guys being suspended

lately i've noticed on older threads that a lot 73-87 accounts have been suspended? why is this? all the people that have been suspended were always respectful and polite from what i've seen?

Re: guys being suspended

Hope this does not sound hard or smart , But that kind of info is kept between the site and the individual involved . It is a privacy issue .

Re: guys being suspended

not that i need to explain any of my actions or those of the other staff members, but just for the record I have never suspended anyone myself as the moderator of that forum. I close threads and reply to them. There are times i feel as though something has gone too far as to responses and attitude, and at that time i refer those posts up the chain of command here.Sometimes i do post my opinion to the staff as to what i think should be done, and sometimes they do go along with my idea other times they dont.. it is their call.
Very few people here have the authority to suspend or revoke any accounts here. The exception is anyone who is spamming the board (someone whose first post is advertising time shares in vegas for example) can be suspended or banned by anyone.. Moderating here is walking a fine line. You want to be fair and balanced and non offensive to everyone.Alot of times people get emotional and that leads to posts that get heated. This leads to the staff being the bad guy and in many instances it leads to alot ofbashing and people who get offended at the job we do , when in fact the staff are the backbone of this and every other site on the internet. In the case of this site, we keep this place one of the best run and moderated sites on the internet according to many who visit here.
Sometimes as a result of peoples actions here they get banned or suspended because they try to undermine authority, flaunt the site rules designed for everyone, or to just stir the pot too much . We always keep those decisions between the staff and the member in question, as that is only fair to all involved.
I do hope that this gives you and others a better understanding of what its like to be a staff member and to understand why sometimes members get suspended or banned.Please feel free to ask any staff member about our policies here or if you have any questions regarding them or this site , as we are always here for our members.

Re: guys being suspended

Im not a mod and never want that responsibility, but I do know a little that goes on behind the scenes and you would be surprised, actually shocked, at what happens in PMs and emails by some fellas that on the surface seem really cool.

I dont say it enough, but thanks to all those who volunteer their time to keep things running smoothly round here.

Re: guys being suspended

There are a ton of long time (still open) threads that have suspended people in there. When Im reading through them I always wonder what the heck did they do to get suspended off an internet board for people that like trucks .... Is it that hard to to just get along and be a decent person?

Re: guys being suspended

Most times they do not get locked. It all depends on the situation, but for the most part they stay open
