    Has anyone here ever been banned by a chat-room board?

    I have been a bit, er, testy recently, and last night
    I called a mod on another board an "asshole" in a PM.

    Well, that's what he is, and it had to said; I haven't
    checked in yet today, but I have a feeling my days
    there are numbered.

    It all started when he closed a thread of mine out of the blue,
    and with no explanation.

    It was a "History Quiz" thread exactly like the one here,
    posted in one of three board History forums.

    Then in another thread another member posted a laughing
    emoticon in reply to an amusing anecdote I had posted.

    The SOB deleted that, too- seems he doesn't approve
    of laughter.

    I posted a reply to the thread containing several laughing
    emoticons, and a phrase or two questioning the mentality
    of someone who thinks laughter should be censored.

    Dick head deleted that post, as well as another unrelated
    post, and sent me a warning for questioning administrative
    decisions in public.

    That's when I lost it. I might have called him a "dork"
    and a "douchebag" too- being pissed off makes me forget
    what I have said sometimes. 10 or so beers don't help either.

    I don't know about the other board, but not easy to get banned, but yeah, could have accomplished it with the above, at least for 24.

    I have been banned in here twice over the last year or so...don't take it to heart...we all say things that offend others from time to time...just the price ya must pay for free speech...maybe the mod was having a bad day or something and took it way to personal or over-reacted... :rolleyes:

    What?- are you serious?

    I am out of the loop as far as anything that might
    be wrong with "Kalifornia"

    I do belong to a board where "Californification" might
    get you a warning as an "offensive generalization",
    or some such thing.

    I should ban you both for spelling infringements, going to look at rules. :firing:
