I have been banned from a certain "Advocate" for reasons Iím still trying to figure out, I think I know why, but even that would have been a minor infraction. I have been a member since Jan. 06í(with no issues by the way), had almost 550 beers rated (which takes awhile), tons of information and "BAM" with no warning, I was just "Banned". Tried emailing to explain the situation with no response in return.......I am now considered an outcast.

But hey, I found ratebeer and want to start anew. Iíll have alot of beers to rate again, with a different system of grading I see and an opportunity to glean new information from people.
Thanks for being here.

I havenít been banned yet, but Iíve had threads deleted because I bumped an ISO and then threaten banishment, while I see people bumping their ISO all the time. I prefer the forums here so much more. If it wasnít for a few regular traders on that site, I wouldnít use it.

Welcome to the revolution aka a place where people love to talk about beer as much as they love to drink beer.

They did you a favor. Welcome to the best beer site on the interwebs. Sit back, relax, and have a beer. Pony up for preemie and enjoy the craziness of the OT forums.

I was banned a little while ago and I couldnít be happier to be a part of the RB community. Plenty of excellent traders here.
