The admins are pretty forgiving, if a banned member were to contact the Admins and discuss the issues and make a commitment to follow the rules, we would likely give yet another chance. That has happened. Some chose to burn their bridges by sending a bunch of name calling e-mails, which only serves to assure us that we made a correct decision.
It does not help his cause to have someone posting a one sided view on his behalf, it does not tell the whole story, and its not the place to discuss specifics about a member in any event.
A very good way to get a quick warning or a ban is by insulting members or CR administrators in a public post. I try to remove insulting posts that directly call someone a name, but obviously we do not read every post and rely on members to report serious issues.
the question is, was it the case?
or was it a just a sensible MOD who don´t like to be corrected and thinks he is always right?
i don´t know!
i don´t know why he was banned but from what was presented to me.. it looks that way.
You quoted an admin above - did you read what you quoted, particularly the highlighted text?
As for what was presented to you, you seem to be listening to only one side of the story. Sure, you can look over his posts and see no issues - that's most likely because his insulting posts were deleted after they brought to the moderators' attention.
Maybe you missed the other comments in this thread that seem to present a small part of the other side of the story (e.g., "Now that you mention it canon-f1 had insulted me too.
"). Regardless, the key point is:its not the place to discuss specifics about a member
You've asked the question, you've been answered by the site owner and another admin. I would suggest that now might be a good time to let the issue drop. Unless, of course, you have another reason for pushing this issue. For example, if you know Canon-F1 in the same way that Mikael Residal knows ankorwatt - i.e., you see him every time you look into a mirror. I suppose the mods could deduce that from the IP addresses used, most forum software has the capability to show members that are likely to be the same person.
