    It would be useful to have a list of people with a current forum ban, and how long the bans are for.

    So what if they do get flooded with comments and questions - no one has to answer them and it would be more interesting than most of the small print here. Let the inquisitors stand inquisitive and to hell with providence I say! It might even liven things up around here, you never know.

    I think Russ and Co. are under a 'Site Ideas' forum ban.

    This place must be like a trip to the in-laws for them.

    1. What satisfaction is there in martyrdom? I can't see anyone getting banned just to get on the banned list.

    2. At least there'd be some dialogue in forum threads then, at the moment the forums are totally dead.

    And it'd be something useful we could do with our rotten tomatoes ...

    I agree the threads are dead.

    I've tried rattling a few cages but nobody bites anymore.
    'cept of course the wierd ones who haunt the Religeous Forums
    and even then it's boring as you are always arguing with a closed mind.

    You could just make up a banned list and post it in the General forum
    and anyone on the list who posts we all pretend we cannot see his
    post and they will think they really have been banned.

    I wonder if Russ and his gang have actually left the site and
    nobody is running things anymore.

    Hello.....


    Anybody there..........

    These forums are nothing but a headache and full of agitators and pissants. Why would they bother with them when they can just as easily ignore them and still collect the cheques on a daily basis?

    When the banned forum list gets posted your name will be on it.

    Sorry to disappoint - still here.

    And no chance of publishing currently banned people - it would serve no useful purpose.

    Hi Russ,

    Welcome back.

    We thought you were lost in the Pacific on the good yacht RHP.
    Destined to roam forever across the watery wastes with a broken compass.

    Darvlay told me to write that post with 'Hello......Anybody there....'

    The Database is getting an update.

    The PGN thing is not getting fixed.

    50/50 is OK at least it will give me another full year of something
    to complain about.

    I would list that as one of the many "minor" things that need sorting out.
