Re: Deleting My Account

Could someone please post a link to the post explaining why Rufus was banned? I don't recall seeing it, and I haven't been able to track it down from searching for it. I know people have speculated about why Rufus was banned, but would like to see the reason given by the mod team, if it was posted somewhere.

Just click on Rufus name in any post and then click on public profile.

Re: Deleting My Account

Thank you Marton. I didn't know that was there, and am sure that'll likely be useful to know how to do in future, too.


For anyone else who might find it useful, it's here, and doesn't explain what prompted the banning, as plenty of people edit their posts, and don't get banned, so why was RufusB banned for doing that? It isn't clear for me.

Re: Deleting My Account

Pls just stop. Take it to PM with LiB or any Mod and maybe they will answer your question. You can find the answer upthread if you really want to find it. You obviously spend enough time here. Even a "noob" does not need to be spoon fed all the details of how things work on EF... if "noob" you truly are.

My guess is troll...

You always set a good example of quoting the posts that you are replying to. Without this simple expedient we do not know if such posts were altered before, or after, or indeed significantly altered at all.

<insert random stuff one may allege the "quoted" poster wrote. Or alter the original text above.>
Thank you.

It's all based on sincerity and trust anyway, even when quoting, as this simple example shows. Having a history of versions for each post might help, but would mods actually want to play detective? And even if, it doesn't really seem worth the effort.

Re: Deleting My Account

People pay for a telco service 100chf per month, something is wrong, you try to call them and you end up 3-4wks waiting for a reply...

But, you join a forum where people know each other for 10y and more and you start throwing tantrums because you consider how they need to give you a report

I recon she kicks out all the mods and she becomes the only Mod

Re: Deleting My Account

I have a feeling that RufusB probably doesn't really care too much about her temporary ban from the EF anyways. She wasn't on here that often in the first place (she maybe popped in quickly once per week or so, it seems). And she had already expressed how frustrated she was with this forum, anyways. So maybe we just need to let it be.

Re: Deleting My Account

I sincerely hope that LiB, who has shown minimum activity for years, does not feel empowered to mod according to his own political beliefs and attitudes. His closing of the Trump thread and now banning RufusB May suggest an empowerment not felt previously.

Would LiB have banned RufusB if that situation had happened to another poster?

Nobody cares. Rufus has not suffered a life changing injury.

The bigger question is how she was able to rejoin after receiving a permanent ban the same day with another user name. My only ever ban was because I pointed this out & did not accept the edited version of the truth.

Perhaps this explains why I have not made an issue over the temporary ban

In a previous incarnation, Paxti did a similar thing to me, so at I believe you.
