    I remember when they first made the reputation comments transparent(revealed the names)It was quite an eye opener-(I think there must have been some red faces--Lets face it -behind the scenes emails to gang up is a bit on the dark side--I dont think I was the only one to be surprised at this.--It kind of makes it a bit harder to pre judge bannings

    h2so4--things may be getting more exciting if Mon (US time)doesnt pull out of this potential dive..

    Hopefully you find my posts helpful, but in no way should they be construed as advice. Make your own decision.

    Really that's quite interesting re the behind the scenes stuff you mention. Some people obviously have too much time on their hands.
    Hard to moderate when you have that going on to contend with as well.

    It's only a small group which are ruining it for others and quite honestly I may even post these emails so you can see who they are and what has been said, - think you'll change you opinion fast after that!


    BTW - you're spot-on with your last paragraph.

    You may wish to consider limiting off-topic ramblings. A few threads I have come across in the past have had large numbers of posts between 2 or 3 authors that drift considerably from specific share/market/company discussions. "The lounge" would be an appropriate place for such conversations

    Hard to moderate as determination can be somewhat subjective

    Some times the ramblings can be a bit like the AGMs I attend.
    You often pick up more after the meeting than during it.!! .

    Ignore this post and me if I continue to ask dumb questions.

    Just as a matter of interest, is there an ignore button option on sharetrader? With that we could self regulate.

    Don't we have enough "rules" in our lives without having to worry about being banned from an online forum for upsetting someone.
    I have to say I agree with you, Bannings for the most part will work against the forum,whilst some silly stuff gets posted,there are some knowledgable people being banned that I quite enjoy reading their comments.
    I feel the forum in the most part, should be self governing with Vince only dishing out a short term ban for serious offences, of which I'm sure everyone knows what they would be.
    Vince your banning of g1 permanently,even though there were (emails),is a bit tough mate.
    Everyone has the right to ignore anyone they think is going overboard,I think bannings for the most part are doing a disservice to the richness of this forum.
    A list of etiquete (sp) on the front page,plus the 1 thing that will get you a short term ban of 2 weeks,(very serious though,not just an opinion) I think would be enough and trial it for a year.
    And the 1 thing that could get you that ban -- Abuse of any kind. including swearing.
