    No need to apologise guys. I must admit I found some of his comments funny too due to how silly they were. I initially argued back with him too which didn't help matters. I don't mind members who have a bit of a joke though he went over the line in one or two posts and I really can't let that kind of thing slide.

    @BHRobin - I'll definitely be helping any members who help with moderation with guidelines etc :)

    @Endiku - I totally understand what you mean. I browse Sherdog every now and then and when a troll posts inflammatory comments the response is usually 'good effort'. I run MMA Forums and although the forum has little activity so far, I suspect it will have more people trying to take the piss etc. I think aggressive comments towards other members is rarely welcome on any forum though.

    @RJ - I was going to just message him privately first and ask him to tone his aggressive behaviour on the forums. He then made this post and this post - in my opinion he crossed the line. There comes a point where moderation won't really help as the member doesn't care about being part of the community.

    So far Ben and Blade Maker have put their names forward and Wondering Fist, SifuPhil and Deborah have also been suggested. I'd still like to stick with two moderators for the time being and then bring another one in as the forum grows.

    Thanks for everyone for providing feedback on this :)

    Wow, I'd only seen a limited amount of his posts. They weren't completely unhinged as those you linked. Perfectly understandable why he was banned.

    I thank all the people that suggested me ("You love me! Your really love me!" :D) but Kevin, I'm afraid with my schedule right now I wouldn't be able to do justice to the position. I put my vote in for Ben and Blade.

    Where is this Derek from.I do not think that he is a martial artist.He just might be some hoodlum that just got on here to stir something up.Obviously he is NOT one of us.lol

    All those suggested would be good, depending on who could do it.

    While I respect, and admire, those who called for Derek to get another chance, I would say no. I look at it this way: If a child acted like Derek did in our class, he would be pulled aside, talked to, and his parents would be told that he was on thin ice if not kicked out. For youth, you can be a little nicer sometimes, everyone needs to grow up and make mistakes. But an adult, as Derek supposedly was? First time he challenged someone to a fight in an argument - even one that got heated - that would be it, gone, turn in belt and don't let the door hit ya where the Good Lord split ya. That attitude violates pretty much everything that martial arts should be.

    Derek may be an awesome fighter, and while I sincerely doubt he's done as much as he claimed and invented, it's still possible he's done more than I have. Hell, he's probably a better fighter than I am. But he is an abysmal martial artist and IMHO not much better as a human being. I only hope we caught him on a bad day and he's not this awful in real life.

    Um, just to be clear...I am not an instructor. I am an instructor trainee and hope to test for full instructor in about half a year or so, but if I gave an aura of 'here's how >I< would have done it in >MY< class' I was wrong. I do think, though, that this is how things would happen in our class with our instructor should something like that happen.

    We now continue with our regular broadcast...;)
