Other: Abusing Mod Powers
Rdsrds2120 has been abusing his mod powers recently. I would like this to be investigated and for rdsrds2120's power-hungry status to be revoked. This is not a spurious or vindictive report, this is serious, and I would like it to be treated as such. I contacted rdsrds2120 because I was issued a 24 forum ban for comments I was previously punished for, as well as the fact that my 24 hour forum ban lasted longer than 24 hours.
I was given a 24 hour forum ban by KA approximately a week before the correspondence below. This is explained in the screenshot located in the PM.
theherkman wrote:Several things, firstly a 24 hour forum ban should be just that. Not 23 hours, not 25 hours, but 24 hours. Secondly, I was already given a 24 forum ban several days ago for those exact comments by KingA. WTF is up with this?! You have some serious explaining to do.
rdsrds2120 wrote:As for the double post, it was by mere minutes - my apologies, my internet browser accidentally submitted your ban twice.
Secondly, King Achilles had forum banned you for flaming and ratings abuse between you and caymanmew. I had for your excessive trolling in the respective thread. I stand by my decision.
If you want to avoid getting band or warnings in general, please discontinue insulting other members of the Community.
theherkman wrote:Firstly, I understand it was by mere minutes. 4:09pm and 4:10pm, yet I wasn't unbanned until just past five.
Secondly, it doesn't matter if you stand by your decision, it was wrong. In the email KA sent me, the explanation included posts from BOTH the C&A thread AND the Q&A thread.
I don't believe your actions were fair, in general.
rdsrds2120 wrote:If this is the case, then I was lacking information at the time I banned you. Based on the information I had, his forum ban was strictly inclusive of this thread and nothing more:
I had forum banned you for your trolling of caymanmew in this thread almost a week later:
If you have a screenshot of your e-mail proving that he had forum banned you for the same thing I already have, I would love to see it. Thank you.
rdsrds2120 wrote:Right, and I banned you for a different thread. Case closed.
Actually, it should have been a 72 hour as your next level up.
theherkman wrote:Do you not see where it says posts in the C&A AND the Q&A threads?
rdsrds2120 wrote:I'll ask him about it.
NOTE: This is where I become upset. I did what was asked and sent a screenshot. This apparently doesn't matter anymore and is no longer enough.
theherkman wrote:Don't bother. What are you going to do about banning me unfairly? Point is you need to check your shit before you act. You should have considered that since it happened over a week ago it might have been taken care of already, which it was.
rdsrds2120 wrote:Then this involves some other prevailing issues that the moderators have to work out. If you were really banned unfairly, I do apologize and I'll do everything in my power to see that the right course of action is taken. I shall talk to some others to see what can be done. Until then, I bid you adieu.
NOTE: Our next conversation came a few days later, where rdsrds2120 only PMs me back because I posted something about this and he saw the thread.
rdsrds2120 wrote:KingA wrote:According to my paddle action on him last Nov 4, I gave him the forum ban for his posts specifically coming from the C&A forum. You, on the other hand, banned him for his posts in the Q&A forum. That is how many times he flamed in the forums. Technically, you were still correct in giving the ban. However, to be fair for him I guess, if the forum ban was still active, I could have released it probably because all those posts were made on the same date.
That was sent to me. As I told you, I was correctly banning you - we just had a slight technicality. You've been taken care of punishment wise. Please enjoy the forums!
theherkman wrote:Well, what he said in the email explaining my ban indicated otherwise. It doesn't matter what you send me now to cover your own ass from looking like a jerk. The fact still stands that I was banned the 1st time for posts toward caymanmew (as it says in the 1st email) in 2 different threads. Regardless of what he or you have claimed, you erred. I understand that you would be too proud to admit it, and would expect as much from a 16 year old child still in high school.
rdsrds2120 wrote:The fact that you got two forum bans was in fact in error, but it was due to technical issues that it happened. I have been nothing but cordial to you and aimed to have your case resolved. I could have easily said "Screw it! I don't care if he's punished for no reason" - but no, I did the responsible thing and tried to see what I could do for you. In his e-mail, he gave no links to any specific posts. The ambiguity was there. If I would have known exactly which posts he was referring to, then I would have not banned you. I was honestly trying to see what I could get done.
Would you rather me say "Sorry - it won't happen again?" and let any mistreatment go unnoticed? I wouldn't -
theherkman wrote:What ambiguity? Did you even read the email? It said I was being banned because of flaming caymanmew in (This is where it gets good) BOTH THE C&A FORUM AND THE Q&A FORUM. Could it be any more clear? Damn!
rdsrds2120 wrote:His e-mail said for your marks in the C&A, and with some in Q&A. How was I supposed to know that they comments in Q&A were the same ones? Was I supposed to assume that in a weeks period you couldn't have posted more things ANYWHERE in Q&A that could have gotten you that? Look - this is my last reply. I did what I could to resolve the issue and thought we were clear. I'm sorry I've been unable to further clarify this - forgive me for wasting your time.
theherkman wrote:That is the biggest load of bullshit I have ever heard and you know it. First he didn't say anything about Q&A. Then it could have been some other post in Q&A? Your defense is how was I supposed to know? You have an obligation to CC to check things out before acting on them. Your ignorance is no excuse. You screwed up and are too afraid to admit it. Grow up and act your age, not your shoe size.
Then I received a pm from rdsrds2120 warning me of trolling... It was received within 5 minutes of sending this... But was in no way vindictive...
So, point is, despite evidence that rdsrds2120 had made a mistake for issuing a ban for something I was already punished for, rdsrds2120 says I was treated fairly. Because this is his version of fair, I do not believe that he is fit to have mod powers or be in any sort of power position on the forums.
