Oh ok. I get it now. I guess the MOD just did not want to add me and did not want to hurt my feelings. So the MOD said "It's against the rules"...that is why I won't add you.
I was the "mod" that said that (even though I'm not a moderator). The message was sent to me via XMB message and not forum PM. I answered for On-Console, Live Moderation, not for forum moderation/moderators.
