I ask for mercy for Cacique Caribe.

Please unblock him.

I plead the intensity of feeling over the question of Tango's dawghousing, and his own concern for my own. Certainly you can afford to be magnanimous.

He is also too much of a man to mention it but remember, he has undergone with the recent hurricane not just loss of all his war gaming and hobby possessions, but almost all his possessions period! He must have been under extreme stress living in cramped temporary space, and not knowing what will become of his life. I also have no proof but suspect he has serious health issues. I know he would never bring this up, but I will.

Surely this must mitigate in some way whatever he has done.

AGREED !!!!!!!

Free CC!!

basileus66 Inactive Member04 Oct 2017 1:41 p.m. PST

What happened? Why has he been blocked?

Tango01 Supporting Member of TMP In the TMP Dawghouse04 Oct 2017 1:50 p.m. PST

It's not known why Cacique Caribe is in jail… agree with his release!!…

Otto show very good points!…


Ottoathome Inactive Member04 Oct 2017 1:51 p.m. PST

Bill shall have to enlighten yo on this basileus66

VCarter Supporting Member of TMP04 Oct 2017 1:51 p.m. PST

First time I've ever joined one of these threads (free anyone).

I agree as well.

CorroPredo04 Oct 2017 1:51 p.m. PST

Yes, bring CC back!

Earl of the North04 Oct 2017 1:57 p.m. PST

Check the recent free "insert name here" threads on the TMP Talk message board.

He has been strangely over the top in those recent topics, I'd assume the temporary blocking is a chance for him to calm him down before he goes to far.

I'd guess that his recent personal problems may be at the route of his recent behaviour and I hope we see a quick return since he posts some interesting stuff.

Also welcome back (again) Tango.

robert piepenbrink Supporting Member of TMP04 Oct 2017 1:58 p.m. PST

Agreed. CC is one of the gems of TMP, and has suffered flood damage in the bargain.

But I don't think anyone should be DH'd without a bill of particulars--what exactly they did, and what rule this violated.

Earl of the North04 Oct 2017 2:02 p.m. PST

Just to clarify having read some of the posts, Dan's account has been temporarily locked rather than him being dawghoused.

This is on his profile

Verified: No – Account Temporarily Locked, please contact a moderator

Which hopefully means we could be seeing him again soon.

War Panda04 Oct 2017 2:57 p.m. PST

He had most of his possessions destroyed???

We should start up a fund for the guy! He's one of the real gentlemen here in my opinion. So sorry to hear he's lost his wargaming gear too.

All the best CC !! …hope life is looking up for you

whitphoto04 Oct 2017 3:22 p.m. PST

Hunger strike!

You'll just have to take my word for it…

Winston Smith Supporting Member of TMP04 Oct 2017 4:04 p.m. PST

This is in the hands of Dan and the Editors. Period.
Why other people feel they are owed an explanation is beyond me.
If Dan feels like straightening things out, ball is in his court.

Charlie 12 Inactive Member04 Oct 2017 4:26 p.m. PST

+1 Winston….

Its between Dan and the Editors. And NO ONE ELSE….

Jeigheff Inactive Member04 Oct 2017 4:51 p.m. PST

Sure, it's none of my business. But I'll join the others: I like CC and would like to see him back.

princeman04 Oct 2017 5:11 p.m. PST

Please let Dan go!!

Personal logo Editor in Chief Bill The Editor of TMP Fezian04 Oct 2017 6:18 p.m. PST

Editor Gwen is communicating with Cacique Caribe, and I hope that everything will be resolved shortly.

Personally, I am not asking for an explanation because I feel entitled to one. I am just curious about the reasons why Dan's account has been blocked. I will be equally happy either an explanation is given or not.

And I will stop writing right now, because otherwise I risk a very long DH sentence.

Tango01 Supporting Member of TMP In the TMP Dawghouse04 Oct 2017 8:17 p.m. PST

John… you know I like you… and I respect you… but as well as surely you understand the passion of the hobbie, which is at all a feeling … you should also have to understand the feelings of the people who participate in TMP … towards our fellow members … the good as the bad ones … in the case of CC those who like him…. as myself… can not avoid to show our support and even beg for a decrease in their grief … maybe … one day… you would be the next to achieve such a positive attitude … even if you reject it(smile).

