I think it smarts most because its a lie.  I'm not a threat to DF, never was.  Its been long enough - they should review bannings on their own.  [On that note I do - other than confirmed spammers etc we have no banned members on PDO anymore].  And apart from the initial surprise PDO has not been any kind of threat to DF anyway.  Except, perhaps, as an open place to discuss it Smiley
Um, Elise I know of a lot more harmless and helpful folks that were crucified because they were seen as a threat in some way.  Smiley  Most real threats don't see themselves as such.  What you did with PDO was enough to demonstrate my point.  There is some pretty unconventional stuff here and belief in it could jeopardize the establishment.  You have no idea what a threat this place is.  I know how much I have changed here based on my personal gain from the information here and the relationships I've formed with some of the members.  In turn, I find myself involuntarily influencing many others in my community.  Ideas bring down entire societies.  PDO is just that: a place where some very powerful ideas are openly discussed and encouraged.  What could be more dangerous than that?  This is the one site where we discuss that it's possible to dance in accordance with the book without having to dance according to the book.  With ideas like that, the learning curve that's established gets turned on its ear.  

When you were banned, you took action and created a safe haven for folks such as yourself.  You are a double threat because not only do you have ideas, you actually take action and put the wheels in motion to foster and grow these ideas.  If I were DF, I would do exactly what they did.

I was aware, but the picture made it more real, and it's a lifetime ban!  That's what makes you so awesome!  Smiley

Ah, I see.  I don't think I've ever been awesome before Smiley And its hardly what they had in mind....  It was worse before, they had a red line strike through your name on the forum itself - as if you had been physically bisected..  Now you can't tell who has been beheaded....

OTOH, I could think of far  better ways to achieve that stratospheric characterization Undecided

I haven't being on DF for a dog's age.  Reading this thread I thought I would check it out.  I forgot my password so had to find it again.

Yep, same topics as here but I feel I can express my opinions on this one.

So maybe one forum is enough anyway.  Don't suppose anyone would remember me there except the mods anyway - if they wanted to talk they would have signed up here by now.  I assume most people know about PDO.  But maybe they dont...

Perhaps we should have a bit of a 'cite PDO on FB' campaign.  I've linked to us several times there so all my 'friends' should have seen it...

DSV and TD are a little busy but I promise you they haven't "left".

I can only speak for myself but I have not left PDO. SG is right I have been very busy this last year. I am hoping that it will calm down a little in the near future.  Smiley

Totally understand, sometimes life gets in the way or we just have to take care of business and we don't end up with a lot of spare time to do other things.

Postings on DF seem to be becoming increasingly strident - "It's THIS!  No, it's not!  Yes, it is!" and so on.  I can handle vigorous debate but I dislike posters who are self-appointed (self-annointed?) "experts" who refuse to even consider other points of view.

The Argentine tango subforum is just plain schizophrenic or maybe that's just the nature of AT.   Grin

Aside:  ballroomdancers.com has great videos, which I access often, but member activity there is IMO close to non-existent.

Actually as funny as it is, I am not aware of history, because when you were banned, I was on a 10-day trip without internet access. And when I got back to my home base, the commotion on df has already died down (if there was any). All I saw was a post from DF powers-that-be refusing to discuss your departure.
