I object to my being banned because I posted a link to a copy of the Goat site.
Included in my posting a very clear warning that it should not clicked on in the presense of children.
I'm unable to quote my post verbatum, cause I'm banned from that forum.
I had no idea you could get banned for posting a link to objectional material.

I know this is you board and your moderators have a great deal of leeway in handling daily situations on the message board.

Well anyways, I'm probably typing into the wind, but I decided to post my thoughts hear anyways...........

If you were posting a link that you know had to be delivered with a warning, isn't that reason enough NOT to post such a thing ahead of time and could potentially get you in trouble? Just wondering...

The link was relevant to the topic.
I just pointed out the the operator had moved the site to a new host.
Anyone who went to the koru5hin article would find the same info.

PM the admin/mod that was dealt with your case. Don't start a thread, you won't get an answer here anyway.
I don't suffer from insanity, I enjoy every minute of it.

The Admin will only answer in a private message.
I didn't get an answer either way.
