I was following that thread and was real tempted to join in. On the surface it seemed like a safe thread, but engaging with close minded, stubborn people with no sense of humor was going to end up with bannings for sure. You definitely didnt deserved to get banned. Welcome here and good on you for this contest.Alrighty, so I'm newish here, but I've recently been permanently banned from that "other site" for
"rules violations""troll, crybaby" (update probably b/c of this thread; internet tough guys are the best). The odd part about that is that, of course, when asked (repeatedly) what rules I violated, they wouldn't say (presumably, because I didn't actually violate any). Rather, as near as I can tell, what got me banned was this post I made on THIS site. They didn't much like being challenged on their own site and apparently liked it even less when it got mentioned on an entirely different site.
In any event, like any newcomer to a family, I've come to try and gain acceptance through downright open, unconcealed bribery, and a good 'ol fashioned game.
- Post your best story of run-ins with The Bros. and/or their Mods (links, if they're still up, are welcome), with particular emphasis on stories highlighting their elitism, general disdain for their users, and general douchebaggery.
The Prize Pool:
- Stories must be true; verified by you personally (either it directly involved you or you witnessed it).
- Stories which resulted in a ban will be awarded 2 extra votes.
- Stories involving Todd, F2Brewers, or blue-dream will be awarded 1 extra vote for each such individual involved (e.g., Todd stories will get 1 extra vote, Todd & F2Brewers stories will get 2 extra votes, and so on).
- If you have an active account on that other site right now and are banned as a result of participating, I will send you free beer.
- If you have an active account on that other site right now and want to post a story, but don't want to risk being banned, PM me the story and I will post it anonymously on your behalf.
- Winners will be determined by the number of likes a story receives. Only votes from accounts in existence as of the date this thread was created will be counted (no stuffing the ballot box); note, however, that stories from ANY account (regardless of when created) are eligible to win (I cross-posted this in a few places, so hopefully this gets a few more new users here).
- Voting will end at 3:12 PM EST on December 12, 2014 (exactly 1 week from the time of my ban).
- When voting ends the top 3 finishers will each get to pick 2 beers from the below Prize Pool, one at a time to ensure fairness. Selection will go in the following order: 1st Place, 2nd Place, 3rd Place, rinse, repeat.
