    I thought the same thing this morning when I logged on.
    Did I miss something that happened over the weekend?

    Gary p**s of someone 'real' bad lately?
    More than usual?

    Ok..This is what I know.. Someone posted a picture of the urinal that they were going to install in their bathroom. (It was in the "show pictures of your house thread) Gary responded by posting a picture of his urinal... Then he posted a follow-up picture of his urinal with a picture of one of the other members as a target. I guess it was Gary's arch enemy. (Gary sure is a pisser isn’t he?)

    Some people didn’t think it was funny and they thought that he went too far and complained to the moderator/admin.
    This morning I read in another post that he was banned, but I don't know if he just got pissed off and took his ball and went home.

    Either way, I hope its temporary. I did enjoy reading his smart ass comments.

    That's democracy for you. A couple of people that contribute virtually NOTHING to the forum complain enough and it results in one of the more valuable posters taking a walk. regardless of whether or not you think Gary is harsh or brash, I would rather have him giving advice than the couple of people that complained loud enough that they were being picked on for not knowing what they are talking about.

    Maybe we should start a survey.. "Who wants Gary back?" How do we do that?

    There are many members here who post inaccurate and sometimes dangerous suggestions in their posts. Other members (even Gary) will often point out the error of their suggestion and provide a more accurate, pertinent, and 'real life experience' suggestion. When these original posters insist on their BS, I think it's perfectly fine to use humor to point out their offenses, even if it is at their expense..... they insisted after all. Gary provided a lot of very valuable information to this site. I have 36 years of cruising in my wake and I learned from his posts on a regular basis. In addition to the valuable information, Gary provided much entertainment..... and, frankly, that is about the extent of the content that was valuable to me here.

    Gary is an experienced boater, a witty individual, and he wasn't afraid to call anyone out when they posted something stupid. That's offensive? You can point out that correcting the information is a different story than personal attacks, but so what? The only members who attracted Gary's cross hairs were those that insisted on posting BS information or posing as if they knew something that was obvious to anyone with experience that they did not. If those people get their feeling hurt..... good riddance. When admin and other members chase someone like Gary away because Kearney got his feeling hurt...... that's a tragedy for CSR.

    Before everyone starts over reacting, we should let it be explained why etc... none of us here have the facts, just putting 2 and 2 together.

    He's not banned, in fact nothing happened to him. He posted a pic of another member's pic in a urinal so he was given infraction points. Infraction points are in the forum rules. Since Gary is a trend setter he is the first person to actual receive infraction points. (If anybody feels putting the picture of another member in a urinal is not a problem please let me know). It looks like the infraction system was not fully set up as I have never had to use it, so was Gary not able to post? I have no idea, he sent me a PM last night and complained about another forum user so I figured it was business as usual for him. I'll dig into the system a little more to see if some permissions are blocked or something. FWIW, I'm Gary's biggest fan so he'll have to do a lot to get banned around here :grin:

    I felt it was necessary to "turn on" this infraction system as we (me and the mods) are consistently insulted for trying to keep the peace around here. The new infraction system is a passive thing that assigns points when somebody does something they shouldn't, which is pretty tough to do around here. So during the process of cleaning up after a member points are assigned. They do expire after 10 days. If a member as ridiculous enough to get to 30 points they lose privileges.

    Thanks for the clarification...

    If he is blocked, maybe you should leave him that way so he can work on new material :thumbsup:

    Jim for what it is worth I don't think I would be that upset if someone post a picture of me in a urinal After all we are all adults here and we all tend to have alittle fun at times. Just my 2 cents
