I'm not in the business of forcing people's minds. But what I do wish to impress upon the people voting on this thread is that this isn't an opportunity to vote for something else. It's real simple...a question of right and wrong...and Gthomas's actions held to accountability.
If you hate me. Please vote early and often in the "Do you hate Smackie?" poll. But, for the sake of your own credibility, do not be the guy who bitches at liberals and Democrats, the French and the Germans alike when they include tangential opinion to a matter of right and wrong...then go ahead and do it yourselves.
It's really simple folks. Gthomas has fucked up...like it was his job and prolifically. He brings absolutely nothing to the table. Your vote "No" here is a vote in favor of Gthomas's actions. It's not a vote about his $50. It's not a vote about how you feel there is a Illuminati minority running the show here. It's your chance to decide right and wrong and to clean this place up. Your vote is your word and your character all rolled up into to one. Don't employ it like a fag.

Smackie, I agree with that.
My problem is: Some of you want to cram your likes/dislikes down our throat. I believe we are all capable of making a decision.....fucked up or not. You want everyone to hear your opinions, but not the other way around. Why should I vote against someone that I haven't noticed anything they posted, and don't care what they post. Granted, that may not be a reason to vote for them either, like you said: abstaining may be the best choice in that case. I guess I have a problem with being told what I need to do, what I should or shouldn't do.....don't most of us here feel the same ? Now, on to the STFU and vote theory
So if I tell you NOT to send me $10,000 enough times, does that mean that I should expect 10 grrrrr at my door in a week?
I'm glad I took the time to log in before I left work today. I haven't been active on the forum much lately, but it is a divine pleasure being able to click the "yes" button and hit submit on a poll to ban Radio.
Holy Christ! If for no other reason than to get his mind-numbing incomprehensible, in-decipherable dialect and attempts at logic out of this forum!
I have no idea what he's done lately to Smackie or Nohs or anybody else and frankly, I couldn't care less. I've had his stupid ass on "ignore" since last November (I think it was) when he arrived on the alley spewing his idiotic ramblings about being a cop-killa. . .whoops! I mean almost being a cop-killa if it hadn't been for the lord god almighty stepping in to stop him.
I'm not a member of the 4B or Tejas' crews and unfortunatly, have only met or talked to a couple of the very many excellent people on this forum. So believe me when I say that my "goodbye radio" vote is based upon the way I feel about that jackass and has nothing to do with any group mentality.
You have chosen an odd intellectual partner in this struggle. It is obvious that you enjoy your VA battle, but feigning some "brotherly" loyalty to Gthomas is rather indistinctive of you.
It's mostly out of principle.
GThomas passed some of my stories as his, big whoop-dee-doo.
That does not matter one bit in my mind.
All I've seen are exagerations or lies to make him seem more evil than he is.
Once these lies become propagated and reformulated by the gang, it's hard for outsiders to tell what's going on.
GThomas is alone trying to defend his name while a pack of rabid dogs are disseminating innuendos and accusations of GThomas's sanity and character, throughout the board. And now they prevented him from being able to make his case by disabling his posting privs.
This is all to one-sided, and frankly totally unfair.
That reminds me of the crap I've had to put up and I'll help anyone who is unfairly singled out and lapidated.
What he says on the board is one thing, but what he says in IM's, Emails, and private messages is another. If hes sending harassing messages or even empty death threats to board members via private methods he should be gone.
A lot of us are basing our opinion of him based on what we see on the boards itself, and not what may be going on behind the scenes.
So of course my next question is, has gthomas been harassing members privately, or is the worst of this guy what we see in his ramblings that he posts on this board?
According to the VA Constitution, Banning polls stop at 100 votes. With 67 votes in favor of his banning, it is now a mathematical impossiblility for GThomas NOT to be banned. This banning has therefore run its course and GThomas is banned from Viperalley.
Just to clarify - since I did this at the last minute on my way out of town and unlikely said anything to anyone; I did finally make it over to pick up the Western Union. As I have just gotten back and missed all the fireworks, I will gladly give gthomas his money back as I havent even been to the bank yet (I can PayPal him).
