Banning

Postby roy » Sat Jun 07, 2008 11:09 am

Could someone tell me what the banning policy is at FB, because I have been banned for months now for calling some new members morons and having the gaul to argue with V1c. At QBasic.com I only ban spammers permanently and the longest ban I have given to a member was one week for vile language.

To those NAZI's you are banned FORVER! Their members can trash other Forums, but they are very touchy about their forum. Who needs a community of gamers and jerks anyhow?

Since Pete opened this FB forum only a few even bother with it!

And many of the "experts" are JERKS anyhow. I guess Lachie thinks Mac dying is a time for humor? SAD!

Apparently we both fit in TOO well there, LOL

So now that we cannot get their latest terrible updates(?), they are happy dooming themselves to antiquity. QB64 will RULE anyhow and make QBasic a real language option again!

it depends on the mod or the forum owner...

in alot of cases "flaming" someone will get you banned for a few days to a few weeks......

some people think the littlest thing is worth banning over and some
allow anything except for death threats...

go fig'r...

Petes(here)is pretty mellow on the matter i'm not as mellow...

except for spamming no one in my opinion should get banned
on a first offense of the rules...if in fact it was your first offense..

TRUE! And that is why FREE BASIC will DIE too.

... In about 5 * 10^9 years, give or take a percent.

I don't know how long Roy will be banned, given his suspension isn't indefinite (Who'll remember his IP address five years from now?).
For any grievances posted above, I blame whoever is in charge . . .

V1C stands for VICIOUS!

Once you are banned, they say contact administrator with no link. LOL

No need to drag this dicussion on I gather. But I think FB is dooming itself.

I have NEVER been denied access to ANY other FREE Programming Tool. Even if it does not conform with Qbasic. Not for any reason!

That's why I call them Nazi's! Lachie and his pals went to Network 54's QB Community and insulted the QB64 effort and Galleon. When I posted some of their posts at FB, they tossed me! I guess that sounds fair to communists too!

However NONE of them, no matter how disgusting, were banned from our site!

The reason that you bringing up their posts was a problem, was because you were cutting in on topics that had nothing to do with the topic. If I recall, you simply posted in the topics Lachie had posted in recently.

Now, before I get yelled at for being a Nazi, let me say I don't think you should have been banned. But let me also say, that your actions were just as inappropriate on the FB forum as Lachie's were on the N54 forum. Lachie formally apologized for his misconduct, but you refuse to let it go.

Also, Lachie's joke about Mac was not really his fault. If anything, it was mine. His post after that was to show that he read the news of Mac, AFTER his first post. I was the one who linked to the "Where's Mac" thread in the network 54 forums in QBExpress #28 news section. He linked directly to it from the article. If you want to be mad at some one for that, I'll pin the target to my chest.

OK

Postby burger2227 » Sun Jun 08, 2008 6:28 pm

I'll let it go! Thanks for taking the time to explain and I hope that you continue to bring great things to QB and FB.

I will only say that I never posted any flames at the FB site that were my own, so I cannot apologize for other's behavior. Perhaps I should have just posted one. LOL

Thanks,

Ted

That would have been better, yes. And in it's own topic, preferably.

One more thing

Postby burger2227 » Mon Jun 09, 2008 11:44 am

The administrator also had my email address and never bothered to even explain why I was tossed. That indicates their arrogance by itself!

I don't disagree with you on that point. You have a right to be upset, but so did they. I just think they reacted too harshly.

Is that better?

I apparently never set up an Avatar for here... Or maybe I had one that just disappeared. I don't remember. I have a new one now. You like?

Divided by zero..........LOL

You must have had one because there was a blank picture box with that little click on square.
