Ive been meaning to get this off my chest for a long while and i might as well post it here;
Basicially, Id just like to hear if you think its fair or not; because personally its almost like bullying.
I joined a forum not too long ago called WW2 talk and as soon as i joined the folks their were just akward, For example i made a thread that i wanted
help getting to sleep (its a pretty big problem for me and the Doc prescripted sleeping tablets for me in the end)
So yeah i made the thread and minutes later a few people were giving me a bad reputation (i dont know if they have it here but on that forum you could
give people good or bad rep and you get some badges or something etc)
and people were saying things such as quote "Tw@t get to bed" "But what I ask myself is; if 'Militant' was up very late, and maybe a tad
Then later on i make a general thread called Was the british empire a good thing (It interests me all these old colonial empires) and the majority of
the people who posted seemed to enjoy ganging up on me,
"Could you have a smaller signature and why did you post the same question three times ?
I've deleted the other two posts asking exactly the same thing. "
And later he said,
"A most excellent post , Militant.
It's actually shorter than your signature.
That must take some doing. "
What a mod said, sarcastic or what? (hes also the guy who called me a twat) For a start i didnt mean to have such a long signiture i thought it was
my profile and i was merely listing my family members who died in the war.
Then some other guy said THANKS MILITANT and laughed and said i was a chav.
Another chap said i always talk in the wrong tone and pointed out further flaws and said the writing style looked terrible.
Then (i updated my sig) and said something that i wanted to be a soldier once i got my history degree, and some cowardly troll said i talk a load of
rubbish and then quote "you actually want to die in a war?"
Of course i dont, i just want to serve my country and besides being in the army doesnt acctually mean your in combat all the time; in some army jobs
you dont even learn how to fight, ie communication etc.
Then i dared to challenge that mod (Owen) not rudely i just asked why he was up so late (after all he kept saying get to bed blah blah.)
And immediately people sucked up to him and said
"Owen's a Mod - he asks the questions not you.
Show some respect, get a grip of the site rules or leave"
So hes allowed to bully and im not allowed to even ask him polite questions?
What a jerk.
Then Bang. I was banned by the Admin and in the reason box,
You are banned indefinately
Reason: See you mate
Then i checked the thread and people were all on his side surprise suprise saying things such as "Good call" and whatnot and then he further
insulted me and then said that theyve done my "homework" And another tried to be cool and posted "another one bites the dust"
Tell me, what did i do wrong? I was always polite and asked a few questions and i got ganged up on and eventually banned.
But it gets better,
I joined another forum called WW2f I lasted longer on there, posting, helping out people, welcoming new members, ecetera and not once did anyone
salute me or give me good rep and this one time i mentioned what happened on the prior forum and the same kind of thing happened, but later i was
supposedly racist by using the term "Jap"
Frankly, i thought it was just abbrevation but they soon attacked me; Some guy who claimed he was japanese said he was "deeply insulted" and then
everyone was all saluting him and then i apologised and said it was a geniue mistake and then the admin kept repeating what the last guy said and i
said something along the lines of:
I know! and im geniuely sorry but to stop further arguements i suggest we lock this thread?
And then what do you know, Im banned!
Pathetic bunch really, I mean seriously.
At least its off my chest now,
But what do you guys think?
