I need a rant. I was on the forums of one of the websites I frequent often, and I asked a question about the server lag. One of the moderators replied, telling me the site was under a Denial of Service attack from certain users. Someone else randomly hijacks my thread, mentioning the fact a feature on the website isn't working (even after the founder of the site told us the reason and explained why he disabled the feature to help against the attacks). I PM'd the one user nicely, saying that there was a thread at the top of the list of forums about thread hijacking, and that he probably shouldn't do it. We exchanged a couple more PMs, and then I stopped replying.
Well apparently the player I exchanged the messages with went to the moderator who replied to my thread and told him about my "mini-modding." I hadn't been mini-modding, I was only making him aware that thread hijacking was against the rules, and I did so in a polite manner. I got a PM saying I got a warning, and that "Behavior like this will not be tolerated." I then changed my status to say I was "Done" and I get banned for "excessive mini-modding and attitude."
How is this right at all? I didn't mini-mod in the first place. I have never broken any site rules in my life, let alone that particular website, and I get 5 minutes warning before I'm banned? I guess I know the next game I'm not playing.
