    My warning points were lifted as of today...and I am back to posting.

    I know I could have posted while the warning points were there, but I felt that if my "offense" was dire enough (I thought it was nowhere near dire) for a 6 month warning, I should just do the right thing and ban myself.

    I did ask to have the warning points lifted...but the moderators declined.

    I agree they did the right thing.

    I'll do my best to post without breaking any rules...although in these trying times, that can sometimes be a mighty task.

    I'm up to it.

    I'll never catch up to the many notifications I've gotten since I shut down 6 months ago, and I am not even going to try.

    My first post will undoubtedly be about Trump...and why I think his conduct to be impeachable.

    Delighted to be back. I missed all of youse (hey, I'm from New Jersey)...including the ones with whom I occasionally bump heads.

    Hi Frank,
    You've been around longer than me, so your past, for me, starts today. Welcome back and have fun.

    What did you say that was so awful? I mean in general, we don't want another warning....

    I got banned for a month after what I feel was a BS call by a mod, but I didn't try disputing it beyond initially disagreeing with him. It was a nice little break from the Trump fray, though.

    there's no such thing as a bs warning nor banishment...

    we were all invited into this home built by the owners, and when you enter someone else's home & subsequently p*ss on the floor rather than using the toilet, expect to be tossed out...

    if they think it's an infraction then it is, plain & simple, no need to quibble over it in public...

    it is human nature, we all step on someone else's toes every now & again...

    Thanks.
    Don't even remember! I thought my comment to be innocuous, but as mentioned below, if they call it an infraction...it is.

    Yeah...I made a joke that someone didn't get resulting in points so I simply left until they expired. Now I just leave my humor for other places and so far so good.

    Easy for you to say. I didn't piss on any floor. I made a commend about Trump sycophants and a certain mod decided I was talking about forum posters when that wasn't my intention. It was a discussion about Scaramucci.

    wording is key...

    ie: stating democrats are a-holes is against the rules, stating that the dnc are a-holes is ok...

    & then we get into the whole 'circumventing the censor software' bs...

    best to be yourself, staying true to yourself...

    most of all, don't challenge the rulings in public, nor bring them up in public

    Can I ask where one finds their 'warning points' if they have any?

    on your profile page

    edit: if you have any warnings, there'll be a warnings tab, click it to view what & why & points.
    the shaded ones are expired and no longer count toward a vacation/holiday

    Welcome back, bro, though I never consciously noticed you.

    BTW: the last part of your post sounds like you're accepting dictatorship. :D

    I know that in almost all Internet forums the operator's personal opinion is law. They can kick you out at will, but that's okay since it's their forum and membership is free.

    Well sir, I cannot honestly say I recall you, but that will have a lot more to do with me, than you. I have a feeling we will be marching in the same direction most of the time
