Default Re: Why is Darkblade banned?

actually I count 11 moderators

99nasha, Lurkswithin, SetiShock, Maurice, Wombat, Root, Matt, David_Lindon, Lord Kalthorn, David Brand, ~Mr Mix~...

all but the last three have been on here just about everyday of the last week...
Cept me because I wasn't online at all over the weekend.

I don't think that shows weakness on the parts of the mods, I think it just shows that we live in a varied community and some are more willing to put up with more stuff than others are. some are offended by different things. therefore it's not always as much of a straight forward process to just ban a user, because some mods may feel they have done nothing wrong. and want them re-enstated.

Isn't all this posting in locked threads abusing powers?

I didn’t fight my way to the top of the food chain to be a vegetarian…
Im sick of people saying 'dont waste paper'. If trees wanted to live, they'd all carry guns.

Haha, probably.

I still stand by the fact that a Moderator should Moderate. Banning long time users and making others feel like not staying because they don't conform to this new Tyranical System is not Moderating, it is dealing in simple black and white; Moderating deals with the Colours because you have to Moderate, allowing the Admin to work in black and white.

If a Moderator cannot handle people thinking he isn't doing a good job, then he has a problem, because it is going to happen. We had that problem with DarkBlade before, when he felt nobody thought he was doing a good job. He at least, did not ban people for that feeling.

There's always a user strong enough to stand up to this type of system, and this Forum has a lot of them. Eventually there will be nobody to answer queries, and the 'power-hungry Moderators' whose names will go unmentionned will have nobody to wield their power upon.

A Knight is sworn to Honour. His heart knows only Virtue. His blade defends the helpless. His might upholds the Weak. His word speaks only truth. His wrath undoes the Wicked.
