Just a straight-up poll. No need to debate/divulge what your warning was for, if you got one. I’m just curious since I have read repeatedly that “the vast majority of Dopers never get a warning at any point.” I do believe it, but just wanted a poll to see how vast that majority actually is - 75%, or 98%, etc. No need for embarrassment either, it may be that you got warned for something you can be proud of.
Believe it or not I’ve been warned about being a jerk twice. I sometimes make snide comments when drinking and when I go back and read them the next day they don’t come off as funny to me either. So I tend not post when drunk anymore.
A couple poorly timed or misunderstood jokes that I regret. But also a couple for being a complete, over the line jerk to some real assholes who needed it. I do not regret those. And those assholes are gone now.
one for making JFK/Dallas references in a trump inauguration thread one of the members as part of the camera crew for tv and one in a truck thread when I didn’t clearly state I was repeating someone’s opinion …
Not once in my 20 years here. In the past year or two, there’ve been a handful of times where I’ve been annoyed enough with a fellow Doper that I’ve considered making a post that would likely draw a warning, just because I was that annoyed, but discretion and niceness have prevailed so far.
This describes me, although I’ve only been here since 2007.
There was once that I recall that I got pretty pissed off at a poster that I thought was being a jerk. I said some heated stuff but I tried to refrain from crossing the line, and I’m pretty sure I failed. I resigned myself to a warning and left the boards for a few days. I returned to find that the other poster had been banned for being a jerk and the mods had said not a word in response to my rather heated post.
