I find it necessary to ban several people for a lack of civility.  These include Tyler, GCP and CK.  pl

  1. Colonel Lang,
    I hope that after a due lapse of time you feel able to reinstate them. Certainly, I can see the absolute necessity of maintaining civility on this blog — which arises precisely from the way in which it brings people of vastly different backgrounds and ideas together, in a way that inevitably sparks conflict and bitterness.
    However, while with all these three there are occasions on which I have strongly disagreed with what they have written, I have found comments they have posted giving me food for thought, and helping me in the always rather difficult attempt to keep a relatively open mind.

    Good order and reasonable manners will be maintained. “Flogging will continue until morale improves.” pl

    I personally enjoy this site because of not
    only the subjects discussed but the disparate
    personalities that take part. I would like to
    think I learn something every time I log on.
    You and many others far removed from these shores
    give us an unvarnished perspective from different
    cultural and historical backgrounds. I disagree
    that this would occasionally or inevitably lead
    to conflict or bitterness as I have not seen
    this from the above mentioned participants.

    People will respect each other and act respectfully or there will be no SST. I don’t need to put up with trashy behavior. pl

    Isn’t this the second second time Tyler and GCP have been given a timeout?

    Yes and I may add more. pl

    I was referring to David H
    and others not from the US
    not the people you banned.
    Sorry for the cloudy phrasing.

    Thank you for this.
    In my view we are your guests; uncivil and uncivilised behaviour (two non-US spellings in a row) is unacceptable and tedious.
