Amber, I certainly don't think you should be banned, but I wish you would try to be a bit less strident at times. Very often I find myself reading your posts and saying to myself - GOOD! WELL WRITTEN!! I AGREE!!!
However, then you go on to end the post by making a personal attack or some arrogant statement that takes all the heat and momentum out of your post (see your comments about Libertarians).
Try to disagree without being disagreeable. As for AW, I like him. Amusing fellow, but we all have a pretty good idea where he's coming from at this point. No surprises from that quarter.
