No one here is out to nail something to you but everyone should remember (and this is not aimed at you personally but a general comment) that moderators are people too
and they can be rubbed up the wrong way
That's basically what I thought. Neutrality? Hmm.
Surely mods should try to keep a cool head at all times and have a responsibility to set an example to us mortals; increasing a warning level over a MySpace link seems a bit obtuse, but that's not for me to say. I would have removed it if it had been pointed out verbatim (I cannot recall why I posted a MySpace link but it was probably in a discussion about an artist, so I put in their MySpace. In other words it wasn't mine or a friend's).
Realistically, by arguing about this, I'm pitching myself to get another warning. But you say that these can last for years
on end, so basically it doesn't matter at all as there's no way I'll last that long if you're warning people over such, err, innocuous actions.
Perhaps a good suggestion would be to have a set period of time before the warning level expires; that way, some people (ie. me) might start to feel like they aren't being taken for a ride by some of the mods on here (by the way, not you Tiuri). In my humble opinion, that would be a much fairer system.
The fact that the same mod, who has given me two warnings, stated earlier "give it a month or so" to another member in reference to their warning being lifted, makes me wonder if there is something "funny" going on. Especially as I've had one of them for six months now.This post has been edited by spunko2010: May 22 2007, 17:53
