why was i banned?
    #1506403 - 04/30/03 01:32 AM (13 years, 11 months ago)

I just read the rules for banning and it says it will give a reason .. and i was given "baiting and heckling" but no where did it include what i said... it was just pulled from a hat and magically it was justified that i was banned.

since no "individual" banned me(it said administration) i asked moe and other moderators publicly in the forum and not one person answered my question. they all completely ignored me and even when other members asked on my behalf.

i think this banning was unjustified... and stems from the fact that i protested the unrighteous banning of bivalve by simply saying "unban bivalve" which clearly does not represent "baiting and heckling"

i will be very happy to put this issue to a rest if a moderator can point out what i said which initiated my 5 day temporary ban... thank you.

I have no interest in getting into a long, drawn out debate over this, but does it really matter? And if your banning was "unjustified" what are you really going to do about it? Get your money back? Like I said, I'm not trying to cause an argument, but take your lumps like a man and just let it rest would you?

It does matter to him. It matters to me as well. Accountability needs to increase around here. When someone is reprimanded they should be given a reason, otherwise how are they to change their behavior to avoid being reprimanded again.

is this how you want the shroomery run, just "be quiet" its over and done with? i'm sorry, but i care about this place.. i don't even care about my ban.. believe me, it didn't effect me that much, but this is something that harms the integrity of the shroomery and the moderators that run it. i'm doing this just so i can get closure, and it will hopefully show me there is logic and reason behind these decisions, not swift clicks of banning due to emotion.

Can't you search? You have like a million posts.

Last post you made was jumping into Moe's thread with "UNBAN BIVALVE!!"

Considering you were bitching non stop maybe that was the trigger for your ban.

no, i have 1497 posts. i am pretty sure i didn't ban myself, so how the hell would i know which post caused it?

so you are agreeing with me that my unban bivalve posts contributed to my banning? well that just adds fuel to the fire, something is wrong here.

From the rules.

That explains it right there. This is a private club, end of story. Your membership can be revoked just for lookin' goofy. It is obvious you know what you did. There is plenty of logic and reason behind the decisions, you just don't agree with it....Tough. These kinds of posts get old real quick, and I for one am sick of seeing them. You can always leave.

As Thor stated he was given a reason. He just didn't agree with it.

funny how when i first came here back in 99 everyone was welcomed and accepted, now that i have a problem, not only is it not addressed, but i'm ridiculed and told to "leave" if i don't like it.... quite sad.

What is sad is people who do not understand the rules, and hold grudges against the administration for doing their job and trying their best to make this place better. What is sad is that some people fail to realize that their actions here have concequences. What is sad is that people were allowed to get away with things which should have not been tolerated in the first place. What is sad is that people here feel the need to push boundries. What is sad is that people cannot realize that (A)it isn't four years ago, and that (B) things change.

You know LoOner, im glad and sad you got banned.
Im glad because from what i read you deserved it. Whenever i read your posts i get this distaste in my mouth, ya know? Youre always threatening to beat people up even though you have no idea who they are, you put off a HUGE racist, sexist, homophobic, offstandish vibe in many of your posts. You can almost see it oozing from the words. I think this post describes why you were banned to a T.
LoOner's personality disorder
Im sad because its probably gotten you all riled up and now its going to cause more problems. I wish whoever banned you admitted it so i could stand behind him. Lets face it youre a dick

I thought we discussed this already in this thread.

You should be banned for redundancy.
And R E D U N D A N C Y should be added to the forum rules as a banning reason :wink:

Works for me.
You could also try omitting the variables and using only this.

You should be perma banned just for being too stupid to comprehend that not only is this a private site and you can be banned for any reason, but also for not realizing most people could give a shit whether you're here or not.

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ~ Adrian Rogers
