At the risk of causing some dissension...which I am loathe to do...I would like Admin or someone that knows to tell me why a long standing member and contributor to all things Oka has been blocked from this site.....if its a personal issue then it shouldnt flow over to a public/member Forum.
I am referring in particular to *******...***** ********* who runs * FB site....*****.
I dont consider the FB site or any other to be a conflict of interest....on the contrary it complements this site.
I just cant see any logical reason for the blockage...unless it was an error...?
Thanks. Pete.

No offense intended Pete.

However this “pawn game” has been going on for months. The fellow can call and represent himself.

At least we have cleared the air here ;)

There is, and was, a social component to this forum. But FB is more generally social and thinner on technical.

I cannot post much more on the specific reasoning.

By pure chance, I just spoke to this person on the phone on an unrelated matter.
He claims that he has no idea why he was banned and has tried unsuccessfully to contact someone to find out.
Cheers,
Peter

Well… I am confident I can safely add a new user… but not so much on more advanced efforts.


Historically…
The idea of an embassy and emissaries in the olden days as a way for governments and states to communicate predates radio and internet. The idea of travelling the Silk Road, or Myan and Aztec trails, or Burke-n-Wills or Lewis-n-Clarke trails in an OKA is also compelling.

For those that want to be in an emissary role, i am disinclined to roll back communication to wax seals and pony express. So…just have the fellow in question reach out directly. FCS- there are at least four of you now helping in the emissary role… so if you all provide the phone number to him then he should be able to do this himself.

Otherwise it is becoming like the Seventh Day Adventists (or insert another sect here) banging on my door tell me what God wants… As I tell them, “If the Bloke upstairs wants to talk, have him come to mine directly. If we were living before Martin Luther, then I would use the Pope as the conduit to him.”

Please advise if my position is unclear, or is too nuanced.

Please SMS the number or post it here. My mobile is at the bottom of my posts, under the link that does not work any more.

I had a call from David.

I also had 1/2 dozen calls from Mort. 3 where he could hear me, 2 where neither could hear and a single shoddy one where he said he would be back in the big smoke in a couple of weeks.
