    I've been here since year 2005, under a different handle. Under that differnet handle I recieved infractions for posting words like (verbatim) FUGG and AXX. This was back in the years where infractions were handed out like candy. from about 2007 thru 2009. Then, for an unknown reason to me, the infractions became virtualy non existant which was a refreshing change!!

    Now in the last week, I see several well respected longtime TTR members with infractions. It's not my house and I understand fully that the site owner can either permit or ban anyone, but I just dont get handing out infraction points to guys who really contribute alot to this forum by making a thousand helpfull/informative posts for every one that circumvents a censor, like typing the word "fugg".

    6 months ago I got a 10 pointer for posting an opinion in a reply to a political type thread, that the original thread starter didnt place in the correct forum. The reason for my infraction was "Belongs in politics" (forum). I wasnt aware that by me replying to a thread that the OP posted in the wrong forum, deserved infractions on my part.

    The content posted here varies from newbs to seasoned vets, so there is valued info for all kinds, which makes TTR a good site on many levels, for many people.

    Could we limit the infractions to spammers and other axx holes who have a history of disrepectfull posts or are otherwise obviously asking for the boot?

    The one thing that happened was that in April of 2009 the forum was sold and a new owner took over. At that time we changed a few things around here and relaxed some of the rules a little to make the user experience more enjoyable here.

    I am not sure which longtime members you are referring to but if they have received infractions I am sure it was earned.

    I just reviewed the infraction you received, the post you made was WAY past what's acceptable in the general part of the forum. We like to keep things as close to PG13 as we can, and your post was why past what was acceptable for where that thread was located at the time you made the post.



    I hope that answers most or your questions.
    Let me know if you have other questions and I'll do my best to answer them.
     
    Admin and Winchester Magnum Thank this.

    I was gonna tell you I know, but I've done forgot...:biggrin_25523:

    Nobody should be exempt from an infraction regardless of how much knowledge they have or share. Some people think they know it all and become arrogant, that can become a problem. An infraction is basically a kick in the pants to bring these people back to reality.

    Nobody's perfect!

    Just keep it clean and professional like you are at the receiver trying to get unloaded. **** works wonders. You sensor you own words and don't fight. Just go to the next thread.
