I found this thread highly educational. I will state this once, very clearly. I like Tango, I disliked the diorama he posted and I thought the artist wasted their talents on tasteless, offensive tripe.
That being said, it is the splashes of true colors of the personalities on this board that I find the most off putting. I am saddened and a bit sickened to have been part of this community for so long. For the few of you who are not Deleted by Moderator, fair thee well, you will be missed. I am sure I will not be. After thirteen years with you lot, I am done with you and will not be returning under any condition that I could currently imagine.
Signing off.

Did I miss something?

I think this is a bit of an overreaction to the referenced thread. Tango posted something generally considered offensive and was DH'd; there was some debate over intent; Tango served his time; the earth continued to rotate.

The end.

This could have all been avoided if he stopped and thought a bit about anything he posts. Especially that thing.

I'm still not clear what the OP is ranting against.

Did someone say something?

I'm still not clear what the OP is ranting against.

No idea, since the situation was handled (for TMP) with the least fuss I've seen.

I commented on the thread that we hadn't had a mass walkout, mass dawghousings etc, but I guess that had to be at least one walkout.

Cacique Caribe28 Sep 2017 1:03 a.m. PST

Lol. Who knows?

He might have come across the thread rather late, and simply didn't like what he read. I wonder if he ever got to the end of the thread before blowing his top.

Oh well. If the man wants to leave, we can't force him to stay.

If that is all the reason you need to leave, by all means, do.

Dynaman878928 Sep 2017 2:27 a.m. PST

I hope "The Bug" didn't hit him in the posterior on the way out.

Cacique Caribe28 Sep 2017 2:47 a.m. PST

Lol. I took a peek just now and it looks like that thread is still going on. Almost 8300 hits and with loads of deleted comments all over the place.

I thought that by now people would have realized that no one has really been listening to each other. He's right about one thing, it was very revealing. Definitely not our best moment.

PS. But even though I stopped looking at the thread after Tango was free a few days ago, I'm still trying hard to wash off the smell of all the feces flinging that took place there. Geesh.

This issue has already been put to bed, so why are you bringing it up again?

Personal logo The Beast Rampant Supporting Member of TMP28 Sep 2017 5:41 a.m. PST

I apparently didn't read down far enough. But then, two pages was quite enough. If you're going to be thin-skinned, why go past that, anyway? When anything divisive gets dragged out that far, no good will come of it. Follow along, and you're just looking for trouble.

LostPict Supporting Member of TMP28 Sep 2017 5:50 a.m. PST

Montaguse & Capulets, Hatfields & McCoys, Star Trek & Star Wars, it all leads to heartbreak and virtual graveyards in the end. ;-)

Somehow I'm not sure "The Warrior Spirit" is exactly the nom de plume you are wanting. Perhaps "Die Dramakonigin" would be more apt?

CorroPredo28 Sep 2017 8:11 a.m. PST

Are you expecting a flurry of "oh please,please, don't go!"??? I expect you'll be disappointed….

Cacique Caribe28 Sep 2017 8:23 a.m. PST

Gone Fishing

You are absolutely right. Who would end their note with "Warrior" anything just as they're about to retreat or just plain scurry away? Lol


Oberlindes Sol LIC Supporting Member of TMP28 Sep 2017 8:52 a.m. PST

I've always wondered about the OP's user name. It's been many years since I studied German, but I am not sure that it means what he thinks it means. Krieg, for example, means war, not warrior.

MajorB28 Sep 2017 10:20 a.m. PST

After thirteen years with you lot, I am done with you and will not be returning under any condition that I could currently imagine.

So long, and thanks for all the fish.

I have noticed this tendency in other groups as well: Someone decides they must leave the group over some moral failing by the group.

They cannot just stop reading the page and abandon it, they must make a Grand Dramatic Gesture and lecture the group before they go.

As often as not, they never actually go.

If you must go, just go. Delete the link and be happy.

Cacique Caribe28 Sep 2017 10:39 a.m. PST

Gisby: "As often as not, they never actually go. If you must go, just go. Delete the link and be happy."

Maybe they could move to Canada? :)

Tango posted something generally considered offensive and was DH'd

Well I just checked the Dawghouse and he not there and I check it yesterday as well and he wasn't in it there either.

So what thread did I miss and well I rarely find anything offensive.

Mithmee Supporting Member of TMP28 Sep 2017 11:40 a.m. PST

Okay earlier this month and I think I know just which diorama this is about.

Which if it is the same one it was posted years ago on here.

Though there are some who think that they are not living in the real world where far worst things are happening each and every day.

I had no issues with the diorama back then and still don't today, because I do live in the real world and know that far greater evil is happening.

I'm still not clear what the OP is ranting against.

I think he was offended that not everyone else was as offended as he was.

