So i get deducted 1000 BTS points for saying a story of when I was in High school in another thread. I might understand if I had used Curse words or something.

So as I understand it, we are free to speak about what we want...but under sever regulation.

Screw ATS. Screw BTS. Screw the entire above network. This is getting to be more and more like the American Government that we all bitch and whine about EVERY day on this site. I can't even share a story about my High School days???

I didn't violate anything in the T and C. We are making up things as we go along now? Sounds like a dirty cop framing people to meet a quota.

Points don't mean poop

For ducks sake can't even say poop
What carp!

Don't worry, just take a break. It's only an entertainment site and it's privately owned so who gives a hoot? It's all just a bit of fun for profit. What's so bad about that? Just the mention of it "Denies Ignorance". LOL.

Listen these site "owners" are just protecting their skinny butts and wallets. I'd do the exact same but my butt is meaty and I like a clutch, wallets are so like last century.

I can empathize with your perspective. Perhaps others can too. They should try, ethically speaking.

It's not about the points. I could care less about the points. It's the principal of it. I never said anything offensive about anyone specific. I never said any curse words. Never insulted ANYONE for anything. Wasn't aggressive or condescending in any way. Yet I am deducted for disorderly conduct. It was a story about events that took place in the past...NOTHING MORE!

I am not a troll, I do not spam. And never post anything on this site unless I feel I can contribute or make a few laughs. The first time I was deducted 500 points from ATS didn't make me mad because I had, in fact, Violated the T and C.

Not about the points, it's that disciplinary action was taken against something that was in NO WAY a violation of anything.

Clearly you have some concerns with the manner in which this board is operated. You are not alone in this. But if you have an issue with something, why not approach it in a constructive manner? You are more than entitled to have your opinion here and express as you wish. But this is hardly constructive. This seems more dramatic than constructive.

Why not u2u the staff member who issued the penalty? (Please refrain from naming names) Or how about submitting a formal Complaint to have it reviewed by the whole staff and Administration.

Both of those options may find some resolution to this ordeal.

Just a thought.

Formal Complaint has been filed. U2U sent to the mod who deducted me.

IF this gets resolved, I will request this thread shut down. If not, I will post until they ban me!

The whole point of the "complaint" button would be to complain without letting the whole board know about it.


BTW, will ATS please formally change the term "banned" to "whacked"?

Man that's bad luck. Pentalties are like, five times worse than the usual whacking.

You musta really crossed the linea rosa!

How many accounts do you have?

posted on Jan, 3 2008 @ 12:02 PM
Yes that was me. Made a second one expecting this one to be banned. lol

posted on Jan, 3 2008 @ 12:15 PM
Correct me if I'm wrong but as I understand it, you can have more than one account as long as they don't 'talk to each other' (as though they're different people).

Since many ATS posters apparently talk to themselves IRL, I don't know why this is a problem but since it's in the T&C it should be followed.

I think that Spiderman guy probably has the most accounts. In fact they seem to have formed a club.

The intent of this thread was to gripe against a staff warning. What was needed to be said, has been said. This thread is now a discussion of previously banned members, which is not what we are here for.

The author can deal with this issue through the Complaint that has been submitted and the u2u's to staff members that have been sent.

Thread Closed.
