    I never made any ban-able posts. I always kept my cool and never allowed myself to get involved in emotion rancour that would cause me to say anything I would regret.

    Because they could not ban me following their own rules, they banned me secretly. I found out today when I tried to log in. Is it just me, or is the banning of independent thought the beginning of something more?

    I will also take the opportunity to thank you all for having an open forum with plenty of disagreement. :)

    They banned you because they discovered you were posting here. It's a bannable offense there. Didn't you know?

    Nope, I didn't. How do you know they found out?

    Just by virtue of the fact that you are banned. It happens frequently. CU is the site that can not be named. And the fact that you posted here, under the same name, and then are mysteriously banned confirms it. Also, you spoke disparagingly of the Messianic candidate. It was sure to cause a banning.

    Well, I always post under my own name. I see no reason for sock puppets.

    The place is pretty dull now, anyway, except for the loonies. The really thoughtful people have all left. A lot of them were Clinton supporters but a lot of them just got sick and tired of the gang tactics over there. It was like being jumped in an alley every time you went over there.

    Uppityperson regularly lurks here and looks for trolls. Yesterday I saw a thread where several duers were gloating about your banning, but I can't find it now. Also, you were a Hillary supporter, and I imagine that probably had something to do with it too.

    Yesterday? I didn't even know I was banned yesterday. What did they do, make a public announcement?

    51. this primary brought out some ugly things in people i never would have expected.
    one of them used to post in gd and i liked their threads, they came in here and it was like a different person. One of them that got banned yesterday actually posts at a freeper board and it sure looks like she's a McCain supporter, she is no democrat.
