    Have you noticed we really are cracking down? We don't catch every violation, but we are catching a lot more of them. If you haven't noticed, it's because you're not breaking the rules and you make a genuine effort to stick to the subject, respect those who disagree with you, and present a well-reasoned (or sometimes amusing) point of view. Thank you.

    I've been banned from threads

    I've been unbanned from threads

    Over the long haul the actions of the mods won't make much of a difference.

    after the election, things will simmer down naturally

    what will continue, however is partisan banning.

    you are welcome

    I think members who have shown an arrogance to the new forum will be shown the door quickly. I've never been banned and never had a warning. It's not rocket science.

    Scout nails it. Most come here to discuss ..

    Sometimes discussions get heated but respectfully.

    Some come here angry ... and we all know the rest of how that will go from now on.

    To me it is crazy to come to a political forum and get angry because someone else has a different point of view. That is the whole reason to come to a political message board, to see another point of view!

    To be honest I do not see how that works. He was the one that put his father's death out there as an example. That should not be an excuse for breaking the rules.

    The mods have done a nice job of cleaning up some of the signatures that were offensive.. although there is still a lingering avatar commentary that is very offensive and would appear that it violates the rules of the forum.

    Nope...but didn't Ian say the other day that if anyone has been banned from a thread previously, should now have that ban lifted?

    I'm pretty sure he said that....

    No, what we talked about with Ian was unbanning several individuals and starting with a clean slate. At least three people have been unbanned from the forum, but if they don't play by the new rules they will be banned again.
