i have been watching this forum for a long time and I have seen sushubh being accused many times of banning members unfairly. But as Sushubh as always maintained, he doesnt have time to reason with these members and thats quite right IMO. As far as I have seen, he hasnt banned anyone until they have spewed profanities on this board or posted some crap. If the member has done something wrong then he deserves to be given a warning. He should be given atleast 2-3 warnings before he is banned but personally, I think 1 warning for any offense is sufficient. If the person feels that he has been unfairly warned then he can protest in a civilized manner. Board policies are not open to debate. Thats why they are called policies. If you dont agree with them, then you are free to suggest/request the admins or mods to reconsider the policies. But thats just about it. You cant ask them to change them just because you think they are wrong.
There was one thread asking Sushubh to add 2-3 mods per forum. We are all civilized people here. So why is there a need for mods? Well, may be some troll comes along and disrupts this forum. It is only then that moderators / admins have to edit / delete posts. If all members just exercise self moderation then there isn't any need for the admins to delete/edit posts or even ban any member.

Dont you feel you are being a bit selfish here? I mean without the members, this board will die out. But you are right. You do reserve the right to ban anyone, anytime. Some members have accused you of banning fellow members for having a different opinion. But as far as I have seen you have used those rights justly and hope that you continue to do so.
Dont view my post as a support for sushubh. I have merely stated facts. I know both point of views - of members as well as of the mods/admins (not just here but on many forums). This is the most rational view that you can get.
hkbwarez, you could've re-registered and politely protested but you chose to disgrace yourself infront of everyone. You dont give any reason for your fellow members to support you and you gave the admins one more reason to ban you, again.
