The guy throws a fit about Chic Fil A threads and then proceeds to bump Chic Fil A threads that were several months old that had nothing to do with the CFA controversy.
Regardless that is not what he was banned for from what I remember.
Out of curiosity, do you get a lot of strangers to follow your orders on message boards?
This is the most whining from BNers since they got news of their bowl ban.
No that was just a ruse. It was really to get rid of Michigan fans.
At this point I would like to change my vote for thread of the year to this one.
No I did not lose a sig bet, but I am really really really ridiculously good looking.
Quite a few, actually. Now go make me a sandwich.

Still waiting to hear why he was banned.
Check out my new signature.
Our quarterback does front flips, suck it.
mkillian247 on twitter..... I say a lot of stuff you wont care about.
http://247sports.com/Board/30/ITT-Homophobes-get-my-thread-locked-11125829/1 - ITT he calls people who support Chik Fil A homophobes (which, I happen to think namecalling from site moderators, who should be held to a higher standard of conduct with the customers, is grounds enough to get rid of them)
http://247sports.com/Board/30/Apparently-we-cant-discuss-this-issue-like-adults-10946632/1 - ITT he calls people who disagree with his agenda mouthbreathers (as a mod, he shouldn't be talking to customers like that).The title of his thread is snotty and doesn't reflect the conduct of a professional.
http://247sports.com/Board/30/Boston-mayor-tells-Chick-fil-A-to-stay-out-10999874/4 - ITT, he blasts people who think differently than he does:
"6. As I have stated in numerous threads, intolerance runs both ways. For those who say CFA is wrong for not supporting gay marriage, then how can you say a city trying to block a company for it's views is good or meritous? One is just as wrong as the other. If we continue to allow such things, we are defaming our own Constitution and Bill of Rights. Each individual has his or her rights to believe what they want to believe. These public displays of personal belief just further muddy the PC water."
Buttsnake's response: "Except your side is trying to limit the choices of others that they themselves already have. It's intolerance. You're free to have your intolerant views, just don't get mad when the rest of the country doesn't buy your bullshit.
Like civil rights, women's suffrage, etc., your side is going to come out on the losing side of this, and the history books aren't going to be so kind to you." (Basically, he's calling the customer's political views intolerant and says the customer's beliefs are bullshit, which is hardly professional conduct).
"Sad." (talking about a link he posted saying that a Chik Fil A spokesperson died as the company was battling controversy)
Buttsnake's response: "I blame God." (mocking the religious beliefs of at least half of 247sports' customers, which is a major league no-no to any customer relations person who isn't a complete dumbass.)
YET ANOTHER EXAMPLE:
There have been several occasions where Buttsnake (and other scUM mods) would pinch premium information from other sites without permission and freely give it to everyone on their site. They even took a potshot at one of the writers on USC's site. They are banhappy towards anyone that disagrees with a member of their site and have probably been complained about on more than several occasions.
To conclude, if you're a mod, you are supposed to hold yourself to a higher standard of conduct when talking to customers. Those snotty little pissants don't act in such a way. To be honest, I'm surprised that some of them still have jobs as board moderators. I'm not saying all of your mods are bad, but there have been several displays of poor conduct from at least a few of your mods. A long story short, it doesn't surprise me in the least that one of them is banned. He kept pushing his agenda and someone probably got sick of having to tell him to back off. Regardless, the end result is a positive for all of us. That person had no business being a mod, especially with intolerant and degrading remarks toward people who disagree with his agenda.
First, Butte was not a mod on tBB. I know a lot a people complain about mod behavior on Michigan's site, but I give them the benefit of the doubt because there is no premium board. They do their best to keep the only Michigan board on the network troll free. I'm sure it leads to more bans than necessary, but it is better than the alternative for Michigan fans.
As for mod behavior, based on the posts of plenty of tBB mods I would say Butte was not doing anything out of the ordinary. Hell, I was banned shortly by a new mod who then went back to BN and bragged about it. Do you think that is appropriate behavior because 247 didn't have a problem with it.
I'm still waiting for Aussie or someone else to tell me why he was banned. Until that happens, everything is speculation according to Aussie.
Lets keep this about Devidee
C_wood can't help it.
He's a scientist.
For the record -- As I recall, tBB went VIP because it was getting rocked (particularly overnight) by spam. Staff and moderators could either waste their time each day deleting those threads or essentially filter them out by making the board accessible to VIP posters.
I've never quite understood this constant comment from you. I'd love an explanation before Dymonte enrolls.
Just making sure everyone is aware that you are a scientist.
I know you rarely mention it.
You quite FOS, I hope you know this.
The whole premium issue was overblown, and created because of false rumors by BN posters and USC fans with their panties in a bunch.
And we ban trolls, as in accordance with our guidelines. Don't like our rules, don't visit our board. Least we allow people on our board, the Front Row is so afraid of different views, they don't even allow other visitors without them paying.
And I am not a mod on this board, so I will act as I please. Don't like it, too darn bad.
Go Blue and Go Titans!
C_woodson doesn't know how to keep things about the topic at hand. Nor does he know how to honor a bet. However, he has no problem causing problems wherever he is.
i think Butte gave me my food at the pickup window at chic-fil-a the other night.. the waffle fries were off the chain.. must be working a lot...
He doesn't leave until Jan. 6
People think his best trolls are on Michigan fans, but really are on his own fanbase.
Well this is coming from a Michigan fan and a betting man. I really hate to see Devidee leave I enjoyed his posts(trolls)they were usually good for a laugh, but a bet is a bet. Oh and btw I didnt even know that tbb went VIP.
But yet one of your posters C_woodson made a bet with a buckeye fan and he welched.
If he did, theb he is to shame. A bet is a bet and I have honored every single bet I have made.
He bet azvalleybuckeye $1000 that he lost which many people on bucknuts can back me up on this comment and never honored the bet. Regardless of what the bet was for if the person isn't going to honor it they shouldn't make the bet at all. He then had this long goodbye thread and left bucknuts.
