Have you been banned on another forum?

Recommended Posts

I still find it quite simple to tell if its sarcasm. At GTA Forums, is it common to just get banned straight away? I have never been on there but I have heard that they are so dodgy when it comes to banning people. I may have to have look.

Oh sorry, 6.

It's still not grasped by some people that sarcasm doesn't work properly through text.

Here's a tip: when I say something highly unintelligent, and follow it with the Hurr Hurr smiley, it's sarcastic...

SAMPLE

Yeah, the Jonas Brothers are AWESOME

:hurrhurr:

Here's a tip: whenever you say anything, be it followed by emoticon or not, no one takes you seriously. Please go away and die now, we are getting tired of this level of retardation. It's not a funny retardation, it's just plain annoying...

I was banned on GTAF coz me and some Bulgarian had a debate about Macedonia in some thread, so I was temp banned for 3 days (also for posting random off topic things) So then I made a new account jOkEr_xD and started using that.... and I continued the debate with that account so then I was banned on both accounts.

Ever since then I've been coming back like once a month, and sometimes I get banned on the first day, sometimes It lasts a month lol.

Let's be honest here...

You helped drag that thread off-topic with a debate-war complete with YouTube video, for which I believe you were warned, but you were banned because the next day you went on another spam jaunt... this little gem is the straw that broke the camel's back. The Staff got tired of it. But still, you only got a temp ban.

Coming back to continue spamming things up didn't help your case either. Circumventing your "time out" is what got you banned on both accounts.

Looking at your post history, we can see you had a habit of popping off one-liner spam, unwarranted comments, and other off-topicness.

They're "strict" over there because you're just one of a thousand other knuckleheads acting the same way. No time to coddle 'em all, nahmeen?

Granted, there have been a few (and I do mean ONLY a few) bad moderators there, but an examination of those who complain about being warned/banned will show a similar pathos.

Just sayin'. :rolleyes:

I've seen at least one poster in this thread who recognizes why he was bamped, and has come to terms with it. These are the kind of folks who are frequently let back in if they want. But you play like habibi, and of course your IP will be blocked.

off-topic: Hey Girish B)

You just couldn't wait to bump a one year old topic, so you can relieve from GTA Forums's "awesomeness".

Meh, it was not off-topic, still open, and the whinging here bleeds over into GTAF, so I figured I'd say my peace.

... and y'all complain about GTAF being this way... wow.

See ya.

A year later, you git?

Ouch. That hurt. I think I'm gonna cry now.2jawzrt.gif

Have the topic locked. Then you won't have to get your panties in a bunch and start calling people names. :wacko:

After reading the last page+ of off-topic lulz, now I can see why the whiner crowd likes it so much here in their protected empty cove.

Hey, cheer up though. At least you guys got 10% more stuff going on here than at GTAHole. Especially all the mods and tools created by GTAF members.

And English too... at least the site's not written in Farsi or something. :rolleyes:

Look, I didn't come here to piss in anybody's punchbowl, I just came to see what the hubbub was about. Now I see where all the kiddies who couldn't handle a real forum community wound up. Sheesh, you got some chip on your shoulder. You mustn't have a mirror; if you did, you'd see the sweet irony.

Do you honestly think I give a darn if someone of your stature (I say this word with every ounce of snark contained within my tiny body) thinks having a lax attitude is a detriment to this site? Obviously, I do or I wouldn't be responding, but that's beside the point. I'm sorry we're not bustling enough for you, but consider that a good chunk of the longtime members are too concerned trying to get an education or feed themselves to post that much about Grand Theft Auto, especially with a lull of information pertaining to the franchise. Despite the inactivity compared to a year ago, I rather enjoy the tight-knit community we've built here, especially out of the "rejects" as you would call them. The rejects who, through careful moderation and a thoughtful community, matured into decent netizens; I certainly became more polite, though I admit I could use a few more anger-management courses. I prefer it to a thousand intellectually bankrupt vermin requesting a save after a not-too-particularly-difficult mission everyday.

Look, I didn't come here to piss in anybody's punchbowl...

Oh, you didn't? Explain this...

...Any of those mods you made or are you simply posturing to make up for the unfriendly climate I and plenty other members perceive your forum generates from some of our experiences there? This is kinda like talking to a Varg Vikernes fan who believes his revolting racism and crimes are excused by his musical genius or to be more topical, someone who thinks Roman Polanski doesn't deserve jailtime after drugging and raping a thirteen-year old girl because he's made some groundbreaking films, had his parents slaughtered in the Holocaust and his wife murdered by the Manson family. "Talent" doesn't justify douchebaggery; that's why Guns N' Roses has been dead for the past fifteen years.

I just came to see what the hubbub was about. Now I see where all the kiddies who couldn't handle a real forum community wound up. Sheesh, you got some chip on your shoulder. You mustn't have a mirror; if you did, you'd see the sweet irony.

