So many people "left" this forum and swore they wouldn't come back because of the "No breeder/breeding bashing rule." It was really sad since they made this forum interesting. Glad to have you back but you did confuse me since some people said "it is ashame i like this place, and for me to not be able to discuss topics because of bottom dollar......there are places where i can talk about what i want to talk about. and no need for messy good-byes all my friends post there. so c-ya there." Oh and pope didn't you say "this forum infested with trolls and a bunch of people who could care less about other people ." Why did you come back? Oh nevermind, I am glad you came back. I don't think you are a hypocrite at all. I think you just missed us. Welcome back. This forum should be interesting again.
I am not being rude. I truly meant what I said. Glad these people came back. If you look at the first page it's filled with exciting and fun topics. It hasn't been the same without them. It was pretty boring, no fighting and all that for a few weeks. Now it's Jerry Springer again and I love Jerry.
Jerry......Hmmm that explains your issues. I cant wait to see popes post on this. Man if I were banned a few times I wouldnt be coming back on here to cause trouble.....have a nice night Loving,crazy, or scary im not sure which one to call you. you can go ahead and welcome some of those trolls back...since your one yourself.
Im also sure she didnt miss you.

I actually didn't even look at this topic until now when I noticed how many people had replied to it. Naturally it sparked my curiousity as to what the fuss was about.
I didn't even think this thread was intended for me, seeing as how I haven't gone anywhere. I have been quietly reading threads in the background here and there and haven't really felt like posting too much. Don't worry though, there was/always has been plenty of arguements on the board. Many of which I couldn't help but notice the person in the center just screaming out for attention ;)
But I have posted quite a few times since that particular "incident", sorry you haden't taken notice......
I found a place that I am more comfortable participating in on a more regular basis with lots of different topics, (not strictly pet related) that noone argues on. That, and I have been busy.
In refrence to why a previously banned member is allowed to return, mods can only ban by user name, not IP. We DO however keep track of those IPs. When someone who has been banned returns, we are aware of it and let the poster KNOW we are (as I did in Scary's case).
If they come back and contribute, having "learned the error of their ways", no problem. If they persist in creating problems, we just start banning each and every new user name they create and log on with.
