    I don't like the political forum, politics or political discussion.

    is there any way I can stop them from showing up in my "new threads" search?

    ahhhh, thanks, NOW I get it.. and I understand to.. the quality of our pofo has fallen beyond sight this election, and the tit for tat threads are kinna embarrassing. It will take at least an admin, perhaps Muck or Celtkin, our webmasters who have all the v-bullitan buttons. Be patient, one will jump in here and give it a go..

    No, not really. There is a chance that if I ban you from POFO that you will not see the new threads. We can give that a shot if you'd like.

    EDIT:Muck already did what I suggested. :)

    meanwhile, some of us are suddenly banned from the PoFo who never asked to be, never insulted anyone in particular, and received no notification or warning as to why they no longer have access to said forum... FH, TP... history repeats... if a warning was issued in some thread, it's kinda hard to view it when you have no access to the forum in question...

    now, i understand some people would prefer that my anti-Bush sentiment were silenced altogether, as was the case on another forum, but it would be respectful and accountable if that moderator would explain what it was in particular that resulted in such a decision... especially considering i never addressed anyone... is a private message too much to ask when you abruptly censor a poster from a forum with no warning?

    i'm going to simply assume that merely posting a video showing Sarah Palin taking a literal interpretation of the Bible was offensive to someone...

    Your ban from POFO at FH was permanent and, for the sake of keeping POFO at least somewhat civilized, that ban was enacted here.

    The Mods here -- the same ones that were at FH during your tenure in POFO, were quite happy when the complaints from POFO were cut in half after the ban.

    Great... in the meantime, before I'm banned for merely asking about it, can you PM me the post whereby I somehow was "uncivil" here?

    Speaking of the POFO, I know some people objected to the Ann Coulter ad, I think this one is just as bad. Can we get rid of crap like this?

    Bro, the ads are served by Google Adsense. We don't control specific content of the ads.

    First off, you don't try to call out a fellow admin in the middle of the site. A pm would have been a classy move, and the results would have probably been a lot better.

    Gee, but to me the best way to not to get banned from Po Fo would have been a PM to Celtkin asking for a chance to prove yourself on this site. I think if you would have followed this route you would have had less Press Coverage and a chance to stay.

    Since Press decided to send out PMs before he left in an attempt to spread his version of the story, let me clear some points up.

    I have never banned anyone from POFO for their politics. The fact that we have respectful posters on both sides of the debate should be a testament to that fact. What does get people banned is personal attacks anywhere in the forums but the temptation to be rude seems especially enticing in POFO - trust me, I have made that mistake too.

    In Press' case, he was repeatedly banned for personal attacks. When I came on staff, I un-banned him and asked him to try to contribute with is intellect rather than clubbing people with insults. Granted, he didn't do it all the time but it was often enough that he was a constant distraction in POFO for the staff.

    After a few more incidents, I banned him only to let him return after he sent me a PM asking to be reinstated. For a week or so, he did well but he finally showed us that he did not have the temperament be a forum member of POFO. It was then that I made POFO unavailable to him though he had access to the rest of the site.

    Unfortunately Press went straight for the throat and attacked me. CNC66 saw it and reported the post then soft deleted (the post is still here but only staff can see it) until I could reply.

    Needless to say, I read the reply and after wading through a series of bad recollections and insults, I left it up to the staff to decide his fate.

    Never heard of anyone who actually requested to be banned from a sub-forum before. Even if it is the POFO. :lol:

    As for adsense, I remember seeing ads for electric griddles, astronauts, and law enforcement, I wonder where those came from...

    Even if it isn't, it must be a really low number which is impressive as heck. The mods and admins have done a great job of being patient with people and working with them instead of just banning them.

    I'm guessing Club Level? If you go to User CP and then "Miscellanous", it will say "Paid Subscriptions." It should say there the end date of your club level.
