    Hello,

    As you can see I've been a member here for a while. I don't expect special treatment or anything and I like to believe I have followed all of the rules. I really enjoy this forum. I'm not here to spam or scam anyone. Anyways, to my point. I was a donor to this site, as you can see that under my name it clearly says "donor", maybe that expired at some point, I'm not sure of that. Recently I had another member, a newbie with virtually no reputation whatsoever say that I scammed him for $5. I was quick to defend myself. I didn't start a flame war and I didn't claim anything false. I did flag their posts however because they were lying. Doing this I must have ended up on a mod's radar. bz is the mod in question. He decided I needed an infraction because I had a signature in my footer and I wasn't a donor. I explained why I believed myself to be a donor, like I said you can look under my name and see "donor". It may have been a year ago or more though. My account clearly says "donor". Even in the screenshot they sent me it says this. I then had several of my posts deleted and I am blocked from posting in certain forums here. If this is how donors and regulars of this forum are treated I would rather not donate again and will go elsewhere. It's rude and unwarranted. With that said I hope I can get this resolved. If mods decide I need to be banned then so be it. I spoke my mind.

    It seems the mods here really don't mess around. I can see why you're frustrated, but in this kind of atmosphere you really have to play by the strict rules or you'll be gone. If it wasn't for those rules and strict mods, this website would suck. I'm sorry you're having trouble, but I would just forget about it and move on.

    Life is unfair and bhw sometimes shows that as well. You can simply discuss the issue with the mods and if no reply or no solution then think about the other things.

    About donating or not, thats your choice entirely. I personally do not believe that you need to pay because you have obtained knowledge. If knowledge is the currency, then give back in knowledge rather than in the form of donations.

    In any case, don't over stress.

    PS:
    Spaces along your post will make it visible and readable.

    Get real dude.. Your vip subscription expired and your privileges did too, what to complain about it? You want to have your link in your sig then renew your subscription. The badge under your name may be a glitch by the system but you are well aware that you are no longer a vip.

    You should have explained situation to an Admin, not post shit about a Mod here

    They have lot of work and sometimes make mistakes, it's not a good move posting this here

    Just my 2 cents

    I think my posts are actually still up. That may have been a mistake. Seems one I thought had been deleted is still there.

    Absolutey, I agree and I have no problem doing that. That's not the issue however.

    Hey, it happens. I got nailed on a infraction because of political comments; in fact it was other member busily flaming each other while I was trying to add a little perspective and sanity to the argument. In any case I got nailed with the others, tried to appeal to the Admins but got no response. The infraction last 6 months and I doubt that I will get in trouble again so I'll just wait it out. Life is sometimes unfair but there is no sense in whining about it.

    all ille say is if you have beef with a high ranking member
    above you - way above you - best to keep your thoughts
    to yourself or pm them - doing it publicly can only end in
    a car crash . on any forum some like you some dont, deal with
    it and forget it, sticks and stones and all that. i have an old saying

    people can call me what they like
    as long as they dont call me to late for my dinner .

    Let it go man. Stirring the pot will get you nowhere and it was no big deal to begin with. You probably made it worse now. What I would have done is contact the mod in question and very politely ask why you received an infraction.

    Then you could have opened the door to a discussion and be able to defend yourself. This would have been handled in private and would have been much more productive. Now since you whined about it to the general public it is now another matter and prob will not end well.

    Whinning around in public can only make things worse. Use PMs. Mods are human beings :).

    I agree. I have deleted my comment and it's being resolved.

    Unedited for clarity. Your self-entitlement and sensitivity aren't our responsibility. You weren't bullied, you weren't disrespected, you weren't punished, random threads of yours weren't deleted, and everything was explained to you. The infraction was reversed the second you confirmed the account, and as soon as I'm done looking into the accusation you'll probably have your affiliate thread back.

    I don't feel self entitled, maybe sensitive though. I hadn't done anything wrong. I was mistaken about the threads being deleted. What exactly does my affiliate thread have to do with this? I'm just curious.

    Well I guess it's being resolved here. Either way, thanks for helping. I'm far from feeling self entitled and don't want nor expect special treatment. That's not what I'm about. I deal with others with respect and expect the same. That's all.

    Fair question, and I'll answer in hopes of it being an object lesson to others.

    If you were involved in a situation where someone got stiffed for a small fee what's to say you wouldn't stiff someone for a larger amount? It's a preventative measure taken during investigation. I often do this with shitlist threads and massive BST complaints. I don't take either side in a dispute until I have enough information to ascertain where the responsibility lay, and as such nobody gets the benefit of the doubt with me because we deal with massive amounts of fraud and this industry is ripe with nefarious intent. It's not a personal thing.
