    There have been some very active members banned from BHW recently which I have been wondering about.

    WTF do they do? In particular, Rambo? Anybody know?

    There was a thread exactly like this a couple weeks back. The answer was if they got banned there was probably a good reason and that most of them didn't need to be discussed publically. The end result was that if the mods ban them, then it is for a really good reason.

    Mostly attempt to build up a reputation by post count and then PM flood trying to sell products.

    Yeah, I know it was posted a few weeks ago. Guess what? I am still wondering why he/they were banned. (BTW, I may have posted the previous thread)

    But don't get me wrong. I trust the moderators and administrators of this site. It just seemed to me he was such a helpful member. I never received a PM from him trying to sell anything.

    Anyway, I thought maybe somebody may still keep in contact with him and knew something we didn't. I am just curious.

    The simple answer is that they violated the rules.

    Unless it is something in your face, like people getting stupid in a high profile thread, any bannings are kept between the person involved and the staff, just as it should be.

    I can understand keeping it between the parties involved, but couldn't everybody learn something from it. Actually, I respected Rambo. I just wanted to know where he went.

    Ugh why the hell do you care? YOU'RE obviously not banned. People get banned for breaking rules clearly laid out in front of them. The mods and admins do their damn jobs here and frankly if you're not involved directly, stay the hell out of the way.

    Look, we give some people a little leverage based on their contributions to this forum. I'm NOT saying we let people get away with stuff, but we are more willing to give someone that is a valued member an opportunity to redeem themselves after screwing up.

    With that being said, if you see that a Jr VIP/Exe VIP has been banned, you can be SURE it was for a damn good reason. One that was not excusable.

    As we welcome feedback, it's bad form to talk about why someone got the boot. It only fuels unnecessary discussion and it's no ones business but the people that were directly involved.

    Rambo was banned for blatantly disregarding the rules of this forum. He knew that if got caught he would get punished, he decided to do it anyway.

    Want to learn from this? Re-read the rules and follow them to the best of your ability.

    This is the first time I have had to say this, but here goes: FUCK YOU.

    I respected the guy and want to know what happened to him.

    And this is why we don't talk about banned members.
