Even if what you're saying is true, how does that translate into weekly bans for differing opinions, though?

Because the problem here always were different opinions. Different opinion about somebody liking/disliking nintendo and about somebody who disagree with his topic got closed for no real reasons.

That are just 2 example i can remember right now, i also dont see ALL bans on this forums as well (because im not daily here). But often when im here and i see a ban thats not for a good reasons (like heavy insulting people).

 

I just found one if mine mentioned examples: http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/thread.php?id=214380&page=4

That's not part of your initial post saying people get banned for their opinions weekly. They aren't. You can't be modded for having a differing opinion, but you can for how you present that said opinion. In the case of the locked thread above -you aren't allowed to complain about a moderation and make it into a thread. You contact a mod or a head mod (or the mod email I guess) and go from there. He violated a rule and had his thread thusly locked.

if i remember right he contacted the mod and also emailed the vg chartz superamdin (without getting replys).

Also the topic WASNT made AGAINST one specific moderator, it was more an general question but people asked him for examples.

 

As long as somebody didnt troll or insult people, i think any form of presentations should be ok. But who cares, that are just my thoughts and like i said my perception. I dont really care enough to keep this discussion. 



If you broke a written rule, you got banned for reason. If not, it seems ridiculous to get banned for that post. It was maybe a bit vague which may not be desirable in a discussion, but it's definitely not worth a permanent ban unless you've done it a lot of times and got banned for it (which I doubt).

Hey JNK, if you're going to create a new account and post on the forums with it, it's probably a good idea to avoid discussion about how much the mod team was mean and nasty to your old account.

If you wish to post here, go back to your old account. This one is getting banned.



Neogaf mods are a joke they are just stupid, Evil Lore should choose better most of them are incompetent.

I was banned back in the day for stupid reasons lol

 

It was just some weeks BTW

I think Noble got banned (not sure if it was permabanned) for some snarky comment about dancers at an after party.



You definitely weren't in the wrong, regardless of your opinions. You handled yourself correctly.



Well, this is new.

Read.

Neogaf mods have for very long been known to ban people with out reason if they don't follow the mods personal views. They've already banned several of there NPD leakers for little reason.

No, you're not wrong. Actually, I commend you for standing up to the anti-GG bulls***. Like Aquamarine said in the NPD thread, GAF is immensely hated outside of the forum and this is one of the reasons why. The kind of responses GG supporters or neutrals get are extremely cultish. The forum really wants you to buy into the GG is a misogynistic, extreme right-wing movement and not question the notion. What really cracked up me up was when several people claimed that Eron Gjoni constantly harassed Zoe Quinn despite that he's the defendant, not the plaintiff



i cant complain against the NeoGaf mod team, they bring us a lot more users
