Ban or not to Ban that is the question.

Silicon Investor was designed to be a discussion website and was for many years, but in recent years it seems to have become a lot of little fiefdoms where moderators who have a thread to express their opinions have total control on who can post or respond to, or question their thoughts. I have been a member since 1996 and I feel it is time to turn back the clocks and open up the discussions again.

I would like to see a revision or better control of the thread banning process

Presently it seems that any moderator who doesn’t like a valid or legit question posted on their thread can easily banish the poster for no real reason.

This happened to me recently and I decided it is time to free up SI to make it again a discussion site vs a blog site where posters can respond to a post and not worry about getting banned because of their question or comment.

So the purpose of this thread is for people who feel they are unjustly banned on a thread, to post the comments in question which appears to have gotten them banned and let other users here post their comments on whether the ban appears to be justified or not.

Let the users present their case and let others comment and SI Ron can still be the judge.
