Sadly, not all people are cut out for Forumosa, and sometimes we have to make the unpleasant decision to remove someone from the boards. I cut and pasted this from [url=http://tw.forumosa.com/t/the-way-it-works-here/15206/39 post I made earlier this year[/url]:
[quote=“Maoman”]We have a (very effective, IMO) process in place. To quote from our very own rules page:
Bannings will not be discussed nor cases retried in the court of public opinion. We simply do not have time. Even if we did, I don’t think we’d have the inclination. You should be aware that the offending posts that get a person banned are stored in a moderator-viewable Flame Forum, (next to the moderator-viewable porn gallery.)[/quote]
In this thread, starting from August 2005, I will list all members who have been banned.
I imagine some people will want to post about banned members, but remember that we may or may not respond. I have to emphasize this: We will not re-try cases in the court of anonymous cyber opinion. We have a group of dedicated, accessible moderators, and they do an outstanding job in keeping Forumosa friendly, spirited, useful, free, and fun. While I trust none of them individually , collectively they’re a pretty good bunch, and their opinions are highly valued by me.
