in the interests of "political correctness", perhaps?
If you honestly want to know why The Virgin lasted here for so long, you can thank the mods trying to be overly sensitive to exact, written protocol for that. We deliberated at length in his regard, because we didn't want a sh*t storm for banning someone who didn't break a clear, written rule. Meanwhile, he got away with his stunts at the expense of the forum community.

Perhaps the mods should be trusted for their personal judgment from now on. This place would probably be better off.

It's not the mods that have the problem, it's the individuals who have the problem. We are trying to do our best to manage situations as suitably as possible. I do apologise to dirty for the late reply but life can get in the way of this place as I expect some of you might understand.

I'd be for personal judgment if I thought it could be trusted, but considering I just got banned for no reason, that's tough for me to do. I think the problem with the bold part is that SOMETIMES individual's problems are caused by the moderators, so the two are kind of intertwined. Generally I think the mods CAN be trusted, again I'm lumping everyone on one label, but then you have mods who can't seperate the rules from their general feelings towards members.

What I'm getting at is somewhere in between just personal judgement and abiding by rules guidelines is probably the best way to go.

If you lot could only get a glimpse of what you all say about each other to us mods you'd understand that we're just trying to make the best of what is sometimes total chaos.
Maybe we get it right, maybe we get it wrong, but it's YOU PEOPLE who put us in the position to having to make a judgement.

If you want stuff like this to stop try being nicer to each other and stop trying to use us mod to stab people in the back on your behalf.

Are you meaning me? I don't have a problem with you and I thought you deserved the ban as anyone else would have. You must have a memory problem because you seem to have forgotten that you do personally insult people in chat and on here.

I'm not perfect, I have received an infraction for a personal insult once, but generally you get over it and move on, try to keep it impersonal.

I do mean you. Like I said, the week ban for impersonating a mod was legit enough. I do think you completely made up the bit about receiving complaints about me. I don't know why else you have ignored my simple question about 10 times now. I don't understand how I am supposed to adjust my 'offensive' behavior if I don't know what the offensive behavior even was. Torment and bullying for race, sexuality, etc? Gimme a break.

My memory is great though, i don't think it's coincidence no regular member has chimed in about my offensive insults i apparently have spewed out numbers of times.

Also like I said, I'm not here for arguing or drama, just a clarification which you completely ignore every time it's brought up.

Pedo, thanks for the reply, also Pete for a message he sent several days ago.

Now it seems like 6 of 11 mods voted on my 30 day ban for the same reason. Which reason? Still a mystery. It seems to me like you guys don't have your shit together or aren't on the same page.

At this point I am completely confused by actually went on. I'd still like to know what the ban was for though. Hardly any progress has been made it seems. Just lemme know what I did to get banned so I don't do it again.
