Title: Reminder about rules - Posting and banned members
Post by: Arro on 03:03:02 PM / 27-Oct-11
This is a reminder that it is against the rules to post on behalf of a banned member. This would include sales listings for cars or parts on behalf of that banned member. This can also include posting pictures of the banned member or their cars, although thus far we have been lenient on this aspect.

We have a rather sophisticated software here that can dectect origination of posters from a variety of sources. It can also ban them, not just by username, but in an assortment of ways that makes certain we can enforce the rules effectively.

Understand -- if someone has been banned from Club-S12, it also means they no longer can enjoy the advantages of listing cars and items for sale here. We're pretty familiar with who's car is whos, so we're gonna know it when we see it.

The best way to protect yourself from losing privileges like posting photos of yourself at events, or selling things here, is to behave civilly. To date we have only banned four people. That's in the history of the site. And to do justice to the rest of the world, they were all Americans. So yes, for those of you in the land down under, I concur and agree with some of you who have shared the sentiment that the drama often starts on the western hemisphere.

But we do what we can to prevent that here, and to correct and, if necessary, remove issues. This is in order to maintain a comfortable environment here for all people around the world.

If anyone has any questions, as always, feel free to ask, but unerstand that this rule was developed among the other rules out of experience.

just a question but what if your at a meet with a banned person something jccs and happen to post pics that they or their car are in how would that affect this rule? like if it wasn't on purpose you were just posting all the pics you took form said event...

It's up to us moderators to delete said photographs from the posting and take one or more of many different courses of action.

Photos of banned members vehicles will not be allowed. That's one of the privileges lost. Discretion must be taken when posting photo's. Even if en masse.

I'm new and haven't been around long enough to experience a member banishment.  I don't know who is banned.  Probably no way of knowing until after..?  TIA.

Edit:  OK, I found them, located in members...

Just wanted to add something to this.

This is a list of those who are legitimately banned from this forum (spambots removed from the list, wasnt worth putting them in the list).

Code: [Select]
asparagus
jeffwins24
Crowbar60     
demonic s12     
New2Drifting
phantommaggot

Real long list, isn't it.  And this site has been around since, I believe, 2002?

It takes a large number of repeat offenses to end up banned. Every one of the people on that list have mile long warning log.

Heck, one of the people on that list has been told he was welcome to come back if he took a moment to speak to Arro.  (Though I don't believe that offer is on the table anymore, but it could be for all I know.)

I updated and added the one other name on there....

Do you blame the owner when a dog bites the face off of a little girl?

Or.

Isn't a car just the extension of the owner?

I'd blame the owner if his dog ran over the little girl.  However if his car bites the face off a little girl I have to blame the car, unless the little girl was teasing it with a new turbo...

Car is extension of the penis.

So if the car comes to a new owner that signs up for the club, it can be a centerfold?

I believe my statement was "Car is extension of the penis."  Nobody mentioned S12...  But while we're at it, your sig, "S12 is to chicks what water is to cats.. an effective repelant."  Do you mean "repellent"?  Just wondering if there is a difference between the way we spell "repellent"?

English to French translation of word "repellent"
 
adj. répulsif, résistant; repoussant; répugnant
 n. produit répulsif; produit anti-moustiques

EDIT:  It's his sig... Those Canadiens. Too many Clodhoppers!

Shark's going back to watching AMERICAN football.  Aroha!

S12 is a small car

Exactly. Its a inverse ratio for car to penis size. Huge lifted trucks have owners with micro-cocks, while small sub-compact drivers usually are comfortable enough to be storing a trouser anaconda.

you could also say lambo owners are small...in which case their penis size is in direct opposite of their bank accounts....well we all know how broke s12 owners are.
