What is wrong with the moderators?
I was perusing the forums last night, and came across this thread about Red61.
Now, not really knowing the guy and also not being familiar with the situation, I refrained from commenting about the discussion at hand. Now, if you read the thread, you see that red61 has left the site supposedly due to moderators getting a little overzealous (My interpretation) I wasn't sure if he ws justified or not, but I am coming to believe there may be some truth in the whole thing.
In reading the thread, someone posted "Me We Todd Did" and made a comment about being retarded. I failed to understand the significance of the statement so I posted that I must be retarded since I couldn't understand what was being said. I got warned for that. Since I felt that the warning was unwarranted, I modified my original post by adding something about the warning and that I felt it was unjustified. I woke up this morning to find that my post had been removed and I got a "real" warning point.
I also found out that because I changed my custom user title to "Me We Todd Did" I received a warning too. Now I'm really starting to get a little upset.
I then posted something to that effect and just received a warning for that too. When I modified that one and left it intact I got a "real" warning for that too.
Maybe there is something to red61's allegations after all....
In any case, I will cease my "trolling" and "obnoxious behavior" and let the easily offended power happy anonymous moderator win. since he (or she) is the one with the warning power and I enjoy this site too much to be banned for 10 days, I give up. But on my terms not theirs....
I still wonder though.....
FWIW, here are the offending posts
