    OK, there is some truth to that statment, but I and the other moderators would like to be called on it when it happens.

    I have made the call, in rare circumstances, to allow a poster to have a little more leeway than normal when, for example, that poster holds a minority viewpoint and generally stays within the TOS but occasionally goes a little overboard. We value diversity, and because so many of the posters with minority viewpoints are wingnuts, trolls,and the like, we do try to focus a little bit on the value of the diversity and balance.

    On the other hand, we also have a handful of posters who are extremely valuable in the info they provide, and have posted quite a bit, but sometimes tend to go off on people. Those folks tend to also get a warning, and a little more leeway. But even in those cases, if someone is consistently way over the line after repeated warnings, they will lose privileges as well.

    If anyone ever feels that we're being unreasonable or grossly uneven, please email and let us know.

    I plan to "to go off on people" as soon as I can find some worthy victims.

    Chip, I think you have summed up what many of us have thought for a long time.

    There are 2 sets of posters on this site;

    1.the 'small' group of 'valued' posters who are 'extremely valuable' to the forum.

    2.And the 'rest' who are generally regarded as 'wingnuts, trolls and the like'.

    The first group get some leeway (an understantement) in the cut and trust, and the irrelevances of discussions.

    The second group, having little to contribute, so it is thought, are cut little slack.

    Sounds like echoes of Plato's Republic! Or to bring the philosophy more up to date, it sounds like the reasoning I hear from the leaders of African countries where I travel, who conduct the affairs of some of the third rate tin-pot African dictatorships

    Being 'agreeable' and not wishing to make my stay at DegreeInfo a short one, I will make no further comment regarding this matter.

    There are three kinds of people in the world: those who can count and those who can't.

    Sorry, but I can still only see two - both from the post and from experience!

    There are 10 kinds of people in this world. Those that understand binary and those that don't.
