The admins are pretty forgiving, if a banned member were to contact the Admins and discuss the issues and make a commitment to follow the rules, we would likely give yet another chance.  That has happened.  Some chose to burn their bridges by sending a bunch of name calling e-mails, which only serves to assure us that we made a correct decision.

It does not help his cause to have someone posting a one sided view on his behalf, it does not tell the whole story, and its not the place to discuss specifics about a member in any event.

A very good way to get a quick warning or a ban is by insulting members or CR administrators in a public post.  I try to remove insulting posts that directly call someone a name, but obviously we do not read every post and rely on members to report serious issues. 


the question is, was it the case?

or was it a just a sensible MOD who don´t like to be corrected and thinks he is always right?

i don´t know!
i don´t know why he was banned but from what was presented to me.. it looks that way.

You quoted an admin above - did you read what you quoted, particularly the highlighted text?

As for what was presented to you, you seem to be listening to only one side of the story.  Sure, you can look over his posts and see no issues - that's most likely because his insulting posts were deleted after they brought to the moderators' attention.

Maybe you missed the other comments in this thread that seem to present a small part of the other side of the story (e.g., "Now that you mention it canon-f1 had insulted me too.").  Regardless, the key point is:

its not the place to discuss specifics about a member

You've asked the question, you've been answered by the site owner and another admin. I would suggest that now might be a good time to let the issue drop.  Unless, of course, you have another reason for pushing this issue.  For example, if you know Canon-F1 in the same way that Mikael Residal knows ankorwatt - i.e., you see him every time you look into a mirror.  I suppose the mods could deduce that from the IP addresses used, most forum software has the capability to show members that are likely to be the same person.

Clan Tartans are a victorian myth, an invention of English (spit) sloan rangers, as smart as a bonnie prince charlie or argyle rig out looks, and as much as Scots, adopted and ancestral have adopted the pleated kilt, it's about as Scottish as Ronald McDonalds.

My great grandfather mcwalnuts would turn in their grave if they thought I went along with the Tartan pretence!

Nuts, I say!


This is becoming too pornographic. I might have report it to the mods! Though i have to say that squirrel is well-h#$@. I bet he is very popular with the lady squirrels in his neighborhood.

Apologies for misspelling your last name, Mikael.

Bad things can be said about Canon here, the problem is when flame wars are started by individuals who post the same thing in nearly every thread they visit, even if that thread has absolutely nothing at all to do with that issue. Like this one.

Wait, you mean Canon sensors have less DR than Nikon's?!?!?  That's news to me. Don't just sit on a revelation like that, man...you should tell someone!!  ::)

Umm, sorry Guys, but What's a "No-teller" ?? and what's a "Yes-Teller" ??

Is that like, a Bank Teller ?? Why are we talking about Bank Tellers ??

I thought this thread was about Squirrels.

Maybe it's a "Squirrel-Teller".

I'd like to make a withdrawal please. From this thread. Though it looks like the feud might be heating up. Is it time to bring out the popcorn? I am craving squirrel-nut-zippers for some reason. (that is the name of a candy by the way, at least in the US). Am i setting myself up?

Where I am (Canada), we have Grey Squirrels, Black Squirrels (locally referred to as tree rats), and red Squirrels. The winters are so cold that the red Squirrels have learned to fly over the snow....

You also have Northern Flying squirrels. The Black Squirrels you have up there are a melanistic form of Gray Squirrel. Actually, by far most Grey Squirrels used to be the black form, but after Europeans arrived and chopped up the forests the Grey form became much more common in most of the East. The black form is more common these days in the more northern portion of the Gray Squirrels range.

Never seen a white squirrel, but would like to. When i was a kid, a neighbor had a squirrel in a small cage. I stuck my hand in to pet the cute squirrel, then quickly withdrew it when the cute little squirrel attacked it leaving many  painfull scratches on my hand. Too bad nobody was there to photograph this incident, or even better film it so I could make a movie and title it "Attack of the Killer Squirrel". Not sure why i shared this either, but we are discussing squirrels. Had to throw in there a little talk of photography at the end. :D

That's.......very informative, You clearly know your Squirrels, perhaps you could help me with some elucidation on Ankorwat's previous Post ?? Some points are less than clear.

It's clear now how to spell his Name
It's clear now Canon Sensors are Garbage, and Canon users are Losers.

But the rest I don't get

What's a Yes/No Teller ??
What's DR ?? I thought "Dead Reckoning", but it could mean something else
Whats "High Ceiling" ?? is that like 30,000 feet in a 747 ??
200-400 what ?? Squirrels ?? That's a damn load of squirrels

And he mentioned "We must know what we are talking about", I mean, everyone knows this thread has lost the Plot, and it's now about Squirrels, and Nut Zippers (sounds exceptionally painful), and who can Post the most bizarre Image of a Squirrel, and Criminals that Live upside down in a place called Downunder.

Yes, the photography thing at the end was going slightly off topic, stick to the Squirrels.

Yawn....

Thanks mods for all the unseen work you do keeping this place civilised, or even civilized depending where you live.
Lists like this live or die depending on the commitment of the list owner and the contribution of the unpaid mods.

No matter where on the planet you live, a quick visit to CR is an entertaining & informative daily destination.

DR stands for Dynamic Range.... as in the Dynamic Range of North American Squirrels is from Atlantic to Pacific, from tropics to the Tundra.....

I would have included a picture of a black squirrel, but it night-time here and black squirrels in the darkness don't show well.... my Canon camera does not have enough DR...
The best camera is the one in your hands
