    We all have our moments and we get plenty of rope.
    Anyone who gets banned deserves it, myself included (only once though).

    It seemed like just another morning for wrangling with him.......then boom, he went nuts.
    Being on the wrong side of the facts must get frustrating for them.

    I've never been banned, but I know that I've been close a few times. Most of us have pretty thick skin and we are given plenty of rope as you said. The stuff he was saying was waaaaay over the top.

    I give easy bans... I start out easy on people then they get worse for repeat offenders.

    It's a blanket policy , all mods know exactly how to use it and how it works. There are no quick trigger mods here. We have had some in the past but it's not their fault it was my fault, I never made it clear exactly what I wanted so thats all on me.

    We only perm ban spammers , porn posters / gore images/ or just plain putrid people who devalue the site as a whole.

    We are harder on gun blazing noobs, we give a more rope to established users because they may just be having a bad day.

    We don't give long bans unless a user just won't stop

    Lots of people take bans personal and thats not what I want, I just want someone to realize they were over the line and come back tomorrow. I have to keep a moderately clean forum to attract the people who make the forum possible. We don't have to be saints but if you can't discuss it at work it's basically the same here.

    We don't want to ban people, we want to retain members, more members pay the bills better.

    Our mods and me don't hold grudges, once your ban is over we are over it. We don't embarrass people we ban, if you did it just own it and come back and don't do it anymore.

    I consider every member on this website equals to me and every mod on this site. I am not going to take people abusing my unpaid staff but there are no power trips here at all...

    I may differ in the views as someone but I will never moderate someone based on their beliefs, many years ago I was a hard ass but I am much older now and much more chilled.

    We don't ban on emotion we ban on rules.

    I love this big old dysfunctional family we have here

    Yep. He thought that the Russian collusion was a game winner. And when it failed, he couldn't handle the fact that Trump wasn't going anywhere.
    I told him that he needs to seek professional help.

    I sensed that bubs was having a bad day, but had no idea that he would go crazy like that. Our conversations were no different than on any other morning, but geez, he flipped right out. I knew that he had lost it completely when he was involving my family members and death in his tirades.

    Yeah, I though we were heading for a pretty good debate, just strange because there was nothing to trigger it.

    We had a guy like that until the men in blue finally walked him off property.... we always wondered if he would show up and start spraying the terminal.

    ive only got a year on him, i wonder if he's really a driver? being a truck driver, usually you have a lot of patience, the way that guy acts, he seems unemployable!

    nuts, i wanted to throw his stupid avatar back in his face, lol....
