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.
