Well, the tale of Stratics keeps writing itself, and just when u think the plot couldn’t get any thicker, well, it gets thicker! Just days after opening his own chat board as an alternative to Stratics, Mick Lite has been banned from Stratics for having a link to his own board in his bio. You can read the story in Mick’s own words below, but some interesting questions come up. Was Mick looking to get banned? Does that mean he *should* have been banned? Have the Stratics mods completely lost all sense of proportion?
From Mick’s site:
“Thats right, I received another “friendly warning” today, when I posted on a thread from Sir, letting him know to be careful. He posted 2 minutes after his own post. When I posted a minute after my post, it was deleted and I was warned for bumping and spamming the boards when all I did was add another sentence to what I was already talking about. Right after the friendly warning, I received an official warning. The official warning stated that I was previously warned for having a link to this site in my signature. I deleted it from my signature after I was warned. But my official warning came from me having a link to this site listed as my homepage in my bio…. wtf?? And that if I posted again, I would be banned. During this escapade, I was talking to Honeybuns on AIM lol. I asked her to please ban me because I was a stratics plus member, and decided I did not want to waste anymore good money to keep that site in operation. She said she could not ban me because I asked her, but if I posted again without removing the link to this site from my bio, then she would. So I posted in the City Hall saying Hi Honeybuns, how are you this evening…. and was banned lol.”
