POLL: Banning People Who Abuse the Staff

I know most of the moderators at this site (at least, I have seen them in action around the forums) pretty well. Well enough to know that none of them would abuse their power. If something like that happened, I think I can say with fair certainty that it was well justified. However, in any case, this thread should ALWAYS be read before posting on the forums: Link

That will give a rundown on everything inclusive to posting on the forums etc. It's basically the rules that the moderators use to govern actions on the forum. If it is a blatant case of moderators abusing their power, the administrators can take action, but trust me, the mods here know what they are doing. I highly doubt they would ban someone without just cause.

All of this is basically why I see no need for a new rule. And just so I'm clear, I'm not attempting to back-seat moderate or any such thing. Just trying to be helpful.

TRUST. I continue to pay for CH services because I TRUST (not expect) that CH will have day 1 trainers and stay reasonably up to date on the lastest games, and to their credit, they usually deliver

The jerks that make abusive comments to the staff are EXPECTING day 1 trainers, perfect trainers immediate updates; they feel entitled.....

CH is run by humans, not cyborgs with no need to sleep, have a social life, etc. Just because someone has a paid membership does not give them the right to make abusive comments to the staff, they are not your slaves.

So yes, HELL YES, members that continually berate the staff should be given a vacation, and if need be, a permanent banning.

Please define "Social Life" i am unaware what this is. However as for the banning of rude/inconsiderate users i say no sorta. I think a temp ban/suspension ( depending on your preference in term ) would be more appropriate except where it is directed straight at staff or is so out of line its what needs to be done.

I personally don't think about banning a member unless he crosses a certain limit. And you can trust me that I've had loads of members not agreeing with my moderator warnings and making an argument about it. I would only encourage such arguments unless they get ugly. If a member isn't polite with the staff, and carries on abusing them, I would definitely holster my banhammer!

My example wasn't here. It was a "DS code site", which I won't name atm...lol. I'm sorry if I wasn't clear on that point.

Like I said, I've had a great experience here. And the mods I've seen have all had way more patience than I would have in their shoes. I was just trying to make a general point about stricter rules only working in a trustful enviroment.

Oh, ok, I apologize for misunderstanding what you meant. I definitely see where you are coming from, and I also agree about the whole "trustful environment" concept.

If games are being retired because of people *****ing, then HECK YES, it's time to ban people that offend the staff. I'm all for it!
