    Infractions can only be given by moderators.

    Profile Infractions (such as the one being discussed) aren't linked to any particular thread.
    SEMrush
    I didn't leave the infraction but you do start an awful lot of threads!

    So, are we limited in the number of threads? I usually post here what I post elsewhere when I find something interesting to share. Isn't starting threads what a discussion forum is for?

    It doesn't matter what you post elsewhere. Every board is different and has their own set of rules. This is DP, a webmaster forum. A lot of your threads aren't relevant to the forum niche.
    Celebrity photos for free? We could have gone without that thread. Not to mention the one about Jerry Seinfeld.
    Is this other forum you're talking about an entertainment forum?

    Yes it is, but this IS a webmasters and internet marketing forum. You have started 290 threads and only 9 of them weren't in General Chat, Freebies, P&R and other offtopic places.

    Now, there's no problem hanging out in General Chat but most people utilize the other parts of the forum too!

    With all the respect to the new mods, I also don't like that you guys/gals close lots of fun threads in general chat.
    Of course they are pointless, it's General Chat, all threads in there are pointless ;)
    I can see your point though..

    Other than that, good job making DP spam free

    You can always report the thread and have them reopened... we slip up from time to time, must be the mod v1 software we're running ;)

    Well, I own over 100 domain names for potential development so check out and belong to the domain forums BUT all work and no play make Dave a dull boy.. I frequent the General chat on all the forums I go to and post interesting things I find (like freebies) because that's also what I post to my blogs, etc. Finding things on the Net is my specialty and what I like to do.. talking about domains is not fun to me.

    I didn't realize I'd be penalized for sharing things like free magazines, etc or posting to a General discussion section of the forum? I would think that any interesting post should be welcomed?

    Just because one person isn't interested in Jerry Seinfeld doesn't mean there aren't 5 more who were.. just my 2 cents.

    I agree, but as spidermans uncle said!

    With much power comes great responsability!

    I believe the DP mods are doing a good job! THANKS DP

    Take it as one moderators view, consider the opinion, reject or accept the feedback and move on.

    Oh, and I love Jerry!

    Sure, if you're one of the thousands of high school kids and part-timers here on DP. However, for other folks who utilize DP as an integral part of their everyday business transactions, I think it's extremely fair to say that he has not only has a logical reason to be concerned, but also to ask for advice as to what he did wrong in the first place. Especially when only 10 infractions can get you banned here on DP. I've seen way too many threads started here recently where a member simply gets written off after they have asked a legitimate question. In fact, the irony is that responses like "oh just get over it" or "stop bitching that you received and infraction", are all posts that should be given an infraction, (according to DP's current rules), because they add nothing to a thread.
