    To the few and shameless:

    You got banned for a reason. The reason didn't go away. People are probably glad you're gone. Why the hell do you keep coming back? You're unwelcome.

    Why persist in proving to the forum that you're a loser?

    maybe it is because it is one of the easiest to join. Also it it is the most "liberal" forums I have found. At the same point it is one of the few forums that I have seen that allows for "reasoned" debate on a varied amount of topics.

    As long as there are bulletin boards, there will be trolls.

    I think that Howard Stern's bulletin board is the most liberal board I participate in. Basically anything goes...

    ...but, but...they talk to me nicely ;)

    i have been appointed the lord confessor here for banned members, i guess...he he...since i am the oldest active member (besides kainjow who was here in mr's first month) and they write me for some reason since, deep down, i am a rebel to any authority and i guess it shows, even with my best effort to follow rules

    ...plus people know i keep changed members who have been banned confidential...i used to work medical records so i know all about confidentially ;)

    compared to the earliest days here (first year and a half), the people who got banned then were way, way worse than the ones who get banned these days

    so the banned ones coming back who have been recently banned are not like the oldtimer trolls who were a terror...some of who are back here but in much more polite form ;)

    people can disguise their ip and location, and in my phd studies on the subject of networking/computer engineering, i tell you even a kid can learn how to do that, and hack/crack, but there is something out there called ethics but many young people don't believe in that...oh well

    i wish computer ethics were taught in k-12 as soon as kids were taught how to use a computer...in order to be cool, kids share with each other different cons and scams that can be done with a computer...i guess it's like when i was a kid and we all played with fire....we had fun but didn't fully understand the implications...of course when i was a kid, fireworks, and much bigger ones, were legal and every city had almost no limitations on their use
