    Earlier this month I was banned from SBAF for several days. I assume it was for these last posts:

    https://www.superbestaudiofriends.o...incorrect-audio-blog.7261/page-43#post-307381

    Rereading the thread again I see that I misread Merv's post and that my initial response was tangential. Nevertheless, it is still unclear why my responses on a "politically incorrect" thread resulted in a ban. I received no explanation for my banning.

    I am only posting this publicly because PMs sent yesterday to @purr1n and @zerodeefex asking "Why was my account suspended?" resulted in no explanation and another day-long ban.

    I understand SBAF is a private site and membership is at the owners discretion. However I urge @purrin1 and the moderators to provide clarity and communication on what types of behavior and content they seek to discourage through bannings. Otherwise we are left to rely on guesswork and mind reading.

    I have noticed last couple years as I grow older, even if I know my shit or have a point or someone says something I don't like.... It's better to just keep my mouth shut and move on. You don't always have to agree and you don't always have to let everyone know you disagree. Life is short find common ground and move on. Political debate is evil in most settings just drives people apart, it's the new religion for some. I've probably said too much..

    If I didn't ban you personally, then I probably don't know anything about it. There are six other mods and who knows when they will decide to be particularly trigger happy. The other mods know that I check up with them in spurts of activity and often go AWOL for days if not a week. My concentration is content.

    Checking on this is not a priority for me right now. Daughter had to go to ER last night and she is in surgery as I type this.

    I am helpless and have nothing else better to do than to type this post right now as I wait in the lobby of the hospital. I will also not lift a finger to investigate either while I wait because I not in the mood to investigate, especially after the Garu / Verum incident just two days prior.

    Sorry if I think SBAF or my problems are more serious than yours at this time.

    I hope your daughter heals quickly, Marv, and I hope the same for all the lesser wounds here on SBAF. Although one can be too strict or too lenient, we can never be too compassionate.

    Sorry to hear that. Hope she gets better soon, Marv. Family is even more important than work, let alone a hobby.

    Praying for your daughter and your family, Marv. Few things more trying than seeing your kids in the hospital.

    Awful to hear; this is truly a nightmare scenario. All hopes that this is cleared safely and recovery is quick for you and your family.
