What happened to BillG?
« on: March 11, 2004, 01:31:26 am »

I have not been on this board for a few days. It now says "Guest" under Bill's name. What happened? Did he quit the FSP? Get kicked out? What?

Bill has this habit of turning every conversation into a Geo-lib one. So, we created the Geo-Lib “commons” specifically to give those concerned with Geo-Lib issues a venue and to keep other threads from being hijacked.

Bill was told to discuss Geo-Libertarianism as much as he wants, only keep it in the Geo-Lib area. He continued to hijack threads and he kept receiving warnings.

Yesterday, the warnings ran out.

YES!

   That makes the FSP a bit more attractive in my book.

Does that mean we can archive "the Commons" and start a new board on money issues?

FINALLY people taking action.

I agree, archive The Commons and lets start some useful discussions. I've got a lot more productive things to do than trying to contain socialist propaganda.

Is there a way to allow him access to only this topic?  There should be since we have members only threads so clearly we can exclude some people from some threads.

P.S. Alternative money forms would be interested.  I say we should trade securities and not gold.

He had a long standing (before I joined, I think) habit of bringing up his geolibertarian views on every subject that popped up. Someone would be discussing a topic, and he would hijack it, some were then closed as off topic. Do a search for threads with billg in them that are outside the commons for examples. I am not sure how many threads or posts were deleted though.

I've been warned before to stop doing something or I would be banned.  I stopped immediately and permanently.

That was many months ago.

As long as people are given sufficient warning of this private board's policies, then it is their own fault if they are banned.   :-\

BillG may have been doing what he thought was important and though I wouldn't have banned him myself, it seemed a valid option.

There was even a forum created specifically regarding this and still other threads would get hijacked about creating land taxation and get moved to "The Commons".
