Sorry if this has already been on another thread, but I see 798 posts have had to be blocked for bad behavior. Tell me, are these people sick, thick  or just stupid. Do they realy think there is the remotest  chance someone might find their purile drivel amusing? Angry

They didn't bring enough Gin or tea to be allowed to play with the brass goggles club! Tongue

I am not a moderator on this board, but the owners of the venue have some very strict policies on what constitutes proper intercourse.  I know of several former posters who could not refrain from bringing politics or religion into any given conversation, and who refused to adjust to the standards of the house.  They have been banned, mostly for being bull-headed and confrontational.

I do not if your 798 posts were from such folks, but I would not be surprised if they constituted a plurality of the blocks.

Those weren't blocked posts- they were blocked accounts. Bad Behavior is a spam blacklist. That link is also at the bottom of the page, with the current running total. We're up to 800.

It saves Harold from having to jump on them, I suppose.

To be quite honest, this community is probably one of the best-behaved ones on the internet. The vast majority of post that are reported are either spammers or to let us know that a thread's been double-posted or is in the wrong board, and that's quick and easy to fix.

It's rather uncommon that someone actually gets upset enough to actually complain about another member, which reflects well on the forum as a whole.  Smiley

Quite right.  If I am delayed, please feel free to start without me.

Yes I am for ever indebted to this forums "good humour" (normally I don't last 3 weeks). BG and the retro gaming clan are the only people that will have me. Cheesy

I have to say i have been suprised on many an ocassion, when my opinion has not been thrown back in my face, like many other forums.

everyone is entitled to an opinion, and here it doesnt turn into a shouting match, which i do find a very welcome change.

i do hope the friendliness and politeness continues for the forseeable future.

i have enjoyed my time here very much, i dont get a huge amount of time to do steampunk projects, or even attend events, i really should, but the thought of turning up on my own seems a little daunting.
please accept my many thanks at making me feel extremely welcome here, the posts are great, informative and fun.

Thank You

At least here, spammers  are the exception rather than the rule. Thankfully this board is mostly inhabited by adults with a fondness for an era where manners and civility were admirable traits.

 For comparison, pay a visit to the official Minecraft forum sometime. More flames and trolls than the last Lord of the Rings movie.

That is an awful lot of flames and trolls. And now we have reached 943! Wow, really people, it is not that hard to be polite. In fact, I would argue that it is probably easier to be polite. Fewer nasty repercussions.

Agreed. I am quite pleased with the friendliness, cordiality and responsiveness of the members of this board. I have not seen an instance of snobbery or arrogance to newcomers, such as myself or any hurtful or otherwise gratuitous snarkiness that is so popular on other boards I am a part of.
