    Considering that Sparky has apparently been warned about his politically charged signature before, and has now put some personal attacks in his current signature - I think that this is behavior that is not indicative of someone that is considered a "Site Leader". Even the Charles Manson quotes were a bit out of line for someone who is representing himself as a leader of this forum. (IMHO)

    What say you?

    His current signature is:

    ""I'm right and you can't win ever ever ever, la-la-la-la-la." -- Deep thoughts from arceeguy, kerf, and vtec."

    This can be seen throughout the forum, not just in the CC - so, once again he is letting his venom spill out of the CC.

    So what exactly does it take to be a MBc Site Leader? I've joked about this before, but maybe there's a grain of truth.......

    Do you honestly believe that you're a saint, RC? I try my dammdest to keep things civil and neutral between the three jokers in my sig. You, in particular, have to follow me wherever I go and bring up sh!t that is NEVER relevant to the topic at hand (communist, socialist, commune, comrade, spanky, sparky's mother, sparky's job, sparky's tax evasion, leftist media, Chomsky homp, sparky's education, youN00B, etc.). You do not know me, I do not know you, and none of your recurring memes make a sh!t when it comes to anything we choose to discuss here, yet how many times do you bring them up? No joke... you follow me EVERYWHERE and have to make some sniveling, hateful comment behind nearly every comment of mine.

    SimpleSimon was right in that someday you'll grow up, get over yourself, & eventually regret your ****-poor attitude. I wish that day were today, but I could honestly care less. Slinging mud isn't going to change my mind about anything, and I could only hope that it wouldn't change the mind of anybody else either. I have never ever slung mud at you first. Like Mr. Crazy/Intelligent Manson has said before... I'm just a mirror, man!! I'm a reflection of yourself. You bring up my mom, and I bring up your wife. What's the difference? You're a terrorist, and I'm a counter-terrorist!!

    As for the other two guys, vtec has become a little more rational with his usage of the term idiot. I love to be called an uneducated idiot on seldom occasions, where I'm learning something that I was confused/mistaken about before... but multiple times in EVERY sentence is extremely counter-productive.

    And kerf's ignorance (or is it arrogance?) isn't nearly as much of a problem... but he brought it upon himself with his comment to ignore the Reagan video, which truly reflects the thought process between the three of you. All three of you bash people like that's your JOB, ignore virtually ALL sources of news media, dodge ALL intelligent questions asked of you, and NEVER think you're wrong or admit defeat. You discourage intellectual conversations whenever possible, only to be happy with simple-minded & concise quips. It's pathetic.

    Those are great tactics at ignoring the truth and possibly even winning debates or being a sub-par comedian... but all three of you are far from being honest, rational, & kind-hearted.

    If you were kind to begin with, my sig never would have changed from our mirror mastermind, "Chuckles" Manson. Treat me with respect, and I'll return the favor. Spit on me, and I'll cut out your f@#kin' tongue. If you want me to be honorable toward you or dishonorable toward you... think about what it is you're saying first. :cool2:

    Talk a little less trash, and then I won't have to take one, extra-large dump on you. Comprendes?

    It'd be interesting to see how many intelligent and on-topic comments in a row you're capable of, RC. Or is that an impossibility for you? "Generally, your ability to interact with people will be difficult, and your greatest achievements will be realized by directing your efforts toward impersonal activities." Be neutral, RC! Quit focusing solely on me, and we just might be able to get along.

    I refuse to vote in this poll, because I will always be myself as long as I'm alive. I would never change who I am to become more of a hypocritical authoritarian or some other character that I am not. I'm just another guy, man.

    the Charles Manson thing is just way over the line
    and as mentioned it carries over onto the MB pages -- BAD BAD THING TO BE SHARING
    say what you want spankyourself
    but if my young grandkids picked up on some of your sickness
    on a family MB site

    I would want to kick your butt with one big shoe

    why don't you keep your perversions to the cc ??

    Site Leader ?? not untill spankthatTHING cleans up his act a little

    I have a recommendation, MYSELF included, why don't we continue to disagree on the issues but set personal comments aside. Nothing good can come of this. We've all done it, we can all stop it.

    Very civil spanky!

    More Chuckles Manson quotes, AWESOME!

    Also - months before the CC was created, YOU were the one calling ME things like "foolio" and using profanity. I was the one holding back. Now that we have the CC, which is a "free for all" forum, I can say whatever I want without worry of getting warnings. What's the matter, you can dish it out but can't take it?

    Seems to me that YOU are the one that is using his signature as a billboard to spew personal attacks and political views.

    Awwwwwwww. poor sparky............

    Hahahahaaaaaaa! :rofl: Yes SIR Mr. Site Leader SIR!!!!!!

    Simple - stop posting the ridiculous cr@p you do, and I'll stop calling you out.

    I know you think I'm focusing solely on you, but get over yourself. You post threads about Charles Manson, Noam Chomsky, Horoscopes, etc. and so on, and you expect to be taken seriously? Please.

