Let's clear the air here.
There has been way too many problems with both CK and BA trolling each others soc recruit thread. (and of those socs using their threads to attack each other. A PVP thread is one thing, but a soc recruit thread? No.) After too many ignored warning I gave in both threads, I decided to start handing out long temp-bans.
If you dislike your ban, feel comforted that Ck members also received the same time frame in temp-ban. 1 month each for both of you.
As for the -rep issue:
I negotiated a cease fire between some Ck and Ba members as they just kept neg repping each other back and forth. (Ask Belza about it.)
Ba members broke that cease fire and they got a 1 (one, not three) month ban.
However, my investigation found one BA member openly trying to get others to neg rep a specific CK member as much as possible.
For that, he (and only he) got three months temp ban.
And for the record, I'm getting sick of you folks trying to imply I'm being unfair. Ask Tekkie if I'm treating Ck with kid gloves. Show me Ck trolling Ba soc recruit thread after I started handing out bans.
When the neg rep war started again, I checked as much as I could to see if the Ck member was in any way guilty. If he was, he would have been banned too. My investigation found that every single time, Ba negged him first.
Oh, and for the record, hopefully it's public knowledge about the lack of tolerance the mods have for IRL threats on the forums. (Obviously we have no control over stuff said in other places.) I'm well aware of the FB incident you refered to Rony, and rest assured if he makes that kind of post on these forums, he'll spend a long time away.
Always willing to learn
