I'm just going to refer to this post that you made, the guy was lucky not to be banned, in most cases he would have been. You don't insult the staff members on this forum period. Don't like it? Read the quotation above, still don't like it? Then leave.
SonOfLiberty is well aware of how the forum works and what he's posting is fine and you have nothing to worry about.

Well I think I should be able to defend myself here. I admit maybe the way I worded it wasn't to best way to go about, but the whole thing started because of Stingrayx and iProinsias were having an un-related argument and I told them to take it to PM. Ok I started it off with "f*cking hell', but that's besides the point.
Then iProinsias for no reason at all tells me to shut the f*ck up and find another forum. My post was a reaction to that.
I don't believe what I done was "power abusive". Infact and I'm sure a lot of people can vouch for this I don't have anger outbursts very often.
I'm not an expert at moderating. I was vaulted into this position in July and I'm still learning the ropes so to speak even though I was a GTA V forum leader for a year and a half. I've made mistakes with moderating before where I've jumped the gun, but in this instance I don't think what I done was abusing my power when the guy really should've been punished, but I let it slide anyway.
There are two sides to every story, but you're only concentrating on one.

You say that you're not complaining, yet you publicly chastise the guy for having a completely understandable human reaction, which I quite frankly find to be sad - you could just as well have written a PM to SonOfLiberty. Also please bear in mind that a moderator is just a member like everyone else, they're not robots. If someone pushes their buttons or in this case tells them to "f*ck off" they damn well are entitled to act on it.

I have warned you for your disrespectful post in the topic because that's the kind of sh*t that maybe SoL will tolerate but I won't. Our staff members are dedicated to the community and invest a lot of their valuable time in keeping this place in order for everyone to enjoy. If you think pointless bickering and derailing topics is freedom of speech and should be allowed, then this is not the place for you. Find yourself another forum.
If you wish to remain here, then I'm definitely not going to have you call out our staff for doing their job the way they're supposed to.
