    That is ever so unlikely.

    What exactly was Matt banned for this time, Skip?

    Isn't it obvious? He doesn't like him!

    What is more likely is that Matt doesnt know when to keep his mouth shut.
    On top of that there was no apology whatsoever by Matt for his behaviour and his unnecessary crude language whilst posting drunk.

    As with many self-styled internet bad-boys, Matt has always had more pride than sense. Put him in a room with John Howard and see which one learns the word "sorry" first.

    On another board that I frequent where I am a moderator I have recently had a situation where one of the posters has twice posted comments along the line of:

    "I'd prefer to pay someone $50 to bash them"

    Since many participants of that board (and probably the staff working for the company involved) would find such physical threats intimidating I've taken the following steps:

    1st offence: Deleted the offending words

    2nd offence: Deleted the offending words, notified the poster both publicly and via PM of my actions and the reason for deletion, requested that he refrain in the future, notified the company to make a note on his CRM file

    If there is a 3rd offence I will ban him (probably for 7 days, possibly permanently, depending on the level of the offence) and will recommend to the company that they consider taking their own action (whatever that might be).

    I believe that if the offence is in private, the response should be in private. If the offence is in the public arena, the response and/or the apology from the offender needs to be also in public. So I think it should be appropriate for there to be a notification posted so that innuendos and misunderstandings are avoided.
    “As you perhaps know, I haven't always been a Christian. I didn't go to religion to make me happy. I always knew a bottle of port would do that. If you want a religion to make you feel really comfortable, I certainly don't recommend Christianity.” -- C.S.Lewis

    On the issue you raise frosty, that post you cited could actually be used in legal proceedings as intent of a crime. I would suggest that the admins of that bb delete the post and keep a record of it just in case.

    Intent is a load of crap.. it cannot be proven. The law should make people responsible for their actions, not their mere intentions.

    you missed the point bruce, it could be used with all the other 'evidence' to prove that the said persons actions were thought through and not just reactionatory or emotional.

    It's to bring a topic back to the top of the forum by posting.. if that's the sole reason and there's nothing more to add specifically with another post the terminology is 'Bump' (bumping the thread back to the top).

    Hey STML Do you think that my thread on "should starter keep his CI in his own thread" is a waste of server resources?

    bumping is also done to get someone's attention to a question previously asked that wasnt answered or has gotten lost in all the postings, especially when it is clear that the respondant to the question/post has been posting on the same thread
