I've gotten thrown in jail for saying what's on my mind in the past but here goes...
I think one of the reasons why people's accounts are no longer active over there is because many people change their email adresses. When they do they have to reactivate the account through the reactivation email sent to the new email adress. This address however isn't accepted by Resource software so the account now just becomes "stuck." I know I have the vocabulary or even this process I described a bit wrong but something or another to this affect is happening. Then, people just assume they're banned.
Another reason is because they actually got banned. I'm not standing up for or against anyone but remember that most people only like to tell you the good side of their story. There is a no nonsense attitude at the Resource so it's safe to imagine that some people's behavior could've been found to be incongruent with site policy. Even if not that, you can still ban someone that you personally don't like from your site right?
To tell you guys the truth, I loved the CRX Resource. I have over 2 thousand posts over there currently with over another thousand from years passed. And my posts are seldom short and go into alot of detail especially when I'm trying to help someone fix a problem. As much as I tried to do my part in keeping that place alive, there always seemed to be an awkwardness between the staff and the site admin. Honestly, I didn't like it that most of the staff was on a first name basis but Steve rarely adressed us by name, at least not me. If for example I always call a fellow co-worker by name but he NEVER does the same, instead refers to me by my employee I.D. number, there is very little connection there. That's the impersonal uninviting feeling I got. It's not good for business and even worse for keeping forum employees who work for free. And this, is something I will never tell anyone who I already know won't want to listen to it.
Others may not comment but John and myself always told it like it was. On the up side, this place is a great place. It's like the place most of us came from only there's a different name. Home is where the heart is. For the most part, alot of you guys are the ones I remember coming home then going home to see.
I sometimes stop by my old houses here in town and let out a sigh or two. I know where I am now but I don't forget where I came from. And if while sighing someone asks me for a jumpstart, I'll still help.
