I tend to appreciate Dr. Bob's discretion in not discussing poster actions. I would be rather unhappy about seeing anything I did that long ago discussed by Dr. Bob on the Admin board. And Dr. Bob really can't give reasons in any specific instance without doing that, can he?
There are always the archives, if anyone wishes to look it up. Civility rules should of course be followed in any ensuing discussion.
I'm absolutely certain Dr. Bob only calls the police in limited circumstances, which would not include name calling, or discussion of the illegal use of drugs. How many times has the discussion of the police being called come up? Clearly not as often as names are called, or illegal drug use is discussed.
On the other hand, I imagine if outside parties seized your computer and discovered your posting name (or otherwise linked you with your posting name on this site), anything you posted would be fair game in any legal inquiries, depending on a judge's ruling. Or maybe I've watched too much TV.
