I shall not come out of the dawghouse.

I am very sorry and unhappy that so many of my friends have suffered such ire for merely supporting me. I am sure that whatever they said in a paroxysm of emotion.

I do not Know what Cacique Caribe has said, but I plead mercy for him because what he said was done in friendship. Please unlock him.

As for my self I was dawghoused for five days and I shall not come out. Therefore. you Bill, may re-dawghouse me for the remaining four days of my sentence, or for another whole full sentence, or for a month or till Kingdom Come for that matter.

I said to those friends who contacted me privately the following.

I clearly meant to attack Winston -- the motive was in my heart. There is no misunderstand as I found Winston's post egregious, insulting and spiteful, and not to me, but to Tango. I felt the charge was totally unjust to Tango and, as Tango is still in the dawghouse, I determine to go back and join him. If he could contact me at maybe we can get up a nice game of chess.

There is no misunderstanding. Winston Smith and I mutually detest each other and each has been well informed by common friends of the others attitude. This is a fact of life.

Nevertheless the rules are the rules and I do not expect to be exempted from them. I am not sorry for what I did. One is called upon in life to suffer for ones opinions and stand up for ones friends. and suffering for the sake of right is not a shame but an honor. Especially is suffering for ones friends.

There is no need for Winston to share my incarceration or plead for me. There is no need for him to do this. I can only feel several friends have been punished for my sake and there fore I shall accept the sentence.

If Winston wishes to alter the present relationship then so be it. Anything in this world is possible. I come on here to talk about war games, listen to new ideas and occasionally have a good nock-down drag out with McLaddie and others. However I am a despicable soul, a vile person. I defend my friends, and I speak when I think a wrong has been done, and worst of all those who attack my country and faith push buttons that engage my passions. These are passions on which I have no "safteys"

So do what you wish Bill. I reject my ejection from the Dawghouse and will sequester myself from TMP for the five days, or however many you may wish to lock me out for.

I do, before going ask mercy on Cacique Caribe. I shall be back in a four days or whenever.

Otto, I don't detest you, but you do amuse me.
Have a nice day.

PS. I can't imagine who these "mutual friends" might be. Nobody has conveyed to me your detestation of me. I have told a few who are acquainted with you what I think of you, but I don't consider them the type to carry tales back and forth. I could be wrong.

PPS. BTW, who here has attacked your country and your faith?

Tell you what. You stay away from AWI and TSATF, and I'll avoid the Boobies Board.

Now I feel like the guy who just won't shut up.

Hafen von Schlockenberg01 Oct 2017 9:32 p.m. PST

Oh lord,you just made me have a vision of an "AWI,TSATF,and Boobies" board.

Time for a lie down.

We are talking about inconsequential spats on a Wargames forum here, aren't we? Just checking.

Please carry on with the entertainment.

Nothing more important to some than playing with toy soldiers.

Otto, Well at least I'm glad to see you have the option to get out of the DH. But I understand where you are coming from … thumbs up

Nothing more important to some than playing with toy soldiers.
I've been saying the same for over a year or so. The site is about grown men playing with toys … period. But yet … well …

Hafen, we generally call that last the "Nude and Semi-nude Figures Board," but I'm open to the name change. It would be more accurate anyway.

CorroPredo02 Oct 2017 6:10 a.m. PST

Yes, I personally would like to hear why Cacique Caribe got the axe. He and I have our opinion on it, maybe Dear Editor can dispell that.

cloudcaptain02 Oct 2017 6:16 a.m. PST

See…now there needs to be a TSATB supplement.

Legion 402 Oct 2017 6:19 a.m. PST

Seems Cacique is locked out but the "moderator" would like it if he contacted them. For a "sit down":

No – Account Temporarily Locked, please contact a moderator

"Loose Files & Flamin' Boobies"?

Winston Smith Supporting Member of TMP02 Oct 2017 6:35 a.m. PST

To me, it will always be the "Needs More Boobies" board.
That's what it used to be called.

CorroPredo02 Oct 2017 7:01 a.m. PST

I saw that Legion, but it doesn't explain anything.

Winston Smith Supporting Member of TMP02 Oct 2017 7:03 a.m. PST

Again, some are thinking that the audience deserves an explanation. Only the alleged perpetrator does.

Legion 402 Oct 2017 7:12 a.m. PST

Corro … I'm in contact with Carique … So we'll have to wait and see if he contacts Bill. And they work it out ? Bill sometimes does that … he's done that a few of times before.

And yes, we don't know why Carique was temporarily locked out. We may never know. Again, we'll have to wait and see. I'd very much like to see him back …

CorroPredo02 Oct 2017 7:46 a.m. PST

Thanks, Legion.

tookey23 Inactive Member02 Oct 2017 10:50 a.m. PST

Is he trying to win an Oscar ?

Winston Smith Supporting Member of TMP02 Oct 2017 10:55 a.m. PST

He's playing Achilles, method acting.

Legion 402 Oct 2017 12:31 p.m. PST

Glad to help Corro ! And yes, again, I'd like to see him back …

Stepman3 Inactive Member02 Oct 2017 12:35 p.m. PST

I want Otto to detest me…

I think you have to take a ticket & then stand in line….

PrivateSnafu02 Oct 2017 9:23 p.m. PST

Tango's Peepshow is the obvious choice.

jdginaz03 Oct 2017 12:42 a.m. PST

Read CC's thread it's pretty obvious why he was locked out, well to me it's obvious.


Garth in the Park Inactive Member07 Oct 2017 8:49 a.m. PST

Wasn't the Biblical Lazarus dead for three days? Otto didn't manage to stay in the ground for one!

Legion 407 Oct 2017 10:25 a.m. PST

Actually I think he was on vacation … Otto … not Lararus … wink
