If being condescending is the only way a moderator can get their point across, perhaps being a moderator isn't a great fit for that individual.
"Sorry, your forum posting rights have been withdrawn.
A forum moderator has chosen to temporarily stop you posting to the forums. This could be for a number of reasons, but the most likely is because you are considered to be repeatedly posting abusive or inappropriate content.
Your posting rights will return on the x day of x month at xhrs''
It's ALL about interpretation, what would get you a ban in one forum may well not 'apply' elsewhere..I do know that the moderators 'stance' appears to differ from forum to forum, and that some forum very rarely witnesses the sort of material required for a ban to be considered. That being said, I do think that it requires more than one set of eyes to make such a decision...'there isn't the resource' would be the site response !? SIMPLE answer to that, 'chop 'em around'...let the moderators 'wander' instead of being tied to certain forum ? Perhaps then we'd all accept their decisions and there would be a better understanding of just what's not going to be tolerated AT ALL, and that an 'offending' poster is plainly just engaging in 'goading gone too far' ?
