An Appeal from a Banned member

I have to admit, original. It’s not even one of those innumerable “Downfall” videos.

    Hahaha, how I so laughed at that video. Watched it four times and it still makes me crack a smile. Genius stuff!!

    You think you’ll be winning by making a new account? You’ll be losing for funneling money to this awful game owned by rude, selfish, likely corrupt people.

    I must admit it did bring a smile to my face when I watched it. What i find more distressing are the comments filled with language not normally found in most polite chat groups. While I understand There.com is now “Adult” to me that means grown up and mature and I don’t see how the language shows that in any way. You make more points backing your statements up with facts then with language better suited to a truck stop. I have noticed that people in There are doing this a lot more now. For me at least I don’t see this as a good thing or an improvement; or may I add, likely to attract new people and dollars.

    hey all the video downfall and the othere video is not to offend any 1 excpt maybe the people that are ban from there.com thay are ment to be funny and yes the time and place the movie downfall took place in was a vary bad time in history but this is NOT about that it is about ban people that want back in there.com the people that where ban where ban for a reson

    While there are a few people who have been banned for stupid mistakes ( like a one time chargeback, etc) that were really good to, and for the community, the majority that have been banned for notoriously trolling, harassing, and being outright twits. For those people, I have no sympathy.

    Michael, this is a plea to you on behalf of one other.

    There is one case I would like to bring up. The avatar known as Kevman95 was a respected individual, who was loved by many, however did a really stupid thing with the chargeback from paypal. I know it has been said that these people will not be forgiven. I would be willing to stick my own “neck” out and accept responsibility for this person who I have been able to trust with Tbucks, items, etc and he has never failed in returning what was not his. If it were agreed that the person pay back “damages” to the company, would he be allowed back in? Any further infractions on his part, and you can ban both of us, because I truly believe that he would not make such a clumsy mistake again. Being the skeptic that I am, I do not risk anything of mine unless I believe 100 percent in what I am speaking. I’m not a betting man, and completely believe there will be no trouble from that account.

    • #6 by Kevin Hammett (Kevman95) on 2012.03.27 - 1:26 pm

      I have to say, what you did there was very sweet of you.

      Thanks,
      Kevin Hammett (Kevman95)

      • #7 by PlAiNHaVoC on 2012.03.27 - 7:06 pm

        Kevin, I’ve known you, or at least your personality for several years. You’ve admitted to me your mistake. The “fraud” legally speaking consisting of the chargeback through paypal can happen easily for someone not paying attention to finances. I know that you would not intentionally do something like that, you are too honest a person.

    As Jewish woman who will be observing Passover and Yom Hashoa next month, I am offended by the parody of the movie “Downfall”. It was one of the most horrific times in history of our world; but one we will always REMEMBER!!

        I paid my monthly fee, and have not even use there.com at all thats like trowing 10 dollars away.

    Do we win anything if we guess who made that video? lol My money would be on FrankPrss

    • #15 by frankprss on 2012.04.04 - 6:11 pm

      It wasn’t me, that video is suckup. I would never want to funnel money to this game owned by shady people. So shady in fact, that the BBB couldn’t even find a contact # for “Makena Technologies”. CUSTOMER SERVICE AT ITS FINESTTTT In fact, ever since I stopped playing this “game” (by game I mean graphic voice chat for people with no real life friends) I’ve accomplished much. So you people can stick to leveling your retarded dog handler skill

      • #16 by ImageMaker on 2012.04.06 - 2:02 am

        Good grief, who pissed in your corn flakes? If that’s the way you feel, no one is forcing you to pay a subscription and log in — but in that case, there’s no reason to harrass people who enjoy There, or post comments here about “shady” people. I’ve seen nothing that would substantiate any such charges — but plenty of evidence that Team Phoenix are patient, sensible, smart folks who seem well on the way to solving the problems There had before closing and getting everything running the way it should be.

  10. #17 by majandithere on 2012.03.26 - 9:29 am

    Strange.
    Did I miss something? I couldn’t find anything funny in either of the videos.
    I don’t know what the second one is. Just didn’t find it funny.

    But the first is a masterpiece of reflecting on the darkest part of German history and its’ final hours in Hitler’s bunker. Hitler at this point was still fantasizing about winning the war, only hours before the Russians take over Berlin and he commits suicide along with Nazi propaganda chef Joseph Goering and his wife, who first poisoned their five innocent children, because they couldn’t “stand the idea of being raised in a non national socialist society”.

    Really, all Al Qaida and any other extremist or terrorist group you can think of, any dictatorial regime of the present, how ever rightful contemptible, can keep up with the crimes and the millionfold suffering the Nazi regime has caused.

    I admit, the intention I am sure, is honest and innocent, but to me, I’m sorry to say that, it seems quite inappropriate to tamper with the lines of this movie by transmogrifying sub titles.
    This is a very serious film about a very serious historical period.

