    He received a message and ignored it. If they continue the behavior after a message asking them to stop a behavior...our actions have to get tougher. Think of it like verbal counseling, LOC, LOR, and Art 15. He got the verbal counseling, he received lighter bans, and still continued his behavior. There are several people here who have worked to get Tak back in much better ways.

    I'm not working to get him back. I'm just telling you the story I heard. One warning (verbal counseling), then the boot. But thanks for explaining to me how the process works in the AF.

    I understand that there are different versions of the story out there...just wanted to put out the reminder that there are at least two sides to the story. Those getting banned or whatever are not going to admit fault.

Look at the list...PYB, Joe, Tak, RobotChicken. It's almost as if they've made a list of those who posted a lot, then started checking them off one by one.
    I think PYB, JoeB, and Tak/GF all were banned before Moderators started.

    I think RobotChicken and Creaminess are the only ones that have been banned since Moderators came into play.

    you forgot Jerry "Stolen Valor" Connors. But no one probably cares about him. After all, he wasn't "friends" with anyone.

    I am not saying this is how it works EVERY time. But for the most part this is how we try to work it. It is not my place to explain why RC was banned. But he knows exactly why.
    Well DUH....once you ban them, the only side we can hear is yours....

    Not necessarily. Some are friends in other forums or in real life.
