How to get banned, read House rules

Every once in a while someone gets banned. So I read the rules, again, a sticky post under the forum House Rules and Helpful Hints.

You can read it, summarizing, no political, religious, porn posting, or cursing. Be nice, don't bash anyone, if you have a problem with someone first deal with it through private messaging. And No Brand bashing. Oh well! One point mentioned I'm not quite clear on, no solicitations. I like knowing when someone has something for sale or needs something. Maybe they mean outside of the For Sale forum?

I've been on several forums over the years and this forum is the only one with a really unusual friendly atmosphere like we all know each other and are friends. I don't travel but if I did I would want to PM some on here just to meet them for an hour, say Hello, shake their hand, and see their machines, shop, tools, yard, operation.

Thank You.

Of all the discussion sites i belong to this one is the friendliest. one is my former workplace site which is really nasty at times. social media is full of hateful miserable people.

two other sites that are very friendly is Nextdoor.com It's like a neighborhood facebook type site. you have to use your real name and you get to know and deal with your neighbors. another friendly site if you own a subaru and work on your own vehicles is USMB. Ultimate Subaru Message Board. really good group of people.

come to think of it. any specialized site that i have visited like electricians, welders , and diy sites are fairly civil.

on Snow Blower Forum there is only one member that I know of that likes to attack people and I put him on ignore.

i'm on a Goldwing forum and a few years ago I found out that another forum member was planning a trip to the U.P. then comming down through lower Michigan heading to ohio. I got ahold of them rode 40 miles to meet them treated them to lunch, rode to the MI / OH boarder with them (to keep them out of the worst of the construction ) before returning home. I also met up with one of our forum members in SE ohio on my way home from hazard, Ky a few years ago. we had a nice visit and I got treated to a great lunch. if I get to Gettysburg this year micah / joe want to meet up, i'm all for it and todd would be really disappointed if I were near him and didn't check in

The Moderators do their best to only censor in our opinion what really needs censoring and only boot someone if they're just impossible to reason with.
In most cases a member will get a number of warnings unless they really get combative or aggressive and it's pretty clear they're asking for it.
We want it to be friendly and helpful. We understand a little brand love and a little brand bashing but as long as it's respectful to the other member(s), life is good.

The big thing is if you're talking to another member in the same manner as you would if you were face to face, you're likely ok. It's the people who hide behind a keyboard and spew hostility and negativity that no one really wants on their forum.

And it's not just the moderators. If you see something on the forum that you think isn't appropriate, please flag it for one of us to look at.

What does being banned mean? I see a member post although it says "banned" under his name.
