Honestly the reasons for his banning are really weak. It's interesting though as I thought the modding around here has gotten better as of late. But this is a return to the bad decisions of 08.

ATTENTION VALUED MODS - I'm recommending everyone who has posted above this message in this thread be given a 72-hour ban for stirring up trouble.

I don't see it that way. I can't speak for the other mods, since we aren't one collective being, as many see us, but I have a feeling I am not alone.


Uhh... really? All I have to say is, wicked, Twill, Night Strike, Optimus Prime, king achilles.

Actually, no, I have more to say. I consistently see people who mods dislike or even hate get banned for trivial things. I, on the other hand, am generally well-liked (or rather, I don't get on mods' bad sides), so I get away with murder on these boards all the time. I routinely call people morons and make fun of them, partially out of an intentional testing of the rules, and have rarely even been warned.

The matter of who gets banned and who doesn't is absolutely up to politics, because the rules here are NEVER fairly and universally applied. They're almost always not applied; so when they are, how can I not see it as purely out of spite, or some other ulterior motive? Why in the hell do you people think there's so little respect for the rules around here?

When I said I don't see it that way, I meant my personal view is not an 'us vs. them' mentality. Hey, half those mods you mentioned aren't even around!! But I only mod Live Chat, so I can't speak on behalf of the forums. I just come here for my own enjoyment. I can see how you would perceive some of those actions in that way however, if can always looked bias when you can't see all of the behind the scenes stuff.

I'm not really accusing you personally of anything. I was also defending my original statement that there's a long tradition of this stuff.

Live chat is heavily biased. You personally banned me for racism and yet MAT said the exact same thing that I said all day today without so much as a warning. :|

the honesty is brutal. On the other hand, I think it further strengthens certain aspects and re-affirms to all newcomers that the reputation is well earned

Actually I did not ban you for racism or you'd be on a longer vacation, but thanks for playing. Live Chat is the least biased place that is moderated. But I digress because that is not the issue at hand and there is no need to argue it.

My prediction is that if she does have the balls to dispute me; she/they will somehow try to take the focus off of it being a racist comment and try to say that I was flaming the races or something. As it stands now, she looks like a stupid

[sarcasm]My bans are always based on who I like or don't like. You piss me off in a political thread? Banned. You say the Eagles suck? Banned. You make fun of my avatar? Banned. On the other hand, if you acknowledge my superiority, worship my avatar, and lustily boo the Cowboys? You will never be banned.[/sarcasm]

I didn't ban you for flaming either :roll: I don't have to explain it to you though, because deep down, you know exactly what you did. And as much as you think you can do no wrong, you did. Live with it ;)

Again, this thread is not about your banning, soooo please, I suggest you send in an e-ticket if you feel you were wronged or drop the subject.
