Yep, I just checked I guess I did. I just wondered why my link had been removed. I haven't done anything else. I never even posted any pictures, don't know why he was yelling at me for that. I guess he thought the Strayhound was mine.

Just so you know, i stood up for you and your site. Possibly at the cost of getting banned myself. No matter the consequenses, i think it was worth it. He does not have good people skills.....and your site rocks, especially the lack of advertisements.

I read what you said on there Jason. Thanks. I don't know how easy it is to see what one person posts but when I first found that site I posted a lot of information that I learned while doing my bus. It's true that since I started my site I have posted little on the other site. Mostly because if it isn't relevant to him then don't post it. The episode back in December when I posted to come here and post your pictures in the gallery was because he was bitching at everyone because their photos where too big. Much like he is doing every day now.



As for me posting pictures that were too big I don't think I have ever put anything up there in the photos or files section. I still think he is confusing me with Strayhound. Oh well... he can think what he wants.



As for the rest of you who are also banned from there, I don't know why you were banned, but nothing posted here has ever been a problem. Must just be easy to get on his bad side.

Steve,



I you think about it, the only reason to get banned from a publicly available site should only be related to profane or abusive language or (maybe) posting consistently off-topic (but most on-line groups have a place to do that).



I've founded and moderated a couple of successful (and on-going) groups and have been invoved in many for several years. The best and most active of the groups have always shared in common a "no rules, just be nice" philosophy; the groups are essentially self-regulating; the moderator/owner/manager only steps in to git rid of spam. Things that stretch the limits are usually dealt with in private emails between the moderator and offender and not made a public spectacle.



In my (maybe not so humble) opinion a moderator/owner/manager that excercises his/her "powers" publicly on the group's message board is more into inflating his/her own ego and establishing a "kingdom"; it's not really about having an open, self-regulating group that functions without much interference. Peer pressure is awesome and carries much more weight that one person (even if it is the owner of the group) "yelling loudly" in publicly displayed messages.



Anyone starting a group to which any member of the on-line public can join, without invitation and without qualification must realize that the group will be composed of a broad cross-section of the public and therefore embrace many personalities, even if all share a common interest in the group's reason for being. If one wants a kingdom (or dictatorship) that group ought to be a closed group joined only by approval or invitation; at least that way the person joining knows what rules one is going to live by.



I didn't get banned from the other site (probably only a matter of time if I had stayed; not because of anything I said but rather because of what I would have said) but choose to leave and come here when faced with the abusive nature of that group's owner. This is so much nicer!

I went to the site. Interesting. The moderator has a very......ancient Egyptian.....attitude. Not only does he ban people, but after banning them he deletes all their previous posts, kind of like the pharoahs chiseling the images of competing, defeated pharoahs from monuments.

Just thought you'd like to know..I just sent this to the "other" list...



Arky, I've waited on replying to you to give myself a little time to cool

down and think about what you are saying....

First off, the 'schoolbusconversionuts' group is a great group of people and

I've got way more from it then I could ever give back....your ideas of

"keep it simple stupid" have kept me from over reaching many times, thank

you for that...however(you knew there would be a however didn't you), I can

not stand by and watch you try to tear down an individual who has done

nothing wrong(except in your eyes)except try to offer another, not instead,

of place for us skoolie nuts to gather....as far as Lapeer is concerned, why

would you care what he says on Skoolie.net? Why are you even reading that

site if it's so bad.....Okay, I'm done....hope everyone here well...if

you're ever in West Tennesse and need help don't hesitate to

call(731-445-4979)...yeah, even you Arky..:-)....don't bother banning me,

I'm outa here on my own....



EldoMike



So...looks like you guys are stuck with me here....

Hi Mike,



Good to see you over here; sorry it's under the circumstances it is but it's our good fortune to have you join us in this much more comfortable electronic clubhouse.

I got booted from schoolbusnuts today. I'm really suprised actually. The moderator of that site and i have been chatting in e-mail, i though we had come to an understanding.



Even though i am no longer a part of the site, i still believe there is tons and tons of good info available there. I really like most of the people involved with that site.



Skoolie.net is awsome too. I love the lack of adds here, and the friendly atmosphere.
