I got banned for 'trolling' apparently,yes. What do you want to do now,hang me??
But I think we need clearer guidelines on 'trolling'. I got banned actually for making a personal attack on someone, and it was classed as trolling
Yes I had been laughing at my player beating himself that day,and it was taken too seriously. And then its 'Guess who just got banned?' STOP WITH PEOPLE BEING ALLOWED TO GLOAT OVER OTHER PEOPLES BANS!!!!! Trolling is a stupid expression,a kids phrase,I suppose quite apt for this place!
Either we have zero tolerance and ban for virtually every post or no bans.
My opinion is this, and you're gonna get it whether you want it or not. This is an internet site, my 'crime' was to get 3 months for publicly admonishing people who were getting on my nerves, and then someone who posts here issued a death threat to me on FB?? I was under provocation but because the death threat wasn't issued here, I got banned. I had previously been stalked on the internet, and I was told I was stupid to take threats like those seriously by people here, still what did I expect? But no,people cant take a joke here, or conversely don't apply any correct emotional judgement!!
If my only crimes in my life are to get banned from this site twice, 3 months and a 1 week, then I will have done damn well in my life I think.
I wasn;t even allowed to appeal my ban,which you can if you are banned from driving, pick up a speeding ticket..Again ridiculously OTT and completely without perspective or fairness.
I don't give a damn what any of you think I barely know any of you and judging by the crap that goes on here its a damn good job! So who is gonna tell tales of me/ban me this time I wonder.
I don't have any regrets or feel ashamed for being banned from an 'internet Forum, even after opening this topic about hate, because nothing has changed!!! And,there are worse stigmas in this world!!
Which brings me to my next point, again pathetic and injust. WHY?WHY?WHY? do we now have 'Banned' under User Names so that everyone who even lurks can see a poster cant post!!! What is this a prison cell...or an internet Forum?? Even serial shoplifters don't get named and shamed quite so publicly, tone the shaming down a bit!!!
I'll wait for further sentencing!
