It's about time the moderators get a hold on this place. I was getting
Sick if Yankee and carter acting like god damn clown trolls and posting unrelenting hate. Finally some justice to be dealt back to the problem members of this community.
Just look you even drove poor Wayne off the deep end and into a forum regression.. No on deserves to be exiled like that.. Well actually maybe Wayne does..
Yankee, carter, although you are my bullies and my mom says not to talk to bullies, you two are pretty solid trolls.

At the end of the day the almighty $ rules all.
Good point Rcarter, but with all the hazing I would assume the knowledge base of SI is less valuable so of cource the moderators wanna keep it valuable to make those advertisers happy
Oh yeah, sorry I didn't address that. I would imagine the need for civil discourse outweighs the $$. I know I have ways within my own business to make more money and I often take the easier less troublesome path and accept less revenue for the piece of mind. For me money doesn't always rule my decisions, and maybe it doesn't for the forum.

What I'm saying is the following folks have left or been banned since Saturday morning:
Wayne (not that I'm crying over that one but still a loss)
I am probably missing some but you get the picture, these were not haters like Yankee and me, they were not posting porn or hardcore vulgarity, they were just having some fun and now we have lost them and their posts.

retracR just you so you know... online advertisers are not stupid. yes they go to appropriate sites but they don't just blindly throw their clients money around. they do read forums and if its a junk site (like all those banned were turning this place into) they will skip it.
This cleaning of house was the absolute best thing to happen to this place.
I would much rather read so called boring threads punctuated by an occasional off topic post than one based on nonsense where an occasional real thread sneaks in. It was getting like diarrhea of the mouth, watered down nonsense without much substance. That said I wasn't complaining, I just wasn't coming on anymore. I figured its fine if that's what it's becoming just not for me. Also it's not difficult to become a top member if all the other potential posters refrain from posting. Ten people being banned will open the board to 50 people being willing to participate without more than a passing fear of being bashed. A little bashing = tough love a lot is just abuse.

Like a few others said if this is what it takes to keep SI running then I am for that so I can check the forecast but seeing 1000 new threads on fin choice, wetsuit colors, and all the other topics we have in the archives is just boring.
