the difference is when you moderator abilities are used to re-enforce you points...
Making good points without having to swear or flame makes you a good contributer
Making ponit with little or no evidence, followed by a torrent of abuse.
followed by the locking of the thread does not even make a good contibuter, let alone a good moderator.
I don't think the AMD ZEN is the only person who falls foul of this, but as the only one who is a moderator he is the only one who can be feasibly chastised, (as he has been).
frankly I like agood argument, but I don't think a good argument involves swearing, or calling people stupid, I don't think a good argument involves locking the opsts before the discussion is through.
many tmies a warning would be more appropriate.
I don't see anything wrong with disliking people, there aer people that I dislike, and people that dislike me.
however I've not banned any of them, I've not gone out of my way to piss them off, or tell them to leave.
