    It could be solved by ignoring him. Like many other people did a long time ago.

    That freedom of discussion is what is making this site what it is right now. Don't think the other sites don't know that as well. That's why you have jackasses making troll accounts and blogging about it trying to make mturkforum.com look bad, so don't throw that freedom shit in our face.

    Is it? Because I said something and got a ban warning about it.

    Oh, well it's not nearly as tempting, then.

    I think you should just ban us all and get new members. Problem solved.

    We've had a rule now for a while that you are not to provoke/deliberately attack/"bait" other members. Thanks for reminding me that I need to create a rules page.

    Glad I could be of service. I wasn't attacking or baiting anyone, I was making a fucking observation. Every time you post anything directed towards anyone other than MikeTurk24, he's right there to properly thank you for it. But if we say anything that even hints in the direction of being about him, he's more than happy to step up to the plate and flame right back. Not so much as a fucking word gets spoken to him about it, while the rest of us get ban warnings in our inbox.

    If you read the thread, you will notice that he received one too.

    Interesting idea, and it could be shown to members only. However, I think it would "leak out" to the Great HITS forum.. by snotty remarks, etc in that thread.

    Because you all are not discussing what should be done with signatures here.

    I apologize for offending anyone on the site...i will take my signature down permanently as it is obviously causing commotion. Yes, i was banned for 3 days, deservedly so at the time a few weeks ago, but since then i have not came at anyone as Andy suggested to me. The issue arose today becuase i was questioned and called out, although it would have probably been best to ignore it on my end. Anyway, lets all go back to turking as we are all better than this, myself included.

    Would certainly be nice if Rubin, Two lakes, course atlas or johnk could post a monster batch to ease us all :)

    I don't think many would complain if people kept signatures like Naisybee has. Showing stats is fine, but when they take up more than every other post then people get irritated.

    i think a membrs only vent thread is needed, and sigs need to be be sized to normal.

    Thanks Mike. If someone calls you out / baits you / or provokes please do not respond. Instead send me a PM. Also, if you have an issue with the way the site is ran (Ie: signature limitations) please do not post in the Great HITS thread, instead create a new thread here. Eg: this one.

    His signature is larger than the TWO you told me to remove. can you not put a nice little red admin message in his?

    Anyone for a debate about politics and religion? That would be fun.

    I'm not sure if you have him on ignore, but he removed his signature.
