Can I ask was there any particular reason behind unbanning of this particular member: http://gtaforums.com/user/26492-zee/

 

Thanks in advance for the answer and sorry if questioning mods decision is crossing the line a bit.

To be fair Slamman is Slamman and without him around this place just isnt spammy or creepy enough for my liking. :lol:

The mods were bored, and decided they need to unban a  few trouble makers / spammers to give them something more to do.

Zee is a trademark of GTAF. If you type 'GTAForums' in Google, it will come up with 'GTAForums Zee' :p

You could at least make it believable, you clearly wrote "GTAForums Z" in the search bar, not "GTAForums" or else the "Z" would also be in bold text.

I thought I was the creepy one? :(


But in seriousness though, I'm a bit puzzled as to why Zee is unbanned, especially how all he did was post stuff like "HEY COCKSTAR LAY OFF THE WHISKEY" and for some reason or another, got an army of supporters/followers who find it funny.

You are lucky that Slamman was banned while the forum awards were going on, or else you might not have won it :O

Sounds like something I would do A J, thus the reason I'm not a mod.

This forum is OFFICIALLY a JOKE. Why have ANY rules at all, if you can "un ban" a troll who received a permanent ban? How can the mods seriously expect anyone else to respect forum "rules"? I suspect this was one mod in particular, who was "buddies" with Zee, and decided to come up with this PATHETIC "member you'd like to unban" idea as a way to bring him back in.

Who's next? Joan Crawford? LOL.

They just unban members for the sake of unbanning.

Some people deserve a permanent ban and never to post here ever again.

 

Some people have done their time and deserve another chance. We aren't cruel dictators.

 

He, and a few others, have been unbanned for a while and I've seen no trouble whatsoever, so what really is the argument here? Coming back from a ban means a short leash and in no shape or form belittles our rules or makes anyone exempt.

That guy is well known for having used this forum as his personal playground. It's ONE thing to serve a temporary ban, but a PERMANENT ban is supposed to be PERMANENT. As far as I'M concerned, he is being given special treatment. THAT'S what the argument here is.

What's the point of having rules? In my opinion, the mods are very selective with what they decide to enforce, and what they don't. No amount of B.S. is going to cover that up.

Whatever.

There are rules but just like in life, people are given second chances (sometimes more), why does this bother you so much?

 

This isn't a government, it's a free service to fans of the game. Staff reserve the right to do as they please.. but to unban, what's so difficult to comprehend? I haven't even seen the guy post nor do I look for him because I could care less. If his actions are like last time, I'm sure Moderators will give the boot again. Just chill out, it's the internet.

Are you even aware how many people are given second chances? Sure, these are some 'special cases' here (for example Zee) since that are members who were permanently banned and their bannings have been reversed. Other members, who were given another chance, are using new accounts while their old account, where they were initially banned, remain banned. In fact, there are plenty of people who have had accounts prior to their current one. I don't see what the problem is. It's not like they are allowed to do whatever they want. If they continue the rule-breaking, they will be banned again. It's that simple.

Whatever. I was only speaking my mind. When you get banned for minor B.S., and then see a guy like THAT receive what is supposed to be a "permanent" ban, only to bring him back is a load of garbage. Sorry, that MY opinion. Maybe i'll get banned for it.

Why the f*ck are you whining about a guy being unbanned from a gtaforum?

 

God damn it man, if you care that much you must have less of a life than I do.

Why are YOU whining about someone's opinion? All I did was point out something hypocritical about this forum. Was I breaking any rules? In either case, since you have more of a life than I do, perhaps you shouldn't waste your time responding to my opinions.

Personally if it was my decision to make (of course if I was still a mod) I wouldn't have brought him back considering his attitude in his final days before his ban.

However a lot of time has passed since then and I believe he's more like his real self rather than the "cockstar lay off the whiskey" character that terrorized the GTA V forum in 2011/2012.

Whether it's because he's trying to stay under the radar or he's genuinely approached his second tenture in a more rational/true self way I don't know. I can see where 73duster's coming from, but to be honest I've barely noticed him.

Until he does something a long the lines of his old habits I'd say he's back for the long haul.
