Re: Need some simple clarification on why I was banned from any decent mod.

We look betta ...for now...

Anyways, we act and we are called judgmental. We take time to inhale info and not rush into stuff, especially when there isn't enough info, and we still catch flak for being slackasses..It's ok, it's part of the game, I don't harp. Learning curve....Besides, actually I am used to it.

If what you needed is clarification from a mod on your ban, why wouldn't you simply ask the mods themselves via PM? They are, after all, the ones whose opinions and explanations you are seeking, right?

It would seem that to ask the question by posting the thread for the entire forum to view could (would/should) be interpreted as a way of trolling in and of itself. Why wouldn't you ask for a private explanation prior to setting upon publicizing your views regarding mod fairness and collusion?

So congratulations, it seems that you have indeed "stirred the pot" quite effectively. Probably not a great way to get a mod in the future to take the time to consider your side of the story, should another questionable situation arise. How ironic is that, given that you started the whole thread by insinuating a lack of mod impartiality?
If some of the mods don't have integrity in the first place then wasting time on them would be pointless. My thread was to try and bring attention of any decent mod who does not have God complex. I made a post with the C word on a thread that was ACTUALLY about offensive words. It was not an attack on anyone! I was not banned for that. That post was made long time before. It is being used to cover up the real reason.

I bet Mathnut, Douglas Breakfast and Economisto are some kind of wannabe Christians. Maybe related to each other too by the sounds of it. The reason they banned me was because my non religious posts on the religion thread got on their tits and because I dared to wind up D.Breakfast by sending a private message about the red card he handed me.

I have made my point so I am done. Regulars can mock me and back slap each other as much as they want to look cool but that is not going to change what actually happened.

I think you'd need to do a lot more to get yourself a ban, feel free to say what you think. All opinions welcomed, although some are much more deluded.

Aye but dont ask where to get that hash from in Basel eh!
Dammit, I thought for sure that would have pissed someone off. Now I have to try harder.

If I understand you correctly, you did not even give the mods a chance to respond in private to your questions about the ban, its circumstances, and its timing in relation to the offensive language thread.

Your implication is that you had already made up your mind about the conspiracy surrounding your ban prior to this thread, anyway. One can then only assume in that case that your purpose in posting the thread was to make waves.

We all know to what intentional wave-making equates.

I'm personally offended that most of you find the "c-word" the most offensive in the English language.
And that's it - it's the "most of you" that's the point. We moderate, not as a democracy, but in (what we perceive as) the interests of most of the people, most of the time.

I was never warned or got a single PM from any mod in the time I have been here. So yes the ban was out of the blue as far as I am concerned. Neither did I get any warning for using an offensive word on the offensive words thread

The other thing is that I did not use the word on anyone ie. I did not call someone a K. It was a light hearted post so I like how it is being turned into as if I was attacking someone with that word in an argument.

Fact is I got banned few minutes after replying to Douglas Breakfast on the religion thread and after sending a reply via PM to his red card.
Who did I get banned by? Economisto, the other guy who did not like my views with regard to God on the religion thread.

My question is why is Mathnut going out of the way to cloud the actual reason why I was banned? You can all lie to look good but DB, Economist and Mathnut you should know that Jesus is watching and knows all lol
You think I banned you because I didn't like your views on a thread

Buddy, I can't for the life of me remember what they were. You were banned because you're generally irritating (not to me you understand, but to most of the people, most of the time) and you decided to get around our word filter by modifying an offensive word. We (again, not me) don't want offensive words on our forum. Thanks for listening. And I'm sorry you took a 2 day ban so hard.

It's too bad you take things so personally. If things were as corrupt as it seems to you, there wouldn't be more than one mod involved. I am a mod and tried to explain, 99% of the times, it's a team effort, multi-step, more info taken in and in interest of the community. You asked for other mod's involvement, and now you have a couple explaining, yet still continue to disagree. It's ok, it's your right, and it is good to actually have the time to explain. But don't flame people on personal level, it's kinda uncool..

Now, what did you say about mods being gods? Whhhhaaaaaa????



That's more the truthz.

Now, don't pout no mo. Wear that badge with a pride, seriously. So you are one bad as# coz you dared to say the C word. Rebel.

All I am saying is that as far as I can tell, S&R was aggravated at how his ban was handled, and he has formulated his own theory about why it took place, basing that theory at least in part upon a perceived bias on the part of some mods/member against his lack of religious belief, among other things. I believe that prior to a public assertion that mods and members are working together to ban him, he should have begun with actually asking the mods about the reasoning for the ban if he could not make sense of the information he had been offered, rather than posting an open-forum thread for all to see. In my view, the posting of a thread which asks for clarification on the ban (information that only mods can give in the first place) then following it with all the details he offered seems purposefully inflammatory.
