    its called "as the flame flickers" and its based off of the firehouse.com forums. i hear it's gonna be a good one.

    Ok, here's what I don't understand...

    All this happened in the Apparatus Innovation Forum!?

    What's up with that? It is usually so empty you could strip a Tower Ladder down to the frame and there wouldn't be any witnesses...

    We fire truck geeks get pretty passionate, I guess. I somehow dodged a bullet on the thread in question, as I was involved in dealing with the individual that caused the ruckus, but I think I somehow restrained myself from submitting some nastiness. Trust me, some stuff was typed in but I never clicked the "submit" button.

    There were quite a few suspended from the forums for a while due to that thread. The sad thing is, had we nipped it in the bud and had the WT deal with the offender, things would probably have never escalated the way they did.

    Everyone here is entitled to an opinion, but when that opinion becomes filled with hate based on ethnicity or culture, well that crosses the line. That's where things started getting bad, and everything started swirling in the proverbial toilet bowl we call the forums from there.

    Good to see Captain Gonzo is back. I look forward to when everyone is back, if they aren't already.

    You hit the nail on the head. Sometimes that is the wisest thing to do. Those in these forums who may also have some law enforcement background are trained that once you pull the trigger there isn't any calling the bullet back. The same applies to the "submit" button. Before you click it, make sure the post is going to hit what your aiming at because once you click it there is no stopping it. )

    Folks

    We rarely, if ever, will discuss publicly why anyone was banned. It happens, it will continue to happen, and as has been said, whether you are on post 1 or 10,000, if you cross the line, you will be banned.

    This thread is closed and as we've said in the past, discussions about why X was banned and posts like that when found in the future will be deleted. Talk about the topics, not the forums.

    Thanks
