    I saw that. You'd think gordon would offer some explanation to the rest of the board. Not him. He just goes about his business like nothing happened...and why not? He must of figured that the timid cult members wouldn't say a word...and he was right. I'd say this was another abuse of power but then he'd lie and say it was Weak Wizard who reduced the suspension.

    This corrupt hypocrite is devoid of any character or integrity. He's giving Beach Bum Blabs a run for the money. Now we know why Weak Wizard "hired" him.

    Honestly, Gordon before becoming Admin and after becoming Admin are like night and day. Normal Member Gordon was so humble and normal. Admin Gordon seems power hungry and devious... Wow...

    I don't like how Gordon changed for the worse after becoming Admin. He was so humble and normal before becoming Admin.. Sad really.

    Should mods really be allowed to suspend themselves over at WoV? It's just another misguided, pathetic attempt to seek attention and it never ends well. Instead of looking like someone who is subject to the same rules as everyone else...gordon comes off like an arrogant oaf who thinks he's better than anyone else.

    Why do the new mods feel the need to post in every thread no matter their knowledge or lack thereof? It's annoying when they blather on with nothing of substance to say. A mature, responsible mod is one who strikes a balance...not one who tries to add to his post count. I guess that's what you get when you work for a guy who calls himself the DICKtator.

    It seems that Gordon has let Admin Power go to his head. So sad. I'd never in a million years think Gordon would have turned out so narcissistic. A complete 180 from the humble, mature, normal, and low key Poster he was before becoming Admin.

    Good points Freddy and Karen. BUT at least WOV make it known who is in the position of power and who is not.

    Unlike certain forums that allow favorite posters run the forum.

    I have a hard time believing you really remember how FlashGordonLightfoot was, before becoming one of Rusty's unpaid thankless minions. He was pretty forgettable for the most part, barely a Tier 2 poster at best. You aren't very good at paying attention to details or forum personalities of posters in general. I can probably come up with 50 posters that are more memorable then old Flash. Next thing you will say, is how great and MATURE no name irrelevant Herr Dieter was before becoming a Shank patsy.

    Gordonm888 on WoV March 16, 2015. Thread..."Calling All APs." Gordy asks: "What does the acronym AP mean when used in this forum?"

    Gee I don't know, gordy. Double AmPutee?

    There goes everyone's raison d' etre. EvenBob/Spike has resigned from WoV over his last suspension. Does anyone miss him? It doesn't seem so. Poor Spike. Not to worry...he's alive and well on the Diversity Tomorrow site. He's over there posting with abandon...183 posts this month and it's only the 18th. Can one of the math geeks break that down?

    That's one less Mensa member on WoV now. That's right...Spike said he was in Mensa but quit. He can't talk about gambling on DT. That shouldn't be difficult...he never talked about it on WoV.

    By the way...Weak Wizard is getting some negative comments from members that he never expected. I still don't think he gets it. Chan needs to cut his losses and get rid of him.

    The best option for Chan, Zuga et al is to give Rusty Shackleford a blast from the past. Put a KICK ME sign on his back, give him an atomic wedgie and boot his skinny arse onto the street. Give him the ultimate door prize. Rusty would be petrified, reliving his traumatic childhood once again 40+ years later. That would be priceless and well deserved.

    When WoV was sold 7 years ago the deal was that Weak Wizard would stay on and write articles. I'm sure this was handled by the attorneys so, absent the details, they could be stuck with him. Is he earning his keep? Hardly...unless you call dragging the site down the toilet earning his keep. Also down the toilet is his integrity and dignity. Yes, he got $2 million out of them but we don't have any idea how that was or is paid out. Was it lump sum or doled out piecemeal?

    From a Sept 2014 article: "The Wizard of Odds, Michael Shackleford, will stay on as a full time writer and advisor working closely with the new owners." A couple of weeks before the sale, Weak Wizard was begging the forum members for money. Anyone remember? It's been 7 years...he may well be broke again.

    Did anyone not see the permanent banning of redietz on WoV coming? Threatening a mod? On another forum? Come on. Poor gordy can dish it out but he can't take it. There was no threat. Weak Wizard knows it, gordo knows it and so does anyone who has followed this nonsense. No...this is just another weak attempt by a weak little man to interpret something to fit his agenda. So what's really going on?

    Redietz isn't afraid of the weak one and that doesn't sit well with him. You see...everyone must walk on eggshells over there and bow down to Herr DICKtator. If one does not...the neurotic man boy becomes very insecure. Another reason is that redietz is no doubt more successful than the weak one when it comes to betting. That must sting. Ouch!