    This is what the CC is all about. now I like Saprky for his off-colored topics, and quite enjoy the reaction he seems to "spark" from you Arcee. Probably half of the threads in the CC have no replies from me, either because I don't care about the subject or it's just plain over-my-head (I admit). So the next time you feel like Sparky is making an a$$ out of himself by posting a thread that is of no intrest to you, DON'T POST. Start another thread that suits your taste.

    Now, as for the Manson signature. They are visible to all outside of the CC and on every post that you have made within this forum. they should be kept to a simple respectable funny quip or reference to MBing. Leave the political, opinionated, self-degrading sh!t on some other forum. I was in no way offended by Sparky's Manson quotes but if it bothered you Arcee or MM, why not ask him politely to pick a different quote. Everyone here is capable of some sort of reasoning. So instead of talking sh!t, explain perhaps in a private message that his sig may be offensive to someone else. I am sure he would have changed it soon thereafter.

    Now Sparky, your turn. I do think that your current signature is quite rude. You shouldn't take personal offense to the fact that some of the members here seem to atttack every comment you have and express this for all to see. We know how you feel. I had to step away for a few weeks because I was p/o'd at some comments that were made here. But I am back, steering away from sensitive topics that aggravate me when someone else seems too closed-minded to understand.

    Sparky - Site Leader. Sure. We need every side of the spectrum to become a complete family of MBers. Not trashing anyone (cause I like his attitude), but look at SimpleSimon. Talk about some controversial views....

    I say we make Arceeguy a Site leader as well. I feel he deserves a spot on the roster. Maybe this will quell some of the "Who deserves to be a Leader" dispute.

    Because it is the Combustion Chamber, If I feel Sparky is making an @ss out of himself, I will surely point it out!

    We all made a deal when this forum was created, and that was to keep the slapstick stuff inside the CC. Sparky has not done this. He's had Bush hating lies, Manson quotes and now personal attacks in his signature.

    Certainly not!

    I totally admit that my behavior should disqualify me for ever getting that title. And that is my whole point. As a "MBc Site Leader", Sparky should be an ambassador of sorts. Someone who greets new members and answers a lot of technical questions. A quick search reveals that Sparky doesn't seem to provide technical information for fellow MB'ers and just posts in the White Zone and CC. Now while I do post a lot in the CC, I also provide technical information on two strokes because I work with that type of engine a lot. Sparky is here for arguing. And while that's fine too, he should stop whining if things get too hot in the kitchen. The terroristic threats are amusing though.... "Spit on me, and I'll cut out your f@#kin' tongue." LOL

    It's not about who deserves that title, but what conduct is becoming of a member who has gotten the title. So when a "MBc site leader" calling people "foolio", and posting his political views and personal attacks in his signature, it looks bad for the site in general. (some of this was before the CC was spawned)
  9. scokes

    scokes Member

    Agreed as stated in my above reply.

    As for the "title" I never payed that much attention to it anyways. I never went looking at someones title to decide who I shuld ask when I was having problems. There are noobs in this forum that have helped me when needed.

    So, to keep up with my "who gives a rats-a$$ attitude" .....

    In my announcers voice. "ding, ding, ding...Round #483___Fight."

    This is all quite amusing I must admit.

    I enjoy my conversations w/spanky... he is off the wall but freedom is what makes America. I think the Manson **** is over the line. Spanky you do need to watch your sig... this is a family site, no way around that. As far as the personal insults... that is a part of life, if you can dish it out you better expect it back (both ways).

    In all truth I dont dissagree with most of spanky's politics, although I am socially much more conservative than he is. He just has his facts twisted, and his logic is wrong. I think its amazing how we view the same things so differently.

    I dont care if he is a site leader as long as out of the CC he can act mature and appropriately w/out disturbing manson quote sigs, it really is a sad cry for attention, spanky you shouldn't do desperate things like that.
  11. arceeguy

    arceeguy Active Member

    Yes it is! I really do enjoy the CC.

    I forget when exactly Sparky got the new title, but a lot of people noticed, and took the message that the site administrators were endorsing his behavior. If you look at This thread, at about post #18 when sparky joined in, you'll see that he personally attacked me and accused me of being a pedophile. This was back before the CC existed. Sparky may claim that "I have never ever slung mud at you first" but we all know that Sparky's claims are often lies, and that thread is just one example.

    The title "MBc Site Leader" was something that we tried to get going but everyone slowly lost interest. I went ahead and removed the custom title from everyone.

    very wise solution...
  14. sparky

    sparky Active Member

    Apparently you're the one who can't take it, by the looks of this thread. I've been putting up with your sh!t for far too long. If you think that me calling you foolio is the first incident between us, I'll look up some prior history to see who really started attacking who first. I have NO PROBLEM with moderate "dishings", but when it's expected that you'll be right behind me mentioning one of the same played out memes I listed above... why would you expect things to be civil? I post completely random sh!t, then you bring up the same played out sh!t you did in the post right before that one!! It's no surprise what you do. If you want to post in my Chomsky thread... why not post about Chomsky? If you want to discuss what you believe is evidence against Manson.... why not post about that? Why not post something for or against Manson's overall message if you want to post in that thread? That's what I'd like to know. Or why not start a new thread that you'd like to get others thinking about? Thinking! Oh, it hurts!

