I might get banned for starting this topic, though it wont matter because I'll just get a new nick. But I'm just curious to know who has been banned before.

I was banned for a month by Tormod. It was supposed to be permanent, but then someone replied to my topic on ASP.NET, so Tormod lifted my ban to respond to the post. I was just about to get a new nick...

It would be cool to be the only one banned here... gives a 'bad boy' impression although I'm the least that (?).

So who else has got banned?

No, Tinny, I lifted your ban because we all wanted you back. It was boring here without you. Posted Image

We have only ever banned 5 people - 1 who posted commercials, 2 who were violating our FAQ in everything they did, 1 because of a debate going into an endless loop, and you because (well, you know why!). Of those 1 was lifted immediately since the ban was a mistake, and I think you're the only member of the exclusive club of "ex-bannees". Posted Image

As for "just getting a new nick" - lol. There are other ways to stop people, you know. I wouldn't try it. But then again you won't need it because there is no way we're banning you now! You're one of the gang now.

To ban a person, I thought you band their IP, and not their nick,

I don't understand about the IP part. does that mean whoever uses my computer cannot log on? I mean, I don't have internet at home. I go to the computer lab at my school. that's why I only log on on weekdays.

No, Tinny, I lifted your ban because we all wanted you back. It was boring here without you.

Yeah right.......... I was sure you were so fed up with me posting all that crap.

But then again you won't need it because there is no way we're banning you now

Is that a privilege? If I repeat what I did, I'll not be banned? That would be interesting to try out... See if Tormod keeps his promise...Posted Image

So what are you saying here Tinny? Your personal philosophy is such that the best thing you feel you can do here is be so much of a problem that the only solution left to Tormod, who just wants to have a site that helps people, is to be forced into banning you? Is that truly what your view of life promotes?

I see the tounge-emoticon but no - nobody is excempt from the banning. We just don't want to use it because people should always get a second chance. If they blow that chance...well, then it's bye-bye.

So if we banned you school pc by IP, you would in effect stop everyone using that computer from signing up or logging in.

By the way...I am NOT the only one who can ban people at Hypography. IrishEyes and Uncle Martin also has this ability and knowing Irish I'd be very, very careful.

Yeah, I am SUCH a BANNER, right??

I've been itching to ban someone since Uncle Martin did it a few months back. It's just NOT fair, everyone that CAN ban,HAS banned, except me! So go ahead, Tinny...or anyone else...PLEASE give me a reason!!

One other thing...

Tinny, right after I got here, I almost got banned. I made Tormod mad because I misspelled his name a few times, and he threatened to ban me. Does that count? Of course, i apologized, and he made me a Moderator. Go figure... Posted Image

Yeah, I remember that. I think you had a duel with TOrmod about fossil evidences for evolution, Hutton etc.. AT first I thought it was deliberate (Tar - Mud). Posted Image

No, it wasn't deliberate, not at all! Posted Image Seriously though, after I said sorry, he was very nice about it, admitting that people all over the world mispronounce or incorrectly spell his name quite often.

The argument was actually with Freethinker (go figure!), right after we both joined. TormOd joined in and asked why nobody argued with HIM, since he was also not a believer in God. So I directed a few remarks to him, but was not careful enough with my 'spill chicker' and almost got myself banned (honestly, I think the almost-ban had a lot to do with calling them psuedo-intellectuals though - oops!)Posted Image. After I got his post accepting my apology, I felt really welcome here. When the site editor makes it a point to make you feel welcome, you really don't have the chance to leave, do you?

In the end noone will remember that I am a robot.

I'd like to know who writes your programming, T. Is it Yvonne? She deserves more credit than I've given her so far, and that's saying something!

Hm. If had a penny for every member who mailed me angry notices about your horrible posting style I'd be a fairly RICH robot.
