I think what a lot of people are forgetting here is that "fair" is relative. Your fair is going to be different than mine. We have people from all different backgrounds, ages, cultures, and languages. The goal here is to maintain civilized and productive conversation in English, since it's universal. If you're removed or some action is taken against you, instead of expecting a detailed response from a moderator (who has time for that?), reach out to someone you think will have an objective opinion on the issue and do some work on your own to figure out what's wrong. Ask yourself some questions:
- Could what I said be misinterpreted?
- Could what I said (or continue to say) be offensive to some users?
- Are my posts helpful and relevant?
- Am I constantly having my posts flagged and requiring moderator time and effort?
A lot of people feel very entitled. A "hard earned" title suddenly isn't earned anymore if you have 50k posts across 1000 hours and you spend 2 minutes making another person feel like less of a person. You're not entitled to be a jerk, and you're not entitled to free speech here. Being a customer of Infinite Flight doesn't entitle you to create your own version of socially acceptable behavior. If I walk into a restaurant and start talking at the top of my lungs the entire time, they will ask me to leave even if I have spent money there. Not because I'm breaking some hard and fast rule, but because it's not socially acceptable behavior.
Let common sense prevail and give our forum mods a break for goodness sake!!
