It was @mchepp’s comment that got me looking in this direction, so thanks for the assist, Mike.

What is funny is the mountains are the only thing I remember about him. He has some great views from his range, no idea why he spends so much time on our forum posting nonsense. I can't remember where I left my keys, but a beautiful range from 2012, can't forget it.

Patrick57 has a long history of being banned here. I remember him from the old site years ago just getting tossed. He is persistent and consistently obnoxious. You have to give him that!

@Billy Z joins the list of the departed. Addition via subtraction.

The reasons are obvious if you paid any attention to his posts. And his last post managed to reach a new level of stupid.

Thanks for the update.

I applaud this for the simple reason that there has to come a time when people are called out for who they really are - even though  in this case the perpetrator proudly demands that we know what he is -  despite gentle and not so gentle prodding with regard to at most getting a simple education and at the least showing the capacity for understanding simple concepts that one assumes most of us share, but sadly, don't.

It's one thing to be belligerent, crude, crass, grumpy and just plain dumb, but to be so wilfully and proudly out of touch is something else. To essentially mock a movement that is designed to create inclusivity and recognise an ugly history and see it as a joke is about as low as it gets. Now more than ever, this sort of mentality needs to be called out. 

Rant over. :-)

Nah.

Folks like Thomas can't fathom that a bunch of people can independently arrive at the conclusion that he's a dope. So it must be that I have "minions" (his words) who just suck up to me.

Ha. As if.

I guess it's easier for some people to think that their enemy is a cult rather than a bunch of informed individuals. Saves one the bother of introspection. 🙃

This nails it. And if he read this he’d think..’yeah…another minion.’

Ya gotta love the name "bileyerheid" tho.  

Sounds like he may have originated from my neck of the woods,

  ‘Awayanbileyerheid’ is a fairly humorous response to someone , 

sort of like ,get lost your talking drivel (nonsense)

If you want to get an insight of the meaning , Google ‘ Parliamo Glasgow’ -;))

I just came across the thread and it seems like he somewhat optimizes the view lots of folks in the US have that these movements by people who historically have been underrepresented in positions of power who are initiating changes to ways of thinking is upsetting to them.

I won't go into my theory as to what's behind it bc that would put us OT, I'll just note that even though I hadn't really noticed much of what he posted, he seemed like a regular poster (who even posted in this thread) so i was surprised when i saw he had been banned.

He was a troll.

  • He received > 1 "trolling" warnings.
  • He said he was "leaving" once because "he didn't fit in and never had" (paraphrased).
  • He posted that people here are "minions" trying to "suck up" to me.
  • He also said my golf swing sucks. 🙂

The older I get, the less I care about the opinions of stupid people. I am starting to see why older people just say what they think more often.

Thing is, too, nobody hears my inner monologue. I don't say everything I think about other people to other people, but I "hear" what I "say" internally about myself 100% of the time.

    • I think for the most part a golfers skill is taken into account in golf. Like having your ball end up in a divot in the fairway, you may get this bad break once every few years, or maybe 5 times in a year.  A putter who makes 100% of his putts from 5-FT on a perfectly flat putt, with perfect green. Could exist in the world. Maybe Tiger would make 100/100 one day on a perfectly flat surface from 5-FT. If you add in the randomness, then for the putts near the edge, there is a 33% chance that putt would miss, and a 66% it would make, instead of a 100% chance it would make. To me, the randomness just causes better putters to miss more often.  Which closes the gap.   
    • @cipher enjoy the day. Have you seen the tickets have been dropping in price? I saw $200 for Saturday posted. To be honest I have never been to a PGA tournament and have no idea if $200 for a day is considered good. 
    • I've heard a story about Bobby Jones, however even I'm not old enough to verify it as true. Bobby was supposedly putting one day with who I believe was Horton Smith, but I may be wrong on the name. When he was setting up to putt, Horton (or whoever) asked him if he was going to clean the worm castings from his line, since the may knock his putt off line. Bob's response was "they may knock it on line as well". 
    • I think what it boils down to is that the bad putters would gain a bit and the good putters would loose a bit from their respective normal from the ensued randomness. That makes sense so I changed my vote.  
    • Bumps hurt the good putter too.  I probably am not explaining my thought process well, and good chance I'm totally wrong since I'm in the minority in the poll 😀.  But if you use the shotgun approach, say the average proximity on all putts for the good player is 2 feet.  And the average for the poor putter is 3 feet.  Then the randomness kicks in acts as a multiplier, some putts get better and some putts get worse.  When the multiplier is applied to the 2 proximities, the number increases more for the poor player.   say the multiplier is 1.5, 3x1.5=4.5 (new proximity average) 2x1.5=3 (new proximity average) good player new versus old proximity...3-2=1 foot increase bad player new versus old proximity....4.5-3=1.5 foot increase  The poor player's shotgun increases by a wider margin.
