    I did not vote. There are a couple of posters who I believe are banned that I thought added something to the forum although one of them would go from being insightful and helpful to just mean and ugly for seemingly no reason. There are some others that I believe are banned that I am very happy NOT to see here. Bottom line, I trust Chris A.

    Classic example. Why are some banned and others not when the behavior is the same?

    In our small world, it is looking more and more like a NO GO!

    I am in the minority on this one. We all need forgiveness.

    I agree the recidivism rate is very high for those paroled.

    I've been banned once & on the edge about 3 or 4 other times. I know it is hard to express our true thoughts on a forum such as this without on occasion hurting the feelings of the more sensitive . & it does depend on one's position in the RTF pecking order .


    But I admire the patience of the somewhat more talented trainers (yourself included) & dispensers of sound advice that deal with the sophomoric attitudes sometimes displayed. I think Dr Ed deserves a medal for his willingness to share professional advice & his breadth of experience to the not so learned. There is only one person presently banned that I truly miss. Knowing that person personally, I still am wondering what happened.

    I voted yes. Then I read the thread and changed my mind.
