Except accept is written accept, not except. Yo.:na:
I flunked Engrish, and my spell checker doesn't always know what I'm talking about. :tinfoil:

I used to drink Scotch, does that count? :beer:

I would comment on the rest line-by-line, but I'll just pick up on this. You're staying with Craig, right? Be sure to visit us on Laserchat at some point on one of his many PCs.

I say, a tempban should be placed is when a "multiple account" violation is noticed, and permanent ban one of the accounts.
Or 2 WORTWHILE violations and your out for good.
I know when I got banned for the misunderstanding of multiple accounts, I tried to get on via proxy to contact a mod, but later on just used the "Contact Us"

Not that anybody would consider me here anyway.

"IMO a temp ban has a second chance built into it-and that should go away if a second violation occurs."

Give he or her a chance would be better.
If a second violation occurs, that would be intolerable

This thread is almost a year old. Are you trying to stir the pot?

And if what you say is true you'd see many key people disappear.

Heh, many key people are disappearing.
Your tendency toward exaggeration appears to be intact

It also looks like some old friends are becoming active again ;)

And how am I exaggerating? I can name five vets off the top of my head right now that want nothing/little to do with this place anymore.

I can probably name 20 that have left since I came here, maybe more

It is the nature of the forum that people come and people go

Sometimes, they come back
Sometimes they don't

Focusing on a limited slice of time and making judgements belies the true nature of the forum

This is an "entry level" science forum.
As people mature, they tire of the repetitious nature of the inquiries and look elsewhere.

The truth is, that veterans were leaving before you came here and will be leaving after you and I are gone

The exaggeration comes from labeling 5 as "many."
EVERY day, over 5,000 people visit this forum
5/5,000 doesn't constitute "many" to me

Even if you just want to focus on veterans, there are ~150 veterans
5/150 still doesn't make it to the label "many."

Some veterans will leave
New veterans will take their places

Some veterans just take "vacations"

Peace,
dave
