The moderator was very specific about which parts of the post violated site rules. If you wish to appeal a post in the future, do not edit it. Edited posts cannot be appealed. Click here for more information about appeals.

Do not insult/taunt other users in all caps, or mock them with sarcastic comments like "...intellectual discourse." After several chances, you have lost your ability to edit this post. I recommend you reevaluate your posting style and read the site rules.

what ?? seriously?? intellectual discourse is a banned phrase??
sarcasm is against the rules ??
my post was a RESPONSE to a post that i reported as attacking me.
in the initial report it said "provocative trolling"
it seems like a new rule is being made up for every post i make.
AGAIN, how can i prevent other users from slandering my character ?
thanks for taking the time to help me clear this up.
everyone that knows me approves of my character and i AM an asset to my local RC community as i would like to be on RC groups as well
thanks again for your time and hopefully your help

would it be a fair observation to say the rules seem to be intertwined to the point of one argument running up an UNLIMITED number of infractions?
i asked for help long ago.
thanks again

Harry I'm going to jump in here to answer your questions.

The moderator's point was that you should not insult, taunt, or mock other users.

From the rules page:
You are Responsible for Yourself
At RCGroups each user is responsible for their own posts. It is not possible, therefore, to successfully argue an appeal on the basis of what other users did prior to the action that was warned. Quoting an offensive word originally typed up by someone else will still result in an "Offensive Content" infraction. Likewise, responding to a personal attack with a personal attack is not acceptable.

These are the rules. You can't troll other users.

By reporting the post.

If a user is trolling your posts then be sure to report the offending posts and comment on the issue you are having. I know this is what you are doing so keep it up. Do no PM the moderators or admins. Our mods read every report. I will monitor this situation as well.
