is "rick rolling" a bannable offence?

i disguised a "rick roll" link and i got banned for 5 days with the reason of "you got rick rolled *****"

is it my fault a mod was so stupid that they fell for it and decided to abuse their powers and ban me?

if your a mod why wouldnt you check the link first?


anyway.... thats not my complaint

right before the ban i was having a possible "scammer" issue with a member, so why ban me for something so stupid so i cant resolve that?

basically your helping the scamming situation by banning decent members for stupid **** without looking into what is going on around here before you ban people

would a mod who actually cares please pm me and answer why this crap is happening around here?

ya probably not, but i would really love to find out why i got banned while i was trying to deal with a potential scammer last week

if it was really something bad i could see that, but i was banned cause i mod couldnt preview a link, isnt that mod 101?

kinda sad:(

well he said a few posts down "get this **** outta my thread" and boom i was banned

it really isnt important other than banning people without finding out wtf is going on

i mean if you give a **** about your user base why ban a member trying to deal with a scammer

exactly and you dont need a degree to figure that out, but obviously the mod who banned me for it doesnt know that

i am just pissed cause i could be out money cause he isnt internet savvy enough to figure that out

guess that what happens when you elect mods on post count and not brains

Ya u really cant since no one is paying to use the site. He can do whatever he wants and make whoever he wants to a mod. Not trying to be an as$hole or anything but thats the way it is.

ok you missed the point...

1. i was banned for something REALLY stupid and there was no reason for it
2. it could have cost ME money

so its ok as long as it doesnt cost the forum money?
as a member i should roll over and just deal with losing money?

just kinda curious as to the logic

and

i DO pay to be here, everytime i refresh the page the site makes money

Pimpdaddyq
11-08-2007, 05:11 AM

well said...NOT

good argument, you have my vote for mod cause thats what they would say

would you rather argue with someone about the health of the forums or argue about the health of deerhunts *** life?

if it is the latter you have my vote for mod:(

Im not just trying to argue here buddy..

Im just tryin to make it known that you will get nowhere with your posts..

Ok.. you are mad this site makes money at some of the posters expense.. do you think they will be like "OK we will stop because this guy is *****ing about it".. hell no... will they give you your $35 that you coulda made.. no..

They probably will look at this thread, and the first couple posts, and go **** this thread..

Settle down, and enjoy the site, if you don't want to, then leave, as many people have suggested..

i will quote in bold for truth

i am not mad that they make money off me and i could care less, i am pissed that they pretend to give a **** about scammers and then ban someone that is dealing with a "potential" scammer

IMO that just says who cares and it is sad that as far as i know 100% of the mods feel that way, until they get scammed then it is a whole different thing

Yes, we make SO MUCH money moderating this site..I'm just rolling in the cash :rolleyes:

Over the past month, I've had to empty my PM box twice (mods can hold up to 300PM's), and about 95% of them were members asking me to help them in regards to either deals they were looking into making, or deals that they have made. I've done a couple hundred IP searches on other members for those that have PM'ed me, and have given them plenty of advice when it comes to dealing with people. I've spent tons of time searching others posts to see what deals they've made in the past, I've checked references for people, I've done a TON of ****.

Oh...and I've made, approximately, $0 doing so.

We've banned a handful of people for posting that link- I know I've had some skins on Firefox that do not display the URL of the page when the link is moused over, and I've clicked on that link several times, and it's annoying as ****, especially when I have tabbed pages of importance, and have to CTRL+ALT+DEL to get out of that page.

Stop whining about being banned, you did something that is annoying as **** for people to deal with, and has been done to death.

ok you missed the point...

1. i was banned for something REALLY stupid and there was no reason for it


there have been a couple threads where various mods have threatened temp bans for rick roll links.
it is annoying as **** and just pisses people off.


2. it could have cost ME money

so its ok as long as it doesnt cost the forum money?
as a member i should roll over and just deal with losing money?

that is not their problem.
you should have an email address or some other means of contacting the other party.
especially if you are having problems with the transaction.



i DO pay to be here, everytime i refresh the page the site makes money

YOU don't pay a cent to use this site.
advertisers pay to cover the costs to run the site, not members.

just get over it.
you did something stupid and got punished for it.

Correct...

Caraudio and Goob dont make a dime off you clicking refresh. He makes his money when you click a google link on the page. He also gets a monthly rate from the main page sites...Might even be per slick.

You in no way pay to be here and therefor you have no rights granted to you other then the privacy agreement you signed when registering.
