No it don't work that way. If someone violates the terms and conditions of forumotion.com or the guidelines that I have set I will put it to a member vote via a PM and the members will decide. If it is a blatant violation, then I will take appropriate action upon myself to do it.

I really think most people will act ok. I really like these forums and will do my best to make sure this one succeeds. I dont mind getting called out if I get too far off base.

Thanks Gunz. I think that would be a fair way to make the decision whether someone should be banned or just place in a time out for a period of time. However if it is blatant, I will take sole responsibility for the decision.

I think that is a great idea.

I think we saw an example of what happens when you put the inmates in charge of the jail. Some will self-regulate and some will try to take control. I honestly believe Will's heart was in the right place, but he trusted people who are not trustworthy. I've been watching it like it is some kind of sociological experiment that has had little success. These are the same people who have been squabbling for years, each blaming the other. (A) will say something that is certain to get a rise out of (B), and (B) will jump right in with both feet. Then it begins, and can go on for weeks. It may be entertainIng to readers for a while, but pretty soon, after everybody chooses sides and jumps into the fray, it gets old.

I hope that this forum will have the right balance of allowing freedom of speech and the very realistic expectation of people who can discuss and disagree while exercising self control. There are some people who cannot handle the responsibility of this expectation. We saw through Ghandi, Chrissy, et al, that self governing is just too much for some people to handle. It's like giving a three year old the keys to the car. Hopefully, putting the rules and expectations out front will be enough to frighten these folks away, especially now that they have their own sandbox where anything goes.

I've already seen examples of some great discussions here, as well as some great attitudes towards this place that is self-governing, fun and fair. This has a good chance of becoming a well-moderated, stimulating and interesting place to spend some time hanging out and discussing topics that are relevant, interesting or just fun.

I would hope that we will be the forum that puts all of the crap that has gone on, both recently and long ago, behind us. Maybe we can win back some of the interesting people we've lost because of the petty, juvenile crap that went on at PNJ and PDF. Sure, we will have disagreements. But I think, as Yella says, we can disagree without being disagreeable.

I am now disassembling my soap box and stepping down. Thank you for your time and attention. I hate public speaking Embarassed

Thanks, Ghost and those who choose to participate!

Sorry this is so long! Rolling Eyes

You're welcome, but please do not disassemble anything. We value your input.
