Jimmy Z




Almost everyday, I like to read posts (I don't post much) and realized I haven't seen any from Jimmy Z; I know he's in Florida for the winter and I thought he would be back to the OBX by now. I tried searching the forum and didn't see anything. Where is Jimmy Z?

RE: Jimmy Z




Jimmy Z got sick of the trolls that turn every single post into something political or bashing other people and decided to take a break from the board. We miss him.

Bummer! That's a shame. This used to be such a great place. I hope he doesn't take a long break.


RE: Jimmy Z




Me to! I loved his daily pictures but maybe it became more of a chore to post every day. I think he was tough enough to get past those disruptions. Hope he comes back soon!


RE: Jimmy Z




Jimmy usually arrives to SS in May. I’d suspect you’ll see his beach photos when he does

He posted a thread saying he was leaving (because of the trolling, negativity, and politics), but then deleted it. He hasn't logged on since 4/8. Unfortunately, we've lost several valued users.

Edit:
Logging back in to correct some misinformation I posted. JimmyZ did NOT delete his goodbye post. It was either 5 flagged or deleted in some other way. Very sad in any case, but kind of enforces the decision.

Wishing everyone a great summer.

Yes, and some posters have to bring the crap up on a happy Birthday post...



RE: Jimmy Z




Yeah, hopefully when he returns in May, then he might post from SS. BUT I felt rather similarly last Fall and Winter. The political and sheer madness posts have gotten out of hand, especially with Will taking a powder all year long.


RE: Jimmy Z




Simple SPQ... go back, flag and ignore the trolls.


RE: Jimmy Z




Yup. He said he was done.

We lost a good one.

In no small part because Greg and I have wildly different world views.

The lack of leadership is interesting.

If this place wants to be an echo chamber you have to ban folks.

Go breitbart and Tucker Carlson hard right and ban myself and others, or go left ban the antivaxxers.

Until then this is all we have.

.....and most every other post.......keyboard warriors........

Thanks Jimmy for all you do.

You had posted that no one had said Happy Birthday, so I posted a possible reason. That thread was much lighter than previous years.

Oh well, like I said, it's really not worth the hassle anymore. Someone will always just jump on anything you post.


RE: Jimmy Z




Off topic, but it is Autism Awareness Month... ABC's "The Good Doctor" episode of last night, I thought, did an excellent job of speaking to many of our "differences" and the stuff that really matters. smiley

I lack your character and good temperament.

I have neither the time or patience to go off on the covid perspective thread.

You’ve done all you can.


RE: Jimmy Z




This is sad. I joined this group almost 10 years ago on our first trip to OBX, literally on the heels of Irene. We have returned two more times, 2015 and in 2020 for four weeks. Definitely more of a lurker than a poster, but have to say the last couple of years, there have been some real jerks on this site. I was personally attacked in a rather crude way last summer, Fortunately, the troll was quickly banished Folks like Jimmy Z along with many others, have performed a real service here to vacationers both frequent and infrequent. Last summer, every time we drove from our rental in Duck through SS, I wondered which walkway was Jimmy Z taking those daily shots from. I bet I am not the only one.

You are correct! I am always looking for Jimmy Z’s place when I drive to and from SS.

Looks like Jimmy may be getting a lot of company


RE: Jimmy Z




I have been going to OBX almost every yr since 1994. I rarely post anything here but read posts almost every day. I am Cruise DIrector Julie of our group and have gotten most of my ideas here...most notably kayaking in alligator river...Our group has had years of enjoyment reminiscing about me being stuck in the trees...Most people on here are amazingly helpful and knowledgeable....I scroll past those that are trying to start an argument. Years ago they was another site similar to this one that disappeared after several yrs of internal arguing. I would hate to see Will pull the plug on this site for the same reason.

I think someone should bump butter roast....never an argument there!


RE: Jimmy Z




I am not even sure Ali is a real person. I mean the person on the other end is real, but yeah, that persona is just a troll and should not be fed in any way.

I would say do the Gang of 5 on every post, but he has already changes names a number of times.

It is sad, I looked forward to the Jimmy Z pic of the day.

NOT being a keyboard warrior, just politely letting you know it is now Autism Acceptance Month. (PC folks use red and gold infinity, not puzzle pieces or blue). I'm happy with awareness, acceptance, hiring... :-)


RE: Jimmy Z




I can't believe I joined 11 years ago! So different back then, so many more posts and discussions, definitely not the same but so thankful for all the people I have met and become friends with because of this board.

Been here since 2004, but I know I was here a lot longer. Prior to about that point you did not have to have a formal account.

This has always been an issue but the last few years it has gotten a lot worse.
