FS rules obviously at the top of each FS thread

And which is the rule that prohibits and thus bans users for posting PMs?

Netiquette? It strikes me as rude to post private messages on a public board.
Who got banned?

whos been posting pm's?
I'd consider it bad form as well.

Someone did on here;

The PM has been deleted now and the person who sent the PM suspended, the person who posted the PM isn't suspended

well i didn't see what happened. I don't think Pm's should be posted but if there was a problem with something said via pm then a mod should have been notified and the person dealt with that way.

I saw it and the person sent a few insulting lines and i think it mentioned he would probably get banned for it

I understand that it's bad netiquette.

But considering the mods are so high and mighty on the rules, I find it pretty pathetic that if there's no rule against it, I was suspended for FIVE days for posting a PM.

And I posted it in a thread because when I replied to the PM, the mod's inbox was full.

If this is indeed not a rule and I was thus suspended for 5 days for it, then admin needs to take a look at this because mods are so firm on the rules but now they're banning based on personal preference.

Banned

agree with you AV1985.

You have your wires crossed. The user who posted the pm did not get suspended. The user who sent the abusive pm got suspended.

PM's are 'private' messages, they shouldn't require a rule.
