I'm a little chagrined to see that so many are banned from this forum. I thought this place regarded itself as the antiScum.
Huh?! Are you referring to the small handful of people from our Member List, or Morgbug and Mainland from several posts back?
Chewbacca - what makes JD different from RS, is that we have zero tolerance for people who come over here just to start $h!t, of which we've had several from Rebelscum. Whereas Scum would just let their bad behavior slide, resulting in flame wars and disgruntled forum members, we usually give the offending member one firm warning if they're lucky, and if they keep it up, they're TOAST. We don't screw around with idiots here, especially trolls. So in that respect, we are very much
the "anti-scum" that you just mentioned.
If you were referring to Morgbug and Mainland, the whole Morgbug "banning" is just a running joke here. Brent was never banned. When I personally invited him over here to JD, we had some big whacky problems with his login and password, that kept Brent from being able to access the site for about 5 days. We all joked with him that he was banned. Inside joke. That's all it was, and will continue to be. He never was banned, and is actually one of our closest buddies around the JD forum here.
As for Mainland, he wasn't banned either. He was suspended for about a week however, for basically turning our forums into his personal chatroom. We asked him a few times to stop with the random chatty one-liners, and he didn't, so we suspended him briefly. Only time we've ever done that. He's returned, and isn't "chatting" on the boards like before, so everything's cool. Again, this is very much an "anti-Scum" practice, since they generally have no problem with people just mindlessly chatting away on their boards. We however prefer quality over quantity here at JD.
Hopefully I've answered whatever your question or issue was, but if not, feel free to PM me or any of the staff!
