      Rib wasn't banned for WUM postings really.
      He's been baiting moderators for a few months now.
      Not all of that will be seen by people on the forum, but he wasn't banned for just being negative.

      OK fair enough then, what is the length of ban or is it permanent?

      Never easy being a mod I know from when I ran my own site for greyhounds.

      Can't imagine there was many problems on there though? I've never even met one that can type

      It's permanent.
      I know people think some mods have an agenda but really we're all here because we're LFC fans. (Except Keith)
      When people start to show aggressive behaviour & effectively start baiting mods on the site and in messages then they won't be around for much longer.

      Really!! Interesting, I know you delete many post for obvious reasons but didn't know he been having a pop at the mods. Will he be allowed back at some stage?

      I too have had a few run ins with the lad but will still miss some of his post as they made me laugh. Just hoping we have some transparency with the mods and they let us know how long the ban is for?

      Never easy being a mod I know from when I ran my own site for greyhounds. I'm pretty sure they will have a mod department where us members can't see where they discuss all the ongoing problems. I do agree at times bans are very much needed. However, I've always maintained you don't get life for murder so same should apply to a forum  ;D Obviously just my opinion though.

      That must’ve been “ruff” Keith - did you give the greyhounds a bit of slack for typos?

      For repeat offenders did you give them a permanent ban or a temporary “paws”?

      ;)

      No.
      Sometimes we delete off-topic posting when it gets out of hand.
      Sometimes we delete what we perceive to be consistent negative posting, especially if it's deemed to be WUM posting.

      There is a line though.
      When behaviour becomes aggressive and when posters begin to channel that towards mods, on both the site and in messages,
      then permanent bans quickly follow.

      I'm posting this as an attempt to be transparent for other users.
      Rib was not banned "for being negative".

      Drove me nuts the way he’d de-rail threads.

      Never believed he was red or even a footie fan. Just craved attention.

      Permanent or temporary - he’s been practically begging for it last 6 months.

      I like every warning / ban issued - mods do an amazing job and deserve a bit of appreciation.

      In my case it generally has hee haw to do with the recipient.

      I’ve liked posts where stuff of mine has been deleted and told to get “on topic”.

      Tbh always felt he did it deliberately

      I'm obviously not privy to all that was said, but Riba name came across as abusive, yes he could be contrary and a pain in the arse at times, but so can all of us.
      I'm sure you guys had your reasons for banning him but I would request that the ban is reduced from permanent to a certain time limit. I've seen far to many forums turn to sh*t when mods start banning being permanently and I think everyone deserves a second chance or had Riba been banned previously, serial offender type of thing?

      As you said you don't know so I'd leave it at that.

      I'm sure they have their reasons and I'm.sure they're more than valid. If he's been sending messages to the mods then he's only hot himself to blame

      Fair point, just that the rules should apply to all, for example is someone being abusive to a mod any worse than someone being abusive to any other poster?
      In my opinion abuse is abuse and I've faced plenty of sh*t on here myself, as you all know, but I've always held the opinion that its an open forum and people can say what they want, they just make themselves look stupid by being vulgar or aggressive. Obviously it can go over the top sometimes and then a ban is warranted but if you get rid of everyone with a differing view then this place would become very boring very fast and I really hate the idea of permanent bans as it implies there in no possibility of redemption or forgiveness and I really don't like that.

      But you don't know if privately he hasnt been given multiple chances or warnings

      From my time on here the mods always seem very lenient until they're given no choice

      Transparency is always good for any forum trust me. This seem the only logical thread to post on about Rib as we can't post in the banned thread. However, whilst I do agree derailing threads do happen frequently, as a rule I don't think it's done purposely in most cases. 

      It was comforting having Racer explain in a little more detail though.  Hopefully in time he may be given another chance. I now move on. Thanks mod team.

      Thanks Keith.

      This is going way off topic now and I'm not about to get into arguments with users about why they think he was banned.
      I've already said why he was banned but I'm not going to give full details of what his behaviour was or what messages were sent.
      Anything else about the why and how of Rib will be deleted from this thread.

      I'll leave it at that.
