    Some on this site make mocking others their only goal. Be it lecturing "you girls" or other digs that don't seem to catch a moderator's eye. Then when we respond, we're warned and booted from the thread. The thread dies because the mocker has succeeded in doing what he came to do.

    The point being, there is no way to engage in a debate or any kind of a discussion once this Master of Mocking has entered the arena. That is something that should be addressed but isn't.

    I realize it's something you may not be able to fix, Knight, but what is happening now is failing to address the real problem. You can smack down the many, but still leave the problem in place. Not very encouraging to the regular folks on here.

    TOL has a lot of potential. Perhaps an outside auditor could share some ideas with you that would help TOL expand.

    Um, aren't you the guy who thinks TOL is comprised of about three or four people in total and currently has a bet going on with your "co worker" who actually thinks TOL is simply just the one person full stop?!

    I thought it was funny, and fitting, in fact. But, my vote don't count.

    Artie violated the rules of the forum, and got banned for it.

    If you have a problem with the rules, then you need to talk with @Knight.

    Thanks, I know we've had our run ins but I think we can both agree that things have taken a turn for the worse on here lately.

    She wasn't. You seem to be determined to pull the ban button at the drop of the hat and if you think that was harassment in relation to aCW then you confuse it with observation. Tell me JR, do you consider it "good behaviour" to be going around telling people that TOL is a place run by a handful of people and that he's having a bet with a "co worker" who thinks TOL is just the one person? I picked him up on it because on the one hand he's saying that TOL has a lot of potential when on the other he's effectively accusing Knight of running a sham where 98% of posters are sock accounts. More than a bit rich wouldn't you say not to mention insulting even just to the admin here? If you weren't so keen to find excuses to bring the ban hammer down you may have been objective enough to notice that.

    Quite...

    No, he didn't and frankly if TOL is at a crossroads then with you in the moderating seat it's not gonna be long before it turns into a cul-de-sac. I'm pretty sure Knight wouldn't have given me the boot for that post to aCW considering.

    On that note it's been fun on TOL while it lasted, for all the friends made and heated battles it was certainly an invaluable place to be at a certain time in my life. Time to move on from it now though. Peace to one and all.

    Twice now artie has been given an infraction and a temporary ban

    Twice now artie has made a sock to come back and have the last word

    Used to be that was grounds for a permaban - has that policy changed?
