The moderating team here so far has seemed pretty reasonable and fairly hands off. And since I haven't really seen any mods even participating in discussions, things feel fairly unbiased as well.

As for tolerance, I mean in many forums, complaining about a temporary ban or trying to bypass a ban would result in a perma ban. This thread hasn't been locked yet and no one seems to be suspended yet so...

This does make me realize though, this forum doesn't have an off topic section for general discussion.

I didn't question the intention of the moderators, I also admitted that it was my wrong doing. Sometimes a word of warning is can be enough but this is absolutely up to the moderators as handling so many OT posts can become cumbersome.

Moderators here offer some free service to us and I personally don't expect them to accomodate for my silly posts if it is OT or they don't like it.

I will never know but my humble guess is that it was a nono joke. So we can go OT every now and then but but not in the "nono" category ...

MacMacMac was sadly banned. Very unfair imo. The snowflake by the name of "MelodicRevengexX" couldn't take a joke.

AND a huge screw you to everyone who attempted to bully me in this post and the other post someone made, and be delusional and lie and say that I SOMEHOW started being rude first... I guess you're all cool with just making stuff up and sharing the made up experiance together like a bunch of psychopaths? LOL Is this the new version of the Mandela effect? Haha Lastly, at the person who said I did no research, OF COURSE I didn't do much research... WHY do you think I'm asking Q U E S T I O N S here?? It's part of my RESEARCH. LOL Morons. I swear. lol Also at the old person. Ok Boomer.

Too many trolls and extremely delusional fragile keyboard warriors in the comments.
Seems a bit hypocritical...

what no lifed, sad, sad losers those people are. Haha Sticks and stones as they say, I'm not really too bothered as I have thick skin.
Yeah bud, I can tell you have thick skin due to the essay you replied with.
I said it in the original post and i'll say it again...
It's amazing how much can be made up in the mind when someone feels offended.

I thought his ban was temporary. Given 'time off' doesn't sound like it's permanent to me. He's just in time out. 🤣🤣🤣

I don't understand how this is funny at all. Is there a need for people with low iq scores to automatically add 3-6 emojis at the end of every single sentence they write?

I won't speak for others, but I find that hijacking the discussions too often by posting sarcastic OT content devolves from adding the occassional welcome humor to annoying interference with the exchange of ideas.


Not logging in very often, but I will receive PMs.

As a service to all participants and all who may participate in this thread I am closing it.

Why? Because threads about people getting banned and whether or not people approve of it almost always go south and end badly. And when they end badly it often results in people getting banned. Sometimes permanently banned, not just a time out.

You can take this as a hint that topics such as these are frowned upon.

P.S. People have tried to circumvent time outs by creating second accounts. They get caught and then temporary time-outs turn into permanent bans.
