Here's why monkeyfunk was banned.
He simply said that Skinner must make money off of the flamewars in GDP, because that's the only explanation for letting the Hillary bashing continue. And for not banning the obvious trouble makers in GDP.

He received no warnings in months, and the only forum he was banned from was the veg forum, not because he posted in there, but because he alerted on "rally the troops" threads.

This isn't surprising...word got to me a couple of months ago that I was on the hit list and would be banned soon because of GDP shit. Was told that mods were planning to ban 3 Obama supporters, so they needed to come up with 3 Hillary supporters, so that it would be "fair." Yet assholes who have done NOTHING but disrupt that forum still post the same shit with impunity.

Oh well, this may be my last post. Anyone who wishes to stay in contact with me can do so through my email: texassippigirl@yahoo.com

See y'all. I'm outta here.

2. Write down my email...share it as necessary.
This thread won't last long, and I bet I'm next on the list.

I'll pass along anything you want me to tell him...but use my email, not PM.

6. After posting this...
I probably don't have a choice.

I was a part of the dialog that ended up in mf being banned. What I said was no better than what he said.

And it's the truth. GDP is a cesspool that has caused many GOOD DUERS to be banned.

Love ya.

7. GDP is a world of 8th graders.
Sadly.

It's a problem that should have been fixed months ago. But people looked away, and then banned good DUers simply because the crowd protested and alerted on them.

The correct opinions are not always the most popular.

12. I know GDP is hilarious, but that is not what I meant.
I meant this: word got to me a couple of months ago that I was on the hit list and would be banned soon because of GDP shit. Was told that mods were planning to ban 3 Obama supporters, so they needed to come up with 3 Hillary supporters, so that it would be "fair."

This seems unbelievable to me. A little, mini DU conspiracy.

10. Well, whether or not it's true...
If it is, it should tell you to be careful, because you were let back in after a ban, and you can be banned again just as easily.

Broke my heart when you were banned.

This breaks my heart, too.
