That List of Reasons

At the risk of boring my reader, here's the list of reason(s) why I was banned:

Sorry ... you are banned from using this forum!

Reason: Why start going through all your messages and defacing them?
Just in case you thought I was vandalising my posts or otherwise defacing them, I was apparently caught in the act of deleting some of my previous posts to the forum. For some of the posts, the option to delete was not available, but they could be modified.

All I did was delete the body of the text and insert a simple full stop. Of course, members of the forum probably have no idea that I've been banned, since I had no right of reply before being summarily locked out. They might be imagining all sorts, for all I know.

Anyway, I have e-mailed the site owners asking for all my posts to be deleted, and I await the response of their response with interest.

It's a brave man that accuses Bill Blunt of making a mountain out of a molehill. (Jasper tells me that I have one or two readers of this blog from Germany. Just in case the euphemism is lost on them, Babelfish tells me this is Bilden eines Berges aus einem Maulwurfshügel heraus).

Have you opened a can of worms? Oh, I do hope so. May the power that is the terrible Goddess go with you!

Bill Blunt said...

That power is one which I am increasingly realising is an awesome one, and I am proud to have her at my side. Sometimes those cans just beg to be opened!

In the eternal word's of Manfred Mann and his inimitable Earth Band - 'they answered my questions with questions...'
You should answer theirs with a swift 'bugger off Noddy'.

Bill Blunt said...

Wise words, from wise songsters, penfold. I will mull on them, you can be assured.
Thanks
Bill

Appraisal request dept

Thankyou.

Bill Blunt said...

Nothing would please me more than to be appraised by the WBC. I only need to know which cistern to leave the bundle of used fivers behind, and we could be away...

radioactive Jam has an interesting can on his site. it's worse than worms...

That mention of Manfred Mann and his wonderful Earth Band leads me to wonder about his famous typo.

The one where he intended to sing about The Mighty Quill - - -

Mr. Bill,

You reckon you can share some of them worms in that can with lil' ol' Miss T? I'm thinkin' about goin' fishin' today but I can't afford no bait down at the tackle shop after I pays for my beef jerky an' beer. You can help a gal out, cantcha? I be forevers grateful.

BFF,
Miss T

Bill Blunt said...

Nice point, Archie!

And RaJ's cans are always full of worms, nursemyra...

Now, Miss Trashahassee, as a Woman Who Tells It Like It Is I think I will have to add you to my list of Favourite Haunts.

It is heartening to see Bill up to his old hellraising tricks again. Back in our youth, I recall Bill being banned from a library, the swimming pool and even his own house.

That was all in one day, to boot.

Ah, sweet memories...

Bill Blunt said...

Thanks for that reminder, Julian. I'd quite forgotten about those earlier principled stands. Let history be my judge.
