We are lucky

We are lucky to have a site like this where people are friendly and respect each other. Not only that, folks are very helpful towards rookie fix-it people like myself and this has helped tremendously. It is rare to find a welcoming place where people have such a positive attitude and go out of their way to help each other out. The world can learn a lot from SBF!

I moderate a couple other places, specialty car sites. Very supportive group for the most part. But... and there always is one... there seem to be some folks who just can't let others have a good time. We have a points system similar to what your driver's license probably has. Different flavors of infraction garner you a related points penalty. Some offenses have points that never expire, while most will disappear after a suitable no-more-offenses period. You might get an instant time-out or vacation for certain offenses, and there are a very few that merit an instant and non-appealable ban. Post porn, threaten a member or mod, something like that.

In most places, being a moderator is a relatively thankless job. I appreciate the tone and tempo of the group here. Seems many are old farts who have the time and willingness to share their experiences and knowledge with others with the same interests.

My general guidance for folks in forums like this is to speak/type/post as if your mother was reading everything you share. Think "golden rule" and you'll be golden for the most part.


Thanks to mods and members for keeping this place a pleasant and informative forum for us. :cheers:

I love my snowblower. Every beat of it's little heart is one mine won't have to take.

You are seeing posts they made before they were banned.
After they are banned they can no longer post, but their older posts remain, (the ones that werent deleted) and then the word "banned" appears with their name.

Do we ever get an explanation of why a certain user was banned? I was going through some of my posts to find a particular reply from a specific user, and I came across several banned folks.

I'm sure the reasons were valid and I've definitely seen some folks post the same info over and over and over that I could definitely do without, but it does make me wonder.

I would list the names I'm curious about if a moderator would be willing to disclose the reason(s) behind the ban.

Does the forum get an explanation, no. It's usually something that's initiated by a member complaint or flagged post. In most cases I will send the complainant a PM on what I did or didn't do and why. We Moderators do have a staff area where we talk over problems to get a consensus on what to do. So action is usually discussed before being carried out unless someone is blatantly violating the rules, profanity, attacking someone, ... In a case like that a moderator is likely to just step in and stop the problem immediately.
That area can only be accessed by Moderators and above.

If you click on someone's screen name you can then click on "Find more posts by ( )". If you look at their last post or the last couple posts you should see something they've done or a direction they're headed that's contrary to the type of decorum we try to maintain. If you see their last or last few comments were deleted than they went off the deep end and their views or opinions were beyond what a moderator considered to be appropriate. Some people take a warning or criticism better than others.

I'm constantly worried about being banned. My wife says I have a strange sense of humor. Don't know why she puts up with me for over 35 years.

I asked her about it and she said I make her laugh.
