Look man I don't except you to type out some essay but is there any way you could give me a peak behind the curtain as to why certain people are allowed to get away with so much shit for such a long time and continue to post?

I can't imagine this is more than a one or two sentence answer. Does Jeff not want us to know or what?

I suspect it gets lifted early if the infraction is what was listed....but still.
What happened? What was posted?

Theres really no curtain. Ive not spoken to anyone about any rules or guidelines for how to mod or ban people in years. Jeff doesnt bother us at all. Just me and rmwg with redandblack and allnet when they show up every few months and whoever signs into the ISH account now and then doing whatever we feel makes sense.

Its literally been 6-7 years since we had any kind of discussion with the admins on the matter. And even that was more of a....short PM. I suppose jeff just trusts us to do whats right.

I dont tend to ban anyone for more than a day unless they are just going crazy. Its usually just some guy making the same topic over and over who I dont feel like staying up to watch for.

Based on the message he got Akrazotiles ban was ***** related as most of his have been. Im not sure why he keeps up with that.

ISH bullies did a number on Starface over the years, him doing the same thing over and over is not surprising behaviour.

I remember RMWG saying once something along the lines of "you wouldn't understand if I told you" on what constitutes a banning... so essentially he was bullshitting. There are no rules... until any one of you says there are. Arbitrary, emotion driven rules. That's fine... at least I know now. And quite frankly, that's kinda what the years revealed anyways but confirmation is always nice.

Thank you ESPN for not giving a damn what the Trump voters and the Red States think.

Its been this way since the board's inception. You can say the most vile shit imaginable about white folk and face no consequences, but say anything even remotely contentious about blacks and you're banned.
