I feel like I'm going to get jumped just because of what I might say here, but I did happen to vote no. I just can't bring myself to ban someone.

Who I am to say who must leave this forum because he may steal or lie?
For all it really matters, he can do that all he wants, and we should be no one to shut him up. What if Cold decides to keep him here? What then will you all have to say about Cold?

If we're trying to keep from from stealing and lying to newbs, thats sort of a dumb thing to do in my opinion. If we KNOW he will do so using the forum, then I say he should go since it would make everyone look bad. But the thing is, we haven't just left him alone for long enough to continue to go about his own business on the forum without being attacked. If we just let him be for a while, he will again prove himself trustworthy, or untrustworthy by his actions. He could be trying to fix things with customers now for all we know, but we're holding down.

No one should be kicked off the forum for what he says.

I say for now, prevent him from conducting business using the forum.
And discontinue darklasers ads on LPF.

But his account should be left alone, as he is still entitled to his own opinions.

I might a part of this "democratic" system we have here, but if for some reason Cold allows him to stay, despite the results of the poll, I will back him up completely.

Whatever becomes of this poll, so let it be. No more polls about Tyler after this one. No complaining about the results vs. the outcome.

If Cold keeps him or loses him, I'll be in full support of the decision.

I'm with you, Asherz.

Sounds like you are becomming paranoid, really.

I see that you cant get through a post without writing something negative about someone you know next to nothing about. Are you working hard at behavouring like an angry teen?
Behavouring? Man...

Stuff like this makes me want to stop posting on the forum. It's a simple concept. Do you want LPF to be known to harbor dishonest thieves, or don't you?

You are a member of a self-moderated forum. If you care about how the forum is, then it is up to you and all of us to help keep it a pleasant place to do business.
It is your responsibility as much as anyone's.

For all it really matters, he can do that all he wants, and we should be no one to shut him up. What if Cold decides to keep him here? What then will you all have to say about Cold?

If c0ld keeps him here in the face of a vote otherwise and his criminal behavior, I'm sure some folks will leave. I would be very surprised to see that happen.

If we're trying to keep from from stealing and lying to newbs, thats sort of a dumb thing to do in my opinion. If we KNOW he will do so using the forum, then I say he should go since it would make everyone look bad.

He's been here for some time already, and this is FAR from the first time he's been called out and reported to c0ld. Time's up.

No one should be kicked off the forum for what he says.

But rather for what he does, perhaps?

Perhaps in respect to his views on this issue, but I'm sure those labels do not define him.

Your apology was a stand up thing to do however.
Actually, he said sorry to you and not to me. He never posted anything bad about you so I dont really know why he did that.

ssargon, as HS just said, your vote was not for the issue at hand. You should have saved that vote for the " are some people on LPF too mean?" poll.
Point taken althou I still feel that people need to stop being so overtly aggressive in here.

So how long does this have to go on?
the votes need to be counted, and action needs to be taken. This is not even a close call. The members have spoken. The majority want him to step down.


I thought it was funny last night, when that thread of him being a pot farmer was posted. I thought it was even funnier when he denied that was him.
Yet one of are members discovered that those photos were being hosted on the same photobucket account that he uses for posting pictures on LPF

Thanks Th0ughts

Shortly after this, all the pot photos went missing. LOL
You can only lie for so long before you have to pay.

Like the poster above said.
What will happen if he is allowed to stay? Eventually the elders will have to give up their quest to ban him. For their own sanity, and the sanity of the forum.
Threads and warnings, discussing Tyler's exploits. Will get lost and buried. New members will have deal with him on their own. With the risk of not getting what the paid for.

He has lied one too many times. Too many excuses have spewed forth.
It's those excuses that bother me the most. I actually care less about the lying and steeling.

I have also, thought about speaking out against Tyler before. Just always feared, him giving me negative rep. Like he has to so many other members. Well guess what I don't care anymore. I don't want someone like him on this forum.
Go ahead Tyler negative rep me:na:

I agree that if he doesn't get banned, because he helps the forum financially, I am not sure I want to be part of a forum that will allow people to be ripped off, and get away with it if you help play for the site.

If c0ld lets us know how much he contributes per month to the site, I am sure members here would be more than willing to cover that to stop this bullshit.

Crazy Jay spent several long hours this weekend pulling multiple threads togther so people could see the evidence in an easier to find form. Then you come in and tell him you made your decision based NOT on the evidence, but rather on how you feel about the way we are talking to/about Tyler. I'm sure his frustration just got the better of him.

Tyler needs to go away simply to stop this crap from happening around him. It does not follow others around. He brings it on himself. Add that to the fact that he is a thief and a liar and you have a strong basis for banning. Others have been banned for much less (ask Arenared). Whether we like it or not, banning is the principle tool for keeping peace on the forum.

We have no other way to control the actions of negative people here.

Unplesant yes, but necessary


DO THE RIGHT THING! I can't believe what a dilemma this is for some people..

It is situational ethics at its finest

Peace,
dave

I think what most people here miss is that this forum is SELF MODERATED! Nothing will be done about this if no one brings it up. The admin has asked, that if we feel someone should be banned, to start a poll with our reasonings so it's easier for him to sort out.

There are no moderators reading over our posts, never will be, so this forum needs to be kept peaceful in whatever ways we can.

Well, I presented myself a couple of weeks ago so you are welcome to look it up in the "new to the forum posts" part of this site if thats really what you are interested in.

If not I guess you just tried to argue that I am Tyler in disguise or that my views are meaningsless compared to yours?

Since you brought it up....:whistle:

This is your 1st post....

http://laserpointerforums.com/f39/darkarmyofones-laser-sale-complete-lasers-shipped-world-wide-42103-7.html#post578464

Did you actually purchase that 400mw laser from Darkarmyofone...:undecided:

If so... does it perform as specified... does it actually output 400mW
of 405nm.. Did you do a Power test of the Laser's output on an LPM to be sure...

BTW... where outside of the USA are you from...:thinking:
Just curious...

Wonder why Tyler's been so quiet? Perhaps he finally got it through that thick skull of his that shit's finally about to hit the fan?

Shit has been hitting the fan ever since people found out what he was doing, it's just that the fan is being turned up to full speed now :D :D

Well, I can actually vote no just because I think this seam more like a thread of posting bad things about a person than a thread about facts. Founded or unfounded it does not create a good climate for a debate.
That makes no sense at all.... did you just fall of the turnip truck...:thinking:
Or are you just Trolling... I question your logic..:undecided:

The Poll is to vote YES or NO to banning Tyler for the PROOF that has
been presented to the Forum Community..

It is not a YES or NO vote against the Forum Community members that did
VOTE or air their views...

You need to comprehend what this Poll is actually for...

It is not for your venue of punishing members by voting opposite
for no other reason than your lack of understanding the PROOF...:cool:

Its no use. He won't get it or doesn't want to. I think his responses should be considered null if Cold would to agree. The poll should be accurate

Edit: So basically the ones who voted "no" are the ones who either didn't read the information or haven't been around long enough.

I believe the first post in this thread has numerous links to the FACTS you are wanting to see. If you haven't already, please go through and read each of those links, then think about what you just posted.

It amazes me how many people think it's OK if he continues ripping people off and stealing from his own suppliers.

I like how this whole thing has taken over the forum...I even just got a propaganda PM titled "DONT BAN DARKARMYOFONE" from some member with 4 posts.
