    I just got banned AGAIN for nothing ,that I can't even imagine what I did? The only thing I posted was a question about a new amp I got, and responded to the answers with heartfelt thanks.WTF Ive been here for years and never even got a warning that I can remember.

    I’ve had a couple of time-outs there over the past decade or so, but they were my own fault for responding to people that were looking to start trouble. Lesson learned, now I just ignore the idiots.

    FWIW, the last time was because El Bastardo found his way there after getting kicked out of here. I called him on his BS (perhaps a bit too enthusiastically) and got a week off.

    There are jerks there, many more than here, but that’s mainly due to the size of their membership compared to most forums. I would say that the percentage of dicks to cool people is about the same on every forum, but you see a lot more of them when dealing with high traffic sites with huge memberships.
    There are plenty of really cool folks there, too, just like here.

    Also, moderating a large site is a very different thing than on the smaller ones where most of the regulars know each other. Think Mayberry versus New York.

    I received a week vacation, he was perma-banned. I consider it worth it now, though I now have a record there that will take a while to go away.

    It seems like an appropriate analogy. The moderators there have a lot more going on to stay on top of than most “normal” sites, so often they might come across as heavy-handed, but I don’t think that’s actually the case. I know that when I was a moderator on the Les Paul forum there were many times when so much was going on that it was hard to be able to just hang out and participate in the discussions.

    You wouldn’t believe some of the nasty PMs I used to get. Some people just ain’t right in the head. We’re talking about stuff so serious that if it happened in the real world they would be facing legal trouble.

    I use the IGNORE feature quite liberally on the Troll Gotcha Page. Seeing - ignored content - on threads makes me smile. Yes, I really am quite shallow...

    I use it there as well, but usually only for the worst of the people that seem to revel in stirring crap up every chance they can get. There are a few people here that like to wear the antagonist hat from time to time, but most folks are on to their game and don’t fuel their fires much anymore, which spoils their fun and discourages them from that kind of behavior.

    Odd place, I get the strong feeling the people that post there a lot don't actually own a tube amp, or a soldering iron. If they did, it was a long, long time ago.
    The same four people do most of the posting in the tech section, I don't think they own an amp between them, or the parts to make one.

    They don't frighten us, those Gear Page Pyg-Dogs.
    They should go and boil their bottoms. I blow my nose at their so-called forum those silly Gear Page Kaaaa-niggetts.
    Those empty headed food trough wipers, I fart in their general direction. Their mother was a hamster and their father smelt of elderberries.
