    Is that a baseball bat with a sledgehammer head on it?

    How about using those beach pics of Ms. Theuriau?

    So who creates all the hilarious kitty pics?

    And what's the backstory on this decolletage newscaster?

    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    We aim to please!

    Hey, if we have to be bothered by dealing with all of the spam, etc., then we should at least have some fun with it.

    "Oh, that is all well and good, but, voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country."

    There's only one as far as I'm concerned. (He made a cool Lithuanian sea captain, as well.)

    This is probably far too small and grainy to use, but I love this image:

    An offering to Our Great Leader

    I just stumbled upon this GIF. May come in handy in a future banning.

    A question

    When someone gets zapped with the banhammer, does that preclude all future access to Cyburbia? I am wondering if the subjects of the ban postings get to view and enjoy their stardom.

    They can still visit the site and see all the threads and posts that unregistered visitors can see, but of course they can't post, send private messages, or do any other fun things. A message explaining why they were banned will be displayed above the page header. Despite this, some still try to post messages; they'll see an error message if they click on the "Reply" or "New thread" buttons.

    We announce the bannings because:

    1) It's fun.
    2) We want other Cyburbians to know what we're doing to keep the site free of spam.
    3) It's a service to other forum operators, many of which investigate new users by searching for their usernames and IP numbers. Cyburbia's ban threads are usually near the top of search results.

    Anonymous bannings

    http://www.cyburbia.org/forums/showthread.php?t=33635

    Seems like Dan just want's to kick off people off cyburbia for no reason.

    I am extremely pissed. None of my posts since I joined have been offensive or out of line (or at least no one has suspended me yet). I put up with enough bullshit as a planner, and will not put up with it in a forum.

    Hink, people make jokes at my expense all the time, and I enjoy them as long as they are funny..

    Sorry, but I draw the line on this one. It was totally inappropriate, immature, and unprofessional. People pushed my buttons, and I am extremely angry (it takes a lot to get me upset).
