  1. #11
    I got infracted for a posting a review about a product! :O

    The infraction read, the post was inappropriate and I could have used the PM system! Really? for a review!?

    Better post your contents here in NB than DP, it's worth your time and no risk of getting banned

    One time I got infraction for posting thread in General Chat. It says duplicate thread.

    My thread was merged. Here is my thread's original post. I think this was wrong.

    And For rest of my infractions, they were Ok, I made some mistakes. I got banned three of four times but I did mistakes to get banned..

    I agree with you it is the similar case in my country too. DP has certainly to do something about its rough rules

    As a mod on a couple of forums I'm starting to get the impression a couple of countries have maybe two internet connections. I'm envisioning a big crowd around a grass hut where Gilligan is watching the Skipper and the Professor tune in the internet on a transistor radio.

    I understand the pain of the mods when it comes to a huge stack of spammers coming from the same IP, but it does cause a problem for the honest users if nods dont take the extra steps to check for other indicators besides an IP match. In some cases it's clearly all from one user or a cadre of paid spammers... but there are plenty of instances where good users get caught in a sweep that shouldnt have included them. Basically boils down to lazy moderation or inexperienced moderation when that happens.

    There actually are some excellent mods mixed into the group over there, but I get the impression they are outgunned, undermanned, and have their hands tied in many cases when it comes to dealing with real offenders. Sounds like a no-win situation for the good mods and for a lotta honest users. Spammers & scammers tend to ruin things for everyone else, and they're thick as fleas over there.

    btw - @chillingbreeze - The scammer you were trying to report over there got banned last week.
