Yeah, I saw that. What I was asking was are the mods deciding what is minor and major based on some universal set criteria so that there is an overall consistency in moderation or was it up to them to individually decide what they think is minor or major. From your answer, it looks to be the latter.
Also wanted to know if the person had to express being offended by the 'flame' before any infractions were handed out, since it was something that was addressed in the discussion contained in the "Flame Rules!!" thread. Since you didn't address that, I'm going to assume that it's going to work as it has done previously instead.
If you are particularly worried about me, remember I could have banned you for insulting me several times as a flame, but I havn't given you an infraction in God knows how long.
First off, no, I wasn't asking this because I was worried about you. My question had nothing to do with any mod in particular, nor did it have any underlining messages. Just trying to make sure I understood this shit as clearly as possible, that's all.
Secondly, you couldn't have justifiably banned me for shit. I've always followed the rules based on how Shino has defined flaming via how infractions were handled. Fuck that noise, dude. : )
So just to get this straight, it's pretty much exactly the same as before (Where name calling=flaming), just that now people won't get banned for weak ass shit like calling someone a "noob" and other silly things like that?
