    Ha! haa!! Take it easy guys... ;)

    Just curious to know... Has any of the members in forum been banned from any other forums... Can someone recall the reasons or the episodes that lead such banning... How does it feel to be banned ?

    Singh ji, mainu pata ki appa'n saare great haa'n,
    par kee kariye, assi mile thorra late haa'n

    'great' was used for tukbandi only, u know what word shud be used for actual cause.

    Dull and Boring! Well, to some extent I agree, not fully though. Even looks like my sense of humor is dying :-(

    I've been banned on multiple forums, lol

    Mostly only for my views on certain issues.

    Sikhnet Discussions - Banned for claiming "Janam Sakhris" as mere stories rather than true events...specifically baba deep singh

    Sikhsangat - Same deal...banned for a day on my views for Janam Sakhris. Only for a day I think, I'm not sure.

    haha, ;)

    Neutral Singh ji,

    'Sikh' ji is the man needing special attention. We need to take care of his 'banning' related desires :)

    Tejwant ji, I dont think, Janam Sakhis are just some writer's creation. However, if there is any miracle type event included in those, then I try not to comment.

    Sure, will make a thread for the same.

    Thanks.

    lol yeah, getting banned gives you a feeling of satisfaction.

    Simply because all these forums state "Open discussion, share your thoughts!" and then the moderators show their hyporcrisy when they ban you if you disagree with them.

    Getting banned makes me feel like I've found the weakness among the forum members and so on. They usually ban when I disagree with their views, and then they can't find any more evidence to support their claims.

    Although, I am disappointed sometimes when I get banned...and I agree with the banning. Sikhnet told me I was banned because young kids would look at the website and there was no need for them to be exposed to such a controversial thread or so forth. Makes sense, I don't want to be known for corrupting the youth. Specially about the Janam Sakhi ones...its better that the little kids regard the stories as true, rather than even think of other ways to disprove them.

    I wasn't always a strange child...;)

    Oh yeah!! i remember being banned from one of the forums for advertising about sikhphilosophy forum by changing the heading a thread running for more than 50 odd posts all about sikhism... ;) they were fast enough to act and i was banned for cool two weeks...

    Guess what ? i hate them for that and never visited that forum again. You cee, Sikh can never be intimidated... ;)

    I have never been banned, however, I've been warned for advertising my own forum on a Christian site. They said it wasn't good to link to other sites that were non-Christian and that I am not allowed to give any information on any other religions other than Christianity, even if they got the information wrong! I was even warned about giving information on Gnostic Christianity!

    You don't hate them. You're probably annoyed with them or frustrated, but you don't hate them. :)

    Was I ever banned? No. But I wish I had have been banded from certain fora. One can waste a lot of time when one is searching! Delight to be a member of this site, though.

    Still_Searching,

    I came with a strategy to get banned on this site, and started spamming it by stamping each and every post on this forum. But look at this far-sighted site admin, he made me moderator, and now I am to reciprocate by obliging him with equal warmth. Anyway, I will try on some other forum for the same then ;-)

    Regards.
