So I see that im still banned from game threads and I have no idea why.

Back during the finals I was abruptly banned from the game threads with no reason as to why and no warnings about anything.

Im still wondering who banned me, why and if it will ever be rescinded? Kind of bogus if you ask me. Do I really need to make the move to reddit for game discussions??
everyone got so sensitive after 9-11... thanks alot bin laden

Might be a better move to PM a mod than posting a thread like this.

Maybe, but you would think the mod who banned me would've done the same back when they did with an explanation or something..

Those are your posts.  If you go through your game thread posts, I'm sure you'll be able to figure it out.

JVG is a f***ing idiot. Hes just saying dumb sh*t now

In short:  you drop an F-bomb every 10 posts or so.  This blog doesn't allow swearing, and has never allowed swearing.  It also doesn't allow masked profanity, or excessive use of All-Caps.

Another member mentioned to you that you were probably kicked for swearing, which you called a "joke".

So, I'm not sure which staff member banned you from the game threads, but it was probably well-deserved.

It's interesting to me how passion and entitlement could look so similar to different people.

All's well that ends well, I guess.

If he wasn’t warned with a PM, let’s give him a second shot.

My curiosity is piqued at this point. Purely a social experiment. And since OP decided to open this up for public discussion as opposed to sending a PM to a mod, I'm not going to hold back at all.

The forum has rules that we all agree to. Among those rules is no profanity and no masked profanity. OP knowingly and willingly broke that rule at least a dozen times in a single thread. There's been no attempt at accountability or a display of contrition. Just a demand to be restored despite breaking the rules.

What here warrants a second chance other than the good 'ole boy mentality?

Again, this is my own curiosity.

I can't speak for other mods, but it is my understanding that the swear censor ( Edited.  Profanity and masked profanity are against forum rules and may result in discipline. ) acts as a warning in and of itself.

I agree, on thin ice, but unless things not shown happened I would hope an opportunity for a second chance would be considered.

I don’t see how “Good Ole’ Boy Mentality” is relevant here. Im going to go out on a limb and assume that the OP didn’t read through the rules and regs of the site when he joined. The swearing was a bit unnecessary, but it’s not like he was swearing at another member of the site. Seems a little harsh to ban without a warning, IMO. “Maybe the, “Edited for profanity, please don’t do it again” should read “Edited for profanity, doing so again may result in your account being banned.” That’s a clear warning.
