    The A6 Thread has probably got the site record for bannings and suspensions, and the Thread itself was suspended for a time. I myself got a ban merely for telling someone to 'shut up'....well, fair enough, I suppose. As I see it, the main problem with the A6, a highly-contentious subject at the best of times, in its heyday was the sheer level of venom, threats and personal abuse, and I doubt if every single one of the culprits had any real interest in the subject. It's quietened down now, thankfully, but somewhat disappointingly has condensed down to a relatively small number of posters. I can understand Admin for wishing to straighten things out on the A6 (and other threads), but I do feel the 'qualification' of 50 posts on Ripper subjects is a bit much. Oddly, as I see it, the one current subject which has generated almost as much angst as the A6 is actually a Ripper subject - the Diary!

    I hope you can get back on it soon, Cody75111!

    You’ve surprised me there Graham. I’ve looked on the A6 thread over the last year or two and it’s been very polite. I’ve certainly always been impressed by the knowledge on there. It sounds like it’s outdone the Wallace thread in the past? Then again, any Ill-feeling on there has been generated by one person.

      There's a Creative Writing thread, perhaps you could use that to get your tally up - assuming there's no restrictions on that thread!

          HS, I referred to the 'heyday' of the A6 thread, which IMHO was a few years ago, when it was very not polite. It's certainly been polite and peaceful recently, after Admin read the Riot Act and closed it for a time! There were a number of posters who seemingly came on purely to cause trouble, but these are long gone. As, sadly, are a number of excellent posters who we no longer hear from. But the A6 thread does continue, which is the main thing.

          Why, when I 'quoted' your post, are all the hyphen's changed into &#8217? Are we under surveillance....?

            It’s weird. That happened to me the other day when I quoted someone. You’re post with my quote appears normal on my screen. I think it’s happened to me a couple of times since I’ve been a member though I don’t know why. Technology is sorcery to me.
