Sorry, but I just don't see where he was wrong. He posted a picture of his family. In a picture thread. In the lounge. Where most spam goes.

Back a few years ago, nothing in the lounge ever led to a ban. Usually it was deleted and the member was informed.

If that has changed, I'd love to know.

What's done is done. Hindsight advice is also not considered to be very helpful, either.

I still think Frown should be de-modded (or whatever the word is for that).

Fair enough. But I don't really see why lounge posts should be a reason for a ban. It's the lounge. There's a reason it's near the bottom of the forum home page.

I modded a forum for several years. I know what the job entails. I'm just trying to offer some insight.

Though to my own credit, I did go on powertrips too. But I learned to walk past it in the end.

Plot twist: Chula is JWB and Frownland is Plankton.

Yea, it was basically the same sh*t. MB is cursed by the defiant spirit of JWB.

Rules apply to all parts of a forum.

This wasn't personal. If another member told me to **** off when I asked them to follow a rule (posting pictures of members, not just any photo that members might have), were warned about needlessly insulting people and reminded to follow the rules, then came back and said (basically) "no, **** off" and added a "ban me then," they would get the exact same treatment.

Now quit. ****ing. Whining. About. Every. Goddamned. Thing. Remember when people thought you contributed positively to the forum?

Quit being so ****ing whiny already now.
Nah, the rules only apply when you feel they apply. It's never been that way in the lounge, as far as I can remember. It's meant to be lenient here, unless there is really offensive warranting a ban. Which again, prompts me to say that you could have simply PM'd Chula, instead of making it public.

There have been several instances that were ban worthy at this foruma nd you sat back and joined in instead of being a mod. Don't suddenly come to save the day as if you're a man in shining armor.

I'm probably a lot more strict than you realize. I usually don't even ask.

As far as your advice goes, could I borrow your time machine?
