I never mentioned myself here, and he was doing it to a number of people. That's why he got banned, and rightly so. Why are you and others continually moaning and whining about it?

Now I'm beginning to think you are nuts. So I spent 10 minutes (I'll never do that again!) and found at least a dozen such "mentions", over and over again. Here they are, in this thread alone, in 13 of your replies, so ENOUGH already!

However, he had an unpleasant habit of investigating the private lives of his fellow posters, and then using whatever information he had gleaned to make personal attacks

Wroc³aw Boy went to the lengths of having a go at my eleven year old daughter. What a brave man he must be!
Using her actual name and asking what she thought of her 'loser' Daddy.
What has finding out the names of a poster's family got to do with any form of debate?
No, the problem is with their investigating the private and personal lives of other posters to score cheap points.
I'm not the one investigating the private and personal lives of others, and using children to score cheap points.
No the problem is you have a clique of natives here who bully and intimidate others by investigating their personal lives for the purposes of making personal attacks.

Simple lesson, TB. Don't abuse the families of other posters. Because if you do, then you will get treated as the filth that you are.

What has my eleven year-old daughter got to do with you?
And if you were winning the argument, why would you need to research my family and mention her?
I have never mentioned anything about my daughter on Polish Forums. My friend, TB, must have done some research of his own.
But why do this? And what have a poster's children got to do with anything?
the unpleasant investigation of people's personal lives that has absolutely nothing to do with the subject under discussion.
He also investigated the private lives of forum members in a manner that was totally unnecessary,

I sincerely hope you feel that was time well spent!

not at all! You're just getting more and more annoying! Which, it's obvious that you like to do.
So, as I have done with other annoying, or downright stupid posters, I'll ignore you from now on.

Tragic. But I imagine I'll someday recover from this bitterest of blows.

Again, I hope you enjoyed compiling your collection of quotations from myself.

Hopefully, one day you'll find a publisher.

then morally they should erase Delphs history.

morally delph should change his ways. He might still be a forum member. Rules are Rules follow them and stop making up your own!

And just in case anyones wondering, the thread itself mentions notorious trolls, if no one wants to hear it , then dont read the entire thread. its a place for folks to vent, I am glad admin is putting people in their place. when someone contstantly mentions over and over how stupid pol-ams are, not even for one second would i let my kids talk this way let alone a grown adult, its been since his membership started that people have had to deal with same old arguments and hijacking of threads over and over and over.. so if one person or few of them seem a bit happy that someone is finally gone cause HE alone irritated alot of people who cares let them vent!! if admin doesnt like it they will remove the post. NO big deal EHH?

I just want to say, some of us dont know a whole lot about Poland, I am still learning, I dont think anyone will truely know everything there is to know, daily something new happens , something that affects the history of Poland.. what we need is a daily news feed, someone who can keep us current on new developments , we dont see that a whole lot in here because everyone is too busy arguing!!

I want cold hard facts, all teachers collaborate and make a nice thread that maybe kids can visit that doesnt have sarcasim but tools for kids learning about the holocaust and about poland , I am ordering the book neighbors, my vision of poland has always been pure but ive come out of my cloud and see that its possible tragic things happen we cant understand or explain but need to learn from.

yeah thats my rant and I am sticking to it. blah.

just so you all know I did like delph when he was being nice, but he liked to push buttons and in the end admin has final say.

There always two sides to every story,some of you guys are making Delph out to be the PF anti-Christ which is just plain B-S.

Hardly was Delph any anti-Christ of the PF. He was indeed very brilliant and intelligent, and I think that banning him permanently is a real loss for the PF. But Admin had evidently no choice but to ban him for ever if allegedly he revealed repeatedly personal data of other members.

The real culprits for this banning, however, are in MHO the two other members of the (in)famous little British gang of three (having now been happily reduced to the petty little British gang of two). Unfortunately, Delph had always been influenced by the other two members of the gang whose vicious attitude towards Poland has long been known to everyone here who were not deaf in their Anglo-Saxon ear, but most notably to all Polish-Americans whom the two hated - toutes proportions gardées - nearly as much as Herr Hitler and his comrades hated the Jews of Europe.

Delph had always been ready to carry on whatever discussion in a calm and gentle manner and had he only not been constantly motivated by the afore-mentioned cliqué to constantly walk aside into that wrongfully-chosen path of his, I am sure he would still have been with us, sharing his interesing views and valuable opinion on various subjects.

----------------------------------------------------------------- --------------------
P.S. I was not on the PF for more than six months in 2013, so I now wonder what has happened to the two outstanding Pol-Ams, Des and Polonius, who always fought the little British gang fiercely and unrelentlessly.

