Late to this thread :oops:

I've been banned from 3.

The Linn forum, he heh apparently because I was insulting to some dealers even though I was soundly abused by them for having the temerity to produce alternative parts and have differing views to the official line.

pfm - mainly because Tony L is a tit of the highest order. I've also been banned from Lejonklou - another Linn arse lickers forum for those unfamiliar.

I don't much post on AOS or WW even though a member for many years. My main forums are here at HFS and TCN - oh and also Lenco Heaven.

There used to be a poll with this thread. It's disappeared. Can't find a way to get it back again. It's hardly worth creating a new poll for something so unimportant.

The average number of bannings will be higher now than it was in 2014.

I've jumped from 0 bans to 1, thanks to Duvet banning me from Wigwam for - as far as I can tell - my active membership on this forum, as opposed to anything I've actually ever said or done that was in breach of any Wigwam rules.

None! If you don't join them they can't ban you. :lol:
To be honest, if I did (or do) ever get banned from a forum I'd probably be rather embarrassed and I certainly wouldn't think of it as something to brag about.

If I was not banned from spamwam there would be something wrong with me. Pleased I had the fluffy one tearing his hair out during Salford. :grin:
