I will be seeking assistance with admin if only to lift the ban so that my contribution there are not after all a complete waste of time.

I know now who my allies there are and who are not. It is ridiculous to give a single moderator that much power especially when their judgement may be clouded by a narrow angle of perception.

I'm really not sure why you are so worried about it. It' s just one online board. I felt the same happened to me but I let it go and got over it, and in hindsight I'd like to thank the mod who banned me for doing me a favor as it gave me back what would have otherwise been hours of my life down the toilet.

Is it really worth all that? I guess only you know if it is to you. It sure wasn't to me.

Call me crazy but to give advice and assistant over a span of 17,000 posts only to have it shut down permanently by one little, damn near innocuous remark, because of a moderator who clearly seems to have a beef with me personally is a little more than annoying.

That's not to say though that if I were unbanned I would just pick up where I left off. I do not trust the majority of the moderators or the CL's there any longer.

It may just be one website, but it's where I really got on track about fixing my credit.

Well look at it this way - it helped you to move to fix your credit so that's a plus, and you also contributed a lot to others. Maybe that mod had a hard on for you, just like one did for me, but you still did your part to get the good word out.

So it's not for nothing. Going forward someday you may thank them for giving you back a part of your life that would otherwise have been lost.

Here's the thing Nixon. You weren't banned (IMO) because of one comment. We all know you pushed your "agenda" a lot. "Coy" references to MS and churning, even after being told you weren't to discuss those things. So, to be fair, it wasn't just one comment that did you in. You also had a habit of adding small comments to threads that would sometimes, intentionally or not, incite debates. I don't think the mods really abused their power -- it's within their right to ban people. There's no law protecting you to be able to post on a forum. If they want to ban you, they can. Your time was not "for nothing" -- you posted a TON and you got and gave advice and that's great. Doesn't mean you need to do that all day every day for the rest of your life!

Admins will only lift bans if they feel the mod was unreasonable about it. Since you were banned several times previously, and warned, I don't think the admin will just snap their fingers and remove it.

Even if they do, maybe you should take the advice of others here. It's just a website. You don't need to devote day and night to posting there. As far as it helping you fix your credit, it's just my opinion, but "fixing" does not equal churning bonuses and applying every two weeks for a card. That equals too many new accounts, too many inquiries and in general NOT "fixed" credit. Spending too much time on there is bad for you anyway. Inevitably, it makes you more impulsive. You app more.

Also consider the fact that yes, they gave you back time you'd otherwise be losing. Even with your "reduced" amount of posting in the recent past, you were still on there a LOT. You do not need to devote several hours of every day to credit. Go outside. Enjoy some hobbies. It's summertime. Spend time with your wife. Go to the beach. The mountains. Whatever. Enjoy life. Don't waste your life on a website 24/7. You will not die thinking "I should have spent more time on my credit". It's important but should NOT dominate your existence.

Why do you like shitposting so much and still being so hung up on this non event? This is a site that you've repeatedly criticized and bashed here so much ironically.

And you did stir the pot over there quite a lot. Remember what happened with LethargicAge or how about that bet you made with pizza1 several months ago? Yeah. Don't try to play the victim there either. The proof is all in the pudding and in your massive post history on that site.

The "offending" post did not push my churning agenda.

Ok but you have to remember bans are not a "one bad post = banned" type of thing all the time. It's also based on history. Track record. If your posts were constantly "on the edge" as in the churning and whatnot, the last "offending" post was merely the final nail in the coffin. You seem incapable or unwilling to understand that you were not banned because of ONE post...you were banned ostensibly because the mods were tired of your history of posts.

When I was banned it was not due to one post. It was due to admittedly going too far in a couple of debate threads. Separate posts. Separate times. Again, a track record. Your agenda (MS/churn/whatever) doesn't line up with what myfico wants, evidently. Can't you just accept that and move on? Fighting to get a ban lifted is almost certainly a waste of time given the multiple warnings and previous bans. You only get so many chances.

Doesn't matter. You were a shitposting shitstirrer. End of story and now you're just pissed because you fucked up. Own up to it and stop crying about it.

This video sums it up better than I can.

It's so ironic to me that you spent a lot of time bashing the site, yet you yourself embodied a lot of what's exactly wrong with the site in how you acted, the way you wrote your posts, etc.

You're hardly any better than alvon123 or coldnmn in a way.

I have to say no to that because HF was banned for quoting my post. I'll agree that there was some prejudice in that post getting me banned however.

Let's face it, both and HF got banned because an angry old man didn't feel like being questioned that morning. Plain and simple.
