    I just noticed that Tufftony is no longer registered on the forum. His past posts states he's "Anonymous Unregistered". How does this happen? Did he piss off the moderators? Did he request to be unregistered? In the 15 months that I have been on the forum I've never seen this happen. Just curious.

    I doubt that anyone but a Mod or two knows.

    It could be he was removed for transgressions. It could be he got pissed off and demanded to be removed. Interesting, if that be true, as I believe he was the one who started with "snowflake" mentions.

    I know that you believe you understood what you think I said, but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

    Amazing that someone could start an "I'm Back" thread laced with insults and then step on their proverbial dick.

    I'm shocked. Shocked I say.

    I told him it wasn’t going to end well. He kind of reminds me of my father... pissed off at the world because everyone else sucks except for him. Haha.

    Hahah well presumably this thread will disappear too, but there's guys like that who join a board, piss everyone off somehow, then storm off to another board, piss everyone off there, then join another board, and do the same. Eventually they change their name (as TT did), and join another board, and piss off everyone there too.

    This has happened on pipe (and guitar, and movie, and knitting...) forums for as long as pipe forums have been a thing. The tolerance level at some places is low, so the shelf-life is lower on some boards - but guys like this manage to find the edge and go right past no matter what the rules/spirit of the place are like.

    One thing about TT that was different from the other strange cases that have drifted in and out of this place is that he actually posed some very interesting topics. He may have been overly fond and desirous of social combat, but he also contributed in a good way.

    So I gather that he was back, and now is gone. Sic transit gloria mundi.

    I never believed he was 80 years old like he claimed. He was your typical troll who never lasts long in this place.

    " fond of social combat, but he also contributed in a good way."

    That's a nice term, Sable, "social combat", and I think that these things (meaningful contribution and social combat) often go hand-in-hand. People with expertise usually are happy to share their expertise, but it is also usually on their terms. This makes for a slightly combative environment often enough, and certainly people like George and myself are at home there - not looking for a fight, but believing very strongly that what we bring to the table is well thought out and backed by long experience/genuine data.

    The line between being genuinely curious about controversial stuff and posting about controversial stuff just to see what happens (being a troll in other words) is not always clear, but the results usually are!

    Out of place here but totally typical, even restrained, for the internet at large. It's a venting place for the disturbed. As sable said, he had some contributions. Too bad he couldn't stick with that. People get isolated and their feelings fester. Then they go online. Yipes.

    Lacking social skills? Communication skills? Who knows? I just enjoyed his rather short tenure with us.

    Summarized nicely by Ashdigger. He took a forum suicide pill a few months ago, so we can comply.
