    If he was just banning users because they annoyed and him and he felt they were dumb so he associated them with a previously banned member then I would of been gone a long time ago. I'm sure he has evidence that Big was Duelist. And if those people weren't Duelist then they could just get in touch with the admins. and complain.

    As mods, it's not that hard at all to check and compare IP addresses. IP match = same user = banned again.

    Makes it waaaay harder to tell. Usually posting style ends up speaking for itself. If you get yourself banned once, you'll probably get yourself banned again soon enough through your own actions.

    & what if you don't?... You see this is the reason why I feel that Toonzone should change their banning policies, people CAN change. I know because I'm a completely different person then I was just a few years ago. I used to flame & threaten people. If I had found Toonzone back then, I'm sure I would have been banned (I'm really glad that I found this board after I learn my lesson on other message boards). Just my opinion on the subject.

    Oh & on the topic, I don't mind that Popeye is on Adult Swim.

    If a person's IP address can't be matched and they do follow the rules, then they won't be banned again because there is no way to prove they were previously banned and because they will have followed the rules.

    That'll depend on the ratings I guess.

    It seems that we might be getting classics on ASA as well because I just checked by tv schedule and it said that we would be getting the normal Saturday linup instead of a repeat of the animatrix. Then again it did show that only 30 minutes of the repeat to The Animatrix would be airing.

    So can someone explain???

    Your TV's schedule is wrong. Mine's the same way.

    I'm just a tad curious, does anyone know how The Popeye Show has performed ratings wise in the past on Cartoon Network?

    This is a good idea, if only for a short time to show viewers the cartoons our parents grew up on. I haven't watched this yet, but what is more "Adult" about The Popeye Show?

    1. The shorts are uncut (IIRC.)
    2. Some of those shorts aren't kid-friendly (requires knowledge of history/politically incorrect/etc.)
    3. It's presented History Channel-style like some of CN's other classics programs like Toonheads (IIRC.)

    It's weird, I used to watch the Popeye show all the time, so you think I would be happy it's getting some attention, but I watched it often so now I despise it. Oh well, people really should start to watch animation's roots anyway. Just because it's old doesn't mean it sucks.
