No wonder guys like JimmyJames, Press Coverage and others bailed......Wheres the common sense?
Fat, drunk and stupid is no way to go through life
queer/kwɪər/ Show Spelled [kweer] Show IPA adjective, queer·er, queer·est, verb, noun

You gotta go all the way to 5 to get to the slang........but im an ******* for having a larger vocabulary than the average mouse and actually knowing how to use words properly.
Im definitely one of the more lenient mods when it comes to infractions and such. You have to be blatant about it for me to hit you up. Most of the time if its borderline I just shoot a PM or something telling the parties involved to keep it calm and civil. If I see a post calling someone a "queer little troll," Im hitting you up 100 times out of 100. Thats about as blatant as it gets. I cant tell if youre joking about finding fault in that or not. If youre serious, all I can tell you is that nobody uses queer to mean strange anymore. This aint the 1600's.
Besides, points only matter if you intend on repeatedly receiving infractions. You wouldnt believe it based on the length of our banned users list, but getting banned is pretty hard.
I'd say the mods do a darn good job in controlling the PoFo which is not easy to do. They also do a good job differentiating between attack the post and the poster. Saying "your post is stupid" is not equal to saying "you are stupid". Saying "your opinion sucks" is not equal "you suck".
And then of course: reputation. Reputation can be a bitch.

"You may think that you are some kind of god to these people. But we both know what you really are."
"What's that? A criminal?"
"Worse. A politician."

http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/sideshow...193820748.htmlAn Applebee's waitress who posted a receipt with a note from a pastor complaining about the automatic gratuity added to the bill on the Internet was fired on Wednesday after the pastor complained to her manager.
Chelsea Welch, the waitress, wrote in an email to Yahoo News that the pastor (who has since been identified as Alois Bell) told Welch's manager at the St. Louis-area Applebee's that the ensuing firestorm had "ruined" her reputation.
Know what that pastor should do? Turn the other cheek. Its unfortunate that pastors dont have a moral code to follow, perhaps in the form of a book that instructs them how to behave during difficult or embarrassing situations. Oh well.
