    The Official "I was banned from TV" Thread

    Since we have so many TV members joining lately, I think it's fair game to have a thread dedicated to all banned TV members.

    In my case, I was suspended until December 2008, today, which is fine anyhow, because I was getting very bored over at TV. I didn't even have time to write my "Goodbye and Thank you for Playing" note to the mods (particularly cdnvic, that very insecure forgot to be funny mod)

    Let's make this tread a tribute to the banned members and a place to bash the sillyness of TV mods. They deserve it for abusing their "little" power.

    Why were you banned ? spill the beans and share with everyone here the reasoning of your banning for a good laugh.

    It's not a tragedy, it's comedy.

    Ice, Moog, Scamp, RDN ? who else ?

    I think at least 80% of the posters here have been banned from TV at some point.

    Well, it's a long time ago, but I got banned for proposing Bluecat as the most unfairly treated member 2005. I've made up with George since (I think), who is a nice guy, like almost everybody I met in person from these boards.

    Count me in.
    I got banned on the trumped up charge of poaching members, something which I had not done.

    The real reason for my banning was that I was posting here and enjoying myself.
    CdnVic supported my banning of course with his usual comment "I will have no objection to his ouster"

    In all fairness PP did send me a very polite email and he did support me when CdnVic tried to ban me a few months back.

    Cdnvic gets a hard on from looking at himself in the mirror.

    I got banned for posting on TeakDoor - I hadn't posted on TV for around 3 months before the banning.

    I got banned for sending The Dude a PM asking him to join TeakDoor.

    The funny thing is they wouldn't of known but I posted it on TeakDoor so they found out that way. If they did actually read all my PM's I'd find that very sad, maybe they did? I dont know.

    I didn't get a PM explaining the reasons but I can just assume it is that.

    I'm a ThaiVisa reject. What else is new?

    Welcome to the jungle!

    Yes!

    I was probably still at college or even school when you started posting on ThaiVisa.

    Most of us have to assume what the reason for the latest suspension was, a few (?) bad apples amongst the TV mods spoil the reputation for the rest. The good guys don't seem to have much of a say over there.

    Yeah.

    Seems many mods are frightened to speak up when the baddies are around. I find most the ThaiVisa mods two faced in all honesty. I found out the hard way but it wasn't just any of the mods, the mods that PM'ed me regular as a "friend" I guess I was nieve.

    I dont trust any mod on ThaiVisa are far as I can throw them... And that isn't very far!

    There ARE good guys, it's just that they're not very clued in on what's happening.

    "I confirm the moderating team has agreed to give a full explanation for any such action"
    With due respect, this was a well-meant statement, but anyone who's ever been suspended over there is gonna laugh their heads off at such naivity!

    Well, they have enough members, so they can piss off a few every day...

    Good guys? Some maybe.

    I dont tend to like being slagged off by some moderating "friends" in another part of the forum. That is all I am saying.

    Back in the early days of AE, Lovely Cutie (LC) got banned from TV for the same reason. It appears that they can either read your PM's or they use some sort of filter on it.

    If it's a filter though I don't really see how it works, you could be sending someone a PM saying "I saw this crap site the other day called www.crapforum.com" and all of a suden find yourself banned.

    I dont think you get banned for posting on other forums. They do take a dim view of members "inviting" others to use different forums. I can't really see the problem. TV is big enough with enough posters anyway, it's a bit like having a bar and not leting anyone who drinks there talk about other bars for fear that they may go and drink there

    I've been suspended a few times, cndvic suspended me once only to be over turned by george or the doc the next day.

    I dont even think there is anything in the extensive forum rules there about telling people about other sites so it seems a bit harsh to go banning longstanding posters like IM and Thetyim for PM'ing others about other forums, you'd of thought a simple PM off one of the admins would of suffficed.

    I think it's safe to say that Admins do read PM on TV. There are too many "incidents" proving this is the case. The place is run by paranoid admins (could it because they have other things to hide from running other shaddy "businesses" ?).

    No wonder then that they choose only paranoid and insecure mods to run their business. They feed on their ego problem, and that's better than being paid in Shang or in Baht. They are a few exceptions of course, decent mods etc... but usually they have little power and don't have a say in mod debates, so they go with the flow.

    BlueCat is harmless, wasn't he banned for posting in the news section ? something he could do here since the news section on TD is poor.

    I don't understand why he is so dedicated and stuck over at AE. He doesn't sound very useful there. Maybe he has no choice because he is paying for it all over at AE.

    "I did not PM any members about TeakDoor"
    but I got banned for poaching.
