Banned.......Again
« on: January 07, 2016, 06:58:59 PM »
As some of you know I am active on several sites.  Well, after bringing up the new digital model smokers from SI, spreading the gospel so to speak, I was banned. I won't mention the site; not worth it (it is the second site I have been banned from). And all my previous posts regarding Smokin-it and another well known smoker as well as my other equipment have been removed.  Such is life.

Sounds like you hit a nerve and won!

Sort of like arguing politics at times:)  You just get censored to the Siberia.   

I call your removal a win.

Way to go, Dave!  You know you're making an impact when they ban you!  Although I haven't joined your "banned" club, I've been warned several times! >:(

Do you find that there is a lot more negativity on that site in general? Or are they just anti-electric smoker? I know there can be a lot of snootiness in the BBQ world. This forum is really positive, and friendly to other opinions and equipment. Hope that never changes. I've read comments sections on various popular BBQ sites, and have been shocked at the level of brutality.

I feel like it's because we've all been "enlightened" by our experience with the SI, to the point that we don't really have to "defend" it. The BBQ purists are missing out on a great tool. Coming from a background of following more BBQ "snootiness" myself, I'm happy to be free of that.

Kari-No hostility at all. I think it had more to do with my low participation over the last few years. Essentially my post must have been interpreted as an unsolicited commercial or sales pitch. So I can live with it and I understand having to enforce forum rules. What really hurt was calling it spam. spam is one of my favorite foods. Dave

For those of you who don't know, Dave is one of the early "founding members" here (if not the earliest), and spends a lot of time stalking the various forums, pushing the SI cause!  He is a great asset here, and a friend.  Thanks for what you do, buddy!

I am happy to say that Dave helped open my eyes to Smokin-It on another forum.

I almost bought a Masterbuilt, and am so glad that I did not.

I had never even heard about SI and wasn't planning on spending that much money on a smoker. But after doing a comparison, the choice was pretty easy.

And I will say that Dave presents the options well. He just urges people to take a look at the SI's and make their own decisions.

I have thanked you Dave a few times already, but every time I fire up my my steel-boxed friend I am happy you steered me away from that plastic and cheap metal alternative.

I guess it is that forum's loss. Too bad for the other participants, whose exposure to a variety of equipment and opinions has been censored.
