    Apparently Edward Snowden’s got the banned list off the CIA.
    Guardian’s publishing it on Monday.

    I got banned for mentioning a product that IMO makes this site a better place to hang out. Others here use it too.

    I’ve been told off for the same. didn’t get banned though. Must try harder next time.

    I got a week or so off from here for recommending a great adult video web site on a post asking for web site recommendation.

    I was only trying to help like!

    I got a ban for asking if anyone was attending a Ryan Adams concert. Rather harsh, I thought. ‘N0’ would have been adequate! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Druidh got a ban for the use of the word Nigger in a completely non-racist and contextually correct manner. I still think the Pavlovian response was rather out of place (but funny nonetheless).

    I got banninated for a weekend for posting a risque photo of a lady in a provocative pose.

    Not that anyone else has ever got away with the same… ๐Ÿ™„

    I have arisen so I must have been banned

    I have been a good boy since my return and had not so much as a warning as I realise everything they do is just AWESOME

    To be fair I shudder to think what this place would be like without it and I support moderation in general if not every decision.
    they seem to be,in general, pretty fair on here.

    Still miss TJ and Why oh why TSY?

    I don’t believe you. Fred never loses an argument.

    Actually it seems you already discovered that.

    I got a stern warning for trying to evade the swear filter and a ban for posting the video of the racist woman on the tube (Which had been posted already).

    I think the mods are way too oversensitive and they seem to let some things go by whilst others get hammered . I’ve probably just set of some alarm and expect a blacked out SUV to be outside the house in the next 30 minutes.

    What proportion of bannings were Fred I wonder?

    I think I got a sinbin though I can’t remember for the life of me what it was for. Being a mouthy **** probably. Oh and some warning shots which I can’t take seriously at all, one for calling an idiot an idiot and one for starring out 2 letters of the word shit, which is more offensive than just typing shit. I was a prisoner of conscience!

    Well checking the history list some of you are still telling fibs.

    one for starring out 2 letters of the word shit,

    For example.

    Drac, can you seriously take a look to see what folk were banned for?

    Of course he can – how do you think they track past moderation decisions and try to ensure continuity?

    The only one that interesting me here is the chap who got a call from the editor!

    Loadsa bans, many fair, none ever discussed by mods, despite their standard invitation to do so.

    Bring back the real WinstonSmith (he’s not banned tho).

    Never understood this one either, I thought he was great entertainment whilst not being offensive or repetitive like some of the others that have gone.

    They have a spreadsheet. I’ve seen a bit of it….

    I’ve had a few warnings, but also a while ago I posted of my experience of a certain organisation and a representative of said organisation contacted the mods to demand my comments were removed,
    After contacting me and getting my side of the story and me standing by what I posted, they told em to jog on and let my comments stand..
    So it’s not always about the ban hammer and you can’t say sh**….
    Edit.. LOL!! ^^^

    It’s just a snippet, Al. It could be from page 4. Sorry, but your firmly middle of the pack here.

    What was it for then? Definitely something exactly like that, “swear filter avoidance” for something that wasn’t in the swear filter.

    Not banned yet, but had a stern telling off for avoiding the swear filter, for words that were not in the swear filter but should be, in a thread full of swearing. My post was nowhere near the worst but someone got all delicate and reported it.

    “called drac sugar tits” Love it, does that count as calling drac sugar tits again?
    If not then may I call drac sugar tits again. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I had a few days banning for apparently deliberately avoiding the swear filter by typing **** , despite it being perfectly acceptable on R4 during daytime radio broadcasting and on the BBC web forum along with national broadcasting on father ted and other programs….personally i find the phrase 650b far more upsetting to my delicate nature.

    Dunno. I just Edward Snowden’d the document.
