    Mods generally don't care about signatures until someone reports it.
    Also, signature infractions are literally meaningless unless you have 2 or more, since they give 4 points each, but ban thresholds are all in 5-point increments.

    That wasn't trolling, that was name calling and inciting flaming. You got an infraction as a warning
    I have enough of EA ruining great franchises and studios, forcing DRM and Origin on their games, releasing incomplete games only to sell day-1 DLCs or spill dozens of DLCs, and then saying it, and microtransactions, is what players want, stopping players from giving EA games poor reviews, as well as deflecting complaints with cheap PR tricks.

    I'm not going to buy any game by EA as long as they continue those practices.

    its funny that they don't allow what you outlined, but allow other types of political speech, especially when the shit around swifty's sexual assault was going on

    pretty cringe they let that fly but just ban all the other posts - what do you except from a buncha snowflake sjw mods tho who never leave their house. they have mod drives on this site how many times a year?

    its sad.

    fucken chill .....

    edit: I'll definitely be banned for that, just hoping you read it before it's edited by mods
    You didn't get the point. There is no point discussing those theories because, both people who believe, and those who don't, won't change their mind. The only thing resulting from such discussions is mud flinging. The discussions tend to get very heated and require more moderation. Just like politics, religion etc. That's why such topics are forbidden on most forums. Because they only create problems

    You're right, The mod owes you an apology for infracting you for the wrong thing.

    Conspiracy theorists don't need any help when it comes to being discredited.

    See above. I'm sure it doesn't feel great to have people mock you about something you can't change/control.

    This one should be obvious with how global events have been happening around this topic. It's a very difficult slope to navigate without turning the forums into a base of operations for these peoples.

    I mean I guess that's possible...but the rule is more because taking medical advice from people that do not know anything about you or your medical history can be very dangerous. Medical issues should be handled by medical professionals.

    The whole Epstein thing was a conspiracy theory at one point, and look where we are now

    Anyway, yeah these rules like "no trolling" or "no conspiracy theories" are so vague anything can be labeled as such, should the mods choose to. And they do

    In most cases people accusing mods of unfair treatment are the people who treat everything personally, especially things that go against them.
    Yep, it's the same with those shouting TOXIC! in forums and social media as games, videos etc. I see some youtube videos about people in games etc that talks about how toxic those others were. And I am there watching it and just shakes my head, because the one who is really toxic is the person complaining about the others. Some people just can't see their own flaws and since they have that toxic trigger as a emotional reaction they don't understand that the issue starts with them.

    Got a few examples here as well. A user thinks they get infraction just because they are disagreeing with people, and just ignores how condescending they are to the others while disagreeing. Their exaggerated sense of self-imposed importance trumps everything else. Textbook narcissism.

    "Why can't I make fun of autism or discuss QAnon things here???" kind of answers itself. Plenty of other places you can go for that garbage.

    Euuuhh its a gaming forum for starters.

    And joke about mental disorders....you are kidding right? If i look at the subjects you want to "talk" about. Sounds more like you are not happy this gaming forum is not a extreme right wing nest of hatred?!

    And look up freedom of speech laws in general and the forums guidlines. They are well within both of them to moderate like they do.


    But lets look at your points:

    Not allowed to ask about medical issues. <<< euuuh its not a medical forum
    Not allowed to discuss mental disorders. <<< there is nothing to discuss. again not a medical forum. and hacks with bad advice and no experience can do more harm.
    Not allowed to joke with above. <<< only very low life/sick/ a bunch of curse words people make fun off problems like this.
    Not allowed to discuss conspiracy theories. <<< good. this is not a extreme left or extreme right wing forum. And again, these things hurt people.

    It is just about moderated enough to prevent the forums from devolving into an alt-right cesspit.

    Don't like it? Go someplace else.

    Pretty much, so many threads got created with the sole purpose of antagonizing people and sparking a flame war and often nothing happens until we're 10 pages deep, people are shit flinging left and right and the moderation just locks the thread then, nothing more.

    Not gonna even talk about off-topic / political cuz things were 10 times worse there until I filtered them out and stopped checking, but I can expect nothing improved on that front.

    Also prepare this thread to be locked too for "discussing moderation".
