    why do people get banned?

    From time to time when reading the threads, I notice that certain people have been "banned". Sometimes these people have been members of this site for a while and have contributed frequently. So out of curiosity, what causes people to get banned?

    I'm not asking about anyone in particular.
    Maybe it's none of my business.

    Freezon.

    By the way, thanks to all those who share their knowledge so freely. I have learned an immeasurable amount from the threads/posts on this site.

    Simple answer. They forgot the rules they agreed to when they joined. Moderators are pretty tolerant but they draw the line when necessary. They will politely and quietly spank you if you get out of line. But then, after a time out, all is forgiven, unless you continue and then you get to find another outlet for your verbal intercourse.

    ...for asking questions!!!



    I can truthfully say I've never been banned...and I've actually tried!

    (the cool people call it 'bant' by the way)
    Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.

    Another way to get bant is if us cool kids don't like you and you aren't popular. We will talk about you behind your back and tell any one that listens we don't like you. You won't get invited to the parties or where we cruise and park. You"ll get sad and go to a rival site that doesn't have cool kids. Eventually we will meet some Saturday night and rumble. DaddyO

    I will make sure to refer to it as "bant", from now on...
    Not that I am one of the cool people or anything, but, I don't want to rock the boat.

    The use of the pronoun "you" was not directed towards any one individual. The word "you" was used in a collective application that encompasses all of us..

    I've never been "bant" (stupid way to post this word), but I have been "banned". The reasons are because others just refuse to see things the way they should be seen.......MY WAY!
