In a post a few days before, KNIGHTWRITER was told the following One of the things I've noticed (as a CR and now RSA) is that many people feel that if they voice any disagreement with a Mod...that they'll find themselves a target for constant "warnings" and "banishment." To which KnightWriter replied Constructive criticism from any viewpoint is not going to result in a warning or ban. If you can provide an example of this happening, please do. I'd be interested in seeing it. I want to follow it up with the following, which was also asked of KnightWriter And there are Mods who are less inclined to take action against someone who typically is in line with their own views...like that user is some kind of saint! To which KnightWriter asked Can you provide some examples of this? We all have our biases, but what counts is whether or not we let them affect our judgment. Well, I can think of one. First off, we are talking about 2 years ago, and I am not sure if you were a moderator back then, but one of the reasons I took a hiatus from the boards when I left in April 02 and came back in november of 2002 (albiet, it was to gloat on the 2002 Elections), was because one of the moderators of the time, one KESSELRUNNER was specifically banning me for 'trumping' his arguments. For example, we were having a discussion on Bi-Lingual education. He posted some very, VERY faulty information. I came back with something that irrefutable thrashed his claims that was well in part of a legitimate debate. He at first kept deleting my posts , and then said I had not come up with anything. I posted it again and he deleted it and warned me. I was not going to be disuaded from something that was well a part of the debate and posted it again anyway, which he responded by banning me.
