I was banned from that scumbag site pogo. I was teaching someone how to play a game. Someone joined are game and had a smart azz mouth. I got tired of them and their comments after I told them I was teaching them. So I told them to shut up and mind their own Fn business. Pogo felt the need to ban me so F*$K them. Pogo can take their site and shove it.

Yikes! I am so sorry that Pogo treated you like that! That's why I don't chat in Pogo at all. No matter what I do or say, some jack*** comes in and starts trouble, and before you know it, the whole chat room is stirred up against me and starts a World War III. Geeeeeeeeeeesh, that's pretty bad!

It was frustrating. I explained to them more than once that I was teaching them. It seems like Pogo didn't read the chat log.

I am very sorry that happened. This is just one of the reasons why I don't chat in Pogo: Too many problems whenever I would chat, and it seemed like the Pogo staff never did anything about it. I'd get ganged up on, and would keep reporting it, to no avail. I think that Pogo might be so busy and understaffed that they don't have the time and energy to do a thorough investigation into things like that. That can be a danger when places grow really fast and the staffing doesn't keep up. That seems to be a common problem in a lot of places nowadays, though. Again, what you went through really, really bites, and it takes a lot of fun out of doing stuff online. But, I found out the hard way, ya gotta be really, really super-duper careful. :-(

When my whole crew quit a gas station because they treated our manager unfairly, who had given us all jobs when we needed them,we walked out, and were all trespassed from the establishment for one year.It was the closest convenience store to my house too, so it wasnt any fun,lol.

I recently got banned from a local computer store while I have been in excruciating pain and, at times, severely sleep deprived due to nerve pain and tingling keeping me up all night. The store owner thinks that I am very mentally unbalanced and am going to hurt someone someday, and that he has a duty to protect him and his staff from me. I am very tempted to name the name of the business. I am stuck with a wireless modem that I had purchased from the store prior to the store owner banning me for life. Going to the Better Business Bureau and Atorney General did no good at all. In fact, he even wrote to the Better Business Bureau telling them how "crazy I am" and showing them supposed "proof" (stuff made up and stuff taken out of context) and it's on the BBB Web site. It's all stuff that I sent in emails to the business while in on-fire chronic-sciatica and lower-back pain, and was in no way threatening, but was very angry and heated after many hours of having sat on my chair and talked with computer and other technical support to no avail. So much sitting and talking on the phone in front of my computer was causing my lower back and left leg to go on fire, with no end in sight. For that, I got labeled a "physical threat in which the store owner must protect him and his staff from me" and permanently banned. And, the very nasty reply from the store owner to the BBB is there on the BBB Web site for all to see, all in its utter nastiness. I have had to contact D-Link, the manufacturer of the wireless modem, directly, and have filed a complaint with their headquarters about the business and what they did, and am going to inquire about getting a refund from D-Link directly. It's not that the modem doesn't work right, it's that I need a lot of one-on-one support to properly configure my wireless connection due to my various disabilities, and the store has denied me the support I really need. Therefore, I am looking at getting a refund directly from D-Link so that I can get a wireless modem from another place, a place that WILL give me one-on-one support without banning me for supposedly being "insane."

Yeah I was and it was because of a friend being too rowdy in a bar. I tried to stop him or calm him down but it looked like a fight and we both were kicked out and barred from coming back. Oh well. There were others and other friends.

I'm sorry you had to go through that, and all for trying to stop your friend and calm him down. But, you're right. There are lots of other bars out there.
