On-line retailers that allow you to proceed through the cyber-security maze to get your card authorized before telling you that item is on back-order, tying up your credit limit until who knows when.

The kids are forcing me to go full-tyrant today. I get that it's still early in the week, but this isn't Monday, folks. I gotta say that they're a little more quick to respond to my demands, though. The fear spreads. I am The Ahjumma.

Also, I lost a little bit of patience with a male teacher last week. I didn't blow up at him, but I didn't bother to hide my irritation, either, which he fully and completely deserved, and everyone knows it. Didn't stop him from trying to snub me this morning, though. Not really too sure why he would think I give any fucks about him, especially given how rude he was to me on Friday, but I'm going to be all sugar and spice while he continues to make an ass out of himself. Even in Korea with very few people willing to openly admit to it, shit coming from anyone still stinks, and they'll wrinkle their noses at it all the same even if you force them to do it on the sly.

Come in to work feeling  :smiley:, it's a beautiful fall day.

CT: DMZ teacher, Mr. Kim's father passed away yesterday. ㅠㅠ

ME: That's too bad. I remember he mentioned that his father wasn't doing well.

CT: Yes, and tonight all the teachers will visit his house. Can you come?

Me: (I have no other plans. How long could this take, right?) Sure. Where is it?

CT: Good, we will take Ms. Jo's car. His house is in Gyeongju. (We're in Ulsan ~ 1hour away)

Me: (arghhhhhh) OK...

New mood:  >:( >:( >:(

Guess the mods don't want us voicing our dissatisfaction about the change anymore. Will doing so here in the ranting thread be met with warnings/mutes?

haha, yeah, really.

again, they probably didn't close it to try and aggrevate everyone, but stuff like that would make me even less inclined to pay

I literally cannot access my own content anymore because of the new paywall issue. I uploaded content more than a year ago (the Where's Wally game) and, because I changed schools, I no longer have it on my computer (I thought I did though). Now, I have to pay to access my own content! I don't have money on my Paypal account so I literally can't pay right now (not that I should pay to access my own things o.O).

Is there a way to search waygook.org users by username?

Did a google search and found an old thread.  He doesn't appear to be banned?  Profile looks normal.

Maximmm is over at the Spam site now.  He said he can no longer access waygook because his ip addresses have been banned.

I'm not sure what a banned profile looks like. According to "Jejujohn77-not-weigookin74" weigookin74 was blocked (banned?) and his profile looks the same as maximmm's...

Hmm.  I guess I thought it would resemble a deleted account where the name would be bolded but unable to be clicked on?  Perhaps the IP addresses have been banned like HabsFanInKorea said.

Pretty sure he's talking about Davey closing the complaining thread. Is a bit frustrating when earlier in the day he said we were waiting on Arsalan but that the conversation could continue.

Sure, I'll be as specific as I can be: Whichever mods have locked every thread about the paywall.

maximmm was banned, fyi. Banned accounts look the same as active ones. The user just can't log in.

Oh I guess the thread got too repetitive in a negative way. There seemed to be less discourse and more flaming at that point if I were to guess his reasons.

Well you mentioned users getting warned/muted for expressing their dissatisfaction. So I was thinking more along the lines of that. You may not see the post they were warned for, because if it was really insulting or profane, it was most likely removed. It's okay to be angry or upset and express that, but flaming is still unacceptable.
