    PTB, be advised that if my posts are all going to be associated with advertisements, I must cease participation on the site.
    Only the first and last posts should have ads in them so the ads are not associated to the poster.

    As said before, have to pay the rent.

    @Rizzo77
    Yes, it affects everyone, so there is no reason people should associate the ads with you. Obviously, if you just made a post, that will be the last one on the page for a given thread, but it will go away once someone else posts.

    Just out of curiosity - why are moderators allowed to publicly discuss bannings, but members are not?

    Missing thread?

    Curious about a thread that was here...then gone. Was it in the wrong area? Or is the question thread only for questions that don't question Mods?

    If you mean questions or discussion, then discuss away. If you mean using veiled profanity or just bashing the moderators, that is disruptive.

    As I have said, if you have criticism please bring it up. But there is a difference between being critical and confrontational.

    Ok...here is a critical question regarding a recent banning. How can one person be banned for comments that were made by three different people while the other two people making the same comments in the same conversation are not?

    The person who was banned already had current infractions. The other two did not.

    The exact same thing happens in kindergartens every day. Why just this morning, I was out for a morning walk and passed by a Kindergarten school yard.

    Little Billy, Johnny, and Tommy were calling Little James of the Sandbox a poopie-face; right on cue, the play ground supervisor ran over to the sandbox and made little Billy go inside.

    Little James, bless his heart, was having none of that and started shouting they said poopie-face too! When the playground supervisor ignored little James, he became quite irate, he was stamping his feet, shouting "punish them too!" His face turned blue, snot was running down his nose, and then he pissed his pants.

    I shouted, "way to go, Snot Nose James!" and ran away as the children started chanting in unison, " Snot nosed James! Snot nosed James!"
    All behold that fancy strutting peacock, the bake sale diva...

    First off that's false - I didn't have "current" infractions - mine were all expired.

    Secondly - why weren't the other offending posts at least deleted or edited?

    Thirdly - my "infraction" was when I was accused of putting ads next to posts - that's not even related to being "offensive".
