    Messed up and got a point...it's now "expired"... Sure, they say they "expire", but they are still listed in your usercp. I'm sure any and all mods/admin can see these. Are they still "held" against you or are they truly forgiven? Because, if someone has a bunch of expired points and mods can see them (and make decisions based upon that), they are NOT forgiven...

    Expired 'yes'; forgiven/forgotten: 'no'

    It's good that they leave them there. They serve as a reminder to ourselves to not loose our cool when another forum member calls you ___________________ . :whistling:

    Then why expire in the first place if they're still "considered" by the powers that be? They still "count"...

    There is a point system that the Admins take into account when deciding if a forum member needs a "time out" and how long this "break" should last.

    Earning multiple infractions for the same behavior is just as bad as getting a second infraction while your points are still active.

    Don't sweat it too much. Many forum members have gotten an infraction or two over the years. Having a clean slate just means that you haven't been in GT long enough.

    I just got dinged for using a 4 letter word starting with F

    Which leads me to wonder if there is a post containing toe forum rules or TOS somewhere because I sure cant find one.

    Seems like I average about one a month for the last few months. I'm not doing anything different than the first 7 years I've been here, so I can't say why that's started, but oh well.

    Yes, uneven and inconsistent moderation sucks. Goes right in line with favoritism amongst members, too.

    This is all very simple people.

    You have to agree to the rules to sign up for a free service.
    If you can't follow those simple rules and get dinged for it. You probably deserve it.

    MK just doesn't hand out infractions arbitrarily, or for just the sheer fun of ruining someone's day. This entire thread will not endear anyone posting in it to the higher ups.
    If you feel you have wrongly been given an infraction. Take it up with the Mod giving it or an Admin. Hashing it out in public can never end well.

    Up a tree.
    Most of you guys never seemed all that bad to me, and I'm surprised that Devildog has ever gotten a point at all. Whatever it was, I guess I never saw it.

    Franky, I can't believe I've never got a point myself after some of the total disregard I've occasionally shown for other peoples feelings on GT. Guess I should turn it up a notch.
