I must say it was very entertaining to look at the members lists and see all the banned spammers, banned sock puppets, and banned trolls haha. There's nothing like a bit of naming and shaming. It's good to see a forum that is well run- Iv'e been trying to find one for a while. The last one I joined had only 4 posters, and I was banned from Atheism+ after my first comment, merely for innocently inquiring as to why they were still attacking Richard Dawkins. I was rewarded with a vicious pm from the moderator and a threat of 'punishment' via my ISP address. How naive I was. I was attracted to the name of the forum without knowing anything about its background. Apparently they all hate Dawkins on there, hence my immediate expulsion :cheers:

I think A+ is generally full of Dawkin wannabe groupies disgruntled that they weren't picked for backstage.
