First of all there is no legal issue to this (I doubt anybody could sue over a mod decision on a message board ), people are free to object to a decision. Of course nobody ever follows the set criteria for doing so, they prefer to cry and whine about it in public instead of contacting another mod or admin via pm.

In my opinion a mod lis like a policeman. He reprsents an assinged authority. He determines who abides the law and who not. He decides when he intervines and takes action. This role is surelu needed. But has to be done in an imparcial way. Making jokes of one IHV and banning posters who are subjective to on IHV but not banning psters who are subjective to another IHV is not being imparcial.
I've made it quite clear to people that as long as they don't cause trouble and act like jerks I will be completely fine, of course you get idiot trolls turning up causing nothing but trouble. I refuse to show them one ounce of respect as they deserve none. I've made plenty of wise cracks at NVIDIA in the past, it just so happens that at the moment I am having problems with ATI drivers so I'm making fun of that. Nobody has ever been banned here simply for supporting another company, some would want you to think that but the truth is that those who are gone have been long time trouble makers, some of whom have been banned previously but who we gave a second chance and they botched it.

What I meant is the agreement between Nvnews and the poster. Anyone who signs up agrees with the T&C of NVnews.

Well, let's just say that different people have different opinions. I will leave the discussion here as it seems you will maintain your point of view and I will keep my opinion.

Rgds,
Andre

Andre, it appears blatantly clear to me that you have not spent time at other message boards. nV News is one of the most fairly moderated sites on the Web. It doesn't matter if you support ATI or NVIDIA or Bitboys, if you're a jackass you will be dealt with promptly and harshly. There are certain "other" video card sites that aren't moderated nearly as strictly or fairly.

One thing everyone has to keep in mind is that this is a privately owned message board. Posting here is a privilege, not a right.

Yes Chris it has gotten hot around here and I am surprised you have not caught on fire yet being that your almost always right in the middle of threads that end up in flame fests.

Thank you sat for your post

Don't know what happend with my previous post (never mind)

It is blatantly clear I ahve spend more than 4 years on different forums and my experience is that NV new is moderated strcitly but not always fairly. Again this is my experience. Other "video" boards are moderated by mods which are of the same calibre or quality. Again my opinion!

That certainly is your opinion, and if you do not happen to like the way this forum is moderated, you are free to leave at any time. You are very much in the minority when it comes to the views on how this board is operated.

Nothing wrong with a little spirited debate. You can't expect everyone to think alike or have the same opinions on a certain subject. Sometimes people should just be able to agree to disagree on a certain subject instead of beating a dead horse. The personal attacks and cheap shots need to go however.

Yes, you can. And I'll kill anyone who thinks otherwise!

if you were here last year around this time you would know what FLAME BAIT and related threads were all about m8... this is nothing...

the other boards I personally go to happen to have as many or more technically proficient people but all boards have the same general breed of spammers who detract from regular threads with inane banter... I don't doubt I have posted some inane banter myself but when the topic is serious and the tone as much I do take a slightly different stance and post in that manner...

the boards here ARE moderated fairly... if you have seen bannings or closed threads it is generally when the people concerned have already been warned and the like... we may not always agree with the mods decisions, believe me I don't all the time... but the mods have a right to make the decisions they do... we have agreed to the terms and conditions of the boards when signing on here...

there were certain liberties given and abused when the nv30 discussions were on-going and certain of the liberties that were abused have been scrutinised more so now than they were before.... so in that sense there is a slight change... other than that the general atmosphere is pretty much the same as it was before...

a couple of people who have chosen to leave have left with sour grapes and bring it up on various boards across the net... it happens everywhere...

also consider all boards are different nvnews is not obligated to conform to the standards and expectations of people who choose to partiticipate in discussions... however if you hang around and keep an open mind and join us on the IRC channel you will notice that its not all bad

Maybe its the change of season as we slowly migrate over to spring and summer but hot blood sure does seem to be boiling..
there are some things said which I definitely agree are in bad taste or can be construed as such...

I think your 'bloopers' list is pretty damning... but I have 2 words for you...

POLITICAL FORUM



check it out to see what tense discussions are all about m8...

How boring it would be if things didn't get a little heated at times... Variety is the spice of life.
