Extremely Shocked at DP's policies on termination

    Just to let you know I do not have a problem with rules set by DP, I think they are fair and justified.

    HOWEVER when they ban someone for multiple accounts, because two threads by two members looked similar. Well I am shocked there.

    I was banned because one of my threads looked similar to someone else's
    thread who was banned.

    I tried to appeal three times by sending emails, but I had no response what so ever.

    I had a thought that DP would react in a more justified manor.

    I was completely wrong.

    Do u think Mods are Fools to just ban a member because he has a thread with looks similar to someone else's ?

    I think mods were suspicious that you have Multiple Accounts or may be the IP's were same ? :rolleyes:

    No I found out who's other account was banned,he was from a different country and he wasn't exactly what I call a new member.

    I didn't think they would ban for just two similar looking threads. But they certainly fooled me.

    Your dumb

    Mods arent

    they wont ban you if your threads look the same.

    and if i am not mistaken, you have created another account??

    wait, dont you get a perm ban for 2 accounts??

    Confusing

    The mods here don't make mistakes. And im sure they didn't ban you because you had a similar thread with someone. Its probably because you did register 2 accounts from the same IP.

    Mods are humans, and humans sometimes make mistakes.
    Always have the benefit of the doubt.

    It is possible that someone faked your IP to get you banned but it is rare that someone is banned but not likely considering your low post count. I have never heard of someone being banned for similar post as someone else. If you got banned, you would have received an email explaining why. I am sure they had other evidence for the ban besides similar posts.

    Well yeah what i meant to say is that so many people here make threads that they were banned for nothing, but when you see it was for something and the moderators where right.

    Moderators would never ban you without a reason, especially if your thread just looked like someone else's thread. ;)

    Actually they do make mistakes. I even managed to get a ban reversed for one of my friends.

    I am not saying Mods play dice for banning people. :p.

    I am only saying that mistakes do happen. I feel the mods are a bit stringent than should be.

    I run a forum myself and always prefer to give the benefit of doubt to the members.

    Case closed. That is a confirmation that there was other evidence and that the OP is lying.

    There is an infraction system in place, when you reach a certain amount of points you are temporarily banned, once the infraction points have expired normally after a month the ban is lifted.

    You're not banned now so why do you care? BTW, I don't belive Katy was a mod at the time you were banned. Don't know how you expect her to provide details about something she wasn't involved in. My suggestion would just be to forget it and move on. Arguing about something in the past won't help anyone at all.

    And I have no idea why you were banned either, so don't ask:)

    I take back my words if that makes you feel better. :) But as far as I know (I'm a new mod here) moderators do make a research before they ban anyone, unless you receive your 10th infraction for say bumping a thread. ;)
