ProMasterForum.com and getting #HateTrolled

So earlier today I was attacked by a moderator on promasterforum.com. He wrote a paragraph about how awful my video was. For no other reason other than to be mean. (It was a YouTube Live video and was a little choppy). His comments were unnecessary. A user replied explaining it was a YouTube Live video. I replied and told him to be nice. He responded with a PM (private message that other forum members can’t see), a threat that if I stuck up for myself again he would ban me from the site. Then he posted another public (in the forum) insult. For no reason- just being mean. I thought it was important and right to screenshot what he had PM’d me and share it with the thread (a thread that I started about my own Camping Van, which is what one of the subjects of the forum is about) so that other members could see that I was randomly being bullied. Only 4 people saw my repost before the guy banned me (calling me names in the process.) Those 4 people emailed me and told me that what he/they did was bullsh*t and they are very disappointed. I live taped the whole thread so that maybe an actual owner of the forum can see what he did. It was really out of line and spiteful. So, @PromasterForum.com are you going to let moderators bully your users?
Photos are in chronological order.
Thank you to “nebulight” for trying to help/explain.
“KeepOnVanning”, you should be ashamed of yourself. I know I’m not the first person you’ve done this to. You make the Forum/Domain itself look bad when you behave like this.

So I again ask: Is it ok for moderators to shut user’s accounts down because the user spoke up when bullied?

 

Attacking me for no reason.
A nice forum user politely explaining video quality…
@keeponvaning defending his right to keep being a jerk.
Me defending myself and asking troll to try and be nice.
The PM to me with a threat, lol. (I posted this in the forum so everyone could see the #bullying.)
Said Troll deleting my account. (Look closely at the reason. How juvenile, lol!)

 

Yes- I sent a message to the webmaster, as did a few other users. But if a webmaster/owner gives moderators with bad attitudes this level of allowances, then I don’t think complaints to the webmaster/domain owner would make a difference. And who knows, he may be the same person.

#Trolling and #OnLineBullying is getting out of control.

And so it begins. Net Neutrality. RIP FOS.

Net Neutrality 2018

 

I don’t think this will happen. But it’s still creepy to think that some want this to happen. Think of all the Porn you will no longer to be able to search for and watch. Yeah, think about that, you horny f*ckers.

#LoveMail & finally giving a tour of my new #VanLife van!

So I’ve gotten about 100 emails asking me when I’m going to do the big reveal on my awesome new custom camer van and its Sportsmobile top. Well, tomorrow may be the day. There are still a few esthetic things and functional things to get done this weekend, but I’m going to show it anyway, and then do new videos when new things are completed.

I hope you like it. I’m proud to say we used about 70% reclaimed wood from floor to ceiling, cabinets, trim and other little places.

Saturday, my buddy Howie from @HowieBuildsVans is going to install the hand-pump kitchen faucet. And I’m gonna put all the “pop-a-xxx” things I just got from @Amazon (and love) in too.

#SimpleVanLife

Semi Truck driver goes nuts on the highway. Semi Truck Hit & Run.

So before I did my van build-out, I was involved in a road rage incident with an 80,000 lb 18-wheeler. He did the same to another driver after me, but I was able to follow him for 30 cat/mouse miles until the police got him and immediately arrested him. His POS rig and trailer were impounded and he went to jail.

Talking to the guy who built my van!

Same old me, but I got the guy who built my van to do a “Sitting Down with VocalVirgo” chat about what it was like to build my van. This was fun. He used to do this in the 90’s and 00’s. Mine was the first van he’s done since, and now he wants to start doing them again because he’s a big supporter of the #VanLife.
