Barracuda Trader: "Why I am Being Blocked From Commenting"


Last Saturday, I was feeling 'puffed-up".
I had just successfully dazzled my mother-in-law and my wife with a "spectacular" Thanksgiving dinner.
I was maxed-out on my secret stuffing.
And I was just in one of those moods where I felt I was above the law and 'untouchable'.
I could do whatever I want, I thought.
Things were a little slow on the threads I had started, so I decided to SPAM them for the ever sought after bump that would push them to the 'top'.
I was feeling nostalgic so I chose a graphic that read "These are the good old days"
I know it was selfish.
And I know it was annoying to other DP members.
And I if I were the MOD on duty I would have blocked me too.
This was the first time I was blocked in the 5 years 11 months I've been allowed to post on the DP.
So it was embarrassing to be an outlaw.

This is the bump graffiti;

These are the "good old

These are the "good old
These are the "good old

It was stupid and short sighted.

I abused the trust placed in me by Nystrom et al.
And I regret having done that.
P.s. They were smart enough to also track my alias Daddy WarBucks.
When I realized my a.k.a. was effected I knew I was no longer 'untouchable'.
P.s.s. I'm pleasantly surprised that people haven't said, "It's about time they shut you up Barracuda Traitor!"
I wish I could comment...

Just wonderin'

Any chance of fishyculture and Legalize Liberty getting one of those "Get out of jail" cards?

It sure would make a nice ending to 2013 for them!

Try it now

While certain users here can comment but not post, I have never heard of a situation where someone could make a post, but not comment. That would be a first.

Give it a try.

You're no help Nystrom!

If it wasn't for Mark Twain this place would have gone to Hell in a hand basket long ago!

Punish BT not for spam, but for incomplete sentence fragments.

There is no place for poor grammar in the free world.

You are either with the grammar police or you are with the terrorists.

Since Guantanamo Bay is full, I suggest sending BT to DETROIT

I chose not to respond a few days ago

Hoping that perhaps you would fix the glaring error.

But no, the post whose first sentence mentioned "incomplete sentence fragments" still ends with no period. So, I'm calling it out, and it can no longer be edited.

Yes, this is humor. I'm with the grammar police; I'd hate to think what would happen if I admitted to not being with them...

I love you. I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you.

And your "Act of Contrition"...heartfelt, and as sincere as any resident in an orange jumpsuit (LOL!)
** The facts surrounding the "Daddy Warbucks" scenario are intriguing, to say the least.**
And although the OP's you've contributed over the years were quite entertaining and noteworthy....I am a bit shaken to discover, and wonder at:
HOW MANY "sock-puppet accounts" are here at the DP???
NOT a good feeling.
NOT a climate that encourages trust.
Good luck to you in your journey to re-establish trust.
Trust...once betrayed is 10 times harder to rebuild.

I would do this

You know that we all love you and want you to remain here, so, if I were you, I'd seek help from Mark Twain....he has these "Get out of Jail" cards!

I'm sure he'll give you one if you simply ask him!

Dear Daddy Warbucks,

Holbrook mentioned your nom de plume is in serious trouble. I sought the most suitable release form. This card might be accepted once every century or so to settle this matter with civilité. Meilleurs voeux.

You Sir...

Are something else!

Truly a one of a kind and such an asset to the DP!

Thanks for not letting BT down!

I just knew that you'd come through!

You admit to having mutliple accounts...

And your post begging forgiveness for violating the rules on spamming your own threads is front paged?

Who makes those choices?

That's the sort of strange behavior around here that led me to cancel my membership.

You're canceling just because of that???

I Love Barracuca Trader

And MichaelWiseGuy too and where is he?

TwelveOhOne's picture

MichaelWiseGuy was inciting violence in multiple comments

I called him out on it on one of them. Not long after he was banned. Not saying it was me, just saying you can search my comment history for a comment that may have gotten him banned. In fact, here it is: http://www.dailypaul.com/305555#comment-3262242
