No big secret there, Pidge. I am marveling at wazza's patience in that quagmire.

I guess that's the line. douche bag = OK, halfwit = way too derogatory.
I don't know. In general, as in my case, bannings are deserved.

It might have been mr silver-tongue's first time that he came to the attention of the mods.

It could have been your third, fourth or fifth time that you crossed the line. You aren't always banned solely for your most recent offence.

Yeah pissed a lot of us off when that happened. I'm still pissed at those guys and they do NOT represent the American viewpoint. I'm not going to name names, merely say (azz-hats!)

I probably would have PM'd CA had you not named names anyway. How did I miss that? Oh, right... I took a break from TAM. I went and skimmed some posts there. I agree with Philat... Wazza has definitely showed restraint. Just no getting through to some people.

You can use the 2x4 without adding nails to it.

LOL, how ironic would it be to get banned for breaking the rules on this thread?

It was started 2-1/2 years ago and the OP was banned 2 years ago. It is a zombie thread that someone bumped for some reason known only to them.

I was TAM friends with the guy that was party to the EA and I had no idea that was going on. Looking back at his PMs, I realize now he was also inappropriate towards me but at the time, naive me chalked it up to what I perceived to be cultural differences (how Canadian of me!?) and admittedly, I ignored it.

As soon as that EA of his came to light, I ended up deleting all of my male contacts. It was definitely an over-reaction but I was raw from my own experiences with infidelity and then seeing it happen on here with someone I had befriended made me hypersensitive to any "threats" real or perceived.

I'm all good now though. I know where my boundaries are and just don't talk to anyone that seems to be fishing.

Re: Why are there so many "banned" posters?

Among the fWW that openly state their husband reads their PMs, I'm OK with talking with them in PM because I know that it will stay at a level that is unquestioned.

A fWW that doesn't say that? I'm not going to respond to a PM. Any form of private communication can be a trigger, and I want no part of it.

A large part of that comes from being active in the social forum when that EA came to light.

Re: Why are there so many "banned" posters?

I was also TAM friends with a married woman that got inappropriate with me. It was like a one sided EA, only I knew what was going on and I kept my boundaries strong, but I let her talk me into believing she was just a friend.

It got to a certain level where I was uncomfortable talking with her and kept telling her to take it down a notch and stop being so sexual. I started getting mean with her too, which wasn't enough because she would push even harder.

Boy was I glad when her husband got so jealous he took her away from her computer. I think they tossed the idea of an open marriage around before they both decided they wanted to reconcile and keep their special brand of crazy contained within the relationship.

This is why with every female friend I get close to I have to have that uncomfortable "let's just stay friends" talk before anyone gets the wrong idea. The last thing I want is that awkward relationship online and long distance with someone I would probably never meet in person.

Re: Why are there so many "banned" posters?

Maybe I'm naive, but "just staying friends" is expected isn't it? Spoken out loud and agreed to or not, that is expected and the rule...right?
