A Unfair Banning

Postby DawnXEye11 » 16 May 2016 20:23

Okay. So I was banned from a website for no reason. Apparently I was arguing with staff which can get you banned. But I wasn't arguing with her. They abused their power and banned me for no reason. 

This is the reason he gave me for banning me. 
4. Arguing With Staff 
Arguing with staff decisions in open threads is not permitted. If you disagree with a staff decision (whether directed at you or someone else) post a thread in the Talk To Staff section or send a Private Message to either the staff-member you disagree with or the forum administrator. 

I was not arguing with her in an open thread. I private messaged her and was talking to her because she is always on my case to change my gif.

Than this happened. I posted this on a rant thread and she replied to it. No one told her to reply. 
Below is what I commented just to rant. Not even mentioning her name. 
"Stop asking me to change my signature. Its getting annoying. Please jump on other people other than me." 
Than she replied 
"Lol, well then stop making it bigger than the limit. Not that hard. And next time if you have a gripe, post in TTS." 

Number 1 
I went to the thread so I wouldn't have to talk to her. 
Number 2 
I did not want to talk with their staff.So I said what is written below 
"Last time you told me 200 was fine. If I had the message I would show you but I deleted it months ago.  Also, I can post it here if I want to. You can't tell me not to post it here. Feel free to forcefully delete my signature if you want because I'm not going to change it. I followed your rule when making the gif. You jumping on me because of my gif is one of the reasons I made it." 

I got points taken off for this and for sarcastically saying in a "why are you happy today?"thread 
"I got a pm for having a big gif again. Think this is the third time. Best day ever.xD" 

How is that arguing with staff? Apparently the right to speak your mind is arguing. 

Than after responding to someone who wanted to know what happened the staff banned me. I said whats below. 

"But what was unprofessional was that I got points off for saying it made me happy( sarcastically) and that I somehow revealed what was our buisiness. I didn't even state her name. She replied to me on the rant thread.Okay. Im done now.>.>" 

So apparently this is arguing too. Even after I changed my avatar. In the end they only chose to ban me because of how close they are. The reasons they gave me were not justified.
I could care less now but i want to know what others think about it.

I think I will. The admins are dictators. If you say something they don't agree with they jump you just to ban you. : P
Below is one of their rules
"Openly disagreeing with the rules or staff action(s) is strictly forbidden."
Disagreeing with them is apparently forbidden because everything they do is perfect.To be honest the only thing that I cared about was that I liked a few people on that site. But now I can not talk to them because I'm temporary banned. :/ Sucks cause, I have no other way of talking to them and I doubt they will find me.

You're a revolutionary, my friend. And you preach freedom. They definitely hate that. They banned you for fear that others might follow you. If that happened, their regime would collapse. 8-)

I'm glad someone understands. : ) Yeah, that would happen if they didn't have that rule. Its too bad they choose rules over whats right though.

^^Bingo! You said it all. Too many zombies abiding by their tyrannical code of conduct. By the way, you're talking to someone who's been banned from quite a few sites. I could attempt to list them for you: Astral Viewers (of which I was a Mod); Spiritual Forums; Astral Pulse; Astral Dynamics; Explorations of Consciousness; My Big Toe; another Astral whatever-the-fuck; a Christian site etc.

And you know what? If they couldn't handle me, fuck them. If you have to disagree in somebody else's territory, you disagree. They've lost something of value while me and you insist on being our own person. In retrospect, I also grew as a person. 8-)

Wow, thats a lot of sites. Now I know you definetly understand what I mean. I also think it would be right for them to just let us disagree without them butting in.Still, I don't mind being banned either anymore. It made me see the twisted side of them that I couldn't see before and just like you've grown, I too feel I have grown as a person. But I must admit I'm tempted to go back only to talk to the people that I liked on that site. Still I will stay here since I see this place has great people too. ^w^

That's the spirit, brother. I know what you mean about being deprived of socialising with cyber-friends. The mods have killed any chances of interesting conversations that would have naturally developed---discourses where people disagree, debate and make the whole experience colourfully worthwhile.

It hurts to be banned even more when your mates are trying to figure out what's happening and you don't get a chance to explain. I was even more obsessive than you about exacting my revenge by saying my piece. I went as far as trying different servers in order to access their sites under different pseudonyms.

One poor innocent fella was even accused by Admin of being me! Imagine that! And once I got in a few times, I'd let rip and threaten to bring the whole site down whilst reassuring members that they'd be better off without it. That's how angry I was ... :sad:

Well, I hope your friends find this and read it. On the bright side, you will definitely be allowed to breathe here. :-)

Most people, unless they are hermits, have to deal with a multitude of sizes and flavors of rules, as they travel through life. Some people seem to enjoy conflict, and they feel annoyed if they don't always get their own way.

I figure, don't sweat the small stuff. I prefer to save my energy for big, important injustices. Being on the other side of the fence, as a parent, or a website administrator, or other type of boss can present challenges regarding rule-setting and enforcing.

It seems to me that most visitors to this website - world-of-lucid-dreaming.com - are well behaved and considerate. I hope it stays that way.

I don't think its about always getting your way and I understand that there are different rules in different places. But the sad truth are some are ridiculous and can be stretched just to enforce whatever action the person wants to make. I prefer to focus on more important issues too but who says you can't blog or write about even a small injustice? I hope it stays peaceful,well behaved as well as fair too.When you say some people enjoy conflict who are you referring to?I don't see why you brought that up.
