People overestimate how many people this site bans
 
This site is a great site. There are many people who think this sites bans too much. Most of this site's bans come from people who were already banned. Many people think this site bans any person who posts negative nVIDIA stuff. This is simply not true. I hate it when people flame this site because it "bans so many people". I bet this site hasn't banned anyone in a long time(besides people who were already banned).

A good portion of those people we've banned more or less subconsciously anticipate being banned at some point. Follow with me here for a sec: Communication begins in the head. Whatever a person intends to say or write is all pre-meditated to some degree in their head. They just have to fill in the details from Point A to Point B, etc. It is at that stage where the voice of conscience speaks up in their heads, too, and that voice usually says either, "That looks like a well-thought out response on my part! A good quality post!" or "This'll probably get me raked over the coals or banned!!"

The bottom line? Simple -- those people we've banned had that latter thought float accross their minds just before clicking the "Submit" button ... and didn't care. They clicked "Submit" before the voice of reason could pipe up! And they continue to ignore that voice even though the "EDIT" button is staring them dead in the face. These people are usually given so much rope here by us that -- true to the old adage -- they eventually hang themselves with. So, instead of arguing/proselytizing to them ... we just oblige them!! ;)

Psy is well-seated on his rocker! :) Well said. I never have any personal vendetta against anyone. There are no strings pulled or reasons to wear tin foil hats as some like to imagine. I've learned from this. My mistakes don't define me, they inform me. A better approach can (and will) be exercised in the future.

Good to hear you realize that you have some room for improvement Maz, there might be some hope for you.

Vamp, you I just worry about anymore. :(

People who dont like this site, Tend to try create as much drama as possible, You will find the people who scream the loudest are always heard.

It doesnt matter if what they are saying is relevent, or if they are even right.


I "like" nvnews, I always have, When I first came to this site over a year ago, Something about it stood out to me. The community was friendly, The mods treated you well, And I was able to communicate with them. They always communicated back with me. If there was a problem. I took it to them in PMs. Nine times out of ten the staff here bent over backwards to help me.

You may not like the decisions mods make some of the time. But you should respect them. The mods work everyday to try an ensure the community upholds a certain level common respect among members, Because once respect goes out the door. Then The communities go to hell.
