    couldhavebeen abused, personally attacked? Seriously??
    I did not see anyone getting abused or personally attacked. Lets not exaggerate this and it certainly wasnt the intention to do so by any of the posters.

    This happens all over BF and is completely reasonable.

    A poster with a good posting history who posts something they shouldn't will often get the benefit of the doubt. For the most part this discretion isn't misplaced.

    A poster with a poor posting record gets less leeway, either because they are less concerned with the site rules or because they are an idiot.

    The Administrators have thrown out the mods' edict, reversing the infraction. So there's your answer. The infraction couldn't be explained because there was no explanation that was fit for public consumption.

    It's all well and good for Stronzo to now come out with shocking statements about the manner in which the mods actually operate. But no mod currently in the role could afford to admit that Bushie was being treated unjustly, that they had penalized him because he was someone they personally didn't like and wanted banned (so that nice chaps like Defacto could wander around the boards more freely). Much easier to play the victim and milk the unsuspecting for expressions of sympathy - telling tales of imagined personal abuse when the only abuses actually inflicted were those heaped on a highly-valued poster with no apology.

    Of course you would say that. Your team benefitted from the application of the Ballantyne rule in the Preliminary final.
    It is not fair to apply rules differently and opaquely because of an historical opinion. And we see plenty of idiots (trolls) coming on here who get treated more favourably than they should. So there's more to it than just "a poster with a poor posting record".

    Once again Crippa your perspicacity is wasted.
    This crew have genuine disregard and disinterest.
    It's an agenda deeply disinterested in equity.


    EDIT:That post got me a trophy!

    Stronzo whilst you may see this as a shit stir and anti bushie crusade. Its actually a little disrespectful. Theres actually some significant concerns among a group of posters. Not alot in number but the calibre of poster who have issues should be respected. Clems Knee , scon and Crippa & alot of others are not trouble makers nor newbies nor prone to rant on about issues.

    1. I would say that because it's true. I'm talking about the entire site. The "Ballantyne Rule" isn't peculiar to this board.

    2. It's not opinion, it's objective fact. We can see infraction history and view each infraction. Serial offenders usually have their own thread on the mods board/cigar lounge.

    I'd describe it more as a pro-bushie crusade, and there's nothing wrong with that. I'm not privy to what occurred. It seems like an error of judgement may have been made, but I'm only guessing.

    My issue is more with the conspirital and hyperbolic posts made by of some of the zombushie disciples. If I didn't know better I'd swear he'd been made a martyr by an oppressive regime (feel free to use that line guys).

    This is an Internet forum. He got carded. He might not have deserved it. It seems it was overturned. Some posts were deleted along the way. A thread was closed. Perspective went out the window.

    The zombushie's , really. :rolleyes:This shit fight is about the apparent unfair treatment of Freo posters while known anti Docker trolls have been allowed carte blanche to lay crap on us on the main board and then come on here and do the same.. It wasn't a one off occurrence ,it was allowed to go on on through the season so much so that some good posters just left the board in disgust . Great for the trolls who achieved their objective but poor form from the mods who allowed it to happen.

    Zombushie disciples had me giggling.

    I think the crusade had more to do with fairness, it just happened to involve Bushie.

    He may not have been made a martyr by an oppressive regime... yet. That will probably depend on how long his exile from this board lasts.

    With all due respect to Allikat I did not do any of the above and certainly didnt see any such posts made nor would I expect to see such posts.

    Surely the test would be if you abused or personally attacked a Mod you would be infracted OR at the very least you would be warned as such. The fact that this did not happen and the VAST majority of posts were "liked" several times would indicate agreement with the post.

    Infact I dont like this accusation being tossed around the forum.

    I wasn't suggesting that you personally posted anything abusive . I was answering your post as to what I was basing my previous post on .A lot of the poor posting was done on the Mcarthy board which got deleted by MODs

    how many trolls did we really have though throughout the season?

    we were top of the ladder and barely lost a game, i can't remember us being invaded and trolled all year.

    some people in this thread need to calm down, go and enjoy christmas and down a couple of eggnog's.
