The rules of goodbye Gene

I’m pretty ok with almost anything on this site- as long as you don’t attack each other personally- or, misrepresent yourself.

That means no posting under multiple names.

Frequent commenter Gene has of late chosen to sign as a variation on my name- or Gene…..

I’ve warned him twice- he’s continued- so I blasted away 20 comments. He does it again- it’ll be 40- until he’s gone.

Thanks to the rest of you- most of his comments were being thumbed down off the comments anyway- so, it shouldn’t be a big loss.

Thank you all- for continuing the discussion.

Your forum, your rules. But, I like Gene. And I open his comments back up to read them.


It was a joke. For crying out loud – I put a last name of Esrauri, a combination of the famous Davids on here, Esrati and Lauri. I should have never put David Esrauri, rather Gene Esrauri. I am going to legally change my last name to Esrauri, becasue the combo of these two fellas living in a make-believe world makes me want to live in the same world.

I just think it is funny these two want to make things more complicated, take other people’s money and demand shit of people to make the world  better, all the while never holding anyone accountable that make less than 50k per year. According to Davey Boy One and Two, it is always the rich folks fault. Thank God I am moving out of Dayton. They just piss away my tax dollars, you know, the money I earn so people like them can piss it away. I work for liberals and their dreams.


Hunter was right, David Esrati does not have a sense of humor. Thanks for the insight Greg.

David Lauri

Eh, if I ever did marry David Esrati, we wouldn’t be doing something cutesy like combining our last names to come up with a new one.  I plan on keeping my name should I ever get married.


Should have gone with Laurati as a last name. And you two are getting married? Wow, talk about some news…..

Laurati? Isn’t that the special at Starbucks this week? I dunno Gene, I’m just not feelin’ it for your new last name, maybe a line of designer pants though… Genes Laurati, yeah… left back pocket is actually a cutout to expose the butt tattoo. I’m feelin’ it… Oh, I mean I’m seein’ it, well you know.

David, What happened to the little thumbs up/down thingy after each post?  Did you take it down?

And why am I having to type in my name every time I leave a post?  I thought you had cookies for that.
