yes, Lonely Planet. I told all of these travel snob/a-holes to go f#$@ themselves in the rudest most dirty lowdown way I could and wow to this day I can't get on the board. Unless I use a new ip address. Not to hard to do. I did get back on the boards after lying to the moderator about another person using my computer blah blah

Well, as everyone probably knows by now, I have not been banned but there was a public request that I be banned. Request was denied. I did end up on review for 4 months, until more of the medications cleared my system. But that was actually a separate incident, a few months after the first.

Never banned.

I reckon if I registered onto a New Zealand rugby board I could get banned pretty quickly.

Edit: Should I have mentioned that Cyburbia is the only forum I visit or participate in?

Not banned, but shunned from a bulletin board called Way Too Personal. Go there and ask about Elmwood. Good times.

Pretty much, I couldn't say the right thing to say my life, and it reached the point where any post of mine, was called into question, even if it seemed to agree with the collective POV on the bulletin board. It was a classic case of The Swarm.

I was banned from two forums, One I was asked to come back, the other I had to beg. I was a mod on both and both times there was a huge controversey.

I see jordanb lurking around on one of them every once in awhile, prehaps i'll ban him just for the hell of it ;)

You know, I never know how to take that coming from a guy: as rejection or begging.

You really need to get laid and get over your recent divorce. lol. I think you will be impossible until then. :)

This is also the first and only board I play on,

but I think it would be fun to find the right board on which to start shooting flames from my fingers.

I have had posts on www.onmilwaukee.com omitted because I bitched to strongly about a bar or restaurant. My guess is that they are advertisers on that site.

www.musicscene.org, a Minneapolis music messageboard. I was psuedo trolling. I was nominated "devil in disguise" of 2002 by the object of my trolling.

I was almost kicked off a green bay packer forum because i suggested that someone illegally post Packer articles that the local paper charges $30 a year for. I suggested that because the members wouldn't join my letter writing campaign to get the newspaper to stop charging for Packer coverage.

I used to go there a lot several years ago... the thorn tree bulletin was a favorite of mine for a long time. When I stopped traveling, I stopped visiting the board.

Not actually banned, but soon after I got engaged, I started hanging around the indiebride site. Had a bizarre talent to bring discussions to a screeching halt; ie I'd post a question or a response, and even if the conversation had been lively up to that point, it just stalled. For days. Never did get some of my questions answered.... Just gave up after a while. Weddings are such emotional things anyway, who knows.

My wife ran into similar problems at the "frugalbride" board...she just couldn't seem to get along with anyone over there.

Me, I've never been banned - but I've done some banning!

haven't been banned from any boards yet.. But I have been acused of "nazi mod" by a bunch of kids on one...(they were posting stupid sh*t on my forum and I stopped them... and they dare to whine)

On the contrary, if you could count the numerous times I've been banned in IRC... it'll be a big number..:p

Slightly OT:


I found most of those bride forums to be a bit too sugary and high octane for my tastes.

Several weeks ago I called up the Cyburbia Forums and couldn't log on! Oh Crap! I said, I've been Banned! But it was just a database meltdown and Dan had it fixed in a jiffy. So I am safe for now.

For now.

No forum bans, but there has been the odd incident on IRC...although it seems more common and not as serious there.

EDIT: Yay, my 100th post!

Cyburbia is the only board I've been on. But, I was once banned from the Brooksville (FL) Assembly of God (no, I was NOT a member) after the minister called me "evil" for firing one of his parishioners. That made it all the more fun...

Yeah, like fungus. I suggest you find a solution soon or we may both regret it. After I 'take root', it is hellaciously hard to get rid of me. Just ask my husband. He has been trying for years.:)

Which one? The Knot is horrid- either their blowing sunshine, saying your tastes are "NMS" (not my style), or you get some freak-o wishing cancer on someone and telling them their puke would clean someone up. *eye roll*

I've never been banned (don't get any ideas Chet-;) ) but I have posted some things that I wonder if it raised an eyebrow or two.. like invading a bike board with a group of girls and only posting pics of Richard SImmons.

MZ are you aware of the meaning of the word 'root' down under? To my eyes (and probably JNL's) you are describing both Chet's problem and Chet's solution.

Uh, no. I don't speak Australian. Is that something you can explain publicly without violating any porn laws? Or do you need to give it to me (the EXPLANATION, that is) Privately?:)

I seem to remember the cyburbia collective being banned from the Huston planning (oxymoron?) discussion board. If I recall correctly, they basically shut the site down. That qualifies as a ban. So fess up if you were there and have counted yourself as never being banned.

Thanks REM and JNL. Somehow, that is ironically fitting as I have told my husband for many years that is exactly why he hasn't thrown all my shit out onto the front lawn yet.

Do you have the "Ministry in a Box product that includes everything you need to start your ministry and your ordination is legally recognised"? That sounds like a marvellous box.

No, but I do have a marvelous box. I do have a "clergy" parking pass, which comes in handy when I visit relatives in the hospital. I was offended when Prudence got one, but then I realized its value.

I have never been banned from a website, but my dog club was banned from returning to Steak and Ale after the meeting caused such a ruckous. I was only there for the food.

Never Banned !!!

I've never been banned from anything, although I was removed for a fountain in downtown San Antonio by the police. I never set foot (or other body part) within a San Antonio fountain since.

I've also urinated on the Eiffel Tower. I didn't get caught. Perhaps I should resume my life long ambition of relieving myself on significant international landmarks (ala Ozzy).
