Rejecting 'analysis by checklist' and 'skill absolutism' since Dec '09
Sorry, I like Indian posters, by and large, but there does seem a bias for them,was Cevno warned for his ridiculous accusations against me recently. Which I think amounted to, "I really needed to get in early to start this argument, because he (me) was going to start the argument anyway, coz he's such a ****"
Do I contradict myself?
Very well then I contradict myself,
(I am large, I contain multitudes.
Ironically, part of the reason that I don't think you guys have the faith you need from the wider community to just start turfing idiots is because you're either too slow to do so; there were two idiots in particular who signed up during the World Cup who, after making about 5 posts each, were obviously crap posters, and IIRC one of India's latter stages match threads was completely ruined by them both, or because some posters get turfed for long periods of time whereas others who are equally destructive are only getting a week's break for accumulating 15 points.
One other thing about mod policy recently; I think you guys recently have been far too quick to jump on the "serial offender" infraction. As crap a poster as OMM! was, jumping from a week's ban for infraction points to 6 months for being a serial offender seems to me to be a bit much, not that I'm campaigning for his ban to be shortened, the guy is a tool and the forum will be better off without him. Had it been 6 months for forum atmosphere (read: being an intolerable douchebag) then it would sit easier. As for Corrin's ban? UIMM prior to this ban he'd been banned twice for 3 days and 1 week. 6 months for being a serial offender for (ironically) going after Bun and accusing him of being a Precam multi just didn't make any sense, and IMO is a joke frankly. Corrin was warned not to do what he did but did it anyway; that's "continual disobedience" IMO. I fit the definition of "serial offender" much more closely, given that I've had 6 different infractions handed to me for "lack of respect, insulting or harrassing other members."
Agreed. Clearly Furball should be banned for 6 months.

Now that Bun's banned, can we reverse the GIMP ban?
yep, would like to say I've never been infracted, so I don't believe Cevno was treated worse then me, but all I did was make a casual statement. Still don't get what or why he said it, it was so odd. It was just like he'd singled me out, and I wouldn't have minded if it was one comment, but he kept on and on, justifying it. Even after a mod had mentioned it was an odd statement to make. very odd.

And as you know, I can't comment on the existence of the serial offender infraction.

PRews, must be your new name, we just want obvious ****es to be cited, sorry, the mod team aren't doing that, you can throw in as much verbiage, and smilies as you want, but it just remains some are getting away with crap, who have been finally proved as toxic, and others have been banned for months for pointing this out, whichever way you want to spin it, it's rubbish
