Well, I know some people here are going to find this a little silly, I almost do myself.
I'm not sure how many of you noticed that I was banned about a week ago.
It wasn't permanent. Only until December 3rd. The thing is, I've been posting a lot less in the R/P lately (though still reading it daily) and had been thinking
about quitting this forum for a little while now.
Some of you may have seen a few posts of mine complaining about the amount of trolls in this section over the last few months, mostly because of the terrible moderation of
Now that I made this account, I expect this one and my original to be permabanned.
Not what I wanted, but I'll accept it.
Anyways, to the topic at hand.
I've been a member here since 2004, I had near 6 thousand posts I believe (maybe more I don't remember) and reputation of over 6000k (again I don't remember exactly, never paid attention to that stuff).
I was banned for "harassing" a "member" via PM's.
That so called member was 'DannyHinConn'
I can't post a link to his threads, but I would think many regular posters remember him from last week.
Everyone figured him to be that other troll the day before him, iedneo or idneo, or whatever his username was.
Anyways, after reporting "DannyHinConn" all day long, and no moderators taking action, I proceeded to troll him via PM's.
And that got me banned. Ironically, my ban seems to have come after he was banned.
So, this pass week I have sent 2 emails to the forum admin, and 2 emails to fitmom43 (the mod who banned me) pleading my case, and have yet to receive one reply.
That's it for me. Like I said, I feel as though trolling has become rampant in this section, intelligent discussion has greatly diminished, and it's just not worth it.
If someone like myself, an almost eight year member, is going to be banned for "harassing" a troll in PM's, this forum has gone to **** more than I thought.
I've learned and been exposed to A LOT on this forum in the almost 8 years I've been here, and I am very grateful for it.
There's still some really good posters here (regardless if I disagree with them) who have really helped to educate me politics and religion.
Thank you everyone,
I know you'll ban this account and my original permanently, since multiple accounts are against the rules, but please do not delete this thread, so I may so goodbye to some posters I have come to admire and respect in our last few years of discourse.
