…I don’t deny being angry. But being angry isn’t specifically against the rules. I don’t deny being argumentative. But I only posted five times in that thread, where Martin Hyde posted twenty times in that thread, was argumentative with multiple people, and only got a corrective mod note.
So was it the fact that I was angry that I got banned from the thread? Because s2k wasn’t angry, so why were they thread banned as well?
Why was a thread that had been open for less than 24 hours deemed to have gone “so far off the rails” that it was closed in the first place after an exchange of only 10 posts? I took part in the JK Rowling thread that went on for probably a year that got more heated than this. I had zero expectation that my posts in the unmarked grave thread would earn me a thread-ban. I’m still unclear on what line I crossed and have been awaiting clarification from the moderators.
And I point to how Martin Hyde was treated in this thread as a basis for comparison. (And for the record I don’t think Martin Hyde should have been thead-banned at all)
