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

LOL

OK make Odbo the mod for a day. Or no, maybe his own NSFW section.


Or just the Odbo forum, where members can go in and chat with him at their own risk.

I have mixed feelings about bringing Odbo back. I'm sure it'd make the forum more interesting, but it's like letting a wild troublesome wildcat out of the cage. lol

Anyway, since:

1) The poll results show that the majority want him back.

2) Most of the members who protested against him are no longer posting.

I figured we should give him another chance and bring him back for a probation period. So I will now unban Odbo, and his IP if banned, and notify him about it.

Those of you who don't like his postings are free to put him on Ignore by clicking the Ignore button in his posts.

I will also unblock Odbo's ability to send PM's. Odbo, you will be on probation. Please refrain from personal attacks and insults. Thanks.

Anyway, let's keep our fingers crossed.

We can't do that because he refuses to be confined to one board. He participates where he likes and is like a wild wind which refuses to be restricted or confined.

Jeez, maybe if we can just get the guy LAID, he'll simmer down!

Odbo,
You've been unbanned! Where are you?

Are you too busy being happier abroad or being laid abroad to post now? lol

Maybe he forgot about us, since it's been so long. lol

Once you do that to your most brilliant poster you expect him to come back?

Hopefully he has found a nice site that can appreciate his talents for pointing out our societies obvious social problems.

Who you want on your forum (and topics of discussion) depends on what image you want to give to visitors.

Do you want to give visitors the image that this forum is about expat advocacy, or do you want them to read racial epithets and pending mass extinction of humans?

Hey dude you better come out of your dream world because you ain't running from this, either the human race grows up like now or it is check out time. Running from country to country will not save us from mother nature. The world is becoming a small place and options on where to hide will be very limited.

Maybe add a twist and ban zboy1 for a few weeks while during Odbo's next unbanning.


I believe this is a sensible, reasonable, and fair proposal. Odbo's insults were extremely entertaining as well as educational.

Why ban someone for fun, especially the moderator? That's an insane idea with no logical basis. This world is already insane enough. Don't add to it.

Banning people for fun would not look good at all, especially since we stand for free speech.

We are trying to be as logical, reasonable and fair as possible. Not psycho. Come on. Let's have some rationality here.

Odbo is still not back yet and he never opened my PM. I emailed him too. I just hope he's ok, even if he doesn't come back.

Oh well. Maybe it's all for the best.
