    I am happy, no more reason to see his need to post threads about his palestian shithole on this site

    If that were a crime, half of us would be gone already.

    I found him pleasant enough. And if Bonaparts is still here, what on earth could Sam have done that was bad enough to send the rarely-wielded RJ ban hammer into action? He's probably just taking a break.

    We as members can delete all our posts? Even quoted ones?

    Why does Admin do this and delete a person from RJ's servers entirely? At best he should have done what Admin himself had suggested he do at times, that is to say that he could give "time outs" to people he's willing to ban. If a permanent ban is justified though, the person should just be banned outright but not have the entirety of their postings deleted.

    So Admin has a tendency to do wholesale deletions than just simply banning people, and sometimes banning people with little rhyme or reason once a complaint, perhaps simple, is lodged against an individual poster. Admin may not have all the time in the world to vet claims against individual posters and may just trust complaints as they go to him. I suspect that some posters have come to realize this and have otherwise manipulated Admin to ban, if not delete posters from RJ, as a means to settle their petty difference with other posters. (Or maybe there are some incendiary postings from GladiatorSam that I just don't know about and in making these posts he deserves his ban and deletion?).

    I didn't necessarily agree with everything he said, but overall I think he was a pretty good guy. Sorry to see him gone if he's gone.

    Speaking of banned, did that loser Trump2016 get banned again?

    I think you can get banned for harassing someone, let's say, with private mails. of course I don't know about Sam, I don't even remember his profile except he must be the one who's passionate about palestine-israel thing.

    I didn't at all agree with him in re the Palestinian crap, but he always treated me with respect and I don't recall him getting into knock down drag outs with others.

    If anything maybe he decided to leave and asked Jeff to delete his posts?

    I have almost zero motivation to post on this website, but I did state commitment some years ago that I will be posting various insights I had on things. I was hoping to enter a "formative writing period" and have a formative affect on the people here (though I believe something like a third of the people here to be perverts, others bourgeois (and perverts), morally inept, etc, etc, I could still help them), but Sam, and I'm sorry to say this to you, could provide that little "umph" at times that I needed to force myself to post on something that you couldn't. (And it was sort of on my to do list to post in that lesbian porn thread of his, oh well). Well if I do get to writing on things, hopefully it won't be in monologues, haha.

    This could be, but he tends to be civil on the forums, so I'll assume he will be that way in private mail as well. Though I suspect Admin has some level of respect for me, I will say this about him though...he has a history of easily deleting posters without any real thought in doing it. He's largely absent from the forums but still wants to regulate it, and a simple complaint, and the subsequent deletion of a person being complained about, provides him with a means of regulating the forums (of which I suspect some people have taken well advantage of, but who, I wouldn't know).

    The guy had close to 18,000 postings, had an account from 2008, and seemed civil on the forums (but overbearing on issues related to his ethnic background). But does posting history, account age, seeming civil, etc, ever actually matter?

    That one Posner guy was also deleted but he came back. If you can recall, they held somewhat similar views on Israel and Palestine (albeit Posner was more overbearing than GladiatorSam was), and both, if my memory is correct, have been posting close to a decade on this website. Perhaps the person or persons doing the complaining, and is ultimately behind the bannings/deletions of both, was someone or someones that had argued with them on Israel and Palestine?

    Not too long ago I read somewhere about how undercover Arab terrorists or spies are using things like twitter, facebook, and forums to send coded messages to their cohorts. They look like ordinary posts but they're using certain words in particular sequences that have meaning to their cohorts. We did the same thing with Radio Free Europe back in the cold war days for our spies behind the iron curtain and Britain did it during WWII with radio for their operatives in France.

    So maybe he was an Arab spy and the FBI informed realjock. What better camouflage than a gay site.

    Believe it or not, there's actually credible allegations that the current Director of the CIA is a Muslim, but won't want to admit it, which leads to the other allegation that he's a covert Muslim Brotherhood agent, but at the moment I'm going to give him the benefit of the doubt and not believe both allegations. But this video, prior to his senate confirmation may leave some food for thought:



    But if we are talking about existential threats, Russia hands down is that threat, and the US is losing badly in the "hybrid war" that's being waged (a war waged on social media, foreign spying and intelligence, the Olympics (100 athletes doped), propaganda, influencing each others elections, etc).

    His command of the English language was quite suspect. He said he graduated from an American university but I couldn't see how based on the grammar, sentence structure, etc. he used. His logic was also screwy. He often contradicted himself from one sentence to the next. I'd read his posts just for the giggles.

    Don't be so down on broken English (sarcasm), as people the world over have internalized broken English comments posted everywhere on the Internet for their own thoughts on matters, whether it ranges from things like who actually shot down MH17 to the presidential candidacy of Donald Trump...

    I'm far from being "down on broken English," in fact, I'm married to a guy whose first language isn't English. I just don't see how Sam could have graduated from an American university. I don't think he was who and what he said he was.

    A poster named Posner???? Do you mean Pouncer? That'd be great if that one was gone.

    MWolverine won't give up his lies and keep talking trash about Palestinian people that make Sam upset


    Cause he seems normal. When you make jokes about Jews, he reacts like a normal person would. He doesn't accuse you have being some sort of hate monger, like a normal person.

    Sam and the other weirdos, there has been a few, they spread falsehoods and argue irrationally.

    Example: Sam: "Bill Maher is a preacher of hate"

    Reality, Bill Maher is a t.v. host on HBO. Do you think HBO would have someone "preaching hate" every week for years? Especially in today's PC society. It doesn't pass the "rational thought" test. If that is your idea of preaching hate, then you live in a different reality.

    You are a moron. I remember reading his posts that he has two hearing aids. Maybe he speaks more than two languages at home?


    Ah, another juvenile name caller. If anyone's a moron it's you. What does having hearing aides have to do with his ability to write coherently and well enough to graduate from an American university like he said he did?
