How do you get "banned"?

I noticed in that old thread that 1Bad brought back from the dead (that sucked...thanks 1Bad ) That there were a few different people that were "banned", one being the phoenix chick. How do you get banned? Can't you just start a new profile? Any juicy stories on past bannings?

Just curious, thanks.

In THEORY that can get you IP banned. (But I know of at least one that was banned under an old screenname, laid low for a bit, created a new one, and has been allowed to stay, so I guess there's exceptions to every rule )

This forum seems pretty easy going, though. If you censor yourself, seems like you can talk and post most anything on here without any problems. I was just curious how those people could have gotten banned?

Oh. Maybe Dlit knows, he's been here a while. SomBitch is probably sleeping, though.

we're not really supposed to speak of the circumstances that caused a specific ban, you are to address those questions to the higher powers here. but to sum it up: personal attacks aren't tolerated. 2 of the 3 i've seen go in my short tenure here really got into it with other members and acted rather immaturely. name-calling and profane language (worse if used simultaneously) will get you in heaps of trouble. this place has been considerably more pleasant without the troublemakers. i don't know what happened to get twisty banned though. as far as i know, he was just a man of strong opinion. and as far as jetski is concerned, that is nothing compared to some of the discussions i've seen. plus, most of us old-timers come to expect that point of view from him. i don't think anyone here has anything to worry about.

when you turn your bike on, does it return the favor?

Well, you can't ask why a specific member got banned because that will possibly get you a short vacation. Most members who have been banned were repeatedly warned to knock off certain behaviors/comments. They continued, so they got banned. Others have been banned for creating a second screen name and using it while still using the first. Sometimes a second screen name is allowed, such as the case of a vendor posting under the vendor name, or posting under their own personal name.

It is possible to get a short vacation, but not get completely banned. Continuing a certain behavior after a vacation usually results in a complete banning of said party.

Surrender the booty, and let me get my hands on that beautiful treasure chest!!

One of these days, I'll actually buy a bike again...

A little off topic, but I haven't seen Fatburg on here for a while. Is he busy with the baby?

Just follow the rules in the policies and guidelines area and you'll be okay. Starting breaking the rules and the penalties become progressively more harsh, eventually leading to a permanent suspension of posting privileges.

from my conversations with twisty he just couldn't stand the censorship and he eventually said enough stuff that went against policy that he was banned.

pretty much just talk civil, and respect other people's opinions, you'll be just fine. that and dont bash anyone. pretty much the same rules as talkin to your family.

life is but a way of killing time until you die. why care how you live, just have fun while you can.
