I still wonder why I got banned a few years ago?
No Mod owned up to it.
I took a guess that it was because FreeDumb and myself had a falling out after becoming good friends both on and off the Forum. A case of another female (Mod) chiming in on her behalf.


I hardly ever offer 'personal insults' unless its an obvious 'spammer' or 'troll' that turns up out of the blue just to bully someone.
I rarely use 'slang' against someone.

I do have the tendency to bowl Googly's and Wrong'uns, let alone Bouncers & Yorkers - just to rattle a discussion with another angle that is outside the box or circle. But that's me - I look at the subject from all four sides, before coming to a final decision or understanding.


...I do admit that I am the archetypal 'opposite' of It_Is_the_Light. I'm the Bad guy from the Dark Side that has faith in people that they deserve and can deal with the cold, scary, hard 'reality' and 'world' of ...the other side.

I am a racist. But I make sure I am so against 'every race' equally - just to put things into perspective.
It's a case of ...long ago, the lands were all 'one' Supercontinent called Pangaea. Then they 'separated' into many. Until we can accept the 'differences' - we will never see the 'one' again (to which the lands will eventually become one 'supercontinent' again).

Anyway - why was I banned?
Actually, don't bother - that's in the past now.
Good to be back.  Smiley

More strict.  You should be presenting arguments/opinions of the issue, not other people.  Go elsewhere and troll.

If anyone should be banned.
It should be It_is_the_Light !

No other person on this Forum (inc Trolls)
is as weird and freakily scary as that crazed lunatic.
Even a Huntsman spider dropping from a sun-visor during a drive hasn't got a hairy leg on this member.  Shocked

I have no prob with that with the provision that it's just statements of fact and anyone who uses information in that subforum against members is instantly added to the list.

But I don't make the rules.

Where are these Rules?  People seem not to know what is expected.  Is there some Rule about referring (even in a neutral way and actually quoting them) to a Member's Family?

Here's a clue, if you are civil, you will in all likelihood, never get a ban.

Oh, okay....civil.  And what happens if you are not 'civil?'  And can you tell me where that word....'civil'.....is mentioned in the Rules.

Come on Setanta......civility went out the window here decades ago.

No Rule.

Cry

Yet people get banned....for breaching non existent Rules.

Pretty hard to cope with as a Member.

Embarrassed
