    Moderators trolling

    I've behaved myself in public for too long. I have to call out the mods on this one.

    From the Off-Topic rules:

    Forbidden Topics
    ...keep in mind the post contents/subjects that are not allowed:

    Posts that contribute nothing ("what does this have to do with WoW" etc)
    Meme replies (LOL, TL;DR, OVER 9000, /thread etc)
    Image macros and image memes
    "Do my homework for me" threads. (Asking for a push in the right direction is ok.)
    Religion
    Race/Ethnicity
    Nationalism and nation bashing
    Conspiracies
    Sexually-explicit/Nudity
    Sexuality, Gender, Gender identity
    Medical Advice
    Do-it-yourself weapons or explosives (Use common sense!)
    Content that is dangerous or considered illegal

    A mod slamming religion when religion discussion is forbidden. So if someone were to try to refute such a statement they would then be in violation of the rules and be punished for doing so. This is probably as close to a perfect example of trolling as I can imagine.

    Bring on the ban. I probably need a vacation from here anyway.

    It just says "Religion". So my interpretation is that the post itself being a religion is what's not allowed.

    Oh boo fucking hoo so a Mod has an opinion. Ever thought they are human beings like us too? Oh and also I do believe Moderators should be valid for infractions however if they aren't at the moment. Again my opinion.

    If you have issues with moderation, talk to a global mod.

    Considering half of this forum is stuff about nation bashing, gender identity and conspiracy theories I think the forum rules are basically ignored by everyone at this point.

    Infractions are applied at the discretion of the mods.

    Also, considering people get away with saying a lot worse about religion in general...I don't see the issue.

    This belongs in the fun stuff section.

    If Fencers had stated a specific religion then yeah, the OP would have a point. As it is, probably not but I have been infracted for less

    If you have an issue with moderation/a moderator, please bring it up with the Global Moderators. Creating threads like this doesn't help in the long run, and it's also not allowed.

    Closing this here before it gets out of hand.
