I remember him joining the board, loud, opinionated, jumped right the hell in. My kind of person. Since his arrival he has provided this group with many an informative Tiki tidbit. He single handed pulled off a brand new Tiki event in record time bringing many of us together. And who was at the Hukilau who doesn't have a fond memory of Toa in his Glorious Fez and Humu Humu swinging about the dance floor together? He has brought TC artists together for joint products creating more Tiki for us all. Myself I like to stay quiet, aviod alot of critism that way, I appreciatte those willing to risk more. Toa has given us about 1000 ideas, when you put yourself on the line 1000 times you will have a dud or 2. I think there is a thread already(something abot doe I think) if you want to discuss those items in the appropiatte area.
Thanks Toa for all the Tiki you have brought to TC!

Well said McDougal. I agree.

Everybody here voted to give TikiBong a free pass, and I don't think Toa was any worse, but he's not part of the TC click, so he was voted off. You can call it what you want, but Bong was voted on and Toa was voted off.

I hope that saying this doesn't put me in a bad light by everyone. I admit that I haven't been here as long as most, and maybe being a Midwesterner means that I will never truely be accepted by some, but I like it here and don't want to pick fights with anyone. Tiki Central has changed my life in many ways, in fact it is a main factor in my decision to change careers.

I don't know what I'm trying to say really. Maybe just to give Toa a little bit of the Aloha that Bong recieved.

Mahalo.

I have enjoyed many a late night shouts with Toa. And I have never had a problem with anything he has said. I may not agree with his or others opinions, but you know what they say about opinions. I also hope this doesnt oust myself as I really enjoy it here.

What Vote? Should we hold a recount? Hanging Chad perhaps?



If you turn on CNN they are showing airial shots of a rider truck taking the ballots to Hanford's house for recounting.

Whadda ya mean Tiki Toa was voted off. He wasn't voted off any more than Bong was voted on. As much as we want him here, Tiki Toa left on his own accord. Meanwhile Bong is here to stay whether you like it our not. From what I can tell, Toa could stand to learn a few things from Tiki Bong.

From what I can tell, Tiki Toa already ran off on his own.

Nobody here ran him off.

Tiki Toa,

There's a pair of frosty Mai Tai's waiting here for you when you come back...





well, OK, so I drank one. Better hurry up before I have the other...

I'm sorry. I didn't mean to say that I wanted Bong to go away. I was using that example, and I probably shouldn't have. I don't really want anyone to go away. I don't want to stir anything up, and I am glad he is still here.

However, I do agree with you, Toa did leave on his own,and that is a big difference. He, like Bong, is a big kid and if he feels personaly insulted and wants to go, I suppose that is his right.

So I guess I pull back a bit on what I said earlier. I do understand your point.

I think because he lives with me in Wisconsin, and because I was with him at the Paina, that I feel closer to him than most. The Paina really was a great thing and I will always remember him fondly for it. He has always been kind to me and my family, so I feel a touch sad about the whole thing. Mistakes were made, obviously, but he is a good man and I count him among my friends.

Mahalo.

In no way was my little deer story intended to make fun of Tiki Toa. I just contributed what I thought was a funny story to the thread. Boy was I surprised when things went crazy after that.

It seems to me that Tiki Toa has once again created a big drama out of nothing, so he can paint himself as the victim.

Anybody could have started the thread that Toa did and have received the same response.

He shouldn't take it so personally.

Does anyone else see how stupid this whole thing as become. Toa left on his own free will and thats that. Moreover, whats the big deal about the Christmas thread he strated and got "hijacked"? I have seen many threads that he has done the same thing to. I really don't think anyone should worry about it. A) maybe now instead of posting a huge amount of posts he can find a job and B) I'm pretty sure he'll come back as Toa (he seems to love attention) or under another screen name (As he has done this before..at least once).

It would be intresting to know the ratio "old timer" posters that are gone to the "info" he has passed along.

Feel free to bash me now....
