    The double standards need to stop!!

    I come on this forum to interact with other fans and to give a west indian viewpoint, now i'm not saying i've been a complete angel since i signed up here, but i've always tried to adhere to the rules of the forum, just over a week ago i was conversing on the WI vs Aus thread with a poster who was been trying to dictate to me why i'm wrong not to support Sammy, my last reply to him was this..

    Quote Originally Posted by WindieWeathers View Post

    Now i'm fully aware when i'm in the wrong and i've taken my punishments before, but is that really a banning offence? really? in that post i haven't insulted anyone i've just basically put down the facts, but evidently that was enough to get me a one week ban without a warning or explanation,

    If the rules were the same for everyone i'd have no issues, but just a few days earlier a poster said this to me...

    And why are you so interested in watching kids play anyway? Hmmmm?
    It's pretty clear what said poster was implying but there was no action taken even after i made the mods aware of it.. ,

    I'm probably the only WI fan who actually spends a decent amount of time on these forums, most of the others that were here when i first signed up have either been driven away or banned for good, i'm not asking for special treatment, but when the double standards are as blatant as the example i provided above then it leaves me wondering whether WI fans really have a place around here at all,

    In closing what this post does for my future here is anyones guess, but i'm not a fan of walking on egg shells and that's exactly what i'd have to do if i didn't speak up.

    cheers

    WW

    But that's just an expression, it's not an "eff you" sign is it? and lets be honest plenty of posters have crossed the line and haven't been punished but for some reason i'm always getting the short end of the stick, the example is there for all to see.

    Also the post i was replying to had a rolleyes smiley aswell.

    So if i was banned for the rolly eyes then the other party should have been aswell.

    How do you know there was no action taken for Burgey's post? The mods could have issued a warning or an infraction of some sort for it without making it public and tbh I would have expected them to.
