The moderators on this website have adopted a very vigorous approach to banning in recent months which is reflected in the far higher number of banned posters. Usually a first ban I thought should only be 1 month so the 3 months does seem extreme.
In the case of Habibko and Jase they did rather provoke a collection of very astute posters on this website who know what is either side of the permissible rules and carefully ensure that they remain unbanned. They seem to be rather enjoying getting somebody banned, but then a number seemed rather pleased here when Shankar was banned.
It's almost like a double standard Most
of the time I regard habibko as a complete troll, one of the worst posters on MTF. So, just as I was glad when RFK got banned, I was pleased to see hahib banned for his trolling this morning. Best thing for everyone would be if he were banned from the Rafa forum like ezetroll was banned from the Nole forum. He's obsessed with the place and can't keep away, which is fine so long as he can stop himself from posting but he seems to have proved he can't.
1st bans can be any length. WHen I got my unjustified ban it was only for 5 days like habibko's. The other one's ban (don't know him) isn't surprsing because the site rules clearly state than wishing death on a player or poster is an absolute no no. Many posters have been banned for "jokingly" wishing a player would die after he cost them a win in the Tennis Tipping game.
I wouldn't worry about us. It's always pleasing when foul mouthed bullies and/or idiots get banned. What habibko did in the Rafachat wasn't "very pleasant" either, and his posts deserved to be reported.
For the record, I report every post I see as "over the line" because the admins/mods have stated many times that this is how you should deal with posts that you find offensive, rather than getting into a pointless argument. I did report one of that boy's posts just before he was banned. His behaviour on GM was ruining a lot of threads, and he had been well warned by the site admins/mods
I will not lie, I was glad to see the back of him and GM is better for him not being there. IMO.
I seem to be getting a bit of heat here for understanding the site rules, and posting within them
That's what we should all be doing. Things I have never done:
* trolled a player forum
* made unfounded and malicious doping accusations (Rosie
* wished death on a player or fellow poster
* made a racist or homophobic remark
Shame on me
Somebody should have told Jase how sensitive the Rafatards are. They target posters and try to have them banned.
You are now on The List.
It wasn't a "Rafatard" who reported that Certinfy. I think he was banned for some thing he wrote here, and the vast majority of Rafachatters don't read this thread ever.
Slokid promised to ban me one day long ago and had the long-awaited opportunity this time, congratulations btw tough admin, aren't you so mature, u didn't have to warn or infract first, you just outright ban someone who has never even been infracted before
LOL. If your behaviour is bad enough you can get banned for a first offence. The mods have a "custom" penalty to cover this.
