IMO RORROS was (is) a bit of a troll. Actually find him quite amusing at times with some genuinely straight up, honest opinions though.

IDB seems completely harmless but I suppose if you go running to another board and start slagging off the moderators of this site you have to accept there might be consequences.

Only my opinion but banning them seems harsh - release TDB 2.

Islay and Rros posted on Mad that they were banned from here.

Extremely poor show that they are banned.

This thread will deleted shortly though and they will remain banned going on previous.

I like this forum obviously as I use it a lot but this is the massive negative side of it with the bannings of Mr Sensible, RORROS and Islay who are all just Dees with an opinion, surely what the forum is meant to be about.

Mr Sensible, Rorros and Islay were good posters. Sometimes they had different views which brought good debate to threads. It is unfortunate that because someone doesn't like their views or the way they post that they all get banned. Very poor IMO as the forum is a much better place with posters like them. I would like them all to come back but even if they were allowed to I doubt they would.

Free speech in Scotland 2015, not on this forum. :(. And no way we're any of them trolls. If people think they were well I would take a good look at some of the posters that still post on here. All IMO of course. :).

Agree with this. Think the mods are far too OTT on here sometimes.

Begining to descend into what the official forum used to be like.

Normally we have a policy never discus moderator or admin actions regarding other members openly in the forums, but I feel I have to correct a few statements that are being put around as the 'truth' by others elsewhere.

In all the time that this website has been open, up until a few days ago there had only been 5 people banned from this website. 2 of them were obvious trolls who were hell bent of causing as much trouble on this site as possible, they're now posting on Dundee Mad calling us for everything. Another 2 of these accounts were by the same person who was a Dab posting here under the guise of a Dee and was found out after the 6-2 defeat when he sent another member here trolling messages of 6-2 6-2. The last member is one that threatened a member of staff, that is big a no no!

From January this year, a total of 8 warnings have been handed out and most of these were to the same person. So mush for us handing out warning left right and centre.

We will delete posts if a member breaks our community guidelines, if you attack another member, post statements that can get this website into serious trouble of copyrighted material, but generally, people were under the impress that we deleted things because other people had their own control of their own posts and deleted them, or we moved posts to another part of the forum without saying anything to the member or because the posts are duplicates.

The only way you will get banned from this website is if you break seriously break our community guidelines, but you will more or less get a friendly private message asking you to remember the guideline's and if you continue then we will had out warnings.  If you come to this website with the intent of trolling for the fun of other people else where then you leave us with no choice, we have to act for the sake of this community and the members within it.

I want to make one thing completely clear, we do NOT ban people for having an opinion or because we don't like what you have to say. The whole point of this forum is so you can have an opinion, say your piece and vent if need be, just do not troll us in the process or attack members of staff or other members.

I will be brutally honest with you, we haven't handled a few things very well and yes there are a lot of things we could have done better, but at the same time we are still learning. But to say we are anything like the old site, you have got be be fucking joking and the day we end up the way Dundee Mad became will personally close down this website.

I have said this a few times and I will state it again, just because your post gets hidden (We don't delete) that doesn't mean the last of it. If you feel that your topic/post has been removed unfairly all you have to do is contact us and state your reason why you feel it should have been removed. We will listen and if we think we were wrong then we will act accordingly. There are a few members who have had their posts reinstated.

Honestly, when I say this, I'm not putting my own money and time and effort into trying to make this place work if I am just going to ban everyone because I don't like what they say, neither are any of the staff here. So I want to make it perfectly clear how you will get yourself banned from here in one go

  1. Threaten a member of staff in any shape or forum.
  2. Come here with the intent of trolling under the guise that I have a right to say whatever I like to who ever I like under the freedom of speech.
  3. Come here to spam the forum, or post bestiality of child porn.

I think the moderators are on a hiding to nothing. They moderate this site closely but then Mad was moderated closely until Shaded jacked his role; it then became a free for all populated by five or six people posting the same nonsense (Friendly / The Book Burner for example).

If the moderators back off too far this board is likely to go the same way. Nowhere near the level of moderation that the official suffered from by he way; at least you can be negative if you feel the need on here without the comment being automatically refused / deleted.
