Not sure what happen but over on ADV on the DR 650 area I have received two bans in 4 years the first one was for posting a link to a free download to the service book for the DR I got 2 weeks off to think about it,and the second for posting a link to a link that had a free download and this one was for two months so I only post a few times a year but read every day. :mad: I was told that I have two strikes and the third will be a life ban.

Did they explain what their reasoning was / is . So , a member could get two bans in four years ( as you stated) and then not get a ban for another 5-10 years ,and your still life -baned at that point ?.

No explanation but I think it is a better system then a life ban like Concho just got.

Evidently what we think is not important, we are just guests here. We don't pay fees or have any say. The forum owners can do what they want, they own the forum.

Most forums have some guidelines. I have not looked around for such on this forum, maybe there are some. To justify the ban on Concho politics would have to be banned. He is a conservative and when he posts facts it sometimes annoys the left wingers. Politics is a major issue in our society these days, seems like discussing it should not be off limits at all.

When I want to discuss politics I go to a forum that is to discuss ploitics. When I want to discuss motorcycles i go to a forum that is to discuss motorcycles. When I want to discuss Tw200's, I come here.
Funny I suppose. I come here because I like the people and the atmosphere. I kind of like talking about a lot of different things and prefer to have a single site to keep track of instead of three like you. That is the beauty of America. We are all free to pursue what makes us happy. The only question is who provides the sites or services we decide to use.

he was not posting in the TW200 forum he was in the off topic.
Off topic= Want to talk about something other than the TW200? This is the place for any and all discussions under the sun.

I rarely go to ADV except to look at pictures. Place seems too snootie to me. I hang out on BadWeb (a Buell Forum) more than anywhere. You can talk or read politics on the General Board there. Just make sure your facts are straight or you will get called on it.

As a Canadian ,I truly don't care about American politics as it doesn't much affect me .From what I saw of concho ,he made many many threads about political stuff ,but contributed almost nothing about the bikes ,probably 90 percent of his posts were political .I didn't bother me as I didn't even look at his cut and paste stuff after the first few times ,but I can see how others might not find that acceptable .I haven't been here long ,but I did notice after the big blow out with the drunk guy testing his cooler ,it seemed that there was a lot more political postings ,not sure if that's truly accurate ,but I certainly noticed it a lot more and felt that it was kind of done as a slap in the face to the cooler tester guy although as stated in that blow out ,if it's put in the off topic don't read it if your panties tend to ride up you ass .

That is pretty much what happened but I had a problem with RPG , I am the drunk guy that was doing the cooler test and today is my 53rd Birthday and I am having some Black box Cabernet Sauvignon to celebrate and going to BBQ a nice porterhouse.

Porterhouse is the king of steaks, I am drooling thinking about it. Mail me the bone? Happy birthday!
zdiver, I never thought of you as a troublemaker and the posting of a link to free downloads sure seems innocent to me. Glad you are with us here.

In the ADV rules it says you can not post links to copy rights material but who reads the rules.

I don't monitor the forum 24-7 like some do, but I did notice when I logged on tonite and clicked on new posts that there was a lack of crap cluttering up the good stuff. Also seemed like more posts from people that haven't posted much recently. Sorry I missed the mess in isle 5 before the cleanup but I sure feel good about the outcome!
