Andy:

Here is his message to me.


" Leolav:

It has come to my attention that you are advertising another website (Tractorforum.com) in the lawn and garden tractor forum, a direct violation of the rules of our forum. Several other members have been suspended for advertising websites other than Gardenweb in the forums. Please discontinue this practice or we will be forced to cancel your account and ban your IP address. This is your first warning. There will be no second warning!"

What an a-hole! By the way, I left another message regarding the Tractorforum.com website on the forum today. If he bans me, so be it. I have been loyal since 98 and for them to pull this is total BS. I can readily change my IP and email address very easily. I also can create email addresses easily as well. He does not want to start a war with me over this. So much for free speech!



:cool:

Agreed, but I have done nothing to piss him off. I simply state that this format is much better than his format. Andy has done a great job tweaking the site to where it is today. Spike hasn't done Jack since I have been a member of his site. Andy is responsive, Spike is a behind the scenes lurker.

I am really annoyed. I have emailed about 50 of the guys on gardenweb that I email regularly about his antics. They are all either members over here already, or will be members shortly. If not, i'll kick their butts.

I am still browsing and contributing over there as well, but that is only until he kicks me off.

Its almost like its a mission to get kicked off now!

I think Kevin is already a member! If I remember correctly, I thought he was signed up.

Kevin is one of the best poster on GW.

Did you guys know that Spike once sent Kevin to "Disney"? He just mentioned it himself on a thread there and how he had to fight his way back on. Is Spike the owner over there? Or is he a lackey following orders from some higher level nitwit?

Kevin's post on "Oldtimer rollcall"

I have been here long enough that I got sent to disney and I had to fight to come back.... The good old days...
In the old days you had to be real careful what you said or Spike would can you.... "

I guess I'm liking it here more every day. I see alot of the other folks from "over there" are now here for probably similar reasons.

Oh heck he threatened me when I posted a thread of favorite Nascar drivers past and present. He's a piece of ______. I guess have the oldest website that is easy to get around but totally disorganized is what he wants.

I'm here... I hang out both places now....
I would not be surprised if GW folds...
I don't think it will ever be the same...
I don't like change so it will take me awhile to completely move over here...

Kevin, It's great to see your pictures. This forum will grow on you and you'll like the fact that older messages will be saved for future reference.

Spike takes banning you to heart.

I created a new email address and even went as far as to register an account over there using my wife's maiden name'd hotmail account that she still uses.

He had to go as far as to ban the entire range of IP addresses that come with both my work IP range and my Comcast range here at home.

That tells me that it was never about my post about the Alabama monument, but more of a game he likes to win so he has control over who's in and who's out.

Running the show like that will turn Garden Web into Garden Who??

This place is nicer. I don't post this as a sorrow or complaint, only to bring more light to the lengths that ding dong will go to get rid of you when he finally decides you are leaving.

I'm sure happier here... because Spike seems to be a Control Freak..... If I want to hang around a control freak, I already have a Mother-In-Law for that.

Actually, Spike always reminded me of her, for some reason!!
