    Okay guys I was just reading through here and well my recommendation is...we gotta step back and breathe. From the way things are going its a gang up on ToolKit, while Toolkit is fighting back...(which of course is instinct)...but yeah we need to stop and just let the 2 weeks pass...before anything else crazy happens

    While I will agree that we should not beat-up on the moderators, (they certainly have a tough enough job) I still would like to gather support for an early re-instatement for Dutch, based on his long history of good behavior.
    That should count for something.

    I think his banning has already served a purpose.

    Well...the beans, anyway, should contribute to the "trumpet" effect...whether that's Dutch or not, I'll leave to the gallery.

    We'll miss you Dutch.

    I am hoping that Palm announces a new product soon so we can have something else to pick on besides each other.

    What bothers me about his whole thing isn't that Dutch was banned. Everyone should, by now, understand how this site is moderated, and how arrogant the moderators can be.

    But it seems rather absurd that they banned Dutch without even telling him, and without clear explanation as to why (and the quoted text a few posts back is NOT an explanation). I think if you're going to ban someone, you at least owe them a PM explaning the reason for the ban and the duration. Based on Dutch's plaintive post under a new ID, it's clear the mods did neither.

    while I agree with you there should have been a post in the 'banned users' thread for them and/or a PM to the users, I feel you are overreacting.

    p.s. Ronbo's explanation is a valid one, bot got into a flame war and both got banned, pretty simple..

    Overreacting? I not sure why you say that? I didn't yell or get mad. I didn't flame anyone, or make any threats. I didn't even jump up and down or call anyone any names.

    Are you referring to my quotes? If the shoe fits..... Proverb

    I do think the mods are a bit too quick to pull the "banishment" trigger in most cases. If someone's a chronic offernder, or post nothing but flame bait, then fine, yank the plug. But in most cases a simple warning would do the job just as well, and without generating the animosity and dissention that banishment brings. But hey, it's their toy.

    I do notice that MTDN seems to be growing pretty rapidly, though.

    In the spirit of being on topic....hopefully Dutch will read this and know that we look forward to his triumphant return!