    How about you just START posting something we've never seen before. You haven't been able to "call me out" on anything for a long time, so you revert to some your smear tactics, because you can't possibly attack what it is I'm saying. Do you honestly believe that you don't attack my character in the VAST MAJORITY of your posts? I have no doubt in my mind that I could find HUNDREDS of your posts where you attack someone's character. Making a humorous quip every couple weeks or so would be moderate, therefore reasonable. But when your posts turn into nothing but quips, it gets extremely stale and LAME! Just try discussing the topic without bringing up things like "typical lib", "libtard", etc. That's be a good start to an intelligent conversation if you truly want to have those.

    Are you serious? Play along or don't. It's that simple. Don't like where my threads are going, why don't you post something? Give us something fun and interesting to think about or revert to the "play along or don't" suggestion.

    Funny how you only complain when you're being attacked... not when I have Manson quotes that are wise or on MB topic..

    I don't have much time to post elsewhere at the moment. You keep posting where you'd like, and I'll keep posting where I'd like. There'd be no CC without me.

    Your welcome!

    You are a *troll*, tho. You would be teaching us something of value if you weren't. Instead, you choose to keep things as cyclical as possible so that we'll never walk down any new path.

    Which of my claims are lies? And do you honestly feel like that post was the beginning of our feud?
  15. arceeguy

    arceeguy Active Member

    Well Sparky, it certainly doesn't seem like you want to let go of the name calling. While that post wasn't the beginning of any feud, it did illustrate that you do exactly what you accuse others of, and you outright lied when you said you "NEVER EVER sling mud first".

    The other guys can have their way with you because I'm pretty much done. I've explained this before, but you just don't understand that whatever political views you have are automatically "null and void" in my eyes because you are a self proclaimed tax evader and therefore have absolutely no right to say anything on taxes or government policy. You might as well be an illegal alien.
  16. sparky

    sparky Active Member

    I don't ever sling mud first. You've never see me sling mud at somebody who was neutral and willing to consider viewpoints and ideas that they'd never considered before... EVER! The definition of troll is "to cause to move round and round". You *are* a troll, and I can't help that. History is proof of this; simply look thru the CC and check out your own posts. Perhaps I post things that you don't agree with, or like, even, but what I do is not "trollish". I don't follow you around, and I don't constantly berate you for the sake of putting a :jester: at the end of my comments.

    Name calling is GREAT, so long as it's based on reality. You CANNOT use a term like fascism to describe somebody who is NOT stifling the people. Someone who is putting checks on big business in order to help the general public cannot possibly be called a fascist. Plain and simple. Does calling our Prez "Fascist Obama" ever help the meaning and intent of your message? I've never seen it happen.

    Even calling Obama a socialist because of his health care plan is pretty iffy, IMO. It's certainly not the one-party pay all plan that a communist would like... and it still leaves people free to go without health care, so, for that reason, I'm not a huge proponent of Obama's plan to begin with... tho it *is* better than what we are seeing right now. Is it socialism to provide health insurance companies with subsidies? Or is that fascism? More importantly, does it even matter what you call it?? It's certainly not the free market, which is something that classic liberals and classic conservatives both support.

    Names that are not founded in reality and have no meaning to the topic at hand should be shunned. If you detract from analysis... you are stifling the subject of conversation. If you're not stifling the subject... you're probly getting into accurate detail, where innacurate names and short quips don't matter.

    If anybody would like to begin an intention of truly detailed analysis... I'm the first to jump on board, and I am sorry for comments in the past. I am not Jesus Christ, so I figured helping you look at yourself in the mirror every once in awhile would help you take a step back... but I was wrong. As long as meaningful, intelligent, & civil conversations remain... you will NEVER see me step out of line. That is a promise.

    Sparky - did you click on the link to the thread I posted? It sure looks like you sucker punched me (slung mud first) AND were trolling for trouble because you weren't even part of the discussion. You accused me of being an internet predator and pedophile! Holy carp. Your denial of the truth is worse than Obama!

    Yup - pretty much follow that rule. :D

    That statement is true. You've never been neutral, so the statement is based on reality and is, therefore, fact.

    I consider Obama a Fascist, I believe he intends to rule through thug tactics. You don't have to agree but I'm entitled to my opinion just like you're entitled to yours. We'll have to agree to disagree and that's ok, we don't need to hate each other just because of a political difference.
  20. sparky

    sparky Active Member

    Fascist is not the correct terminology to use, tho. How is he stifling the people?

    There are so many terms that would be VASTLY MORE ACCURATE, so why wouldn't you choose them over "fascist"?
