    Your opinion

    Hello everybody. Been an awfully long time since I did this sort of thing, but it's a new era so I am going to do this a new way. In this post I will just provide facts, and then ask for your opinions:

    Fact #1: 3 weeks ago, benchmark 00 started this thread. He may have had a specific poster in mind, that is not for me to infer here in a fact-based post.

    Fact #2: sledger and benchmark00 do not like each other.

    Fact #3: at the weekend, sledger started this thread and was deemed to be baiting benchmark00 by doing so.

    NB - baiting = looking for a reaction or aiming to provoke

    So, my question to you is, do you feel that this is an example of baiting? Or is this an example of heavy-handed moderation that doesn't look after the forum's best interests but rather give the moderators an easy life? You decide.

    I trust that this thread will remain open as to close it would potentially act as an indicator that moderators are not interested in the opinions of the membership, which would be silly given the whole purpose of a forum having moderators.

    I'm not going to comment on any other issues, but singling out one thread as bait when TF is filled with several other (similar, might I add) joke threads does strike me as hilarious.

    This thread does not serve a productive purpose so Im going to close it. GIMH you obviously know this thread will descend into madness. One side will obviously accuse the other of wrongdoing and back and forth well go in quite a nasty manner I might add. If Sledger has questions about his infraction, hes more than welcome to contact us. Suffice to say, we dont give out infractions that lead to bannings lightly. Factors such as the history of the poster, previous warnings/infractions, and intent of the post are all taken into account. We recognize that not all moderation decisions will be accepted by everyone. While we respect the opinions of those that disagree, at the end of the day we do have to make decisions that we feel are in the best interest of the site, even if that upsets some members.