    The comment on the suspension: "I don't really care, but if it was gordo I'm going to have to pay him a visit on principle." Notice he only said gordon. Why? A while back I mentioned that gordon lived in a certain city. As it turns out...both gordo and redietz reside in the same state. In fact redietz mentioned earlier something about meeting gordon for lunch. That's it. No threat...just a couple of guy who live a couple of hours apart who could possibly meet in the middle. Finally...is a guy who uses his own name and location really going to threaten someone on a stupid forum?

    Man up, gordo. Daddy Wizard can't fight your battles. Maybe if you paid him...

    As of right now... SIX Popular Contributors who posted recently are banned or Suspended or walked off.

    1. Wellbush. Suspended and then nuked.

    2. Redietz. Suspended and then nuked.

    3. Billryan. Suspended.
    4. Axelwolf. Suspended.
    5. Kewlj. Walked off. Not surprising as he has and still does have problems with how WOV is run nowadays.
    6. EvenBob. Walked off(This walk off is REALLY shocking as Evenbob was the Top Poster at WOV and seemed to enjoy being at WOV.

    Wow, SIX recent Popular Contributors at WOV are at this very moment either completely gone or are technically gone. WOV REALLY played their cards right on this one and this isn't a -EV at all, not even a little bit.

    I'm certainly no fan of EvenBob/Spike...in fact I thought he was a jerk from way back. Having said that...the suspension by Herr Dieter was one of the most flagrant abuses of power by a mod in years. Spike did absolutely nothing wrong. If you go through today's posts, or any day's posts, you will find quotes shortened for ease and relevance. It's the smart and thoughtful thing to do and everyone does it. There was no offense...not even close.

    The members are speaking out...maybe not for Spike, but for the stink that is permeating "Mike's house." These are some 'good' members...respected members and they don't like what they are seeing. Since Dieter loves to bask in his suspensions and go on and on pounding his chest...what did he have to say about singlehandedly driving the top poster off the forum? Nothing. He decides to hide holding his hands in front of his face. We can still see you Dumb Dieter.

    I'm sure many are saying that EB/Spike got what he deserved for everything he has pulled over the years but that's not how it's supposed to work. It will be that way until the owners of LCB wise up and realize what laughing stocks they are...compliments of Weak Wizard.

    As far as announcing that you're quitting the forum...I cringe when I see that. Don't do it. Just stop posting. Old Spike would have gotten a lot more mileage out of it had he done that. This may be a first. He actually started a thread to say he was leaving. Funny thing is he started the thread while he still had 2 days to serve on his suspension. How do you think that happened? Must be nice.

    Schadenfreude, Spikey. Schadenfreude.

    But you are still there as STARBURGER, which shows how you lied about still playing the sock game. I do give you credit for making a fool of them.

    Who knows, maybe you are missing some appendages and Gordo has taken a liking to you.

    At the time, Ahigh was also Suspended. I forgot to mention that. Ahigh is also a Popular Contributor, so it was actually 7 Popular Contributors out of Commission....

    It's not uncommon for Weak Wizards misfits to come to other boards to defend their hero. I'm not convinced that it's the real gordo since he has yet to make a post. Either way it will be fun if he does post. If it is the real gordo...he probably went running back to Daddy Wizard after the welcome that Mickey gave him. Daddy Wizard....Mikey insulted me. Can you suspend him?

    RE Dietz: If gordo nuked me or whatever, I have no issue with that. Good for him. It was a pain for me to post at WoV when I had to restrain my disdain for the place in just about everything I wrote. Restrain my disdain -- that should be a rap lyric.

    But I do have one personal issue with gordo. That post of his where he says if he won a big chunk of money, he wanted to have sex with double amputees. I have an issue with that. That is creepy. I read that thing over and over, and I really got no vibe from it that he was being humorous. Yet he and other mods were making judgements about people posting mild jokes about folks, and the mods treated them as huge insults.

    Well, saying you want to have sex with double amputees goes right through me. It makes me cringe. One side of my family was wiped out by MS, and they each spent their final 10-12 years as quadriplegics. But they were at home as fully functioning household members, helping to run the households and making decisions. So when somebody does that creepy power trip sex-with-the-helpless comment, it really, really bothers me. Makes me want to take a hacksaw to their legs until they're double amputees themselves.

    Taters says: Excellent post. The last sentence might be a little extreme. But verbally stated in public would be worth a pop in the chops.

    Forums represent the guilty until proven innocent. Protect the nose and anything goes. NO?

    Sorry to hear of your family members struggles.
