That makes... absolutely no sense whatsoever. But then again, conspiracy theorists rarely ever do.

So I was banned.
I know what it's like to be targeted by biased mods/admins, I was the recipient of an apparent collusion between two mods on a site because one didn't like an opinion I left in a topic on a product and went on a tirade about how my logic was "faulty", filling it with snide little insults. I respectfully and politely told him off (for lack of a better phrase) and he later went on to directly insult me in several other topics.

Then I got a message from another mod who issued me a warning for "personal attacks". When I responded to him with an attempt to defend myself and discuss these so-called personal attacks that he claimed I made, linking to my initial post and to the other mod's posts where he flamed me, the warning mod promptly cited a vague and unethical rule to "not piss off the staff", issued a second warning, and banned me.

Unfortunately I don't recall exactly how it was all worded while the offending mods deleted all traces of the incident, and I seem to be unable to find the topic on another forum where I posted a transcript of the whole thing to discuss with friends, but the basic outline was a mod didn't like my opinion and I suffered for it.

I'm so glad I can have a dissenting opinion on here and not be punished for it. Now, Checkman, scrap those archaic revolvers of yours and get some quality semi-autos with enough rails to mount the entire US SOPMOD kit on.
