@TerryMiller, Warning points are like demerits; you get them for violation of the site's rules. Example: Tommy45 calls JoeBob37 an ignorant ugly, idiot because JoeBob37 won't agree with him.

First Offense: Probably just get a Reminder - no points, just a reminder that that type of conduct is against the rules.

Then Tommy45 calls another member, Donk211, a blithering, stupid, fatherless fool, because Donk211 likes Glocks over the 1911.

Second Offense: Now Tommy45 gets a Warning. That means he is given negative points, usually just 1 to start.

Third Offense: It appears that Tommy45 is a slow learner as he insists on being rude and calls other members foul names at every chance. He might get 2 points this time, and then the cycle continues until suddenly, the software gives a 1- 3 day ban for his bad behavior. When he comes back, he is boiling with anger and calls every body all kinds of bad names and uses racist terms and derogatory language about another member's mother. Points pile up: When he hits a certain number in a certain period of time, the software that runs the joint will put a strike through on his user name and he will be outta here on a permanent basis.

I had a clue as to this, Joel. So far as I know, I've never even had a strike against me...

...well, except perhaps from someone that hates both Glocks and Nikon (cameras that is.)

The ignore function is one of the best parts of this place. You should try it!
It does make things interesting, like when you go to page 13, say, of a 15 page thread, and find there is only one post on that page. You always wonder which whiz-kid was going on about what, almost to the point where you have to look...well, almost.

I wouldn't ban anyone, and I don't put anyone on ignore because I disagree with them, but I have used the ignore function to clean up the New Posts feed. It gets tiresome seeing a cool thread get updated only to go into it to find out that it's just TedKennedy bragging about his lap times in the pool at Chappaquiddick again.

Hey - that silly tart that couldn't swim was a liberal gun grabbing socialist just like Hillary. My swimming out of that disaster did two things great for America. 1. It kept me from being electable as president, B. It took another liberal out of the gene pool.
