    If the mods banned anyone who posted 'obscene, vulgar, sexually-orientated, hateful, or threatening messages', this forum would be rather empty.

    Be happy that the mods on this forum are 'lax'. I'd rather it lax than for the mods to be trigger-happy with the ban feature. You'd have 'Internet Infidels Reloaded' on yours hands.

    Or survivalist pragmatism. Wouldn't want to offend omnipotent body snatching entities. Do you drink tea with or without milk?

    Well, I can do without him, I am ignoring him for several months running. That's the great thing about the ignore list. But as it stands, I would agree that he breaks the rules stated in the agreement. Thus I would not overly miss him in the event of his banning.

    But then again...I am sure I would get my own ass kicked in the process. Alas, with luck, all my bad posts have found their way into the cesspool and have been deleted.

    He's an arrogant racist prick, who I am sure is kind to cats and often helps old ladies cross the road. If you jettison vince because he disagrees with you, why shouldn't he have you ejected for disagreeing with him? I vote for freedom of speech on this occasion.
    Now, if you are looking to have him and the Baron and the like removed from the planet, then I'll join the party.

    I only have one complaint with the mods.

    If someone wants to know about getting girls (or guys), It belongs in the biology forum.

    If the tread degenerates into touchy feely anecdotal love BS.... move it again to the philosophy forum.

    Or we can start a socially imposed anecdotal blah section and put it there.

    While I'm at it... we should start Religion Discussion 2 aka The I don't understand logic at all forum.

    I can already think of a few posters I would give free one way ticket.

    I concur. Mods are too lax.
    They allow dimwitted vagrants to hijack this forum’s intricate intellectual pursuits and its profound focus.

    The mods here are excellent. I've seen other forums where the mods bullied others into doing what they wanted (at which point I created a thread to start some contoversy and promptly got banned) and I've seen forums that ban people for such abusively powerful reasons as the particular mod disagreed with someone's arguement about a guitar solo and was losing. The mods here don't abuse their power (or at least I've never seen or heard of it) and they are quite friendly and free-thought and speech oriented as well.

    The mods here are about a thousand times better than other places.

    I think everybody should be banned, unless it can be proven they have never once in their life ever said something that upset someone else.

    That way you know the people you have left (probably none) will not cause trouble.

    I think that the mods have let us have more freedom than most message boards about these types of subjects usually do. I think there should be more moderating of stupidity that disrupts the flow of intelligent threads but other than that, I am very satisfied. I also volunteer to mod someof the less watched areas that have been a bit garbled lately.

    as far as i know vince is mainly a problem in my area, i am doing my best but this isnt a paying job you know and i do have to earn money to live, plus i am going through a tranfer in careers right now and i am spending alot of time trying to find out how to go about it so it leaves me little time to search through every post that builds up while im away

    Im doing my best

    OK As, thats fine. It's just that James R said once at the beginning of vinces second spree that if he "posted another thread like this" he would be banned. Doesn't seem to have happened.
