Title: No, seriously what?
The Ultramind12 - April 12, 2009 11:11 PM (GMT)
If you've ever been to gameFAQs and to any board I've been on in the last... quite a while, you'll have noticed my sig, which goes something like:
"To those that disagree with abortion: If killing a small cluster of cells is murder, then every time you fap, it's a genocide." - blackforestrifle
Fap is, of course, censored with asterisks. I've had this sig since... a few years now, I think?
And now, finally, someone got SO butthurt by it that they had to suspend me? Fuck you too, GameFAQs.
Edit: Really? Offensive? I was able to put fap in it uncensored at first, and then one time when I altered something on that page it told me to censor it, so censor I did. That was QUITE some time ago, and no action was taken against me.
The rest of it may be controversial, sure, but offensive? Only if you're some incredibly whiny-ass pro-lifer.
Or a troll. Hmm, maybe I shouldn't have posted on the Black Knight message board, considering it consists entirely of trolls who claim to be Sonic fans but obviously aren't.
Another Edit: Best part!

I'm not even allowed to tell you how much bullshit this suspension is? FUUUUUUCK YOU.

Action: Suspended (Top)
Status: N/A - No user-initiated action has been taken on this moderation.
Moderation Reason - Offensive
Offensive Material -Users may not transmit or encourage others to transmit material or links to material considered patently offensive in nature. This includes, but is not limited to using vulgar, profane, or sexually explicit language; using race, religion, sexual orientation, culture, ethnicity, handicap, nationality, or gender as a means of insult; using threatening, harassing, defamatory, hate-speech, or libelous language; and posting, requesting, or otherwise sharing material considered pornographic, obscene, graphic, or hate speech.
Some additional notes on the Offensive rule:
* Using terms for homosexuality as a means of insult in any way towards anyone or anything is considered offensive. This includes insinuating certain people (including video game characters) are homosexual in an insulting way, calling things "gay" as a synonym for "stupid", or using offensive slang terms for homosexuals.
* Discussion of rape or incest should remain serious; jokes or humor about rape are generally considered patently offensive.
* Several other words and terms are flagged by the site censor when a message is posted, and users are clearly warned about the connotation and use of these words on the site. Failing to abide by the warning presented is a clear violation.
* Links to sites with content that violates these terms are not permitted. Warning users about offensive content in a link does not grant permission to post that link.
* Links to images or sites displaying images with nudity, near-nudity (i.e. see-through clothing, very skimpy coverings), or depictions of such are not permitted.
* Images or descriptions of sexual acts, genitalia, or clearly graphic material (shock images, defecation) are considered offensive as well.
Please don't tell me abortion jokes actually count as offensive.

The lovely thing about "Offensive Content" is that anybody could say that anything offends them and get away with it.
The Ultramind12 - April 13, 2009 01:28 AM (GMT)
Pfft, so its offensive to one person. Tough shit for them.
Robtcee13 - April 13, 2009 01:46 AM (GMT)
GameFAQs doesn't operate under the rules of tough shit.
The Ultramind12 - April 13, 2009 08:08 PM (GMT)
They could at least let me fucking contest it as a bullshit suspension.
Is there anywhere I can fucking contact ANYONE to contest this? Explain myself?
I mean, the site never told me that I had to change it except for the one time it told me to censor "fap". I never looked at that page since then, of course, so I wouldn't have gotten any other warnings, so that ain't my fault.
Also, considering I've had this sig for I think a good TWO YEARS now, I'm pretty sure someone would have found it offensive by then.
In fact, one time a while ago someone whined at me for making fun of abortion arguments. I told him to shut up because it was a quote from someone else and that he was being a whiny little bitch, if not quite in those words, and that was the end of that.
If it's suddenly become offensive, then I'll change it, but they have to GIVE ME THE CHANCE TO FUCKING CHANGE IT FIRST.
And GameFAQs most DEFINITELY operates under the rules of "tough shit". Or rather bullshit.
The Ultramind12 - April 13, 2009 09:00 PM (GMT)
Okay, so, looking through the rules says I can't contest it at all, and my fate is pretty much in the hands of whatever admin.
Except I still didn't fucking do anything wrong.
Abortion isn't covered under ANY of the rules and I've never received warning for it. Going straight to a damn suspension without letting me change it is a bit overkill.
Robtcee13 - April 13, 2009 09:05 PM (GMT)
Yes, yes it is. Although I have a tame signature, so I don't think I have to worry about anything more than the occasional 3kl because I still don't quite know what's allowed and what isn't. I mean, I posted a relevant post in a topic and it said it was trolling just because I posted a video to accompany it. lol wut. I didn't bother contesting it because I've heard stories about these mods being dicks, so... Also;

The Ultramind12 - April 13, 2009 10:26 PM (GMT)
Okay, crisis averted. I'm warned with a 10kl, so apparently the admin that reviewed it had some sense.
Robtcee13 - April 13, 2009 11:00 PM (GMT)
Oh darn. And to think we were getting activity here.
Robtcee13 - April 16, 2009 06:01 AM (GMT)
|Your signature is appended to the bottom of every post you make. If you choose to manually change it, note that it must still conform to the maximum size limitations (2 lines, 160 characters), and you must still use the standard signature divider (three dashes, "---"). If you fail to meet these guidelines, every post you make could be considered Disruptive.|
While we're discussing rules, what the hell is disruptive about having a slightly longer signature, or a different signature divider? Also;
So I don't think it was likely you'd have been kicked straight to suspension at all.
