Back to give this place a second shot

Postby Tenacious D-Store » Sun Feb 15, 2009 12:42 am

I joined about a year and a half ago and was actually enjoying myself here, but left after receiving a yellow card simply for suggesting Barry Bonds was on steroids which I thought was pretty lame. I see I'm still toting around that yellow card. Anyway, big baseball/fantasy baseball fan. Fave teams are Jays and Dodgers (with a bit of a soft spot for the Royals... they'll get it going at some point). I am also a member of the Fantasy Sports Writers Association and write a weekly baseball column called "Field of Streams" during the MLB season.

That's a nice offer and I may consider it. I currently write for another sports forum where I have recently stepped down as mod over a disagreement with Admins over the poor and bias treatment of other members. I'm not happy with them at the moment and don't know if I will continue to allow them to publish my column this season. It's all up in the air, get back to me a little closer to the start of the regular season and we'll discuss it further.

Thanks. I'll look and see what I've got for a new sig. If I remember correctly many of the ones I attempted to use before were too big. I'm not sure I care for that one myself.

Huh? Half the Cafe think Bonds was on roids, and many have stated as much....I can't see how you got a warning for that.

Anyway, anyone who thinks Bonds is a cheat and a liar is cool by me, so welcome back! ;-D

No word of a lie, it's what I got the yellow card for. I thought it was pretty absurd myself. It's why I left for a year and a half. lol

If someone would like to remove it, I certainly wouldn't have any objections.

I wish I could change it. I modified a few other sigs so that they are no more than 100 megapixels high, but it still tells me that they are too big. I'll just go without one. I shrunk it down smaller than anyone else's and I still got the same error message.
