    Right, didn't think so. But I thought I;d comment on yours.

    Capdon insulted Ethereal.

    Capdon was thread-banned for insulting Ethereal.

    I agreed that Ethereal was insulted.

    Making me guilty of "criticizing a moderation action".



    Got it.

    Got it.

    Now that's much better than your earlier outburst. I was wrong then, you didn't criticize, only discussed a particular mod action.

    It is not easy being a Mod. Sure the money, the fame, the groupies and lifestyle are awesome, but there is a dark side..

    Is it forum policy to allow insults to go unpunished if the person being insulted merely responds to the insult?

    If so, how long has this policy been in place? And where is the rule or announcement establishing such a policy?

    It’s a catch-22, if you don’t respond and report, but no action is taken, then the next time why bother reporting? But then you will be infracted for insults if you respond, all the while the other party continues business as usual.

    I agree, but I want to know what the policy is when the response doesn't contain an insult. I was aware that responding to an insult with another insult would result in both parties being warned or infracted, but I had no idea that merely responding, in and of itself, would result in no action being taken at all. I have never seen any rule or announcement or even precedent that would support the existence of such a policy. Yet I am led to believe that this is indeed the policy.
