  • Banned on Hobart for not endorsing their mig tags in my posts

    It appears that Hobart didn't like my sig line response to their changing the intentions of my posts with hyperlinked key words. That, and they didn't like my disputing Burkelusa's stolen, but for sale, sandblaster plans back in November. These two instances are their sole justification for banning me.

    This was 2 days before the end of my monthly cycle on photobucket. I get about 200 hits from other sites, but the vast majority of these are from the Hobart forums.

    I'd say with 17000 hits on my posts, they could show me a little more respect.

    So anyways, I am not allowed to post over there anymore, and this is why.

    What do you guys think?
    Syncrowave 250DX
    Invison 354MP
    XR Control and 30A

    Airco MED20 feeder
    Thermal Dynamics Cutmaster 81
    Smith O/A rig
    And more machinery than you can shake a 7018 rod at

      Any links contained within my posts which were placed there by ME (and not the board authorities) will be clearly visible as to where they are taking you. I do not endorse Hobart wire feed products and would steer you towards a Thermal Arc, Lincoln, or Miller before ever recommending a Hobart MIG as they are of lower build quality than nearly everything else in their class.
      Geez, Jim, perhaps you expected them to roll out the red carpet & ask you to become a product tester???

      I would imagine Miller would also ban anyone whose sig line read like that (substitute Miller for Hobart).

        Well since you asked, IMHO that statement was a bit over the top concidering that Hobart has always in the past, and continues to now, produce some very nice, affordable equipment, again thats my opinion.
        Regards, George

        Hobart Handler 210 w/DP3035 - Great 240V small Mig
        Hobart Handler 140 - Great 120V Mig
        Hobart Handler EZ125 - IMO the best 120V Flux Core only machine

          I think they will survive without you. Since you asked.

            Without tip-toeing around the issue, I think you are out of line.

                Actually, I was just over on the Hobart site and Fishy Jim's post don't show with the usual "banned" instead of "senior member".

                If you've be banned, sorry but then you have to watch whose pot you piss in. Remember MY house, My rules! It worked for my Dad.

                BTW - I've never had those types of substitutions made on any of my post or show up on posts by others. It could have been a hacker of some sort tweeking your melon.

                  Hackers like to find volatile threads to fool with; it just stirs the pot more. I have seen my user name used to post pretty bad stuff to another board member; fortunately he knew better, but that stuff is not good for the climate.

                    i would be upset about a sig like that too it's their rules if you don't wish to conform you will be asked to leave.

                    life is full of rules you have to follow, you can't drive down the wrong side of the road because you want to....if you do you could face dicipline. same thing here.

                      Jim I have to agree with TIG on this one....**** im NO saint when it comes to sig lines but the fact is that its hobarts site and if you want to play you have to play by their rules.....

                      I want to know what you were expecting with that sig line ?

                      I know that your smart enough to have come up with a better sig line then that and still have gotten your point across....who pissed in your cherieos ?

                          Not to take sides here or anything but you did kind of come out a little harsh in saying that their equip. was low quality on their own website. Even though we all know that it is.

                            Since some of it is the exact same as Miller stuff, what are you saying???
                            I will say one thing about Hobart machines. It's made here and not in
                            Malaysia like the purple one.

                              Scott, you beat me to the punch

                              Amazing, isn't it? We attempt to crush the Vietnamese in the 1960's, and fourty years later we buy welding machines from a country that borders the same Gulf of Thailand.
