Banned from Blondepoker

As a lot of you who read this will know, I'm an avid poster on the blondepoker forum. I've made a lot of friends through there that would still be friends even if I quit poker tomorrow and think it's a great place, both in terms of community and content.

I started out just lurking the site and reading the stories on the main page until I deviated to the forum. In the last few years I've spent a hell of a lot of time logged in and posted over 5000 times. When I play any live event I wear a blonde badge and always talk it up as much as possible, which I did both times I was on the Pokershow. I've also tried to contribute to many of the charitable things that have gone on and I did a fair bit of staking too, as well as making some blondes a bit of money with my PLO cash staking too.

All in all I've been a pretty good member of the community I'd say. I do say exactly what I think however which can sometimes make me come across as harsh etc but that's just how I am. I love the silly banter too. Every blonde I've met in person I've always got on with. 2 nights ago I did a bit of flaming of one of the members. Pretty much any blonde I have on msn thinks the guy is a complete idiot and probably should have been banned already but thats another matter - admittedly I was out of line with forum rules.

I came in to work this morning to see I'd been given a 24 hour cooler. Not happy but a fair enough punishment and I swallowed it. Then this evening I find out my ban is being extended. I think this serves no purpose other than to piss me off and is too harsh. For that reason I won't be posting on blonde anymore or playing on the cardroom. Not something I wanted to have to do or thought I would do ever and will take some getting used to but unless things change that's the decision I've made at the moment.

I'm staked to play on blonde so I will be shipping any staker that doesn't want me to move site with the stake their money back and carrying on as normal. To those who I probably won't be contacting again best of luck in future.

Hope to bump into some of you soon.

Where are these homophobic bans going to stop ???

How old are you? 8?

Take your three days off, swallow it, and send the mods an email apologising for the hassle that you caused.

Then ease your way back into the forum and be prepared to have the piss taken.

Hey Cos,

Seems a shame to decide to jack Blonde in for good (would be a poorer place without you imo) I agree that the additional ban is excessive, but cant you just laugh it off? Is it really that big a deal?

Hopefully see you back on there, but gl whatever you decide to do.

All the best

I'd have gone for a 7-day ban myself, but I guess we live in liberal, PC times...sigh.

Cos is a tosser and his pathetic attention seeking decision to quit blonde over a 3 day ban proves it

Cos

Don't chat to you much on Blonde, but the majority of your posts make me laugh. Some are a bit OTT but thats why Blonde is so good, we all have differing opinions.

I kinda understand why you've decided you don't want to go back, but I think, over time, you will, and I can imagine that won't be too long.

All the best
