Why do mods not carpet ban constantly?

[url=http://www.bungie.net/Forums/posts.aspx?postID=74491040&postRepeater1-p=1]Latest carpet ban[/url] Why mods not do this more often? It's a great way of teaching people not to respond to a obviously against the rules thread! And after getting carpet banned I, for one, learned my lesson. Is it only not done to keep people on this site? Is it because some mods just want havoc on the flud? Note: I do not know what the the thead was about nor who replied. Although I am positive OP didn't bump it 3 pages in a row.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] night flare I got carpet banned and lost my exalted title this week :( I was just spamming every new thread with inb4trippiehippy because the dude was posting -blam!- in every thread and no mods were online to ban him at the time. Didn't realize that the thread could be carpet banned at the time. [/quote] Just remember that reporting will get someone noticed! The Bungie Mods are cunning. They walk here and there, they say; at times unnoticed. Just remember Bungie Mods take many forms and disguises with the power at their fingertips to scorch our rears in a split second. Reporting will do the community good, and as well as yourself!

  • Do you want this place to turn into a 343i forum? The more strict the banning becomes, the less people will be tempted to come here for fear of being banned. I think the moderation is fine how it is.

  • Ooh, these 'changes' or this 'change' sound/s rather interesting. I wonder what the Bungie team have up their sleeve now.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Elite Mouse [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Forge Fan92 I learned my lesson from that thread. Noble Legendary to nothing. :( If the mods are going to carpet ban, they should do it consistently, not when they're having a bad day. There have been so many threads like that that didn't have carpet bans.[/quote]But, you see, that would take forever, and no mod wants to have to do that. However, a carpet ban now and then? Now you are questioning yourself, "is it worth the risk to make a dumb reply in this obvious spam / troll thread?". It is an effective deterrent. Oh, and if you just got a 3 day, your title will be back pretty soon, although if you are that worried about it then you have bigger problems than being a "lowly member".[/quote] I guess that makes sense. Thanks.

Can you imagine how much cheese pizza was probably in that thread? HOLY -blam!-!!! I went straight to mythic and skipped legendary!

And like stated before, you helped keep a thread titled "18 year old titties" (something like that) alive, if anything you're lucky he didn't give you a 2 week.

  • Agree with S bot. There was no reason to continue posting off-topic spam in a thread that's against the rules. I reported it as soon as I saw it and left. What's the point in posting in that thread?
