    You got caught up in a larger infraction-fest that consumed that entire thread.

    You were probably infracted due to comments made in the social group suggesting that dennis be singled out and made the next target of your group's affection. That's where the line gets crossed from "good zing" to "deliberate meddling".

    The moderation staff as a group has had several discussions since then on rule enforcement and general site cohesion, so hopefully matters like that will be handled a little more effectively in the future.

    Well at least it makes thing interesting on the site from time to time. People are afraid to post because they don't want to get banned. Way to go on that one. The fact that we have to go elsewhere just makes us want to push. Most times we are just fine though, you make us out to be this terrible group that only wants to cause problems. That's not what BT is about but somehow your staff lost track of that and that is why we push...

    Circular reasoning is circular.

    We have to push the rules to make things interesting but we're afraid to post because we'll get banned so we go somewhere else which makes us want to push the rules to make things interesting but we're afraid to post because we'll get banned so we go somewhere else which makes us want to push the rules to make things interesting....

    I can do without this brand of "interesting".

    Well if this mythical contingent of 3.8 users wants to come forward and tell me how they're scared of being banned, I'm all ears.

    Until then...

    Then perhaps you shouldn't bring up such fallacies as cornerstones of your argument? :confused:

    If someone wanted to bring the issue to you, they would. I'm not going to be the guy to do it. Just thought you'd be interested to know that tidbit, maybe you don't care...

    Nothing on this? Nikko, do you really think these guys are doing their job? One would think a moderator would contribute more to their section...

    lol BT is butthurt. I'll contribute from a third Person POV. It is true that BT has been provoked by other members to go "out of hand" but frankly you can't say you guys are surprised. You've made yourself "high profile" and you can't get away with the little things that most can get away with. Especially after instigating certain reactions from certain members; it seems once BT found out some members(like kgmx) get butthurt over their existence, their thread starting spiked. I really don't know if you are being treated unfairly, but if you feel you are maybe flying under the radar for a bit might help.

    Hold up there buddy, Im not butthurt at all about their existence. The fact that they think they're that much better than other internet people just because of two letters is my problem with them. They are no better than anyone else here. Some people can be awesome without the need of two letters. Taylor02GT, Greensteeda, Zero are an example. They are just a few of the many internet-cool people without the need of a crutch that is 18 members tall.

    They don't though. They do that to screw with people. People just don't get the joke.

    Pushing buttons backed up with immaturity, internet anonymity, and a mob mentality can cause people to act up in a situation where they normally wouldn't react within a certain scope.

    Its one of the flaws with Social Groups.


    Lets bring this back to basics, treat people with respect, be respectful of others and we wouldn't be having this discussion, or rules for that matter.

    Nah...go to your user profile (As in click your name in the thread). There will be a tab called Infractions. On the circled part you can view all your infractions.
