I s'pose someone has to report the post and be offended before an infraction is imposed.

100's of insulting members on here but Total Members:209853 so a few 100 banned won't be missed.

basically if you get reported you get an infraction, if you dont then you obviously wont receive the infraction, seems unfair but just the way it goes, mod discretion and all that


although last time i made a thread about what is and isnt ok to say i think some just said stick ya dummy back in, so stick ya dummy back in
#3
I think it's not what you say - or even how you meant it that matters.

Its how it's taken that seems to count
#4
infracted but not suspended.....

whats the problem?

what sassie said..

Mods wont look over every post, so if you get reported because someone "feels" that you insulted them, youll get an infraction.

And sassie, i dont like the way you said that, im reporting you lol (joke)

yeah but how do you determine "how its been taken" if someone says "I find that insulting"....so everybody who found the BNP threads and replies on those threads insulting could report the reply and the user would get an infraction?....

seems a bit pie in the sky dont you think?:?

ant you ask the mods what the 'insulting' post said? I mean...if you dont know what is insulting then surely you cant avoid it???:? then you could possibly get an idea of who reported it?

it's how the mods determine it that matters, end of the day if they see it as an insult then you get infracted, whether or not you meant it that way doeasnt really matter, even if you add sweetie, love, hun, xxxx, after it


of course will also depend who you are talking to and how popualr you are to the amount of times it gets reported, i called asomeone a silly cow and within minutes was suspend, me took that as im not popular

Exactly, nothing to the person getting the infraction but what it does indicate is the lunacy of the reason under which they are issued. If infractions are issued for daft reasons then it kind of undermines the infraction system.

another view there seems to be some mods who at the drop of a hat will infect when their fav poster complains .. double standards I tell you :thumbsup:

#24
you have to be careful,there are a couple of major snitches on here,I got suspended twice in a week recently for very very little,infact the posts in question still remain.

Mods decision of course and I accept that but you need to watch your back

It doesn't have to be the "insulted" member who reports you for an infraction to be issued.
It's no big deal really, mistakes are made, nothing will change that.
