    Worst case scenario, I'm sure we have a few IT friendly individuals here who could establish an impromptu alternative for us to trade on, with costs managed by a subscription fee.

    SS cant go down. I'm already banned from most American forums and no desire to go back. They suck.

    I can still block members from individual threads though. @hardyakkagold will find that out.

    Thanks @Gazza79, but the only agenda I have is to try to ensure this forum is not a replica of other gold forums.

    Which means this particular moderator will not remain neutral but will express his opinions.

    I was on Bullionstackers for a day or two but said something politically wrong in a political thread and was banned.
    I hadnt say anything bad but was surprised to see so many Trump pumpers and Democrat haters on a stacking site and I mentioned that. As stackers we should all understand the truth behind right and left by now and not foster those false ideals and stand above the sheep.
    I haven't returned since being banned even though it was a warning and temporary.

    Right now I'm banned from Treasurenet for scolding the members for being dickeheads to the newbies.
    Even when the newbies challenge advice or anything they are called stupid, belittled or a member is calling for a ban. So childish and stupid when they are just asking questions but everyone gets so butthurt.
    Funny thing is, it was all west coasters and New Yorkers that were acting like jerks and wanting to lecture the newbies on how stupid they are. I just hate that stuff and I dont get the hurt internet feelings thing. How can that even be possible haha.
    New York and the west coast have already lost alot of their mining rights and they didnt like me saying that if they want to lecture they should lecture themselves.
    It was considered offensive to another member.

    I remember the first time I panned for gold and I was one of those lucky guys. I happened onto the bonanza and as I was looking at all the gold in my pan and I thought I would need at least three big snuffer bottles for all that, but I needed to pan it down to clean it up.
    By the time I panned it down I had learned what mica was and later learned there was no gold in that upper section of creek at all.

    If I would have had someone behind me telling me I was stupid and I should be banned, maybe I wouldnt be where I am in my prospecting today.
    Just a funny story but something i relate to.
    Damn mica.

    It's dangerous to mention Trump on a forum with many Americans. I left another forum because of this.
