I always enjoy seeing member`s pics. Puts a face to the name and makes BITOG not seem so impersonal.

I like Gearheadtool. He seems like a genuinely nice guy.

Fully agree, But he should have left the girlfriend out, just an easy excuse for sarcastic remarks about her size. But like overkill states maybe he enjoys the attention at the benefit of her.

GHT started me looking at who authored a post before bothering to read it.

After the thread where he posted pics of himself, I never bothered reading his posts, or threads. Nothing against the guy, but there's nothing to be learned from his contributions, and obviously little point in trying to share knowledge with him. It's like pushing a boulder up a hill with a rope.

How long do temp bans usually last on Bitog?

His last posts were 2-27-2013. I guess if he got a month-long ban he wouldn't be back yet, but I don't know it mods on this forum even hand out month-long bans.

When a member is suspended, his name will not show up on the user list.

This is what made me dislike him. He may have not intentionally done this to create a serious problem for other noobs here, but some of his "suggestions" seemed very likely to cause serious damage to vehicles if the unsuspecting believed it was good info. GHT wrote as if he was an "expert" or an authority about certain car maintenance issues. That is dangerous.

Thanks for bringing up this point Overkill.
