Hey man,

Bummer that you got banned.  Personally, I dislike it when the moderators of ANY forum choose to play god on posts that are anything less than blatantly offensive and off-topic.  Ya know, something along the lines of pushing porn or something.  Watching personal p*ssing matches is half the fun of the internet!

However, since you felt his attack on your location and lifestyle was uncalled-for, I'm confused as to why you think it's ok to come here with the same tired name-calling?  I mean, "commie"?  Who even talks like that anymore?  The Soviet Union hasn't even existed for over a decade.

Now, I'm sure not a communist, but I don't blindly toe the U.S party line either.  Keeping an open mind is a GOOD thing.  I'm also surely not gay, but I work with lots of 'em.  I'm an airline pilot, and a lot - not all, but a lot - of the male flight attendants are gay.  Who cares?  They do their jobs fine, and most of them are ok to grab a beer with on the overnight.  Why would I, you, or anyone else care what they do with their personal lives?  Also, I happen to enjoy trees.  Sorry if that somehow offends you?  And lastly, here's the dictionary def of "liberal":

1 Not limited to or by established, traditional, orthodox, or authoritarian attitudes, views, or dogmas; free from bigotry.

2  Favoring proposals for reform, open to new ideas for progress, and tolerant of the ideas and behavior of others; broad-minded.

Basically, someone who's open minded and looking to improve things when they need it.  That really doesn't sound like someone worth attacking?

I'm not personally offended by your remarks, just pointing out the insensibility of some of them.  I mean, I've spent a lot of time all over the country, and man, do you REALLY want to compare the intelligence/education of the average persons from LA and CA?   ;-)

See ya...

Hey, welcome to the club... well, I was almost a full time member but I got a pardon, now if I get an APOLOGY.

You can read the sorted details at www.k8ys.us/qrz.htm or from the index page, just click on BANNED.

The basis of this ban is a lie built on a lie driven by a twit, paid for by Fred.

I was banned because I have junk for sale on my web page, you know, sell off the old to buy the new... Seems that I was competition and the pitiful advertisers on qrz could not handle competition, so they banned me. I protested, and then the lies started flying. I am not allowed to post my web site name WWW.K8YS.US in my bio or in my signature line.

I have it all layed out for all to read.

I am actually looking forward tot he Hamvention this year, I really hope that someone from QRZ attends, I would like to meet them.


Ban enough users and it will not longer be QRZ but will be QRT.

Yep.  If someone does something you don't like, call 'em a Nazi, Commie, or queer.  That takes you down a few notches.

Hey, you can even call 'em all three!  And add more, too.  I figure for every name calling a person does, he gets another ten to twenty years knocked off his maturity level.  Some of those guys are back to sucking on the pacifier.  

Oh, yes, it is ALWAYS the other guy's (the Gay, Nazi,Commie Queer guy's) fault.  Yep.  

Better break out another box of pacifiers.

Years ago, the owner of QRZ made some off-color comment about something political. The think the comment was made in an email pushing some product, but can't recall exactly where and what the comment was.  So I sent him an email and stated that I thought it was inappropriate.  He replied with a "kiss my a _ _ and I don't care if you do or don't buy my products" kind of note.  So it appears to me that QRZ's politics are to the left and if you are to the right, they don't like that. So who cares if you are banned from QRZ, don't support them or buy their products.  I haven't bought a thing from them since that email was received (I was not banned from anything though, well probably will be if they read this), but I don't really care either.  There are plenty of other places to hang out and support like eHam!

A year ago, right after W4AN died, and eHam coincidentally experienced, and survived, a short "outage", K8YS wrote on QRZ:

"WHEW! that was CLOSE!
eHam is populated by the QRZ undesirables (banned, rejected...), they would have no place to go if eHam ever shut its doors.
eHam is the ham homeless shelter of the Internet."

Then, somewhat ironically, a few days ago he wrote in this very thread,
"Hey, welcome to the club... well, I was almost a full time member but I got a pardon, now if I get an APOLOGY.

You can read the sorted details at www.k8ys.us/qrz.htm or from the index page, just click on BANNED. "

I checked it out. Whew...

Glad we could be there for ya, man!

How do you know and why do you care if he is gay?  Sounds like you brought this on yourself.

CQD....

"Of course, I'm just an illiterate, inbred southerner.  What the hell do I know, right?"

Hmmm.  Maybe you shouldn't try so hard to promote that ill-informed belief.

QRZ liberal?HuhHuh?
that group is about the most uptight ultra right wing group of morons that cant realize that censorship is bad. i have been called a left wing nut on that site and called a right winger on another simply because i think for my self. if the south is so damn conservative, why do they keep sending democrats to DC?
oh yeah i forgot lincoln was a republican.
QRZ is a joke, plain and simple. i belong to multiple boards all of which have thier own strong points. look around and everyone can find one or more places to frequent.
