    Default Inquisitive minds

    I don't understand all the bannings lately. What is everyone doing to get banned? I don't want to get banned so it would be nice to know what rules are being broken. I don't see anything serious being done, but there are so many bannings! RWGR is gone again. It would be nice to know what the crime was.

    Can they afford to ban anyone and loose the few remaining posters?

    There may be 591 active users, BUT nothing is active about this site at all. This site used to be a lot of fun and now it is DEAD! I will probably next one to be banned. It is sad to see such a great (what used to be great) site on the brink of extinction. Too bad!

    maybe it's time to change the people running it and reinvite all the old time members that used to be on here. back when i joined 4 or 5 years ago there were so many new topics it was hard to keep up and so many nice people who have left because of the behaviour of a few who remain and continue pulling their crap. congrats on scaring away all the nice people! mods should have handled it better.

    Don't blame Soonet for the condition of this forum.

    Blame the people who can't voice their opinions without resorting to insults and mud slinging.

    Keep responding to their button pushing comments and pot stirring remarks and you will be letting half a dozen or so people destroy what could be a good forum.

    I am a mod and I try to keep from getting personally involved in these silly sparring matches, but banning someone who you think or perceive is insulting your country ? C'mon, that would be like me banning someone because they don't like my car.

    Why bother restoring this place when the majority of us active members are happy at our new home....forget this place and move on. Everything eventually runs its course afraid soonet has come to an end.....and yes it has to do with the way this place is moderated. (getting ready for another 10 day ban,we arent supposed to speak the truth)

    If you really must know..... because RWGR was saying he was banned figured I would come over and see what was going on. Have you seen me post in here much as of lately? HMMMM no don't think you have..... considering I was an everyday multiple times a day poster in many different sections.....should make you go hmmmm your right you haven't been here. I'm also happy at home but I do like to go out once in awhile does that mean I'm unhappy at home?

    No, it's not. If it was the threads would be gone, too.
