From this thread.
Chngpe01,You have been deregistered before for your troublemaking past in CS and we have tolerated you by having you registered in your new nick. However,you seems to be bent on taking issues with admin and moderator esp me (as I was the one who first dereg you a couple of years back ). You want to be here you follow OUR rules, if not please leave. In this case we are evicting you since you cannot tolorate too.... good riddance to bad rubbish!
We have put in alot of our time $ and personal resources for the good of this community, organsing 1st Fri talk @ SAM , Live at SAM all for free and at who's time and $ - ours! we even did Ganbatte Japan and raise $ for the Tsunami victims. What have you done Alan? just type the keyboard and criticise and talk bad about the mod and admin. Its is frustrating, facing rubbish like you and some others, that made many do not want to take up our offers be moderators here. We do not even ask for gratitude or any hint of gratefulness ... . To people like you we just give you a special treatment ie. the same type of treatment you give us. I personally do not take pleasure in dereging ppl here but I also do not aim to be a mr nice and popular in this forum too. We just do what we need to and remember we are also human and have temperament too.
you have always use your moderator rights and just shut people up. Have you ever reflect on your words and actions? Have you actually thought about how other forummers feel when you complain that I don't appreciate the mods?
You say I am a trouble maker. I have always treated people with respect in all my posts which is more than I can say for you. Look at my initial post. In what way was I rude to you? You just went berserk. I think everyone can see for themselves. In what way has I belittle the contributions of the mods? Must the mods be correct in EVERY SINGLE CASE?
You say you spent a lot of time organising things while people like me did nothing. What is CLUBSNAP? Is it a place where we organise events like Ganbatte, photography talks or is it first and foremost a forum where people gather and share PICTURES and POSTS about photography.
I think it your high and mighty viewpoint that you have forgotten it is we the OLD BIRDS of CS that really have helped CS reached its present state. Is our time spent on the forum any less important than the time you spent organising "events"?? Frankly, I think your post is just plain rude and totally belittle the contributions of CS forummers .
You said I do nothing but "just type the keyboard and criticise and talk bad about the mod and admin". I have came back to CS in Jun 2009 and since then I have distinctly try not to comment about mods although many times I feel like putting in my 2 cents. All I did mainly was just post my travel pics/videos and discuss about cameras for close to THREE YEARS.
BTW I got deregistered in 2008 for argueing that moderators should not anyhow close threads. History has shown that I was right. Camera comparison threads are here all the time in CS. So why was that thread closed in 2008? Should not I get a reprieve?
What do people in CS wants? I am not sure about others but what I want is a friendly forum where people can gather and share their views, good or bad. It is a forum where we can share pictures we have taken and get feedback from people. That is secondary to "events" , "talks" that you are so proud about.
Seriously, that is all gone. Take a look around you. How many old birds in CS you still recognize from 2004? Is it just only ME who is the trouble maker?
Seriously, if you get all those disillusioned old birds to gather in another forum, we could probably give CS a run for its money. Unfortunately, there is no coordinated actions.
