    Why would it need to be locked. There's no swearing or racism on it. In the past on TLB anyone who was banned had a fair crack of the whip first and the whole thing was carried out in the glare of publicity.
    Personally I don't actually know if RazzyH, Mrs Volkswombat and Volkswombat and others actually deserved their bans or not. What I object to is the apparent secrecy and underhandedness of it.

  7. I don't know who owns or runs the forum but is there a set of forum guidelines that sets this out?
    I can understand if someone breaks the rules that they will be banned but surely that should happen in the public eye.
    Come on Mods we all have the same desire to use the forum even if we have different views

  11. See link at top & i spoke to Ray ( Razza) last night & he has been banned.
    I don't really understand why and he doesn't find it reasonable but as the comment in the tread says 'He Knows Why' then the thread was locked it seems very draconian

    @Fish owns the site and has been responding to those threads. We mods are here all the time trying to make the site run smoothly. We don't always get it right but we do our best.
  13. Ok Bern, so what is the process if someone is to get banned & if others think it wrong what is the process to appeal?
    Finally are others allowed to challenge the decision and if so how or will we be banned for sticking our heads up above the parapet ?

  14. so having just read through the rules it would appear that most of us bend them on a daily basis, picking holes in for sale threads, mock swearing etc.
    but the last 3 bans seem to have been over a personal disagreement, or am I much mistaken?
  15. I'd imagine

    1. No
    2. No
    3. Yes

    I'm not aware of any process. We don't have anything beyond the mission statement as far as I know.
  17. It does seem a little odd that certain people only pop up on the occasions when there's been a banning, and take no part in active discussion, advice sharing, or general day to day forum interaction.
    I like this forum, the banter and also the sensible question and answer stuff is such a great resource, but the naughty school detention approach seems a little sad being as how we're all adults.
    That said, I know nothing of the circumstances, having read nothing by Ray that seemed ban-worthy, so I'll shut up.

    It is entirely down to you @Fish , you've single handedly managed to alienate half a dozen or so members who between them contributed about 150,000 posts to this forum.
    You are heavy handed in your modding and seem to only like to do it in pms!
    Who are you?
    Has anyone met or camped with you?

    Talk to us openly on here, it is a forum after all!

  19. What did they do ?
    We're all three banned last night ?
  20. It doesn't reflect well on the site when fish comes in, bans and few people, then disappears without trace for his next cull.

    Most people get on,

    To be honest, maybe it just doesn't reflect well on fish but that's his call.
