What a silly thing to do. No one is ever banned "for no apparent reasons."


Colin is the nicest person you can ever meet in person or in a forum. If he was banned, it was for no good reason I'm sure.

There is a member search function. I believe you will discover, if you check the correct spelling, that only one of the above (incorrectly spelled), is not on that list of registered users. I couldn't find anyone called "etc etc."

Javi just posted after being away on holiday. Some others have "visited" within the past 48 hours.

Just sayin'.'

Sorry to carolynlm for the wrong spelling.

It does not take one to have a degree in PhD to know what I meant.

Not really.
To the Tour Opening in Belho Horizonte I didn't even take my camera to the concert.
On the second show in Goiania I took around 40 pics, not much for a 160 minute long show.
For the Fortaleza concert I was front row so I took a lot of pics, but I've enjoyed the concert a lot anyway.

If the tour ever stops in Glasgow, you have to attend, Pat!

Nothing personal there; it's just that usernames are spelled in very particular ways, if one is doing a search.

It was tongue-in-cheek, and I apologize if it was taken personally. It's just that there has been a sense of general panic that is perhaps over-the-top, if you do a search. It really wasn't directed at you, Jove, at all. You happened to be the one who said it is all. It's just "in the air." And I'm sorry if you felt offended, as that was not my intention.

It's just thst I would just like folks to chill a bit, and wait up. This is a good place, and we've been traumatized lately by real-world tragedy, so people are tending to freak out at things that appear to be what they may not be. Happens.

At least two mentioned members, and I haven't checked on all who were mentioned, were lurking about this past morning: they must have their "lurking settings" to "on," I guess, but haven't posted. I don't think one can do that if you cannot log in; you wouldn't be recorded by the computer. So, things are not always as they appear to be.

Javi: professional quality photographs! Congrats on a great job! And on having a swingin' time! :smt006

Banned people can login and it is then when the system tells them that they are banned. But then, their user data is updated at that moment.

Re: Where's Javilu been?

Banned? Really? There are people who have been on this board forever and now they are not allowed to log in? We don't have to all get along (if you can't get along with me, you have a problem), but there's room here for anyone who is an Elvis fan providing they don't go to extremes to break the rules. We've lost some very good members over the years. I didn't always agree with their posts, but it made for some entertaining reading.

Aren't we overdoing it just a tad?

Maybe they have their settings set to automatically log in so the information would be filled in by the cookies on their computers, And they are still on the members list because their ban isn`t permanent they are banned for 2 weeks, I believe they are still having a swinging time though and continue to monkey around :wink:

You are welcome and yes I would love to see more videos like that :) .

Nice camera you have btw, I used to have a Lumix FZ38 but recently upgraded to a Samsung nx1000 and I also have an Olympus SZ-30MR for snapshots as the Samsung is a bit big to carry round in your pocket, Keep taking those great photo`s you have a steady hand and your framing is always spot on .

I have spent the most amazing 10 days of my life in Brazil.
Been to Belo Horizonte, Goiania and Fortaleza.
Seen 3 Paul McCartney concerts, 1 soundcheck and seen him going in and out of the hotels several times.


Javilu, hombre, vaya buena vida la tuya. Sana envidia al ver los hermosos lugares que recorres, la buena compañía y la inmensa suerte de estar cerca de Paul (esperamos ver más videos).

My camera is a Lumix FZ100. Most pics come out with a lot of noise when not using a flash but that's probably because I have to learn how to configure the manual controls.
Thanks Alan!
