This probably won't get answered, but whatever.
There is certain users whose behaviour definitely isn't within the rules of MTF. However they constantly get away with it and escape bans etc etc. I have asked mods/admins why one of these users gets away with this behaviour before and the response was along the lines of 'they are very special'. The clear implication there is that the user has mental health issues that affect the way they post. However, I am really not sure that this can be used as an excuse not to ban them. For all we know they could be trolling. The way I see it is that if they are fit enough to post on the forum, then they are fit enough to abide by the rules regardless of there mental health/wellbeing.
I mean the fact is that these users aren't the only ones with mental health issues, and it isn't painting a good picture that certain users are getting off the hook with trolling because of their apparent mental health issues. I myself suffer from Aspergers and know at least 3 forumers that also suffer from it. However i'd like to think that our posting is not affected by this. if the posters I am referring to are getting let off the hook then why aren't me and those suffering from Aspergers also getting let off the hook when we troll etcs?
You're right man, that's not getting answered.
Alright, alright, I'll give it a shot...
I think I know what poster(s) you're talking about, since you may have mentioned this in the past. Yeah, no posters should be receiving special treatment. We all come from all walks of life, and come with our own various different set of abilities and needs like any large gathering of people. The main problem is that when it comes to trolling, it's not always that obvious. As you say, for all we know they could be trolling, but most of the time that's a subjective matter and tough for mods to decipher and be consistent with it. We prefer to give everyone the benefit of the doubt as much as possible.
I'm unsure if you feel their threads are breaking the rules or if it's just their entire forum persona that they use when they post, but you're going to have to report their rule breaking posts or otherwise guide us to where they're breaking the rules. From what I've seen of them personally, their behaviour seems quite light-hearted and not really breaking rules, otherwise something would have been done about it, but since you see it differently, PM us or report to your leisure, mate.
