The timeframe of infractions are likely a highly considerable variable. I've had my share, I'm sure. If you add up even the number of times I've butted heads with moderators, with that alone....

The in-length threads like these are occasionally a crossroads for one or more people. The reason being is that the moderators are naturally on pins and needles, just like many members reading these posts. Sometimes things get ugly. Sometimes members back down and chill out. I've never met anyone I didn't like, and I think the moderators feel the same way. But they do have a job to do, and it is imperative that it is respected regardless of anyone's alusion to the Constitution or whatever. AMDMB.COM obviously isn't a governmental body, it's a place where GUESTS can chill, a place to learn, a place to share.
