"No Stairway??  Denied!"

That quote went through my head as I read the following message from the mods at The Straight Dope:

You have been banned for the following reason:
We're not here to provide recruits for your board war
Date the ban will be lifted: Never

Board wars?  Recruitment?

I had no such intentions.  I merely wanted a public space to talk about Gawker columnist Mobutu Sese Seko's identity.  But it's clear that a lot of the internet's most popular message boards aren't in the business of creating drama with one another.  It seems I'd have to register my own space.


  1. Their message board is not a "public space", it's a private space they provide to publish comments of yours, at their will. Surprised a capitalist would struggle to understand this concept.
