So my 48 hour suspension is over and I have some questions about it.

I got my first ever warning because I used the word, "ass," to describe another poster. The warning I received quoted the offending post. I was told someone reported me, I acknowledged the warning and carried on posting. No problem.

But a few hours later my account was suspended for 48 hours and all I was given was this-

"Hello,Your account at Dallas Cowboys Fan Forum has been temporarily suspended. I warned you earlier for language, but members have since flagged another post. Your account will not be functional for 48 hours (depending on your timezone). This is an automated process and you do not need to do anything to expedite the unsuspension process."

That seems like a fully automated message except for, "I warned you earlier for language, but members have since flagged another post."

Since I don't recall using offensive language in a post after receiving my warning, I'd like to know which post was flagged so I can avoid making future mistakes.

I'd also like to know if the timeline matters. In other words, does it matter if the second post (that so far hasn't been shown to me) happened before or after the warning? Does the offense I was warned about have to be repeated or can a completely different offense be used for the suspension?

Is it the policy of this forum to not answer questions regarding account suspensions?

I'm not even upset about the suspension. I just want to know why my account was suspended for 48 hours. I'd like to avoid that happening in the future.

Did more than one person take issue with me calling a poster an ass? Why only refer to, "another post," in the suspension email after sending me the specific post along with the warning email?

If anything, we can use my experience to educate other posters. I'm not trying to be critical of the decision of the administrator/s of this forum. I am simply seeking understanding of my offense in order to be a better poster.

Just saw this.

 

I have no idea.   Who did it? 


My doctor told me to start killing people.   Well, not  in those exact words.   He said I had to reduce the stress in my life.    Same thing, really.

The warning came from the admin, ccastillo. The suspension doesn't have a name attached but the wording, "I warned you earlier," makes it sound like it could've been her as well.

Sounds like it was her. 

 

PM her and ask.     I have no idea.

PMing the Mods/admin doesn't work. They won't respond.

I finally got one to respond. It wasn't the one who suspended me tho. It was like going thru the back door to find out why.

I do.

I appreciate that, but I never had an issue or reason to PM you about a problem. That goes for 99% of the Mods.

I don't PM the mods anymore due to the responses I have received in the past.  As with the Cowboy organization, credit where it is due.  I may have pegged BenGone wrong.  Seems like a standup guy.

Well, some posters can be such an a ... uh, donkey - stubborn as an a.., uh, mule - and dumb as an a.., uh, burro.

Ehhh I don't believe in pm I get the mods. Did it once trying to report someone and got nowhere. If you got an issue just handle it yourself.

I didn't do it either, I see it may have been cacastillo, you'd have to take it up with her.

I may not always respond to PMs but that's because sometimes the PM is pointless or I'm busy.  However, since I do frequent the forums on my phone at times, the best way to get my attention is through a PM.
