Wow this sucks, I took a break from this forum hoping the bullshit would eventually pan out, and it get's worse? Now I really don't know what happened, but just a suggestion, notice the pattern. If people are allowed to do whatever the fuck they want it's gonna get worse. Lay down some banning, and do it unbiased. No favorites, no bullshit.
Again, I don't know what happened, but this is a golden rule for everything. It'll solve a lot of problems. You're the mods, do what you want. Just trying to help.
As a mod, we do try to stay unbiased as possible. Unfortunately, there are some times, where we need to play things by ear and our actions are not just black and white.
