Ev, seriously, it's a web forum.
You know how silly Pete's accusations of blood libel and paranoid fears of anti-Pete cabals sound? Things like "Javelin has forever lost my trust..." based on an email exchange, while I know they're intended to convey some sense of the seriousness of the situation from your perspective, just make you seem really goofy.

Eh, I dunno, the more I read, the more this makes sense to me. At first, I didn't know many details.

I don't see why we can't just update the rules at the very least... it does seem a little unfair to be suspending people for things that they didn't have any reason to suspect would get them banned (even if only temporarily).

I love how we get to observe the inner workings of a public whine.

Wow. And we were having some fun for awhile. Then we went back to taking this shyte seriously....

You get banned for a week or a month, whippee. Get over it. Hey, mod would you ban me? Please? I promise I'll do something really really bad.

Egos get bruised sometimes.

They heal if you stop picking at the injury... if not, it just gets worse.

As he shut the door, he saw the object of his desire in the mirror, a mote lodged in it's yearning creaminess. Slowly, tentatively, he extended a finger to probe the pussy area, hoping to finally find the mote in all the confusion, knowing that it would take everything to a whole new level....

"Ah, beeer..."

And why beholdest thou the Molson that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the Jim Beam that is in thine own eye?

"*shrug* I didn't, because the user agreement and rules specifically refer to "posts" being moderated."

So, after being a jerk in public and being told to stop, you decided to be a jerk in private, in the process indicating you would continue being a jerk in public, and got sent off to jail.

But someone forgot to rad you your Miranda rights and you're back on the streets kicking up sand again.

And the prosecuting attorney decides that this time he'll make the case solid and nail you hard next time you offend.

Repeat offenders always blame the judge...

"Coolant or carbon?"

Haven't heard *that* in a grocery store checkout lane in a while...
