There's a rumor floating out there that he's been banned.  Check the randomness thread.

He seemed to constantly stir up trouble between sierra and the bmb and he constantly got around the filters and posted words like F*ck after being asked not to.  I am guessing this is why he was banned but I have no actual knowledge of why he was banned.

If you go to the BMB you can read about it there.  I think Angry posted a link or someone did.

Well, I agree he has been talking shat about Sierra for a while, the two-faced-ness is kinda messed up...

But it's the internet, isn't much you can do, it sucks cause he seems cool over here and then he goes to BMB and talks shat and his personality kinda changes....it's too bad really.


Confused

Yeah, honestly I don't understand all the hate, I was looking around BMB and there is just so much damn hate all over the place, I would much rather be here with nice people, who cares if there are some inexperienced people here, we all started somewhere and I'd rather be in a welcoming community than a hater one. They even have a thread about who they hate on the forums.

They may think they are hot shat, but honestly, they just seem like female cleanser bags who want to hate on everyone. Not people I would want to associate with. Confused


I like Sierra way better. Smile


PS: Rocheezy, I'm really sorry I haven't gotten to your sig yet, midterms these past two weeks, plus snowboarding all weekend, I'll really try to get it done this week but I have a Math exam, a Sociology essay, a BLaw exam, and a speech to prepare, so we'll see! I'll really try though, you've been more than patient! Smile

While it's true that Spenser's attitude is not the most uplifting, I'm suprised to see him banned. I guess I can see being banned for bypassing swear word filters, but seriously, there's nearly nudie pics all over the place... which is worse?

The whole thing is just kind of retarded(BMB Vs. Sierra). There are a lot of similarities, but then there are also 2 sets of rules that each are subjected to. Over there you get flamed for asking what are perceived to be stupid questions. Here you get let down a little easier because it's linked to a store. There's not a lot of calling out the stupidity on this site because not a lot of people can do it tactfully enough to have it not be considered a flame, so people just let it pass. Also a lot more people roll through here because of all the deals, and they join and make dumb posts to try and get points. Personally I would make fun of a lot of things that get posted here too, are you saying you wouldn't?

For me it comes down to facts of life and decisions I've made. I enjoy being a nice guy. Nice guys get made fun of, right wrong or indifferent, it's gonna happen. I'm alright with that, so who cares if BMB has a "Stupid Sierra Thread of the Day"? Why does it matter? I care about what some of the people on here say because I've had enough back and forth with them that I consider them friends, but the guys from the BMB, Who gives a shat?

And one last thing in honor of Spenser, It's just the internet.

You know I don't really care how helpful he was to people or how knowledgeable he was. The guy did nothing but talk shat about Sierra and the people that come on here when he was in that other place. I think the whole forum vs forum thing is stupid but it is really stupid when you come here and try and act one way then you go somewhere else just to talk about people here.

I could care less if he got banned or why he got banned. Most people on here get along and actually go ride together so it is not just some internet forum. Sorry but I have no respect for anyone on or off the internet that talks shat behind peoples back. Screw him and good riddance.

well said.  If bashing other forums/people helps them sleep at night then good for them.  All I care is that i enjoy talking to people here and getting some crazy deals along the way.

This is a sad day and to emphasis Phatman, These boards are completely different then the bmb because we are linked to the store, also, many of us like to give advice and help out the people with newbie questions, hence the advice and live chat feature.where bmb could give less of a flying F-word.

We stay at sierra for a reason.

He didn't come over here and be like "Wow! Sierra is Great" he always said when he thought something was stupid whether through actually calling it stupid or copious amounts of sarcasm. Hell the reason a lot of people didn't like him was because he called a lot of stuff stupid.

I don't really care what he says about Sierra as a site to be honest. The thing that pissed me off is when he was over there saying most of the people that post on here are shatty riders and talking about the actual people that post here. I don't remember him ever telling someone they sucked while he posted on here so why run to some other place to do it.

