   We have had to ban a few members recently for behavior that was very inappropriate. This included PMs and emails as well as post on the BB.  I am not going to name names or point fingers, but this is just a reminder that this BB is read by many busnuts including women and a few children. 
   Bad behavior will not be tolerated. "That's just the way I am" is not an excuse.  If I said "I always start my post with You Are A Jerk, because that is just the way I am" does not make it OK.
   1st bans have ranged from 30-60 days. Future misbehavior has resulted in 1 year bans and it is possible to be banned permanently.
    Please, lets keep this a pleasant place for all to come to.  If someone post something you do not like, just ignore it and don't keep it going by retaliating with a similar post.  Jack

Well said, Jack.

I for one, have a lot of respect for the way the administrators run this BB.  Somebody has to be the leader and keep us in line.  Thanks for all you do.

Uhh for you curiosity seekers, I'm still here and to my knowledge have made little to no trouble, caused little to no harm, made very few to no enemies and have not been banned!

Thanks Jack! Not sure what happened or who was involved and really could care less! I figure if men can't act like men, then they need to be gone (with a nudge from you guys) as obviously some have and some have even left on their own! Good choice on thier part!

I have not been on the board as much lately so I luckily missed it. I agree that this board needs to remain beyond reproach and unblemished from posters who lack respect and civility towards others. I wish to express again, my gratitude, to the moderators for their time and diligence in ensuring this board is a place where everyone feels welcome, and everyone has the ability to advance and share their knowledge of this quirky hobby.

I'm mad at you! No, I guess actually I am mad at me because I missed out on the big jam sessions down there in Florida!

I feel that I have led such a very sheltered life.  I have been here for many years and I have NEVER seen a post that rose to the level of.....whatever, that is being discussed here.  I guess I am lucky or blind cause I know the difference in civility and non behavior.  You moderators MUST be doing a great job.  Either that or you guys have been funn'in me all this time.  I think Not.

Thank you for you service and concern for us,

John

Thanks Jack and other mods for all you do!

It's just said that we who are adults have to be babysat, we should know better!

I guess it's easy to flame someone when we are not face to face, and this is such a flat medium.

I try very hard to treat others as I would want to be treated, a sign of respect.

Keep up the good work guys, we appreciate it! Wink

How True!   Just like Dogs, the barking Dog seldom, if ever bites, its the quiet one you have to watch!

Great!  I have been too busy building my new bus barn, and drivers lounge to keep up on all this, and now I am going to have to see who's not posting.  And then, maybe, be disappointed its not who I thought........ Grin

Good Job Moderators....