If this thread is a place to vent then expect only biased points of view. I see this thread as an attempt by Admin to secure opinion before banning certain members, which I consider weak, if they have a hit list just ban the ones they consider trolls.and erase their history from PF.

daily something new happens , something that affects the history of Poland.. what we need is a daily news feed, someone who can keep us current on new developments

but most notably to all Polish-Americans whom the two hated

I don't believe anyone who you consider the British gang hates Pol-Ams, mostly the Pol-Ams have adopted the views of their parents who left Poland during the times of occupation and their opinions seem mainly outdated and not current. Many of the Anglo - Saxons as you call them moved to Poland 5/10/15/20 years ago their opinions are more current and relevant to today's Poland for people like Patrycja19 who are keen to be informed.

two outstanding Pol-Ams, Des and Polonius, who always fought the little British gang fiercely and unrelentlessly.

From his posts I understood Des was of Czechoslovak Heritage.

If you want to waste money on a libel go ahead.

He was indeed very brilliant and intelligent,

Who cares? Satan is also intelligent, as for his brilliance I would have to see evidence of that unless you mean he was brilliant in being nasty to people to get a reaction out of them.

I don't believe anyone who you consider the British gang hates Pol-Ams,

Please do not do that dance and song about it, they have been targeting Pol-Am's on those site and that is the fact. If they were doing this for fun, from love, jealousy or hate matters not.

moved to Poland 5/10/15/20 years ago their opinions are more current and relevant to today's Poland

Mostly it was about opinion on historical events not current issues. A fact that they moved to Poland hardly makes them experts on the Polish history.

From his posts I understood Des was of Czechoslovak Heritage.

No, not really.

Well according to the rule number 18. All messages posted on this site are the sole opinion and responsibility of the poster,so in the real world all original material posted by Delph remains the intellectual property of the poster and he has the right to ask for its immediate removal from PF. It would be interesting to have Admin/Mods feedback on this and also an explanation how one would request their content removed from PF? as it is not included in the posting guidelines.

mostly the Pol-Ams have adopted the views of their parents

I knew nothing of my grandparents on my dads side and my mothers she told me her grandfather was like a mayor in poland, I was mostly told how they immigrated, my grandmother came thru canada which wasnt remotely true, she went thru ellis, she worked at a ketchup factory in canada, but all the evidence I uncovered suggests she was married and having kids within three years of coming. I doubt she would travel all the way to canada to get paid squat wages.

alot of us Pol ams have no information, this is why we seek it, going on only what we are barely told, only because no one wanted to look back at poland cause it was hard for them in POLAND!! But it doesnt make any of us Polish Americans any less Polish from our family heritage side of it, we might not be currently fluent in Polish Language, or know everything about Poland, but anyone of you british, scottish, irish, welsh etc, I highly doubt you know everything about your own country either, if you keep up with poland how on earth do you keep up with the UK? or any other surrounding countries?? YOU ( you know who you are) Make us out to be stupid idiots like we are supposed to be Eienstein and know when everyone's going to take a dump, if theres so many of you Eiensteins out there and your a genious well then theres nothing left for you to learn now is there??

Dont hand me the line of bull, we all couldnt possibly know everything so stop making people who want to know more about their parents or grandparents old country such a big deal you need to make them look like idiots. Think of it this way, People care enough to want to feel like they are in Poland or whatever country by bringing it to the country they live and sharing it or traditions with others and so what if its not authentic, thats what makes Poland the place to visit, because if they get a taste of what it might be like, they might want to visit the real place one day.. and learn more about it.

Des should have just ignored Del and del the same, Polonis, he means well, but goes overboard sometimes I dont know where he comes up with some of his stuff, but all in all, he was spot on with some of the things here we experience and when someone mentioned anything about Polish Americans someone always wanted to shoot it down and on purpose to irritate certain members I was told in a PM. so admins decision was made for a good number of Posters who just didnt post cause if they did they would be told off.

if you want to be a productive contributor, then you need to lead by example, Delph might have helped but he hurt also and those two do not go hand in hand I dont care what anyone else says.. you cant be a good and bad guy in the same forum. like I said I liked him but sometimes I just felt like he was more against me even though he said he liked pol ams he was just playin, thats like rubbin the same spot over and over it keeps getting sore and pretty soon it hurts, he kept rubbin.

If you scroll down the Privacy, Forum Rules, TOS, Disclaimer, you will see this:

IV. Deleting and Editing Forum Posts

Only Admin and assigned moderators have the ability to delete or edit posts that they deem to be inappropriate. A member can edit his/her own post within less than an hour after making the post, but he or she cannot delete it completely.

IMPORTANT: As soon as a message is placed in any of the PolishForums.com forum system, you are granting a full soft license to the site to use it at its own discretion. You understand that any possible request to delete or edit a post is in the sole discretion of the Polish Forums administrators. In most cases, however, unless the message contains personal contact information, such requests will be denied.

British would include England, Northern Ireland,Scotland and Wales

It is only the Republic of Ireland or southern Éire which is independent.

Below you can find a couple of links to keep up with what is going on in Poland.

Ok so on that basis PF owns the rights/ intellectual content to each post after one hour of placing the post on PF, so why ban Delph or anyone else based on retrospective posts which do not belong to them?

Delphi didn't though. He had absolutely no idea how ordinary Poles lived. He was the Polish Forums expert, not the Poland expert.

