Reason for User Ban

There's a difference between people just not liking you and constantly posting nonsense in the Deals forum where people have to wade through that crap to find actual coherent discussion of a deal.

 

Almost no one talks about deals in those threads. They're sparse and they're all covered in the OP. If you want to use the "off topic" excuse, everyone in those threads should be banned.

Every time a post goes without being liked, does that mean everybody dislikes it?

 

Damn, that's really deep.

Thanks for reminding me why I stay out of the deals forum.

 

I'm always on the hunt for that off-topic discussion.

If he got banned, it more then likely meant more then a few people didn't like him, not just the mod.

so in that vein, since I don't like you, you should be banned, correct?

People tend to forget this site is more than just deal alert hub. If you want that, you could use a great many different sites that work to that effect, like CheapShark, IsThereAnyDeal, etc. Or you could opt for more deal focused forums like SlickDeals, SPUF, Reddit, etc. CAG is a community beyond that, where people communicate, make friends, play games together, etc.

 

For those who enjoy this, cool. For those who don't, the OPs are usually updated very quickly and give you a full list of what's on sale on the retailer that the thread is for (Steam, Amazon, etc). Complaining about people for talking with each other is asinine.

Obviously not what he was saying. The guy he was responding to had the logic of "If some people on a site don't like you, you shouldn't want to be there." He was just replying with an equally ridiculous line of reasoning.

Either way, you have your answer, if you don't like it, you can leave. What else are you looking for?

Calls this what you may, but I would say that Blacks actually benefited from the slavery. Comparing the current lives of many African Americans to Africans, one can see that the former live in much better conditions with greater freedoms and opportunities.

I wish the mods would do one thing: zero tolerance for fanboy disruptions in deal threads. Even / especially under the guise of "I'm just trying to save people money on not buying a crappy system."

See: titanfall bundle thread, any wiiu thread.

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

my $.02 on this:

 

If TImbo can post all the crap he does in PS4/XB1 threads with horrible grammar and not get banned, yet this guy does, that means something is not right with CAG.

Who are the mods on CAG these days, anyway? I don't really see many of them post anymore, and, I don't think any new ones have been appointed for quite a while.

Well, why don't you just report him if you really want him banned? Or did you already? I just really don't see the reason. IP bans don't work or are not issued. He will be back if he really wants to be.

I have no idea who the offender is, but I'd imagine you're just seeing the result of crappy, inconsistent CAG modding.

 

I was IP banned for making an account to get past a silence and PM a mod, while that guy got permabanned, made a new account, and is still alive and kicking. That's CAG for you.

I'm kind of new to CAG so I don't want to step on any toes, but it seems that if a user is going to be banned they should at least be given a reason or a chance to resolve an issue before being locked out completely. If a user is about to banned they should have an option perhaps where someone cannot post but still has the ability to log in and talk to a mod to see if the issue can be worked out instead of just locking out the account completely. Just my 2 cents, for what its worth. Banning someone without a reason also leaves it to a guessing game to other CAGs as to what is and what is not acceptable, since no one really knows why a user was banned.

All correct, and all extremely common among most forum modding systems. CAG is just run by mods who are more or less grandfathered in from knowing Cheapy for ages, and thusly can do no wrong. Cheapy himself pulls a lot of inconsistent nonsense and doesn't help the situation at all.

 

But as you can see, even when directly addressed and asked questions, Cheapy and the mods have completely ignored just about every comment here. The system sucks and it isn't going to change.
