The level of hate here is unacceptable

Re: The level of hate here is unacceptable

I understand what you're saying here but you have to keep in mind that:

-we are not online/on mtf 24/7
-we have lives/jobs/studies that also need our attention
-we rely on the other posters to report things

Cleaning up this site as you suggests would be an immense job, because this forum is simply too big to check every detail to see if it's okay or not. And as we are not paid to do this....it's not an option.

So you see anything wrong, please report it, even if you have to do it twice, because, yes we're only human and we can also miss things but Im sure Im not telling you anything you didnt already know

Re: The level of hate here is unacceptable

may i know who all else has the moderator called zirconek sent infractions to? in my calculation it must be more than 5 at least per day because some people log on to the site just to hate me.......

so, is that being done zirco? because i see infractions from you time and again........perhaps it's time that you had also told them once "when you throw shit, you would only get shit in return"??

You were infracted only twice by me, and I can assure I've deleted a few if not several posts of yours that could have been infracted. I've infracted or warned people who insulted you too.

Re: The level of hate here is unacceptable

Interesting thread. I partially agree with its poster.

There's something wrong with this forum when a forum member can call "maricon" ("faggot" in spanish) to a player without getting a punishment. Some people need to get a life. This is only a sport, an entertainment.

Best regards.

Re: The level of hate here is unacceptable

I feel like bans should be much longer when a poster sends deaths threats or wishes death on posters/players.
In fact, I think they should results in permabans straight away.

I don't think bad language should be taken too seriously, unless it's very heavily insulting.

Re: The level of hate here is unacceptable

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!
