Well I did anyway seems kinda BS, I don't really troll that much, offense is taken and ok I'm antagonistic but at least I made a point when I respond. Anyone else been fucked by mods?
I see many of you are going on about not breaking rules but I think the problem is the rules are bullshit first of I don't troll or spam so that shouldn't be there also what's wrong with antagonism with criticism and offense is only taken the GAG community clearly can't handle the bantzzz.
My account wasn't even suspended for the full 48 hours more like 10 so I mustn't have fucked up that bad all though this question was taken down for a bit.
I haven't seen you around much so I don't know your posts and how they were. However, generally speaking, freezing accounts comes after repeated removed posts.
There is a site "rule" with antagonism. As far as that goes, criticism is alright-- antagonistic statements aren't.
Example: "That is a ridiculous statement, I disagree completely. Here's why..." That's ok to say. It's attacking the statement, not the person.
Other example: "Only a complete and utter retard would take a stance like that. You are an idiot. Here's why I disagree..." That's not ok to say. Sure, you had criticism of their opinion in it, but you just attacked them as well.
Antagonism of a person is not required in disagreeing with a point or rendering it invalid. In fact, all it does is discredit the antagonistic person's opinion by making them look like a jerk.
Why ban it? It's distasteful and just promotes hate like "kys" comments and crap like that. The site already has enough hate on it as it is already. It doesn't need more. Satire is witty humor, often exaggerating things to make a point (often with societal implications). Sarcasm is using exaggeration to target a person. However, the majority of antagonism is not sarcasm or sattire. It's just antagonism.
We don't need to turn into a 4chan or leafyishere comment thread lol.
I am Not One to ever Point fingers here, dear, and a few times even on Facebook when I became a bit too Opinionated perhaps, hey then Would... Freeze me out from commenting for 48 hours. On GAG, @Josht11, that Gag tries to Maintain a certain Thing or Two from getting out of hand, and if they felt they needed to do this, then maybe it was in your Best interest so things didn't get further out of hand. Good luck. xx
Sometimes moderators make mistakes or bad calls. When they do, the admins correct it as soon as they have a chance to review.
I've never had an account freeze, but I have had 3 or 4 posts (over a period of a year) removed for being "too antagonistic". It's a judgement call. But generally, it's when "banter" devolves into personal attacks and/or name calling that posts are removed.
If you CONTINUE posting the same type of comments AFTER a moderator has hidden them, that's the criteria for getting your account frozen - which is akin to a temporary suspension until the admins can look into it. Hope that helps. I was going to PM all of this to you but I can't.
Never experienced this. Well, I try following rules so I don't lose anything. Example: I got over 1,600 published videos and over 1,700 subscribers on YouTube. Making a dumb move and losing my channel would be horrific to me. Especially since I can't get most of the stuff back. I only have files to like 5% of the videos. Years of work gone for some stupid mistake. Best and pretty easy to just follow the rules.
I once said that I'd need to lose my ability to think to vote Republican, and this was flagged as "antagonistic". What the actual fuck, though? Seems like an opinion to me. I didn't say that everyone who votes Republican lacks a brain.
I have too but I does not only happen here. Lazy to say about it anymore...
I've been here for years never refrained from speaking my mind or saying things that may not be popular but my account has never been frozen. If your account is being frozen your being unnecessarily abrasive, destructive, or disruptive. Tone it down.
