In the 7 years this site has been online, I think only 2 people have ever been banned. One of them was re-instated within a couple weeks.
Over the past couple days we’ve seen a great demonstration on what it takes to get banned by Robert_2009.
Let me start by saying I have absolutely NO problem with debate. I don’t even mind some arguing. I think it’s great for discussion and learning. Compared to many sites on the web, ET is a no BS zone of training and conditioning. This brings with it some heated commentary and often harsh critiques. This is fine and necessary.
What will not be tolerated is insulting members of the forum (especially established and respected ones), disrespecting the owner of the site (me), taking threads off-topic, and making bigoted remarks. I’m going to put all of Robert_2009’s posts in this thread just in case anyone else would like to know how you can get banned within your first week on ET. Enjoy.
