This thread and the moderator thread it spawned have really taken a turn for the hilarious. Now we have a bunch of regulars deciding how and when to exclude outsiders, all the while patting themselves on the back for being gracious and tolerant enough to have an open discussion about how they want to exclude outsiders. Thank you for the lesson in irony, LOL. Certain mullahs in Tehran, quite frankly, are more welcoming of disparate voices and democratic process.
I also find it hilarious that it's been virtually admitted that there is no objective standard for "ban-worthy behavior." The poster mentioned by Scentless escaped banning because no regulars complained about him/her. Say what you want so long as you don't run afoul of Miss P and her ilk. Then you're banned, even if all you did was disagree with them about, say, whether or not a faulty test at Drake university should be re-administered or something.
Peace out, people. I want to hang with you about as much as you want to hang with me.
