    That makes TOS trolls or they'd stop him from coming back so often.

    No Kemper is not a true troll. True trolls thrive at TOS. How many times has Kemper been kicked off? They wouldn't kick a troll off...
    TOS is a money forum and it is the " trolls " that have allowed them to grow in the past. They didn't want to earn their money by enforcing the rules ( trolls will generally play by the rules ) so they tried eliminating them, in part by allowing members to break the rules. They are now trying to get them back , in part by blaming eliminations on past admin. So, you are probably right that they wouldn't kick one off. With the exception of one who tried telling them what the problems were . 😉

    And, as I LOVE to hear, "To be honest", or "Do you want the real truth".

    Kemp knows what he is doing.
    He is a smart guy who is bored and he cures the boredom this way when the batteries are dead in the Metal Detector.
    He LOVES to push buttons, just absolutely loves it. And when no one engages, he pushes again.
    This thread was dead, right? He ups it, and BOOM, two fish.
    And the answer to him is pretty simple really, if ALL the Forums and SM's are doing it wrong, start one yourself.
    Trump did it.
    Thanks for the compliment. Batteries in my metal detector are not dead and the reason is .. well, you nailed it. I'm a smart guy. My go-to detector uses 4 AA batteries and it costs me about 13 cents a day to operate. There are threads going on now over at the detecting forums of people complaining about all the problems of keeping their batteries charged because of connector problems of the latest machine.

    Since you like to compliment the messenger while avoiding the message, as I presented in post # 34 , I'll bite , but not because I'm bored. It's because I have the time to be courteous . You did touch lightly on my concern but you missed the point. The sites are not in themselves doing it wrong . It's a matter of the members not doing what is needed to retain members and make people want to join . People are a bit too worried about themselves and not concerned with others. But that is easy to see if a person looks at various sites.

    Starting a new forum is not the answer to the gang mentality that has ruined so many , as it usually only creates a different gang. But smart guys like me and others can keep them from becoming what they despise , but only if we try to and accomplish keeping discussions going.

    I've been on some sort of forum for 20+ years now - Tidal Fish, THT, BOB... and many of the spin off forums.

    I come for different reasons than many - I like to challenge myself and others, to learn different perspectives thru discussion. Sometimes I rabble rouse and stir the pot, sometimes things get heated...

    Decades in the bilge talking smack and jabbing/getting jabbed at... and my line of thinking is typically much different than the "group". My line if thinking is way different than many here, if not all.


    I've been banned once from one place for a total of 5 days.


    If you keep getting banned from multiple places, perma banned in some cases - the problem isn't with those places, the problem is the poster.
    Isn't that nice ! 😉
    If you come here for what you claim ( as highlighted ) you sure ain't worth a sh!t at it. That may be the reason you avoid the bans. Some people avoid them by being themselves .

    That would be a debate.

An example of an argument would be 2 people providing a part # for a motor part while only one is correct . If a person showed a pic or a factual link the other person should admit they were wrong but may continue to argue.

    Debates on the other hand can be good and can often bring new issues into them. You are not a debater and don't seem to like to debate which is fine. But your disinterest shouldn't cause you to label debates as arguments. Your statement - " It comes down to your motive for being here , IMO , and some people just want drama or turmoil . " I don't think is a fair statement but if you would have left the word " just " out it may be closer to being fair.

    You wouldn't make a good " troll " by today's standards and that is nothing to be proud of.
