I don't know about that, TB comes up with some great one liners.

Lots of cry babies on this forum but that's okay, it makes them feel important.

People (especially considering the average we at CT are) actually have that kind of problem if they're banned from an internet discussion board?

I find that kind of amazing and a bit troubling all at the same time.....

I don't care for permanent banning. I do think placing rule breakers on lock down for offenses is much more effective. For how long being determined by the moderators of the board.
Let's all take a look at the facts. Objectively, any thread that has any strife, conflict or "controversial" issues consistently has significant numbers of total views.
Especially if it involves cowgirl8, Bright Raven, or even True grit. Many folks profess to taking issue with the aforementioned, but these same people are lightning rods for viewership...and personally, I believe make this board a much more interesting place. There is a wealth of cattle knowledge still here and some new folks joined recently that have added to that as well.
My first year on CT, we were consistently being told to go over to Ranchers if we wanted to 'carry on'. Anybody ever really go to Ranchers? I lurk there a couple times a week and the place has a fraction of the activity this site does. Very nice people with great knowledge, and clearly not as much free time to post as those here at CT.

I hope Alisonb is happy. She started a thread on banning that is going to get someone banned based on the way it is going.

I still wish they would lift the ban on religion. It would be like selling whisky to the Indians.

I wish folks had a bit more self restraint to keep themselves from getting banned. M5 comes to mind. I know he left for personal reasons, but before that he was banned. He had good information, and was fun to banter with. The biggest problem is that people can't keep from insulting someone that has a differing view, they seem to have no other argument other than the "you're stupid/ignorant/a snowflake/etc."

I'm in favor of a warning system followed by a temporary ban and then a complete banning.

I don't appreciate drama or anecdotal evidence, so I just avoid it, or handle it as straight forward as possible if it presents it's self. Some people thrive on it. Fence builders must be more mature, in general, than the average person, at least when sober...ish, because we simply don't have these kinds of problems on our forum. If someone makes a comment that is out of line, it simply gets ignored, and people generally get the message. No warning points have ever been awarded, and nobody has ever been banned. The moderators are great to answer tech questions, but let us govern ourselves....with great success. Watching people be mean to each other, just for the sake of being mean, says volumes about an individual.
