And, just for the record, I had nothing to do with the TomZ thread becoming locked, I was otherwise occupied ordering my dinner of mahi-mahi fish wrapped in bacon with green beans, rice and lots of other nonsense :)
About TomZ's thread becoming locked, it wasn't. At least, not for Martin. Martin was cussing at me, my responses were mild in comparisson, but were rejected. That is why I left for a few months. Just recently, Martin used the word, "fuck" in response to me. I responded with "WTF", but that was rejected.
I don't know why the moderators tolerate Martin's antics, but they do.
For over a month now, a Russian girl has been cultivating her "love" for me. I met her on vk. I have been regularly emailing her.
I do not believe she is the one emailing me. Maybe it's her through an interpreter. Probably both, and is probably getting coached. Her vk messages have been simple, consisting mostly of "I miss you" and "Did you read my letter?" meaning, answer it. Then, her emails have been lengthy and detailed.
I have experiences and have been told that "I love you" is very special to FSU women. They don't say that unless they mean it. But, she told me that.
Then came the close. She could not stand it anymore. She asked her mother for permission. She asked for my address. She was coming to me. The very next letter, she said she could only come up with the equivalent of approximately $300 USD after borrowing from friends and family. She needs another $1,000.
Her aunt works with the travel agency. Russians come to the US all of the time. Her aunt knows the paper work.

There's an aviation related forum where one of the moderators clearly took a dislike to me, so much so that it affected his mind.
Just one example someone wrote to me "TRTFQ" which I learned from Google means "Try Reading The F'cking Question", nothing was moderated yet some weeks later, in innocent explanation whilst not cursing anybody, I posted "WTF" and I was told off regarding it.
Then, one day a mass brawl broke out, a number of red cards were handed out myself being the recipient of one of them, I had been in communication with that moderator and it was apparent that he had lost his mind and that he was never going to agree with me regarding anything and everything.
More recently I have seen a pic of him, he must be 80 y/o if he's a day, can you imagine Ronald Reagan trying to moderate a forum at 80 years of age, and just recently this moderator is in hospital long-term whilst the forum are begging for money, for thousands of pounds, so his disabled wife can go and visit him.
Yeah right, it's a tough life, if he'd not been not such an asshole when he was in good health then his victims might be more accommodating to him now he's in ill health.
So you're not the only one that get's picked on, it's part of forum society, the powers that be appoint these "pricks" as moderators and the power goes to their heads.