I'm looking in the mirror right now and all I see is a damn handsome young man if you give him some cool shades and spiked hair. Funny you bring up "irony" though, because I doubt GTAF would tolerate, say, one of us going over there and bumping a year-old topic to quell any misconceptions none of them would give a flying fuck about.

EDIT: Me? Polite? Commence laughter.

Heh, you're kinda fun. :lol:

:blink:

My stature?

Check my member title. It says "Nobody Special", and I'm reasonably certain that's accurate.

Yes, there was no need to fly out and "git" me right off the bat. But maybe that's not considered bad manners here... :mellow:

More like 340,820 intellectually bankrupt vermin. It's not an easy job keeping one of the world's largest franchise fansites in a coherent state. You should give their Staff a little more credit.

Look, I didn't come here to piss in anybody's punchbowl...

Hey, I just give back what I get. We can keep it civil, yes? -_-

...Any of those mods you made or are you simply posturing to make up for the unfriendly climate I and plenty other members perceive your forum generates from some of our experiences there?

I didn't see any of my mods here, but then again, I haven't released a mod in 6 years. I was more into file cracking. Guess where that was happening. :)

... I doubt GTAF would tolerate, say, one of us going over there and bumping a year-old topic to quell any misconceptions none of them would give a flying fuck about.

People bump old open topics all the time there, no problem. You know what the key is?

Be on-topic, and add something constructive to the thread. Maybe some of the more pompous or know-nothing Members complain, but let 'em. They don't run the forums.

No Staff EVER bitches about bumping a topic if only those two conditions are met.

All too often though, some wackadoodle bumps an old topic with "zomfg! I remember this!!1!" Big difference.

BTW, as far as "misconceptions nobody gives a flying fuck about", I read this old thread and had nothing to add... until I saw habibi's little half-truth about his illustrious history at GTAF. I just figured you guys deserved a little more truthful treatment. But then again, maybe you wanna stick up for the little trolling liar. Maybe you never saw how he operated there, but if you're cool with him here, then hey, OK. That's all you have to say then, instead of calling me a git for constructively adding to a thread.

I think so, too. I am cursing a lot less than I used to.

Now you're a Shoplifter; enjoy your promotion and go get me a melon roll from the 24/7 in Purgatory. Anyway, in case you missed this little ditty:

...I say this word with every ounce of snark contained within my tiny body...

I was being facetious in saying that, even if you were someone of importance at GTAF and the stature remark had merit there.

It should go without saying, but I'm not representative of a typical TGTAP member. I just get away with being so easily-annoyed because of a regrettable subforum we did away with years ago. Either that or the mods are asleep, attending a university, getting laid in the West, or what have you.

More like 340,820 intellectually bankrupt vermin. It's not an easy job keeping one of the world's largest franchise fansites in a coherent state. You should give their Staff a little more credit.

Granted, it's been a few years since I've had any experience with GTAF, but I picture the average staff member asleep in his own drool with his nose continually pressing the ban button. When he finally wakes up, he suddenly finds himself in a thread declaring the Earth round. "WHAT. The Earth is FLAT. Topic locked and OP IP-banned, bitch! Now to send my inflammatory email to the OP to rub his nose in it. Never mind that nothing's capitalized and that it's devoid of any punctuation to speak of, I must inform the OP that's he's a n00b, BY ANY. MEANS. NECESSARY."

He admitted to making several off-topic posts, that was all I needed to ignore him. Then came the revelation he was a sock-puppet using cretin. More importantly, what do you care if such an inactive forum had a former GTAF member attempt to demonize the staff and utterly fail because everything in his post indicated he deserved it? Even on the off chance we were stupid enough to buy into his bullshit, we would've forgotten about by now considering it was a year ago.

That's a lot more than just "bringing a little more truth" to habibi's story.

His illustration looks like nothing more than an excuse for you to make an account and try to demoralize our community because you can't help yourself do anything better. I have no idea if people in other GTA forums talk badly about us, but there's the thing: I DON'T KNOW. Unlike you, I don't go out of my way and lurk around other peoples' forums as a guest, and when I see anything that's less than polite regarding my site, I don't go and make an account so I can talk trash to them for a couple days.

Good job leaving another "nice" imprint of what the GTAF community seems to be.

You edited your post after my response to add that, duh. <_<

That would describe one CharmingCharlie, and he's been dealt with. The average Staffer there is pretty respectful these days. If someone gets some hot words in their inbox, it's likely they earned them.
You're lying:

... no, you're confused. That was not in my OP. The horse pulls the cart, not the other way around. Relax a little ;)

@rockstarrem: Chilled, aye. :D

I was and am aware that wasn't in your OP.

The latter of my post that you coincidently left out(and didn't address to)leaves my point valid.

FUCK YEAH! Internet arguments!

Feel free to carry on. I'm actually kind of curious to see just how long it takes for it to reach a conclusion anyway. I have no idea what it's about though, tl;dr and I doubt it's very interesting. Anyone care to sum it up in a couple of sentences?
