Apparently Liberty Poet has been banned!

What's going on? He said he got banned for going against banning some user named Celeste, whom I don't recall. Does anyone else know? I feel like we lost one of the best members this site ever had!

Peace.

hmm

I leave for a few days, and I come back to see LL banned? I always miss the best DP drama!

Really though, I don't fully know what happened, nor do I care, but LL doesn't seem like a bad guy...although I don't think I've ever seen him make a post that contained a rational thought. It was always emotional rhetoric, contradicting claims, and bumper sticker slogans with him. "Fight the evil machine, love will win! Here's a song/beer for you!" regardless of what anyone said to him. I tried having a few conversations with him back during his Daily Johnson phase, but they never went anywhere.

I've never understood emotional thinkers (drinkers?) anyway, so I probably just don't 'get' LL.

A signature used to be here!

LL threw a tantrum

He said he didn't want anymore to do with this site. It appears he got his wish.

In my opinion,

This thread is worth a bookmark.

And one to be brought back from time to time.

EDIT: It expresses SO MUCH here. Doesn't it?

A rather public execution.

I'm tired of the drama. I want to talk about real ideas, without being overrun by stuff that's whack, and without having to deal with drama and histrionics.

I'm sorry. I can't be everything to everyone. I've got to look out for myself as well.

The number of times I have banned and let him back I cannot even count.

I remind myself of Lou Pinella, always going to Bobby Ayala to close the game, and inevitably, he'd blow it. But Pinella was loyal, and kept right on going to him.

Irrational. What can I say? I like Tom. I think deep down, he has a good heart. I think he's suffered some fairly severe damage from life, and for that reason alone, he deserves respect. But he cannot exist on that respect alone.

And that is why for me, as much as I believe he is a good person, it is time for me to move on.

There are only so many repetitions that I can go through before I know it is time to move on.

He asked for the duel

Michael, you did the right thing as far as I'm concerned.

Standing up

for respect of the truth, is tough.

It takes a Man Thing with principles. Something America has been brainwashed from.

Thankfully, we still have a few. ;)

And the number is growing.

Uhmm..

I was Liberty Poet up until a short while ago...tis must be pertaining to another Liberty Poet?

Father - Husband - Son - Spirit - Consciousness

I thought of (((((you))))

but I knew they meant ((((((((LL)))))))))

It's times like this I wish I was a poet because profound feelings are hard to translate into word, and I don't write well anyways.

let me try.. ok

See you there

Wow!

I really loved that!!! Great!

It's awful to watch.

A troll system in collapse.

Gardens and honest money get a lot more attention by serious people.

Isn't it funny

how people hate Liberty? Does it even make any sense? People like living like slaves? The blacks didn't seem to like it back then.

Here's the exchange

And now LL too?

Man that sucks. Had some good exchanges with him.

It never pays to have frustration inspire your words.

funny...

I consider myself an alcoholic, and have come to surmise the exact opposite axiom from yours. Understand that I don't consider your statement wrong, but that my personal analysis of the statistics leading me to conclude that "booze always wins" is probably the prime indicator leading me to conclude that I'm an alcoholic. :D

funnier still...

as a double shot ;D

Not sure

But I think he was defending Celeste and upset because she got banned. This may very well have got himself in trouble. I was gone when it happened so I have no right to make a judgement on it at all.

If I disappear from a discussion please forgive me. My 24-7 business requires me to split mid-sentence to serve them. I am not ducking out, I will be back later to catch up.

He crossed the line

Not surprised

Someone is down voting me for the hell of it....awesome!

Now what do I do?

My reception will suffer!

I'm not stalking you, the truth is.

"For the love of god someone help me....."

What a fucking sad statement, and how telling it is.

You should go online and seek out

Your local comedy club. Sometimes a drink and a good laugh is good for ones well being. Plus you may discover that not everything in life is " literal"

Smile buddy, were all the same rock hurrling through space.
Btw, you have my permission to downvote my posts if you want.

Lol
Hope you have a good weekend.

Yeah hah

Noticed that, I voted them back up.

Not sure why someone would troll your comments here.

Sad to see people banned but, you gotta do what you gotta do, even if some are blatant trolls I like to gather information on there purpose/agenda so I never block anyone.

But this IS Michael's site and he can ban anyone he damn well likes, that's how freedom works, people can even run dictatorships if they wish, just don't expect anyone to sign up, at the same time you have no obligation or for that matter right to stay on anyone's private property.

One thing that I don't know, and intrigues me is, why did Celeste get banned?

Lol

Hey who ever you are, let's arm wrestle.....

Basically demand Michael respond, So he did.

Dex it was a good post to bring backup had me remembering the old days of getting pump for the 2012 race.

Cant wait for 2016. Hope we make it.

Q met me at my warehouse

And met me while donating for Japan.

Dex?

Do you have any clue what "The line" is? lol, He is just frustrated like us all, Yo-Yo Tom has such a big heart and is so passionate that he as you know holds the record here. I would let him back in a heartbeat, and so will my Wise friend Michael. After maybe a time out though. lol

If I disappear from a discussion please forgive me. My 24-7 business requires me to split mid-sentence to serve them. I am not ducking out, I will be back later to catch up.

He's done

He's had many opportunities ....

Yup

I bumped an old post from Q which made reference to Celeste. For some reason LL went berserker over Celeste's ban and started provoking Michael.

It was the middle of the 6th inning of the Sox / Tiger game ( which really sucks the Detroit lost) ....Michael pushed the goodbye button and that was it.

Something to keep in mind, Tom has been banned on several ocasions before and doesn't always instal a filter when he's hitting the sauce.
