Consider this AN OFFICIAL WARNING against you. I have also added -1 reputation points to your account so you can be reminded of what you did.

And since you seem to have a problem with stopping the crap posts, I'm going to temporarily ban you for a week. If you come back from the banning and STILL ACT THE SAME I will make the ban permanent.

Learn your lesson or you will be gone FAST


TO EVERYONE ELSE THAT SPAMMED (you know who you are):

Continue anywhere else on PBF and you will suffer a worse fate than themainevent. QUIT ACTING STUPID!

Why do you guys go crazy every time someone was banned. He was banned obvisouly because he was doing something wrong(i.e spamming, flaming ect.). I mean its not the end of the world if ONE cool person from the forum was banned. If he was so cool he'll probably come back with a new name like NOTthemainevent

It's gay that themainevent was banned because he was spamming the crap out of PBF? 95 percent of his posts were either :, :tdown:, or just responding with nothing in his reply.

1A) Quoting another member and saying nothing or quoting a member and entering an emoticon is spam. This will not be allowed. You will be given one polite Private Message asking you not to do so again and the second will be a warning (THREE warnings and you are banned, period).
2) Spam will not be taken lightly, so don't even bother to try it. Posting nonsense in each thread will not happen. Spammers will be dealt with 3 warnings and a ban. We used to let it go on but when you get your first warning you will know we are serious. Do NOT test our patience, we will not hesitate to ban you.
3) Posting spam sites to other paintball forums (even if it is YOURS) other team sites or wargame style sites will be dealt with very strictly. Posting a wargame style site will get you instantly banned…PERIOD all other sites will get one warning then you're gone.
4) If there is a thread about something do not start another thread about it. Leave it in one thread so it will get more exposure. Multiple conversations can go on in one thread. And if we close your thread about something DO NOT start a new one. We closed it for a reason. If you would like something done about your closed thread enter it into the PBF COMMENTS AND SUGGESTIONS found by clicking below the Lounge in the main menu.
5) Posts to an individual in the lounge are spam. Comments directed to other members should use private messaging system.
6) Any threads/posts deemed by the staff to be excessively stupid will be deleted WITHOUT WARNING. Depending on which mod sees it you may be lucky and only get it closed, while others may delete it outright. If you find your thread gone then take it as a lesson and be more mature in what you post or risk getting warned/banned for acting like a five-year old.
7)Use common sense before wasting space and discussion. Nobody gives a damn if pirates are better than ninjas, or vice versa. Nobody cares if you got a new banner in your sig. Use your head.
Duo OBVIOSLY states what spamming is and how it will be taken care of.

Taking the initiative to not read the rules and then breaking them is not very wise if I might say so.

themainevent knows very well what he did to get himself banned. If that wasn't the case, that's basically him telling us his fingers typed spam all on their own against his will

He's lucky that I didn't ban him right off the ban for it, I only gave him a 1 week ban. He might as well fix his problem while he's gone or he will end up getting slammed for spam in the future.

LOL Zidane

You guys may think me slamming people like this is bad, but the fact is that I don't take crap from spammers and advertisers. If they don't learn to follow the rules by themselves, then it's the job of the mods to do what we can to contain their problem.

I could've banned him permanently for it but I chose not to because I think that's too harsh. Even though I'd be complying with the rules we wrote up in the case that I did give him a full perma-ban.

Moderating is a hard job. Every tiem someone gets banned or something, its always personal. The mods have to be unbiased and keep a foot in the neutral zone. WTF is this crap, wjy did you even post this thread in the first place?
