In all honesty, we don't ask the Mods about their actions. Once a member gets banned, we don't discuss them, nor ask about them. It's the rule on
However, you could u2u a mod, I'll toss out "neformore" for a name, because he was a mod that posted in that thread, and then ask for information
about the deleted thread. (For future reference, the 404'd error means a thread was deleted.) They may or may not respond. Never share u2u
information, either, it is also against the rules.
In this particular instance, many members saw the direction the thread was headed, and called it. I was one that stated the thread would be 404'd
and the member banned. It didn't go in the Hoax bin because it wasn't a hoax, and the member did violate the T&Cs as soon as they solicited for
money. That will get a thread deleted, in a heartbeat, and never underestimate the staff. They had been following the thread since it's inception,
and were waiting to act.
I don't honestly know the ruling. I'm not a Mod, but I watch, and read, and know how the rules work.
The above is only my best guess. I read the whole thread, and followed it, but, alas, the tangent it took was well away from the OP. As such, it's
gone. Kudos to the Mods.
