What kind of Site do we want for BRP Central?

My mistake, forgot that person, so my statement was incorrect. Concerning the "secrecy", I'm not sure whether it is useful or unuseful, but my thinking is that publicly stating that a member has gotten a warning (or in the case we're talking about a temp ban) does not neccesarily reduce tempers. 

Well, I think we have to agree to disagree on this subject.

My questions were answered in full. My objections also stay in full, but I see no reason to continue the discussion, as this could lead someone to looking for the transcripts of the "episode" on the internet. And believe me, it is not "educational".

I agree fully.

I was the person who got a temp ban. It had nothing to do with the thing that is mentioned in this thread.

I countered something Jeff said in the BRP general area and was given a temp ban for trolling. There were no death threats, just an analogy using feces (related to https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-7459963/Scientists-try-fail-make-KNIFE-frozen-faeces.html).

I was not given the opportunity to explain my post, just given a temp ban. 

I do not condone threats in any form. We are a community of people talking about pretend things.

I am only posting here because I feel it is better to move on and not carry baggage in a place where people gather to talk about pretend things.

Cheers.

You're not the one. With a temp ban one is restricted from logging in (for a month). Following one or two warning points one is restricted from posting, but not from logging in (for a day or a week).

But I do remember it because he impersonated me, too. I think he is still around and behaves as a gentleman now. These are instead classic examples of how an episode trespassed the limits of acceptability but was handled in a swift and universally accepted way. Everyone agreed with Sverre's actions at the time, and everything was done openly.

That guy that hounded @soltakss years ago and even impersonated him? Can't remember his name. Somehow I don't think that's what was meant by 'the gold old days' though.

Nah, he wasn't banned for that, as far as I know. Triff found it funny when I mentioned it to him at a convention just afterwards. It was mildly irritating and I probably deserved it. He's been a good boy for absolutely ages, as far as I can remember.

Looks like a kinky Ice Hockey team, or some Arctic porn story.

<heh>

As I recall, there was something in the original "fuck ICE" post along the lines of "light a candle in the window -- two if by sea -- and stay up all night fucking ICE."

... which I found a decidedly more friendly sentiment than I had expected...  😂
