Okay...Martin...much easier to spell...
Why so chessy? I, myself, am feelin anxious...I wanna know if there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth here too?
I guess I hafta find the real hot threads here and make some posts!!!
I don't know. I've just had a growing euphoria for a few months now.
I think that the tendency is to only throw out absolute jerks1
. Other than that, the only reason you wouldn't be back is if you got busy, tired, or bored with the present company at the board.
As with any other board that gets a fair amount of traffic, if you ever got bored, just disappear for nearly a month and it'll be 33.3% newbies when you get back in 3 or 4 weeks or so.
If they haven't thrown me out, I don't think you're going to have anything to worry about.
The boards recently went through the battle of Armageddon with technical problems, so you're liable to meet a couple hundred new/old2
folks in another two or three months with people that left when this ship was sinking that don't yet know that everything's back up on better servers than previously.
Though I'd previously said that only absolute jerks get banned, I do remember [and need to correct myself about that] that there was one time when things just got a little heated and some folks were only on a 30 day suspension from the boards here. But as I was intending to say earlier, getting booted altogether from these boards is very rare and hopefully won't happen ever again.2
Wasn't talking about anybody's age. Just wanted to be brief about the board being around for a while and now we're waiting on many prodigal sons/daughters to come home since we were left behind
