Now they are month long and I get them for things I've said and posted on for years if not decades! I've always loved this place because it was light hearted and interesting and fun. We ALWAYS had humor before. Now I can't even say anything humorous in a thread without fear of a ban. My expertise had been on chini economy and mil watch. Now I can't post anything there without being tagged a chicommie propagandist. Conversely, I am also called a racist for posting humor on same said commies.
Since GDF had been shut down things have changed. There is no outlet for the human stuff like fun and irreverence.
I am not revolting or anything. Just speaking as a old-timer who is now scared stiff of getting a permanent ban on everything he writes.
I reviewed your user notes, Your record shows a history of warnings by at least half a dozen different mods and multiple bans, again by different mods. I’m not even in the picture here. These include 3 generations of BRF mods. These actions have happened across multiple forums - mil, strat and tech .
Here is the simple reality - the problem is you. Within the past two weeks you’ve responded to cautioning by mods, with an offer to behave because you asserted a deep interest in some topics here. You proceeded to break your own word within days.
You have a long history of ignoring patient moderation by successive generations of mods. Your own word is worthless. You are a repeat offender whose record shows mod action for the same problems repeatedly.
Your characterizations are tasteless, inappropriate and tiresome. Polite advice to listen has fallen on deaf ears. We do not want your behavior here. Unless you demonstrate maturity and the ability to offer original and new contributions that advances the knowledge of this forum, it is simply a matter of time before you’re permanently banned.
