I once got banned forever for telling a joke.

I thought it would be a new start. Turning the page and all that.

4 months later I came crawling back.

They let you back in 4 months after a life ban ? Shocking!
I was barred from TMF a few times, mainly for giving people advice involving sex and travel...
I'm much older and mellower now.

It must have been quite some joke.... or quite some failure of their sense of humour.

Oooh, I thought this was going to be something about getting someone to delete your browser history. ;)

I could tell you. :| I recently had the unrewarding job of getting a number of somewhat dodgy Flickr accounts deleted, after a friend's husband died. The pictures were not so much obscene as just plain weird (hey, I have a broad mind), but the private in-group email conversations that he'd been holding with his "admirers" were right off the edge.

I had the good luck to stumble across the passwords for some of these accounts, so I was able to delete them by using the departed's logins. But for the others, Flickr refused to let me touch them unless I produced a death certificate. And I wasn't going to put the grieving widow and children through that. The last I heard, the pictures were still up there.

That's a good idea.

I have a Facebook contact who recently received birthday congratulations from several 'friends' - none of whom could have known that this person died in 2018 . . .

Yes I regularly see contacts on Linkedin who I know have been dead for years get "congrats on the work anniversary" from ex-colleagues.

I guess we'll just have to get used to seeing online "shadows" of the departed, as the chances of there being a common way of notification or deletion across all the platforms is vanishingly slim.

Well, to be fair to the Fool, it was probably the straw that broke the moderator's back. I'd been pushing my luck for some time.

Go on, tell it again, on here, you can't leave us hanging...

Well you know the funny thing is it upset some of the ladies on the Fool, but it also upset a lot more blokes who, at the time, seemed to thrive on being upset. They were outraged at everything....

The even funnier thing was that I'd first heard the joke being told by a female comedian (Joan Rivers FWIW) on a television broadcast, but in the reverse.

No-one seemed to upset by it.

Anyway, it was along the lines of a person of a certain sex only existing for the purpose of being a life support system for their genitals........ But in much cruder terms :D

That's not a joke but a truism :lol:

I used to love Joan Rivers.

I am going to post a hard brainteaser on the puzzles board to see whether this coaxes him back.

Prolific poster Dod101 hasn't posted for two weeks . . .

Hope it's just because he is on holiday, or something like that.
