(19) Backseat moderating won't be tolerated. Simply report a post if you feel that it breaks the rules. Don't post that you've reported a specific post, that another poster should be banned, that a thread should be moved to a player forum just because you aren't interested, etc. Such behaviour will result in a warning or an infraction for baiting.

Why the hell did mods delete posts in the match ups you want to see that haven't happened that said stuff such as "Johnny Groove vs Donald Young" ?

Really, they're just jokey type posts, they are not offensive in any way, or bashing anyone, just a bit of light hearted fun. Come on guys, stop trying to make everything so strict because you know it does not need to be like that.

Stop questioning Modding decision without having consistent evidence that what you're saying or defending is backed by rules.

So making a harmless joke is now against the rules? Good to know that. Let's just have the forum become dull as, I am sure every one wants that.

The moderation team needs to get a sense of humour.

I'd be recieving a red infraction for this at the very least, if not a two day ban.

Haven't responded, or backseat moderated. Let's see if the appropriate action is taken.

This is why I post less now Slasher, because you guys don't deal with the trolls and penalise those whom actually have stuff to offer and discuss. It astonishes me some of the stuff you do pick up on and some of the stuff you let go.

In real life speaking, I would call it a policeman stopping a car driver for not stopping at a red light over driving past as he notices a bank getting robbed.

If you're going to complain about someone, it isn't exactly fair for you to attack them yourself 5 minutes after you tell us the complaint. It's hard for us to take action when we delete their comment, and then you go and attack them for a comment that isn't directed at you.

Tell me that again, please. With feeling this time.

That thread was started with serious intent, yet on the first page only 7/11 posts were trolling (what you call joking) already taking the thread to a whole new direction where matchups between the same player or Johnny Groove and Uncle Toni are possible. Now, I have nothing against joking at all, but it's ridiculous to open a thread and have the first page full of crap. Come on! Moderation, not exaggeration...

Joking or trolling. A subjective thing....

Deleted my thread on a professional tennis player PMing me via Twitter and no PM to explain the reason why.

Deathless_Mortal is the only guy that PMs users explaining the issue.

Someone merged it with the Krygios match thread.

Default Re: Ask MTF Mods

I don't know if this is the place to argue over deleted posts, but since others have done it, I'm going to do the same. Though from a point of view of the rules and I will get to my deleted post at the end.

From the Site-Wide Rules and Guide to Rule-Breaking Consequences thread:
Quote:
[...]This also includes allegations or accusations of match fixing or result fixing in other sports. Evidence of unusual betting patterns are insufficent proof to publicy denigrate someone's reputation and will not be tolerated. When unusual betting patters occur, posters are, if they wish to, encouraged to post details of this, but without drawing inappropriate conclusions. If a specific allegation is levelled against a player or sportsperson by the appropriate governing body, this can be discussed, but posters should again remember that an allegation is not the same as a conviction.[...]
What does "the appropriate governing body" include? According to me discussions on all the following(at minimum) cases of alleged match fixing should be allowed:
1) The person in question has been proven guilty in a court of law for some form of match-fixing.
2) The person in question is currently in trial in a court of law for the same.
3) The person in question is currently under investigation(either from a police force/intelligence agency or the board of government of that sport) for the same.

Now a comprehensive fourth point(all applicable together):
4a) The person in question had a case against him involving fixing, though he was cleared due to insufficient evidence(6-8 months ago).
4b) Members of the countries board of government for that sport wanted the person in question to step down from his position of power due to his and his families involvement in a fixing scandal.(6-8 months ago)
4c) The person in question has had MANY corruption cases against him(including some present) relating to his business.
4d) There was a criminal complaint against the person in question for stealing money from the sporting board of government that he was the leader of, and for match-fixing. (2-3 months ago). Nothing further was informed to the public.
4e) The person in question is currently being referred to by media as the "future warlord" of the sport. (Last 2 days)
4f) Another (in)famous person in the sport has asked for the person in question to be "banned for life" from all bodies relating to the sport. (2 days ago).

My post, in The Cricket Thread(in Chat Threads), talked about situations falling under one of cases (1) to (3), including a video from a news channel discussing the same. I also talked about a possible cover up of a few players involvement which was also backed by the video, and by a report by a Supreme Court Judge of India(which also backed a few of my other statements). For the one person that I mentioned who didn't fall under (1), (2) or (3), every subpoint in (4) was applicable(and MANY MANY more such points, see link below). Yet, my post was deleted.

Due a recent change in administration(last 10 days) in the sport, the person who who falls under (4) above is going to be officially the most powerful man in the sport. Are we not allowed to talk about the implications of that? This is the man, who 9 months ago(before all of point (4)) was called someone who was potentially "cricket's most destructive figure".

Or is it my duty to write this entire history every time I say something against him? If a major fixing case involving a few specific people has been on-going for close to a year(and many corruptions cases against some said people(including relating to cricket) over the last 3-4 years), I should not need to post links for every old development in the case. I had posted a link for the most recent development. If the moderator is not at least slightly well informed about the topic, (s)he should not get busy deleting posts.
