Agreed - and pretty much no-one gets points without someone's sensitive skin being prickled..

The fault isn't the mods (although they quite often react over sensitively to me), but that numbers seem to think reporting is part of the game of 'scoring over the other guy'.

My opinion...

One would think that what your point was, was what you explicitly stated.

exactly. Getting a point is not a major screw up even if it does break the rules as interpreted by the mods on this forum. It's usually a result of someone getting their feeling hurt on an internet forum and then telling on them.

I would consider a terrible screw up as something that results in an instant ban. Not a tit-for-tat single point for what could be a questionable "personal attack".

However, please feel free to continue reporting anything/everything that I post which you consider breaks the rules. If it breaks the rules, I'll edit it.

The Mods have never commented one way or the other, on any reporting that I have done.

If you have received warnings, that you believe are unjustified, you can always appeal them, if you haven't yet edited your post to remove the existing warning. Various LTUP posters have successfully appealed warnings by this method.

As for myself, every time that I was warned, I acknowledged that I had violated a rule so I didn't bother. No sense in annoying the mods. Remember Will Haney.

PS. I don't know who reported my posts, and I don't care. Probably wasn't the person I would first think of, and who cares, it violated a rule, therefore was warned.
Top post that accurately describes the intended mode of operation of the forum.

I received a point from the mods because I posted an entire article with a link. He said I can only post part of the article and must include the link. I thought that was a little strange....

It is just copyright law. Simple as that.

Oh I understand the intent, but I provided the link.... so I don't see what the harm was. Anyway I took the point and didn't argue, just thought I'd mention it here to see if that's happened to anyone else. I could understand if I didn't provide the link....

what's laughable is that someone reported you to the mods over that. I know rules are rules. But someone feels like he/she is the LTUP czar.

A quick check shows that ET is not currently suspended. His last posts were Nov. 11th. He made 29 posts that day.

Yeah, that's a pretty lame report IMHO. Somebody dinged reported a post of mine for the same reason. Leave it to conservatives to whine about self-sufficiency and then run to authorities when they don't get their way.
