This is a question for admin regarding the recent banning of Damiross and Lieberma. I assume they were banned for breaking the truce, however is the ban permanent? If not, how long are they banned for? Flyboy was also recently banned and has returned.
Also do you have a forum rules section to read, so others can avoid being banned?
As for the banning of Allen and David, I hope it is not permanent. Many here have had their disagreements over the years with one or both of them, myself included. However, I think they both have contributed great amounts of knowledge and history to these forums. It would be a shame to lose them for good, just because they can’t get along with each other.
Bring them back. Allthough some on here really piss me off with the snub nose remarks or treat some posters with no respect, I know that I don’t have to read it. I can move to another thread. Both have given alot to this site and it far outweighs their sometimes child like behavior.
Bring them back. When I first joined fa, dami drove me nuts. But IF you read his comments, and understand him…it takes time You will get like what deef said an understanding and in some cases some education. Same with Lieberma. He was very informative when I first joined. NO ONE is perfect. I AM SURE I have made people cuss a time or 2 with things I post. Good, it worked and got your attention…you all know who you are At any rate, IF you don’t like something someone says…read past it and don’t respond. Both guys deserve to come back IMHO. PLEASE!!! Let them, before we have the kids run off with the joint
First and foremost a collective thanks for the support not only in this thread but in the entire 4+ years in participating in these forums. We probably need to recognize the kinship shared almost more in virtual time vs real time in real life. Something I did sincerely miss during the past week.
I will say as I owe it to everybody the reason for what I believe the ban was for. I THINK for me using a four letter acronym beginning with R in the Dami vs Lieberma round 1,234,022. This probably was the straw that broke the camels back and while my “first offense” using implied language as such it was deserved even though in four years, I had never posted or in this case implied such language. A warning for me would have been more then sufficient regarding language but ban was put in place.
The hard part of the ban to be honest was not being able to connect with those as the PM feature got crippled and it took somebody (BIG THANKS) to connect with me so the full story can come out. I got the PM alerts, but wasn’t able to respond!
As I told somebody in my private email I didn’t want people necessarily perusing NTSB reports because I dropped off the radar so I had asked them to “pass the word on” and THEY graciously did so…
Anyhow, rambled on enough, “refrain to the first paragraph”
It wasn’t one particular word, I banned them for dragging many threads off topic with petty squabbles. I’d been slack about enforcing the rule for a while hoping it would work out but it didn’t. I don’t want to spend any time enforcing rules like that.
Don’t worry about being banned; aside from those two I think only one other user has served a temporary ban (aside from spammers, who are permanently banned) for foul language.
dbaker had no involvement; he’s in Thailand on his honeymoon.
