    Let's look at this another way: A few guys get into a fight in their "regular" bar that they've gone to for years. This happens a few times, and finally the owner of said bar tells the guys not to come back. Who should they talk to if they want to go back to that bar? Not each other or the other patrons.

    If the owner says your are out you are out. The only person they can go back to is the owner and beg. They ruined it for themselves! IMO

    Unfortunately it's not that easy. While you may know who to ignore, new people who genuinely are seeking sound advice don't. And dogs are harmed because of it.

    I absolutely agree. That's when it's helpful for several knowledgeable folks to jump in and set things straight...kindly.

    Well, we have lost some great resources on this board because they were Not treated kindly. And I know you are well aware of this. And recently as well. not just from the banned. So, they won 't come back here and post. And the perpetrator, they say, "we'll, I was only kidding"

    I call B.S. on that behavior. The truly knowledgable are dwindling.

    I have to say I am surprised at some of you who wanting the hating to continue.

    We have lost some very knowledgeable and thought-provoking people, and I miss them too. And it would be sad to lose more. So, how about we all try this? If you look below anyone's avatar, at the bottom edge there's a little black triangle with an exclamation point in the center. When someone gets out of line, just hit that button on the offending post, and it gets reported to the moderators to be dealt with. Personally, I'd delete the offensive or over-the-top stuff in a heartbeat, but since I'm not nor do I want to be in that moderator position, it's not my call.

    By the time the triangle is hit, the person has decided not to come back. And I have hit the triangle and have heard nothing. Nothing was done on the offensive behavior either. Again reality is not always as easy as it seems.

    Sharon, I appreciate your intentions, but forgive me if i say that sounds like a recipe for mayhem! I can see it now, every time person X makes a post, person Y and all his cronies report that post as offensive. You think they wouldn't? Oops, now you have probably given some of them the idea! I would not want to be one of the mods if they have to chase down every so called offender. Let's just keep using our ignore option to avoid those that we know are going to pi** us off!

    just for the sake of discussion for those that want amnesty, what do you suggest happen to the banned members that went on to harrass the janitor at home or continued to berate him on other forums and social networks
