    Not you guys! ;)

    I'm on another forum, albeit I won't be there much longer. The admin was unable to carry out an adult debate. It was about the farmer and the collies. Basically he disagreed with 90% of his forum members who posted on it. Then started deleting posts, called me an Ass! And banned a few members who disagreed with him. Then he's disabled the PM system because people were sharing personal details. The last time I checked PERSONAL details were those of the person who owned them and it was for them to decide what they shared or not.

    I have now been banned from using the PM system because I have "abused it" by asking people for their FB names and emails for certain things. And now all my posts and threads have to be moderated before they are on the public forum.

    All I really said to him on that thread was that it sounded like he wanted his forum to be pink and fluffy.

    :rolleyes:: :crazy:

    Haha, it is fun and games over there isn't it ;) I am surprised I haven't got more of those stupid infractions because I have had a few arguments with him... I actually find it kind of fun now, and even more so now since I don't give a damn about getting banned :p We are better off without him... let's face it, he needs us more than we need him :p at least we have here, and the other place :D

    You'll have to go back as a newbie under a false name to contact those that you like :D

    Oh, that wouldn't work coz they wouldn't know they liked you if you get my meaning :eek:

    Sounds like a paranoid admin. Or maybe they have nothing better in their life to do...
