    Tak Is Banned?

    Given his past history with the MTF, I cannot say I am surprised. However, I am perplexed - why was he banned? Did I miss an explosive thread?

    Funny thing is, I think 5 of those 7 words are now allowed on TV, in primetime, just not on MTF.

    Without getting too much into it:

    Tak received a permanent ban from the Forum Admin a few months ago. After some time, he contacted the Forum Admin and asked to be allowed to return to MTF. The permanent ban was lifted and Tak allowed to return as a courtesy to him.

    Tak has been reminded several times since then, that based on his history on MTF and being allowed to return he was/is essentially on "probation", as such he may need to err on the side of caution with the Community guidelines. Instead, Tak has received several warnings and infractions for violating the Guidelines in the past couple of weeks, which he disagrees with and has had extensive conversations with a moderator about, he has been encouraged that if he feels he is being treated unfairly to talk to the Forum Admin directly.

    At the point his disagreements with how the Forum is moderated went from private to public in what was viewed as an effort to be disruptive and/or return to the previous "jackassery", the courtesy of the removal of his previous permanent banning was temporarily lifted.

    Consider how much more you often suffer from your anger and grief, than from those very things for which you are angry and grieved.

    Every conquering temptation represents a new fund of moral energy. Every trial endured and weathered in the right spirit makes a soul nobler and stronger than it was before.
