Kudos to the new CM for attempting this but let's be honest, it's too little too late. The damage was done long ago when Sapience played fanbois favourites against basically everyone else. Beyond a mild reminiscent yearning to have my June, 2007 join date back on my forum posts, I really couldn't care less about having my ban lifted (and I probably deserved the ban anyway). That said, Cordovan asked, so I'll offer the one thing I'd like to see in a CM:
Every single infraction I ever received resulted from the same pattern:
- Fanbois/ButthurtPvper/Troll attacks me for...whatever reason.
- I respond in kind, typically destroying Fanbois/ButthurtPvper/Troll and putting them squarely in their place.
- Fanbois/ButthurtPvper/Troll reports my response.
I understand a community manager doesn't have endless resources to investigate every exchange on the forums but it would take 2 seconds to see I've never once reported anyone for anything, ever. It would be nice if a moderator understood that someone who carries around the report button in a holster is *inherently* the antagonizer. Unfortunately, the go-cry-to-momma types seem to win every time.
