    It's easy. Don't be a dick. If you wouldn't say something to someone's face, you shouldn't saying in online.

    People want to act like they are hanging out with their bro's on TGP, where you might censor yourself less than you would at, say a family gathering or a work function. Reality is you most members are strangers to you and new people join every day. You should behave the way you would in any social group that isn't hanging in a bar with a couple of close friends. Which the forum rules reflect pretty accurately. Think of it as basic social etiquette rather than having to stifle your true feelings. Most people censor themselves constantly in public. TGP shouldn't be an exception.

    Alls I know is that the topic of staggered vs. non-staggered pole pieces on strat pickups is an argument that should be carried out to the death, and I will stand fist held high upon a mountain of corpses before I relinquish my God-given right to be right on the internet. :cool:

    Voice of paranoia here, but I think a dude drinking latte’s while writing Haiku poetry on a Starbucks napkin ratted me out. It cost me a couple weeks.

    I've got what I consider a great joke for the Kennedy thread. But the tension is so high, I probably would get a vacation for it. SO yes, it does limit things.

    I got suspended for something I felt was important and needed to be said. I knew I would get suspended and I did my time. You're right that it's hard to come back at first, but time heals all wounds.

    If the new t-shirts say " I got banned by TGP", I might purchase one!

    When you are abseiling down a cliff and the rope gets stuck in the figure of 8.

    Then you know you are suspended.

    I've had my share of "points" and a couple of vacations, but overall I have to hand it to the mods here. It's a thankless job.

    Maybe they shouldn't have named it "The Pub". Maybe they would have had better luck with "Your prudish distant relatives house".

    Never been suspended. I've been banned from a couple bars, one store, one website, and a few reddit subs. I never go back.
