So I got warned for replying in an only slightly more polite fashion (as in, more "where the hell do you get off saying that shit?" than the outright insults to which he resorted) to some yutz who flamed me. Okay, my bad there. And they warned him as well, so no big deal.
Then, some troll jumps in the thread...except his initial post didn't look trollish, just ignorant and/or oblivious. I reply to him quite civilly. First he ad hominems me; then, he edits the post as to make it an outright flame. I report him; he gets warned.
He proceeds to whine about his warning (which is a violation of the rules) and flame me again. I report those posts, too, but pay him no further attention otherwise.
And...what the hell happens? We both get suspended for a day for "not listening to mod warnings."
Mind you, it's only a day. I still felt the need to appeal it on principle, because...they just either suspended me for reporting flame/troll posts, or for getting flamed.
Well, that, or...well, in one of the flame posts, he claimed that he was racking up the infractions while I was "talking shit" and getting away with it, and theorized that it was just because I was more active there. (None of which, for the record, was true; again, I only replied to him once, and was perfectly civil about it.) But it makes me suspect that they may have been trying make an example of me to "prove" that post count has nothing to do with it.
Ironically, they made it look like conduct has nothing to do with it, either. What the hell. And in before some dickweed coming here to gloat.
