Lux, with reference to the OP and our "moderation" methods I'd like to explain the situation.
Many years ago I was a troll. Not a particularly refined troll such as yourself, but an effective one nonetheless. I'd spend hours reading forums looking for ways to insult and abuse the staff. My time in the army meant I needed an anarchistic outlet - forums provided that. This behavior ultimately led to my banning on every GW fansite out there. (Well every online community I've ever joined in any niche)
Bellends, Warshite, Dakka (dakka don't get a pseudonym because I like them), 40gayforums, Librarium-Offline and Fat Fuck Argos' Power Armour Fappers.
I'm banned on each and every one of them - and I'm proud as punch about that. I created Heresy as a personal challenge to compete with them (and avoid being banned). You could call Heresy the ultimate spinoff board - created by a narcissistic polymath. (look that up, its what I am
don't fucking dispute it or you'll get some of this
My mantra when I created Heresy was a site without Mods. A site where words like CUNT, FUCK, BOLLOCKS and SHIT were commonplace and widely accepted as stalwarts of the English Vocab. After a few months of spamming and fighting with other sites and basically jumping up and down screaming "LOOK AT ME YOU FUCKING MORONS - I'M THE NEW KID IN TOWN" we grew. Really. Fucking. Quickly.
At this point I had to rethink the strategy and tightened the rules a little. I brought in adults
like Vash, Wraithy and Galahad to control not only the site, but me. Because back then, I swung that banhammer like Thor on Steroids. I'd ban you for misspelling anything whilst misspelling the ban message...
I've mellowed with age though and I feel we as a site have too, we now have a great attitude towards moderation. We're not a bunch of overzealous morons. I've sacked 4 or 5 mods that let the banhammer slip up their arse. These days I'm usually the one telling the staff to relax and let CUNTS (the endearing friendly version - if you're not British you won't know what that is) like you post your retarded bullshit because its compelling and gets people talking. You to me Lux are worth 20 normal members, every show needs a badguy
We have the most able, interesting, fair and professional staff in the entire 40k world. You won't find people like "Wintermute" here.
One of the new mods called me a cocksucker in anger...3 weeks before I gave him the staff reigns
that shows how mature we are. Stop fighting the system... because frankly - there isn't one. Its 20 friends sitting round a table in the boardroom calling each other names and having fun with the occasional begrudging trip onto the shop floor to sort out the riffraff.
