    Pity it wasn't/isn't me then. We're still only on 999.

    Technically you are member 2049, you can see this on the link to your profile (https://forum.expatindo.org/members/gratilla.2049/).

    Yes that means there are over 1000 banned members already. 99.9% of them are spam accounts though. That's about 1-2 accounts per day since the forum started. Keeps the moderators busy I guess.

    Ooops.

    Get banned, get a kiss.
    Get banned, get a kiss.
    Hmm tough one.

    On the subject of bans, though, I see a number of names here familiar from a competing site, some of whom "accused" me of being (permanently) banned there. Actually that is incorrect. I was suspended. Pedantic? I don't think so. Banning is for those who infart [sp] a rule. Suspension is for smart a$$es like myself who are careful not to infart [sp], but do not give the owner the nipple-licking subservience they think they are entitled to!

    I was told that my suspension would be lifted if I apologized and offered the appropriate respect.

    No chance.

    A competing site? You get me lost here. There is no competition, Gratilla. Both forum are useful resource for the community and there is certainly no competition and quite a few differences in fact. At least from our point of view. The main difference perhaps being that one is alive and the other moribund.

    You may find out that you "know" many of the users here, most users of Living in Indonesia forum having moved with us when we decided to create Expatindo.

    We also have been suspended, or banned, or whatever one want to call it... and to be honest, none of us give a rat's ass about it. It was 2 years ago and fortunately we have better to do in our lives than to keep bringing it up.

    We have been tired of the way the forum was administrated and we have done what we have often advised to people who were unhappy: we have created our own ship and we are the sole captains on board.

    Anyway, warm welcome among us. Sorry, no kiss. :)

    Touchy, touchy!

    If I nitpicked your English (non-native) the way you did/do mine (native), I'd be in line for a banning. My "Competing", in context, is purrfectly correct and actually compatible with your longer critique.

    Ban and suspend are different; the latter being more exclusive (for disrespecting the deserving), the former for the hoi polloi intent on rule infarting [sp].

    Har, har, I seem to remember an Admin so intent on joining the banshee club that he went as far as to ban himself! [Excuse me while I larf again - Ho, ho, ho - har, har, harrr]

    Congratulations for the move (and change in ownership) though. Remember, I did propose you for sainthood and a Nobel for the grossly underappreciated over there.

    Enjoy our debates, though now we're on your site maybe I should let you win occasionally.

    Moving on. :wink:
