    One rule for one....

    I said I wasn't going to make a song and dance about this but after been given 3 seperate infractions for no good reason I go and read this thread whilst a kid is in the room.

    Credit Crunch

    The very same moderator who happily gave me 3 infractions posted this highly innapropriate material on the screen.

    I'm starting to think this forum has one rule for one lot and a completely different set for another and am highly p***ed off!

    I thought you were given an infraction because of your saying you'd deck another member whereas that post is in the jokes section?

    I just can't believe that I got 3 infractions (and I didn't use foul language in my posts) and certain members can post whatever they feel like with no consequences.

    I'm sure I'm not the only person who has been in a similar situation as well.

    That's OK is it?

    I think I have had enough of this - don't you ever read back what you post?
    IMO you are often over the top, arrogant and opinionated

    That of course it just my opinion - which of course you disagree with - and you NEVER change your opinion, do you?

    And what are you complaining about in the Credit Crunch thread? If you have a problem REPORT THE POST - the system works, if you use it

    One infraction was for using the word 'muppet'. Another was for the decking comment which I quickly removed (after like 2 mins) as I quickly realised how inapproriate it was, and the 3rd was for no good reason whatsoever.

    I don't care where the post is made, it was inappropriate and at the very least should have held a warning to say it was inappropriate. I've seen plenty of members use foul language and be punished for it so why should this one be allowed to stand.

    I'm not posting to object my infractions - I'm posting to say the law of the land is not consistant.

    @ Witch - I'm actually saying that my infractions were deserved. I understand that I was very abrupt, and my behaviour was uncalled for. There was no excuse for it and I wish I could turn back the clock and change what I posted.

    I believe you're missing the point of the thread - the reason I'm disappointed is some people can get away with plastering "Oh F*CK" on the screen in big letters.
