Avsim is becoming ban-happy

Recommended Posts

I am so disgusted with Avsim now. You guys (Tom Allensworth) have such a great community on your hands, such a great opportunity to expand the Flightsim community, and what do you do? You turn it into a communist government where if a user says the slightest thing you don't like, you ban them!

 

Do you enjoy banning people? I am sure you do. I was reading a topic about the 777 release, when a user mentioned a slur again PMDG claiming that the delay was just a sales propaganda, and Tom replied with "I haven't banned someone in over 24 hours" "Want me to? Huh huh?"

 

And the user was promptly banned. I saw a similar situation with another user who made a comment to PMDG about the 777 bug and he was also banned!

 

Just tonight I made a comment in a topic, where a user said they are not going to buy the PMDG 777 because they aren't supporting the future, and I said" "Live in the present, and enjoy it).

 

I WAS BANNED FROM THE TOPIC!! WHY? I didn't say ANYTHING bad there. (Tom Allensworth)

 

You will probably ban me for posting this topic, because you don't "like it". 

 

Avsim is such a great experience to share our experiences with Flightsim, but there's one thing sure, you guys need to stop being ban ##### and let us express ourselves more without being BANNED.

 

Like I said, I love Avsim for the community. And that is ALL I love about it.

Technically it's a dictatorship. Not a communist regime but they can be similar I suppose.

Stop complaining.

 

I have been here 9 years and never had an issue.  If people thought about what they say then nothing to be scared of.

To the OP,

Maybe it's because there have been so many irrelevant posts made in the PMDG Forums... enough to temporarily bog down the AVSIM servers the day the Triple 7 came out! The PMDG servers I can understand, but a Forum Site? C'mon now...

When there are dozens of posts basically saying "Is it out yet", or "Why can't I log on?", people complaining, flaming and essentially whining for the sake of doing so... then yes, it gets old after a while.

I'm sorry if you feel AVSIM is being heavy handed, but it's Tom's playground. His house, his rules. The same Rules the rest of us have to abide by. Tom and the Mods have good reason and hard evidence to support their position... be glad you weren't sucked into the maelstrom two years ago when MS Flight came out!

I agree - also the thousands of posts now saying "where is the 2d panel" and "where do i get new liveries"

I've been here 6 years, and I will say that they have become much more strict over the years. But, if you didn't know, a few years ago the AVSim community was almost completely destroyed by a miscreant from the UK. AVSim doesn't tolerate much anymore. I kind of understand.

Ain't that the truth! That was hair raising for sure.

Believe me, I've been very vocal about allowing open dialogue. I think a forum shouldn't discourage discourse. If you look back in hostory, the greatest of all forums, the Forum Magnum, was so important because it facilitated a confrontation of ideas. But the silliness popping up on this forum lately deserves extra "attention," in my opinion. People have lost all sense of decency. I don't agree with shutting down threads entirely, but I do think banning people is necessary from time to time. With major events, like the PMDG 777 release, the forum gets more traffic--and more trolls--so you should expect the banning to be more frequent.

PMDG has a very strict policy of deleting posts that are not signed with the users name. eg look at Lawyer+Pilots post, in his sig at the bottom of his post is his real name.

 

More than likely this is the reason your post got removed.

 

Apparently getting people to sign their real name makes them less inclined to be knobs.

And Avsim have been putting up with previous banned mambers re signing in as another user. Claiming to be Female, when it turns out the person has more hair on their chin than Leon Russell.

So, Furmik, is your real name Leon or Doris ?

If you don't want to get banned, maybe you should read AVSIM's rules for starts. Sign your name!

Not required outside the PMDG forums ...

 

Tom, don't ban him; every dictator ( :P) needs a court jester!

I'm pretty sure step number one to getting not banned is not calling Tom a ban ######..Also, your use of 'you guys' and then calling out a single person immediately there after annoys me. Just my opinion.

Or just give him what he obviously so desperately craves: the 'prestige' of being the first onto the wall of shame.

 

Now, where did I put my eggs?

Our "dictator" will find out ...   :P

His BS detector is second to none.  As long as I continue to give the impression I am a nutcase, I am quite safe. :Party:

Actually I kind of love Tom Allensworth too. He's the Chuck Norris of Avsim.  :P Think of this as his house. There is no freedom of speech here, nor should it be. If you can't behave like a guest, then find somewhere else to visit.

 

Also I don't believe a single word you wrote about "your friend" not having earned the ban. I almost wish Tom would post what was written here to prove you wrong, but he doesn't have to. He's earned our trust years ago and there's no chance in he** you'll convince the regulars on this forum otherwise.

 

I know I just did, but anyway:

Our friend "furrmik" is like the 7th or 8th incarnation of the same person that has been banned as many times. I would delete this entire thread, but I would rather point out the stupidity of some of the idiots that haunt these halls. What this genius doesn't seem to understand is that we capture IP's. When he figures out that he wastes a lot of energy showing how stupid he is, publicly, maybe he will crawl off to some other site and be a pest there. Now, I am sorry to say, this thread is closed. And yes, he is about to be the first on the Wall of Shame, complete with emails, IP's, home addresses and all that we can reveal.
