What is wrong with the moderators?
 
2 Attachment(s)
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

I recently got 2 warning points for posting pictures of my daughter. It took the mods 4 days to realize there was nothing wrong with the pictures and returned them.

Unforunately, your experience is not unique. :(

I'd feel better at Mac's


I realize I asked for the 2 warnings for posting things like " swollen uterus".

However, saying that I was retarded and also posting Me We Todd Did as my user title is IMO not a warnable offense....

The Mods can even attack a personal blog? WOW

I've edited my original post and removed anything that could be construed as offensive.
here it is:

I'm offended that the moderator is offended. Thanks for the real warning, now our group of friends will how hours of fun talking about the whole ridiculous event. I'm really disappointed how over-sensitive people are.
