Banned on MyFICO again.

Postby Nixon » Tue Apr 28, 2015 9:19 pm

Their reasons for ban are just as vague as FICO scoring.

"Multiple violations of TOS."

How about.....sending me a PM and explaining why before turning both keys? Maybe a link to the offending post? If I actually did something wrong i'll take the ban. If CB's layout didn't suck i'd post there instead.

With the way most of the community looks up to you I sort of expected you to actually own the boards.

Sounds like someone is envious of your stature. :)

Who the hell knows anymore.

I've always been considered a controversial character over there and have publicly debated with mods over stuff that certain people consider "unethical" like B*, MS, Churning.

Figures just as soon as I tone it down I get a 1 week ban. Would love to know what exactly I did to push the envelope this time. Looks like i'll have to fire up TOR and browse since I can't even do that while banned. Whatever.

I'm banned, with no possibility of parole, for life. :)

But that's a badge I wear proudly. Unless you are doing the "Congrats +1" a billion times a day and droning on about how gardening is the meaning of life, you are too controversial for them. The mods play favorites - they let their buddies just savage anyone they feel like while if you respond in kind you get banned. Think I'm wrong? Just check out some of the nasty stuff CreditScholar says. If Nixon said that he'd be banned for life in a heartbeat.

Sorry to hear about the ban but you have better things to do with your time than post there anyway I'm sure. I can't say I miss it at all. I still read it but seeing a trillion "Congrats +1" posts after everything said just grates on the nerves after a while.

Oh i've made fun time and time again of the congratbots, and Lexie takes their side (Smorgasboard thread)
Don't get me wrong, there actually a couple of cool mods over there (About as cool as can be with the BS Jellyfish-Company man rules on that site)

I noticed a certain congratbot "coldnmn" came back recently after I outed him for being a salty bastard.

I know i'm controversial, but honestly it's just who I am. I've probably almost been banned a dozen times because the snark just makes it's way out. Oh, and they HATE the frozen report talk.

Man I personally LOVE your posts on there. Count me as a fan of yours. Your stuff is funny and witty and yeah not always 100% PC - so what? You tell it like it is. I enjoy reading your posts they contain substance not this stupid "Congrats +1" crap over and over and over again.

It's fine to congratulation people but if all you do is post "Congrats +1" for 90% of your 10,000 posts, you really aren't contributing much of value.

Many of us here are banned for saying what we actually think. I'm sure North Korea would be proud of MyFICO as would the People's Republic of China for their efforts on censorship and thought control.

By the way 09Lexie is the one who banned Otter. She didn't ban me, as I was banned before she became a mod there, but I'm sure she would have loved to have done the honors!

As I understand it, Many people love my posts over there. I really try to put creativity and thought into the majority of my posts. Why do something if you're not gonna do it right. I'm just not a boilerplate kinda guy.

The congrats +1 crap is really annoying and is the reason I stayed out of approvals most of the time. The worst offenders have tapered off, but it's still pretty rampant.
