Discuss and talk about any general topic.

Moderators: jamesbond, fschmidt

Should Odbo be allowed to return to the forum?

Yes. He is funny and brilliant. Forgive his rash behavior. This forum isn't the same without him.

No. He is a wacko and racist and contributes nothing useful to this forum. We are better off without his vulgar rantings.

Does anyone want Odbo back? Should we give him another chance?

Rock misses him a lot for some reason, and has an affinity for unusual wackos. lol

Oh, hell no! Ever since I banned him, look at how many new members we got! Plus, many of the old posters came back to the forum. Why bring him back and ruin things again?

New member come and go. Always have always will.

Me for one. He was not the only, but he is part of my reasons to post here. Personal life and time constraints pretty soon will be the only reasons I stop posting regularly. More clients and family making basically.

Why dont you guys make an uncensored room for all the trash stuff? Oh yeah you do have the NSFW room. Let him and other guys like him hang out in there instead.

Change the name of your NSFW forum and call it something like "Anything Goes"/NSFW and take off that "hidden" crap, that probably makes guys not want to post there. Indexing is your business only, not the forum posters. Also mark it as an unmoderated forum except for spammers and scammers, etc.

ErikHeaven, Repatriate, JamesSa, OutWest--just to name a few. Some Black members like Kai have PM'd me saying they will no longer post on HappierAbroad if Odbo is allowed to come back in the forum. Also, Ladislav is not very keen on him returning either. Many people had previously left the forum because of the infighting caused by members like Odbo and the like. Since I've banned him and some of the other troublesome members of the forum, things have really improved in my opinion. I'm the one that has been sending PM to old members to come back to the forum. Seems like it's working, so far.

The Odbo/Cornfed characters should always be banned. They serve no purpose here. I renewed my purpose to leave and stay gone. These haters are just rabid trolls or demons that should be banished to the likes of Stormfront. They belong there not here.

I kind of miss Odbo. He was right, my oggling of women did get me into trouble.

Maybe I should become a monk. Well I'm in the right country for it.

I don't know who this Odbo guy is, but Cornfed was definitely a douche.

When I was a mod I never banned ODBO simply because he was hilariously funny for brief moments even though he was a piece of shit 90% of the time. I say let him on but attach a warning profile to every post of his. He's obviously deranged but he has some weird talent.

Umm, the irony is, Odbo even asked me for advice about the best way to harass Xiongmao via PM (which I found to be out of the blue and confusing). This was right after he harassed me like crazy about chunky overweight Latinas. He also sent me some bizarre porn. :lol:

But I do miss his posts. He's got a certain kind of eccentric genius talent.

Well I guess the decision here is between appeasing a few members here who found Odbo entertaining vs. losing a number of members here who left because of him.

I think the latter is more important don't you? I guess it's best not to let him back then.
