    No, as explained in other thread, I think it would just make things worse.

    Interesting the Forum Advisors comes up, whatever happened to them?

    Do you mean as like missing in action? Or am I misreading the post?

    Sort of seems so. They've gone silent as Advisors. This thing Eth is doing is something I'd expect from Advisors. Maybe make him one to get them active again.

    You make a good point; I've noticed that recently as well. I'll bring it up in the advisors forum and see if we can get some discussion going on it. Thanks for bringing it up.

    I would suggest that before anyone votes on this issue, that they go to announcements and read every person that was banned since we started making it public.

    The list goes back 2yrs 9 months, I think you will find there wasnt many banned at all. Some of them are doubles of socks

    I don't understand how we could have such a big response in the first thread on this topic and almost no response to the actual poll.

    Some of the bans were warranted. Some of them never contributed anything to any discussion and others could be rational contributors much of the time. Those who had a history of being nothing but a troll don't need to be offered this amnesty.

    I think most of the decline here is people because of leaving on a voluntary basis. Primarily because of the conduct of those who claim "RWNJ's" are running people off.

    My question is, how would they know the amnesty was offered?
