I was suspended for a week for criticizing Gabe Ruediger's performance on TUF...but now I'm back. Lock up your daughters!

Good to have you back

Bans arent nessacarily permanent, they can be set on a timer to allow posting privileges to be returned to the user after a set timer is up.

Tbh Im not quite sure why I was banned, apprently a lot of people were complaining about my posts, so in my week off I just chilled out and came back a lot cooler. I bet there hasnt even been a single complaint since I came back

Generally speaking.....

I don't understand why anyone should/would be banned for criticizing a fighter's performance as long as it was done with civility.

As with other members' complaints, unless you are saying something racist, derogatory or slanderous (I guess it would technically be libel), so what if they don't like it.

How about we dont say slander racist or derogatory things? Then we won't get kicked out?!?

That's what I meant. As long as it's not those things, who cares what someone says on the net?

I think he is speaking in terms of semantics. If you are banned you are prohibited from doing a certain thing. I think the term suggests permanency. I guess the temporary alternative term would be suspension. Again, I think it's an issue of semantics.
