    No reason for it , any of it... There's one or two new members here that will probably get banned before long... It happens boss don't lose sleep over any of it... The world is full of people like that and there's plenty of other sites he can go and fit right in...99.9% of the people on here are wonderful For the other .1 I just use the ignore button , works like a champ....

    I wouldn't have wanted to give him his silver membership back but it is probably the smart thing to do. You have to hate the asses in life, sorry but it is required.

    Boss: It is your site and you can set the rules and enforce them however you desire.
    If I were in your place I would have done the same with that party. No one should or needs to put up with such immature and childish talk, emails or conduct.

    Forum Boss - I'm relatively new on here, but not new to web forums. There are too many good people out there to let the jerks hang around and do jerk stuff. Thank you for taking out the trash. Merry Christmas

    This is a great forum and you do a great job. Not super picky like some other forums.
    I can guarantee people like him don't like his wife, his dentist, his accountant, etc.
    Just learn to not let people like that get under your skin. Use people like that to measure
    your personal growth. Remember life is to short to drink cheap whiskey or argue with fools.

    Boss, do what you gotta do!
    I'd be happy to upgrade from silver to gold for to offset the $$ you sent back.
    But I don't see an option there to do that. Its $50 instead of $25, for the upgrade.
    Let me know!
    edit: I sent the $50 anyhow. The site is worth it.

    No where in your job description does it say you must "suffer fools". You did the right thing and we are all the better for your efforts. Great job and Forum. Happy New Year

    Boss you handled the situation much more grace and diplomacy than I feel most of us would. I tip my hat to you and say “HELL YES “

    Based on that individual’s response, I will say the forum is better without him.

    Not necessary to explain to us, just do it. One thing though, you shouldn't have refunded his money. He doesn't deserve a refund. Something I said before and I'll say it again. People shouldn't be allowed to "run a business" through this forum. It's ok to sell personal items etc, but setting up a business should not be allowed. Just my opinion.

    Life is too short to put up with people who don’t respect others and then verbally insult you with tasteless statements of ill will. I agree with many that your patience far exceeds mine; thank you for all you do to keep this site respectable.

    I wish you and all the members of this forum a Prosperous and Happy New Year

    I own and moderate a bb myself. There are thousands of people you want, drop the ban hammer on the ones you don’t. Make the rules clear and enforce them and nobody gets surprised. On one count he was right, this aint a democracy; this is your house, you Clean it as needed. Not that it matters but I totally agree That one needed to go.
