    Default And just like that,

    hes gone.

    Is there a record for this and, if so, who else might hold it?

    Dutch?
    Botebum?

    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    I almost threw Memphis on the list.

    I think the other three would be in the running if we were talking about time spent at camp, but I’m going for quantity over quality on this one.

    I often wonder if I’d know if I were banned. I go so long without bothering to log in at times.

    Do you at least get a courtesy email?

    I've been banned several times. Dinged posts several more.

    One can't go toe to to with the International Fabulationist Conspiracy, and the Deep State/Deep Draft sorts without taking some fire, eh?

    In the former case... banning... I think I've always gotten some sort of curt PM (but don't ask me to swear to it). Something ranging from 'rude' to a longer sentence warning of more direr consequences if I didn't shape up.

    Don't think I've ever seen any communication from the times I've just lost some posts without a banning. And, in fact, I know there are times when I had no idea I had... until someone more observant mentioned it. There was a certain dingbat who used to like to gloat about it.

    Can anyone tell us what happened without getting in trouble themselves?

    I've been banned 3 times I think (for rudeness every time... I guess I am a slow learner).

    My experience is the same. Scot emails an explanation for the banishment (which can be as short as "rude"). No explanation accompanies a mere deletion of posts. I guess the idea is that one is supposed to notice and either shape up or ship out.

    I do know that Scot actually ALTERED a couple of Joe (CSOH)'s posts a few years back. Joe was incensed. I don't know that it was ever repeated.
