Has the 94th individual been gagged here? I noticed a thread started by Todd Larson called, I think, "Just For Fun" has been removed. Webmaster?

Yes, someone just took the #94 slot.

Actually Kyle, there was another thread that appeared for a nanosecond right after "just for fun" was removed - and it was pretty clear that it was started with the sole intent of backing the webmaster into a corner. In other words, Larry was left with little choice but to pull the plug. 'Tis a shame.

Lift yer glasses high, fellow mc.commies, in memory of our fallen comrade.

And Todd, if we ever happen to be in one of Miles City's spiritous establishments at the same time, please introduce yourself and I'll buy you a beer. Happy trails, mi amigo.

Considering that Larry took David to task for David's behavior, I don't know what Mr. Larson was upset about. Larry certainly didn't let David get away with it, even though they are friends.

I think we should keep careful track of the cut-off count and have a big celebration at 100!

I must have missed the part where Larry took me to task. Todd didn't need any help from me earning a spot on the list, though. It was all his own work. I felt like I had a mosquito buzzing around my ear all day yesterday and, unfortunately for Todd, I wasn't the only one who felt that way.

- Dave

Huh??? The issue wasn't about Dave -- so I'm not sure what you are talking about.

I wish there was, but there isn't. I did a simple database query in regards to Kyle's question (posed to me in a past thread) -- and the number of gagged accounts was 93 -- the latest becoming #94.

Most of the accounts that have been gagged have nothing to do with Miles City itself -- typically, they are spammers, who actually bother to sign up and post some type of spam (why they go through the effort, I don't know) -- and they end up being silently gagged.

Realistically, there are probably no more than a dozen or two people related to Miles City that have been gagged, and in some cases, especially from the earlier days, a person would use multiple accounts -- thus adding to the number which became 93, and is now standing at 94.

Something like:

select count(*) from users where status = "douchebag"

I would assume...

Well then it's actually only 93 as I still have my posting privileges...
