    I think my banishment was unfair and discriminatory. I do plead guilty to being a POT STIRRER to stimulate discussion but have never attacked or slandered any other member. Moderators of different forums appear to have their own agendas. I believe that my posts to this forum have been pretty tame.

    I think the issue there was that Politics is not allowed and you kept posting threads that were political in nature.

    To be fair...I think you had a few chances....first a temporary ban. :)

    I was banned there too long ago but with the amnesty got back on.

    Ive been banned here also a few times.

    I, too, am a member of that distinguished group who so unmercifully plagued Kevin Tang!

    This is an odd thread.

    I was banned for life on another Forum because I admitted inviting Chairman Mao to dinner.

    My banishment was not fair because it was caused by a liberal back lash due to my perceived conservative attitudes.

    I banned myself and haven’t yet decided for how long. The right side of my brain doesn’t approve of my left side and it’s knee jerk handling of left wing thinking.
    Until the left side of my brain decides to behave itself, I have banned myself from said forum for however long that takes.
    I have to admit, left brain seems to be handling it quite well and is fairly happy.

    AFAIK, I've never been banned, although I was given a two day time out on City Data. OTOH, I left one site because of a couple of obnoxious twits that should have been banned, but weren't because one of them was the owner. That site is now closed

    To be fair...there are still quite a few conservatives on there.

    They may sneak in their views in non political threads but you were starting political threads...that's a no no.

    I saw it...I knew you would be banned because you did it more than once....I'm just being honest here...:)

    A site where politics is banned?probably the one that mentioned here the other day!I was banned from a now closed site after incurring the wrath of a moderator.And I was proved right on the offending issue as well.And I banned myself from another Seniors forum after a moderator took exception to a perfectly innocent group I started.
    I am on a few of these places and in most of them once I've picked up on the 'vibe' of the site I think I have slotted in well.Hope to do so here.

    @Sir Walter Pasty
    Welcome to "the place"! The "vibe" here, if I may say so and remain relatively unscathed as a result, is admirably coalescent, a word I have no clue as to it's meaning, thus hoping my audacity may be excused. Mostly it is. At that other seniors forum, it was not. However, that means not, that I have become less reluctant to start trouble, more "mellow", or understanding.

    I have found everybody here to be very civil. I was attacked by one person a while back, but she has not re-appeared and other than her, I have been tolerated. I think "hounding" a person from one thread to another is frowned upon, but most opinions are tolerated here.

    So, you're asking to be excused for not knowing what you're talking about Frank?

    "a word I have no clue as to it's meaning, thus hoping my audacity may be excused."

    It was mainly inappropriate PM's that got you kicked out.

    @Don Alaska "...... most opinions are tolerated here."

    Openly, yes. Privately, never most, IMO. But, so what? There are a whole lot of opinions of my own which remain confined with me in my "bottle".

    I don't understand, @Frank Sanoica. We all keep secrets "in a bottle". As I have said, I am quite a private person, but I have seen very little here that was censored, and the only person I know that I have trouble with you already knew about. I don't know who you have problems with. Don't say anything deliberately intended to hurt or attack someone cruelly or maliciously.

    I did say MOST, not all

    Ummmm….. @Frank Sanoica , I think you misspelled opinions. That should read, "Imps ARE opinionated.":p
