So we have a couple of problems:
Incomprehensible posts. txt speak will result in immediate banning. sorry we don't have time to comprehend it all.
Personal insults. Will result in immediate banning. Insults are from the pretty lame "shut up!" to all the rest.
People complaining that this board is gone to the dogs every time they post. Yeah ok we get it, bye bye if you can't stand it any more! Plenty of people have done so before and plenty more will. You won't get banned for this but you will get warned for first offence.

So officially here they are.

BANNING RULES:

You will be banned immediately if:

1. You speak in txt speak. I don't mind the occassional "ur" but if your post takes more than 10 seconds to comprehend; you're gone.

2. You personally abuse another poster for their opinion or viewpoint. This may be a bit controversial but I'm sick of the baiting and the retaliations that go on.I don't care what your opinions are as long as you get them across succinctly and take on board other peoples views without calling them a f***ing c**t. Telling a person to shut up can also be seen as uncalled for, I think we can do without it all and still have normal discussion. Why don't we just take a couple of posters habits and if you disagree just start off with "Yeah, gotta disagree with ya there.....etc etc."

You will be warned if:

1. You whine about this place not being readable or worth coming to any more. Annoying!

2. A reply to a poster which is basically just worthless and is dissing the posters opinions.

I'm also closing down registration to the board for the next few weeks. So there. Tell your friends.

You can start sending me PMs now telling me I'm Hitler and giving me definitions of freedom of speech. You won't be banned. ;)
wouldnt that not be guessing who you are? ;)

Given the recent spate of personal abuse by several posters and the ignoring of several polite PMs regarding same there are 2 members now deleted and 2 more on a months ban.

In addition rather than complaining on thread about no action being taken please be advised that there is the report post facility on each message. This is a lot easier to pick up than on-thread posting both for the integrity of the thread and the fact that it stands out.

Only joking, there was a major shitstorm there so I'm sure they deserved it. G.C. I would imagine 1 of the banned contingent was alfie - he always comes on and gets his knickers in his twist when people mention his owl fella in a bad light - Harry Martin.

I was on here late enough last night, and there were 2 very dodgy posts, which have now been deleted. One of the posts was full of racist remarks, not nice stuff, the other was just shit talk. They were from 2 new users, no loss!

I'm also stopping new users from registering for the time being because as was just mentioned there; the bannees were new-ish.

Call me Gestappo if you will, no worries...:)

I dont see the whole Gestappo thing. Forums need moderation or it will be chaos. Well done.
