How do you unload a 2,000 lbs DNA Machine from your truck? Well, in Texas, we let our wife do it with a come-along!

I'm out of LMR again. I posted a comment stating I thought Mario had behaved poorly and I was told by RS they felt like I wasn't willing "to move forward". They deleted my post about Mario (the post wasn't about Mario) and they wanted me to remove the post I wrote in the Parallax Robotics Forum describing what happened to LMR.

I personally thought my version of the story very tame considering what happened.

It seems like they want to sweep the whole incident under the rug.

A lot of people were wondering what the heck happened to LMR and I didn't feel right about deleting the Parallax post. I told LMR I no longer wished to be a member. So I was not banned or blocked. I left on my own.

I thought the email telling me they closed my membership very polite.

I'm sad this has happened to LMR. It was an amazing place. I think it could have been a different kind of amazing place with the new "family friendly" rules but they managed to infuriate many of the members who weren't opposed to the new rules.

Another thought that didn't fit in my above rant:
I don't think it's the obligation of the party who was wronged to "move forward". I think I was willing to "move forward" but I thought it fair to grumble a bit as I did so. I especially felt some grumbling was fair since Mario had posted a "time to move forward" type statement which I felt minimized the problems his actions had caused for others. He said " we do apologize for the inconvenience caused." What he calls inconvenience, I call trama.

I'm an LMR refugee.
 
+RobotShop bought out my beloved +Let's Make Robots and are destroying a great community. They are silently banning long time members who are critical of them, censoring posts that are in any way negative towards Robotshop and destroying the fun and atmosphere that was LMR. Not only this, if you attempt to remove your posts from the site, they ban you, keeping your content. This is their way of keeping all your contributions, without having to keep you happy. If you are interested in robots, stay away from both sites, they are an embarrassment to the welcoming charm robotics sites should have.

Me: "I can't find my crystals...where the heck are they...?"
Bek: "Crystals? Into voodoo now?"
Me: "No, it's science!"
Bek stares skeptically
Me: "No, really, they create frequencies...blah, blah."
Bek: "Uh, huh. If you raise the dead you're not keeping them in the cellar."
Me: "That's fair."

Another excellent article from my favorite author!
Pencil Me In. Sometimes I get deep into the code closet, browsing around through old stuff, and forget all about the rest of the world. I lose all track of time, and the things that I needed to do at certain times. I'm still getting stuff accomplished, but it isn't on a schedule.
