Dude you really need to chill. He told you to stop sighing without explanation. He didn’t ban you for expressing your opinion.

actually he did once. Remember the 2nd temp ban he gave me?

I’m surprised you went with that instead of the recent “comparing someone to a Nazi will result in a ban” post in response to the “No one was banned for comparing us to Nazis” post. But that’s just me 😛.

I was trying to make the point that we’ve traditionally been very lax when it comes to receiving criticism and typically haven’t responded by banning members even when thoroughly provoked (and the 2006 “forum Nazis” incident was specifically designed to get us to ban the offenders just so they could make their point).

But yes, comparing another forum member to a Nazi is a problem. It’s hyperbole that allows its user to avoid presenting an actual argument. Of course, context is a factor (i.e., “Soup Nazi”).
