    A couple days ago I managed to get myself permanently banned from the "other" forum.

    I've got enough stress right now with my medically induced PMS and don't want or need the BS of that venue so I'm a happy camper.

    That's it.

    That other forum has turned into a poor excuse for a motorcycle enthusiast forum. Too many pages of non-sense to wade through to get to anything of value. I know you will be happy here...!

    I've met that guy. Was not what I was expecting, not even close. That's all I'm gonna say.

    You gotta give us the scoop. What did you do to get banned?

    Told one of the mods that he and the site were a bunch of PC Pussies and I didn't want anything to do with it any longer.

    Sometimes I think people will give up being habitually pissed off.
    I was wrong.....the other "site" has some very miserable members.
    It's sad to see a website dedicated to a specific topic go astray like it has.
    I think the Mods let it get out of hand and now are afraid to put their foot down.
    I call this home as far as putting out a comment or question regarding my Indian Motorcycle knowing it will be addressed in a respectful way.
    I'll stray over once in a while to View the train wreck.
    Hopefully the companies that help keep the place afloat will shy away so as to keep their dignity.

    For some reason that guy seems to be able to say whatever he wants, call people all kinds of names and he never gets banned or reprimanded for it. :confused:

    Hopefully never. Mods have a tough job regardless of website. You still have to control things that are out of bounds however.
    Self-control of members are the key. Most site Mods have jobs, time off, vacations etc. So constant monitoring is tough.
    Good members are the ingredients needed for longevity.

    Sure, really. You saw Thumpers specific complaint, right? Further, if all the folks from THERE come HERE, what so you figure will happen? Mods can't be blamed for it all, over there, and favoritism and bias are invasive.
    You really only combat that by rotating moderators- that NEVER happens. The ice cream cone licks itself.
