Well....i was making a passing comment (that I believe to be true). I mean, if you look around you don't see any zorgon, gools, proto, etc, etc,
I have no idea what they did or didn't do...just observing their absence, wishing they were still here. I get banning the members that create havoc.
But we are talking about members that seem to have been solid contributors. Maybe they had a few moments of bad judgement...with all the material
given (and views driven) why not try to work out terms with people instead of just dropping the ban hammer?
I honestly have no idea. I don't want to create a stir about the issue, because I don't want to get banned. And it seems like the process is
arbitrary enough, there is that fear. Then i ask myself, "Why the hell do you have fear over being banned from a website?" Im not talking about a
Blair Witchesque webcam of "Im soo scared.....", but more like, "Man, that would suck if that happened".
Then I remind myself of conversations I have had with site owners (Springer in particular), and I feel a little guilt for not giving them more credit.
And I want to believe that I should....but it nags me that members who contribute, and don't really seem to cause trouble, get banned. And it makes
me feel fairly disposable here.
Like i said, i know it is silly to have any anxiety over something like that. But I DO like it here...i just wish it was more clear how things were,
that this member driven site seemed to have more value for members that actually drive the site.
