    Clearly in my 50s and in love with my cats, right? Just like every soy boy/girly man who may not subscribe to your way of life eh?

    Are you in your 50s or thereabouts though? Again, I'm seriously asking.

    Dude you've got it all figured out so why do you care? I'm sure whatever I tell you will be met with a smug response telling me how I've failed at life for not fitting into your narrow definition of a man

    I thought I was really clear last week when I banned PeterN and posted this thread in the Political Section that these personal jabs need to stop. Apparently I wasn't taken seriously, because not only have the personal jabs continued, but they are now being dragged into the normal parts of the forum (in this case, the "Working in the Industry" section) where everybody else has to read this petty bickering. That's really bad for the forum, and I can't have that.

    So to make myself MORE clear, I am banning Chris and D Halgren. Nonsense like this in the Off Topics Political section is one thing, but when it gets carried into the normal parts of the forum, I'm taking a zero tolerance approach. As I've explained before, 99% of the membership here doesn't want that stuff on the forum. So I will happily cut the 1% to keep the 99% happy.

    I do recognize that I'm doing this out of anger. It was just last week that I asked for this stuff to stop, so I consider the ignoring of my request to be disrespectful to both the forum and to me personally. (I know I shouldn't take it personally, but I do.) So when I cool off in a week or a month, I may lift the bans.

    The good old "don't feed the troll" should be applicable here.
