You acted suspiciously (much like you do here, as a sig spammer), and got called on it. Yeah, that's not on WHT, that's on you.

so in my case i got banned for simply informing users on WHT that a WHT member insulted and attacked me and my company because i terminated him for not paying his bills.
This user still remains on WHT and i get banned, how is this fair

Either way Hosting Discussion is more organic with a personal member base. Sounds to me like they are the ones loosing out on this community.

What was suspicious about working in the same office with someone else something we could prove of course. Secondly if they did a thorough look they still would see that they are two different people.

That is the reason why I am here and not on WHT. The community and the admins on this site seem a lot cooler than over at WHT. Kudos to you people

This user still remains on WHT and i get banned, how is this fair
It doesn't sound fair at all. Are you able to link the person to being a part of WHT at all? Did you contact WHT directly after this to give your evidence to back your statements you made? If you can prove your case I don't see how they could rightfully ban you for warning others about this user.

Funny enough I got an infraction at WHT this morning...

In a thread discussing technology and how it has changed over the last 5 to 10 years - I simply spoke about my experiences in working with storage. I.e. This is this, that is that, and I have the personal experience to back it up.

Somehow, I guess, it was seen as self-promotion as I was given an alert for 'providing details about my company that were not asked for,' which was bull.

That said I think I probably have like 200+ warnings/infractions since 2007 - and I'd say all but maybe 5 of them are ridiculous and unnecessary.

One thing I especially love is when an old thread gets bumped where I linked to one of my sites that, at the time, was non-commercial. Fast forward a couple of years and the site is making revenue - the thread gets bumped to the top - and I get an infraction for linking to a commercial site I own [i.e. self-promotion].

Does it matter that, when I made the post years ago, the site was non-commercial? Nope. Does it matter that I can't go back and edit it out [because the edit time limit is 15 minutes]? Nope.

All I've ever tried to do is to be as helpful as I can to the community. I want hosting customers to be informed and to learn - and there are times where my personal experiences are pertinent and valid in the discussion.

Oh well.

Bear is actually a nice guy - I talk to him on Skype from time to time but not about WHT or issues at WHT. Business is business, personal is personal.

That said there are like 3 mods there that give, in my experience, the majority of the infractions.

I've even had other moderators quote me, and respond to me, and then I've been infracted later on by another mod for the same content the other mod quoted and responded to...

It is what it is. It's their playground and their rules.

Ouch. Could it be that it was a simple lack of attention by a moderator who would look at one specific post but not the overall discussion or the dates of posts in question?

How many?? I'd say you are probably on the opposite spectrum here, of members who are loved by the administration! How does one accumulate that many warnings/infractions without losing account privileges on such a strictly run community?

The original infraction was due to a lack of attention. Them subsequently refusal to remove the infraction even with evidence having been provided was what bothered me the most. That said - it's just a forum and if they don't want me posting - I'll post somewhere else.

I get along with all of the moderation team just fine - most of them are great people... Just some of them interpret the rules more strictly than others - even myself.

I don't see a way to see the list anymore - I used to be able to - but it was literally all crap. I've never been suspended [temporarily or not] or banned.

It may be more like 80 and I've exaggerated... Either way - the point is that I've gotten a lot of warnings and infractions for absolutely piddly stuff that didn't even make sense.

Because I never really did anything wrong.

Then again I was posting something like 25 posts/day for like 2 years. It's a lot easier to get warnings in system like WHT when you're that active. You don't even really have to do anything wrong - enough posts and something is going to be interpreted by somebody as a violation.

I think I have maybe 5 legitimate warnings/infractions over there over the last 9 years. Ones that I got and I was like, 'Yeah, I should have known better...'

The rest are, 'Are you kidding me? Seriously?'