Ghostrunner29 Sep 2017 8:23 a.m. PST

Cacique Caribe29 Sep 2017 11:36 a.m. PST

Bill: "I think he was offended that not everyone else was as offended as he was."

Lol. Was he expecting a massive exodus?


dapeters29 Sep 2017 12:10 p.m. PST

I think he quit because most of the illustrious poster here did not quite see the real problem much less the bigger issue.

altfritz29 Sep 2017 1:20 p.m. PST

So where does one find this offending post? Enquiring minds want to know?

Cacique Caribe29 Sep 2017 1:22 p.m. PST


Ha! Good try. I guess you didn't read (or choose to listen to) the explanation he gave after he came out of the DH, or anything we really said on both sides?

PS. By the way, Tango01 has somehow been put back in the DH again. So what was his huge crime this time? Because there isn't even a link to this great "plagiarism" infraction. Did he forget to type something with quotation marks? He didn't even know about the new DH sentence until a few minutes ago when I reached out to him about it. He is just as baffled. And, once again, no one reached out to let him know there was a concern.

This new complaint against him (we don't know, because there's no link back to the crime) might actually shed some light on why he was attacked so fiercely by his longtime haters on the diorama thread. It was really meant to "make him pay for his past mistakes", as one of you trigger happy guys put it so eloquently back then.

Earl of the North29 Sep 2017 1:51 p.m. PST

I saw Tango was back in the DH, seems like there is a lack of info on what he is in for this time.

So will we be using a new topic or reusing the old one?

Cacique Caribe29 Sep 2017 2:02 p.m. PST


The topic (aka the evidence) was likely deleted. But he wasn't even told about it or asked for an explanation. He is reaching out to the Editors right now to see what it is he did that was so evil so as to merit a 5-day DH (and a stealth one at that).

Of course the reason for it doesn't really matter to the handful who led the last lynch mob against he-who-posts-more-than-they'd-like. They are probably throwing a party right now.

PS. How would any one of YOU guys here like to be thrown into the DH without any notice whatsoever, or any chance for defense or explanation, with the evidence deleted, and for FIVE DAYS? What would you learn from the punishment when you don't even know what you did and where?

Earl of the North30 Sep 2017 12:24 a.m. PST

Well I was recently DH for a week without any notice for not being a paying member…..which I will agree was annoying at the time.

I would like an explanation from Bill (or another Editor) as to what Tango's crime was here.

Personally I feel no joy when Tango is DH, I just couldn't support an amnesty due to the facts of his last DH. This one seems strange since I don't think I've read a Tango topic where he isn't highlighting someone else's work.

Edit: Oh I see he posted his usual quote/pic but forgot to include a link to the original site, seems like something that could have been handled with a PM rather than a DH.

So I'm supporting a call for amnesty on this one.

MajorB30 Sep 2017 5:41 a.m. PST

I would like an explanation from Bill (or another Editor) as to what Tango's crime was here.

He quoted a chunk of stuff from somewhere elase without giving any attribution. That's plagiarism. He's done the same thing several times before.

Lion in the Stars30 Sep 2017 9:21 p.m. PST

While Tango has, early when he started posting here, been guilty of not quoting and providing sources of where he finds stuff, for the last several years his topics have included the source(s) where he found things.

So I would be willing to believe that this was a mistake, not a deliberate plagiarism.

As to his posting a pic that I haven't seen because the entire thread got nuked, well, can't comment.

As far as 'stealth' DHings go, I have NEVER been told I've been DH'd here (whether by PM or by email), I have always gone to post and found I'd been DH'd (the few times it's happened to me). Zero warnings, though I have gotten a PM from Bill about my use of 'wog' in the old line about Calais after he DH'd me.

badger22 Inactive Member02 Oct 2017 6:13 a.m. PST

Only thng about this is how many times I have seen people post something and forget the link. No DHing, just comments and then the link gets added. seems perhaps some are less equal than others.


Lion in the Stars02 Oct 2017 10:33 a.m. PST

I think part of the problem is that Tango had (past tense) a really bad problem with that when he first showed up.

Lots of cool finds, not necessarily with a link.

But he's been really good about including links to where he found things for at least 2 years now.

LoudNinjaGames Inactive Member06 Dec 2017 7:59 a.m. PST

Honestly, I don't understand why he was DH in the first place. Why not just remove the post. DH seems awfully heavy handed.


Tango01 Supporting Member of TMP In the TMP Dawghouse06 Dec 2017 10:10 a.m. PST

Well… I prefer that to end in "Conversation with Gwen"… (smile)


Twoball Cane15 Dec 2017 10:35 a.m. PST

Tango is a cornerstone here.. he contributes so much to this site. I dont think he posts things with mean intent….Occasionally a gaff… like when he posts a release someone just did before…that is minor….i am glad he is free.

I don't know what happened …but DH time is served if the boss says so.

Smile !
