  • The Dragoon

    Apperently the web gods have shut down another important thread so I find myself needing to intervine.......

    I don’t even know this kid or the situation and I want to knock his teeth through the back of his extra large dome piece!!
    I am actually quite sad that the last post got deleted because I thought I spoke quite eloquently. Ok kid here it goes..........AGAIN!!

    1) Spell check yourself if you want to be taken seriously

    2) Stop acting like a tough guy because it doesn’t scare us and you’re likely to get drilled

    3) A digital signature does not constitute you as a computer hacker and I feel you have watched Tron far too many times. Oh right, and bragging drops your credibility to zero.

    4) You preach about addressing issues with their sources and attack everyone about hiding behind their computers; what is it that you are doing differently?

    5) I volunteered for quite a few years and I don’t ever recall it paying my bills. I recall it changing my life and providing me with a huge network of advocates because I did what was asked of me and didn’t bitch.

    6) It sounds to me like you have 220 syndrome; you have been in for two months, you talk like its been twenty years, and you in fact know it all

    7) If you can’t spell Narcissistic, I doubt you know its true definition and please spare us its use.

    8) Stop preaching about family values because you are trashing the biggest one in existence

    9) If the forums don’t mean anything and they are a waste of time, why on Gods green earth did you start this in the first place?

    10) I think your posts just made me throw up in my mouth a little bit! Or maybe it’s that I have just wasted some of my own precious time responding to your misguided and sophomoric banter.

    I have a plethora of words in my vocabulary also, the only difference is that I fully understand their proper usage. Do your self a favor before your hole gets too deep and be gone. The fire service is not a job; it is a family and a lifestyle however I wouldn’t expect a rookie to truly understand that sentiment. If you have anything further constructive to add, please do so or don’t be afraid to arrange a face to face meeting so we can all stop hiding behind our computer screens and truly see who here is full of the brown stuff.

    With Deepest Regards and Sympathy for your misguided and jaded soul:

    Sparky

    P.S. hay look I didn't swear even once!!!

    Do I understand this correctly? This tool is 30 years old, a proffesional computer hacker and has no car? He responds on a bike? Are you kidding me? And he wants to be taken seriously? Does he still live with daddy?
    IAFF member, Love this job! Remember the oath!

        Keith, google the name I gave you and all will be revealed.

        At least this time the thread was just locked instead of deleted. That's a vast improvement.

        As for the poll question, no, he should absolutely not be removed from the system nor should his posts/threads be deleted. (Nor should Alex Yates and all his posts have been removed, IMHO.)

        Removing those sorts of posts just erases the evidence of their actions and allows them to deny them later. (It also makes it harder for web admins to track them if/when they come back under new names.)

        Frankly, I don't know why he was banned unless he sent something in a PM to warrant it. His behavior hasn't been the best but it's arguable that it's been no worse than others' at other times who have not been banned. It's not as if banning should be based on popularity (or a lack of it. ).

          Looks like our friend has been permanently removed from the system. I would not be surprised if we see him again under a new user name. Remember mejeersweetie (sp?) a few months ago? She must have had 4 of 5 new user names before she got the hint and left for good.

            Why do you have to be all intelligent like?

            You know deputy.............your absolutely right. Most things fade in time unless there is a constant reminder of a person’s indiscretion. Shame on me and my haste. I should have to revise my pole I think because this is one I don’t want to forget. I work very closely with these departments and certainly wouldn’t want to meet this person on the fire ground.

              Good point. A historical record of the various trolls, malcontents, whackers, #$%@ stirrers, and others could serve a useful purpose.

                Ok I posted a new thread in an attempt to convince the web team to bring back that deleted forum if you all want to go vote. If not, cool, not my buisness. I just really want to see how low he stooped.

                        Man! Miss a day, miss a lot.

                        I don’t have as much trouble with the personal attacks as I do the attacks on the FD. Seems to me Firehouse.com should not be in the business of spreading derogatory rumors about organizations (specially FDs). Bad enough if the poster can provide factual references to back up their story but the drivel that Kamono was spreading was over the top.

                        I think I also agree with Deputy, lock the thread and at least there's a record if the injured party needs it.

                          Check out the link everybody.... I think we can put a face with the name.

                          If it were not for Dad's BMW in the driveway, the snow, and homes which look like some of those I've seen in Newington I would think this could just be a mere coincidence.

                          Note to self... If planning to make a fool of one's self through an online forum and using a very unique online ID to do so, remove pictures of one's self from e-photoalbum prior to doing so.

                            You're not looking nearly hard enough.

                            The Dragoon apparently likes to blog and the subject matter of some of his blogs is both illuminating and disturbing to say the least. We've only seen the tip of the iceburg where "his" problems are concerned.

                              I still can't believe that he wants to sit there and bad mouth departments because he didn't fit in or because they declined him because they are worried about how he will respond to calls. I mean come on if you were a chief officer would you want to take the responcibility of having one of your members get hit by a car while on his bike responding to a call. I know I persoanlly wouldn't want that!
