    I think the salad dressing containing vinegar did a better job. I wasn't there to see the whole thing through. I was outside doubled over with laughter.

    As for the rest of his posts. Point taken. Thanks for pointing it out to me.
    I certaintly did not see it..
    Was it adressed to me then?

    Just curious. If so I'd like to know what he wrote..

    god for bid he offended anyone.

    I guess people are not entitled to express ones opinion any more, take it with a grain of salt i say.

    What ever does not kill you only makes you stronger. :)

    People are way to sensitive. I for one would have enjoyed what was said to learn more. If a profanity was made then perhaps it should have been blanked out not removed the entire post like on other forums.

    How about how not to get one in the first place? When I did it about five years ago, I had just switched my configuration around, I heard a couple of "blubs" during the first 20 minutes of the dive and put it down to the new hose configuration and ended up with a mouthful. If you hear ANYTHING unusual, bail off the thing and figure out what's going on.

    Thanks for pointing this info out. We never stop learning.
    It's good to be reminded once in a while that these RB's are not toys.
    Now i've had the misfortune to experience one, I side-mounted my Classic KISS it Dived beautifully BTW but my problem was 2 reasons for its failure 1: My KISS BOV was at its end of its working life & failing during the Dive (it did pass pos/negs) i was getting some gurgling but needing to descend i went head down Bad Move kept my kool Bailed to bailout Reg ascended calmly then coughed my little heart out all the way home. I lost my voice & could not eat or (drink much) for one week.
    2: I should not have Dived as i knew my OCBOV was a bit iffy but after pulling it apart & reassembling it a few times i though it would last. Again Bad Move, should not have Dived.

    OFF TOPIC - Now Gee what's happening hear Banning one of the Very Knowledgeable CCR Divers is IMO also a Very Bad Move.
    We have so many new CCR users & you can only learn so much from Books & net Articles but knowledge from one of the early CCR Boys is Priceless.

    Both caustic burns I have suffered, occurred topside. Once demonstrating how an EAC works to a known troublemaker on this forum, and the second was assisting someone on a dive boat who had catastrophically flooded their unit.

    Well while very knowledgeable especially in regards to the latest course of argumentation certaintly might be argued, I have nothing against brining him back.
    In the meanwhile I got a hint what he had posted and in fact it was adressed to me.. I can take it, I don't get offended..
    Why would I care what an Aussie throws at me anyways

    So if I have a say in it.. Bring him back
