I have no idea what you are talking about quite frankly. We have had to deal with countless trolls over the last year and a half, and it has been a royal pain in the you know what.
As far as this nuisance whom you covet so deeply here is why he was banned. He got a warning for language. Then another warning for abusive behaviour. Then several folks (more than 3) reported him for the same. Then over time he got NINE additional warnings from several different mods for everything from abusive behaviour, language, trolling, going off topic. At TWELVE warnings in a few months I personally gave him a timeout of week. He came back, started talking trash again to forum members who reported him, and then sent a nasty personal message to myself. At that point hopeless. Gave him a time out for a month. He came back, same toxic cycle, forum members kept reporting his insulting jokey jokester posts. Finally banned for good. And he keeps coming back like some hero being a childish nuisance in the forum of new accounts wasting everyone's time. So, I guess you're right we were impartial- in HIS favor.
Same with a few forum members- multiple warnings, and then they start howling and insulting me personally. After a warning? No timeouts, no bans. They keep up with the same behaviour, get reported by forum members. Eventurally they are given a timeout, or shown the door.
Personally I do not appreciate anyojne who is not paying attention to good work the mods are doing, and this BS about me being "too hard" on people is a joke. I know right from wrong, and how people need to conduct themselves on a public forum. One of the first rules - don't be a jerk, and then when given warnings start criticizing the mods.
That's exactly how everyone one of these players behaved. Nothing has changed in the way anyone has moderated. We're giving warnings for a reason. It is amazing to witness how miserable people get when they don't make money. That's all this is. Worry about the money, the markets, not me. I am doing my job.
Any further questions? Message me privately. This is pretty off topic @solid102. It is fun to poke at people, let's not forget about reality though. Whatever impression you have of certain forum members there is far more to the story than you know. I have shared some of that today.
Enjoy the day, enjoy making money. Anyone who wishes to respond to this post message me privately. Short of that this conversation is over. How does that sound?
