    From the ban reason given in my email:

    GingerFurball, you've been a downer on the forum atmosphere for a long time now.
    Given that one mod has publically said that they reckoned I was the worst offender in bringing down the forum atmosphere, I reckon it certainly played a part in my ban.

    Nothing gets under my skin more than this accusation that we have a bias for Indian posters. You are impugning the integrity of all the mods when you make that accusation, and that really offends me. This accusation has no basis in fact whatsoever. We treat each member, each reporting post, the same. GF and SS were recent mods, ask them if they ever received any instruction (direct or indirect) to favor a group of posters. Don't you think at least one mod would've spilled the beans if such bias was part of the policy?
    My anger is not that it's racism, it's because your after the Indian millions in their policies. Sorry mate maybe I'm just trying to find a reason for the ridiculous inconsistenties of your policies, and coming up wrong.

    Yet I will repeat Bun was an obvious Indian Troll. he made nearly 2000 posts, when most of us acknoweleged him as such about 16 hundred posts earlier, what are we meant to think?

    Oh and you seriously think peoples reaction to Bun was worse then him, so you admit to him being a trolling multi, who has said vicious things about forum members yet you think we should all just go "what ho, he's a card", pathetic, and your a mod?

    It would almost be admirable if trolling wasn't the most pointless, and least life-affirming existence in history, including solicitors.

    Hey, I could have said "the Australian bowling coach", instead of solicitors as the most pointless, but I was being kind.

    We're after the Indian millions and that's why we favor them? Since you advocate transparency, do you mind sharing any proof you have on this?

    Let me repeat once again - when we felt that Bun was trolling, we infracted him. I maintain that the reaction he got from some members was worse than his actual posting. Just because we don't agree with you on a reported post, doesn't make us bias.

Let me remind you that it was this same system that eventually detected Bun as a multi. It took a while, I know, but we took immediate action when we got the proof we needed.
    Perhaps, just perhaps, if obvious multis were rissoled straight away instead of having the online equivalent of a coronial inquest before they get banned, there might not be so much speculation.

    I've seen people being very certain that a member was an obvious troll, and it turned out not to be the case. This was specially true during the period when Avada Kevada and his multis were leaving those vile VM's on people's walls. It's just not good policy IMO to ban people on a guess alone. When we have proof, we take action.

    I like Avada Kadavra.

    His existence led to Zaremba's post along the lines of "Ava-ava Kadavra. I wanna reach out and grab ya." I nearly wet myself.

    Other than that, I remember nothing of him.

    I don't have any proof, I just see the inconsistency, so I've made a dumb point, but I'm failing to see how obviously intelligent people couldn't see Buns trolling, from the very first, so I'm stretching, By showing that he was a previous troll, you surely must know all the reactions he got was wanted, so I'M REALLY CONFUSED BY THAT ARGUMENT

    Didn't we find out AK was himself a multi of someone else?

    I get what you're saying mate, but I don't see why your standard of proof needs to be so high here. It's a website, not a court of law.

    Given Bun's alleged previous identities, and what he posted under those identities, it really wasn't.

    So just to reiterate, Fusion is really upset about some of us thinking that the forum is biased because of the light way Bun and others have been treated, that's why many of us got angry. It's since been proved that Bun is a multi and has been stirring, Fusion reckons the reaction to someone that has been banned many times, and entire existence is stirring has been worse then the people calling him for it. GIMP has been banned for stating the obvious, and yet despite mealy-mouthed admissions of fact, amongst the people ruling the site, we get nowt.

    ho-hum

    Exactly, this doesn't seem to have been taken into account at all, I think you've been fairly restrained mate.

    Let me have a crack at reiterating as well. When you feel someone is trolling, report them. When you go after them directly, it ruins threads for others. Believe it not, there are many people on this forum who have zero interest in you or others "outing" a multi. They don't want to see a match thread turned into a flame war. That's the reaction I'm talking about.

    I also don't know how else to emphasize it, but a guessing game on identifying multis just won't do. People have guessed incorrectly before, it will happen again.

    Lastly conspiracy theories about going after "Indian millions" are just as trollish/offensive to me as any of Bun's trollish posts on the forum. How about we have a healthy and constructive debate without resorting to such attacks on our characters?

    And now we're back to my original point.
