No one has
been banned for making suggestions and responding to surveys like this or offering ideas to moderators and administration. Andy and we encourage the members to participate in these discussions (in a mature manner). Andy does consider the general consensus of the membership and combines that with his business goals for tFS.
However, he has final decision making and veto power because it is
and how he makes a living. Profitabilty is essential to keeping tFS alive plus Andy has a standard of conduct that he sets for all his forums. Decisions are made with those goals in mind.
Just so you know, members only get bannned for repeated and blatent disregard for the existing rules. Multiple warnings are given out well in advance so every member has an opportunity to correct his/her behavior. Everything is documented and communicated to the offending member. This is done in complete confidence, so other members don't even know it's going on. When someone is banned, we do not make an announcement and the reason is not publicized. So you can not possibly know why someone has been banned ... because you are not privy to all the facts.
I hope this clears up that misconception. Please keep offering your opinion and voting in these surveys ... Andy really does want to know what the membership prefers.
