  1. Yess,

    Read and comply with moderator warnings and edits or you will be banned.

    Last warning.

    AD.
     
  2. Funtz,

    Start listening to Moderator warnings, watch your spelling and try to punctuate your posts, so that they are somewhat legible.

    You also need to watch what you are putting in your posts. In the opinion of the moderators you are borderline flaming, which is not tolerated here.

    You have been warned before about this sort of thing.

    Now you are being warned officially. Hopefully you can see the "writing on the wall"...

  3. Paskal,

    Start listening to Moderator warnings, watch your spelling and try to punctuate your posts, so that they are somewhat legible.

    You also need to watch what you are putting in your posts. You have been viewed multiple times attempting to start "A vs B" type threads or attempting to turn existing threads into the same thing. You also post one-liners and otherwise useless posts that add nothing to the discussion at hand.

    In order to have a hope of staying on this website you need to,

    1. Read and understand the rules and abide by them. They are perfectly clear.

    2. Make an argument and support it. If you can't yet post a link, verify your information by other means, ie: page ... of book title....

    3. Check to see if an existing thread exists before starting a new one on the same topic. You'll find there almost always is. The moderators are tired of following you around the boards and fixing your posts.

    You are therefore now being warned officially in relation to these matters. The next step is a banning. Hopefully you can see the "writing on the wall"...

  5. Official warning goes out to Stryker001.

    Continually posting off-topic threads and posts and ignoring mods is the fastest way to be banned.

    Start posting DEFENCE related threads and posts or stay away. Your conduct of late is considered to be borderline trolling by the Mod team and won't be tolerated as evidenced by your threads being closed and posts deleted.

    Last warning.
     
  6. Mod edit:

    After discussions between the Administrator and the Mod Teams any further discussions in relation to the Exportability of the F-22 and related subjects are requested to cease until such time as a MAJOR announcement is made by an appropriate authority confirming that the F-22 is available for export outside the United States.

    An appropriate authority would include: the USAF, Lockheed Martin or an official US Government (Executive/Congressional) announcement.

    The arguments back and forth about this have become entirely circular and are no longer providing the quality discussions we are seeking for this site, merely rehashing the same old ground.

    Please continue to enjoy the site and discuss any defence related topics that appeal to you. Just give this one a rest. All similar discussions will be monitored closely from now on.

    regards

    Warning issued to Firehorse. When posting, be certain to abide by the forum rules, particularly #2. When posting a link or list of links, a line explaining or describing what the link goes over is insufficient and is still considered a "one-liner" reply. In order for something to be other than a "one-liner," input from the poster as to what their take is on the news/opinion/data and its relevance to whatever the thread topic is, is required.

    This has been an issue before which a ban has been issues. Failure to cease this posting behavior will result in another, longer term ban.

    All future new registrations will need to be approved by the admin before you can post.
