You asked why you were banned. Now you know.

I understand why I was banned on my first account.

 

I have no idea why I was banned on @Science Fiction. It was a concept account not flaming, not targetting any staff or sh*tposting, not a dupe, a completely different persona, and it was harmless

Presumably because you were told not to return until you'd sorted yourself out? That implies a downtime of more than 20 minutes between accounts.

Because once you get permanently banned, you effectively become a PBM. Which means all subsequent and/or previous duplicate accounts you register(ed) will be banned all the same.

I have always been "sorted out". It's not like I was suffering little man syndrome or hostility. I was sh*tposting for the sake of getting laughs. You kicked me out the pit where I could do that harmlessly, and your reasoning was very vague.

Tell that to everyone else who have peacefully made accounts after the banathon, and have remained unbanned from you.

This is a great start to the new year. I only wish I had more votes. Narrowed it down to a handful, then saw I could only vote on one.

There is a difference between a banathon ban i.e. a non-punitive ban, and a punitive ban for violating forum rules. Yours was the latter, hence it attaching the status of PBM to you.

Like I said, the message in my ban log said I can come back when I have sorted my act out, which I did. I had no intention of revealing myself as a PBM, had I stayed unbanned I wouldn't have even mentioned it.

It doesn't take 20 minutes to have your act sorted out. Clearly you haven't got your act together. If you had, you'd see Raavi's point here.

Could you specify then, perhaps how much time you'd like me to stay off for? I honestly do not see the point in banning a harmless account due to an unspecified arbitrary time limit.

Damn you guys sure do have some balls and you really didn’t need to do this...

 

Obviously it stands to reason that it will bring all the nastiness out from people.

 

Ive only voted for balance...crazy amount of votes for spider vice...im sure he’s got better things to do than clear up the mess on here anyway.

If you're very annoyed at gtaf maybe consider cutting you're losses and find another gaming forum, there's plenty out there. Life's too short.

Yours wasn't a harmless ban. You were banned for this post. And you were asked to get your act together. That generally means not creating an account right after getting banned. Wanting to sh*tpost for the sake of a few laughs isn't sorted out. The Pit has no rules. You were kicked at a staff discretion. That's it. Maybe take a year off the forums; stop caring too much about an internet forum and cool for a bit. Go out, get a life.

I do have a new name though, maybe that confuses things, but still. Past is the past. :)

The fact that you did this in the first place, then had the audacity to pretend as if you'd been somehow aggrieved, is a total vindication of your banning.

 

At the end of the day, you're a guest on a platform run, maintained and paid for by others. If you actually valued it, you wouldn't have been an insufferable troll in the first place.

I hope you aren't under the assumption I am begging for a return. I simply am tieing off loose ends here, I am annoyed with the vague second ban, and I am annoyed that you still won't give me an answer as to why I was removed from the Pit. It is simply peace of mind here.

 

You say it "generally means", which isn't an answer to my question. If I came back the next day, would you have banned me again? What about a few hours, months even?

 

If nobody knew who I was post-ban and I post peacefully, what is the problem? I do not feel at ease knowing I could come back in a year and still be banned for little reasoning.

Could the same be said about you, Sivis? I mean, you also flame sometimes. Granted mine was much more vicious, but you removed the post I made less than five minutes after it was made.

Your second ban wasn't vague like I pointed out earlier. You literally registered minutes after getting banned and that isn't considered "getting your act together". The staff reserve the right to remove you from the Pit and not answerable for the same. Take consolation of the fact that you were not wanted in there. Being a member is a privilege, not a right. Nobody owes you an answer.

 

You could have found out what "generally means" meant by waiting a while. Instead you ended up creating unnecessary drama (yes, keeping on making accounts and failing to see the valid points that were made earlier). People aren't asked to take time off to be back the next day, let alone hours. Maybe if you had returned a few months later, you could have been granted some leniency. Instead you didn't. You made it far worse, making your ban a PBM one.

 

You are certainly not at ease right now. And you're not making it any easier for yourself by wasting everyone's time here. The staff work voluntarily and believe it or not, they have lives outside the forum.

 

Copy pasting facts from Wikipedia isn't a learning curve.

Maybe you can edit my ban log, given me a time when I am free to come back? I'm not willing to come back and be banned again in a few months, neither am I willing to come back and have the community decide to "redeem" me when I didn't do much on my second account to be banned in the first place.

 

Why even throw me in the banathon anyway? I had a reputation only old regulars knew of before you placed me in there and added the ability to view past usernames. I never sh*tposted much at all and the pinnacle of my sh*tposting was within the thread itself, so if you were planning to ban me before the thread even existed, that's very sly.

Why was I not given a temp ban instead? My member log was vast, but most of it was made four years ago by different staff than Spider-Vice.

 

If I could come back and you just wanted to place an arbitrary time limit, you should've have just temped me a set a time for it.

 

I would have more peace of m8nd if you just banned me outright like Fooking and told me to f*ck off permenantly.

I meant it as in the fact I actually sympathize with banned accounts now, especially when not much of an answer as to why they are banned is given.
