    Question to any of the Mods

    Well, I've been known to ask some stupid questions in my life, so here comes another one.

    I was looking through the foul language thread and noticed that folks would get notices(?) from the Mods and that there was some sort of points system here for "offenses." Could someone explain to me exactly how this all works? I was trying to find if I had any "points" against me but couldn't figure out how to do it. But, I'm pretty hopeless with computers, too.

    Top of the screen... click on your screen name. Then there is a tab called "infractions". But you'll get PM'ed if you are getting flagged... you don't have to wonder. Or so I hear, I mean.

    Yeah, you'll get notified. Trust me, on that.

    How come all of the replies come from VIP members? Are they the only ones who get the infraction points?

    You'll know - It's not a contest, you seem bummed to have not gotten one - I wish I could get mine removed, it's like a scratch on a new car - I keep staring at it.

    You have no infractions or warnings or infraction points.

    Now when I just checked suntzu I thought (at first glance) that I was looking at a page ripped out of a dictionary....under the letter "I"

    No, but we've been 'round the dance floor enough to have seen what happens. Yes, some of us have been "dinged" once or twice, some erroneously. But when it comes right down to it, the in-and-out types who earn such infractions tend not to be around long. (You'll not be hearing from most of them, as they're no longer here.)

    Word. But, Suntzu's such a nice poster. He couldn't possibly ... could he??

    Thanks QK and everyone else. No, not bummed Thunder, just pleasantly confused as per usual. Comes with the advancing years.

    Don't worry, if you mess up you will receive a notification, and has been mentioned you can always check yourself. Fortunately most folks learn after a warning or their first couple of points. However, there have been those that have insisted on working their way up to the 50 point automatic ban level, and a couple that couldn't understand that we have, and enforce rules we have found over the years to be in the best interest of the forum (we call that death by Mod).

    You only get so many of um and you gain points for each one you get. sometimes you get just a warning and no points. once you get one though, they never go away; they do however expire.

    Had a couple of run in's when I was a yearling. Yup, got the "Tee" shirt to prove it.

    50 points, wow.

    I got a warning once about a copyright and learned my lesson pretty quick.

    Get your post count high enough and I bet you get away with a few bad words here and there.

    I'm convinced it has far more to do with name-calling, abusive use of the words that are used, or use of the few "bomb" words that aren't tolerated. Tangling/arguing with the mods also doesn't fly well. Nor does continued retorting/hijacking outside the OP's original post intent (that's one I'm intimately familiar with, myself ; damn my stubborn nature, in that regard.).

    As QK indicated, merely using a word here and there in speech isn't what does it. And folks of all stripes have been invited to leave, some fairly high post counts included.
