You can talk it over. Spamming just gets temp ban. Fraud is perma ban and ip is recorded.

 

The policies are pretty fair. 

 

Those who got banned are known for being a bit ragey. I like a lot of the people that were banned but I could definately see how they were. 

 

What's spamming?

Not too sure what it is in the context of a Head Fi forum.  confused_face_2.gif

Ahhhh...

There was a person who used to post "Double Blind Tested?" all the time.

So didn't actually add anything constructive to the threads.

More like trolling you mean.

 

Btw, how can I tell if a member is a moderator ? There is no badge whatsoever in their profiles ?

Well, that clears it up.  That's the problem with delayed forum conversations.  beerchug.gif

A lot of the Banned members appeared to me to be hard line Audio Objectivists.

I will say no more, I do not think it is appropriate for me to be discussing the bad habits of Banned members in a public forum.

Most mods are listed as mods or administrators in their profile badge.  If you don't get a PM from a mod, that means you're ok.  No worries!

It should say "Moderator".

Secret Agent 006 and I are "Headphoneus Supremus".

Their badge would read "Moderator"

I am just asking because sometimes I need to contact a moderator or Admin for some reason whatever it is but I can't tell if it's the right guy.

Ok then it's safe to say that no moderator / administrator commented on this thread.

Just a tip:

You can use the red flag at the bottom left of this post (and every post) to report an offensive post.

 

So if I said something offensive in this post you could report me.

Jude

Currawong

 

I recommend Currawong. Jude generally has other stuff to worry about and Currawong is a people's person.

Hi.

 

I think the OP had the right idea that discussions of this topic don't serve much of a point.  It's a standing policy here that we (Mods/Admins) do not discuss bans in the forums.  If a member gets banned it's for a very good reason and not done offhand.

How does one become a moderator?

When you reach your 23,150th post, you are automatically made a moderator.
