Really!! Interesting, I know you delete many post for obvious reasons but didn't know he been having a pop at the mods. Will he be allowed back at some stage?
Sometimes we delete off-topic posting when it gets out of hand.
Sometimes we delete what we perceive to be consistent negative posting, especially if it's deemed to be WUM posting.
There is a line though.
When behaviour becomes aggressive and when posters begin to channel that towards mods, on both the site and in messages,
then permanent bans quickly follow.
I'm posting this as an attempt to be transparent for other users.
Rib was not banned "for being negative".
