    Maybe some could be allowed back with a curfew. Sometimes it seems like the most venomous posts occur after cocktail hour. .;

    You really gotta be careful about how high a pedestal you put your method, your accomplishments, your dog on. There's usually someone who's done more, somewhere. And they may have used a different method than you did! Chris Atkinson 2013

    So for all saying no, why are you so apposed to giving someone a second chance? Yeah there are some a holes out there, but there are also some that in my opinion offered excellent opinions. I would bet the ones that are really bad apples probably would not come bad anyway and even if they is they would be gone again at the first offense .
    Whats the worst that could happen?

    what is recidivism?

    i voted no even though i think "mean people" usually provide very funny reading.

    maybe bill and road kill can put a "rtf banned training day reunion" together. everyone could train, sit around and tailgate and chris could evaluate the likelyhood of reform or recidivism based on the days events? if they all spend a day together and nobody gets an ass whoopin'......they all get back in!

    I don't think that anyone should be banned for an opinion, even if voiced strongly, but if someone has threatened anyone else, I think they should be gone forever. I can do without the ad hominem attacks and name calling, but then again, I have always been pretty sure that I am winning when people start calling me names. First one to call "stupidhead" (or whatever) loses.

    POTUS is pretty wild west and seems like it is pretty hard to get banned (I think mostly because Chris doesn't visit very often as he REALLY doesn't like the kind of rough and tumble nature of the spirited discussions seen there). I would think that amnesty would have to be on some kind of case by case basis. Have wondered what happened to Murral (I'm not a girl) Stark (on POTUS) for instance. Don't know if we just drove him off or if he got banned. If we drove him off, I feel a bit bad for any part I might have had there.

    I miss WRL's avatar. I think he/she should be brought back based on that alone.

    I voted no simply because I figure the decision should be up to Chris. I am sure he is trying to balance all sides. I miss some band folks too.
