I have also explained that you have not been singled out, others have been given infractions for inappropriate language in the past for making doping allegations and accepted the situation. Just because the rules needed redrafting to be made a bit clearer doesn't invalidate them - as I pointed out to you the GM rules state posters shouldn't make unsubstantiated match fixing or doping allegations, and you did, and it doesn't strictly matter what the infraction that goes on your user account is named.
I'm trying to avoid future situations where I could be ban based on unclear infraction (oversight) rules. I told you in my last PM if you answer those 3 question I won't bother you again with this problem.

you know what I mean. You made it sound like you were the only one who got this infraction for this type of "offence".
Well you know I can't see why others have been ban or sanctioned.
BTW it's the unclear type of offence that has generated this epic thread.

The rules are designed to be clear and define as far as possible what unacceptable behaviour is and what consequences will arise from it. There's always the possibility that something happens that doesn't fit clearly in one of the rules but something still needs to be done about it, so we will take action and then get the rules updated.

I mean, as long as you don't wish death, injury, make unsubstantiated doping or fixing allegations, make personal attacks, harass people, troll, bait, disrupt the forums or post spam or inappropriate material on the forum, you shouldn't need to be worrying about risks of being banned, no?

as it should be

Guess why we updated and clarified the rules? (no, not because of this epic thread )

I'm an impulsive guy, not to mention a die hard Federertard. So I worry.

scoobs, you ban alter ego for this, but you've let Topspindoctor off with a blatant 'wishing death' post on Corey Feldman's birthday thread.

Very inconsistent moderating.

Please. Posting a picture that says that someone's birthday is one year closer to death is hardly wishing death. That's a stretch and a half. It's not in very good taste though.

Well maybe it's not worth 3 months but to let him off with a deletion is very poor IMO.

Also why hasn't Rodre Fegassi been zapped yet.

Default Re: Question about my ban

I would like to point out once again towards the double standard this site uses.
While I was banned for 2 weeks for doping allegations (even though at the time the offence wasn't clearly mentioned in the site's rules) here we have a 3 page thread about match fixing allegations:

http://www.menstennisforums.com/show...=191593&page=3
Amazingly this thread isn't close and even more amazingly, no one is banned.
