Not cool......shows poor leadership.....shows double standards.....
Historically when one member constantly attacks another member, the moderators step in to moderate. lean forward over the front wheel, hang on to the bars, and squeeze the we go....

When other BARFers display similar behavior we traditionally tell them to take it to PM's and / or place the other member on their Ignore List. Since you cannot place Budman on ignore, your situation must be handled differently.

To state the obvious, this situation is different in that you repeatedly come at Budman. The moderators have consistently felt that you deserved a suspension for each of your previous comments attacking Bud. In each case Bud told us not to suspend you. At my urging, Bud has said that he won't overrule us again. To be completely transparent, I've consistently supported banning you for your behavior towards him.

Formal Admin Request:
Take it to PM's, and put Bud on your virtual Ignore List. Stop responding to his posts directly (quoting him) or indirectly (our discretion / interpretation).

Failure to abide by this 'request' will result in further action. We're working outside the box here, and I'll push for bypassing the normal suspension tiers.

You aren't getting special treatment here. In an effort to make barf better, in the last 6mo we've begun to take special steps on a couple members that weren't getting the message. We've attempted to get you to stop attacking Bud more than a few times.

Don't PM me or any other moderator. Work this out with Bud via PM's. No more public interactions with him.
A superior rider uses superior judgment to avoid situations that require superior skill.
