Exactly. Cyper - were you trying to get a warning with that post? Because if you were, I can upgrade it for you, free of charge.
I can't say this enough - if you see something that should be punished, report it, and move on. Like Ryan said, other members' warnings are not visible to you, so it's likely they have been warned.
I honestly believe that all of you moderators are trying your best and I understand completely that it is literally impossible - and not to mention completely out of order - to expect every single post to be overlooked.
My thesis was that if I would write ''faggot'' as an insult I would not get an infraction, but if I wrote what I did, I would most likely get one. Maybe it was a coincidence. Maybe it wasn't. But ass I stated, I just don't think things are consistent enough in this case. In the end of the day it's the moderator who must decide. It may be (at least partly) because I've got a slanted view because the fact is that I don't see how many people who are getting infractions or what they get infractions for. But let me put it like this: From what my own experiences it seems to be more socially acceptable among people to discriminate someone because of their sexuality than because of their race and that's a frickin' problem. You're right though, I do report posts, and I am going to do that even more frequently now. Regarding what I wrote I will leave that to your judgement and your free will. If you want to give me an infraction then that's up to you. I'm not going to object or take anything back, though. I refuse. What you should know though is that my purpose isn't and have never been to keep doing it. I didn't write it just to be a troublemaker in the first place. If I wanted trouble I wouldn't discuss how to possibly make the forums a better place.
EDIT: Slightly off topic, but wouldn't it be a good idea to implement a feature that makes it possible to see if someone have been warned because of a specific post? Maybe by some sort of ''Red Card'' or something. In that way there wouldn't be ten different reports on the same post and people would also notice what you can be get an infraction for.
