Hi Manuel

I had noticed his absence unless he has changed his handle??

There is so much politics on this forum, understandbly, just now - maybe he is having a vacation from it.

On the politics front I am thoroughly bored with our little Scottish Independence Referundum and we have another 2 years to go.

The USA, to an interested outsider, just finishes with one Presidential election and then the next campaign seems to start almost immediatel

When you do the crime, you gotta do the time. I'm sure he will be back soon.

Sadly that's not the case here. Severl warnings were given for breaking the rules, and he chose to ignore them.

Rather he chose to publicly argue the points on our boards.

He received a suspension. Not a lifetime ban (as he tried to say).

There are rules, and they apply to everyone. No one can simply do and say whatever they want on the message boards. No one has any right to come in and tell the site what the rules should be.

You can't attack other posters at will, and you can't argue the rules when you've been told you broke them.

It would be unfortunate if Laker's Fan decided not to return to be a part of this community. But, if so, it simply means he is unwilling to respect our rules of the road. That is his choice to make.

An explanation for my not posting :

Kuki banned me for 10 days and added 2 additional days . Supposedly because of my political stance and that I posted a quote from the movie National Lampoon's Animal House .

When I joined CM my screen name was Canarsie43 .However I forgot my password and re-registered as Henry 43 .
During the 10 day ban I discovered that Canarsie 43 was still usable and I used it to explain that I was banned ,thus causing an additional 2 days .
I've been told by Kuki that if a person receives 6 infractions that constitutes a lifetime ban .I've received 7 .
I cannot continue to post on CM ,it will be like "walking on eggshells."
The only way I would continue would be if Kuki removes the 7 infractions .If he chooses to do so I will no longer post anything political.

During the time I've been away I've been working on a literary blog .A friend of mine has a blog that is read by people all over the world .
This sunday I am doing a guest blog under my real name .Manuel read a rough draft a few days ago .
If anyone is interested in reading the blog you can send me a PM and if Kuki has not permanently banned me I will respond sunday night (unless hurricane Sandy hits here) .
If you have my e-mail address and want the link to the blog please e-mail me .

Should this be my last post I want to thank CM for allowing me to meet some wonderful people .

I've met Manuel and his wife socially 7 times and they will be lifelong friends .
I've gotten to know Todd re telephone and hope one day to be able to meet him in person .
I've met Tom and his wife (people who post on occasion) and they are wonderful people .
I've been e-mailing lately with a female regular and I will continue to do so .
People who I enjoy posting to include:Moderator Donna ,Moraine ,Bob ,Kat ,Aerogirl and others .

I wish everyone a wonderful life with health and happiness .

Well, that's an "interesting" interpretation of events

First off I'll address your post under user name Canrasie 43. That post ONLY addressed a complaint about Paul and the way he chooses to manage the message board policies.

NOWHERE in that post did you mention getting banned, or that you were posting about your "other user name" Lakers Fan. Nor did you even identify yourself as Lakers Fan.

We keep all questionable posts in a folder that all staff can see. All of the posts that were deleted, and posts you were given warnings about are there.

No posts are ever deleted because of political views (in the Open Debate forum). However, personal attacks are infractions; whether the personal attacks are made against other posters, or moderators and staff.

After the initial infractions were given, you simply continued to complain about receiving them, in your posts.

If anyone wants to question the policies of how the message boards are operated, they are free to do so via private email.

However, for people to assume they are free to do so on our message boards only proves a lack of understanding of the rules, and shows disrepect for a site (and it's established rules) that is provided to you to use free of charge.

Infraction points expire after 12 months.







You were in fact given several warnings before you were given any infractions. After receiving

Laker's Fan, I wanted to post and wish you well in whatever you decide to do. It has not always been easy communicating with you, but I did learn something, so that's a good thing.

Take care, and God Bless

Soon there will be nobody left, and no reason to post.
The moderators can talk amongst themselves.
