Here's a general message to those who want to know the answer to the question in the title. I get these all the time, and most of the time the answer is: I don't know. We get around 25,000 new posts each days in a number of languages, so don't expect me to know what's going on or to instantly go over a staffers head in favour of someone I don't know. Actually you might even have a valid point. Moderators are people too, who just might not be in the mood for your idea of 'fun', 'voicing opinions' and 'interesting contribution'. Than again, the few times I look into these issues, 99/100 had it coming or it involves issues that have nothing to do with what we should be doing here in the first place. Anyone who comes here to share thoughts, news, info, images and enthusiasm for the built environment should have no trouble doing so. If you have an issue with a staffer, I'm sure that if at least one of you is reasonable enough things can be sorted out between the two of you. Thanks for working along. :)

Something happens on Mxscrapers forum that lots of people don´t like Ricardo Legorreta´s (Praemium Imperiale Architecture Laureate 2011) work. The problem is that on the forum are published a lot of unrespectful opinions against his person, his work and also his family. There have been published "jokes" asking to burn all his buildings and workes signed by him, comments that have been supported by moderators.
In my point of view, those "jokes" are hate incitement, and are forbidden by the SSC forum rules.
As I publicly commented it and showed the moderator was promoting the violation of the general forum rules, my original profile was definitely banned of the site, arguing I had a conflictive attitude.
As I´m a media researcher, I have tried to share my point of view about the social and educational function of internet forums, advocating for the respect of SSC forum rules and for a more tolerant attitude by moderator´s, but the site´s (represented by moderators) response to me for defending its own rules and showing that moderators are not doing well, was punishing me with a definitely banned.
Of course hook moderator have erased all the discussion showing his bad practice, and all the comments from another participants asking him to respect Legorreta as an architect but also as a human.
Moderators on Mxscrapers use to be moralistic, rude and despotic with some users that show not to share their opinion, what is against any democratic values and the internet forums social function.

Thats the problem. When you share the computer, the ssc anti spam filter automatically assume that you and your brother are the same person. What you should do is send a pm to one of the admins, eg. Taller, Better to explain your situation and he might be able to help you out.

I just remember that he is on holiday and won't be back until the last week of this month. So, it might take a little while for him to look at your case! ;)

What are the rules at SSC regarding tags, in particular, users who post profanities and derogatory tags in threads ? I referred one of my clients to the photographic threads and they were shocked at the tags that some users have been posting - in particular in Ozscrapers.

EDIT - mods don't need to reply with an answer, I have contacted JAN.

Ozscraper has always had a sick tag epidemic (among others more serious issues), and unfortunately the slackers local "enforcers" enjoy them as much as the tools who're adding them :shifty:

we normally don't unban any user who was banned by other mods unless there is an absolutely good reason to let him off the hook and even that only the admins and the mod who banned him would do the unbanning.
