Slowburn, rather than making the assumption that we're reading what you have to say in congruence to a specific mindset, perhaps you should endeavor to think critically about what we're saying to you. I actually want to know what you're suggesting we improve upon; we all do, or this forum wouldn't even exist. There is not one other message board that I frequent, (and I frequent quite a few, probably too many for my personal health) that contains a forum where any and all users can comment on the administration of the forum. So, yes, we obviously want to hear what you have to say. That said...what are you saying? That we don't like you? You guys are not "our people." We're not monarchs. We're here for the exact same reason you are, except we're responsible for making sure the forums run as smoothly as possible. If that means stepping on a few toes, so be it. If that means hurting a few feelings, so be it. What do you want us to do? Stop banning people? Let the users vote on who is banned and who isn't? What, exactly, do you suggest? Because, so far, you haven't suggested anything.
