Nine months passed...

I've finally finished making all tame and lighthearted; no mod-bashing, and at the bottom of every page it says, "None of the images contained herein were created by Mattel®, any of its departments or employees, and the names of users quoted have been changed except where used with permission."

So I appealed to Chris to just let me post a picture of my son, holding a Hot Wheels® Weinermobile™ while standing next to a real Weinermobile™... and he said:

Didn't I block your account? Is it only moderated?

To me you are saying one thing here yet doing something over there... To each their own... You are going to do what you are going to do and I will continue doing what I do.

What I don't understand is what makes me think that if I let you back on, I am not too sure I am not going to have to revisit this issue again and again.

I have asked the moderators what they are thinking about this and I have not heard back from all of them as of yet. Unless someone 'WOWS' me with something, my stance is still what is was back in February...

I guess that stance is, "We hate you and you can't play with us any more."

So Alan (and everyone)— thanks for putting in your good words, but like I said, don't hold your breath.

Holy cripes on a sit house door. I should try to find in the archived records all the times Chris posted replies of mirth at your li'l cartoon lampoons, Tom.

How quickly people forget that they once enjoyed your company.

Tom, they should invite you as one of the 'beta' testers. You know how to make a better website then all of Mattel's braintrust.

Tom, sorry to hear about the continual ban. They don't have any power over your website, so it's the only way they can get back at you.

I enjoy your site... Whatever the next incarnation is, I'm sure it will be entertaining.

Did anyone see the thread on admins and mods reading PM's? They pretty much said they can read these. It's not gonna change anything I'll say here.

Tom... if they don't let ya back in... maybe you should just burn your bridge and make BRR the way you want.

Okay. Since I would never visibly exist on, I renewed the BlueRealRiders domain. I created a Light side and a Dark side. Fiction and Fact.

I couldn't post to the HWC Bulletin Boards, but my secret Private Message thread had been going for two years, amassing over 200 pages of back-and-forth from the twelve Invited Members. There, we were unmoderated. We could go off-topic; we could say things that were forbidden on the Public Forums. We were having a good time.

And then— our Private Meeting was raided.
