Hi everyone!

I've been lurking the past couple days and think this board is very interesting. Never thought I'd say this, but I can appreciate the fact they won't tolerate personal attacks, which keeps everyone [most times] focused on the issues. I used to be opposed to banning, but it does seem to keep the rails on the track. The only thing I'd do differently, for what it's worth, is give someone that's banned a 2nd chance. Make it a 'time out' for a week or 2 (except spammers/porn offenders) and if there's a 2nd offense, they're off the island for good.

(Sandra J.: I particularly enjoy your posts. Insert 3 thumbs up emoticons!)

Wow, what a friendly bunch! Welcome, Grace... I appreciate your feedback and have been thinking about various forms of "grace" periods :lol: for users who have been banned. To be honest, though, before this past month, there have only been three people in the system as "banned". It is not something I do lightly.

I do appreciate your suggestions, though.

Noted Josh. I didn't realize there were so few bannings and in retrospect my suggestion is out of turn. But thanks for your consideration nonetheless.

Thanks for the welcome everyone.

And wijim :wink:
