BW is not a public forum. The rules are a general guidline for posting in most subforums. As far as I am concerned BW reserves the right to ban anyone for any reason. I don't see a problem.

Like they say, winning an arguement on the interernet is like......
This entire pissing match is entirely of your making by interjecting yourself into matters that really do not concern you (that would be the whining part), and you are missing the point completely. If you want to make the rules, start your own forum. Otherwise, just do pretty much whatever you want in OT, but try to behave like a decent human being. dk was banned after receiving numerous warnings via PM to cease and desist, which he chose to ignore. Want some BWOT TOU? There you go. Ignore multiple warnings and you risk being banned. Don't like it? Too bad(benz).

I know that a BANNING is not a simple, capricious task and does not take place on a whim. There really is no double standard.

And OT truly is a different place. I liken it to Internet LaserTag. I know that most of us here take very hard shots at each other on OT but I notice that when we meet on other sections all is normal, conversation, seldom moving remotely OT. I have also met several members live and find that even though we may spar online, when we meet, OT topics are never even brought up.

I am on several fora and BWOT is actually the MILDEST of the group of fora. There are a couple that I have left due to near civil war.

Now if you want humor, go to MBWorld OT. Learn about how to date, check out porn, determine what hair products make you look like a f4g, etc. Not my cup of tea.

I agree with the point badbenz is trying to make. It does appear there might be a different set of rules applying to different members. Case in point: gauge was temporarily banned for being an OT troll. Okay, fair enough. But what worthwhile posts do many of us here contribute outside of OT? I participate in a few forums here and in W163 and so do others, but, what constitutes a 'troll'? There are definitely some regulars here that contribute absolutely nothing other than to pick fights with other members. Are these persons not also trolls?

I, myself, enjoy sparring with FTL from time to time. He gets over the top sometimes and you will read my thread response calling him out on the 'punch you in the face' remark. There's no need for such nonsense here or anywhere else.

I'll tell each of you this: call me a terrorist here and I meet you somewhere in public, I'll laugh and buy you a cup of coffee. Hell, I'd eat dinner with FTL if he'd promise not to punch me in the face.

None whatsoever, in your particular case.

Eloquent. Did you come up with that one yourself or did Dutch fax it to you?
