Got a complaint? Use one of those.
MANY people have had more than one chance - so there is that
120,000 citizens and one sheriff - I ban first so we can BOND - if that doesn't go well I refund the money and send them elsewhere.
Haven't shot one person to this pint but I have had 3 people arrested and put in jail - one while I was on the phone with the police - that one was great!

Love

If you are speaking of the one that has posts from the last couple of days.......Topics like that one come up every few months and usually the same actors (who were banned for one reason or the other from AM in the past that pile on with the same BS) or the complainers/tightwads who dont like the yearly fee on AM come piling in. I had a look and several long time members of AM have spoken up to defend AM including an active CN moderator. The topic is now locked but still visible which is why you got that error I am sure. 

I retired from the staff over there a while back as it was getting too time consuming so I no longer have access to the background of whats up with why you cant see it anymore.....what I do know from my 5 years on staff over there is AM bashing topics get shut down fairly quickly. Most of the staff are long time AM'ers as well and respect the fact that you try to run a pretty tight ship.

Just for the record, Herb York attempted to respond here, but only after the thread was locked. In the interest of sharing both sides of the story, the following is what he would have posted.
