Just sent him an email explaining things to Rusty.

Rusty hasn't been banned and is a valued member of this site. However it has become apparent that every post and every question has been answered by a certain individual.

So Rusty has been put on "Ration" status and this means he is allowed to post 3 posts in each section per day. Hopefully by doing this we can enthasise that this site is about quality of posts and not quantity.

The status is temporary and can be increased or removed as time goes by.

I'm sure a few of you will quietly agree with what has been done and Rusty should take it with a pinch of salt, as it's a light hearted way of pointing something out.

All the best
GW

I wouldn't say it's SPAM. SPAM is completely different. I guess he just likes participating, and in my eyes, I don't think he's done anything wrong.

I do however like the "ration" status *text deleted*.

Yes certainly he hasn't done anything wrong. Although he has some kind of rocket fuel flowing through his blood that just needs to be turned down a touch.

Plus he hasn't done something I didn't do when I was 16. It just takes a little time and experience to work out that sometimes if you give a view on everything, some people start to think you are a "know it all".

It is temporary and will be removed in time.

Matt was banned because he posted some disrespectful remarks about one of the mods or admins.

It wasn't a disagreement, it went much further than that so I banned Matt indefinitely from the site.

With regards crackhour I have my suspicions that he never had any intentions of joining.

Seemed the guy (who was 32) when he first posted, never seemed in any hurry to get on a prmc or start training. Although those are my personal thoughts.

Some people are registered users but have a different title under their names. For example it may say "RM Corporal" but are still registered users.

You're invited to become a Mod.

If you are going to be a help to the site, ie Technical, making images and logos etc.

Also, chances are if you're a serving Commando, with enough time to come into the site enough etc etc, you might be made one.

I was like this once, it's just as time goes on you feel less interested or have less time to post about everything.

In Rusty's case it was only done in a light hearted fashion, part of joining will mean you need to have a sense of humour, which most of you will have and Rusty should see that we were only joking.

The other 2 went way overboard with what they posted. Just to carry on from that don't think that you are going to be banned from the site for disagreeing with anyone, admins and mods included. The incidents in the 2 banning instances went much further than disagreements.
