Goodbye, AppleCore <3
My other account has been banned for trolling. Here is the story: Over the past year there have been many trolls on here and the Mods have yet to ban them or anything. Their posts and comments are still up while others' comments who have not trolled are gone. Some users are @Reggie98 and @DrBrad among others. I got tired of it and here is what I did. I intentionally created two accounts :"AppleEatsGoogle&MicrosoftForLunch" and "WhatWouldSteveJobsDo"
Granted, I deserve being ban for this and I accept it and here is the letter from the Verge Mods:
Today you created two alternate accounts under the names of "WhatWouldSteveJobsSay" and "AppleEatsGoogle&MicrosoftForLunch", for the sole purpose of causing trouble. As a user who has been here since April of last year, you should know better than this by now. As per the community guidelines: Trolling: "Trolling" is a big, messy term, but we know what trolls are and we won't tolerate it. If you're abusing the good conversations here at The Verge, we will take your comments and posts down. This includes taking a thread off-topic, by the way. Multiple accounts and throwaway emails: We don't allow multiple accounts per user. Using a disposable email address signals to us that you might not be here for the right reasons. You also may not create accounts designed to impersonate another person. If you would like to discuss this with us and try to explain your actions, you can email us at email@example.com no sooner than March 16, 2014. Any attempts to evade this ban will result in a permanent suspension from the community. Regards Christopher Bright Community Moderator, The Verge firstname.lastname@example.org
If trolling is such "a big messy term..and [you] won't tolerate it" why have you not removed other trollish comments and posts from other users who take away from friendly discussions? How obvious does trolling need to be for you to notice it??? I do not know. I have emailed the mods, and I have yet to receive a response. Chances are I will permanently be banned after this, but oh well. I don't care anymore.
Anyways, goodbye guys! I will miss you. :( The mods here do a horrible job, and we have already given them feedback but it's as if they refuse to listen.
