Sad day

Sad to hear that after 10 years of being a ribnet member and over 5000 posts that PeterM has been permanently banned from Ribnet. Apparently for comparing some moderators in connection to a historical figure from WW2 who didnít tolerate any criticisms and couldnít accept that anything he was doing was wrong. The comparison may not be to many people liking but it sounds like it wasnít a personal jibe but a comparison along the lines of a view of how some people can act or not listen to criticism or take any responsibility for their actions.

We will never know the full story as PeterM cant post anymore.

Anyway, Itís a shame we are losing him as he consistently contributed very well to this forum adding good sense and advice and supporting many of the charity supported events and activities.

Yes it is sad, but it wasn't an isolated incident and PeterM has made it very clear that RIBnet isn't the place for him any more.

The discussion has been had more than enough times.

I think that it is a bit sad and childish to post little jibes on RIBnet about how much friendlier the fb site is to this one.

Like it has been mentioned several times before if you don't like it stay away is all I can say....

Thanks Kerny

I was going to say something similar but held back as I feel I can't actually say anything at all because I'll be accused of bullying, latent aggression, being a nazi, or various other unpleasant little jibes. Grow up. The worst thing is, I'm seeing this behaviour from people I know, have associated with and whom I quite frankly thought better of.

There's no 'us and them' and we're not 'the man' to be 'messed with' or anything like that and anyone that feels there is, quite frankly you shouldn't be here. We simply remove inappropriate postings and posters. We're not paid for it and we put a lot of hours in to trying to help this site run smoothly.

Be assured that we don't ban any non spammer lightly and it takes several warnings to get a ban. These aren't declared publicly as we don't want to make a big deal of it. If you're really stupid enough to carry on trying to push the boundaries after those warnings, you'll be banned.

And I think we'll leave it at that.

Just a final reminder for everyone that there are guidelines about what is acceptable on RIBnet. If anyone hasn't read them, then it's probably worth a couple of minutes of your time.

General posting guidelines

If anyone has concerns about a genuine breach of the guidelines then please use the "Report post" feature or drop me a PM.

Hopefully now that the weather is warming up we'll actually get to do some boating instead of fighting each other with our keyboards.

No it's not.

A small minority seem determined not to play by the very few rules that we have here. That means they need to find somewhere else to play.
