RRBum has been banned

Moderators MUST make sure it is not only their feeling to ban somebody.
Moderators MUST make sure ALL participants are aware of serious breach of ethics
If we can have a 'sticky" posts about other silly things, we can have "warning" 'sticky' thread (I am not proposing it, I rather see no banning whatsoever).

And although I really join the daily bullshit, I whole heartedly support the Bums approach.
So you may as well ban me too.
The only real prisoners, are those who are scared to speak their minds.
I am disgusted, but, well, yes I'm even suprised. for christs sake! FU too!
Embrace your slavery, you brown nosers! shirt lifters,
Smoke my banger!

Well.. do you remember the "Mahdi" being tested with "the box" ?!
That is similar to the psyops experiment on Pravda's forum...
both international crisis [to see how you react and
relate to world crisis] and the ongoing mini-crisis
happening on the forum... like this RRB nonsense
The intel types must get a lot of interesting data
from this forum

Yes to the movie DUNE.
"...is he the one?"
Yes... your quotes are from the original 70s movie.
It is excellent !!
The newer made for TV version is trash.
Tsar Vladimir is the ONE

But spamming sucks. Posting unrelated material in multiple threads is really annoying. Even if you agree with the material.
In general, if you don't like how a board is moderated, you vote with your presence. It is not a democracy or a gov't subsidized typing class. It is a "for-profit" private enterprise. A forum such as this draws "hits" to the Pravda site, which in turn boosts ad revenue.
Moderators are necessary to keep board membership up. Unmoderated boards become nothing more than flame/porno hangouts for 14 year olds which drives away the target demographic.
So while many folk disagree with moderating an on-line forum, they are always welcome to buy their own T-1 connect and start their own.
BTW - I've been banned from a few sites for doing very little. In one case, I was banned for just mentioning the existence of another site. I just brush the dust off my keyboard and hit another site.

Dmitry doesn't just hand over the tools to just anyone. I have shown much latitude.... as has Adrian, Plsek, and Zhurnalist (I am unsure if Zhurnalist even tries to moderate, but that is another question for another day).
I myself finally banned someone (Ctulthu) when he went over the line and directed his anger at everyone including myself.
Adrian spends much more time than anyone else here trying to make sure everyone is treated fairly.
Eurozone, this is the way it is until Dmitry decides otherwise. You appear to want there to be no moderation whatsoever (along with Jezman I might add). If there wasn't a need for moderation, then the old forum would still be up and anarchy would still be the rule of the day.
As with anything, if you don't like the moderation, you can vote with your feet and not come here anymore. There appears to be many who think different, given the sheer number of members and new membership that grows daily.
It is fine to have an opinion that differs from others. But keep it in the context of at least "some" decorum. Everyone when registering agrees to follow a set of rules.
May I remind those people who have forgotten what they agreed to to re-read their agreement before whining about the moderation?
