Well here is the dead horse and I am going to beat it.

I cannot argue with wanting to stop forum violations and keep things friendly, but this does kinda add fuel to the "they are trying to silence us" cryers in regards to all this free time controversy.
I am not trying to get my account suspended. Even though this is from another Atari owned site I want to be very careful here.
Our aim in taking this action is not to drive our users away from this forum as we value all our community members, but we do wish to make this a friendlier environment where anyone can join in discussions without worry.
In regards to moderators within this forum, that will be discussed with our staff and then handled appropriately. If you wish to comment on this topic or have concerns feel free to send me a pm and I will do what I can to field your questions.
Please be assured that this decision was made in the best interest of the overall community and we look forward to your continued participation here on the Atari.com forums!
