How about some real forum issues! How about this one. I visit
this site about 3 times a week...and everytime i visit i see some
thread about how one guy writes something harmless and then
a moderator comes out of nowhere...and disagrees with some guy
and when he doesnt feel like arguing he threatens to ban the guy.
Dont get me wrong...ive read alot of threads that should be deleted
or the user should be banned....but its seems like the moderators
are just attacking guys cause they dont agree with what they write
about. Ban me if u want...youll just be proving my point.
Dude, there's been many a thread about this and recieved the brutal truth already. Why the fuck do you have to drag it back out? If you want to hear that we think it's ok to have a childish platform to post in, it ain't going to happen! There's hundreds of other forums out there that allow flame wars, but it's not in this domain.
And I DARE you to point where this actually happened the way you are recalling it. We don't ban on one account and never have. You probably don't read every single post like we do and see these people that go out of their way to say "fuck you asshat, I build great systems with super glue and duct tape. You are fuxoring butt munch". Yup, they get banned. We just don't want their type as it dumbs the entire place down. If they'd just stay in the LL, that's one thing. But when they come out into the intellectual threads and still post like that...well, it's when they get noticed. I'd even bet that if those that get banned drop a simple e-mail to one of us with the words "I appologize" somewhere in it, the doors would open back up for them. That they don't just shows that they don't to be here anyway. We did them a favor.
Again, with all the [PC] members that we have, as a coven we see each individual's post over and over again then make a decision. Because you see a post or two doesn't mean that he/she was banned due to those alone.
I'll be the first one to say to counterpoint me as much as you want in any thread, but when it comes to "Fuck you prick", the conversation is over and a warning is issued. And it's not just the [PC] that you can't talk shit to. In fact, the last person banned was talking shit to ShftyGoat who is the bane of exsistance to certain mods...I still can't find anyone that has been banned because they disagreed with a mod or [PC] member.
All in all, this is a club...you can't bring a naked and drooling bum into a golf course clubhouse can you? We don't keep the rent high here, we just maintain that you have to follow the small list of rules we have.
And I'm sick and fucking tired of defending them. Look at all the time I've wasted on these couple posts to folks trying to explain that it isn't bad.