The only "private" thing between Bill and his Editors and people here is via PM … the rest is public … therefore it is natural that supports and rejections arise … at least for a few that seem to stand out from the rest for various reasons …

It is not wrong to show openly a sympathy for a fellow member … it is wrong the agression, the malicious criticism, persecution, insult, rejection without a firm motive and of course excessive contempt … all this is here unfortunately and I not hear so many condemnations for this as to support a dear friend of the forum.

Hopefully in the future many more supports of this type will emerge and not so many malicious criticisms … because if we are going to raise our banner every time someone decides to show sympathy and positive feelings towards a fellow member … we also have to raise them when others commit acts of aggression without foundation … one is always a warrior … or it is not …

Your Argentine friend.

Well said, Raúl.

TGerritsen05 Oct 2017 3:15 a.m. PST

Another voice in favor of CC. I don't always agree with him, but he's a great guy and passionate. I fear that the way things are going, we'll run out everyone on this site before too long.

I'd rather see more friendly reminders and helping hands than calls for the rules are the rules, consequences be darned.

Legion 405 Oct 2017 6:32 a.m. PST

Tango +2 thumbs up

Gone Fishing05 Oct 2017 6:45 a.m. PST

I'm not even sure what happened, but I'll echo TGerritson: the crowd of "good blokes" has gone down significantly these past years, and it would be a shame to lose another.

It also sounds as though CC has gone through a great deal of stress lately, what with hurricane damage, etc. Unless I'm missing a piece in the puzzle (definitely possible!) it seems some mercy here wouldn't hurt.

Tango01 Supporting Member of TMP In the TMP Dawghouse05 Oct 2017 9:30 a.m. PST

Untill yesterday… Editor Gwen didn't contact CC… hope she did it soon…

Thanks my friends.


Condottiere05 Oct 2017 9:50 a.m. PST

It all seems so very silly.

Hafen von Schlockenberg05 Oct 2017 9:52 a.m. PST

Editor Gwen is communicating with Cacique Caribe

Dan has agreed to let me impart the following:

He has received PM's from Gwen, but when he tries to reply,he gets the "An error has occurred" message.

Bill recently changed the coding to render the PM function inoperable for those with locked accounts. Apparently,this was not to be so for those in "temporarily locked" status.

If that is the case, it seems not to be working properly.

On a personal note, although Dan had asked me not to start a "Free CC" thread, that's now moot,so I will add my name to the list of those who want him back.

Dynaman878905 Oct 2017 9:53 a.m. PST

How bout Mercy for the rest of us? Mercy from these "Mercy for" topics.

Hafen von Schlockenberg05 Oct 2017 10:11 a.m. PST

Here's one quick solution I've discovered: when I see a topic I'm not interested in reading, I don't click on it.

Seems to work pretty well.

Eh, it's like watching a train wreck, especially with the ALL CAPS headlines.

Hafen von Schlockenberg05 Oct 2017 11:12 a.m. PST

I agree that less shouting would be desirable.

VCarter Supporting Member of TMP05 Oct 2017 12:21 p.m. PST

As I wrote earlier, this is the first one of these threads that I have joined in on. Special circumstances on this case and all that.

I've PM'd her email address to you, please pass it along.

set cc free

Legion 408 Oct 2017 1:49 p.m. PST

Yes … he needs to be unlocked, IMO …

Cacique Caribe31 Oct 2017 6:26 p.m. PST

Well, it looks like I'm back!

The 31-day vacation was fun and relaxing. I even came back with a nice golden tan and a fresh outlook.



I want to thank those who spoke well of me here, or that at least gave me the benefit of the doubt. I won't forget you guys. So, in the coming days I'll be putting up a few items for sale in Marketplace, and you guys will get a 20% break off the price on each lot. Look for that later this week.

Like I said, thanks for your support and good wishes.


Ottoathome Inactive Member31 Oct 2017 6:52 p.m. PST

The result is joyful though the process leaves much to be desired.

Tango01 Supporting Member of TMP In the TMP Dawghouse31 Oct 2017 9:01 p.m. PST

Happy to see you here again Dany… (smile)

Those who speak from ignorance are often wrong.