    I recommend you take your time and watch it:
    http://www.amazon.com/Downfall-DVD-Bruno-Ganz/dp/B0009RCPUC/ref=sr_1_1?s=movies-tv&ie=UTF8&qid=1332785381&sr=1-1

    But be warned:
    This is not a heroic Hollywood production.
    Facts not fiction, real emotions not special effects are what count here.
    You might learn to really hate, I mean really deeply hate what the Nazis did to each and every person in Germany and the world, what they made ordinary, normal, nice people like you and me, fathers, mothers, neighbors, friends, colleagues, just like you and your loved ones do.

    And there was absolutely nothing anyone really could have done about it. It’s the helplessness that paralysis a whole country, – wipes out awareness and compassion, causes a pain so deep and fundamental that many of us Germans still feel it, though we are the next and even the second next generation.

    We try hard never to forget, to help avoid that anything like that can ever happen again.

    Just had to say that.
    Being happy these times are so over for all of us:
    But thinking of our Brothers and Sisters suffering in Syria, Iran, North Korea, Afghanistan and far too many more places around the globe that urgently need to find peace and freedom.
    Not meaning to offend anyone.
    Just don’t feel like making jokes about these things.
    Sorry

      Stalin killed more people than Hitler. The US currently has more of its population in prison than either Stalin or Hitler.

      Evil is commonplace. It’s natural and healthy to laugh at it. Get over yourself.

    Is anyone else getting sick of disgruntled or banned members? There are some members who probably shouldn’t have been banned, I hope their appeals are being taken seriously. Perhaps these issues can be more fully discussed in other discussion boards. I hope this blog will continue to be updates on the status of There improvement/updates.

    But I hope you’re not spending too much time on this, Michael, you’ve got systems set up to keep griefers and kids out of There. A few will always game the system, accept this and move on. Serve the loyal, paying members already in There, complete tweaking the world so it can be opened to new members, and work on marketing strategies to attract noobies.

    Thanks for all you do. I’m having a blast being back in There: playing cards, visiting favorite places, doing CCR (thanks, Emma and _Phantom!) and just reveling in reconnecting with old friends and making new ones.

    Peace, Jane_Austen

    P.S. I’m still getting lots of “There not responding” and crashing don’t know if this is because I have a very large inventory or ??? Can’t participate in Francis Seven’s Tiki talk trivia!

    i try to get back on there.com lol there what me to pay again being on there 4 years
    i mail the new there never got no answer back how rude is that …………….katelan2222 ๐Ÿ˜ฆ ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    • #25 by ImageMaker on 2012.03.26 - 10:08 am

      So… You haven’t paid attention to anything that’s been posted here over the past seven or eight months concerning how everyone has to pay a monthly subscription — which has led There to post a profit for the first time in its history. How they have a staff of three (and a part-timer) trying to do everything, which sometimes results in no response to questions that have been very effectively answered many times since the idea of re-opening was floated.

      Or did you just come here to try to draw people to IMVU? I, personally, don’t like the direction IMVU is going, and consider many aspects of that system “broken” — but even if it were good on all levels, it’s still just a chat system with graphics, not a virtual world like There. Not at all the same…

      • #26 by NightshadeCX5 on 2012.04.02 - 8:35 am

        Yeah she (katelan2222) doesn’t pay attention to anything, shes a scam artist, caught me for โ‚ฌ1200 and a lot more…

  16. #30 by max1369 on 2012.03.25 - 1:25 pm

    yes that is a joke on ban people

  17. #31 by Elizabeth on 2012.03.25 - 12:47 pm

    Very Funny. was that a joke on people who don’t get why they are banned? Or did an previously banned member actually appeal this way?

  18. #32 by max1369 on 2012.03.25 - 9:39 am

    for all the ban members please watch the video i posed below

  19. #33 by alan4984 on 2012.03.25 - 6:51 am

    As at Therian and an onversion , I can tell you right now,that Onverse will not put up with the likes of “Hitler” and his “gutter mouth” on Onverse! We are PG 13 here!

  23. #37 by shanghei on 2012.03.24 - 5:29 pm

    i “liked” the post, because it so accurately depicts the mentality of a very few i have seen having a rant in forums and groups about their banned status… i am just glad for others, who do not have this attitude, that if they fall under the criteria for reconsideration, they won’t be judged based on people like this.

    I am trying my best, in being an adult woman of the Jewish faith not to use ( excuse the pun here) any “unorthodox” words here. Let’s just say I am distressingly insulted even though this was not directed towards me, but yourself, Mr. Wilson.

    Even if this inhuman specimen was not banned before, I would find it easy an request that this would be done immediately.

    As a tiny voice of the “Chosen People” I say “good riddance” to this angry antisemitic inhuman specimen, who has insulted everyone by this puerile temper tantrum.

  35. #50 by Jonathan5k2006 on 2012.03.24 - 10:02 am

    Its funny but idiotic – Why have they braught Miserygoddess aka someone whoes a nice person into this and other people? Just because there band…. the dispute is between M. Wilson and Mr . Banned.
