Toadman: Holy Crap ... D's gonna start putting people on ice (code for "killing", of course ... maybe he enjoys that?) ... better watch my p's and q's... and any other letter that might get banned!
DFO: Not to worry, Toad; indeed, I put two regulars on ice in the last two weeks. But you have to work hard over an extended period of time, fail to heed warnings, and generally be asking for trouble to get nailed with a long-term or permanent ban. When I refer to the cooler in most instances, it means a cooling off period of a day or somewhat longer, until the commenter figures out who's running this thing. You've been around here long enough to know I don't toss someone in the cooler arbitrarily.
