Arrakis knew what he was doing when he reposted his vitriol. Maybe next time, he might think of his clan before reposting filth.
I disagree with yo ...[text shortened]... ant to act with even a shred of decency, then they deserve their punishment. End of.
Yet we let others run amuck...to spout hatred and attack only certain individuals?
I cannot speak on Arrakis's behalf of what he posted...because i never got to see it...but there is a weird bias here about what is accepted and what is not.
Sometimes the same thing that is accepted in one forum is deleted in another.
Sometimes a forum ban for saying one thing by a certain person...is overlooked by another saying it.
There should be a strict set of guidelines covering these things...to be judged ( damn I keep saying this ) without passion or prejudice.
The game mod thread got so clogged up with crap that it was unreadable. But yet people, PAYING CUSTOMERS, have the right to voice their opinion.
I think being a Mod would mean that you have to be a person of integrity...that you think of the site before your own personal agenda.
As for Arrakis getting banned from both public and private forums...why would anyone care that is not in his clan about the private forums? You don't have to read it. It means nothing to you.
If he did wrong in public then he should be charged in PUBLIC. Private matters are exactly what that states...private.
That is like getting a ticket for smoking in a restaraunt but the other stipulation is you can't smoke in your own home.
I know alot of you are from across the pond...but our Declaration and Bill of Rights mean alot to me...I look up from my computer and see them on my wall. I have two nice copies 🙂
All I am saying in this is that we need to step back and reevaluate the mod system and how it works...because if noone else has noticed...there are probs in both camps.
