I don't want to see pictures of his apartment any more than I want to read his posts.

I asked you nice, Bob. Is this how you behave offline? Are you this belligerent, combative, and inconsiderate to everyone? What the fuck did I ever do to you except be a sad nerd at a keyboard trying to talk to some local people and maybe make some new friends.

Fuck you Bob. I'm not going to put up with your shit anymore. I'm not going to put up with any of this shit. You want me gone, I'm going.

This is easily the most unintentionally hilarious thread in months. Multiple unrelated grudge matches, 4Chan references, a Schick cameo, blowup dolls...Good grief.

What's the deal with hating on Shipley? Dude seems likeable to me.

Chuck took his name from a character in Caddyshack. Bob is from Seinfeld.

No point, just an observation.

For the last time, it's from the Cobb salad episode of Curb Your Enthusiam.

A bit of TDP historic perspective is in order I think...

Bob is far less offensive than Chuck was, though certainly not as witty, and that's why I don't have an issue with him.

In the past guys like Chuck were the standard that Jason, as forum moderator, set for what was "acceptable".
"Mr. Blues", in his heyday, was deemed not acceptable because he crossed the "virtual" demarcation line and started contacting people directly to voice his displeasure at their posts. He also threatened lawsuits, physical harm, etc...

The current drama pales in comparison to that.
As Chuck might say, "You're all bunch of Nancy boys" and you need to "toughen up your nipples" if you can't hack it.

Granted Chuck was personally friends or an acquaintance with many people on the board, incl. Joyce, which IMHO was why he was allowed to stay on despite some pretty vicious insults to new and old members alike.

Just my .02USD, your mileage may vary.

No one gets banned from TDPF unless they call or e-mail an "Isthmus" staff member and threaten to kill them.

This place would flush itself down a toilet real quick if jjoyce banned the entertainment.

Agreed.

This thread is ridiculous. And Bob Cobb is a knob. Take it.

Fucking amateurs, both.

You, on the other hand, have a long-ass row to hoe before you can even claim your loser-in-training badge, Scout. What you need, shit sponge, is to sit back and practice a little thing I like to call "shut the fuck up." Your posts here make Terry Schiavo look like Tesla. Go crawl back into the corner of whatever foul root cellar your parents are confining you to, you drooling, gibbering, turd-fondling freak.

The caliber of wit in this digital shithole is tepid enough without you shitting in the collective soup. And while I've retired (this lone exception excluded), I still like to think I can lurk on occasion and score a cheap laugh. Your pollution of that possibility is compounded with every monosyllabic utterance your colostomy bag of a brain sluices into the ether. The only explanation for your continued presence here is either that the admin has the patience of Job or all the motivation of a salted slug.

Fuck you with a bag of chips, Cheese.

And don't make me come back here again.


Is it you Schick? Is it really you?
