    She looks like she enjoys a good tug-o-war game. Probably has a lot of stamina too.

    Does your Pit tear her toys apart ? My male does, no matter what I buy lol He also crushes tennis balls, they don't even last 3 minutes, and the two inch thick tug ropes get shredded within a week.

    I used to have a Pit/Mastiff mix that would chew, spindle, and mutilate Stainless Steel bowls. It was his favorite pastime.
    I hollowed out the 16" wide stump of a tree that I had cut down and sunk his bowl down into the hollow, screwing the lip of the bowl down into the stump. He just thought it was another toy, or a challenge.
    In a week and a half, he chewed the stump enough to take the top half off (yeah, he chomped/chewed down a tree) and then took another day to remove the bowl from what was left of the top part of the stump.
    At 110 pounds, he scared the crap out of people, but he was mostly mellow.

    Hi Earth, sometimes you need to clean house and do what's best, not only for the site, but also for our members. I cannot comment on Jim yet, most likely later on today, but as far as Duff goes, he left Pure OC, and went to work for HTL, Steve's account info was never deleted, and the day we had the Z77 launch with 4-5 reviews we were hit by a bad malware attack, which was traced back to Steve's account.

    As far as Bill Gates, he was reviewing for Pure OC, but at the same time sending his reviews to another site, which was not the right thing to do, seeing as once we publish, reviews become the property of Pure OC.

    AS far as Jim goes, I can tell you a couple of things, over the last 2 yrs he was warned over 12 times to be careful what he says and post in the forums, we have lost over 20 members due to Jim running his mouth, then last week I received 6 more complaints from members that have been here a long time, they find the crap Jim posts offensive, and there's no way in hell I was going to loose 6 more members, especially seeing as Jim was repeatedly warned to stop

    Another thing had to do with Jim selling damaged products to forum members, recently he sold a member a degraded chip and was not honest about it, and that's not even counting damaged motherboards with bent pins in the socket, as well as damaged PCI-e slots, I have to protect our members. Later on today you'll see another reason that lead to not only Jim being replaced, but also being banned.

  16. The following user thanks Doctor_Death For this above post:

    Wasn't aware of Jim's hardware transactions at all. As for his postings, they never bothered me at all, just for the record. Granted I haven't been very active this last year (anywhere) so I've probably missed a lot. His comments have always been trollish, but it always felt like he was merely playing on a stereotype for fun, that he was never really serious about anything he said.

    I didn't notice Duff was gone until I looked at Jim's profile. And I completely understand why Bill is gone; that **** is just lame.
