Kite U.S. Forums _ Boxing Ring _ PureWind

Posted by: Turtle Sep 5 2008, 05:27 AM

When Joe and Tim turned over the Learn to Kite Forum to me I vowed to have it an un-moderated format. My feelings about this have changed due to one person on this forum (PureWind).

Not sure if anyone else feels this way, but PureWind has no quality input to our forums. His useless posts and brainless comments only continue to further anger the majority of the users on the forum.

Does anyone object, agree or disagree with me to using my admin privileges to delete or moderate posts from this user?

I would appreciate some feedback from both sides.

Bravo Turtle! I think its a splendid idea. Although it sort of makes me feel like communist thinking this way. Ah,what the hell, my favorite color is red! Use ur SUPREME MAJESTY ADMIN POWER and shut him down if you feel the need! You have my support.... for what its worth!!!

I kind of enjoy knowing how much gas money he has on any given weekend.

I will not disagree with you Turtle.
Unfortunately, Purewind is more dangerous at Metro Beach or Blue Lagoon
For himself and for the others !
I wish we can find a way to control him there too...
Turtle, just add a filter for the word "kiteloop" and we will no longer see PW posting..

I don't understand why you guys are so upset with purewind. The only thing I've seen him post in weeks is...

After talking to the guy's at metro today, I realize that purewanker does have a right to speak his mind and that we should all encourage him to do so, since he can bring it!! I therefore retract my statement from earlier and will silently watch as the poowind circus enthralls and entertains us all.
Purewind you have my apology.

by the way, gas has come down some.

I strongly object to moderating PW.

Long live PW!!!

What I really want is that popcorn icon that some forums have to indicate that you are entertained...

"Are you not entertained!?"

First off jerome i dont get what your all pissed about me for.
im not dangerous to metro of BL at all.
If your still pissed about what happen over nothing at metro when my kite deflated in the air and almost hit you.
i did not have any control over that or what happen when it came down.
you were the one running right towards my kite running backwards not watching where you were going.
your just lucky it did not land on your kite i tried my best to drop it safe.

as for saying im the most dangerous to metro or BL look at safety rick all i hear is stupid shit he does and him getting kicked out of kite beaches all over the world. he would prob be the next one to hurt someone next on the local kite scene
O wait he already got sent to court for hurting a windsurfer. so don't put all these stupid excuses on why im the worst kiteboarder in the world.

if you really hate the way i talk on the forum turtle please ban me i dont give a shit im just here to put my 2 words in.
You guys keep doing what you all do best in the mean time ill be riding.

but maybe its best that i keep quiet if i offend everyone on this forum

Life is way to short to take each other so seriously. The forum is a great place for people to say what they want and if you don't like what they are saying, just ignore them. I love the sport and have enjoyed meeting a lot of great people and I'd hate to see people make enemies just because they wanted to blow off a little steam. All in all, most kiteboarders have been polite and considerate and that's is what we should encourage.

Purewind, you really dont understand...
First, stop to focus on me, I just wanted to help you to have a good excuse to go kiting and no working.
If Turtle want to regulate you posts, he must think you are saying to many stupidities...
If Tom call you Pureidiot, there must be some reasons...
I am just thinking you are dangerous for you and for the others kiters around.
You dont really know how to control your kite on the ground and my last observations at Blue Lagoon confirm that.
But the worst is that you have progressed to quickly... and now, you still dont know how to go upwind, you try to do kiteloops
close to the shore. kiteloops are really dangerous, and you are going to be hurt soon. Everybody agree on it.
Please, but sure of one thing, I am not the only to think this way..

I have had many a chuckle reading PW posts. laugh.gif
I have not witnessed him jeopardizing anyone but his own skinny ass.

Posted by: Turtle Sep 8 2008, 07:05 AM

Nice thread!

PW, I think the majority do not feel any moderation of your posts is needed. Again in this thread you prove your stupidity by bringing up topics you know nothing about. I am confident one day very soon you will say the wrong thing to wrong person. I hope your 110lbs mouth can back up your body weight and "Bring It" as you say.

So keep your ignorant & useless posts coming, but stay the Hell away from the my kite spots.

That would be great!

Sorry to be maybe on the "wrong side" but I just think that we cannot ban so of the forum because we don't like what he writes...

If there is some issues on the water, we must iron out this problem on place.

It we disagree with what this guy thinks, we aren't forced to answer him but I think everybody must be permitted to express on this forum.

It will be exactly what can make this forum awesome...

I totally agree Purewind that I don't like the way you speak to everybody but it is your choice... If you don't want any friend, we cannot force you to have some...

I agree with the "no ban on Purewind" camp.

I think he's a really nice guy.. sometimes I just wonder if he enjoys pushing buttons to get a rise out of folks...


Posted by: Brar Sep 11 2008, 11:04 AM

Man !! since everybody and their brother has something to say on this,
I might as well add. Have been meaning to comment on all
the purewind bashing.

John (Purewind) really is a nice guy. Can't imagine him hurting
anyone. I think his sense of humor on the forum comes
off as a bit offensive to some.

It's like safety Rick, i don't know him. And had this opinion on him
from what i'd heard on the net. but according to some
trustworthy folks he's a great block - always helping others.
The other day heard some stories from a certain 'fellow'
who lives in this 'country' and 'Man' !!! did he make me realize how
wrong i was.

The Point is -- if you know PureWind he is not even close to
what his postings are precieved by some. So
Jerome and Turtle and Josh and Marcus ..... he's ok,
go easy on the kid. infact i feel sorry for him for all
you good folks ganging up against the poor guy.

..........

Brar, you're a good man. You're right, we have been a bit hard on the little fella in fact he probably is just trying to identify and fit in. Who could blame him? We're all such a great group of folks! So lets let this thread close and hope we don't feel the need to revisit at any time.

p.s. gas just went up due to IKE rolleyes.gif
