    Default No More Posts Till We Deal With The Issues

    Hello folks - sorry to all of the good users...

    I have disabled posting new threads and replying to old ones - this forum has gotten out of control and we have to make some changes.

    If you are a good user, please email me your username and request access:

    cthree at tweleve dot org

    If you are a known problem user your access will be denied. New users will not be admitted. If you are a new user and want access, try making friends in other sections of the forum or finding some other things to discuss to establish your membership. Only "good" users will be considered.

    Every good user will have one chance to be a productive member of this forum. Even the slightest infraction will be met with a swift and permanent ban.

    I really am sorry. I wish we were technically able to limit access to the trouble makers without inconveniencing the good users but that simply isn't efficient at this point.

    I have also enabled ads in this particular forum. Hate to do it but Maranatha is like 80% of our bandwidth and donations are down.

    At any rate - the goal here is to establish a private community of long time users and a good selection of new ones. All posts will be readable as always you just wont be able to make new threads or reply unless we allow it.

    Please be patient while we set this up. Its going to take a while to permission.

    Thanks!

    I respect the need for this limiting of posts and understand that some people were banned for violating terms and conditions.

    Can anyone explain why someone who was not able to post (ie not had their privelidge reinstated for perhaps understandable reasons) but was able to access and view the forum, has subsequently been banned?

    Its not like they said anything publicly disruptive.

    I understand private messages could still be sent by this person. If any were offensive then surely that person could be blocked by the recipient.

    Or is this censorship?

    I am referring to Obelixxxxer - I have received a few PMs and take it all with a large dose of salt (as would anyone).... but they suddenly went quiet. After a few days I noticed the lack of private messages. I look up the profile and see "banned".

    Banned for being a public pest is fair enough. I just cant see why it took so long to ban Obelixxxxer - personally would have thought some of the disruptiveness and potential slander could have warranted banning before now. Why now - when they cant speak publicly? I trust there is a good reason (no personal details required - just a rationale).

    I dont want to cause trouble but I think it reasonable to questionthe authoritarian tone this forum has taken because of all the recent dramas etc....

    Cheers

    Tracy

    (now please dont ban me for asking a reasonable question about censorship)
