There are other people here. Please respect the forum.

Not sure why face agreed this was a troll and didn't go forward, but I agree it's a troll and will. 3 days for trolling the forum.



It seems pretty simple looking at it from outside the group of moderators. Face called the OP out on in it, and gave him a warning. It looks to me like he thought that was enough moderating for this offense. If he thought that there should be a suspension, it seems like he would have done it (though I don't speak for him, of course) because he was already "moderating" the issue.

It looks like you decided to overrule him and issue the suspension. If you asked Face about it and he agreed, then that should have been noted. What it looks like the way it is now constructed is that a moderator made a decision and then another moderator, for whatever reason, decided that wasn't enough.

Once one moderator makes a call, absent consultation, the call should stand unless the Wiz or someone higher decides differently. I can totally see Mike taking this issue and making the suspension if it was brought to him but I think, absent that, Face's call should be left alone. That being said, I think Face did his job, much like the cop that gives you a warning instead of a ticket, and that should have been that at this level of moderation.

Thanks for your thoughts.

I think that, since 4 people took suspensions for censoring darkoz's post, he should have moved on about 20 baiting and argumentative posts ago, including both the plaza thread and his several posts in this one. It would have been inconsistent moderation to ban all of them, then not give him a time out for trolling the people who disagree with him on this. And there is no disagreement about the trolling, though some see it as a joke and others apparently do not. So I suspended him.

I said before that I understand it was an offense he could be suspended for based on the rules; I just don't get why one moderator looked at it and made a call and then another came in and dropped the ban hammer. It seems like less than ideal moderation for a post to be busted, the culprit warned and sent on his way, and then to have someone else follow behind and do something different (absent consultation, of course). Maybe you had every "right" to do it; it was not the "right" thing to do in my opinion based on Face's warning already being issued.
