    Here's a question for everybody. Had you ever been boycott a website before? Or had you ever been banned from other forums of explaining intense issues? Why or why not?

    Please reply, I like hearing from nice folks you dig!

    I'm glad I'm hearing from you on this issue Pliny. This is my 200th post you dig!

    But I felt the same way when I got banned by that anonymous Managing Board Editor at http://boards.radio-info.com after me getting intense on what's bothering me like talking politics is forbidden on the forums is like censorship. That person banned me thanks to the e-mail they send me. I was a little pissed off about the news. I've told him about this beef, you'll regret banning me, and I'd predict they'll be protesting or boycotting http://www.radio-info.com after me getting banned for good. I love the First Amendment and Freedom of Speech, fight what you believe in, that's the American way you dig!

    The Patriots are the protagonists, the suckers are the antagonists. That's my thought.

    "fight what you believe in" does not seem to me to mean what you seem to think it means.

    I've banned people from forums before. Usually for threats of violence against other posters. Their pleas for reinstatement are always comical, people love fighting for their "constitutional" rights against website operators.

    When I signed on as administrator for a forum I promptly got requests from two people who had previously been banned. Even if I'd never heard of them, the emails were so nutso and borderline threatening that I'd have liked to ban them all over again.

    I was banned from a cat forum after my cat logged into my account and starting attacking the most popular posters. They said it was really me who typed those insulting messages, but that's a bunch of crap because Genevieve's writing style is completely different from mine. It should have been obvious, but their prejudices blinded them to the truth.

    Some people will like to ban me but i never have had any problems on the different specialist webistes I visited.

    Rugby people tend to be respectful and rarely hateful...

    I wouldn't mind going on FNB because the wit there is acidic..

    It would be a character building experience.

    She was suggesting that only gay people would spend lots of time on a cat forum talking about cats. (She thinks "besex" is a transitive verb.) They should get out of the house and do more productive things. (Because she is a cat, she is not polymorphously perverse in the way that human beings are, and so she doesn't really understand the phenomenon of homosexuality.)
