User Geek banned

Postby webgeek » March 2nd, 2007, 6:04 am

Sorry to tell you all that the user Geek was banned from the board. The ban was made necessary for his repeated unfair comments on moderators of the board.

Moderators are people who put the topics of discussion on focus and ensure that no user of the discussion board is being offended because of comments by other members.

It hard to take the decision of ban on Geek, particularly, he having made lots of useful posts on Telangana and many other topics.

It is news to me. Though there are about 50 posting notifications in my mailbox during past one week, I visited the site hardly and might have posted couple of new ones, due to other commitments didn't have time to follow through new postings. Thus, mostly, I may be missing things of what happened during the past week. However, I do remember a week or week+ ago coming across a posting where couple or several users involved in a posting and might have recommended to delete such a posting, if so decided.
Out of those 50 posting notifications in the mail box, I come across this notification thread, when I saw the name of "Geek" whom I know on this board more than any one else and his contribution on this site.
Perhaps when I go through those 50 or so posting notifications, one by one, in the coming weeks (as tied up with other obligations now) I may understand what might have happened or what might have caused to such a ban. If I find enough information, reasoning, and or justification I will file appropriate appeal on behalf of "Geek" at that time.

User 'whereever123' was banned for the following prime reason amongst others.

1. Signing up with a username that is similar to that on another user and mislead other users with the typo.

2. Indecent referring to other users, abusive language & unfair comments

Such tactics essentially indicate the desperation on behalf of the person. They come to the forum not to discuss and share the thoughts but to "defeat" people who disagree with them. But when it is clear that it is they who are getting "defeated" as long as they stick to decorum and decency of the discussion board some get abusive and adopt such tactics - spoofing of an existing user name, profanity and pornographic prose.

And some others have taken a different route - instead of reacting to the points and content of a post they demand each word of the "opponent" to be analyzed for "personal abuse" and they act hurt and threaten that they will boycott the forum unless everyone writes as per their wishes. All this when their own writings make the worst use of stereotyping, ethnic abuse and fascist idioms.
