    Banning Members

    Bill is now on a one-month ban until he can learn to be nice. Constantly insulting other members is not going to be tolerated; if he is able to act civil on DMCTalk, the same behavior is expected here.

    His ban can be lifted if he is willing to agree to stop insulting other members.

    Not appropriate.

    Lou can call Bill derogatory names (insane, crazy, etc), but when Bill responds in kind (losers, leeches, etc) he gets banned, while Lou remains unbanned for engaging in the exact same behavior?

    There's no consistency here.

    Sorry my friend, but you're too close to this one, and I'm afraid your objectivity has been compromised, hence I'm overriding this action.

    Admin decisions need to be made jointly and only enforced with the OK of Steve. It's the only way this site can have any integrity.

    I'm reinstating it based off of my discussions with Steve. The idea to ban Bill until the behavior improves was Steve's; I merely enacted it.

    Josh cannot undo Steve's actions , that has to remain the law.

    After all , this is Steve's forum , not Josh's, Chad's, Bill's, mine, or anyone else's.

    If anything, I was being lenient. The initial discussion with Steve called for a ban that would only be lifted if Bill chose to reach out to Steve and agree to stop insulting our members and play nice. (The same as his terms of re-admittance on Talk.)

    Subsequently, Lou is not allowed to insult Bill, either.

    Agreed, I think his actions have spoken volumes already.

    Let all personal insults be 'stricken from the record'.

    Admin actions need to be objective, fair, and consistently applied.

    Lou has been calling Bill names on this forum for a several months now, and yet, he was never banned. If you're going to start banning people for calling other's names, then Lou technically deserves an even longer ban than Bill's based on the objective demonstrative evidence found on posts on this forum.

    I don't want to ban Lou. Nor do I want to ban Bill. Nothing good would come of those bans.

    Honeslty, if inconsistent and unequal administration is the way that Steve and Chad are now going to run this forum, then I'll step down and leave, as this place clearly is no longer the place that it was intended to be when it was originally founded and has given up on its principles.

    Are you guys really going to let this place denigrate into yet another Talk?

    To further illustrate that there is no favoritism, Lou is receiving a final public reprimand: if he does not cease to insult forum members, he, too, will receive a one-month ban.

    Just as Bill was asked to be nice, so is Lou. This is a formal public notice.
