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.

@MattM was banned (by me) earlier today.

Long story short, Matt doesn't seem to live in this reality. He's created one of his own.

  • He whined about being labeled as "playing the victim" while playing the victim.
  • He brought up race in a conversation that had nothing to do with race.
  • He'd sent me DMs after I had asked him (or told him) not to as I'm busy this weekend dropping my daughter off at college and didn't want to spend my little daily time on TST dealing with that crap.
  • He then DMed me again at Evolvr where, as a customer, he feels that the customer is always right, and it's his right and privilege to continue to pester me there.

The content of the DMs was tame by some standards, but shows just how far out of whack @MattM is with reality in others. Some things were essentially facts, yet denied by Matt.

Matt's first DM, which I didn't really read at first but later read after I'd made predictions (he'd assumed that he was the only individual warned and that I had done the warning) about what he'd written, started off by saying "I know you've never liked me" or something like that.

I don't like or dislike 99% of you here. Why? Because I know about 0.000001% of each of "you." I don't know you guys. I've met a few, but I don't even know if I "like" or "dislike" some of the people I've met a few times. I'm inclined to "like" all of you, though, because we have golf in common, and that's awesome.

But if you think I "dislike" you because you disagree with me every now and then… then I don't know what to tell you, because I don't work that way. Disagreement can be fun. It can be bonding.

Hell, ask @Vinsk if I dislike him, and we've argued now and then a good bit.

Anyway, @MattM is now banned here and at Evolvr, because the customer is not always right, and because as a human being myself, I do not want to or need to be treated as I was by Matt. I don't enjoy participating with delusional folks who craft their own bizarre reality.

That’s too bad when it comes to that. Maybe this has been asked before (and I’ve forgotten), but in his profile in the forum threads he has a line through his name, but the next line says “well established member” and “established member.” His profile page says the same.  Do those get updated?

Unfortunately, no. His profile shows the line through it, as his username will everywhere, but even that is via a plugin. Otherwise IPB has no real way to show that a user has been banned. They used to have a "Banned Users" group, but they did away with that in version 4.x (which came out like six years ago).

    • Welcome to TST! Once you've played golf you'll always come back to it regardless of the length of the gap or age. Enjoy the journey!
    • Admirable!   Me--No matter where I bring my hands on the backswing, it's the downswing and impact speed that determine how far I flight a ball.  I might bring the back to shoulder, then my brain computes the distance and decelerates the club. On short shots, just the opposite.  Maybe tempo is my problem, but I do okay trusting my brain to the throw the club.  Too much technique and thinking really mess me up in the longrun.
    • Shot 89 today. Drove the ball very well, lost four balls on approach shots. Two were with a wedge in my hands inside 100 yards.
    • I wouldn’t. I like to see one number on the top as I quickly pull it out of my bag to play my next shot. If you want to know the loft of your club, say for gapping purposes, then look it up. Knowing the static loft of your club is not going to help you on the course, and does nothing but force me to look at two digits instead of one to determine which club I’m pulling out of the bag. 
    • This is disconcerting as I was Pfizer'd and if given a choice, back in March, I said I'd take Moderna, but because it was easier to store, not that I had some foresight of its effectiveness relative to Pfizer. This is one study, maybe outlook will change... again. Whatever happens, being cautious regardless of whatever news comes up.
