    Knee Jerk.

    Why has Flasher been banned from The Bounce? I know she's not to everyone's liking but she's not insulted anyone who didn't have a go at her first. Banning people whom are trying to inject a bit of fun into the forum will kill off the charm that I and so many others love about The Bounce. Is her banning a result of the recent "It's not like the old days" dissent coming from the "clique" of old school members? If so that's not right, she hasn't broken any rules.

    and claire who's pc i'm on/use btw and she's not happy, I'm the one who told her to join this and get off .net (because of things like this happening). Getting bounced for saying she was going to spork someone in the hand (and ment it for someone who knows how to take her patter) even though the thread was about stabbing people. Just not right can see the point if she'd ment it to be abusive but everyone knows unless your a hun your safe

    Claires or Flasher have never said or done anything wrong on the bounce that i've ever seen

    Anyways i've probably just got myself bounced for sticking up for the fugitive so

    This could quickly become the thread to visit for a ban in support of the other three?

    Either way; I suppose someone will get what they want

    Quite right banning these females. no place at the match and certainly no place on a decent upstanding male forum like the bounce. well done admin.

    Just a thought but on the whole you could usually see a ban coming a mile away. Flash wasn't everyones cup of Earl Grey but I enjoyed her nonsense and tbh I also enjoyed seeing her rip folk to pieces (I have been on the receiving end btw) So purely on the basis of being a nosey so and so why was she binned???
    More reason if needed, to drink more beer.





    So I said to the wee blonde beer drinking babe, sorry small blonde beer drinking babe.I'm off home soon and there is far too much beer to be drunk. Poor lassie was devastated

    Seemed she was an funny,intelligent woman. no place for her in a football related concept. Need to leave that to the lads.

    I can sort of see why Roger Mellie got bounced.

    (S)he started off abusing people. But in, I think, a jesting sort of way. I can see why that might have been misconstrued.

    But Flasher and Claire only ever responded to the slagging they were getting. And, again, I though they took in the best humour and replied in kind.

    As I said in another thread, I thought the pie stand was a forum where a bit of fun and banter can take place between consenting adults (and the youth. They contribute too).

    As far as I can see there is more personal abuse goes on in GHC than on here but posters there don't get banned for it.

    Most of the regular contributors to here have got to know each other and take it all in good humour. From the outside an occasional visitor could get the wrong idea that it is vitriol, but it is like listening guys you don't know in a pub slag each other. It sounds bad to you but they love it and are best of mates.

    Admins, please reconsider the bannings folk have got from here. The bounce is poorer without them IMO.

    Maybe the bans are needed to get the site back into shape and letting folk know that debate is good and healthy but personal abuse can and will be dealt with in the appropriate manner

    Where was the personal abuse on here from Flasher and Claire?

    I see it lots of it on GHC which seems serious but the abuse on here is given and taken in good humour.

    As far as I can see they were on the end of it more than anybody else.

    They responded to some stick that a lot of people would have been offended by in good humour.

    Have you got a grudge against Flasher because she didn't respond to your PM as you would have liked?

    I always thought the pie stand was in excellent shape.

    Hazard

    F F S !

    I've seen a lot of $#@!e spewed on the bounce in my time , been responible for half of it to be fair , but bounced for being funny? seriously? that canny be right thinks me , so i read the "petty crimes punishable by death" thread........ its sadly true , people on here have been going on for ages about the downward spiral of the bounce due to "younger" posters , you want the truth? its went down hill because the likes of claire , flasher(........ probably me now ) cannot have a bit of banter on here without being bounced , what chance does the younger generation have of helping improve the bounce and become fantastic contributors themselves when they get bounced for they're efforts?! DISGRACE!!

    can i ask what happened to the bounce jail where the said bounced could make a case for them being bounced. i personally think its unfair the bounced involed don't know why they were bounced or for that fact are able to appologise for there crime if there was one.

    the bounce have lost 2 females from the forums that we know of which is sad as not many female posters on here regular & ones that can take a joke. i know the admins have a sh1t time but the least they can do if they bounce someone is e-mail them & say why & giving theman e-mail addy to reply or as i say re-instate the jail

    I always thought that Claire was very good at posting on the pie stand,she put quite a lot of jokes on the jtoa thread,I don't know what thread she got bounced out for though,Admins when a person gets bounced where can we find out why they banned? as I say Ithought Claire was good for the bounce,and by the way I don't know her.

    One of the reasons stated by admin on another thread,was about people posting links to porn,can remember at least one of the recently banned doing this.

    Dunno if this was the reson for the ban or not.

    That wasn't Flasher or Claire. They've been made an example of which is $#@!e.

    Think the admins need to clarify this situation tbh, why were they banned?
    They haven't even had the decency to tell those who were banned why they were banned. There's no danger they'll tell us.

    And not an admin in site to justify whats happened!!!

    A lot of pissed off people on the bounce and i can see some heading south for warmer climate very soon, IMHO its only an internet forum and no point stressing about it, but some poeple enjoy posting on here and to have their rights taken away without even telling them why is OOO.

