Banned Users

As most here know, very, very few users get banned from this forum. It is not something we do lightly.

With that said, TheRifleman has been banned.

I know this will make a lot of users happy and probably upset others.

But after get a lot of complaints and PMs about his behavior on the board and lot and lots of consideration, I made the decision that his posting was becoming too disruptive and driving too many quality posters off the board.

I understand if you disagree. I respect that. I also hope you understand why I chose to do this.

Hopefully he finds a more suitable place to post his thoughts and feelings about Boston politics.

Feel free to PM me if you have any questions or concerns.

On a last note, let's not use this thread to pile on. Thanks.

Re: Banned Users

Why havenít we banned an obvious troll? Pathetic moderation honestly, letting trolling run rampant.

I'm guessing this what you're looking for: http://www.archboston.org/community/...=ignore&u=5762

Re: Banned Users

I think the ignore button is the ideal option.

It's better to let the troll run rampant instead of handing over your creation to a bunch of Wolfs watching the hen house.
