Why am I banned?

If one goes to a pub, is disruptive, and told 'If you continue that 
behaviour, you'll be banned for life' then goes on right ahead and 
continues the behaviour... EVEN IF IT'S ON THE WAY OUT THE DOOR... the 
establishment has every right to ban that person for life as they have 
demonstrated clearly their contempt for the rules laid down by the 

It's not rocket surgery.

Every IRC channel has limits. The most basic is; what Ops say goes, 
annoy the crap out of an Op at one's own peril. If an op says 'stop or 
I'll ban'... STOP. IRL, if a policeman says 'stop or I'll arrest' one 
doesn't keep on going doing whatever's pissed the copper off, then cry 
at the courts later 'oh it's sooo unfair it was only a little I 
continued to do but I never knew I'd be arrested'... to coin a gaming 
phrase .... srsly.

For the record, I was the person referred in Felipe's mail as 'annoyed 
by PM'. Correct, I don't appreciate uninvited PM. Others may do, I don't.


P.S. Apologies for lack of threading, I'm on digest and too lazy to 
thread back in properly.
