I wasn't able to login and figured I was banned*.


*It has happened before (what's really strange is that both sides of debates will ban me...must be something wrong on both sides):
Climate: The Blackboard, What'supwiththat, Realclimate, Open Mind, Climate Audit (probably a few more)
Economics: Greg Mankiw, Brad Delong
Fitness: Lyle Mcdonald
Gaming: Age of Empires, AOL civ boards (old)
Girlfriend-related: Knitting world, embroidery forum (I was showing her how to troll...nothing like starting acrylic versus wool and bottle versus breast debates....they got most mad when I advised them on menstruation and found out I was male...I was just getting my guts up to advise on birthing.. :()
Gymnastics: GGMB, International Gymnast, WWGym, plus a slwe of blogs and youtube channels
Politics: Volokh.com, Swiftboatveterans for truth
Sports: Extremeskins.com

When both sides are mad at you, you know you're close to the truth.

Good to have you back.

So is it a contest to see how many times you can get banned? Doesn't seem all that productive...course, if you weren't here, perhaps I'd be the black sheep of the board, so by all means, stay :wink:

How did you get banned from the AOE and Civ boards? (I've never been on those forums but played both series)

Sort of like when you advise us on squats and deadlifts, then?

OK, that's all I need to hear. Do something like that one more time, you will be gone. We have people here that want to hear advice from people that have walked the walk, then , and maybe then, reluctantly, share their experiences. We don't need a joker that advises on things they have never experienced.

Well Tim, it seems like he is purposely trying to get kicked out of as many different forums as he can. I'd say oblige him with one more.

I don't think you exactly get me right, Tim, but it's probably a fine point. Do what you need to do. Too bad...have enjoyed asking questions about details.

Or more likely he isn't involved in the argument at all. He's instead, just being a royal pain in everyone's ass.
