The problem is people think this forum, or others forums like this are a public place, they arenít, this is a private place owned by someone, and that someone sets the rules, just like you do in your own home, or other property you own.<quoted text>The Fine Print

The rules are actually quite loose, many people here would have been tossed out from my home long ago, and never allowed to enter again, ever.
Topix Forum is much more forgiving than any of the posters here are.
