    Maybe the staffer who banned the member you're asking about will respond to your question, either here or via PM.

    I just wanted to offer that the user guidelines have been posted, as you know, and linked several times by moderators. ;)

    When I went over those guidelines (about the third time of late) it occurred to me that this forum cluster has some serious leadership with serious concerns about the behavior of members here.

    It's a very free-wheeling, fun, informative place... and vast; the place is huge with thousands of members. That adds up to quite a range of types of folks, some used to forums where flaming and language and abuse of one another, all with little or no respect for the admins, is common.

    They need to change a little bit when they come here. And that's easy: http://androidforums.com/introductions/704-site-rules-guidelines.html and especially: http://androidforums.com/site-updat...4-zero-tolerance-policy-all-members-read.html.

    Why not PM a staffer if you have a question of this nature?

    Why even respond? I guess you guys are trying to upgrade to Moderators from the look of it.

    "..from the look of it."

    That would have carried a shadow of credibility if it were not for your posted response in the thread you're asking why others responded in.

    Perhaps a PM instead? ;)

    Also, it's a shame you can't see the content of a post as the point of the whole thing, but choose to assume an ulterior motive. That attitude could cause a person to miss out on interesting opinions, information, etc.

    I'm too boring to have any motive other than the point I feel has been elicited by the post I just read and chose to respond to.

    I see a 3 day ban that expired 2 days ago - and no real activity from the user since then.

    Will see if another ban was placed outside of the infraction system, or if the system is not moving people back to registered users correctly after expiration.

    Citing the zero tolerance policy he was given a 3 day ban for telling someone to "read the ******* manual." when they asked a question.

    Which I can agree with, especially considering his history and previous warnings.

    When the ban expired he decided to PM the moderator and tell them to "Go **** yourself."

    Which apparently resulted in a perm ban.

    Shame.

    Well, it sounds like he knew exactly what he was doing and what the results would be.

    lol... I love idle threats. they make me LOL.

    Too bad about numus though. Alot of his contribution were far above and beyond what other people give. S

    Sometimes, with excellence comes arrogance. Oh well...

    Normal service has been resumed.... my abject apologies for mistakenly deleting the thread instead of the single intended message. Sorry I didn't realise sooner but I had no 'net access at work today thanks to an ongoing 'upgrade'. :eek:

    I got put in banishment time out for 3 days because I recommended to someone to read the User Manuel to get the answer to their simple question on how to remove a shortcut. I suppose that was considered argumentative and violation of the zero tolerance policy. Which I thought was kind of harsh seeing how I see profanity in threads and provocative almost XXX rated wallpaper samples in the Forum and people arguing why 1 phone is better than another.

    I doubt this post will stay up for too long either.
