    Can verify. I read that thread pre-move. It was getting harsh and so the person posted alluding to the environment feeling like they were in the Snippiness thread. Later, it was moved to Snippiness along with the others, and hilarity ensued.

    Assuming you're talking about my post, that's exactly what happened. I was trying to point out to the folks who had been posting earlier that they were out of line.

    Out of curiosity, what was the original thread? Just wondering what inflamed passions so much...

    I'm surprised this thread exists. In some other forums I visit, they don't allow talking about banned members. Thumbs up to TMC.

    <-- not next, I hope.

    Unfortunately, the only way to get your post into snippiness is to be a dick...

    This ban was a long time coming.
    The saddest thing is to see some happy, innocent, excited new member getting cold water poured on them.
    Aside from being plain mean, it drives away new forum members, thus impoverishing the community.

    I know... buttershrimp used to be a idealistic and hopeful and now he’s peeled shrimp offering “favors” in a dark alley for firmware updates and day old sour tartar sauce

    No. He just changed his Personal Details Custom Title to "Banned".

    OK, how'd you do that?

    BTW, there should be a "Banned" badge... members can try to collect as many as possable.

    I used to have something about autopilot != Autonomous there.

    On the top right click on your icon, click on "Personal Details" and change your "Custom Title:"

    Some of the overly exuberant but naive newbies would be well served with a mild reality check
