It has been sparked by a certain individual of recent avatar fame who's name will not be mentioned.

Hi, I'm a new guy. Yep, I have never ever been here before. No I am not related to a wildly hansome Mexican bandit.

I ate three habaneros in a row once... and I also experienced the associated fire sensations. Just not on my fingers. :)

What am I missing? All of your previous posts are now listed under your new user name. Including those that mentioned you-know-who.

If it's anonymity you sought - try again.

We may know who he is, but a new visitor to the site wouldn't so it is anonymity from outsiders....

yes, but these names are not our names, so there is a level of anonymity because it's not like isn't first initial, last name.

:p

exactly. a google search Chet wont find the real me. Also, as time permits Im going to go through old posts and clean 'em up.

All threads relating to the [banned user] will get the same treatment at that persons request.

OK, so I was sitting here thinking "damn, we have a lot of new people all of a sudden". Where have I been??? So who wants to PM me and explain what the hell is going on????

......(slinking away) I'm going to keep quiet for awhile, since apparently I'm a couple cans short of a six pack today....

Edit to say that I couldn't figure out how to spell quiet for about ten minutes.

Ditto. What is going on? I'm going to need a cheat sheet to figure out who everyone is now.

I'll out myself, I'm Tex, or Ashley, or TexasPlanner.. and I changed it because I'm not in Texas.. and Habanero comes from a funny thing one of Jame's friends said wen he met me.. so that's what I really wanted.

I think if you are a regular you'll recognize us from the avatar-

see my monkey!?

I'm out.
I don't get a word.
Who is you-know-who, and why was my request about this removed from the page?
this guy must be more dangerous than saddam if he's so much censored here.

The moderators were trying to clean up the damage from a recent storm of sorts, resulting from the identification of a former user who caused some trouble here.

Let's get back to normal. Thread closed.
