Well, how am I supposed to know that? The mods don't share that information. Why don't you highlight those posts that you have been punished for and what the punishments were. I'll remove them from the OP.
Rather than that, have him indicate which posts when, how many separate violations they gave disciplinary action for, and request that the disciplinary action be upgraded based on repeats that occurred after the first disciplinary action and continued repeats after the last disciplinary date. After all, repeated violations - even violating something different that is not technically a repeat - are supposed to incur higher and higher disciplinary actions.
For whoever said Woodruff was a schoolteacher... wow, that is illuminating. It sheds light on what's wrong with our educational system. "It's okay because I'm not in class," is hardly an upstanding example. Unless your class is, "How to be vitriolic and abusive in public."
On the other hand, I once posted a report on someone for using, "fucking retard," and the report was rejected.
Finally, there are those who mention that some are "easily offended." I can be, but am not always easily offended. My problem with saying things like that is, it puts the onus on the listener rather than the onus on the speaker. While the US and other (not every, but some other) countries grant citizens the "right to free speech," that right still has some limitations.
Some are ethical, some are based on political correctness (or lack thereof) - for example, if anyone on CC has even a trace of Down's Syndrome, then the use of "fucking retard," takes on a new dimension, punishable by various acts that have been passed to protect the mentally disabled; making it not just a nuisance nastiness, but a criminal act to use that wording.
As another example, yelling, "Fire!" - while in itself, not offensive at all, is deemed unacceptable practice especially in crowded places. Again, the onus is on the speaker rather than the listener to exhibit some self-discipline.
Disciplinary actions sometimes have to take place when a person displays a lack of self discipline.
Clearly, the number of sample posts reflect a lack of self discipline.
So... just imagine what his students are learning from him!
