I was banned for 10 days for 'trolling/spamming' for posting the following articles in politics and society:

http://themindunleashed.org/2013/12/36-foods-help-detox-cleanse-entire-body.html
http://earthweareone.com/stanford-scientists-observe-man-travel-out-of-his-body-and-into-space-what-he-saw-was-remarkable/
http://earthweareone.com/new-study-shows-cannabis-does-not-lower-iq-but-drinking-alcohol-does/
http://wakeup-world.com/2012/10/05/eight-ingredients-you-never-want-to-see-on-your-nutrition-label

I think these are the links I posted.

I would like to know why I was banned for presenting informative articles with a link to the source in each one.

At this point it seems to be a form of censorship, directly or not.

I would like to continue posting these articles.  If you feel that they're in the wrong category, you're welcome to move them to a more appropriating category.  I do not see freely speaking of validated, sourced articles on a discussion board as a misuse of the community.

I would appreciate a response addressing the concerns provided.

Considering users don't get banned for scamming, that's not the reason.

I was not caught scamming.  Jesus, even squall said he didn't think it was intentional.

This was directly after I posted the articles, within 2 minutes.

Yes they were deleted after minutes.
One article is almost a year old, while another is ~2 years old, and the others are more recent, although I don't think there is any real rule agains posing "aged" information like that.

I would wait for BadBear to respond, as he tends to be pretty fair and should be able to give an explanation.

You know why you were banned - copyright theft. (Fitting crime for a thief.)  I reported all of those posts.

You cannot copy and paste an entire article, even if you post a link back to it.

If you want to post your garbage, post one or two paragraphs, and a link back to the original.  Can't guarantee you won't get banned again though, since your posts never contribute anything to the community.   Undecided

That was not the reason I was given for the ban.

And posting articles is not copyright theft, are you fucking serious?

People post articles all the time.  And the people that write those articles do so for them to be spread.  When you just post a link to an article, people complain that it's not included in the post.

I want a valid reason from a moderator or admin, last I checked you were neither vod.

I even included the article within a quote bracket.

What you're saying is equivalent to saying quoting people is okay but quoting their entire statement is not.

This is nothing short of censorship, and whichever mod did so gave vod discretion to influence a ban.

What would happen if I flagged vod's shill posts as trolling?  Not shit.

As long as I don't copy/paste an entire article, committing copyright theft, why would they delete it?

Grow up idiot and stop stealing people's work.

It would be looked into. Trolling is against the rules, however it is something that is very difficult to investigate and moderate.

IMO what vod does is not trolling, he is simply voicing his concerns and opinions, that happen to be contrary to most scammers

That was not the reason I was given for the ban.
The underlying reason for your ban was because of your greed.

Greed for attention.

You will never experience the ecstasy of true ego death at this rate, not while trapped in your endless cycle of greed.

Because your posts weren't related to your debt default.
Nothing else matters anymore.

Why not start a thread entitled "My serious plan to man-up and pay my debts instead of burying my head in the sand."?

I guarantee that one won't be censored or banned.

Mods will very rarely comment on the specifics of why you were banned and even more rarely will advise as to who issued the ban to prevent harassment from people that they banned.

I think if you want an answer then you should act as diplomatically as possible to show that you will not harass him once he reveals his "identity"

It always depends on the copyright restrictions and the intended use.

Well in dank's case he was just spamming entire articles with *zero* input of his own.  He doesn't contribute to this community at all.

I don't have any beef with dank. I think a lot of what he says is a little bit off the wall sometimes and has made some mistakes in the past (taking out the loan from scqual). I do however think that he has good intentions and is trying to make an effort to contribute to the community. I think he should be given the benefit of the doubt

You are misguided.  dank has the money to pay squall partially back, but he refuses to do it.

Squall already gave him the benefit of the doubt and made a payment arrangement.  dank kept his word for a few payments then stopped paying altogether.

You want us to give a known thief a THIRD chance?   Roll Eyes
