That is a 4 year old post Ghz. Clearly nothing changes in the scope of four years, right?
I am not telling anyone anything Mike. Ironicly I am doing what you are complaining about. Cleaning things up a bit. I am not going around censoring everyones posts. And I am not selecting one member over another based on anything even romotely close to personal opinions.
I can't touch the other side of the site. I can't strike out personal attacks from anyone to anyone over there. Just like Steph can't come here and remove it.
There has been a rash of trash over here. I have been asked to take care of it. I am doing that. From links to personal sites to personal youtube videos to a whole host of things. Creating a thread about sex in a video game forum ... why are we even talking about this? Does it contribute more then some person trying to promote his game, his site, his whatever?
Combine that with the stance on homophobia, I took action. Homophobic slants aren't ok even if they are jokes. There is a certian level of PC that does exsistin the world. That is the way it works. And like Steph said treat this site and act in it, like you would in public.
I understand some users make other users very upset. And the way i understand it is that if a user crosses the line from this point forward then that user will be taken care of. If I see something outragous here in the forums I will take action and email it to Pat, Dave, Steph, or Brenna. Those folks are not freaken babysitters. They don't have time to chase you all around telling you to play nice.
Some advice stop trying to get the ban hammer used as a weapon in your personal wars. If you see something, bring it to the staffs attention.
Btw, I have been doing this type of thing for a good couple of months at least, starting when I was emailed. I took a more active role to help out. Gheritt was fooling around he knows it wasn't personal. I made a call and stand by it.
