This is a continuation of the overlong Discussion about the Suspension List. That thread has been closed as administratively unmanageable.

The Suspension List is found here.

Why not get rid of this ridiculous thread
altogether? All it's done is cause trouble,
how many have been suspended or banned
because if this thread.

Personally, I'd be glad to see it gone. However, people do get suspended, mostly for comments in another thread. Then THAT thread, whatever it is, gets hijacked or sidetracked about what got said or why did that happen or whatever. So this thread (and the old one) are intended to collect that discussion instead of ruining numerous threads. However, that is the sole purpose of THIS thread, and it, in turn, should be kept at least mostly to that topic.

Just a quick sidebar BBB, if that thread was getting unmanageable, I would assume the Election 2016 thread is not far behind?

Indicative and insightful when the most popular thread on a gambling forum is about who has been / is suspended.

My suggestion is that there is no need for discussion about it- the thread should be for mods only simply putting the suspension in witting and what it was for end of story .... The rest is just nonsense

I agree there is no need to discuss it, but like BBB said, people will talk when they see a name, especially one as popular here as kewlj and want to discuss it. This allows a thread for that, rather than doing it on the thread that it happened, and on the thread another suspension happened and so on and so forth. It really is a necessary evil

Bbb, you should edit your original post to add a link to the suspension list itself.

(Edit: Good idea, thanks. Done. BBB)

There isn't. Make a rule that no discussion
of suspensions are allowed. That would
be great.

Before this thread existed there were complaints about every suspension all over the forum. I wanted to consolidate the complaining into one sty where those who liked it could frolic in the mud and those who didn't could easily avoid it.

I know 99.54% of my decisions here get questioned, but creating the original discussion of the suspension list thread I think was one of my better ones.

To those who don't like it, let me make a radical suggestion -- don't read it.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.
