    Well he was using very vulgar language. I mean I never really cared, but maybe he got one to many complaints?
    I don't think language was a issue , see even MsM one pointed to me that he has always beeen just like that.

    Actually, he was like that before he got those green dots. If you swear, most of us really aren't bothered too much by it as long as you are making an important point. If the point is valid, you'd actually probably get APs. Quality, not quantity is the real answer to APs.
    Something is very wrong here and i am too new a member to understand all this. The more i brouse the more i see Senior members with 11 shining Green Dots Banned. Let me guess it has something to got with the AP's ,I remember riotwhore saying something about AP abuse yesterday. They Already have 11 how many more they want.

    And when some Newb starts a thread complaning about negging everybody is quich to jump in and say AP' don't mean nothing. If they don't mean nothing to newb then it should also apply to Senior Members.

    I am a newb and i know i will be negged for this but i wanted to say what i felt.

    First off, riotwhore was not rioter.

    Second, there is a point and limit to how far you can go. |The|Specialist went beyond that point. I have for the longest time been a defender of his and his actions. He went a little too far.

    Lastly, having multiple accounts is a no-no.

    'Nuff said.

    Most of your stuff ends up in Addicts rather than the front page so generally it's only the addicts that would have issue and I haven't had many complaints. However, if you were to start spamming the front page with crap or areas that general newbies see things before they've posted their first post, well...

    It's really a combination of stuff. You haven't reached a point yet where I think "Ewwwwwwww... that's over the line"... yet. Close..

    Oh, Mark Plods away happy in the fact that that he is only a border line nutter.

    BTW. you mean to say that some addicts have complained about my behaviour in addicts ?

    I mean I just use it to keep people amused as no one else seems to have any better purpose for it.

    Also MSMittens you can moderate and a damn fine job you do to but to quote demolition man "You can't take away peoples right to be A**h0L3Z"

    Remember community implies just that. not everyone here is a conformist and thats why antionline works. If there was not a hardcore element among us we would not work as a team and as a community and we damn sure wouldn't have all the underground input we get.

    Remember. I am popular here for a whole different set of reasons that you are. You are the light and I am the darkness. You can't have one without the other.

    I mean a community of people who read the manual and don't experiment will only lead to disaster.

    Nope. AFAIK, not a single complaint has come forth to me. Unless another mod has received some.

    True but as with every society there are laws and rules. You can't go out and rape someone without consequences. So, yes, you can be an a**hole all you want but realize that there are consequences to those actions. There is some validity to the statement that if a newbie tried the stunts that happened yesterday, they'd be banned in seconds by the community at large. Whereas if an addict or senior does it, *shrug* is the attitude. This reached a point where *shrug* doesn't work any more. People may not like it. I didn't like doing it.

    Keep in mind that I've defended his actions on numerous occassions and most recently in the thread that SwordFish pointed out. That said, there are limits and boundaries that people can go. Once you've crossed that, no matter how much I don't want to, I have no choice because that is the consequence for that action.

    As mods we let a lot go. From some mild adhominom attacks to swearing and some suggestive sexual activities. When it goes too fair (libelious, defamatory, etc.) we have to step in. Maybe we should be more "Nazi-ish" (I keep thinking of the Chat Nazi or Soup Nazi for some reason) but I'd rather let the community police it self for the most part.

    So I ask all members: please. Don't look for ways to make me miserable by seeing how far is too far. Use some common sense. To be part of the community is to be aware of the community, ALL PARTS OF IT.

    Perhaps a warning shot of 1000 ap would be better than a banning. ?

    I know I would be gutted. I polish my peas every morning before I start work.

    Umm.. given that most Addicts/Seniors "don't care" about APs, how would this be an impact?

    I also sent an email to him about it. I never received a reply.
