    AO. Forum Admins To Tough?

    I know I think that the admins on this forum dont give anyone a break, they will ban you from the site in the blink of a eye just for saying what you beleave. Do you think they ban to many people for to many dumb reasons?

    What you are saying is not true.

    It is not the admins that do the banning.
    It is the community as a whole. They are the ones who assign the antipoints.
    If people don't like your posts... they will let you know.

    The admins can and will ban in special circumstances... but its been a while since that has happened. I think the last people to get banned were a group of seniors for abusing the AP system. I think*
    Quitmzilla is a firefox extension that gives you stats on how long you have quit smoking, how much money you\'ve saved, how much you haven\'t smoked and recent milestones. Very helpful for people who quit smoking and used to smoke at their computers... Helps out with the urges.

    phishphreek is correct. Any bannings that have been done recently are due to negatives points being given by members. Negative points are given out for a variety of reasons from poor posts, plagarised posts, inappropriate posts, etc. The moderators mostly spend their time moving posts around from one forum to another.

    Sprink, read the FAQ, it will tell you all about banning, ect, ect, ect....

    Hmm... I'm on this site for about 2 weeks ("active" posting and thread-searching), and I've seen such a topic for about... eeh... 50 - 150 times, maybe. I don't get why you people ever care. Registration takes about 2 days (max), during this time one can sit-relax-just_look_through_the_threads. If I ever get banned, I'll just reg again... and again... and again...

    I thought that JP implemented a feature that changes your Member Status to "auto-banned" (instead of just "banned") if you are banned by the AntiPoints. This might have changed since but I could swear such a feature did exist. Now when looking through the Recently banned -list all of them are plain "banned"? They do all have three red dots...
