    Just want to know, why exactly was Balerion banned?

    He spoke out too sharply to a member of the administration via PM. Didn't know that was also a bannable offense.

    Oh, sure. And those people in power may use power within the limits of their power. Some exercise it responsibly, some do not. And what, exactly, do you define as a kick? Is a kick a kick only after you have been kicked? Is the first a freebie? Some strange strategies hereabouts.

    I may just be missing something in my current state of hysteria (just got a third interview callback for this job I'm after) but uh... I don't see him on the Ban list... or even the Registered Members list, nor in the Moderator Control Panel... so yeah... maybe I'm mispelling his name? Balerion right?

    Yeah you are spelling it right, B-a-l-e-r-i-o-n. You've spelled it correctly . Apparently he was put on a three day ban. http://www.sciforums.com/banlist.php you'll find his name at the top of the List.

    It’s funny, but not unexpected. You yourself are under threat of a permanent ban from Sciforms and for just cause. So it is not surprising to see you wail and complain about Balerion’s ban. It is what you do. When I read your posts and those of Balerion they often remind me of this line from American Gangster, ““the loudest one in the room is the weakest one in the room.”. Think about it. But of course we both know you will not spend even one moment thinking about it….it’s not what you or Balerion for that matter do. Just perhaps, that is why you have trouble with the moderators. Instead of blaming and being loud, perhaps a few moments of introspection would be in order. But of course, we both know, that is just not your gig. Athletes begin with baby steps, they practice, they exercise. Exercise works…just something for you to think about. You can start with little things like getting your facts straight and stop playing schoolyard games and offering schoolyard excuses and insults.

    oh my, what did he say?
    i fail to believe the admins overreacted.
    james might be an ass but he's tolerant.

    To but it succinctly, he PM'ed a moderator and told them to, and I quote, "Fuck Off"... pretty much asking for a booting, especially with existing infractions.

    Saturnine, thank you - for some reason I immediately thought perm ban and was looking at that list XD

    In your many threads "going at it" with other posters, you are often the loudest one in the room. Think about it.

    How about you think about it? Pull the log out of your eye before you worry the splinters in someone else's eye.

    Hah! I wondered when you might get round to this. I complain about the banning of other individuals when threatened with a ban? Okay.

    I did not spend even one moment thinking about it. It is not what I do.

    Some of the moderators. Two, specifically. I'm sure it's just me though.

    First joe, it ain't quite so: you don't exactly have all the new details.

    Second, ad hominem is a violation of site rules, isn't it? It's petty stuff, but something to think about, as you say.

    Third: just to be clear, you are really not the person to be making these arguments.

    I can't see his infractions and since when is "FO" on PM bannable? It isn't in the public eye, and I've got all kinds of vicious stuff written to me via PM. When they say "keep it off the boards", that's where it's supposed to go. Is this now new ground for leveling infractions?

    Essentially, his banning appears to have been because he protested too strongly to Tiassa's threat to ban me on the "Syrian Revolution thread". That initial charge being juust a bit unjust, I can see why he reacted.

    It's more that, as far as I can tell, the private message consisted of just "F off" and nothing more. If there had been some kind of context to it then, ya know, the whole "tough skin" and what not... but that's just my take on it.

    I can see him on the ban list.
    Maybe you can only see him on the ban list if he's insulted you at some point.

    Ermm what? I think I would rather grow balls and douse them in petrol and set them on fire Leopold.

    Considering the only reason Geoff is not banned is because I spoke up for him, you and he can both go and kiss my arse.

    Him for being an ungrateful arse, you for being, well, sick.

    If people wish to know or understand regarding Balerion.

    He was issued a warning. His response to that warning via PM was not the best and so he was banned due to the amount of points he had accrued and what had happened immediately prior to that. Things do not happen in a vacuum on this site.

    To everyone, yes, you can be banned for sending abusive PM's to people. Regardless of who is on the receiving end.

    People are banned for it.

    There seems to be this bizarre belief that anything goes via PM. No it is not. There are limits and if you breach them, then yes, you will be banned.

    Had you said it to anyone who was not me, you would not be posting here ever again.

    This is what? The third time you have accused someone of something like this, without proof, and when challenged, you don't withdraw the accusation, but instead try and weasel your way out of it. You can't even bring yourself to apologise for it or say thank you when others speak up to save your ungrateful backside. Considering this is the second time you have done this to me, the first time you accused me of killing children or something along those lines, and never actually apologised or said thank you for not being banned permanently, there won't be a third time. Of that, you can be sure.
