Default Where's Garett???

Last posted 3/29/12??? Not like him to go without this long???

Did he ...

1) Join the "preppers" and go underground?
2) Go to work for the NRA?
3) Get arrested by the cops?
4) Building an ark in his shop?
5) "Sampled" too much of that stuff he's growing out back?
6) Combo of any of the above?

We miss you, man - come back hea'!

Regards,

He has not PM'd me or kept me informed and frankly I'm hurt. He knows my birthday was April 2nd and I didn't get a card.

Seriously, I hope all is well with Garrett.

He might be coming down to hunt me down. I owe him 30 dollas and forgot to send the Fed Ex before my last trip!

Yeah, noticed that, too. I think he was having health issues, he posted something about pain meds awhile back.

I thought maybe he was a victim of that skin tag thread. Somebody had to be!

He was talking about a mod.^^

Ouch. Is it a temp ban or permanent?

Quitting smoking had the boy on edge. I hope it works out for him.

Sadly, Garett has been banned. The banning was a result of his anger over the addition of the Sports Forum to the site. I truly tried to make peace with the man, but the more PM's we exchanged, the worse it got. When he started posting his responses in the public forums, I warned him several times, but to no avail.

As a result, I had no choice but to ban him, which was not something I wanted to do. He was a long time member with many colorful stories. The ban is permanent at this time, but is negotiable. He has not appealed the decision or communicated in any form.

sounds like he needs a break from the internet for a while. some folks take this place and their percieved roles a bit to seriously.

A sports forum of all things. Strange thing to get your dander up over.

He's Canadian, e.g. has French blood in him. Those frogs can be so emotional sometimes.
