    Default Shock Horror! I was banned.

    Last week I was banned for making derogatory comments. Personally I did not think it was that bad, but then Jen thought differently and banned me for a week.

    But PC World Chat is not the only game in town. My world does not revolve around PC World Chat. I have many other interests to occupy my spare time. At the moment I have an ongoing project that is consuming most of my time so being banned for a week - or even longer - does not make much difference to me. Everything continues on as usual - I can read all the posts but I cannot comment. How terrible. I think Iíll probably survive.

    But then I listen to the radio all day on the Magic music station and that would be a real punishment if you took away my radio. I LOVE my music. Canít do without it - but PC World Chat? Iím not worried about being banned.

    But now I have criticised the administrator, Iíll most probably be banned again!

    Really? A new thread and 100-odd words to tell us how much you don't care.

    I'm guessing it ripped your world apart.

    Good Choice - Listen to that all the time.

    When I got my car back from the panel beaters last week they had changed the station - And of course I forgot the frequency till I got home and changed it back

    New life goal. hunt down Roscoes address and apply a radio jamming device.

    Kidding, yeah, everyone has a different opinion, and it's hard not to disrespect people sometimes.

    Jen is a very reasonable moderator, as are most of the ones we have here. A lot of stuff that flies on PF1 wouldn't in a lot of other forums and that's down to our mods being reasonable as they have been since the forum started. I doubt you'll be banned again for criticizing her, as long as you take on board what she said and don't do it again.

    Roscoe, I have agreed with many of you prior posts but agree with baabits that Jen is a very reasonable moderator.. As you say " PCWorld Chat is not the only game in town and does not make much difference to me " so I am sure you will diligently search for alternatives and join them ,instead.
    I think allblack's comments are apt. To borrow from Hamlet "Methinks thou dost protest too much"
