Can I ban my kids when they say mean things to each other?

Like Michel said, we try to get rid of the trouble makers before they make a serious public impact. There is a lot that goes on behind the scenes so that you don't have to see all the junk that people try to get on the board.

No, you have to be a moderator or Administrator.

Well would you please ban them then?
Or, may I be an honorary mod?

It's funny how some people have the irresistible urge to respond to known trolls on public forums. I guess that's what makes a good troll. They usually don't last long though. Most move on to other boards.

Sometimes people are accused of being trolls erroneously. I'm not happy about the fact that I've been banned from 9 different boards, all different kinds for all kinds of reasons.

I can't remember all the so-called crimes I commited, but I do remember the following:

One time I talked too much about medical isues and people got nervous and I was asked to leave.

Another time I posted too many jokes and was accused of trolling and banned.

A third time I was looking for a certain recipe and didn't care for the recipes that people suggested. That made people very very angry and I was kickled off a la being a troll.

Another time I was deemed not spiritual enough.

Each board has rules and regulations but often they are overlooked as personalities come into play as well. I think that's annoying, but .....

Have you ever been a 40 year old washing dishes in Momma and Poppas restaurant in Idaho?

Each board is different and new members should adapt quickly as tolerance levels are quite different from board to board. My very first joke posted on this board, for example, was pulled off overnight for whatever reason. That's no problem for me and I'm not going to question why. That same joke has been circulating in many other forums with great popularity. I just happened to come across it in a home improvement forum and decided to post it here as I thought it was funny, I thought....

I'm on a site that bans people for spreading false spoilers for television shows. We have probably banned the same guy 30 times yet he keeps coming back.

Definition of insanity.....doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different outcome.
