    I'm banned: online dating and transexuals debate

    Not from this forum, but from this form.

    I'm not entirely surprised. The moderators seem to be suffering from some type of power sickness.

    I would like to ask if you feel the ban is warranted. It's difficult for me to take a step back and view this situation with eyes unclouded by biases.

    My post(s) can be read here, on page 7, and further comments by a moderator can be read on page 8.

    Then, afew minutes ago, I received a private message from another moderator that states:

    Dear Slider,

    You have received an infraction at Penny Arcade Forums.

    Reason: Serious offense
    -------
    you don't seem to have what it takes to contribute constructively to our online community nor hew to the simple rules we ask you to respect. you may find other places on the internet more accepting of your style.
    -------

    This infraction is worth 3 point(s) and may result in restricted access until it expires.

    Slider and Skycaptain? You are both prodigious idiots. Consider that fact to be official forum policy.


    All the best,

    Now, I had done nothing further, other than to "report" the offensive, personal attack by Lewie P's Stepdad, before I received this final infraction from Irond Will.

    By "simple rules," do they imply that I should not report posts that I feel are purposefully directed at me to create a feeling of personal shame or hurt? Should I be okay with being referred to as a "prodigious idiot" by a moderator?

    name calling, especially by a moderator and ESPECIALLY when it's unprovoked, is never ok.

    So let me get this straight

    - somebody made a post which you think is an attack directed at you
    - you report that post
    - the moderator gave you an infraction because you report that post

    ????

    whauh.

    I don't really know what you are looking for in us, because I'm sure you already know that nobody here has the power to influence anything in other forums. Validation and reassurance that you did nothing wrong, perhaps? I know it sucks, but the people in power can do anything they want, even if it's arbitrary and totally douchey. The best you can do is to let go and spend your online time somewhere else.

    The parties involved think I did something wrong. Yes, I suppose I'm looking for reassurance that I did nothing wrong.

    I read their forum rules, specifically, the rules that say "don't be a dick, don't troll, and DO use the report button."

    The moderator who called me an idiot is breaking their own rules. The only rule I saw that I may have broken was the rule that said not to derail topics. But, even then it's a weak reason to issue me a "serious infraction."

    You should report the moderator to another moderator or, if their is such a thing on that forum, someone else who has higher authority. That is, if you still choose to post their. Definitely report the moderator, and if it doesn't do much then your better off being somewhere else without power-hungry people.

    I'm highly suspicious that there is some power play/inner politics at work here that you don't know about. Utterly detestable. Tread carefully.

    I don't know anything about that.

    One time, this guy replied to one of my posts and said, "Guys, don't listen to him. He's a troll."

    I got angry and called him a troll, his mom a troll, etc...but I got issued a "serious infraction" and he didn't.

    Then, this last time, I posted in the online dating thread about how I think it's wrong that transexuals lie about who they are in order to get dates with straight guys, because I don't want to be involved with liars or transexuals.

    So, that moderator calls me an idiot, I report him, and then get issued a second "serious infraction."

    Am I missing something?

    It's funny. It's like, really? Your gonna get power hungry over a forum? I guess people will take what they can get when it comes to control/power. =/

    edit: Trannies are awesome, don't hate <3

    re-edit: Would you staple your dark secrets to your shirt in order to be "honest"? :)

    They might be, but I don't have to agree with their lifestyle. Can't I have an opinion?

    Anyway, thanks.

    Ofcourse, you're perfectly entitled to your own opinions. :) I just hope one day you can understand that transgender/transsexual aren't trying to trick or confuse people. The have to deal with a great amount of rejection from society and from people of all sorts of walks of life. They just want a chance to be happy, just like you and I. :)
