So, what happened? I was posting/replying on the 1.29 dev server speculation thread minding my business and all of the sudden a mod (apparently mods are staff) trolls me, so I call him out for trolling. He promptly deletes my posts, I call him out again and .. wham! he notifies an admin that banned me:
Warning issued by auscam for Staff Abuse in Profile. Given 2 points.Suspended for 4 daysYou have been warned before about your comments. There is a system in place to report posts if you feel so inclined. To openly accuse a mod of being a troll is also unacceptable and amounts to staff abuse and against forum rules as would it be against a forum member.I submitted a ticket to support, quite curious on what the reply will be.
You have been suspended for 4 days for your actions. Please reflect on those actions during this time.
If mods are payed for harass and trolling people on the forums, well this particular mod did a good job. But if mods are payed to moderate, well ... he did a piss poor job.
Note: auscam is not the mod I'm talking about (he just issued the ban), I frankly don't recall his name.
