While we try to run a fairly loosely moderated board, we still do have rules, so besides the obvious spammers and link droppers that we ban, we also must act on specific and clear violations of our rules and today, for only the fourth time in seven years we IP banned a member.

Please remember rights to the board and community participation is a privilege that is given freely based on good faith, it's your right to loose. But, once the rules are violated then that privilege and membership is removed via an IP ban.

While it is sad to lose a member, the purpose of our community is much greater than one person and their ill regard and lack of respect of the rules. So as a friendly reminder, please make sure you re-read the rules and adhere to them, we only want our family to keep growing. .
