Ah well, I'm sure you'll get over it. smile.gif

It's not as if you did anything to deserve 4 of the 5 stars anyway.

Maybe now people will stop accusing me of giving her one for just being a girl, which never happened.

Que? How does the karma being removed mean it was given for the best of reasons? I don't know whether bendy got karma for being a girl or not, nor do I care, but having it taken away doesn't resolve the issue of why it was given.

It may have been a bit harsh, but it could have been worse. Either way, anyone starting to get a bit pissed off by internet drama yet? confused.gif

I didn't laugh either.

I think that taking all five away for a post is a little too far, considering there was no warning whatsoever. If a warning was involved, maybe this situation would have come out better. But this, this is just not fair to Bendy. confused.gif

Ya, that really wasnt funny Dome, anyway, what did Dem do to you?
And bendy, you got them removed because you told a staff member to puiss off.

Thats a tiny little bit harsh though isn't it? I mean surely a warning or the removal of one would have sufficed in this situation, I mean people have done far worse then tell a staff member to piss off on these boards and they have recieved less of a punishment. I mean I don't know Bendy at all so I dont know what sort of a member she is normally as I dont really get involved with the boards that much, but in this situation I think it was perhaps a bit too harsh.

One or two stars I could of understood, but five all stripped is ridiculous, if you don't think she deserved them in the first place why not take it up with who handed 'em out? confused.gif

Oh and Dome fails, haha losar!....

All 5 removed without warning? The worst I've seen on one occasion is 3, and the person received plenty warnings.. dozingoff.gif

Has anyone considered that maybe, just maybe, only one karma star was taken for the post in question? Looking at her log, it's extremely evident that in fact she had only ever earnt one star yet had somehow managed to rack up 5. For example:
QUOTE (Reason)
For reasons I'd rather not disclose.. <3 you! hehe

QUOTE (Reason)
For admitting on msn to Earthy and me, to being nakie biggrin.gif

QUOTE (Reason)
-


As her level was being adjusted for the warning, would it have not been sensible to set it to the deserved level rather than just carry out a set punishment of simply '-1 karma'?

Other than the fact that those extra four karma stars were still given out, reasons were only given for three (I don't know what the fourth would be..), and she should still have one after that.

Then again, that's what happens when.. Well, you tell me.

That's completely retarded.

I don't care if there wasn't a justified reason for those given karma, either the staff member who gave the karma had a reason or he/she was being irresponsible, which really isn't Bendy's fault. They were probably given because of good behavior which I'm sure is a damn good reason to get karma.

Anyways, 5 karma taken for something like that is simply stupid.

what? no it isn't. are all of you daft? its a clearcut rule; no flaming. it goes even more so for the staff, who keep this place running. Flaming the staff is about like cursing at your parents to their face; disrespectful and rude.

Bendy could have chosen any lesser combination of words to express her dislike of opi, or his attitude, that would not have gotten karma taken away from her. instead she chose to say what she did, and paid the price. The severity of the punishment is a little looser, and depends on the mod or admin who deals it out. some will do less or more, depending on the member and circumstances.

Personally, i feel the lot of you need to find something better to do than whining about another members punishment over an incident that didn't involve any of you. I'm not really sure what any of you are trying to accomplish anyway, her punishment is not going to be rescinded.

im sorry but youre not telling me that everyone has full on earned all there karma - i remember peachy gor about 4 for "spreading a positive attitude" or some sh*t, common! if you do it to me then surely you would have to go round and strip everyone else's karma that they didnt fully deserve!

i mean - i didnt even get a warning, none what so ever, i ahvent had a warning in a year! and you take all five away for telling a mod to f*ck off, its just plain stupid!
