No, but I was warned once for "rudeness" when I said I wouldn't give up a night to have a drink with someone.

Nope! Absolutely Not! Never!
I would be very embarrassed if I were ever banned, especially for Rudeness Without Malice!;)

once plus some very stern lectures.

The lectures all seem to one from complaints from our liberal forum members..

Odd thing is I was joking but it was used against me...

I'm ok with it I got away with other stuff.

Yuppers; rumor has it someone from LI couldn't take the heat, and complained. Of course, I was on vacation at the time, and didn't discover it until the day before it expired. I suspect there's a lesson in that, somewhere.

Just once. Scot must have not been looking the other times.

Considering I've been here about 146,000 days, I'd say that's a pretty good percentage.

Hmm. My calculator lied.

More like 2800 days.

Even then, a good average. Banned for 6 of them.

I've never been banned. I got a warning once for posting a quote from Lee Atwater including an impolite word for people of African ancestry. Asterisks are your friend in such cases.

I haven 't been banned, but Scot did take down a thread I started. I went away for the weekend, and when I came back I had a note from Scot that it had become rather sour. I apologized for starting a thread when I wouldn't be there to take it down if it got bad.

I have put someone on hold so that he wouldn't be banned after he lost a bunch of posts while trying to start a flame war with me.

S.V. Airlie
12-26-2014, 03:21 PM
Never banned here.:dSo, you never posted on "wicked Weasel" and been banned! Why don't I believe that?:)

leikec

I've never been banned, never been warned by Scot. I have, however, posted a few things that I've later regretted, because I do try very hard to be blunt and honest, without being a jerk.

I could write a Treatise On Banishment, but I'd likely get banned.:)
Best to follow the Forum Rules, especially the Rudeness Rule.
Referring to someone as a half-wit might slip by one time, but the next time three members may push the button and you get warned of banned.
I've never been banned or warned for Threatening Language, Vulgarity, or Obscenity....just Rudeness.
Rudeness gets more people banned than anything else.

I was banned once because I did not understand the rules.

I posted a link to very graphic images about ISIS beheading people.
Because I gave a clear warning I thought it was OK.
But I was wrong and got banned.

This is a free forum and we should all try not to be banned.
Scott has better things to do.

Yes mostly you are right.

In my case someone else posted a graphic video of a police officer breaking a mans arm.
No warning just the video.

So in a thread about how cruel ISIS is I posted a link to some graphic images with a clear warning I thought it was OK.
But I was wrong and will not do it again.
Next time I will just say to goggle it yourself.

I sped up before reaching the 45mph sign. The Amazon was parked just at the sign for 45. Clocked me doing 46mph on a 35. Yes, tech. right but, it came down to location, location, location. $120.00