Spenser is Spenser!!!  i haven't seen him create many problems lately (i.e F-bombs).  If I remember right he did mention he just turned 21ish.  He is very knowledgable but he is also immature as well.  I expect him to make mistakes.  Hell I did a lot of things at that age that I regret.  I'm sure he will be backWink

And one last thing in honor of Spenser, It's just the internet.

The funny thing is, there's just as much stupidity over there as there is here. They just don't like to admit it. Nevermind that this forum is about 1000x more active then BMB. It's the same handful of people on there all the time - so if anybody new shows up, it's immediately like "who the hell are you?". Somebody asks a question that might be obvious to other people - and they just go off. Don't understand their inside jokes, they go off. Get salty because they went off on you - they go off. 

noticing a trend?

It is what it is. Not everybody's like that over there - that's just the dominating image that's put out there. If you can sort through the crap there are some good people and a lot of good info - you just have to keep in mind that, it is in the internet....

I'm here for the gangbang....

oh - and the funniest thing, even though they all slam on "patio land" any chance they get, almost every one of 'em still shops here. They regularly admit Sierra has the best prices anywhere, and with only a few exceptions - i'm sure the vast majority of 'em still buy stuff.

but - don't say that too loud - sierra's evil evil evil - they're killing snowboarding!

I think he used "foul language" in the chat.  There's no filter in the chat, so words like sh*t and f*ck were posted with zero edits.  He was warned about "bypassing" the nonexistant chat "filters"...But I think he posted "foul language" after being warned and got the boot as a result.

Yeah, I lurk over there sometimes so I see that their hypocrisy knows no boundsLOL I've ridden with a couple guys from over there and I know there are a few good guys. Like someone else said more than anything it reminds me of highschool.

The whole thing is just kind of retarded(BMB Vs. Sierra). There are a lot of similarities, but then there are also 2 sets of rules that each are subjected to. Over there you get flamed for asking what are perceived to be stupid questions. Here you get let down a little easier because it's linked to a store. There's not a lot of calling out the stupidity on this site because not a lot of people can do it tactfully enough to have it not be considered a flame, so people just let it pass. Also a lot more people roll through here because of all the deals, and they join and make dumb posts to try and get points. Personally I would make fun of a lot of things that get posted here too, are you saying you wouldn't?

For me it comes down to facts of life and decisions I've made. I enjoy being a nice guy. Nice guys get made fun of, right wrong or indifferent, it's gonna happen. I'm alright with that, so who cares if BMB has a "Stupid Sierra Thread of the Day"? Why does it matter? I care about what some of the people on here say because I've had enough back and forth with them that I consider them friends, but the guys from the BMB, Who gives a shat?

And one last thing in honor of Spenser, It's just the internet.

The funny thing is, there's just as much stupidity over there as there is here. They just don't like to admit it. Nevermind that this forum is about 1000x more active then BMB. It's the same handful of people on there all the time - so if anybody new shows up, it's immediately like "who the hell are you?". Somebody asks a question that might be obvious to other people - and they just go off. Don't understand their inside jokes, they go off. Get salty because they went off on you - they go off. 

noticing a trend?

It is what it is. Not everybody's like that over there - that's just the dominating image that's put out there. If you can sort through the crap there are some good people and a lot of good info - you just have to keep in mind that, it is in the internet....

I seen how they jumped on you Sinix, pretty amazing stuff.  Ahhh well good bye Spenser, hope you enjoy your banishment to the land all things mean and inconsiderate.

Now if we could only ban angry agent from posting anymore pictures of himself we would be good.

but - don't say that too loud - sierra's evil evil evil - they're killing snowboarding!

nah, it's pretty well known there are 5 or so who HATE HATE
The rest just do it because it's funny.

The older Sierra threads were a lot more rich with diversity.  Those who supported Patioland just got tired of the vicious cycle of piss fighting
