    He made some materially untrue statements regarding an illness and it's treatment,which would have been offensive and upsetting to anyone suffering from it.

    Thankfully he no longer posts here.

    Was that the Aids thread?

    Is it by choice that he no longer posts?

    I think that any further on this is best left to the forum administrator....my answer was discreet and succinct.

    Looking back on it, a good bit before "that" post, he was beginning to adopt the symptoms of a troll i reckon.

    Its a shame if anyone gets banned ....it`s more interesting reading diverse opinions whether you agree with them or not .....

    No-one ever gets banned from here for expressing an opinion about world affairs, politics, religion or similar but unfortunately some people have served time outs for the manner in which their opinions are expressed

    Spare a thought for those of us that have to keep order when these opinions get out of hand. We have to see both sides of the discussion.

    Banning is a last resort, but some people just will not be polite or respect others opinions. Whats ok or funny to one person may be deeply offensive to another and everybody needs to respect that.

    perhaps we could have a section where people can go to 'discuss' things on the understanding that they don't mind if it gets a bit heated sometimes......seems to me both sides give as good as they get. Don't think I'd bother going there as most of those threads end up exactly the same with opinionated people stating and restating their views and it is clear that neither side really listens to the other...but hey they seem to enjoy it!

    It would spill over in to general chat. And would cause certain member that seem to have grudges with other members.

    Also bad behaviour is not confined to General Chat I have known member troll others round the forum and post negative comments.

    Dont think I've ever been offended by anyone although one or two have tried to wind me up. I take it all with a pinch of salt now and try not to react negatively. This forum is far too useful to let go of for the sake of ones pride

    So Master Rahl has moved on due to bad behaviour. I always thought he had been well brought up, at least he seemed to be well reared.

    just read that properly - nice one Doc :smashin:


    Master Rahl and Chard!!! i thought i hadn't seen them for a while - they both made me want to smash up my PC with their opinions.

    shame their gone i like a good laugh.


    so in the spirit of their leaving:

    "i think that all left wing woolly liberals should be rounded up and but in camps furthermore unless you prove your ancestry for at least 10 generations you are an immigrant and should be deported as a potenail terrorist. Furthermore, George Bush is has the greatest brain in the history of human kind and we should all follow his example."

    Dam and blast - see i cant spout this rubbish with any kind of conviction. Hopefully we can rely on the other right wingers to step up, but one of the most entertaining hasn't posted since April - let hope he hasn't gone as well.

    i thought Army Bloke was Family Guy now - or have i walked into a time warp?

    and Confucius hasn't posted since April - another term of Mr Blair must have sent him over the edge :D

    That's fair enough then, he's probably busy. It seems that some of us don't spend our entire lives in front of the AV Forums. :blush:

    Adrenochrome has been busy lately too so :hiya: to all of those members who are actually enjoying their summer. :)

    Hey, leave FG alone! He's not really right wing, more pro army. For the obvious reasons...... Confucius right wing!? He's more extreme than that! :D ;)
