    Who'd have believed that I get banned from a forum!

    Not this one - well not for a few years anyway!

    So like the prodigal son - can I come back and play on here please.

    I know I left the fold and went out to play with some new friends but I'm now back with my tail between my legs

    Can we setup a Raspberry Pi section?

    Can I moderate it so I can ban someone myself?

    Might have told the Raspberry Pi Foundation that they weren't doing their job properly maybe?
    It could have have been (mis)interpreted that way I suppose.
    Hard to imagine anyone taking offence at what I say - eh?

    I am currently banned from a local forum for disproving somthing that the owner of the site posted. He was saying some derogative things about school and I corrected him, then he banned me.

    On another forum that I'm a member of, it used to be a sport to register at the OCUK forums and see how quickly you could get yourself banned.

    It's very easy to do apparently

    That sounds very much like Fylde College bar at Lancaster University in the early 80s. If you hadn't been banned at least once by Ron, the barman, you hadn't been there. There was some very competitive boasting as to exactly how many times some people had been banned... That's properly banned and not thrown out because you had previously been banned; Ron could be relied on to forget he had banned you after a few weeks.
