Dougloid Booted Off Of A.Net. Life Goes On
I've been permanently banned from posting on airliners.net for the silliest of reasons.
Here's the commo I received, and my response to it.

I write to inform you your a.net account has been permanently closed. The reason for this is your very long history of posting flamebait/disrespecting posts. We had tried discussing this with you but your latest response to us was -
I will take it in good grace and I shall leave the arena bloody but unbowed. Sometimes you just have to stand up to people even though you know it's going to have a cost.
This demonstrates you have no intention of changing your post style to comply with a.net rules
I suspended you in 2006 and your response then was
Hey, no problem....I can't promise I'll wash my mouth out with soap-only my mom gets to do that-but I shall mind my Ps and Qs henceforth.
Here we a 2 and a half years later and the moderators are still having to tidy up after you. Well we are not going to do it any longer.
Here's my response.You know what? I couldn't give a damn. I've got work to do here.If you people are so scared of whiners that you won't back me when I take some Hitler/SS fanboy like Caltech to task because you're afraid that some Germans might be offended then you're running a pretty piss poor shop.Fact is, what I told him-specifically, historical matters that were the objective of the Nazi state-is probably something that no present day German could be offended by because they are matters of fact-people DID get turned into lampshades and bars of soap, courtesy of the SS.Somewhere or other you people decided that it was your personal mission to ride herd on me and get my ass booted off and you succeeded. Whatever.
Have a nice life.
