That's your opinion of what a forum is, and that's fine. It doesn't make it so however.

Here is the definition I choose to believe:

a place, meeting, or medium where ideas and views on a particular issue can be exchanged.

I never said what a forum is, nor do I care about what you think it is.

What I'm saying is pretty easy to understand: you didn't follow the rules. Period.

the rules explicitly say:

he also said:
"His is a first post and only post in here. A fly by ad. No introduction, no threads."
which is not in the rules, but a patent fact, he only made 2 posts:
1, please buy my PC.
2, are you serious about that price.

then he said:"A lot of forums required so many posts to post ads. No fly bys."
Whilst i'm not going to go and gather evidence for you. that's also true. (not in the rules, but it would be a complete irrelevance to post up rules for other forums.

Indeed this forum does have rules... (some better enforced than others!)

that's also correct, (and not at odds with the rules.)
it's pretty much a dictionary definition that a forum is a place to meet and exchange ideas.

That's not going to happen.


in reality, it is simple.
I understand what you are saying:
even if a guy just shows up apparently just trying to post an advert and make a quick buck. that's no reason to yank on his chain...

you're saying, we should take note of:

Harassment, flaming, stalking or predatory behavior will not be tolerated.
The thing is, I don't read their posts like that. - and clearly none of the other moderators read it that way either. (as the post is still here)

and I don't think it's necessarily bad to give some leeway here:

especially when considering this part:

Ads may be removed by our staff at any time for any reason.
The first post breaks those rules. not just in a way that messing with someone might be understood as "harassment" but in a "literal" "black and white"
-don't post ebay links -Oh there one is!,
post a picture - Oh there one isn't!

kind of way.

but it was allowed to stay...

see this rule:

Also... be careful what you wish for. when you start calling out members by name saying that they should be banned.

that come pretty close in a "literal, I'm going to read black and white and not bother to think about the 'intent' of the rules" reading to violating.

"Do not engage in personal attacks"
"Stay on topic by keeping discussions relevant and on track."


I'm going to save you breaking this rule:
Public discussion about moderation or moderator decisions is not allowed.

by locking this thread now.
