Not that I have:



NeoBorn,

You are being warned for making this post: http://ataricommunity.com/forums/showthread.php?postid=5143959#post5143959
This post is defined as Flaming!

You need to take a moment and read the rules to avoid future warnings. You can find them here: http://ataricommunity.com/rules.html

You now have 6 warning points, when you reach 15 we will automatically ban you.

Please note that due to the size of the message board our staff does not allow for appeals to warnings. You can avoid future warnings by reading the rules above.

Best Regards,
Atari Forums team.


Seems a little unfair that they basically discipline you with no way to state your case or to remove the warning points or to appeal the bs!

I say ban the Atari Nazi Forum Squad!

It's not as if they banned you without any appeal (although it does happen) - all it is is a warning. No biggie. And not very many people get banned who don't deserve it - it is pretty hard to get to 15 without being generally ignorant.

Yea they give out the stupidest warnings. I got 1 point for the message boards messing up and putting the official icon in front of one of my posts. I very well know I didn't put that icon there, I remember. It's stupid. So if more things that happen that arent my fault, I get banned? oh, ok. MAKES SENSE.

I'm not sure how giving you 6 WL points for flaming, instead of giving you 15 and an instant ban for posting offensive material, is being unfair. The link you gave was to a porn site.

Whumpmaster: You should always read the rules before posting at any forum. They are there for a reason.

Don't you think though, that anyone recently warned will be a bit biased?

Mods have bad days too... (cough...PR_Flack..cough...yesterday...cough).

Unfortunately for us, we typically hear from them when we have done something bad. I do have to hand it to Pez though, Pez is the only one that I have seen encouraging people to frag him online or posting not just to respond to accusations etc..

So, to make a long story short.... The mods are just doing their jobs. I doubt that they have a personal axe to grind. It would be wholly unprofessional.

FYI: If I had seen you post a porn link, you would have been banned instantly and I would have edited your post to mock your ignorance. Clearly, Penguin is your friend and you should count yourself lucky.

Just a note: posting porn = BAN. Period

Not hard to understand.

link removed wasn't originally a porn site. AFAIK.

*edit*
Yes, i meant not to include the first 'W'. I don't want the same thing to happen. I'll admit, i did originally just post the entire URL there - I didn't know it would automatically turn into a clickable URL if i didn't use the tags. My bad.

I agree, but only because there's no warning category for "sniveling, whiney, pansy-ass, diaper-baby histrionics"

You can't change history, and you can't assume the responsibility for what others did. You can only remember and try to make sure it doesnt't happen again...

This thread is completely Off Topic for this forum and should be deleted.

If you have gripes with Atari Forums, contact them directly.. Don't try to gain public support by berating them in their own forum.. They provide a great service here which some people use as their own personal soapbox, saying the first thing that comes to mind without regard to its effect. They have rules to keep the forum decent for ALL users, and when they are broken, the offender will pay the consequences.

Finally, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE think about what you are writing before you click Submit Reply. I've notice many users of this forum have diarrhea of the mouth (or in this case, fingers, I guess). All that comes out is crap, and lots of it.

I love UT2k4, but the attitude of some of its players leaves a sour taste in my mouth.

So you post a link to a site that has porn in it, get warned for breaking a rule, whine about it because it's unfair, get spoken back to, and now you're getting all defensive? I think you should just stop before it gets any worse...
