Ha, I got banned

Postby eric84 » Sun Nov 24, 2013 10:17 pm

Well, that was kinda funny. I apparently revealed some super secret information (no not really) so I amended the post to take an identifying info. It was then subsequently torched and I got banned. Mistifying

We have always shied away from publicly announcing bannings and reasons why. That's between the mods and the poster in question, the goal being to encourage them to not misbehave anymore. We didn't tell the board that you were banned for a day, let alone why. But as a former mod you should know what not to do. So because you asked publicly and seem to want to stir the pot in this thread, here's why action was taken and what you should learn from it:

- If your post gets sagged, don't double down and post exactly the same thing again. You know better than that. Then don't post it a third time, slightly sanitized, after we warned you and deleted the second post.

- Even though you're not a mod, you were revealing non-public information about past board actions against another poster. Are you "allowed" to do that? Well, we didn't publicize it for a reason so it's not cool for you to use it to score your own brownie points against a poster you clearly don't like.

- That poster wasn't even mentioned in the thread until you mentioned him and how many times the mods had taken action against him.

So... you used normally private information you gleaned as a mod specifically to feud with another poster in an unrelated post. And you got a time-out for doing so.

I 'slightly santized' the post? I did it to address your specific objection to ensure that this wasn't intended to attack another poster but to provide needed information to another poster about warnings and how it may or may not lead to bannings......and yet you still deleted it and the banned me.

Your actions look completely arbitrary and suggests you did to me for other reasons. In your words, not cool

There's no need for you to teach any lessons to anyone based on the non-public knowledge you gleaned while you were a moderator.

Anyway, your time-out is done and you've learned the reasons why, as requested, so I assume you have the information you need going forward. That's what short time-outs are for.

FWIW *I* didn't pull the trigger but several of us agreed.

Ah, so you didn't know the circumstances of the banning but agreed with it. Alright then. Maybe the mod in question will own up to it and explain his reasoning

I know the circumstances and agreed with it.

It's funny that you've turned into such a rebel, as evidenced by your gleeful OP title, "Ha, I got banned". And at the same time you want me to recount every rule and ordinance that led to your one-day time out.

Let me simplify. You posted something. We deleted it. You reposted. Twice. The obvious next best way for us to stop you reposting the same thing over and over when we've told you not to is to temporarily remove your ability to post with a time-out.

We've done this before to others, while you were a mod. You shouldn't be surprised.

Just accept it - and anyway, the time-out is over.

You keep avoiding the fact that I changed the post in question to address the objection to which makes the decision to ban me so puzzling. It's in the funeral home, so why don't you review it and tell me what you object to.

Before I was Logg, I was Hogg. Hogg got banned for reposting something twice after it was summarily deleted.

Ereich was the mod that summarily deleted and then banned Hogg.

I can't even remember the contents of the zapped post, but I felt like there was no valid reason to delete it, which is why I reposted it twice.

It was never explained to me why it was deleted, and I'm sure there was no good reason, it was just ereich feuderating. I never received a warning either. The thread just kept disappearing, so I kept reposting. Rest assured, it wasn't the kind of post where personal or privileged details were revealed, it was probably a political op-ed.

But, when a mod makes a decision and you challenge it like that, you get gassed. Of course, I never had this problem with other mods. Other mods would have had better judgment about what to zap and what not to zap, and other mods probably would have warned me before liquidating me.

But with ereich, it was all feuderating, and thus, Hogg was summarilly liquidated, no warnings, no explanations, no 'one day timeout', and over something that was probably a pretty trivial OP.

It's rare that perpetrators experience such perfect justice so quickly, although a one-day timeout is merciful, compared to what this power-abuser would do to others for the same.

You take away the moderator part of feuderator, and you're left with a feuder.

Making him a moderator was like making George Zimmerman a neighborhood watch guy. "He may have some domestic abuse issues on his record, but that's no reason he can't also be a fair neighborhood watchman."
