    I hate that saying but it fits this thread.

    Anybody else noticed how quiet the forum has been since Raj was banned?

    He might be a professional PITA but he certainly engenders "debate" when he's active.

    Prefer the much more respectful and thoughtful debate there has been recently.

    No question about the debate being more subdued and less abrasive lately. Most of us are willing and able to appreciate differing opinions without flaming the thread.

    It's just soooo quiet at present i think it needs an infusion of passion.

    Perhaps not Raj's brand of passion though.

    Lol yeah it's a bit quiet, but Raj lacked respect of other forum members opinions & played the keyboard warrior.

    He's either playing Call Of Duty or polishing his Chevy badged Daewoo Matiz.

    That is a very gentleman like way to put it Calaber considering the way he had replied to you several times in different threads.

    Also a very gentleman like way to put things Risky and absolutely spot on too.


    I usually check in on a daily basis to see what is going on and I have noticed that the forum has been a lot quieter lately.

    He was very good at sparking discussion and outlining alternative points of view to the majority.I have to say, he generally articulates his point of view quite well.

    A bit of excitement on the forum is good. JC is much more 'alive' than other forums at the moment, and I think that has a lot to do with the amount of off topic discussion. Definitely one of JC's strengths.

    I will just tell it how I saw Raj myself:
    Raj was the most arrogant, self centred, egotistical, know it all arse hat on the forum, with a masters degree as a keyboard warrior and troll.
    His specialty was to troll and create drama and disagreements in threads and basically just stir up ****.
    If you had a different opinion to him, you had to strap yourself into your seat with a harness and hold on if you posted in the same thread, because you new there would be a tirade of "RAJ FACTS & KNOWLEDGE" coming any time soon.
    There was nothing you could post, that would have him understand your opinion or see the point you were trying to make if it didn't align with his way of thinking.
    Basically it was I'm right, you're wrong and you were just stupid with him, there was no inbetween.
    One other thing:
    I had been directed to the forum (By Googling Stuff) before joining up and becoming a member, and you know what really stands out the most to me about Raj:
    I have never seen a post from him where he had offered any advice to help resolve any mechanical or electrical type issues that other members were having, like I have already said: He was just a "keyboard warrior and troll"
    Good riddance to you Raj and here is my send off salute: :upyours: and you can :kissmy: our collective asses.

    heh, didn't notice he was gone - tbh most of his arguments fell in a heap with a stiff breeze.

    I've been as diplomatic as possible with my comments because I wanted the thread to avoid being closed.

    Yeah, there were a few times Raj really rankled me with comments like "you must be blind" or "you're wrong" when I expressed opinions based on personal experience.

    To his credit there were areas where he obviously knew his stuff such as IT but I suspect his technical knowledge when it came to cars wouldn't fill a thimble.

    In another thread recently I said that some forum members needed to remember that they were not the font of all knowledge. That comment was aimed squarely at Raj.

    I hope his demise doesn't see the forum fade because strong discussion and sound communication needs opposing views to flourish and grow.

    It also needs patience and appreciation that differing views are what makes forums like this work. I think the rest of us understand that.

    I don’t care how literate or knowledgeable he may have been, but him, with a group at a pub or a BBQ, how much tolerance would be shown to some-one with such antagonistic views and lack of respect before he would be conversing with his shadow, or in the street wondering why his face hurts.
    I am not condoning drunken violent behaviour ...... just sayin’.

    How many of those cards are there in a Monopoly game because I think Raj/CSP has already used them all up.

    he was always argumentative and just said stuff without sourced. if you countered it he'd come back with where are your sources? how could you possibly say something like that? (acting all "how dare you" super offended) then if you posted sources he ignored that post. he just wanted a platform to put his ideas out, not have meaningful arguments over things. can't stand that.

    he also liked dissing people but couldn't take it in return, i saw these old threads where he copped some flak and said "now i know why i don't come here often, i'm not coming back again"

    I understand he also had a habit of reporting posts where he felt put out. It must have annoyed the moderators a bit.

    I missed his last post (the one apparently AFTER the Last Post pic) but I gather he must have seen the storm clouds coming and known he was about to be banned.

    With his previous track record, I don't understand why he would behave in a manner that was guaranteed to see the ban stick come out. Masochist maybe?

    Ah, well - to quote Ned Kelly - "such is life."

    it's a shame because we're a small community already and his posts in LAN section were helpful

    See Raj, I told you that would happen. Why do you waste your time with your mediocre experiments? You may as well face up to the fact that I'm always right, and you're not!
