And the ones that snitch them off are usually doing worse things than they are...Seniority should have no place in getting someone removed.Do we need more mods or do the ones we have need to do a better job of actually investigating claims?

If you are talking about MSO4,one of the Mods seem to favor him because he has been here for 4 years.He talks to people like dogs and is homophobic yet they skip right past him and ban whoever has made him"cry".Anyone that knows this freak knows its true.

Are the mods afraid of their snitches?

I think every forum has their pet who is also the rat.When they tell the mod on you then they are judge,jury,and executioner.Playing favories is unfair to 99% of us.

I agree with you. But the answer to your question is that if you are given a warning you will have the opportunity to say publically what you've just said about the "snitch who's doing worse things". THAT would give the possibility of an arguement and even an uprising.

Some that have been here a few years are even brassy enough to tell you that they"cant"be removed!

I don't feel anyone should be ever banned without warning, especially posters with over 500 comments.

And I agree, there are too many snitches running around, bragging of getting other posters banned.

All of the rules are listed in the TOS. They are pretty simple to understand. If you are not breaking the rules, you don't have to worry about a "snitch". If you DO break the rules, what makes you think you deserve a warning? We are not small children. We are adults who, for the most part, understand the meanings of rules and the consequences that come when we break those rules. If you get banned, I'm pretty sure you know the reason WHY. As far as posters bragging that they can get someone banned, that is an urban legend, of sorts. You can report someone you don't like 20 times a day, but, if that person is not breaking any of the rules of the TOS, you're just wasting your time.

If someone calls your wife a whore and you tell him to go screw himself ...... you get banned but he does not. That is what has happended to me. That is why I am now "grey boxing". What do you have to say about "rules & snitches" now?

I deal with it the way I chose (never mind that) but the OP has a point. A good point.

I think that you're most likely sugar-coating the post(s) that got you banned. As far as what I have to say about rules and snitches........I stand behind my previous post.

Posters with over 500 comments should know what the rules are.
If you're banned, Topix should tell you the infraction that caused it, but you usually know why you're banned.

I often wonder who is really banned? I don't see banned posters, they come back in new nick names. I'm not sure it will ever be any different until only registered members can post. Once everyone registers, the ban would hold. You see in this thread alone banning doesn't work.

Only registered members SHOULD be able to post.
