I've created this account to see if my situation can get sorted out.

After over 4.5 years activity on the forum, my Legendary account has been banned.

My username is yeswepump and my profile is https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=500098

Since there's no explanation on why account was banned, at https://bitcointalk.org/modlog.php I can only see:

Quote
Autoban user: N/A in topic #0 by member #500098

I did a search and I could find only this post:

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=4720640.msg47529080#msg47529080 where I was added to a list of spammers?

In fact, on Nov 3rd, two of my messages were deleted. I posted in two threads a link to an airdrop (yes, it was required by the airdrop itself) but there was no reflink. See the deletion message I received:

Quote
A reply of yours, quoted below, was deleted by a Bitcoin Forum moderator. Posts are most frequently deleted because they are off-topic, though they can also be deleted for other reasons. In the future, please avoid posting things that need to be deleted.

Registrati per ricevere 3000 gettoni ZINK GRATUITI del valore di $ 300 (1,53 ETH)
1 ZINK = 0.00050ETH
DEVI avere un indirizzo Ethereum ERC-20 con almeno 0.0005 ETH per richiedere i token.

https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfDqgbO3PFzW385mRSzunNbahZ69qW8fLRRCjG7g_Jsxhr4mg/viewform

Frankly I don't think this was spam, as the thread was https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1424389.0 which is indeed dedicated to airdrop links.

The other post also deleted, was the same message translated in English, posted on another Airdrop English thread: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=2726305.msg47513890#msg47513890

So, even if I'm not so fully convinced that I posted against the forum rules, my posts were deleted and I really don't care about that!! It's more than fine, I should forget about airdrops!

But was that the reason to perma ban my account?

I really hope that I can keep my love for this forum, and that I'm not forced to go away forever, as it seems the rules are clear in this case.

As per the report, you and a bunches of accounts were posting the airdrop link in various sections. I am not sure whether you have been banned for this reason or not.
 If you are banned for this only,I think there is a misunderstanding (barely can happen, I never have seen) since you have said that you have posted in a thread where airdrops link are posted.
Wait for output from a moderator.

~

Legendary. Without reflink, but publish in wrong section.
I see that they publish in a variety of sections, trying to cover all sections of the forum. I think everyone of these posts is spam, except for those whose posts in the sections Bounties (Altcoins) and mb Tokens (Altcoins)

Just wait OP for some user that will come to check your profile on why your account has been banned. The modz are also human being so probably they could commit mistakes. But, modz has great percentage of accuracy on banning account. I suspect that it is plagiarism. I am still checking your profile history posts and probably will help to bump this thread so that other users can get in and help also with your case.

Again, I suspect that the banned was all about plagiarism so let us wait and see other user's input.

Update:

Your post

This will be good to be reported as plagiarism if only you put the reference then this could be a different story.

As above, plagiarism. This was the post that was reported:



this looks like something like a DPoS chain where, delegates are Provisioners but in this case Blocks generation isn't a delegate's task but there other light nodes doing that. I've yet to understand why is more efficent then a DPoS system

I think I saw something similar in Multiversum blockchain project: it looks like something like a DPoS chain where, delegates are Provisioners but in this case Blocks generation isn't a delegate's task but there other light nodes doing that, but I've yet to understand it correctly...

Ok, this sounds a very stupid thing I made, you are right. Don't even remember why I made it so, two months ago; it's not my normal way of contributing.

My last suggestions:
- users should be informed of their mistakes, so they don't repeat it (same as for deleted posts/threads, there should be a warning or an explanation)
- maybe reputation should consider these mistakes as opposite to merits, nobody is perfect but there should be an overall
- I appreciate your way of trying to keep the place clean, but direct ban to people that contributed most times in a proper way, and for years, to me it sounds a bit too much

Again, I made (at least) one mistake. As by rules (frankly I didn't read about this plagiarism strict rule before today, but it's my fault...) I'm out. If there's no mercy, this is my farewell to this community.

it's not my normal way of contributing.
So, your normal way of contribution is-
Announcement (Altcoins)
Bounties (Altcoins)
Token (Altcoins)

Sometimes, your posts go with your username too.
pump=bump, some posts are looking like a clear bump.
How else you do contribute  Cheesy

Please be sensible that is not plagiarism that is a cryptopia announcement  posting that to alert people here who may not have seen the notice their coins are danger if they do not see this is totally helpful.

