    Banning

    What is the current situation regarding PInkline Jones, John Laws, Ray Hadley etc.?

    They offer absoloutly nothing to the forums and destroy every thread with their stupid impersonations of talk back radio hosts. And anything Richard says they argue with no matter what.

    I am finding it very annoying having to constantly read their dribble

    Been there, done that several times I believe. Masking an IP address is not that hard though.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    I whole heartedly endorse what Blaze is suggesting. They have a huge negative impact and not the slightest of a positive one. Surely this should form one of the criteria for considering putting a restriction.

    Why should anybody be allowed to go around the site like local bullies who everyone is/or appears to be scared of ?

    They've been banned and by James' comments I hope that's the end of it.

    Just noticed Richard currently has the "Banned" legend under his name. Did I miss something? Is this permanent?

    Seven-day ban regarding the accusations of racism levelled against Matt (Barney Rubble).

    He was given a choice of apologising or being banned, and there was no response to the email, so the ban was enforced.

    I reckon it'd be for the best just to draw a line under the whole thing, and turn over a new leaf - to mix metaphors -.
    Or something.

    This thread - but I'd rather not kick up any more dirt over the new line of leaves.

    Wise words. Only virtual rubber-necking on my part, really! I just can't imagine anyone accusing Master Rubble of racism! Seems of the nicest blokes on here.

    Here's a completely random question I'm just wondering about... but when you're banned and you try and log onto CW, what error message comes up?
