To be fair, you have never, ever been subjected to the over moderating and combined hounding by two posters which Davel was subjected to on that evening.
An annoying post can be easily ignored.
I do it many a time.
But that is not the same as the unfair moderating and goading which Davel was subjected to on that evening!

It's not always possible to prove you're right. The sensible thing to do then is to stop trying. Resorting to abuse isn't the sensible thing to do, especially if those disagreeing with you are moderators.

Davel obviously deliberately resorted to abuse knowing he would be banned.  He’d had enough of the stupidity and wanted a break I expect.

All these judgemental words that get bandied about; stupidity, bullying, bias, etc. All opinions and all designed to sow discord imo.

A self imposed exile?
Wouldn't blame him at all.
He had had over moderating and.goading to deal with and then the jocular posts about Madeleines disappearance which in my opinion were unacceptable.

OK let’s ban all insults and all judgmental words, regardless of to whom they apply, shall we?

So in your opinion he's a reasonable, uncontroversial member who, through no fault of his own, gets goaded and ober moderated?

Exactly.  His views are not controversial, certainly not when compared to numerous sceptics on here, IMO.

My part in the public discussion of a fellow forum member is finished!

I agree. The discussion shouldn't have focussed onto one named member.

I think when you raised your initial question about how many chances people should be given, then it was more than obvious to whom you were referring.
Did you receive any answers to your original question?
Pardon my cynicism in believing that if a sceptic had been the person in question, then I doubt you would have raised such a question!

An incident occured which led to someone being sanctioned. We were all told why; totally unacceptable language had been used to both moderators and other members. As was also pointed out; there should be no need to keep reminding people of the rules.

It seems to me that the sanctions don't work, because if they did people would behave better, Hence ny question, In my opinion repeating the same offence should carry a heavier penalty each time it's repeated.This should apply to ALL menbers.

Possibly best to direct your concerns and suggestions to John!

IMO, this forum needs Davel and others who post “controversially” because without them it would be Dullsville Arizona.
