Ok I've reviewed the posts of the banned members. I don't see any racist hate speech or personal attacks from them, except for Cornfed. So I've UNBANNED the following members:
Cornfed will receive a warning about his racial attacks. Cornfed, please learn to curb your racial posts. And do not insult other members. Thanks.
I don't understand what MyFirstLove462 did wrong. He seems like a nice sweet guy. You can see his photo in his intro post here: viewtopic.php?t=21091
To ThePrimeBait and MrDarcy: I don't see much hate speech or racism in your posts. But you do need to work on your spelling and grammar. Please use proper punctuation and spelling. Otherwise, your posts look ghetto. So don't be lazy. Make sure your spelling is accurate. Before submitting your posts, fix the errors highlighted in red in the post form. Hope you improve the quality of your posts. Thanks.
I've also looked over AdmiralofBlacks posts. I don't see that he violated any forum rules. He just denigrated his own black race. Denigrating your own race is not against forum rules I guess. Do any of you want him back?
Zboy, are any of these guys' IP's banned too? If so, can you unban them? I could not find them in the banned IP list, but it was hard to look through it since it was not in any kind of order.
Zboy, next time, please give them a warning first before banning them, and explain the reasons for the warning or ban. After the first warning, use a temporary ban.
I will now proceed to PM the banned members to let them know they've been unbanned.
I will also PM the following members: Fschmidt, Drealm and Ghost, to let them know that they can end their protest of the forum and return, since the banning they protested against has been undone.
If any of you are in contact with them, please update them as well. And if you know any other forum members who left in protest, please PM them with this update as well.
Anyhow, I hope that all you guys will learn to get along and support each other from now on, so that we can have a happy, healthy, supportive brotherhood and camaraderie. Please keep in mind the motto: United we stand. So please learn to utilize reason, courtesy, kindness and common sense in your life affairs and behavior here.
I hope you heed these words. Thanks for your attention.
