    Thoughts to ponder from another thread:

    Unnamed6> So Admin has a tendency to do wholesale deletions than just simply banning people, and sometimes banning people with little rhyme or reason once a complaint, perhaps simple, is lodged against an individual poster. Admin may not have all the time in the world to vet claims against individual posters and may just trust complaints as they go to him. I suspect that some posters have come to realize this and have otherwise manipulated Admin to ban, if not delete posters from RJ, as a means to settle their petty difference with other posters.

    Unnamed6> Though I suspect Admin has some level of respect for me, I will say this about him though...he has a history of easily deleting posters without any real thought in doing it. He's largely absent from the forums but still wants to regulate it, and a simple complaint, and the subsequent deletion of a person being complained about, provides him with a means of regulating the forums (of which I suspect some people have taken well advantage of, but who, I wouldn't know

    Unnamed6> Perhaps the person or persons doing the complaining, and is ultimately behind the bannings/deletions of [GladiatorSam and Pouncer], was someone or someones that had argued with them on Israel and Palestine?

    I wonder about this too. I hope admin would explain his process of banning/deleting RJ members' accounts.

    I, for one, am glad Sam and Pouncer are gone.

    lots of posts on rj are political, authored by peeps that thrive on this, maybe they are paid.
    if these guys are banned i am sure they will come back with a new account; maybe already; "JTheM"

    What happened to Sam? Just noticed he disappeared. For what reason?

    I can't remember who Pouncer was.

    I don't know who Pouncer was. But Sam seemed like a pretty nice guy and was an overall decent contributor to this board--much more so than you.

    Sam couldn't string two coherent thoughts together to make a sentence. He often contradicted himself from one sentence to the next or completely misunderstood the original post. And he said he graduated from an American university. The state of higher education is worse than I thought.

    Sam was a shill for the Ministry of Middle Eastern Tourism.
