    Prey banned

    Prey is banned until further notice for flaming/trolling/attacking mods/being offensive/not following the rules.

    I warned him a couple of times after the incident with minir, but it seems he didn't listen. I was out of town for a couple of days, just reading what went through since Friday.

    IMO, Prey really brought this onto himself, though I'm sad he went down that path. Kudos for taking action Philip, I'm sure it wasn't an easy decision - it's not like Prey joined yesterday. And he knew the rules.

    The right thing to do, But you should have posted it and then locked it so you don't get the lame replies and the whining.

    Some just can't read between the lines. It's not one thing...it's a cummulation of things over the years.

    Tons of pulled threads, edited posts, and such and more warnings than Saddam received.

    One less person that does not agree with your ideology.

    I'm sure some are happy

    You, Prey and a few others were contributing to the drama for a week, figured it's about time I stepped in and announce my version of it. And all drama aside, those types of statements put you very close to the line of getting a similar treatment.

    I don't ban anyone based on controversial opinions. However, when they lose all civility and become offensive, trolling and flaming other users and staff we're not going to just put up with it forever. Prey was warned by me twice this week, once by Ken, and he had enough chances to adjust his language. Most of the offensive posts are cleaned up, but he was definitely out of line on more than one occasion. It was his choice not to listen to all the warnings.

    JC, I really don't care if someone doesn't agree with my views on things. It adds to the discussion on the boards when they don't.


    Let's take yourself for instance, I can't ever think of a time when you've got a warning from any of us. Maybe I'm wrong but if you did, my guess is, it had nothing to do with your convictions.

    The fact is, I do welcome you to "discuss" your own viewpoints. You do have to understand that since this "is" a fourm, others have that same right to agree or disagree with you. Hopefully, without insulting and name calling.

    Again, this isn't something that was done in haste. There is not a single member that's come within a mile of all the threads and posts Prey's put up that we've had to pull. I can't think of a single member who've received nearly as many warnings as Prey. None....and some of you have a file full.


    Personally I think that Philip has a heart of gold to have put up with it for so long. I also happen to know that it's hard for him to ban anyone. Especially long time members.

    Although I'm not wild about banning in the least, sometimes a village must banish its idiot for continued harmony and prosperity.

    And today’s “big boy” word of the day is Modus Vivendi.

    Read it and think.

    50% less spam on the boards?!


    I don't think he should have been banned. It's general discussion, discussing anything in general. It's not my board though.

    I've been out of town. Didn't know the history behind this post. Posted a few pictures that took away from what Phil was trying to get across so I removed them.
    People will forget what you said... and people will forget what you did... but people will never forget how you made them feel.
