Preface: I am not whining about being banned, but wanting to warn others that a ban from GLP may simply be a money making exercise.

I was banned from posting on the 22/7/2011 allegedly as part of an ISP wide ban, I emailed asking if I had done anything wrong and received a standard pre-formatted response. Then I was further banned from viewing on the 28th and received this reply to my query: "However if you believe that you are not the perpetrator of the act mentioned in the preceding paragraph of this reply, you may register for an upgraded membership and bypass this range ban. Upgraded members are immune from automatic and large range IP bans"
Note: On both occasions I had done nothing wrong and now I need to pay to be unbanned?
Now today I see that there is a "Ban Amnesty" in effect where for 24 hours all banned members have the opportunity to purchase an upgraded account that is immune from these wide ranging bans.

24 Hour Ban Amnesty Starts Now - If You've Been Banned You Should Upgrade Your Account Now If You Want Back In

I'm lifting all bans for 24 hours to give the people caught up in the ISP range bans a chance to upgrade their accounts so they can bypass the bans...

You need to signup for a free account first THEN upgrade that account while logged in...

I WILL RESTORE ALL OLD BANS IN 24 HOURS

PAID MEMBERS CAN BYPASS BANS BY USING THE LOGIN LINK ON THE BAN PAGE

So if you are getting caught up in NO VIEW ISP BANS then you should probably upgrade your account if you want to keep using this site..

I really don't give a shit about the traffic loss from ISP bans

This site is here for the FEW not the MANY

It's growing too big and I have NO MERCY on banning these fucks

Sorry if you've been caught up in a ban but that's the way it is

This isn't facebook

:)

-- carry on

oh and if you don't know how to upgrade you need to login to your regular free account then hit the "upgrade account" link on the left members menu or use the donate button at the top

make sure you are logged into your free account when you upgrade so it credits you properly

It's only $10 a month to have an upgraded account here...

If you don't have a free account you can make one here:

Few will listen,
Of the few who listen, fewer still will understand,
Understanding does not mean believe,
Of the handful who believe, most may not know what to do,
Those who even know, how many will actually do ?
And the rare ones who have done it.......
Need not listen to you anymore.

I would not pay $10 a month to any site, that's ridiculous.

I have paid token fees ($20 a year) on two boards I really feel

are worth it to me. Other than that, NO.


Trinity sucks, he's just making money off the suckers.

If you're a sucker, by all means go for it.

GLP ain't where it's at anymore though, hasn't been since the Massacre.

P.S. Not that this place isn't worth it to me, but I feel I contribute a lot here,

and I'm retired now, so money is scarce.

Why, yes, as a matter of fact I do own the fuckin' forest. No creeps or liars need apply. :)

I only subscribe to ONE site (Dungeons & Dragons Online), and not for the forums, either. There, "access to all content" means I can play any race, class or area, not simply a way to avoid being banned. It's like Trinity thinks he's running an MMO rather than a forum.

Agreed, its all a bit of entertainment and stimulation for me, I have better things to spend $10 on!
But its not even the $10 that bugs me, its the deception and blatant trickery.
I feel for the not so savvy that will take it all at face value and fill the GLP coffers for a lie.

P.S. I found this forum after I was banned, googling "banned on godlike productions" looking to see there was a pattern rolleyes.gif

There was more than one massacre? After the first one it just became a cycle. Some people enjoy abusive relationships.

Once, twice, three times a nice lady.

Four massacres by my last count.

No one voluntarily stays in an abusive relationship unless they're getting something out of it.

I wasn't that into GLP, just an AC, but I had earlier followed someone's link here,

so I knew what was going on in 2005 and just stayed here. That was when there

was a dozen threads here with all the best advice about cleaning GLOP cooties

off your puter. I even got a free, what is is called? Kazinski or something, and

I just could not believe the shit it cleaned off from there.


So I never went back, this here was good enough for me.

So "dumbass" needs 1667 paid subscribers at $10 a month for 12 months to generate the $200,000.00 in revenue he wants.


He'll probably hit their credit cards for the full $120 and when he hits the magic 1667 suckers, he'll close it and declare the government shut him down.


Just 'cause you're right ...that don't mean I'm wrong.
