Regarding recent behavior of some forum members, and Mod/Admin response: for the record, at least two Moderators or Admins are required to ban an existing member. The procedure of touching base and hashing through the issues may take time, so it may not happen immediately in any given case.
We will not necessarily be updating our ban list publicly going forward, however since I am sure that this will be posted about, Jim and I, the two existing Moderators of this Forum, have mutually decided to ban Barry. This was due to his ongoing and persistent disruptive and harassing behavior of Forum members, Moderators, Admins and CFI employees.
We were willing to bend over backwards for him, however our tolerance has his limits. Going forward we will be keeping a much tighter ship, which should make for a more pleasant and reasoned atmosphere for mutual inquiry into the sorts of topics that we all find so interesting.
We will also be expecting new Forum software and capabilities in the near future, which should enable all sorts of interesting functionality with other parts of the CFI website. So we have a lot to look forward to!
Thanks to all for your consideration and ongoing civility.
