    Infractions.

    There doesn't appear to be a thread/place to discuss moderator warnings here, so I hope it is OK to post here with this question........

    Biggest cheater in Avatar bets - Uvo

    Most one eyed and annoying - definitely Hooksey

    Most infatuated with a single player - Benchy/Haddin
    I received 5 infraction points for this post in the thread "Poster Ratings as we go" with the reason.......

    "Reason: Lack of respect for, insulting, or harassment of other members
    -------
    A clear troll and attempting to flame a situation with Hooksey. Don't do it please".


    So it genuinely wasn't a troll on my part, it was my rating of Hookseys postings as per the thread title/purpose. That said I can certainly see how it was construed as such and although I think the penalty was harsh I'm not here to complain about it.......just have to think harder about what I post in future.

    But what I don't get is why allow a thread like this in the first place if negative ratings towards posters aren't tolerated? The purpose of the thread (and I see they have been done before) is to rate posters.........but are we to assume only positive ratings are welcome?

    Also, are there any FAQ's or something similar here that explain how this infraction business works? I see I have these points for a period of 6 months, presumably if a poster accumulates enough points they receive a ban? Are these policies documented anywhere?

    As with most of these wretched "play the post and not the poster" exhortations context is everything - how that particular comment about Hookesy in that context is trolling is beyond me

    All things even themselves up though, as the avatar is clearly infractable - I certainly feel harassed, insulted and disrespected by it

    Don't see how you can think calling someone annoying is not infraction worthy given precedence.

    Sadly the doctrine of precedent has no place here, nor indeed does the concept of words bearing their ordinary natural meaning

    Would say if you take into consideration the context of the words, i.e. Person saying it/who it's about and their relationship, it becomes even more infraction worthy.

    Can't agree - it seems to me that calling Jono a **** is not the same as calling Benchy a ****, and both are difficult to reconcile with the fact that, as you so eloquently put it, I am without doubt a ****

    Look I'm really not complaining about the infraction per se, I'm mildly irritated by it.....but I can certainly see why it was issued. I just think the thread it was posted in is inviting the sort of post I made otherwise what is the point of it??

    Dunno about the relationship business.......you and I have had our minor battles, IMO a thread that has the title "Poster ratings" would be the right place for you to say you think I post gash.......better than in a tour thread no?

    The other point to this thread was to find out how this infraction process works......how many gets you a ban and for how long etc. I am not asking this so I can sail close to the wind by any means, I'm just curious as to how it all works and I can't see any info on it.

    the disparity in **** between jono and bench**** is in the degree alone

    Perhaps I should have just called Hooksey a ****???

    Edit:

    And since I'm asking about the inner workings of CW...........why does Jono cop so much **** here?? I'm sure it is all tongue in cheek, friendly banter but he seems to get an awful lot of it.
