  • Purple Hydrant Award

    What constitutes a purple hydrant recipient?

    I believe a few of the recipients here have earned it by getting suspended from the forums for certain unmentioned behavior.

      That would be correct. Anyone who has been "terminated" by the webteam, and then reinstated...is eligible for the award.

                    Sorry...that's classified information!

                    And you have to be more specific for most of us, because once just ain't enough for us! LOL

                      We can not say because we would be repeating things that we got booted for.... Are you confused now???

                        So you could tell us, but you'd have to kill YOURSELF?

                          Gonzo,
                          I believe Kiwi is a purple hydrant recipient.

                          As for myself I am making every effort to not get booted. But Hey you never know.

                            My brother from the Niagara Falls area has jostled my memory.

                            My inadvertent omission of the only known airborne version of a flightless bird has been rectified!

                            Sorry, Ian

                              Well Crap!!! MY MISTAKE!!!

                              MY BAD!!! I thought the purple hydrant was for disciplinary action as far as anything was concerned... I therefore had it in my signiature because during my newbie days I tended to **** the chief off a little too much!!!

                              Four years and a few suspensions later... I think I've learned my lesson... ahh well... I shall removeth it if you deem to be necessary cap'n!
