In the past, it's usually gone something like this:

Be profane and/or launch insults at other members.
Ignore warnings.
Get a temporary suspension.
Do it all over again.
Ignore more warnings.
Continue arguing and insulting people.
Be a troll and bait your enemies.
Respond to the next warning by telling one of the admins to "lighten up", how it was "all a joke" and "in good fun" and how everybody is "way too serious."
Continue arguing, insulting, and baiting.
Respond to the final warning by telling the admins to "**** off", "kiss my ***", or "go to ****."
Get banned.
Send an email to the webmaster or through friends posting about how your popularity and helpfulness over the years gives you right to act like a total ******* (several expressions fit those 7 letters - any are appropriate) and that we've been totally unfair. Also be sure to complain about how some other user deserves the same or equal punishment because they're just as bad. At this point, people usually take one of two paths - either turn into a bratty 5 year old and throw a fit about how life is unfair, or act like one of those irresponsible 20-somethings that give you the "aw shucks it won't happen again just give me another chance" routine.

LOL @ Kreisler... laugh I've lived through that exactly from Franks position (as an admin). It's impressive that most people go through pretty much the same story! grin...

Other than that I would imagine that stretching the rules wouldn't be too nice either! (can you imagine someone continuously posting a 'competitive' website?... Difficult really. I mean, yeah, you probably can do it a couple of times, probably with the tollerance of the admins/mods but continuously? Yikes!)

I have to say that PW is quite light in terms of banning though. I've seen MUCH worst!

I would bet that when you say that, you are thinking of just a few you liked, instead of the whole bunch of them. To me, banning just makes sense, and if people can't behave after sufficient warnings, well, tough. I've seen how it goes in forums where nobody gets banned, and it is not worth it, IMO. There are always some sociopaths trying wreck the place, basically, and sometimes they succeed.

Definitely miss Janus, sotto voce, Fleeting Visions.

FWIW, PW is a great community, and I keep coming back for the warmth, intelligence, and spunkiness of many awesome members, as much as (if not more than) for the actual talking points. There are many here I'd love to buy a beer.

*Cheers*

Nasty complications with sotto voce (I'm now over that), but -as posted earlier- I do miss Fleeting Visions. Neat guy, incredibly intelligent, and great octaves. Wonder what he is up to these days.

Janus is another situation. We got along so well -many great PMs- but he turned against me when he found out that I didn't worship at the altar of Mahler. Okay to dislike Bach or Mozart, but Mahler? A sin for which I should rot in helll. (Does any other composer inspire such a messianic devotion?)

Thanks to the 'other' Jason I have since changed my views -I LOVE the 6th symphony- but Janus never forgave me for the transgression.

Wow, interesting guy that Fleeting Visions. I just checked out some of his last posts and apparently he started a PhD program in biophysics at age 18 or 19 and then was on a year's medical leave of absence. While working on his PhD he was also studying with a piano performance professor.

In my opinion there's no excuse for cyberbullying, no matter how helpful or popular you are. There is a line between being frank and simply being mean, and people who get banned here cross that line.

He came in here with a machine gun and killed 4 or 5 posters so we had to let him go.

I believe he was involved in some verbal bullying jousting, told a moderator to muck off, got banned, came back as chercherchopin, was found out, told everyone to suck it, and then was summarily executed.

How 'bout me? Nary a mention. Maybe because I'm only near dead. I still post about once every two weeks. Four five years ago I was writing lengthy posts twice a week, and two sentence comments twice a day.

Be nice to be mentioned amongst the dead, even if I'm not quite there yet. I don' even know who half these people are who are so missed.

Good to know I was missed! I ended up taking a break from most things computer for part of the summer. Went through a pretty nasty breakup, so it was a very welcome change of pace. Took some summer classes, spent a lot of time in the practice rooms. Soul searching, reading a lot of new music, you know the usual fun things.

Aww sick, you're back!! Glad to see that you're learning Pagodes (a PHENOMENAL PIECE). I'm planning to learn the rest of the Estampes set this fall!

Ditto on both.

I was just wondering about Canonie just a few days ago. Looks like the last time she checked in here was 25 July. I hope her new piano is the happy reason for her absence.

Yes, it would not be Canonie's first self-imposed extended absence. Probably went back to nature for a while... Maybe hand harvesting tea leaves or something... smile

I still miss Sotto. KBK just struck me as strange, belligerent, and weirdly tedious. His "instructional videos" did nothing to lessen this impression.
