    Pizza cheese sticking to the roof of my mouth and leaving a burn that hurts for days.
    This is a very rare occasion that I will criticise pizza!

    One of the biggest gripes I have had in a long time was joining a forum - a vBulletin forum like this one - and finding out I can't modify my options for how threads are displayed, whether my email is kept private or if I want PMs. Simple stuff that makes a forum easier and more functional for the individual. None of the options make it possible for the user to disrupt or jeopardize the forum security.

    Well, there had to be a good reason, but I could find it anywhere. So, I asked. My question was replied to by a staffer who pointed me to a topic that had nothing to do with the options and then another staffer gave me crap for clarifying my questions. Finally my posts were all deleted. I asked that my account be deleted and they gave me crap about that too.

    These guys wanna sell product. Of course, they have such a large chunk of the market, I guess they don't care if a newbie gets roughed up and certainly don't have any regard for the new forum member's most basic choices - unless they pay extra, of course.

    PHP Link Directory will never get my business until they offer a little respect. I can't stand companies that have that kind of contempt for their potential customers, no matter how popular their product is.

    I feel better now.

    I spoke with you directly about this. Thanks for letting us know what happened. I am offering you respect right now by trying to follow up with you.

    Hopefully I gave you a satisfactory reply earlier about what happened, and did everything you asked and more. You should have received 3 emails already from me, after having received responses from 3 moderators of our forum as well. We were trying to communicate with you.

    (one of our moderators moved his post when they didn't understand his intentions, and he thought it was deleted. Unfortunately, I didn't see what happened until a few hours after the fact. The post is in our moderators forum, not deleted, because the moderators wanted to make sure he received the correct response)

    I think getting responses from 3 moderators, a phone call between the staff to discuss what happened after the post was moved to the moderator's forum, and 3 emails from the admin is a pretty good response, all in 24 hours.

    If you have more questions about your specific case, you should talk to me more. As you have observed by now, I am here and trying to help the best I can after 3 moderators didn't understand what was going on.

    The problem you had is not something that has come up to the degree it did today. Normally, people make a few posts, and then there is no longer a restriction, and its no big deal. To you, it was a big deal. I can see how you got frustrated, and we'll try to configure vbulletin in such a way as to prevent spam but not limit the editing of the profile.

    It's very upsetting to see talkboards that have "gripes" threads!

    There I am sitting peacefully, enjoying some quiet time here working on my computer, and there they are, those pesky visitors, endless talking in the neighbors swimming pool, talking about nothing, just idle chit chat, endless, going on and on. Ugly voices too.

    Why do people who have nothing to say talk the most?

    get yourself a stun grenade, throw it over the fence and see what happens. Don't forget to post the video to youtube though!

    p.s. your gripes are appreciated - keeps the thread going.

    Man, they just keep going. The grenade does sound tempting, maybe some water balloons… I love to have a little tiny airplane, like a mini copter to take off vertically and just buzz around and do my water balloon duty

    don't worry a stun grenade is not violent at all. It just makes a big bang and produces a flash. You could couple that with a smoke grenade maybe. It may come across as slightly unfriendly though - be warned!

    oi chair! you calling me web host?
