We've been discussing for a while how to become Unbannable on another thread. This thread is intended to let posters with prior experience becoming banned share with all of us how it's done. Enjoy!

I was banned after reporting a post where some dude was openly dealing drugs. Normally I don't involve myself with Topolotix of any kind if I can help it, but this dude was SUCH a d1ck and was creating so much discord among the regulars that I just did it.

The next day or so I was banned with a thread started in my honor.

I'm pretty sure this person just used a bunch of sock profiles to report me over and over.

Funny thing was all but maybe one person posted kind things on it. I didn't post on it until months later.

I don't feed the trolls.

When I did my original username was banned.

Thanks to those who have already contributed. To you who haven't yet contributed, on your 2nd, 3rd, whatever "life" here, due to having been banned, your input on how that happened could be useful to others.

How to be bannable?*dang, that's not even a word*

In my experience all you have to do is disagree with the trolling activities out here, speak against it .. and POOOF !!

The other day a new comer to this forum had their posts removed left and right and they were perfectly innocent posts. Honestly it makes NO sense to me whatsoever.

No, it wasn't a sock of mine, though they had been addressed as being one. LAME !!

It's not even a word? Maybe it is and maybe it ain't. Dictionaries contain many words that "didn't use to be words," that became accepted words, because a sufficient number of people used/misused them. The arbitrary way the ban hammer falls, from one poster to another, is fairly obvious to the non-myopic posters here.

My banning was because I called someone retarded, several times.
Now that word is used daily without a second thought from the mods.
Times have changed, or the mod pool was refreshed.
Never considered myself as unfortunate, I broke the rule and paid the price, no hard feelings though toward the one who swung the "Ban Hammer."
I received a warning for using the word 'fignorant'. I'll admit it was a play on words and directed to a certain poster. Apparently this poster, as well as a good number of others, hung out closely with the mods. I made that post while they were allowed to follow me from forum to forum calling me a POS and other colorful names .. Go figure !!

Here's the really funny thing about all that. When I went to pull posts to prove what I said was true and they were in fact the instigator .. all the posts (pages worth actually) went poof. What the heck?

It used to drive my father mad to hear folks use the word 'conversating'. Haha .. see, it's not a proper word yet. We were all thankful though when 'Ain't' finally made the grade.

It's all about the Reports ... Perhaps if I had REPORTED all I was subjected to, I wouldn't have made such a stink about it. However, I do NOT believe one report would have mattered .. I do believe it takes numerous reports to make any matter to the powers that be, swinging that ban hammer. I travel alone out here and it's beneficial to travel in packs when going after a certain poster. STHU and ignore the attacks is apparently the only way to survive out here because it will only get worse if we don't.

Trolls travel in packs and they love to watch the reaction when they spin a web around someone.

In this past couple of months I traveled to far away forums. Immediately I was bombarded with posts accusing me of being one of the most notorious one on that forum. Ayup, they were ripping me a new one and I hadn't done a dang thing.

I have a bad habit of speaking with most anyone that posts me and that's all it takes when other's don't care for the one I've addressed. How school yard can some get? The evidence is clear .. quite a few believe .. any enemy of my enemy is a friend of mine. I don't play that way, rather I am one that will stand up for one that is being put down and especially when it's a group against one.

I don't know how I got here.
Am I becoming bannable?
I must have pulled the wrong lever.

I believe you are safe. It's not often one that has a profile active
that many years is banned. Recently though a poster with nearly
100,000 posts was removed and dang, what a show that was.

Peace :)

Oh and you folks hammering away on those icons are wasting your time. That won't get anyone banned and if anything it points out who the untouchable trolls are.

Dare to speak, dare to speak .. the banning only hurts for a short time. Teehehee

That's cool. Honestly though, I really don't know how I got here. This and the other thread; "how to become unbannable" came up all on their own. Very weird.

I wonder if it still bothers him. It would sorta bother me If I were to be banned but only because the things I post are nowhere near as bad as some of the things I read on topix.

2) agree/disagree with gay subjects, which may offend a moderator
3) any other silly thing which may or offend a moderator!
