Look out, Terry!! Comments like that might get you black-banned!! ;-P

"black-banned"!! Can we still say that now-a-days?? ;-)

I think the phrase you were going for is "black-balled."

You're probably right, Ed, but in general usage there is also "black-banned"

(If my typing has just gone a bit wonky, please excuse me, but I've just suffered a whole-house/whole-suburb power-failure!!)

Sounds like Australia-only to me. Never heard or saw that phrase until you used it.

Ditto. Never heard it before.  Oh well, two countries separated by a common language!  :-D

Black-balled and Black-banned in fairly common usage here in Aus!! I wonder if it might be an Eng-U.S. thing!

Seems to be Australian ...


O.K., last night, I just checked wikipedia and it had no mention of black ban.
