Trainlawyer has been banned from this forum for inaccurate and false information.
David, I'm a fan of your forum but the you're inconcisent with your ruling here. I enjoy reading these often, but this has ticked me off and I need to air it out.
First of all, if you're gonna ban him for false info, fine. But a certain someone else has been much worse and yet he still is on the forums, and even defended by you.
Said individual (who I will not name but you could figure out probably) has been spreading very inaccurate info for years. It first comes up with these "sand trains" that seems to be a fantasy with no basis whatsoever, as well as his "sources" indicating C&D not taking over the lines and not only doubling down but tripling down on that statement. All of his lies are from his "sources" which he does not have.
I cannot forget, he was trash talking C&D nonstop so much that Kean had to come on to assure them everything going on. Those stuff alone would be bannable for everywhere else. To add, he also has come on these forums bashing the crews on the conrail trains.
Lastly, many crewman have complained nonstop about what said person has done around the lines for all of their habits including trespassing and giving the crews ZERO privacy filming them everywhere. Stuff like this is a big reason why the railfan community gets such a bad rep. Nobody likes armchair railroaders who thinks they know everything, like this individual does.
Overall, You just can't get rid of trainlawyer for some misinfo, but completely just be OK with all of this happening. Something needs to be done to save the forums reputation since they are not good right now.
Please, be more consistent when it comes to ruling like this. The forums have lost credibility from this person. Thank you.
