Root, if you or whoever keep posting the vulgar, offensive, disgusting nonsense you've been doing,It will continue to be removed.
If you you and whoever choose to continue with your shenanegans, it will cause these corrupted forums to be closed.
Your choice pal.

Shenanigans are coming from that end not this one. I looked over this forum earlier and checked back just moment ago. What was found? Flatulent verbiage.

So , Root once again commits all sorts of really fraudulent, offensive, disruptive, and blatantly stupid acts...

He adopts another's screen name multiple times, pretending to be the person using that name,
In pretending to be someone else, he posts gross vulgarity to make it appear to be the work of the person he's pretending to be.
He clones several other screen names and adds their fake locales, then posts disgusting comments on them as well as his own.
He then pretends he has been hacked for 7 years and has just returned to the discussion, finding it full of nasty stuff.
He has accusatory conversations between himself and those cloned names he created.
His vulgar posts are universally removed by site administrators because they're violations of the site code of conduct.

And the he blames someone else for all of his shenanigans!!

All I would like to know is " How does this character get away with it?"

Root needs to admit his misdeeds and apologize.

All through his latest low life shenanigans, he overlooked one very important fact

"Fortunatly, there are laws in Canada which restrict internet providers and their customers from doing the kinds of things Root's been doing---ie, posting from fake locations anonymously, cloning screen names, pretending to be a Canadian posting in the USA, etc.
We are allowed one internet portal only.
Violators face fines for infractions."

Hate to tell you Root, but we aren't the ones doing your nonsense, simply because by law we cannot do the things you're doing.

Agree.
For once in his life, he should stand up and be accountable.

When you slip into that bubbly delight tonight and relinquish your control to Calgon, remember this; things aren’t always what they seem. Now give me the exact size of your clown shoe and I will send you a new pair, on the house.

There's only one person I know of who uses the expression "clown shoes".
If I'm correct in assuming who that person is, then the hoax that's been done here is monumental.
Mind you, it would merely confirm that the hoaxer himself is more than a little wierd.
At the very least, I have some consolation in knowing I've played it straight all along.

The only monumental hoax around here is the Volt.

Volt is neither a joke, nor a monumental hoax.
It's a car, a car which is extremely well designed, and a car which portends a technology well beyond what we've been fed by automakers in the past.
That said, in my opinion the Volt has both strengths and weaknesses--there are things I like about it, and other things which I think could be improved.
It's not perfect, but what car is? Nevertheless it's a pretty darn good product for its purpose.
I like the technology, the extended range feature, the fit, finish, and interior features. Of course, one can't dispute the economy it delivers either. It's standout in that regard.
Things which concern me are first, the price. It's true that it'll take 5 to 7 years to amortize that price against an economical gas engined vehicle. I'm also concerned about a couple of other issues--charging facilities are few and far between yet; the rear seat is too small; and regardless of what's been said here the battery will need replacing at some point and that's costly.
There you have it--my sentiments, briefly and succinctly. I haven't gone into a lot of detail, and could have, but too keep this short, I've just touched highlights.
Those of you who will now have a hissy fit and call me all kinds of nasty names are free to do so.
Nevertheless that's my take whether you agree or not.

I don't "hate" Volt. Never did.
Would I buy one?
Not yet. Perhaps in a year or two, as a second "around town" vehicle.
When GM gets costs down (and they eventually will), that will be a good reason to reconsider.

Why you would fall off a couch is a surprise.
In spite of all the controversy about me being here, I've always talked the same language throughout about Volt. Pros and cons, nothing more, nothing less.
If you or anyone else can prove different, I would welcome hearing about it.

In the meantime, do you have anything to confess about "clown shoes"?

To find you not talking about the Volt is easy. The reference to clown shoes was in response to your numerous postings and how wrong they are.

Clown Shoes:
Something that is ridiculous in its appearance or existence.
Bullshit; something blatantly stupid.
Something or someone that is a total joke.

His latest comments tend to confirm weird.

So I’ll take the bait. Who is “the only one person I know of who uses the expression "clown shoes".” If you can give me that piece of your puzzle maybe we can go on to the next piece.
