Just want a little clarification on this rule and i wont respond to the following post. Just want a touch up on this rule. Thanks.

    This is the message i recieved. So you all allow *friends* to make gay jokes because they like each other? So that is assuming i dislike people on the internet? Then look at the end of the message? Does it seem like this guy is having a bad day and taking it out on me or what? I dont have any issues with anybody here. I try to make jokes out of everything. So why is this happening to me?

    It isnt a double standard, but an understanding of relationships. It was tense here for awhile, cause One board closed, everyone came here, and it took a while for everyone to feel each other out.

    Like 5 months ago, I would have gotten in trouble for calling Dream a homo, but today it is accepted as the truth.

    Not a double standard at all. IMHO. Its relationships, virtual ones, but they are still there.

    Things are pretty loose here and each situation is looked at individually - its not too hard for our mods to figure out if someone is joking with a friend or if someone is being derogatory

It was just a joke. You cant determine how somebody is saying something from behind a computer screen. If your going to allow it then allow it all the time. When you start trying too determine who is saying what and how there saying it based off relationships then people get treated unfairly. Period.

    First of all, if someone did report you, no one outside the Mods knows who
    did, and the Mods will never tell who did. However, just because you got a
    warning PM does not mean you were reported by anyone. We are lurking all
    the time, and if we see something we deal with it.

    The principle here is that, when you are new, you circulate and just kind of
    mind your Ps & Qs for a while until people get to know you and get used to
    you. This goes for anywhere, not just here. What is a joke and good times
    between two people who know and like each other is not necessarily so
    with someone who is new and they don't know.

    I made the same faux pas as you over on another board a couple years
    ago or so. Since I was known, established, and respected on yet another
    board, I thought I could come onto the one in question with both guns
    blazing, as if I were one of the crowd. Well, I wasn't one of the crowd yet,
    and they were very quick to let me know that, and some were not very
    nice about it.

    You got a better reaction here than I did there, I'll tell you that.

    A Mod's duty is simple and can be conveyed in three words: Keep The
    Peace. When we step in, it is in that interest in which we do it. Do we
    make mistakes in the process? Damn straight. Basketball players miss shots,
    quarterbacks overthrow receivers, refs make bad calls, and Mods drop the
    ball, too.

    That is why you have an avenue of appeal to Tned. This is not the place
    to do it, actually. What you need to do is to forward the PM warning you
    got from the Mod in question to Tned with your explanation, and Tned will
    review it and come back with a determination. And he doesn't stick up for
    the Mods in such a case. He wants posters here to be fairly treated.
    Period. If he feels the Mod is right, he will tell you, and he will tell you why.
    But if he thinks the Mod overreacted or overmoderated, he will let you
    know that, too, then he will deal with the Mod . . . trust me, he will.

    The secret is to take nothing personal because none of the Mods here
    mean anything personal. All we are doing is to advise the poster where he
    or she is taking the risk of upseting the board somehow. Nearly every one
    of the active members here have received one or more of such messages.

    Get to know people first. Blend in. Let them get to know you. Then throw
    out a friendly jab here and there. Take it from someone who has been
    there, done that.

    And, even after that, if we send you a warning message, and you were
    only kidding, just tell us that. We may advise you to enter a qualifying post
    or send a PM or something. We are here to help if we can. But don't come
    back as if you think we are personally attacking you because we aren't,
    and that is not going to benefit anyone.

    Hope that helps.

    If you did not read that, then that is your problem. But maybe it will help
    some of the others who do give me enough credibility to read what I post.

    Meanwhile, this may be why you may continue to have problems on this
    board. People who don't listen usually do have a lot of problems.

    It's your loss.
