Inconsistant application of forum rules

How come it is OK for someone to start a topic about a video of terrorists getting shot by a missile, but then I get a warning for posting a link to a site contains the same stuff? I just figured posting links to a site which has videos of actual combat was OK since others can get away with it.

Seems like you have a point to me.

Naturally, since the forums have been so smoothly running and bug-free, it's been me simply favoring one poster over another.

Ok. The thread stays deleted. I retract my warning on Soviet Narco States for this incident. If either you or Eutrusca show poor judgment and link to graphic videos again, things will get very unpleasant.

(I will point out that you did acknowledged that you were knowingly linking to 'really gorey combat videos', and when another poster told you that was not a good idea and the precedent, you brushed it off.)

10% deletion rate, with disgruntled ex-mods = smooth?
Forum constantly lagging and going down = bug-free?

It's already been proven by others that the math skills used to come to the conclusion that there is propagandistic foul play going on concerning the polls were faulty, but let's explain something about the statistics.

10% of RESPONDENTS claimed to have been deleted once. Not 10% of the total population of Nationstates nations. As I recall, most NationStates nations never have logged into the forums.

The posters who have been deleted over the years were deleted for good reason: posting about how to commit crimes in the real world, linking to obscene flash movies, being UN cheats, griefing, et cetera. Why, some of them are even DoS and yet they continue to come back!

Now honestly, I find it almost flattering that certain people are so enamored of me that they seem to feel the need to continue to draw my attention with these little billets-doux, but I'm already seeing someone. Really. It was never meant to be, so please, move on and God Bless.

And please, do have the decency not to presume to speak for others nor appeal to authority by mentioning "ex-moderators." It is dishonest, and it is certainly not respectful to them as it suggests they cannot speak without your aid. I assure you that any of the number of people who have retired from moderating this site can and will express their opinions openly as they see fit.
