never been perma-banned from anything, but me and another guy were once banned for a week once for talking about computer games in GW, kinda pointless since I only used to go once a fortnight.

That's rather odd, freedom of speech and all that. You can talk about anything you wish doesn't give them the right to ban you.

I thought you are in the UK, your flag is for Scotland. The UK does not have freedom of speech, there are a lot of laws that limit what you can say. The UK is so restrictive now that people from other countries are coming here to use the British laws to sue people for libel.

Also, in the UK at least, a shop manager can ban anyone at any time for any reason or no reason. They are not obliged to allow anyone onto the premises that they don't like, and can sue for trespass if someone that has been banned enters the store. The only exception is if the reason for the banning is to do with race or sexuality.

All that is important is known.

Never seen anyone get banned myself. Just lucky that in Solihull that we got no idiots that do stupid things.

Also how thick was that robber to come back to the scene of the crime!

It's amazing how difficult it is to get banned at the local store I play at. I've seen grown men throw screaming tantrums, another throw dice at an opponent's head, and more cheaters than I can remember. Regardless, the only ones to ever get permanently banned are the thieves. .

To her credit I had to read this particular sentence three times before it clicked.

Anyway, I have a friend who is fairly good with his tau and space marines who gives his brother dice he doesn't want after a lost assault or shooting phase, by throwing them as hard as he can at his brother's head.

He wasn't banned but a guy I was playing picked up my converted, painted took-five-hours-to-build runepriest and threw it across the room which fucking obliterated the fucking model.

Now I'm a pacifist, but something in me clicked and I fucking dropped the asshole with a punch to the face...I might of broke his nose but idk. I was told that I was going to be banned then I told the manager the story and he just made me leave for five hours to "cool-down" but my friend told me after I left it was so that they could get the kid up and out of the store and to a doctor.

no such thing as freedom of speech in any country, just the illusion of freedom of speech.

and its quite regular from my GW experiences, that was the most extreme case, but I know allot of GW stores that I've been to don't allow it, or frown upon it, they don't seem to like the fact a world exists outside there doors.

and I know soemone is gonna stick up for them and go "well its only fair you can't talk about none GW products in a GW, its promoting other products", but since I can talk about warhammer in ASDA, or Game, or gamestation or anywhere I like, then your wrong..
