I got banned from a place once where they went the extra distance to direct by IP to a dead link so I couldn't even view the site.

Re: Listing of Banned Members and when ban will be lifted?

I've been banned twice. Once, the second time, I definitely deserved it. Sorry to Diwali for being such jerk in a PM I sent you.

The first time I was banned, I used forbidden words with altered spellings. Many do it. Why my transgression was beyond the limit, I could never know because it I could not see the original posting. So, I could never review my mistake/choice.

Some very good posters were permanently banned but this could be because they decided to retire rather than appeal. I have not noticed that moderators would absolutely refuse to review a life time ban. And there were discussions that indicated that they allowed some PM'ing so that people had an emotional connection could exchange emails and remain in contact in IRL before their ban became final.

It is partly a responsibility of the participants to be tactful and keep administrative hassles to a minimum, so that the moderators don't have to spend a lot of time maintaining discipline.

I have also wondered about the banning of trolls. Should their bans include some notice so that future readers of their posts can see the poster was not necessarily honest.

Re: Listing of Banned Members and when ban will be lifted?

I have tried recently to edit the OP's first post as a troll post so people don't waste time reading through 10 pages of crap before they see it was actually a troll. I usually leave the thread up a couple of days so people know what happened my get a sense of "style" from the troll in case they come back.

Re: Listing of Banned Members and when ban will be lifted?

I'd like to see the perma-ban for users who continually get banned. If someone can't learn their lesson and keeps doing things to get them banned, then they should be banned forever. They are taking away from the rest of the people who use this forum.

And I'm not talking about people who get banned once or twice. There are a handful of users on here who have been banned 20, 30, 40 times or more. They disrespect TAM over and over and are allowed to keep coming back. That shouldn't be ok.

Actually I've never seen anyone get banned more than 5 or 6 times. It's too much of a PITA to keep banning. Personally, my watermark is 3 and their done.

I guess there's no record of it, then, because I've been a member since 2009 and I've seen at least one person banned as often as not on TAM.

When a thread get's locked.

Does that mean that topic can no longer be discussed?

It means that thread cannot be rehashed in a new one.

Use your judgement. If the thread subject matter is why it was closed, then creating a new thread about that topic would be unwise.

See, I'm not good at that judgment thing. Never have been. I'm not good a nuances.

The last thread that was locked.. I was unsure exactly why it was locked so I asked the mod.. and was told, "I already told you".

So, I'm still not sure why it was locked.

Hope I'm not out of bounds on this one.

I know the one, I think. Lets say you're a Philadelphia Eagles fan. You have a pal who's a New York Giants fan. You trash talk each other about your respective teams a few times a week. That's multiple conversations but its only one topic.

You might say that you trash talk different players each time, therefore it's different topics, but it isn't. The common theme is hatred of your divisional arch rival. The proof is that, even though its a different player each time, it always leads to the same conclusion: the Giants suck! It's that single minded focus on that one theme that means it should be one thread.

Now if you managed to talk about QBs in a relatively objective manner, never implying that the team affiliation is the most important quality of a QB, then that sounds like a different topic, one that other fans who aren't interested in trash talk might be interested in.
