Meh, this is what happens when you take a dump in a subforum you don't care for.

As for this thread, I don't see it really helping...

Right, so there will be a site announcement on the front page every time someone is temp banned? Will there be animgif banners or tags on the front page when someone is permabanned?

No there will not be site announcements for this.

OK, so... banned for violating the TOS because he protested the creation of a Forum that has nothing to do with Amigas and was created long after he agreed to anything?

Something's outta whack here...

Ya know, I maintain a forum about WWII and B-17s. I should open a sub-forum about Amigas because, like the B-17, the Amiga was built by smart engineering. Yea, my subscribers would appreciate that...

Not sure I would refer to his thread (it's still there, btw.) as "taking a dump". The "electric cars" section is a total waste of space and only exists to create some revenue for the site owner. And, more importantly: every time you stumble over it you're reminded that said site owner is trying to cover that up.

I haven't been here very long, but I appreciate the moderator for letting us know that an individual was banned. This site appears to have those that can be critical negatively without anything (apparently) positive to say.

I do think this is a place to get trolled and I am glad that someone did something. Not only that, this thread in particular  is not a soapbox, it's a warning to others that also share the same "approach" tho thread and topic response.

Thank you for letting us know, now let's move along with the point taken for what it should be.

Be constructive, be friendly, and be positive. Amigans such as myself, appreciate that much more.

I think problem is that mods here are passive aggressive (reminds me about Argo):

Quote

And to get to the "New Posts" page you have to what? Huh? I'm sorry, did you just say first log in (this tab is not available to visitors) and specifically click on the link which is nothing more then an automated search for the latest posted topics?

UH-OH! Did the word "search" just HAPPEN to pop out? I'm sorry, I shouldn't use that word because that not only debunks your argument but proves that you are arguing with a Mod!

OH NOs!!! Is a mod actually talking BACK to you?!?! Is he actually going to kick you for a week because you not only started a useless, negative thread but wouldn't back off???

Geez, if only this situation, collectively and individually, was covered by some governing body or written agreement that each and every member needs to sign before joining A.ORG...

If you don't have anything nice or constructive to say, DON'T!

Not only if one week makes sense... the way it was published as "news" is, to say it politely,a little strange. Then when I stand up can I publish it as news too? And when one person attacked in public he should have a chance to defend himself.


It's ugly. All of it.

A lot of strange things going on here lately. I think this site is in free-fall.

@ZeBeeDee

I choose to self-ban. There's a real world out there not governed by terms of service. Thankfully, Starbucks doesn't ask us to leave in response to nonsequiturs.

The reason Commodrejohn was banned for a week was because he broke the TOS after he was given a warning.

I announced it for several reasons.  First was that I usually make it known when I do this because I feel everyone deserves to know when such an action is taken.  I do not ban from the shadows nor do I do it without giving a warning or five.  By making it a news item I can make sure everyone has a chance to know what a Mod has done, not to showcase the individual.

Second, the reasons he was banned echoed of an on going issue on A.ORG.  My, "There's a new Sheriff in town" talk could have been done better, but on the same note there is no one perfect way to describe or explain my position.

Was there more to CJs ban then what is in the thread?  Yes.  Am I going to talk about the particulars?  No.  The OP covered the breaches so, hopefully, this will be avoided in the future.

Truth is I HATE putting out names.  The only reason I do it here is for the reasons I mentioned above.  If you think my tactics are too much one way or another, okay, that's fine.  But if you want to express yourself about me or anyone else on A.ORG in an abusive way, that's not fine.

People are allowed to have a difference of opinion and as I've said on countless occasions that is what makes the Amiga so great!  But when you purposely post to cause discord or anything else that breaks the TOS, how can you NOT get penalized?  
 
Oh, and if you think I am allowed to run around banning people willy-nilly, I already have, and replied to, a PM from SysAdmin to explain my actions.  It's all part of the job.  I know it is thankless.  But I still do it and I'll continue to do it the best way I know how.

I find it kind of useful to know who's been banned and for how long.  If you happen to be corresponding with someone that you only know through here, and they get banned for a week, at least you'd know why they weren't replying.
