality is that him owning the copyright on everything you post actually protects you from people stealing your ideas.

I'll just let that one sit for a few seconds.

So, I asked: "If such is the case, would you go to bat for people who have had their ideas stolen? Because things that have happened in the past would indicate that isn't going to happen. When I can't control my own words, I don't feel very protected. The only protection I need is US Copyright Law.

It wasn't long after that----------

Yah, well. There was also the complaint I made about him removing signatures (not mine) from people who put Biblical quotes in them. They had been allowed since forever, but he started deleting them one night. When it was mentioned that this was a new practice, he revised the TOS to include Biblical quotes in signatures as being a "discussion" of religion, then tried to back date the change to make it look like he'd done it before he started deleting sigs.

It was kind of the last straw for me. By the time he banned me, I'd already decided I was done with the whole thing. The only thing that hurt a bit was the hits I was getting on my YouTube channel from that place. Its going to mean that by the end of the year, I will have made $12.43 instead of $12.57----

Sargevining
2015-08-15, 13:41
And, yah. The whole intellectual property thing bugs me. I know I ain't no John Stienbeck, but some folks tell me I write OK. There's a post over there in the Pay for Play section that I wrote on a hammock pack design I'd had Chris Zimmer make for me that's got over 15,000 hits. When I found out that I couldn't edit the post after three days it hit me that what I was doing was paying him for the privelege of giving him content that other people pay him to see, AND I was paying him for the privelege of reading my own stuff. Its probably not seeing as many hits now that I've removed all of the pics that are hosted on my Photobucket account----

Its actually kind of brilliant, in a skeevy kind of way. Sites like that exist because people want to read the content. All of the content is provided by the members, and he doesn't pay for the content, and some of them pay him to see the "non-hammock" related content---which they provide. The folks that run the site are all volunteers, so he doesn't pay them. The customers provide the content, which he owns once they provide it and operating costs are covered by "donations". If the "donations" total more than the cost, he puts that money in his pocket, along with the advertising revenue he gets from banner adds, which is based on the number of members he has---who provide the content that attracts more customers.

I'm actually not being mean to gays. It's just hard for older people...like Lugnut... to keep up with all the gay expressions. Since this country has gone light in the loafers those people of the rainbow have introduced new terms that some folks aren't hip to. For example I heard someone say that our POTUS is gay. Who would have thought. He may be a pinko but I wouldn't have thought he was gay. I can't actually be for or against any of them since they all speak in metaphors and centipedes. I just smile and say they are all the bees knees....even though they really aren't.

Yah. SilvrSurfr has been running with a "Christians are stupid" type of sig for a while now. Crickets from the management.That is one of the guys I would ban. His knowledge is about internet deep but he is self delusional about his expertise in many things hammock and camping related. As such he can get pretty dang abusive to others with whom he doesn't agree with and offers little that others do not already say. To me he is like some of the poison pill users of past on WhiteBlaze and here. On WB they could show their ass for a while as I built a case about getting rid of them - to me that was a free speech site that I didn't really own, just supervised for the inmates. But when dick holes like Minnesota Smith started posting here I just banned him outright as he had absolutely no redeeming value to add to the conversation. He sent me a very condescending e-mail when he realized this expressing his disapproval with my lack of understand of how smart he was. :bird:

He posts but no one can see his posts but him. He has no idea he's been banned and no one knows who he is. Spooky.That actually happened at WhiteBlaze with WhitefootHP. He was banned and would come back with new fake names and had no clue that the cookie the website creates also tagged his machine as him. Eventually he got smart to this and started using IP spoofing software to get back in which when you think about it is pretty pathetic to think he so didn't get it that he thought he was some hacker trying to fight the power. His very unique quirks on posting always revealed him in about 1 to 2 posts, that and when you tracked his IP it tunneled right into one of those IP spoofing sites LOL. So we took his most recent undercover name and put him in this status. Only the administrators could see his posts and occasionally to keep him unaware I would respond to a thread in a way he would assume I was responding to him but I never quoted him or actually acknowledged him. To others it would appear that I was just a part of the discussion. I cannot accurately remember how long it took him to finally catch on, but it seems like it was pretty long - about 6 months to a year. Then I got an e-mail from the user (Apple or something like that) asking why when he didn't log into the site he couldn't see his own posts. I pretty much told him straight up: Whitefoot, we have known it was you all along and you have some pretty big balls to think we were so stupid and you were so smart we wouldn't catch on. I just want you to know you have been that way since about the second post under that ID and it has gone on this long without you ever knowing.

I really enjoy his quotes mostly because they show his true genius and, although he would not agree with the world view, I find that many support my endorsement the total depravity of mankind (T.U.L.I.P.). We obviously come at it from radically different perspectives but hey in the arena of ideas we can enjoy the exchange...unless you are doing so at HF.

The point is that if the admin types there want to play word games with sig lines they should expect to have their feet held to the fire on both sides of the issue. Your sig was simply the first con side of the issue I saw...you certainly have the right, which I very much support, to quote any wrong headed idea you endorse. :aetsch:

P.S.
Nothing personal Uke...


so why did you report it? I feel pretty sure you weren't offended and did it for spite. There is no mention of god or buddha or muhammad or odin in it, which religion am I talking about? It could be about Jim Jones and his whacked out religion.

If the mods are going to nuke sigs that express Christian views then to be consistent they need to pole axe all sides of the issue. Matters not if the censorship is Christian or Buddhist the rule that applies to one religion applies to all, it also applies to sigs like yours. Yours was the first sig I saw that could be used to poke the mods for this silly censorship, could have been anybody. If this bothers you perhaps you will see that the admin of HF is who who modified the rules and began nuking Christian sigs...maybe direct your protest there. Unless you are saying you are OK with Christians only being muzzled and all other views (like yours) being allowed with no ability to respond by us...that your view?

"Religion" was the qualifier in Samuel's quote, it made no distinction and so was intended to be understood in the broadest sense. If you meant Jim Jones perhaps you could have clarified your position rather than using Twain's view and quote alone.

Well, frack you.

We should all endorse his public speaking skills. There was a poem (Robert Service?) about the Klondike gold rush he modified to fit the AT and he used to read it at every opportunity. He called his last thru-hike disaster attempt a success after he was filmed reading it at the AT HQ.

I don't know if the AT HQ people actually pressed the "Record" button or not.

For some folks that would be a big win. On the other hand I thru hiked with a guy that didn't carry any tp to save pack weight. He relied on leaves from GA to ME. No shit.

We had a guy living in a camp trailer that save his poo and then brought it to the dump, The guys caught him and apparently theirs some kind of law or something against doing that. There's some things that I would assume wouldn't need a law. The fact that they needed a law to prevent folks from dumping poo in the dump and a law against eating human flesh gives me an icky feeling.
