Re: bannings

in before lock... But I agree.

And... I'm sure once the hits are way down that 2+2 will soften up.

Re: bannings

If Dan Druff is really banned that is ****ing ridiculous. He is an excellent poster.

Re: bannings

what i picked up from masons posts on the whole clean 2+2 up is that it is his site and he can do what he wants. Just the way it is.

Re: bannings

I totally agree about Druff. Let's not throw the baby out with the bathwater.

And for what it's worth, Mr. Newhouse, your credibility is waning of late.

You seem to have replaced "bloodbath" and all of its conjugations with *****ed and **** and **********.

One of the reasons anyone actually took your side way back when was because you seemed like a genuinely nice and naive guy who got screwed around by some lecherous and generally crappy people.

Now you're having radio arguments and throwing things at people in public places and have decided to start talking like a tough guy.

This is not sound PR, just so you know.

Re: bannings

The ironic thing is that Sklansky is the one who started most of those threads that Mason is pissed about. He stirred the pot in order to get more views on this site. He even bragged about the $50,000 that he was making from it. Then when things get out of control, and Sklansky is taking heat...

Re: bannings

Yea this is beyond absurd. Druff has been one of the best posters here for a long time. I think hes in the bottom ten percent of ban worthy people on here.

2+2 boycot until freedom?

Re: bannings

mason owns the site = he can do what he wants. TBH he just doesnt scroll nvg much or more threads would be deleted. He is pretty fair in terms of who he bans or not, he just doesnt see much of what goes on so alot of people escape his locks/bans.

I believe the above quote from another thread probably represents Managements thinking on the bannings.

I'm not saying it makes sense, just saying this seems to be their position.

Re: bannings

Personally I'm happy about the site not being all about B and B 24/7. Got old, was never very interesting, and turned 2+2 into Brandi's personal PR forum.

I don't really know Druff or why he was banned, so I can't comment about that part of the purge. But thank god the site's getting back to poker and away from two-bit poker gossip.

Um...you don't think we should have poker gossip in NVG?

What should we have? Micro-limit strategy discussion? Discussion about poker books? ...oh, wait...

Re: bannings

Did Brandi post anything to get banned for? I know there was all this weird discussion about her and her reputed behavior was pretty strange, but I don't see what she posted that was out of line.

Can you explain why? Nothing he has written is ban-worthy. Can you quote something?

Im guessing it is his pokerbob thread that Mason didn't like...

I just want to know why people think he should be banned. Some explanation would be nice.