    Dont suppose us lowley bouncers will be privilaged enough to receive an explaination for this but you never know lol

    There does seem to have been a fair few people bounced recently, it has a bit of an "admins on the warpath" feel to it which is never a good thing.

    While a couple of the ones I've seen seem to be valid there have been more that I've raised an eyebrow at, especially when it seems like a number of people are being just as venomous to each other but only those on oneside of the argument have been booted out.

    Now ofcourse it's possible that the person said something unacceptable in a pm or in a post I didn't see but I have my doubts.

    Not sure the collective admins need to justify their punting of people?They have to put up with the huge amount of $#@!e on each forum, making sure the bounce is not breaking any laws.I'll take a guess they discussed this on their Bilderberg-type forum and made the choice.
    I've never really been that interested in any of the people emptied, not my cup of cha tbh, but equally they have never annoyed me as much as other have either.Hey ho, move on.

    i am sure that the admins will get round to posting on this thread asap you got to remember they do have day jobs & theres lots of threads needing seen to so give them time. but i do think the people involved in the bouncing out need to be told exactly why they were bounced & if it concerns a rule breaking then we deserve to know what it is if only for us not to break the same rule

    but give the admins some time

    If folk have been bounced out for good what does it matter if the admins tell them, theyll not be back anyway.

    Would be good to know though as there maybe others (possibly me included I dunno) that are close to getting bounced too.

    I genuinely dunno why Claire and Flasher have been bounced rightly or wrongly. Imo they were sound posters.

    You're quite right that the admins don't have to justify their decisions. As SKII said on another thread that can lead to more keech posts and another round of blame and excuse.

    But it seems to me that the concern here is that people have been bounced out for not having the right sense of humour for the Bounce. This potentially affects everybody who posts if they feel like having a laugh with another poster on a thread. Which is most everybody who posts on The Pie Stand. Hence the level of concern here.

    I don't know what the answer is. Apart from the porn link (which I missed, so I don't know who did that) it seems to be a matter of degree as to whether or not the rules have been broken, not the law. Nobody knows what degree of banter/abuse is acceptable and what is over the top. Admins can't be expected to know who are good buddies and like to exchange a bit of personal abuse on here and who has come out with a cheap shot at a stranger. I don't know how often the 'report post' button is used, but it is there to help guide admins to posts that people have taken exception to. Maybe this could be used better? A relaxation of the rules whilst still staying within the law? A disclaimer that posters have to agree to, saying that they are willing to engage in some verbal jousting before getting access to The Pie Stand? A lower age limit? A clean slate all round and sign up to the new rules.

    As I say I don't know, but there's a couple of thoughts at least. I have no idea how practical they are as I have never run a forum.

    Then surely that runs the risk of "them against us"?

    I've been around forums for a long time and when the harmony is gone, its gone.

    Do we learn nothing from our beloved team and their dressing room bust ups?

    Are you suggesting the Admins are taking the John Collins stance?

    Where's Petrie when you need him? anyone got a clip board?

    I think there were those around here who forgot the Bounce is just like real life; just like your local.

    How do you choose a local?

    You go in quietly have a look around and if it suits your personality you hang around and get known. You can join in, or start, conversations from the very start but your good sense will tell you, if you want to stay, you dont act like a tube. You wouldnt act like a homophobe in Pricillas or invite your flute band into Tamson's and expect to be flavour of the month!

    Why should the internet be any different? Why is it some folk think its OK to be abusive to folk they dont know?

    I dont know why these folk have been banned recently, some I would have had out earlier others that Ill miss.

    Not to me, no.I'm not fussed either way by who is an admin and who's not.I know a few of them and get on fine with them, I also know a few non-admin members and likewise get on fine.It's a task I would never offer to do and I'd empty plenty of people for no good reason if given the ability to.As a collective I think they do alright.

    The Bounce operates a infractions (penalty) system. 20 infractions points incurs a weeks ban from the forums.50 a permanent ban!
    Infractions points are issued for reasons given at the time.Bans may vary in length.

    I know for a FACT claire never received anything like that.
    Claire's ban was because one of her post's wasn't funny admin deleted it.

    She wrote which is mild compared to everything else on the thread (aimed at jamie who claire get's on with on this and elsewhere) stabbed in the hawnd with a spork for hiding the pie stand and bouncing funny people.

    Now that's no reason for being banned or even a warning imo
    It was funny, it was bringing the thread back on topic.

    can i ask what happened to the bounce jail where the said bounced could make a case for them being bounced. i personally think its unfair the bounced involed don't know why they were bounced or for that fact are able to appologise for there crime if there was one.

    the bounce have lost 2 females from the forums that we know of which is sad as not many female posters on here regular & ones that can take a joke. i know the admins have a sh1t time but the least they can do if they bounce someone is e-mail them & say why & giving theman e-mail addy to reply or as i say re-instate the jail
    Group 4 were in charge of that the last time I heard
