    favoritism?



    Some aspect I would accept however I wouldnt agree to be the 100% case, id go with usual suspect vs unusual suspect.

    Ah they don't.. just some of you for some reason today think it's really funny to write swearwords. Hilarious and original! No, really. It is.

    Some of you already have live infractions on your account, meaning if you break the rules then you'll automatically be suspended.
    Others don't, so warnings are issued. If they're ignored, you may be suspended.

    So, it depends on how far you crossed the line (for example, are you trying to banter with friends or are you being threatening) what you've done in the past. That sort of thing.

    Ok broken down then JB it was having a laugh and seriously I need to get on with work but just cant be bothered hence the laughable suspend me and breaking of rules openly (but really feel free, would do me a fuqing favour tbh),

    Churchill however swore but as banter back at me and I feel he wasnt meant to do such hence why the ban, you say favouritsm and past merits we know how churchill is however shouldnt everyone be treated the same on a case by case not a past history ?

    Please don't go down to the level of swear filter avoidance. I keep telling people i'm hard as Nailez and it won't have the same affect if you are suspended

    Not really as past history includes warnings , previous bans etc. If you keep offending the punishment gets worse. If you make a mistake fair enough but once you have been told what you have done is not acceptable and carry on then that is worse.

    Nice to see churchy has been unsuspended, at least some sort of consistency.

    so what's new?
    that's life isn't it?

    I am always amused when I see people on forums complain about being suspended/banned etc and yet seem to forget both their oft obvious behaviour that has clearly resulted in action being taken.

    The most amusing aspect though is the fact that some people feel that they have some kind of rights, especially when what they are on is a free site.

    When the site is somebody else's and it's free you have no real rights, so don't complain.

    There is a swear word missing from your sentence Nailez X)

    I'm a very rare breed of member that had a ban reversal in the space of 30mins

    There should be a badge for that.


    To answer your question every member is treated the same

    it's more like what hasn't churchill done to me! he's upset me big style that's what and i don't forget and forgive i am afraid.

    oooo details?

    To answer your question Nailez, I think fp hit the nail on the head (no pun intended ) in that yes it does depend on which mod(s) are on duty as to how you will be severely you will be punished.


    As much as they like to go on about everyone being treated the same and impartiality, the simple fact is the mods are human (inb4 someone makes up a crap joke, yes I’m looking at you fp ) and before they were mods a lot of them were quite well liked members on here (eg Sy, Wedge) and they “get” misk banter/humour and know what to expect of certain members.


    I think Andy does a bang up job on the night shift, he is fair and not heavy handed and he always posts lulzy comments like this one which always helps defuse situations and for the most part, members will behave themselves.


    There are also some mods who seem to have a sense of humour bypass and have no tolerance, and as such punishments are often severe.


    I guess it boils down to pot luck as to why the rules vary and are only applicable to certain members as interpreted by the spirit of the rules per individual mod.

    Nailez

    oooo details?



    sorry nailez, you had to be there to see it. you're a day person and me and churchill are night owls.
    the fighting gloves get donned after the watershed hours on here.
    you don't know what you missing. X)

    Hi muttles, me and churchill have had tons of run ins, some not too pleasant either - but I have learnt to forgive and forget, makes a better experience on here. (Not sure if he has forgiven and forgotten though)
