There are many times when you may need to contact a staff member here. Asking about a ban, infraction, BST product or new rule is common. I don't mind fielding these questions, in fact, I welcome it. With that being said, don't forget your manners when communicating with us. I don't care if we are talking over IM/IRC/PM/Email, if you outright disrespect me, I'll ban you for it. It makes no difference how many posts you have or what your status is here. Lose your cool with me and your gone. I work really hard to get to everyone I can. I review services, BST products, Jr VIP products on top of moderating the forum. I don't have time to argue or remind people of their manners. TIP: If you have a thread deleted, receive an infraction or have a friend that got banned, contact a staff member with a respectful, well thought out comment/question and you may be surprised by our reaction. The staff doesn't get paid, we are all busy and each one of the staff has earned the respect of the community, keep in mind who your talking to when approaching us.
