How many Infractions have you received at ' other ' forums

The place to kick back, relax, post general bullshit, and grill a few on the BBQ. Whatever doesn't fit into another forum would go here. We periodically go through and move posts to the correct forum, but we do charge a case of Beer every time we have to.

How many Infractions have you received at other forums?

Until recently, none...but the last couple I've been at promoting TAZ I've received a total of 10... 5 of them were apparently banable offenses :D And ironically none had anything to do with the posts to promote TAZ. Apparently I broke some rules regarding posting etiquette.

I only go to 2 forums so I guess I am well below average. I don't post that much in either for4um either.

I got my first one in a LONG while yesterday. I was kinda bored so I was surfing this site where people post HijackThis logs. I used to enjoy reading thru those logs...always interesting how people manage to screw up their computers. Anyway, I found a few interesting ones and decided I'd try and help these poor souls out. I signed up and logged in, found the posts again (which was tricky because they apparently get like 20 posts per five minutes or something ridiculous like that), and gave my 2 cents on what they should do.

Two or three minutes later I get a pretty nasty PM from a pompous admin who says that unless I'm "certified" by their forum I couldn't give any advice. I proceed to see how they handle posts like that and I find that they first berate each and every person for posting the HJT log because they didn't jump through the proper fifty-seven hoops. The correct way to do it is something like use these three other applications and post all of the logs, THEN we're going to give it a once-over and tell you to use CCleaner....every single time. CCleaner is a magical tool that will fix everything for you, rendering HJT obselete.

So I read this over then fire a PM back at the "admin" telling him he doesn't know wtf he's talking about and I cite the reasons (not too difficult). I spent every day for at least a year looking over HJT logs (average 3-4 a day....sometimes none, sometimes ten or twelve). After awhile you get a feel for it, ya know? And this 'tard has the nerve to tell me my input is worthless while he/she provides terrible advice.

Same here, one of these forums is so busy that they just delete your post and give you an infraction, and because they delete it you have no idea which one they deleted...because the infraction goes noplace...so I opened a thread accusing the site of abuse of administrative authority and called them absurd are ridiculous and received 2 more infractions :D

That's why I hang 'round here. 90 percent of what we do here would draw infractions anywhere else.

I think I was briefly on the one keezel mentioned. Left pretty quick. Bunch'a jerkwads. I have more time in help desk and support than any ten of their crew and ....

Well, you know.

CCleaner is paying their freight, probably.

I can't remember ever getting an infraction... I can remember getting banned though, for being a bit too rigorous supplying proof the forums (phpbb I think) had flawed code.

I think the concept of a forum "infraction" is stupid. It's like getting a yellow card in a pub. What the hell. In fact, the concept pisses me of. I'm getting agitated by just reading this thread. Maybe I should see someone about that.

Yellow carded in a pub???? Jeez, kwiep, only you would have referee troubles in a drinking establishment. Me, I've been yellow and red carded at volleyball games and I wasn't even a player. Just an over-exuberant parent.

I normally read a post, re-read the post then carefully try to construct a reply.
I try to "suggest" rather than "tell",
I try not to upset,
I am carefull with language especially as it may be read by someone for whom English is not their first language,
I try not to use bad language too much as I do not know wether this will offend...

...then the next post is by some idiot who has read one line of my post and dived in head first with a load of abuse :evil:

There again, I've been the idiot at times :roll: but never maliciously.
How did you come to that conclusion?

So when you get a yellow card at a Pub, does that mean the other team gets a free penalty drink?

On forums... none I don't think....
IRC channels, thats a different story.
Me and a friend of mine sometimes like to get on freenode and irritated people in channels like #math, #c++, #perl, etc.... Sometimes we pick a random channel and just start trolling.

all of vt.edu is still banned from #math.
