This will be the last post I make on this subject; after this, either get back on subject, or I'll lock the thread.
TGFB has always been, and always will be, a privately-owned messageboard. We're not run by the government, so we don't have to give you a platform to speak your mind. Any time you make a post, you're opening yourself up to the whims of the moderators -- and if you say something that either Sechs, Rags, ID, or I don't approve of (for whatever reason), we reserve the right to smack you upside the head with the banhammer.
A permaban for a minor offense does strike me as going overboard with punishment -- and I'll use this moment to ask Sechs, Rags, and ID to avoid using permabans for every infraction in the future -- but we're the admins, and we make the rules around here. One of the rules says we'll ban you if we don't like you; if you don't approve of it, Lulz will be glad to host your bitching about how we run TGFB, but at least keep in mind what such bitching will accomplish (nothing).
I don't always agree with Sechs, and I don't particularly approve of PERMABANS EVERYWHERE -- but Sechs and I know how we want this site run, and for the most part, we're running it how we wanted to run it from the start.
We're not "the furry 4chan" (despite the board list saying otherwise), and we don't want a super-busy board. TGFB exists to give Sechs, myself, and people we're friendly with a stable website we can use to shoot the shit and share pictures we think others would want to see.
I wouldn't mind a few more drawfriends and writefriends around here, but beyond that singular desire, I don't want anything more for TGFB than what we have right now.
