So, just now Sunperp has issued a "warning" against me, inventing yet another rule that doesn't exist. In a thread where someone was claiming his single player game was being hacked and intruded upon by "forge devs," and in which the poster was insulting everyone left and right, it was clear the thread was a trolling thread. AFTER the thread was flagged for insult, *I* received a warning for suggesting it was the thread was an attempt at trolling. I never called the OP a "troll," mind you. Nevertheless, sunperp issued a warning against me, then pointed to the rules, none of which say anything about warning other people about trolling. He invented yet another rule, out of thin air, that suggesting a thread is trolling is thus an insult against the person an an implied namecalling, even if no names were called.
It's astounding. This is clearly a guy who is now following around people who call out his bad moderation, and abusing his authority.
As for your explanation of the site's revenue, well it's likely untrue. I suppose I will receive a warning now for implying you are lying, but if this were true you wouldn't have so many ads on the site. Ads exist, therefore ad revenue exists. It also assumes someone can obfuscate the realities behind web revenue.
If it is true, it only makes it worse, because it explains why you tolerate such abysmal moderation: in short, you don't care if you alienate customers, because they don't mean anything to the revenue. That's worse. I'm not buying it, but it's your case, and you made it... so there it is.
You have just called me a liar without any proof ("but you have on multiple occasions in this thread insulted others and made statements that are untrue.") I have received only a handful of warnings and none were for insults. I received three from Sunperp for self-censored "profanity" (using asterisks etc to imply a curse word) and then one for insult, which was appealed and overruled. Then the new one today. Nearly all were issued by Sunperp, who apparently follows me. All things considered, three minor infractions for self-censored words in four years isn't bad. And those happened back in 2014, before I knew that typing "%#@%" was a thing. Who knew?
But NONE were for "lying." You just made that one up.
Now, by your own rules -- or at least the rules made by Sunperp -- you just insulted me publicly by calling me a "liar" in the same way that suggesting the other poster was trolling constitutes me calling him "a troll." I daresay, you deserve a warning yourself. I don't hold my breath.
You have publicly displayed -- yet again -- the double standard going on here.
