Humanity crossed, thread ban.

Hello,
Thread banned for calling comments bratty and snide.
TBF theres comments by others calling people scum, meat puppets and the like so its difficult to see the line as saying comments are 'bratty' or 'snide'. Someone used 'Snide' today. I don't see the issue. I've asked the Mod to clarify but no reply as yet.
The other poster and I had this one interaction so its not a matter of us being at it.
We both got thread banned.

Can someone look into this?
My last post in the 'Is it just me or have SF vanished?'
In Current Affairs.

Thanks.

Hello,
I have heard back from the Mod and his issue with my post. It does not justify a thread ban. Can I escalate this? I don't know what the deal is with thread bans and being moved to help.
I've no issue with the Mod I just think it was an over reaction.

Also 3 different posters have commented on my posts in the last few days. One today. I cannot reply.

The mod is allowed to post here (but not required to). Equally a CMod or Admin can look to arbitrate.

If no-one gets back here in the next 24 hours I'll have a look (I've been away for a few days and have a lot of catching up to do)

The post below was the one you were thread banned for, I believe?

You keep posting ****e theres people will dispute it. Pretty simple. You don't need to be pro SF or pro IRA to call out FG jibber-jabber based on the fear the electorate are finally on to yis
Tbh, I'm failing to find an issue here with the thread ban. The basic doctrine of advice for posting on Boards is to attack the post, not the poster. That quoted post, posted by you on the thread in question, is a straightforward attack on the poster.

To my mind, you may count yourself lucky there wasn't a card issued on top of the thread ban.

Having just approved Buford's post I will chip in as hopefully we can quickly draw a line under this

If that is what you posted I would agree with Buford's analysis and support the threadban.

I just want to be treated equally. The moderation is uneven. You just need look at the thread to see the tone allowed.

I was speaking on the tone of the post, not the poster.

He was thread banned for his remarks and I was thread banned for calling them out.

We'd a person make light of Brian Cowen's stroke in 3 posts in a very tasteless manner. 1st was a warning, 2nd was a warning, 3rd was a thread ban.
I feel my ban right out the gate was way over board. You lads disagree.
The moderation seems uneven to me.

Thanks for putting the time in.

Just to be clear

1st was a yellow

2nd was a yellow and a threadban issued simultaneously

There was no "3rd"

Fair enough.
Were I called a comment, (that got the poster thread banned) bratty and snide and I was instantly thread banned. I more called attention to it because I was seeking clarity on the reasoning as the thread is littered with 'scum' 'meat puppet' and the like.

I do appreciate the time put in. I still find it uneven.
