    Keep in mind that when posting on a "hostile" site the Mods will ALWAYS favor the home crowd.
    Those are people they correspond with - or at least read posts from - on a daily basis.
    You, as the outsider, are always a troll until proven otherwise.

    That means that certain hypocrasies come into play.
    For example, "Cheesy" claimed Viking fans have no balls - a blatant insult.
    Was HE banned?
    Likely not.
    But your retort put you on a short list.
    By stating that he could come "talk" to you at the game further escallated the situation.
    Was it a threat of physical violence?
    Depends upon how the reader interpreted it - I can see the arguement for both sides.

    Bottom line, behaviour that might have been taken with a grain of salt by a forum regular landed you in the pokey.

    Now to be completely fair, I'd agree that the exact same thing might occur on ANY site where an insider and an outsider/interloper exchange mildly heated or charged posts.
    It's simply the nature of the beast.
    Did you "deserve" to be banned?
    Probably not.
    But since you were, I'd be interested to see how Cheesy was sanctioned - after all, it takes two to tango, and he led off.

    Bottom line, when posting on a new board, be excessively cautious early on.
    Once you're known and accepted, the boundaries of acceptability are braodened a bit.
    Once you've built up some credibility, you can exchange more heated barbs with the natives.
    But, until then, your default setting of "Troll" is written in large neon letters over every post you make, and most mods on most sites will hawk you.

    Just something to think about.

    Excellent post my friend.
    Excellent indeed.

    ;D
    Just another reason to hate Packer fans and their sites.
    JK!


    Seriously, look at the thread below.
    That guy was an idiot, got redirection from Mods, and finally he was put in purgatory (not banned).


    I would have treated him differently if he wouldn't have started the thread in the Trash the Pack forum.
    LOL!
    In away that made him come across as a conscientious Troll.
    LOL!

    Hello everyone. I am a moderator on PF.com and have been hearing about this site. Not all bad, good too mind you. However, I feel it is necessary to clear a couple things up.

    marstc09, I am sure that you are a nice guy. What got you banned was a combination of things. First you insulted Cheesey by insunuating you had sex with his wife. Then you insinuated you would physically harm him when you made the statement
    "I will be at the first Packer game in Lamblow. I will come talk to you about this."
    http://www.packerforum.com/index.php...sh=25&start=25.

    Personal attacks are not allowed on the site. Warnings are issued, followed by suspension and banning if it persists. Personal,
    physical threats are cause for immediate banning.
    We try to run a fairly clean site. We ask that everyone post as if their own kids will read their post. While razzing and insults fly, they are allowed with good intentions. Vikesrule (whomever he is on this site, I think I know) is a perfect example of a rival poster and how one should act on a rival site.
    Question:
    are homosexual slurs allowed?
    Because that's pretty much what the updated nickname that
    was given to Mars is.

    Question:
    is it okay for someone to call Mars a douche?
    Because that's what happened, and then Mars said (paraphrasing) "Okay, I'll be at the home opener for the Pack, you can call me that to my face and we'll see what happens."
    That's not a threat.
    That's standing up to anonymous internet bullies who feel they can say whatever they want, because they are hidden by a screen-name and a speedy connection.

    we encourage and invite rival posters from here to come to our site. However, we expect respect as people,
    just as we expect our members to respect you. You will get razzed about being a Viking fan but that is to be expected.
    I expect to be razzed here for being a packer fan .

    As far as the delay in getting approved for membership to the site, all apps are screened so that the DNS address can be checked against banned individuals. this started about a year ago when some unruly bear fans and packer fans went over the edge and kept trying to sign back in with a different username. the address checking has to be done manually. While it takes a little while to get in, I think you will find the site enjoyable as if you were with your close friends who just happen to be packer fans.
    It would be more enjoyable if it weren't so god-awful slow.

    Now, with all that done with, kudos on getting Allen. Should make it a little more difficult to pass on you guys. Have you done anything for the offense?
    :-\
    Bernard Berrien and Thomas Tapeh are the big additions in FA.

    Have the Packers signed anyone?

    =Z=
    Packers haven't signed anyone of note. A lineback Chillar (sp?) from St. Louis. We havent done much in FA this year or last.

    no, homosexual slurs are not acceptable and are usually attended to. I gues I am not aware of the nickname. In the smack room names and insults are thrown around alot. But there is a line between caling someone nutless and going after family or spouses. Cheesey did go over the line too and it was addressed. Mars did not invite Cheesey to "come talk to him about it". Mars stated that he in fact would seek out Cheesey and "talk about it". Yes, I viewed that as a threat as if someone after a heated argument wanted to talk to me face to face.


    Nice post Caine. I hope I am not viewed as always favoring the home crowd. I am a hockey official and I pride myself in trying to be nuetral. we have banned packer fans too from the site.
    12 Championships with more on the way. GoPackGo!

    So, a Mod changed Mars's account name to reflect something of a homosexual name?
    Wow.
    Maybe the Mod should not be a Mod then.
    Hell, if somebody wants to be an ass here we will just pound them into the ground with our wit and intelligence.
    In the past, if someone is just blatantly an idiot and is just throwing insults we will give them a neat little title.

    I highly doubt this "cheesey" character had anything said to him.

    You stated:
    no, homosexual slurs are not acceptable and are usually attended to. I gues I am not aware of the nickname.
    But changing a members name to "LooseCheeksMcGee" is acceptable?
    That's the same thing as calling his queer or any other slur.

    He can't show you that.
    Hell, he was not aware that you were slurred with a homosexual insult (kinda hard to miss since it is your banned name there).
