Well inflammatory comments could mean parts of the forum rules were violated. It depends on exactly what your comments were.
If they were racist, hate speech,insulting or mean spirited. So a comment that may offend someone even in jest would be grounds for a ban.
You should have been sent a reason for the ban in detail.
So, I typically would never ever make a thread like this, and have already gone the route of messaging numerous moderators individually about my issue, with no response for almost 2 weeks.
So, time to go public I guess.
My concerns, I feel, aren't very serious, but I'm annoyed they aren't being addressed.
First, I get a 24 hour ban for "inflammatory comments" which, in and of itself, isn't a big deal, and in some cases expected. But I never got into any trouble for my past remarks, then suddenly, BOOM, "see ya tomorrow" Oooook....well, whatever. And the Mods have yet to elaborate on that as well
Also, the "Attractive people" thread, had numerous posts with women in bikinis that were allowed to stay up until the thread ultimately got pushed down from lack of use, but my Kate upton gifs that were not any better or worse, were removed within 24 hours?
So, my ultimate question is, are you guys just willy-nilly moderating? Like, whatever you kinda think is bad, remove it? Because thats what I'm seeing.
please correct me if I'm wrong.
I don't think the Moderators are 'willy nilly moderating' no, I thought about addressing each point you made Setz but I decided there was really no need to, sufffice to say though that the Moderators do of course have guidelines & rules that they follow, however having said that some instances of 'Forum Abuse' will of course automatically fall under a suspension or ban where as others may be borderline & perhaps that is where the difference is coming in, also you have to bear in mind that each Moderator is of course their own person & although they have rules to follow, in any given situation one may decide to suspend & one may not, circumstances will also dictate that as well as possibly personal opinion, although the last will be a factor it should really be least deciding one.
In the first instance my suggestion would be send a PM to the Moderator who sent you the suspension, if you have tried that route already or have yet to receive a response then please PM Trawnza, she really is the best person to contact about this if other routes have not helped you to rtesolve this.