Let's not start being completely crazy here.

His other one yes that is stupid error. I wonder if there are more or just an isolated case?

You can see it is announcement from cryptopia in the first line.  


@s therapist

What exactly do you mean about the Announcement board in the altcoins section? I don't see what you mean?

Nobody should need a warning to not plagiarise content. It blows my mind that people even think to do this and there's no excuses for it, but that's greed and laziness for you. You can argue that it's harsh but that's how it is around here right now unless theymos says otherwise. I agree the rules or punishments for plagiarism should be displayed somewhere more prominent and shown upon sign-up, but again, this is only something theymos can implement.

There's usually more but one is all you need for a ban. Staff aren't going to go though all their posts and tally up all the ones we can find as it's just a colossal waste of time. I probably wouldn't have banned him for that ICO announcement but it still should be properly quoted and sourced.

Judging by the appeals we see on Meta, the most common reason for banned accounts is pliagarism and passing works and contents of others as you own idea. The mods could express liniency in other cases, but on the issue of copying and pasting or worse,  copying, spinning words and pasting there is no softer penalty and should not be.

And I don't think it matters whether it's an isolated case. The rules are straightforward, and available for all to read and adhere to.

hillarious etc

are you referring to the penguin coin swap  announcement?

I don't consider it a waste of time for a legend account in light of what theymos has said, the reporter (not the mod) should have the onus on them to evaluate the account they are reporting and suggest a punishment. There can be many reporters but hardly any mods.

Or another possibility is  offending legend pay a mod 0.1 BTC to review it properly and see if they consider it to meet certain criteria to be net positive.

I am seeing a few legend accounts going now. These are not you typical bot spammers and frequent plagiarist text spinners that are ruining the board.  Well not unless there are frequent instances not being reported.




@Kopyleft

you are wrong. and it is easy to comment when your account is a few days old and not something that people may have put years of hard work into. also you have not spend years reading constantly here have any concept of the history of some legends here and what difference they have made.

it is quite annoying to see people here 5 mins and at time gloating at legends getting banned for 1 or 2 mistakes.

what are you even doing on meta? i know this is the easiest place to gain merits but get on on the real boards and start becoming parts of crypto projects , join some communities, contribute to them, learn, find what ones have real passionate developers with specialised use cases and are capable of finishing their designs. What are you doing lurking around a board you have no real connection to as yet on the sub board concerned with the mechanism of how to improve the function of the board.?? seems weird i didnt even know about meta for several years.

Fair enough case closed.

Why do they even appeal if it just not 1 or 2 mistake and not for financial gain.

Best thing to make a sticky telling them to check they are not just general plagiarist offenders who seek only financial gain.

What a waste of a legend account. These are not going to be that easy to build from scratch now.

Yeah, that ABCC one is particularly damning since it was blatant plagiarism and he attached his own referral link to the bottom. A complete waste of an account, as you say, but I have little sympathy for people who have been on the forum for years and haven't once bothered to read the forum rules. We teach children not to copy each other's schoolwork/homework. Why would grown adults think this is acceptable behavior?

Still, on the plus side, we get two more boxes marked off on our bingo cards!

Don't even remember why I made it so, two months ago

direct ban to people that contributed most times in a proper way, and for years, to me it sounds a bit too much

If you had read my post clearly you would have noticed I was replying to Kopyleft on that part.  
That is why it says @kopyleft, anything under that notice is for the attention of kopyleft.

I am sad you lost your legend account. I was trying to help you but it seems there are too many instances for me to try to build a case in your favour.

 I still think even though there were several instances they are still like announcements now that i look at them again really so it's not exactly as trying to claim as your own work. but then adding ref link will might mark you down I am just saying that due to more being found quickly by people it is hard to fight against it.

However if they are banning for just 1 and there are lots there is no point to try now unless they are all announcements? the cryptopia one is an announcement so I would let that one be okay for sure....especially as that one is to actually help people get their coins swapped over before it is too late.

 This is vital piece of information actually or people can lose a lot of money. That post kopyleft wrongly mentioned is actually worthy of merit for you really. I will explain why. People owning coins getting swapped for new coins often will not tell others because the less swapped over the more their stake is. So the fact you are telling people actually does tell me you are not actually a scammer. telling people of a swap date actually reduces your stake. I have missed out on a few swaps that cost me quite a bit.

