    Why are so many users

    banned from this forum? Seems like they were active productive members. Lots of them have thousands of posts.

    People come here for different reasons. Some are just scammers, some go down the dark path and start dealing or other types of things that are clearly against the rules. Some just cant walk away from something or someone they disagree with and let it get out of hand until they also violate the rules.

    Either way it's because they broke the rules in some way and did not listen to Admin and warnings.

    Why are people banned? Because they broke the rules. I thought that was common sense.

    Why so many? 200k members, 100's online at any given time, 10k+ members browsing while logged out.

    Still seem like "so many"?

    Meh

    Admin requires regular sexual favours. If you do not provide, you get banned, very simple.

    Agreed. Shouldn't come as a surprise. Follow the rules or be banished.

    Not hard to figure out. The rules are there to keep members and the board safe.

    Play nice or admin puts you on ice!

    I think what the OP was trying to say was: "Why were so many members so well-liked and highly respected, and now they're banned?"

    A lot of that has to do with the fact that when a small % of members on here get a title, or become really friendly with a VET or MOD, they get a power trip and think they can do whatever the hell they want. There was one guy who everyone seemed to like who constantly got out of line, cursed people out, and was for lack of better word, was a total BS artist - however a lot of VETs liked him and he never got reprimanded, until one day out of the blue he did something really bad and was banned for life/had his name tarnished forever. I think favoritism plays a big roll in whether or not someone gets banned. Everyone should get the same rule book, imo...

    Your opinion is not fact, Bronzer. Who are you speaking of that cursed people out and was never called out - out of the lounge? Certainly not in my time. You've been here longer though, so maybe it was before my time.

    There were quite a few times where St. Pete threatened that kid SHSM. One time he even took as far as what he was going to physically do to him if he ever saw him....graphic and out of line.

    You have to remember that good scammers are usually very well liked. They know how to play the game and usually have very likable personalities and are quite helpful up to a point but all in all it's to promote whatever they are trying to sell.

    Eventually they usually get found out.

    Ok, but how did you know that St. Pete or anyone else wasn't reprimanded? There's a lot that goes on behind the scenes that most aren't privy to know. People change sometimes. St. Pete was promoted because at one point he was just fine. Whatever happened in his life that caused a personality change is a guessing game. His attitude change was absolutely, 100% and without a doubt (I really do know), not ignored.

    Staff or otherwise, people (in most cases) are given plenty of opportunity to change their attitudes for the better, because that's the right thing to do. If after some attempts all fails, they're usually gone.

    Most of us will never see warnings. Admin and monitors are good about trying to keep things low key and behind the scenes to not give anyone a black eye and they have the chance to correct the situation without making it public.

    Sounds like a decent policy to me. They dont have to do it that way. Everyone (myself excluded) have a bad day once in a while and may have a short fuse and a warning or attitude adjustment is good enough to set us straight. Others are just off the hook and let it go to far to often. CM comes to mind.

    Members get banned for breaking the rules, many of you wont see what happens backstage but trust me every banning isn't taken lightly and sometimes it might look strange why someone got banned so quickly or why someone isn't banned and left to cause havoc but there are reasons for everything what goes on and sometimes that cant be public knowledge.

    OK this is WEIRD. When I go back to read my post most of it is gone. I said something similar to you marcus but when I quote what I wrote it's all there. Maybe it's just my computer?

    I have to agree on this one. Much goes on behind the iron curtain....

    sorry mate. I've never sold anything along these lines.

    If I have surplus, and you are in need, I will GIVE you the item. I will not sell you the item. If you do not believe me, ask around. There are several here that have received gear from me at no cost. I even paid the postage.....

    it was a serious question

    why would company reps make accounts here that are affiliated with said company? if there were kean to share knowledge or be apart of a community why not just make their own personal profile. It looks suss

    i have been following this board a while, and yes its the best.

    i think in life things change, people change. we all live different lifes, some good and some bad. we all play with different chems, and some really strong. I know that tren cost me alot in life, i am a differnt person on it, i mean i get mean. mix these chems with the daily struggles that change and sometimes its almost enough to destroy us. we have personal, then we have people on this board that get considered friends, and over the years we lost 2 amazing great guys. in short, tren cost me alot in life, and when someone snapps, they are an a-hole and break rules. people push it way to far. i have watched it for years.

    ban hammer falls.....

    Thank you for your insight Bronzer. That's exactly what I was wondering.
