People hate feeling responsible for their failures, ergo team games prevail.
Filters exist for a reason. Regulating peoples generosity is irrational.

User has been warned for this post.
Warned for this? So why not warn the user he was "talking" with as well?

This really says something about the moderation quality on the forums.

why would I be? because you and the rest of the mob want blood? So let's see how this works you and a few others don't LIKE me so you want me banned because you don't like me? I didn't call him a retard. Unless you think yan is a retard, but I don't. I accused him of being yan who is last I heard banned. This is not a terrible offense. Just like how Tim was able to act completely uncivil, i don't think he violated any rules beyond making a few ugly remarks about me. So if I can be in trouble for suggesting a user may be a smurf(which is admits he is) of a problematic forum user I should get a warning which IS a point towards ban?

Warnings are not slaps on the wrist. They accrue and you get banned. They do go away over time, I cannot remember where to find my warning level but last I recall it was 2-3 points. So I could VERY WELL be on the verge of a ban if I acted badly enough...

but just because you guys want to see an example made is not a good reason to demand my ban.

From what I see "troll" posts are often just misunderstood rather than rooted in harmful intent. Responding to this "bad" behaviour with snidy bitching and bullshit raises drama unintentionally (all the fucking time). Passive-aggressive attacks don't invite the banstick but they do invite aggressive responses and sow the seeds for future conflict.

A habit of negatively judging people and calling them out is inflammatory (these are _ugly accusations_, not "righteous" even if you are sometimes right).

Ofc it would be better if EVERYONE would act like adults and refuse to get drawn into the flaming and bullshit (intentional or otherwise) but this is only needed from the majority. It takes 2 to start a flamewar.

dude... you are begging for a board warning there. stop it right noe.

User was banned(one day) for this post. - Back seat moderation.
No it isn't.

point: trademark was threatening MODERATOR ACTION would happen.. THAT is backseat moderation.

I said degenerated is dodging a ban.. not that he is dodging a ban and there will be some result. just that he is dodging.

I feel it was borderline but the "Stop now" I feel pushed it over the line.

he didn't say the guy could be warned and stopped there

he said you are going to get a warning stop now..

that very much is backseat to me.

Exactly, it would only have been backseat moderation if Trademark carried out MODERATOR ACTION.

Who said I don't like you and want to see you banned? Stop sounding like a victim, I was only saying there was no reason for that warning.

Not even going to respond to the rest of the crap in your post, really.

If i have the backseat, does moderation has to wear a special hat, while i give the driving instructions?

Very well, Mr.Knorke, we have a busy day today, first we gonna drive down snacks Alley to steal a auction-hammer. We will then ban every random post between (2,8) and empty this forum, once and for all, of all Meta-stasis. After that, we force a new type of ban upon the unruly crowd. The work-ban. If you are banned for minor offending, you can work it off by posting spring advertisements in foreign boards.

Shoop 42 spring-adds to return GOTO A.

Wanna ban me for seatbagging? Nah,nah,nah. Cant touch me!
