If it does happen ,it will be because you optioned that your action on the forum was more important than the rules and membership of the forum. And this would be true for anyone who made such a decision. The rules are very simple, but some feel that they wish to be the center of attention by violating them rather than attract the attention by their knowledge and helpfulness. If you want to be a forum member, than act like it. If you don't, then why court a banning rather than just leave it on your own volition.In lieu of recent events, I'm fairly certain I'm next in line.
Some may think that Doug was just spouting words, but those who know him better, knows that he means this
So heads up folks. Start acting like the decent and respectful people I always thought you to be.
with all of his heart. he really does think that every member is a decent and respectful person. It is a disappointment to him when action has to be taken, but it will if necessary, and everyone knows it.

Thank you for your comment. I know that if the membership all got together at a meeting in the physical world, we would all get along very well. On a forum, everything we post will be in some archive someplace for a long long time. Joking, sarcasm, kidding, whatever word one might use is very difficult to indicate in writing. Emoticons help a little, but being an international forum, culture and language, can cause misunderstandings. Often in a thread, there will be someone asking that the thread be deleted or closed, but the owner and administrator is very tolerant, as long as the rules are followed. I consider it easy to help moderate this forum because so many are nice guys, even when a newbie is sure they have a 1943 "magnetic" copper lincoln since their granpa gave it to them, and take the time to post correct information in a decent way. Some of us are young , and some are much older, and most inbetween, but respect for others build respect for oneself. Ok, I am leaving the pulpit for a while
