    • yeah
      beautiful
      yeah you are

      Baby if you time travel back far enough you can avoid that work because the dust won't be there. You're too pretty to be working that hard.
      lol

      • 1. Yes.
        2. It depends. If it's a spambot or troll account there is no warning. If you're a long time forum member and do something slightly out of line, then yes, generally, a moderator would communicate with the forum member before resorting to banning.

        1. Is Darthfriendly permanently banned?
        2. Does a forum member get a warning before they are banned?

        • Well, hell.

          But thanks, Mark, for responding. You obviously could have let me/us hang to grumble and fill your email-box some more, but I appreciate the fact that you didn't. At least I have the final outcome - it beats wondering.

            I didn't like the rules you gave me, so I made some of my own.

                • Well, if I was a mod, I wouldn't ban people like darth unlike some busybodies who think these are their forums and that they should be the matriarchs of discussion. I've never banned anyone but spammers in my other forums.

                    oh i've done this to my firstborn because i was soooo worried about bathing my son in water that was too hot. the hospital even handed out stupid little duckies that test the water temperature; so it must be a tricky thing to get the water temperature right, right? so the water was tepid, in the middle of december. Brr!!! that's when i stopped giving him routine baths. poor baby.

                      exactly my thought

                      and i hypothesize that senor grumpycakes would ban everyone who annoyed him

                      you and he would collide in a clash of ideals which would ultimately result in a black hole
                      beautiful
                      yeah you are

                        maybe they'd ban each other, a case of mutually assured destruction, hehe...

                        actually, i enjoy the curmudgeons, they add a certain spice to the gumbo on here....

                          • Awww... I miss DarthFriendlys humor His comments always caught my eye and made me like this forum even more - Call me mad, but I like colorfull people.
                            What was the reason to ban him? You gotta give us that piece of info, Mark, so we can decide wether it was fair or people are just waaay to sensitive.

                            P.S. About the dolphin pic. I wonder which dolphin got hurt the most. The one landing one the others nose or the others nose.

                                He doesn't, really. If MDA's policy is to keep this matter private, that's their choice. It's a policy at most forums I've moderated, both commercial and private.

                                Here's the deal: some people can be wildly funny and popular publicly. And then, in private messages to individuals, they can be scary jackasses who write abusive, stalkery posts and/or threaten people. You don't know unless you're the other party, or that other party chooses to reveal their side. Assuming they're even still around.

                                Is that what happened in this case? Don't know. But I can guess.

                                It's also possible there is another party involved who isn't Darth who doesn't want the story dragged out, or other forum members ridiculing them for making an unpopular decision. There may be legal limitations. It could be that Mark just hates Sith lords. Whatever, it's his forum, his rules.