I suspect it was lost in the language barrier that I was trying to help you??  I am the only person here that feels legends generally should be allowed a couple of small mistakes over the years.


Oh well.

Your best hope is directly with theymos I would say.

Appreciated your help, thanks! My mistakes are there, even if there should be a lot to say for each quoted case, I can't delete them.

My point is, what would happen if each single user is "scanned" like me today? How many would survive?

Since I read mainly the altcoin sections, I would say that 90% of posters there should be banned, if the rules would be strictly applied. But I don't think this is the way of handling a community, banning everybody.

Some people commenting this thread have rather new accounts, and since the very first post, they completely respect the rules and make no mistakes. They born with all this "how-to" knowledge, or they just opened another account and they are here to gain merit as you stated, which is once again against the rules?

In almost 5 years, I posted over 1600 posts. Is it correct to ban me because I made some mistakes? My overall reputation and positive feedbacks are nothing? Did somebody complain about me or my posts, except the one that I clearly copied? Zero tolerance for everybody, or only for me?

I think this forum has the privilege to lead a movement. It should include more and more people, not only kick them out.

I would introduce zero tolerance from today forward not for early days offences for sure. But legends whom have even some posts predating the rules and from an era where there was hardly any incentive to post for profit then I would certainly give some chances to them. Not instant ban.

Honestly if you look lots of legends have been banned already. I am concerned we will lose lots of legends. I would prefer to lose only scammers and spammers really if possible.

It may be worth it making a thread of banned legends so that if later there is possibility of in depth evaluation later then you can be on it.

It's not good to see lengends banned I hate losing the older members.

Zero tolerance for blatant plagiarism. Enforcement of other rules may be different and is not relevant to your situation.

Zero tolerance for blatant plagiarism. Enforcement of other rules may be different and is not relevant to your situation.

Let me start this by saying I have actually made a mistake in this thread from what I can see. I thought he had more copy and pastes (which he has) and I salute the reporters for trying to weed out scammers. I was thinking this was case closed.

However....

Please study this carefully. I have a lot of sympathy for these particular copy and pastes the more I read them. I think he deserves another chance here. Or actually on the basis of these he is being misunderstood especially on some of them.

1. the cryptopia alert about the coins swap = great post worthy of merit - save people a lot of money and stop them getting scammed by devs who do sneaky swaps and keep vast bulks of the minting.

2. the other one is annoucement regarding the project on their face book and is just an obvious update for the community = worthy of merit too.

I am particularly sensitive to this one because I was asked to help a (great legitimate long term project) and I was going to be responsible for copy and pasting their latest twitter updates onto  the bitcointalk thread for them because they did not have time (no financial gain for me just doing it for free for them to keep the bitcointalk members updated on news.  I am more of a fan of bitcointalk than they are and the community thread here to me is more important that moving to slack and other places. It is important the community here for that project is kept updated. Not everyone checks the projects twitter or facebook really and projects can look dead even if a lot of work is being done and reported on social media.

He could have a strong case if there is not much more.  

I should have read it more clearly before.  I didn't see he was copy and pasting from the projects facebook news to the same projects thread. I originally though it was a lot more real plagiarism or scam posting.

I support the work reporters are doing 100% and it is a lot to ask them to find and then do a complete analysis.  However on the basis of just what is presented he looks like he isn't deserving of perma ban.

If there is more then I can't say but only going on what I have looked at so far.

News about a projects face book pasted to their thread is not negative it is very positive for this board. If people start leaving bitcointalk because the news updates are not here and having to go to the projects social media that is crap. Projects got their start here and should not after they have extracted btc feel they no longer need to appeal to the members of this forum or keep them informed.

If there is additional that are not beneficial that is a different matter.

I will try to prevent any legends getting banned for this unless they are truly plagiarists and negative to the board. However I do support the work of those reporting real plagiarism and getting the alt sections back to being more easy to use.

You're missing the point of why plagiarism is bad. It's not because the content is worthless. It might be very useful or even meritorious as you pointed out. It's because of the attempt to pass it as their own.

Had the OP added quote tags and source it would have been fine.
