I guess I was banned for that thread I made about that fool bashing jerry reese. Anyway, how long do bans usually last? Or is it a depends on the circumstance type of deal? Technically the guy was already banned when I made the post [:P] I would PM a mod if I knew which one was online but I didn't see anyone.

p.s. is it "frowned upon" to post on an alternate account? lol

I did not make this account to get around the ban, I've had this account for a few weeks when my primary account wasn't working so I could PM one of the mods.

I got banned I believe 2
days ago for <span style="font-weight: bold; text-decoration: underline;">this thread I made</span> (http://boards.giants.com/forums/1/769025/ShowThread.aspx) in response to <span style="font-weight: bold; text-decoration: underline;">his thread</span> (http://boards.giants.com/forums/thread/768683.aspx),
mind you I'm pretty familiar with the rules here, I know what is and
what isn't tollerated but I didn't think what I did was breaking the
rules. I'm pretty adamant when it comes to these type of things.
Now, I'm not arguing being banned at all, I know this board does not
condone these type of posts and neither do I, I'm just curious as to
how long my suspension is for. From what I see in the rules its about
10 days? The guy was banned prior to me making the thread or I would
never have made it. His thread was locked and I couldn't control
myself, heh my mkistake.

you may think it is, will result in a 10 day suspension from the forum.
Doing so more than once will result in a lifetime ban.

Is there any way to tell which moderators are online? I PMed shockey+manning.</font>

I really don't think you are helping your cause by A) Using a ghost account to circumvent the banning and B) posting links to locked threads</P>


Sit bnack chill and let the time pass.</P>

Thanks for that inciteful bit of information. I'm looking for a simple answer. On that note, if you don't know please don't post.

I didn't make this account to get around the ban. i made this account about 2 weeks ago becuase my password wasn't working but I got it straightened out.

I can tell you I did Exactly what you are doing now a few years ago on another forum that I really didn't care about, I got a Ban to my IP address I suppose because I was never able to use the boards again regardless of what email I tried to register a new account under.

I can tell you're not the sharpest tool in the shed by all your posts so let me explain. I'm trying to find out <u>how long</u> my suspention is, not why.. I know why. I figuered I'd ask some of the regulars who've been here awhile since they would probably know.

It's much LONGER now that you made it clear you have alternate accounts.

Looking for a simple answer and not one person has even hinted how long on average it usually is. Instead I get bashed by the majority of the people tha posted in this thread. Thats fine I'm not a kid I'm a grown man doesn't bother me.

As I previously stated DavenIII I didn't make this account to avoid the suspension. I've had this account 2 or 3 weeks ago when my primary account wasn't working but I got that cleared up.

LOL Im not the sharpest tool? Now you really screwed yourself. Now let me make you look dumb, it tells you how long your banned for, or do you not know what numbers the months are? It's sad if thats true because if you knew you were banned it's tell you right there for how long smart guy</P>

Anyway I'm done posting in this thread.. I didn't come here to argue with anyone over something so miniscule as this. I'll let the mods take action or get back to me. Thanks to those who actually made an intelligent post.

Looks like my post put you in check.....But really do you not know the numbers of the months? I guess you dont or you would have not made this post.</P>


I dont think anyone made an intelligent post because were not talking to an intelligent person, who is trying to shade his ban</P>

Look I can not answer your Q because I have never been banned from here. Send a PM to one of the Mods or Email the Site admin. But honestly the ghost account is a No No as is posting links to the offending post in question</P>


I really can not see it being much more than a week, there was no cussing in it, but I could be wrong.</P>


Relax the time will pass, hey at least it is the offseason, not the SB week or even draft day</P>

I got banned last week and my ban was for 7 days. I'd figure 7 days for you as well.</P>


They reactivated my account yesterday I think so this is my 1st post back... </P>


Don't bother emailing the mods. They are rarely helpful. I tried getting an explanation on why I was banned for an image from a PG-13 movie but it was OK posting pics of people with heads and limbs ripped off in the photoshop threads.</P>


Mods emailed me back but with BS answers. </P>

LOL!!! Well, once I found out I was banned from the Giants Message Boards I couldn't control my anger [;)]</P>


I climbed the nearest clock tower and started firing off shots.</P>


I'd post pics but since it's not in a Photoshop thread, a pic of me with a gun could earn me another suspension... OH NO!</P>


I did manage to actually get some work done though!</P>


How you been? Feeling OK?</P>

There were 2 in 1 of bigjeep's stupid @ss threads about Shockey.</P>


I'll post quick and then pull 'em off... it would take too long to explain. </P>


From Men in Black.. questionable but still a PG-13 movie.</P>


Theother was from a REAL commercial for a kids doll.</P>


I'll replace those with this for your viewing pleasure!</P>

My point to the mods was that they were meant to be funny and taken out of context for a ban.</P>


If they were put in 1 of the Photoshop threads no one would have said anything.</P>


The ball sack video was questionable... but the doll is ridiculous!</P>

It does seem like a questionable call. Good to have you back. There was a noticeablelack of common sense the past week or so.</P>


I can't believe that doll actually exists. What parent in their right mind would buy that for their kid.</P>

Context, context, context...</P>


The best thing for you to do is to simply let it go or we can re-open our debate via email on what is and what is not acceptable to post on these forums, because I'm quite sure that very few people, if any, are interested in hearing anyone gripe about their account being banned and for what reason. There reallyaren't any subliminal messages in the Code of Conduct that require a degree in rocket science to figure out. If you don't like how we do things, leave, but this is a football message board and the rules are not 'optional'. If pictures become a problem, they'll be removed all together. Context has <U>nothing</U> to do with it. </P>


Sorry you feel that you were given a BS answer in our email exchange. We aren't at allrequired to give an explanation as to why an account gets banned. I was trying to explain it to you, but obviously it was a waste of time. </P>
