Question
Appeal Please

At the time I made the post NoFlyZone was on a vacation (I verified this by going to his profile and looking for "On A Vacation" and he was). He should be "fair game" and I don't believe I should have been awarded a point for the post because of the "fair game" clause in the rules.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Just to add a little more to my case NoFlyZone is On A Vacation again with a 40 point infraction.
Just in case the warning gets reversed again like last time.

I reversed the infraction due to the "fair game" rule.
