relax man,this is the kind of stuff I dont like to see here.

threatening to ban someone for a PBN reference.is not cool.
everyone has a right to their own opinion
you read all of that and came out with it being a 'threatening post'?

As far as banning someone - I have only ever infracted people who broke MCB rules, and will continue to do so. However if people think that slagging the site and it's moderators ISN'T covered by the rules, then I suppose they ought to read them more carefully. All bans are reported to the moderator staff and discussed and agreed upon/removed. No one is judge/jury/executioner here. Infractions ADD up to a ban - hardly anyone ever is outright banned.

The drive to post this wasn't aggravation on the part of DSA's post, moreover the juxtaposition of posts like it versus the reality of what happens here.

MCB is an awesome place. The members make it so. THings may not always go someone's way, but that cannot take away from the legacy of this place, and all it is and has to offer.

It seems almost every time someone doesn't get their way, or is offended, or feels hard done by they compare Mcarterbrown to Paintball Nation, and suggest that MCB is becoming the other.

First of all, MCB is not, nor will it ever be PBN. PBN is a separate legal entity, and has it's own thing going on somewhere else, with different moderators, and different prevailing attitudes. From what I can gather anyhow, I never really visit.

But I think when people offer the insult they mean to impugn the atmosphere here, to attack the moderators, to insult the members, and in general to just be ****ty.

All of this to say that the next time someone slags MCB off the cuff with little thought or regard for all the amazing things that makes this place the most important on-line stop of my day, well they may be getting a vacation.[/B]
Yeah it looks like that what the post is about mainly.

I think there is a sarcastic emoticon somewhere you missed.

maybe the rollseyes?

Brassballs like you said, everyone is entitled to their opinion, and I didn't mean to get your haunches up, but I did mean to inspire people, and I feel that the bulk of the reactions to the post reflect that.

That being said, I reiterate I will not be willy-nilly infracting people or banning them.

Sorry if it came off that way. If you could see the sheer volume of discussion (behind the iron curtain) that goes into infractions and bans it might surprise you, I know it surprises me sometimes.

Anyhow I will apologise for what you have inferred, or I implied, or outright said that offended.

Since we're getting all sappy: I love you guys.
Like, a general sense of well being, not a huggy-huggy thing. But you get my point.

Even after I get into a bad place in life and keep a couple guys waiting for parts for far too long (for which I sincerely regret and deserve everything they may say about me), drop off the face of the earth for a year, and I'm not even able to get back into the sport currently because I'm still in rough straits, I poke back around and basically get "Hey, welcome back. Hope you're well."
And that's not the smallest percentage of this place. From the rest I've seen the gang here do for other people, I could only wish that other communities were half what this place is.
You guys are great. Keep being awesome.
