Donít join a Yank forum

This poor sod got banned for racism, his crime, abbreviating the word Japanese.

Well it started of as a warning, but because he discussed it on a Brit forum, they spat the dummy and banned him, you gota love the sceptic’s

It all went downhill after post 14, bit of a giggle really.

You said "Yank" Please Miss, Grasshopper said "Yank"!


Frankly, I don't blame the Yanks, I mean USAish.

It's a common affliction of Moderators, Nightclub Doormen and Austrian Painters everywhere - the power goes to their heads...

Nos - I think he's looking at "no of posts" in the persons profile, rather than the "post number".

Jaysus bhoy, you had me worried - for a minute there I thought I'd "yank"ed one chain too many

They know I'm just messin'

FWIW, I have noticed that non-increasing post totals are not a good sign on RIBnet...

Yotatech seem to have many rules. I'm obviously letting the side down and being far too lenient.

Once I manage to work out how their very serious and complicated infractions system works I might introduce it here. It would be like bringing back the red blobs, except I'll be the only person who can dish them out.

In the meantime I am introducing Yotatech's rule # 8: No mocking the staff or else you'll be banned. OK?

PS I've banned wilk for just thinking about mocking the staff.

Will the red blobs be dished out roughly once a month?
