So i was pretty active yesterday over on the Hide and long story short, caught flak from a few people for "post padding". Next thing i know i try to log in and see that i've been banned for a week for "making useless posts" as quoted by Admin. I'm instructed to read the board rules etc.
 
I've got to say, i'm somewhere between irritated and pissed off. Apparently you cannot make more than 15 posts in a single day, regardless of content:
 
5. Padding of your post count will result in a temporary banning of no less than 1 week. If you post more than 15 posts in a single day you will be considered padding your post regardless of the content and your account will be termporarily suspended.
 
And there is no way for me to contact any of the Mods to explain that i am in no way trying to pad my post totals so i can post in the For Sale forums. I have nothing to sell and was simply being an active member of a great board (or so i thought) in various threads. It wasn't like i was in their version of the coffee house posting one sentence replies all day. I guess i'm used to being part of a forum where you don't have to worry about tight assed pricks playing taddle tell for being an active member. You guys know that i'm a quality member around here and that's all i'm trying to be over there as well.
 
It's just asinine to me that i have to watch my post count every day, "regardless of content". It's not like i was posting naked pictures or hateful comments.
 
Just venting. Maybe i'll just focus on "padding my post count" here at the OT from now on. Big Grin Wink Somebody needs to keep on bothering Bud.

Yeah, those guys over their are different, if you are trying to learn, or are not extremely knowledgeable, they will openly let you know that they would rather you not post at all. But most of them aren't buttholes, they just had a long spell of really bad posters, ( fake snipers and such). Have a friend that frequents that site a bit.

Oh, i keep my butt out of the areas where i have little to no knowledge of. But i definitely feel that i have some advice to offer folks looking for it and do so in a professional manner when the time comes around. Sure, i'll post in the causual threads as well, and did so yesterday but it was in no way to pad a post count in an effort to use the sales forums. I'm just a regular guy looking to get some good information and offer a little bit of my own from time to time when i feel i have the experience to do so.
There are tight wads no matter where you go, i guess i didn't expect to get banned without notice or recourse to explain my side of the story. Getting called a "post-a-holic", among other things seems pretty damn childish to me.

Shooter, I've haunted these forums here long enough to know you know how to act, and are quite knowledgeable about a lot of things. Your recent experience is why I refuse to join their forum, a lot of them are very ignorant on how to treat people and teach the sport in a positive setting.

Don't take it too hard, they may have software rules in place that "automatically" suspend an account for seven days after fifteen posts regardless of content, etc. Depending on user rights the post limit could be more or less. Some companies may do this to address spamming and DOS attacks without the manual assistance of a moderator or admin. Here everything seems to be done manually.

Snipers Hide is an excellent resource for learning or researching, not so great for expressing ones opinion if they are not "vetted" by some of the regulars.

Weird. I'm assuming creating new topics??? There are plenty on there that have to hit about 15 posts an hour or they'll break the arms of their chairs.

No. I think i may have created 2 topics all day.....They got pissed because i had like 50 something posts in a day and most were apparently "worthless" according to the ban message.
 
I know exactly who bitched me out as well to the mods based on comments made right before the "ban" came down. Said i was a post-a-holic and should keep up the good work of making worthless posts after some one else posted about how i had a bunch of posts in 1 day.
 
It's sh*t like that, that caused me to stop going over to AR15.com. Way to many people with to much time on their hands and a sh*tty attitude to match.
