Guitarsnstuff was banned...from what I understand for a joke that no one saw...

He was stuck on the old server, and could not get on the new one with a few other members. they were going back and forth wondering why they were "left behind".

In jest, he typed out a few words of profanity and said "yay, no mods"

So other than a few members that were in on the joke and apparently a few mods, he was banned for "Disrespecting the forum and mods".

It seems that this may be a "tree falling in the forest, does it make noise" situation. There was no malice intended, and I'm sure he thought no one would see it.

I don't know, just want others opinion on if this might be a slight misunderstanding and not an out and out "disrepecting"

You know...I'm still confused as to what the new server is like. If I'm on it, I see no difference...

If you're on it, you won't see what i am talking about...so apparently...you're on it.

I have noticed it's a bit quicker opening posts and pics show up quicker.


Now back to the matter at hand.

Well, even if he was on the old server, it's still on MLP and he still has to go by the rules. You can break any rule "as a joke", but it's still breaking a rule.

I had some weird moments with the transition but I didn't see the guys fatal error.
Apparently someone heard the tree fall........

Ok, if thats the case, make the punishment fit the crime, 2 weeks for a bad joke? Seems excessive to me?

My .02 cents worth, if you write it, you own it. Doesn't matter if no one saw it or what the intention was.
You don't say if it is a temp ban or permanent. If permanent then he really pissed someone off...


EDIT: I see where you say it was two weeks. Sucks, but those are the rules. I've always been told, "don't like the rules, start your own forum"...

I’m thinking Kerry wasn’t to happy with Frank playing
“Raining Blood” better than he did. So he had him banned.

Here is BB's response (He's stuck on the old server)

If it was supposed to be a joke, it was a poor one. Out and out violation of the rules based upon the perceived absence of a moderator (tree falling in the woods) is still a disrespectful post--maybe he'll learn a lesson: Be careful what you say, as you never know who's listening. Maybe he'll learn that in his short time away from the MLP. From the MLP Desert Island, BB

PS--Guitarzanstuff is getting voted off the island at the next tribalcouncil. :D

2/2/10....that's 2 weeks.

...and for the record, the 3 words he used, I have seen used here MANY times with no banning.

Looks like we got rescued off the island.

PABP...how about you mind your own business. :hmm:
