I have been wondering the same thing.  I didn't think anything would stop the multi-posting FX shore of a suspension.

It's strange that they seem to be logging on but not posting. It's doubly strange that they aren't responding to the new GW study.

So Big Warming finally caught up with them? *sigh*

 ;)

Okay, seems the new rules aren't going impact me very much since I don't post in GW. So I guess it's fine.

Just to clarify... the changed policy with regards to warnings will be implemented on all the forums, not just GW. Not to imply that Anders has to worry about that, but I thought it handy to point out. ;)

I don't know.  Anders did threaten to murder my family last week in a PM, but I didn't say anything - the old warning system was just so spineless, you know?  :P

Not that I intend to break this rule, but approximately how long is this indeterminate period of time? More than a week but less than a month? A couple months or so? A year or more? Life? I have to admit, if I stayed here for 5 years I would probably say enough warnable things over that time to get the bane (if banning = 5 warnings).

I am really hesitant to give out a number, even a rough estimate, because someone is going to be a rules lawyer about it.

I'll say this, though: The unit of measurement will be best measured in months... not weeks, and not years.

Instead of having a single-topic sub-forum with a very polarizing subject, why not just throw it in with politics.........

Also, on this forum it turned into the same 2 or 3 guys spamming links and it kind of began to look like the SGU itself was endorsing AGW denial to the new user exploring the boards. Hence the relegation to the ghetto.

That is the best description of the whole AGW issue I've ever seen!
