    That's some funny sh|t. You should stick to comedy -- you're better at that that you are at computers.

    You argue the basics of putting the fire out and have actually called Ray Mccormacks speech dinosaur bravado, ect
    You should also work on your reading comprehension. (And, BTW, if the best thing you have to do with your time is dig through old posts you really ought to get a life as well.)

    And no, there is no chance I searched through your posts to find your IP, unbelievable.
    Then tell me what IP I'm posting from. Put up or shut up.

    Also, last night you must have been using an "elite" IP. For whatever reason, I could not see your IP.
    The reason you can't see my IP is that IPs aren't broadcast by the forum software unless you have (hacked) admin access. Keep shoveling, you're just digging your hole deeper.

    Ironsman, I'm not going to post an IP again. I have received a warning for doing this with deputymarshall's.
    Bullsh|t again, poseur.

    The Code is more what you'd call "guidelines" than actual rules.

      you're in the same category as deputymarshall and were called out as well in the thread where he challenged the FDIC speech.

      but thanks for the baseless opinion of me.
      I do not have lights. My state doesn't allow them. My old place did before I moved, however I didn't make threads talking about my flashing lights. Nice try though. And I do not even know what FDIC stands for, let alone whatever speech you're blabbing about. Why don't you post my IP address and show the world how special you are. I know you can't do it because you're lying. Prove me wrong.

      Even the burger-flippers at McDonald's probably have some McWackers.

        Guys we should all just stop wasting our time replying to this lying sack. Don't respond to him and just keep hitting the REPORT POST button on every one of his posts. He's obviously lying in order to start trouble and we don't need more of that here. Eventually he will go away or the webteam will do something about him.

          Guys, his posts are way above any level that Scarecrow could ever write. Your giving scarecrow way too much credit.
          "This thread is being closed as it is off-topic and not related to the fire industry." - Isn't that what the Off Duty forum was for?

            HAHAHA I guess the webteam doesn't buy his BS either. He was the one reporting me now he's the one that is banned. Karma is a SOB.
            I can't believe they actually pay me to do this!!!

            One friend noted yesterday that a fire officer only carries a flashlight, sometimes prompting grumbling from firefighters who have to lug tools and hoses.
            "The old saying is you never know how heavy that flashlight can become," the friend said.

              Excellent! I know I reported his activity, not sure how many others did. I'm glad they did something to stop his disruptive behavior.
