I thought the mods here were tough. Heck at least here they're rational. I subcribe to Gamespot.com. That means I pay them for quicker downloads forums ad alike. Someone posted a humorous response to a very inane post and I responded with a "+1". For my response my post got deleted and I got a warning.

Needless to say I was furious. I wrote them a rather pointed query as to why +1 is considered spam. Their response was a very snotty, "it added nothing to the topic or discourse". This was ignorant enough but the bastiches then went on to lecture me on my attitude.

"Also, don't ever come in this forum with that attitude again. You are to bring your inquires to us in a courteous fashion. This forum is a service to you, not a place for you to yell at us."

Of course, when I read the above I lost my natural mind. It took me a while but I composed the following.

"If I'm gonna get tossed and banned I'm gonna earn it!!! Where in Gods name do you folks get off warning me about MY attitude. I PAY FOR THIS SERVICE!!!! I don't cuss, I don't spam (no matter what you say a +1) is and even a cursory examination of my posts over the years will show that I try to add NOT detract from the boards I frequent. I get accused of Spamming, (which in my section of the universe means I used a post or forum as a platform to SELL something) and then the mods come on to slap me down and tell me to watch my language and attitude.
Well let me tell you folks one thing. I'm a man fully grown, I've served my country in field and garrison, in peace and war and I'll be damned if some PFK is gonna take MY MONEY and then lecture me on my attitude. You wanna toss me... fine, but it's gonna be for something I've actually done and not some imaginary infraction like a +1. You may scare the average 12 year old with that kinda bullying but it don't fly here. Yeah it's your virtual world ya little Stalinist punks but you gotta leave it sometime...

Now Go On.. Do your Worst!!!!

Well, I guess I won't be posting there again. Thanks BearCat and Ivan for being grown adults.

GO, Worf101 !

Yea, some of these other forum mods do get a bit full of themselves and I do think that they`re often used to dealing with children, so when an Adult comes along they get `disrespectful` and come out with less than an appropriate ruling, not realising they`re dealing with an adult.

Sometimes these guys do need a good yelling at so they realise that they`re actually dealing with someone older than 15.

The Oblivion forums are a bit like this - it`s filled mostly with annoying children.

Kinda but I was really trying to give them a taste of their own medicine. Bullies fall apart wen confronted by someone willing to stand up to them. As Hitler said, had the French and British smacked him after Czechoslovakia he'd "still be bouncing across Europe".

Now there's nothing I could've done to them physically, but I could've gone to their bosses and informed them how a paying, adult member of their community was being treated and raised one holy stink. I can holla with the best of em. I hate bullies, petty bureaucrats, cloying politicians and petite Napoleans of any stripe.

Thanks for the love M8's

lol you show em. Those mods are probably 16 year old pimple face nerds with nothing better to do than bully people around on forums as a way to compensate for their miserable second-class citizenship in the high school hierarchy system.

At least we know Ivan is an old, wise, fat geezer who is probably well traveled and knows of the world more than many, which makes him more qualified for the position than those smacktards.

Hey Worf, betchya felt a bit better afterwards, right?

Reminds me, just a few days ago I figured it was time to clear the air with my boss. I set the stage for a fight. We had a 2 hours shouting match. I felt so much better afterwards, not only cause I was right on every point, but also the big hug I received in the end.

BTW, relax Megile; my boss is a female and very attractive. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Yeth I did. But I normally don't like fighting with folks but I do love confronting bullies. I work in the State Capital of New York, the place is rife with trumped up political hacks who wouldn't be recognized in their own districts if they walked around nekid with their butts on fire. But somehow, we're supposed to know who they are and kowtow... Puhlease. I don't do it here, and I'm certainly not gonna do it online.

Just today one of my threads from LockOn forum just disappeared in a blink of an eye with any explanation what so ever.

I still think it's a simply system Error and e-mailed the webmaster asking if I should re-post, and sure hope it was not deliberate.

Another good place highlighting how good we have things at this forum regarding moderators is the Age of Empires 3 forum, where the moderators are extremely slack, and it has just turned into a No rush vs Rush handbags at 20 paces situation. Good fun if you enjoy flaming but not if you want to discuss the game.

I agree completely WTE_Googly,

Mods here are fair and don't take sides with individuals or issues.

LockOn forum on the other hand has degraded into a good old boys club moderated entirely to the liking of one group.

As soon as they disagree with what ever the topic is, they just lock it with out any warning or explanation. Not right.

What I have heard and seen from reading old old post the Mods have come along way. What some posters got away with in the old days was outrageous, yet others who did less were given the 'so long, bye, bye'. Questionable moderation, for sure.
