I was all ready to let you back in but you're being a bit of an ass. You're obviously not the only one around here who loves talking about Apple products but most people manage to do that without being a "cock".
I need more time to decide...
PS Don't think because you have a dynamic IP that we couldn't and wouldn't ban you.
This is exactly the kind of crap I'm talking about. So you're "ready to let me back" (I love how obsessed with your cyber authority you are), but I'm being a "bit of an ass" so now you're having second thoughts. So if I was being a bit less of an ass, let's say, only a 17% ass, then I would be let back, but I'm currently being a 27% ass, and that's way too much. I'll go to ass rehab and get my level down to the clearly acceptable 10%, and then I just know you'll let me back.
Secondly, my issue with my banning is just how gloriously arbitrary it was. What exactly did you ban me for? Spamming? No. Advertising? No. Threatening? No. Trolling? No. You didn't like that I posted your PM? Well, Jambo, I'm sorry. I really am. I could not feel worse for posting your PM that contained such sensitive information such as you warning me to behave in the manner you would like. I promise to never, ever, ever even think of posting a PM again, and if I do, I'll send myself into exile. On second thought, I'll post it, but I'll only do it because I can see how much you enjoy flexing your mod-muscle, so it'll be my gift to you.
Jokes aside, why don't we do this (I'm sure you're at least partially reasonable): you reinstate my account, and if I do anything you don't like, ban me again! It's not like it costs you money, or takes more than 20 seconds. Truthfully, this whole thing has been rather annoying, so it's unlikely I'll post anything even vaguely controversial for a while. I'd really just like to go back to talking about the computers I love (I'll keep the "cock" behavior to a minimum), and get past all this laughable posturing. Sound good?
