    I don't even think Jimmie fell for that.
    I don't get it. If it was such an obvious joke - which it was - why all the hoopla and the permanent banning of a user?

    He was only banned for a few weeks, maybe a month at first. But he repeatedly created new accounts to rant and rave, and make an *** of himself. That is why he was permantly banned.

    That must have been a little scary having someone from Palm show up at your doorstep. Too bad it wasn't Donna Dubinsky, she's a hottie.

    My god -- I was in the coffee shop yesterday and made some comment about Mr Roarke and Tattoo and the manager of the coffee shop stared blankly at me. I said...you know..."Fantasy Island" ?? He asked me what it was. I said it was on ABC after the "Love Boat" on Friday nights. "Oh, I've seen Love Boat in re-runs before...but I've never heard of Fantasy Island".

    Where the hell is my walking cane?!?

    I understand what you are saying but I still don't understand why he was banned at all (for a few weeks ????) for a post that everyone is saying was an obvious joke. And now when I read the post I saw a bunch of nasty stuff added by some admin that would probably make me pissed like an Irishman on Saint Paddy's if I was left to blow in the wind while someone too free shots to the body.

    Well, anyway thanks for the explanation.

    Maybe it was a matter of CYA on T|C's part? I dunno. FWIW, I didn't think he deserved a ban, (for the joke) and even said as much in one of the threads, not that it mattered to anyone who matters.

    Pulled a prank post on what the new Treo was going to be, however, it was less on prank and more specifically, deliberate trolling. (Info supposedly gained at a legit business user conference.) Kept playing the post as real for 2 to 3 days, stringing it out. Then acted like the wounded party when called on it, saying it was an obvious joke and he had been too busy to come back to the forum and tell people otherwise. (However, he had enough time to string it out and know that it was a prank out of control -- if he was really the innocent he later claimed to be.)

    It was not so much the prank -- but the arrogance and trolling that went with it. And then the wounded innocent act afterwards.

    More Palm pansies with their panties in a bind if you ask me, P. To ban him was silly and petty.

    P.S. Treoshmeo sounds a lot like slinky, well spoken with a bit of sarcasm.