Really? I thought that he has been banned because he has been baiting Dess in the chat.

Vincent, I appreciate the title of this thread and we can put Delph aside for a moment. In laymans terms if I post a response on PF so when and how does the ' full soft licence' kick in and what exactly is " full soft licence"? for your information Vincent " full soft licence" is new to me maybe you can explain? I have heard of "full software licence" for software or " copyleft " for copyright.

Really? I thought that he has been banned because he has been baiting Dess in the chat.

Ok so is the chat covered by a separate set of terms and conditions/rules?

I have no idea why Delph was banned other than what I read on this thread.

I will let Admin explain the technical term to you, if wishes to do so. My interpretation is, his posts are here to stay and no amount of whinging by you will get them deleted. Do you really think someone has the time to go through 1000's of threads to find delphi posts and delete them?

Delphi lived here. PF was his only outlet. Deleting his tens of thousands of posts would be a truly sisyphean task.

His banning should be regarded as an act of charity and mercy by the moderators. Given time, Delphi will switch off his computer, emerge blinking into the unfamiliar world outside, and slowly and hesitantly begin normal human interaction again.

That wouldn't even be half of the job, the posts responding to his posts would lose the sense so you'd have to delete them too, without that it would cause a massive mess of people looking like they are talking to themselves

Based on the PF terms and conditions if Delph contacted you tomorrow and asked you to remove his posts you most likely would have no option but to remove them.

I don't think so, when delphi registered as a member he agreed to the TOS like every new member does to this day. I would suggest you PM Admin and tell him that you want delphi's posts deleted, as he is in a better position to handle your request.

I have asked the simple question when you perma ban will you also delete the authors posts from PF database.

This is something you need to ask Admin. Have you given any thought to what happens to the other posts in the threads which quoted delphi's posts? These would have to be deleted too, leaving the threads unreadable.

I am interested how well thought through this whole thread was, it just seems a knee jerk reaction to me and Delph is being hung out to dry, As Lenka( former Mod) mentioned in one of her posts on this thread Delph was manageable there are others on this forum who are far more troublesome, racism, religious bigotry and sexism are rife on this forum and and need to be stamped out.

No offense but you probably haven't read as many of delphi's posts as we have. If you were online the day before this thread was created you couldn't help but notice the mayhem he caused trolling the forums, and all because in his own words "I have a day of work and I'm bored" Is this a good enough reason to turn a blind eye?

I've noticed some kind of move towards normality on this forum in recent days. Hopefully, people can start discussing Polish issues rather than individual posters. This can only be a good thing.

Hopefully, the madness can be contained to this thread and the off-topic lounge.

Well done, Mods.

I agree. There might have been good reasons to ban Delph, but I'd rather applaud than blame him for calling out the (mostly) American neo-Nazis who - in the name of free speech - are still able to pollute this forum with their racist crap while at the same time claiming to be Polish "patriots".

Most forums would call that spamming, but for some reason, it's allowed here.
This is a strange forum.

Well the forum certainly have terms and rules which are either not enforced or contradict the real goings on at PF. A quick example below:

PolishForums.com has adequate security measures to protect against misuse, alteration, and loss of your personal information or forum messages. In order to make sure that other posters do not use your name or nick name in their posts, you are strongly encouraged to sign up for a free account. Members can also edit their preferences and subscribe to any topic; this allows them to receive other posters' replies to their personal email account.

Polish Forums respect your privacy. All information you provide us with is completely confidential. We will not resell, or trade your personal information with any other parties. That includes your name, email address, private posts, or any other personal details.

18. All messages posted on this site are the sole opinion and responsibility of the poster.

17. Duplication or copying of content without our express written permission is a violation of copyrights. Users who do that will be denied access to the site.

What's cool is to mock others doing something, yet never ever attempt to do anything constructive yourself.

Bunch of losers, aren't you.

The above post is in violation of rule 2. Posters should refrain from using abusive or derogatory language (unless it's necessary to explain the language's nuances). Posters who use abusive or derogatory language towards other users may be banned.

To the Mods how long are you going to allow this member "szczecinianin" to break forum rules and continue to mock and insult other posters on PF, he ha already been warned for abusing Wroclaw Boy, why is this allowed to continue.

You've been going on ad nauseam about the terrible injustice of Delphi being banned. I wouldn't be at all surprised to hear you cry yourself to sleep at night over the disappearance of your hero. However, I think I would have to make a thousand or so posts similar to the one above before I came anywhere near matching the volume of abuse Delphi has been dishing out to others over a number of years.

Apart from which, I believe what I have written is perfectly true. You, and a small number of natives here, are a bunch of losers. You mock anyone new who comes here, and try to put them down. And Delphi was your idol and king.

Sorry, warszawski, but as far as I'm concerned, the king has no clothes. One day, hopefully, you'll get over your teenage crush on the man, grow up, and see that I'm telling the truth. But I'm not seriously expecting your infatuation to end anytime soon.
