Question for the Mods
« on: February 10, 2009, 04:45:47 PM »
How exactly does one become banned and is it completely up to the mod's feelings rather than breaking of rules or general annoyance?

i've been banned before.  so, i have some perspective.  but, before i say anything let me state i am only speaking from my perspective and my own views on the matter in retrospect.
first, as far as i know it has to be a unanimous decision amongst the titans.  and i see the titans as being a large slice of different opinions and personality types.  it would be like trying to get 18 different cats to agree on something, if you follow my meaning.
secondly, and here i get very theoritical, but i really feel this to be true;  ppl get banned when they are causing other ppl harm.  and what i realized is this.  not everyone is strong.  i am.  you are.  those that post with passion are.  but some ppl are hurt by well meant posts.  (or badly intended, who am i to judge?)
point is this.  if you are a strong person you have to be careful with your strength so that those who might not understand you are not dealt harshly.
when i was banned, i truly believe the titans meant well.  i was enganged in activities that was harmful to others.  and i don't think there is a conspiracy, or a popularity contest, or any sort of fascism.
i was allowed to return.  and i have been much more careful in how i treat others.  it is about noblisse oblige, i think.
(oops edit!  i just noticed you said question for the mods!  hope i'm not sticking my neck out intrusively!   i don't think just the mods are involved, there are admins, mods, and titans.  of which i am none.  but i hope my thoughts help.)

If this was truly the case, there would be a lot more banned people.

or...it is hard to judge, hard to come to a consensus, and i'm glad i'm not in that position of authority.

2. No airing of dirty laundry. All disagreements with the rules or decisions of the moderators and administrators should be discussed via private message. Further appeal of moderator decisions must be made to non-moderator titans.

I'm locking this thread.  If anyone has something they need to discuss about this sort of thing, please contact a moderator or Titan.
