    a curtis, aka oklahomagator said at the start of this thread, he did not say it was he who banned me, therefore i had no one to pm to

    PM any of the mods and they can tell you at least who, if not why.

    Can you imagine what the board would look like if we all started a new thread when we got moderated?

    Sometimes in my experience.

    If nothing else, this should help for transparency. IMHO a mod should always leave his or her name for any moderating so that the poster can seek clarification or engage in conversation. This should be standard.

    There isn't a specific place in the notification box that we fill out when moderating a thread but we are going to try to start adding our name to the reason. For example instead of "post deleted due to insult, calling XYZ an idiot" we will add our name to the notification. It is a change so give everyone a chance to adjust to it.

    If you want to get the thread ban released pm the moderator who is named in your notification, if we forget then feel free to pm me and I will look into it.

    If you call a Gator one of those names it would be considered an insult.

    Depends. If you call me, it is a thread ban. If you call @unlcenunzio, you will never be seen again. Not just here, not in real life. If you call Danny Kannell, you will be made a moderator. Everything else falls on the middle.

    Ehhh - I like reading about this, because I hadn't heard of being banned for calling a politician a moron.

    Am I alone in thinking many on the right have a hardcore victim complex?

    Are you really equating seeking clarification and transparency to a victim complex?

    Dyed in the wool libby here. I'm with the righty on this one. If what was posted is true, it's hard to understand why a 3day ban was implemented. My main thought, though, is that I appreciate learning more about the ways the mods are administering the board. It's informative, AFAIAK

    I understand. And I also appreciate that moderators have a thankless job. Those are the people that you ask.

    No, you are not alone. That was the reason for the mass exodus of conservatives from this board a year or 2 ago. They were so used to being able to run roughshod here that they felt victimized when they were no longer able to. I believe the mods do a pretty good job of being unbiased. But the cons felt unfairly victimized.
