    Or is it okay to suggest manic people want to kill? Is it appropriate to even joke about that?

    I happen to have Bipolar Disorder and I've never threatened to kill anyone in my life.

    Now... where are the house rules about equality and diversity? Are you, or anyone else on this forum, above the law?
    What you probably need to be aware of is General (or the subforum Brexit) is open season for abuse and mocking - if you're a bit sensitive this area may not be for you. The professional threads are (mostly) abuse free. Youhave to say something quite bad to get banned from General, but it's 'easier' to get banned from the professional areas.

    Try not to take anything on here personally - once this lot sense blood, they'll be circling like sharks.

    Thanks Whorty,

    I'm not particular sensitive and I'm not taking anything personally. It's morbid curiosity.

    I like to see where the boundaries are and how those who enforce the rules determine them.

    In my experience, people in power don't like it when you know your rights and regardless of whether we call this board "The Wild West" we can't break the law.

    E.g. I can't sell drugs and rent boys on here but do please advise me if that's not the case?

    I'm genuinely not looking to rattle moderator cages and sometimes my own SOH is wide of the mark. However...

    There are laws about what you can and can't say about particular protected groups online. The rule of law applies to this forum and in terms of jurisdiction (let's say this site was hosted by servers in the US) the law is fairly consistent across the western world on that point.

    I'll give you an example, let's say I posted a picture of a woman and made a lewd joke about women in the workplace. I expect a moderator would remove that post but let's say they didn't and a female forum member cried indirect discrimination.

    In court the defence of "we all have a right to take the pee without fear or favour" would be absolutely taken apart.

    Having said that, I accept that on twitter etc. people are saying much worse and getting away with it. Is it right? No, but they only get away with it until someone flags the tweet and I think there is scope on this forum for me to be clear about my red lines.
    Oh **** off, seriously.

    NLYUK makes a good living on here, so she'd argue otherwise.

    Not sure the Mods have 'power' that they like to throw about ... more the case that they apply common sense on a case by case basis.

    Honestly, I'm not power hungry or mercenary. I have sympathy when you get emotional but will stay calm and profession (even on general). However, on the inside I'm clenching my fist like Tim Henman used to do when he won a point back in the days of Henmania. It's the good old British stiff upper lip.

    Come on, OG was trying to be funny, failing miserably but hey, that's Old Greg all over.

    A month ban is rather strong.
    I don't know who the "another member" is. But if it happened to be me (other thread), may I ask that his month's ban be commuted to an hour's session in my server room lair. Wearing heart-shaped handcuffs, and bent over my knee, I whip him with my rubber-tipped USB-cable cat-o-nine tails, with him shouting "I love CUK!" (Contractor UK)?

    What do you think NAT's "review process" consists of? Your debauchery is tame by comparison!
