Just got here.  Just got suspeneded (from posting) at the other place after posting that Kelly T. had a lesbian accent.

I would never say that here, but would like to know if this kind of thing gets you banned/suspended on this site.

Welcome to TST
I'm not a Moderator, but sensitive comments such as you mentioned may receive a warning.
This site is the best golf forum around hands down. Basically the members are expected to be adults.
Here is the background about the community of TST.

The Sand Trap .com began in mid-2004 when Erik J. Barzeski (@iacas) and a few friends, all golf nuts, wanted a place of our own to talk about golf - to share opinions, to review courses and equipment, and to chat amongst ourselves and like-minded folks.

Thanks.  I  don't post childish stuff.

Sometimes biting humor, but never obscene/profane.

I leave that to verbal utterances after hitting shots on the golf course.

Welcome!

Probably would take a bit more than a "lesbian accent" comment to be banned around here. If I had to summarize what I've seen so far, the folks banned are ones that don't let a certain issue go. They'll come back to it over and over, even long after it's obvious the discussion isn't going anywhere.

Some good info there. As I recall, somewhere around here it says that our standard boils down to just "don't be a jerk." 

One little comment probably wouldn't do it, particularly if in jest and maybe a bit "off color." We had one guy who denigrated like 3 different ethnic groups in one flame post, we hid it because it was not in jest, it reflected poorly on our site discussions.  And even from there, it even took a bunch of "freedom of expression" arguments to cut that guy off for good. He just wouldn't let it go that he couldn't express his opinion that one ethnic group was a bunch of [insert your bad trait here].

Anyway, welcome! Good to see you jumping right in.

On this golf forum, a comment about about someone's sexual orientation would probably need some factual back up, would be my guess.

I'd be inclined to ignore it, but if it was evidence in a pattern of childish shit, to care about it at that point.

Hmmmm.... Is it me, or you just did? Whatever you think (and whether true or not), it's not cool so say that. Respect people, all people. I hope you get it and wise up. If so, welcome here. If not, get lost...

First of all, welcome to the site.

And on the lighter side: That's exactly what I was thinking.  You won't say it here, but you just did. :hmm:

    • 40-60 year old golfers, do I have a project for you! I was once-upon-a-time gifted a set of Founders Club forged blades, 2-PW. If I told you they had minimal wear, that would be an understatement. I hit two shots with the 2iron just because I had two. Otherwise, 7i to PW has maybe five shots of wear on the face. But that's besides the point.  When I was a 15 year old I had my first set of Ping Eye 2 and for.the life of me remember having Langert woods. Does anyone have a lead on a Langert Driver and 3 Wood? Particularly with a shaft I can only remember as being labeled the "Brush Stroke" shaft...  I could be totally wrong being that I do remember have a Founders Club driver back on those days  However I'm 95% certain it was a Langert head, with the "paint stroke" graphics on the shaft. If you happen to know of this club and live in the LA area, I'd love to buy it off you, after which I'll invite you to play at the club where I work and kick you butt with some 1990s ancient club technology...   Thank you.    Ben. 
    • Your hands move out and up rather than tracing inward. That’s all. A little of that is fine. You’re bordering on a bit too much IMO.  As I noted it does help you loop it back to the inside on the downswing.
    • As a 20 I agree.  I'm 66 and still want to lower that number, bought the book and this winter (starting next week) am going to practice and get a few more yards on my full swing shots. My short game and putting are not going to get much better or better enough to give me 5 strokes. Maybe I have drunk the cool-aid , but I have seen that GIR is a way better place to lower my score. Th alternative is ok-play for GIR +1-and live with 91-95. Its closer to par than 102  
    • Unless they are bringing in hazards, OB, that is the proper strategy to achieve that goal. Being as close to the hole as possible on each shot without penalty will help greatly in breaking 90.    No offense but I think ‘ realistic’ could be replaced with ‘ easier.’ If you think you have the ability to improve your distance then that is the best way to start breaking 90 unless you have a glaring weakness with your short game. Which doesn’t appear to be the your case if you struggle to reach most par fours in regulation due to distance.
    • vote was yes. My guess is that the non alcoholics all voted no. Drunk driving laws are like locks...they work for honest folks. If I drink, I will probably drink and drive...so I have stopped drinking. Once I black out all bets are off.
