The starred commenter's are just a bunch of "good ol' boys". They ban people for just disagreeing with one of their buddies or if someone says something that one of their friends doesn't like. It's pretty sad if you ask me. But hey, that's just the way it looks from here. Gotta go, I'm sure the "BANHAMMER" will be dropping soon.
