Many if not most of us have had an account lock here at least once. What did you do to get it?

Me, I saw a guy selling "30 round clips" in the EE, and posted this pic:

Engaged Keyboard out of anger and disconnected filter.

That wasn't a good idea.

I got IM'd a stern warning from a mod once, does that count?
Link Posted: 9/10/2010 5:41:45 AM EDT
Haven't been locked yet, but I was warned once when I posted something nice about a seller in the EE. The mod thought I was bumping the ad excessively, the seller was really just a nice guy and was helpful with my questions.

Never. I've had a few threads locked but only once for my own asshattery, the rest have been the antics of others.

ETA: IBTP

I have enough real world problems and don't feel the need to fuck up my one and only extracurricular vice & play area. I've never been locked. I'm not sure if I've ever had an "official" warning.

Haven't been locked or warned....seems pretty simple to follow the rules.
Link Posted: 9/10/2010 5:43:41 AM EDT
Never been locked...

But then again, I'm a vet of the most brutal years in the history of the site, '02-05. What gets you a permaban today, wouldn't even raise an eyebrow back then...

It was ruined by 'internet tough guys' that would get butt hurt and run to the mods for a hug.

I just came off of my first 3-day vacation for this, but I'm not sorry, I hate it when grown men act like babies...

And if it was so offensive, why did it not get edited out?





Link Posted: 9/10/2010 5:46:06 AM EDT
never have been.

I've come close on a couple of occasions to saying "fuck it" and going out in a Blaze of Glory or simply posting a "I'm done" type message in Team and asking for my account to be locked, but always either cool off or walk away from this place when I get that caught up in it.

I got the permaban for a story I told about hitting a bycicle rider with my truck (The rider hit me) but the way I told the story all tough and whatnot sounded like I tried to kill the guy. After much E-mail and telling of the story in a less tough guy way I was un banned.

ETA: I think 82nd said it was the fastest BAN ever on ARFCOM at only 80 seconds from my post to my BAN!
Link Posted: 9/10/2010 5:53:03 AM EDT
All I can say is, never post the expression "aim for the roof of your mouth" in an ARFCOM thread.

I wasn't unlocked until a month ago

Posting this in the religious forum.

It's the only time I've had a thread locked based on my post.

I miss understood the religious forum, I thought it was for religious debate, not just believers.

Aimless gave me a warning a couple days ago for a thread asking if there were any great athiest leaders. And the owner of this site locked my acct for calling someone a jackass.
Link Posted: 9/10/2010 5:58:54 AM EDT
I don't post enough to get banned for anything.
Link Posted: 9/10/2010 6:04:06 AM EDT
No locks or bans. 2 warnings is it.

1- RoP related.

2- Insulted that now banned welfare guy. Forget his name at the moment.

I've received somewhere in the neighborhood of 4 Awesome Post Awards, but I've never been locked.

Never got anything from the Mods, but one member did IM me once really angry about a post I made insinuating that he frequently shits his pants.

and I will add, I don't post drunk. Engage your brain first and you will have fewer problems.

Can't recall being locked

ETA: I think I got warned on the original "T_NK" thread.
Link Posted: 9/10/2010 6:12:28 AM EDT
I've had a timeout or two....or three.


One was a month vacation.



I have to control my sense of humor. It can get a little wild sometimes. Let's leave it at that.


I can also be rather outspoken about my opinion concerning certain topics of a religious nature. Gotta watch that, too!


I used to be a moderator but I lost that when I decided to give as good as I got when someone insulted me. I don't take
shit from anybody. But a mod is supposed to be the calm, moderate voice of reason. In that conflict, my mod status
was SURE to fail.

I let someone bait me into calling him a "stupid (less then complimentary ARFCOM leo monkier that rhyms with ABC )" after he called me a stupid libertarian

I pissed in a mods cheerios with a comment he took WAY WAY wrong

and I am perma banned from the BOTS thread after posting some comment that would fly in GD , but was not appropriate for the BOTS forum, I had grabbed it off the active topics list, I edited the comment less then 2 minutes later , and 14 minutes after that got an account warning from a mod. In the course of discussion why I thought it was bullshit , since I edited as soon as I saw I was in BOTS. i called it the BOTS forum "secret squirell club"...... Appearently thats all you need to get perma banned from there (which is for the better anyway, As I usually post from one of the backdoor sites and the forum that a thread is in does not appear anywhere on the active topics list, and I am sure i would have stepped on my dick again by now .)

They tell me I have 1 or 2 other account warnings, but I havbe no idea what for and dont remember them.....


I am real close to following MC4H out the door but am trying REALLY hard to be good.

There was a season there when I think the mods and staff drew straws to see who had to deal with me.....


I'll say this, for whatevere shortcomings they might have, or you think they might have, mods and staff here are patient, far moreso than I,

I had a thread and acct lock once when, while drinking and watching a ballgame, a friend posted something stupid when I went to take a piss. Lasted a day or so.

I don't think anyone missed me much.

I got a warning when somebody asked for a good target and I posted a pic of a cardboard cut out of somebody.

A guy posted two Colt 9mm magazines for sale in the EE.

$45 each. First "I'll take it" gets them.

I posted I would take them.

The ad had been up for several hours when I posted.

Then got an IM saying it was a "typo" and he meant to type $75 each but he would let me have them both for $140 shipped.

I posted his IM in the EE thread and asked if he was welching,

And that's when the fight started.

We both got locked for 24 hours and I got both mags for $90 and left feedback in the EE.

I have only been locked once (Not including dupes.). I posted a thread asking if it was ethical to repay a debt to a friend with a .40 cal Glock considering their propensity to blowup.

I thought it was cute, but the mods disagreed. (Must have been a Glock lover.)
