Let's see here, I've been moderated for not being able to read someone's mind in order to discontinue posting on their wall. (StarOcean was the mod)

I've also been moderated for making a completely valid statement about the anti-science agenda from evangelical Christians.(Super_Boom culprit)

I find it absolutely perplexing that my first ban was 7 days as well. That mod (Star Ocean) is clearly emotionally unstable to have placed such a harsh ban on me for his own blunder.

The progressive system is absolutely atrocious. It's akin to committing three counts of petty theft and receiving a life sentence. Punishment fits the crime, it doesn't scale arbitrarily.

Explain your logic please. This should be hilarious to read.

I'm not sure what else to say.  Mods do too much moderating.  Like I said, I don't even know why some of these comments are being moderated.  I see a note, and can't see anything wrong with the comments.

Agreed 100%.
I have seen some pretty (In my eyes) stupid moderations for relatively benign statements. - Sometimes even when the poster was being factually accurate.

If anyone comes across any of these, post 'em. Perhaps we did moderate harshly (or unnecessarily). I'd like to see examples, though.

You were banned for this post. Nowhere in there are you specifying evangelical Christians, or fundamentalist, or any type of extreme. You're making a jab at an entire belief system, and that absolutely isn't okay. Heck, it's the first example listed in Rule 13.

Like it or not...this forum is welcome to users of all political and religious beliefs...and that won't change.

Do mods censor wall posts now (as in: erase what they don't like)?

Unless it's spam from a bot, I haven't heard of this happening. What's the context?

What are you referring to? The mods shouldnt be deleting anything that is moderable unless its nsfw or spam.



I remember that time when they banned that poor bloke for 5 days because he made a lighthearted joke that could've been interpreted in any way. The mod's rational was that the person obviously hated the Nintendo Switch. That bloke went on to be one of the first people on this forum to preorder a Switch.

So yeah, sometimes mods moderate too much. Though I also blame the report system which is obviously flawed.

Do you have to read peoples minds to know if you are bothering them or not?

 

What about the Anti Christian/religious agenda plaguing the internet and especially this site?

Lets say  you threaten another users life, should that just be a day ban or longer? Obviously they thought your seven day ban was justified. Could you post the actual reason for the moderation that can be found in your mod report on your profile so we can see what the real reason is and not just take your word for it.

Shouldn't be calling mods emotionally unstable mate.

While one can feel for this specific poor bloke and his intentions for posting, using (future) console ownership as justification for trolling is incredibly flawed. Right now I am getting flashbacks of people who seriously said that they own a Wii, so they can bash it all they want. Of course this goes for any console, so just because someone owns a PS4 and XB1, for example, but repeatedly slams the PS4 in his posts, doesn't mean that such behavior should be tolerated and exempt from moderation.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.
