Maybe MADB is purging.

Post by Yong Xi »

This exchange cost me my posting privileges. I have a new IP, so I don't think they uncovered my sockpuppet. Perhaps, Scratch mentioning my name (Rich Hansen) in a post here did the deed. No biggie. Seems like a pretty mild post IMO. I guess I directed it at the wrong person. That's sanction number three or four for me. Obviously, there is no way for me to participate.

Oh, I also criticized the music of Janice Kapp Perry.

The chief "hit mod" LoaP has been, and will continue to do most of the purging.

We have learned by sad experience that it is the nature and disposition of almost all men, as soon as they get a little authority, as they suppose, they will immediately begin to exercise unrighteous dominion.

You'll be glad to know that my work IP is still banned. Which really made me laugh!

However, my home one works, so I'll check it out when I get home tonight.

I'm not showing you as being Banned, so maybe you are just suspended.

Liz, are there any notations shown for those who are banned?

by the way, this purging is hard on the enamel of the teeth and leaves a doctrinal imbalance in the body.

The member's profile status will be marked "Banned". I am suspended from posting. I can still view, however. I'm not sure
what constitutes an offense worthy of banning vs. suspension. Do you know Liz? Are there set guidelines or is it arbitrary?

Actually, any MAD purge has no effect on the doctrinally balanced. They have no authority, thus no effect.

So you were Richard Hansen!

I was also on that thread. I was neither banned nor suspended.

Yes, but what about the doctrinal balance of the MAD corpus?

Sometimes Nemesis is lazy about getting around to finalising bannings, but in this case you may have jumped the gun, as you're still listed as a member. It should be clear whether you're banned or suspended. When I was suspended (before being banned) I was still able to view the board.

In any case, the All Seeing Eye will now be upon you. I'm afraid to say your days on MAD are numbered.

Not I. But it did tell me that I was suspended, and what day & time I'd be able to access it again.

I've never attended to MADB. No account, no name, no trolling, no nothing.
I tried to read it yesterday.

Weird, Paracelsus. Are you on a school network? I've found that the libraries at both Claremont School of Theology and Wheaton College are banned from MADB. Probably due to crazy evangelical anti-Mormon trolling.
