Full Version: Duffman, unjust bannings?
iGrandTheftAuto.com Forums > Important Information > Website & Forum Problems & Discussion

It seems after me and Asthenia trolled Duffman for a topic he made, he got all pissy and banned us both for god knows how long, I assume indefinite. I'm here writing this complaint, as I figured trolling was a warn-able offence only, maybe a suspension at the most. I'm just wondering what will be done in regards to this, will Duffman get demoted for abusing his power, or will it get swept under the rug and anyone who ever mentions it will get banned?

Dualshock
It's not like everyone trolls everyone around here. Tsk.
DuffMan
Well, the trolling wasn't particularly justified either. First time I ask a question on these forums in a long time and all I get is you two posting crap in the Asylum, no doubt having a grand discussion about it on MSN/PSN at the same time. If it isn't funny, I just can't be arsed with it.

And yes the ban is permanent atm.

Well it wasn't all you got, I saw three posts from these fine chaps in the Asylum, are you going to ban poor old ViceMan for saying "fucks sake", rather more uncouth than the word "douche", whatwhat!
DuffMan
No.
Kuwongain
Trolling never really is "justified", but a ban for it is not really justified either, but your get out of trouble free card seems to have that covered. Also what we discuss over msn is hardly cause for any issues to arise upon the forums here, given it was not stated in a public setting, so none of the forums rules would apply to that. But again, your "card" has that covered.
DuffMan
Well, it is if you're going "omg you should totally post this!". But yes, it's a cruel world. You can have the accounts back if you're going to stop being so stupid. I am allowed to not like things and give reasons for why I don't like them.
Kuwongain
But your own personal opinions shouldn't affect how you change the rules of the website. They should stay just that, your own personal opinions.
Dualshock
I could write a list as long as your arm (how old are you now? Maybe as long as my arm. My arms are longer and older.) on why I trolled you, but at the end of the day, all the vet's troll each other around here, Asthole ring any bells? Arset? Asst? And many more! And the most recent one; DiOtard. Know why nothing was done about it?

Cause it's a forum, and most of us just laugh it off. Cause it's a big ol' joke.
DuffMan
Well, they do. You can't be totally objective, and both of you have been registered here longer than me iirc so you should know how it works by now.

Like I said earlier, if it was funny, I wouldn't have done anything.
Dualshock
I know how it works. And iirc, you and Pie are the only people to ever ban me properly, outside of a joke.

And guess which 2 forum members I've never really gotten on with?

Actually Pie was pretty cool back in the day... and I have nothing against him anymore, he has good taste in cameras...
Kuwongain
Well to many it was funny, to me it was funny, it was funny to Ast. As you said in regards to RDR, they are your own opinions and you are entitled to them, but just because you did not find it funny, there was no need to jump to banning us from the start. You could merely have pm'ed us and said it was causing you offence and we no doubt would have respected that and stopped. A warn would have even sufficed, but you went right to banning us, which just seemed like overkill.

See, after what, 4 maybe 5 years of being staff? I know that doesn't work. It's just more material to troll with.

Whoa. Someone take a picture of that dick! Must be mighty huge. Can't see it though since it's an e-penis...
Dualshock
How would you know that? You didn't try it with us. You talk like we took the role of mattmurdock. Tsk.

You're the admin, though...
DuffMan
Looks like we're not getting anywhere. Sorry. Can't say I didn't give you the option.
