Well, as expected, the Moderators did not take kindly to my highlighting of their decision to delete posts and threads which offended their personal sensibilities, rather than break any Community Guideline - and to demonstrate that they were operating as loose cannons, independent of the instructions of their boss, Amanda, they have decided to ban me outright, with no previous warnings (see, Nina, it isn't just you!) for a non-existent, made up offence which doesn't actually exist in the Community Guidelines. Yes, why don't you see if you can find "Disruption" in the Community Standards. You won't.
Presumably, Mike Moderator has decided to gag me (apparently the whole "Disappearing Posts" thread has disappeared, which is a nice self-referential example) before I embarrass the team even more, probably because the newer, sensitive additions to the team (was it me, or did one naive and overly honest soul name herself after the new future Queen of England) were personally upset at having their jobs potentially put on the line by exposure of their incompetence. Or maybe Amanda's job is on the line because she can't control her team. Or maybe Amanda's job is on the line because she keeps being responsible for public relations disasters. You decide. Perhaps you would like to ask her at the CTUG why I got banned without warning by a bunch of bent forum cops who fabricated not just evidence, but a whole new crime!
Pep (Or maybe they did it out of spite because I demonstrated how manipulable they were with their new philosophies, by reporting Scylla's post, not because it infringed any Guidelines, but because someone might get upset by it; go figure!)
PS I am receiving reports of new offences which the Moderators will be acting upon, such as "smoking illegal substances while posting", which is not the sort of thing which LL want to promote. It may be that you have some ideas regarding these unwritten rules. Let me know and I will put together a canonical list.
PPS I suppose they will have a torrent (of perhaps two or maybe even *gasp* three posts on SLO now!)
