Somethings Wrong at TWoP Forum...

Have any of you've noticed that the moderating at the TWoP Forum sucks ass and the forum rules are fucking retarded. For example I signed on the forum recently (two days) and the overzealous moderators have penalised me twice for no apparent reason; I had a 20% warning for starting an innocent new topic, my warning level was bumped up to 40% when I typed out the word "absurd" but the modrators saw it as "insulting" for some reason.

Do any of you think the moderation at the Television Without Pity Forum is monstrously unfair?

Yeah, at first I was trying to figure out what the hell "TWoP" was.

I say we give him a 99% warning.

Not sure why you want to complain about that here, but yes they are very very uptight over there.

TWOP? Oh you mean the site with all the housewives from AOL that think its HILARIOUS to give every character, relationship, or plot point a goofy nickname?The site where an ep discussion consists of 10 pages of analyzing how a throwaway line may have affected a characters feelings? The site that sucks?

Is that the TWOP you're talking about?

Just googled them, and I don't think I could hang out with those people. I'm minor league compared to their neuroses. The same thing happened when I wanted to talk about Harry Potter and all the HP forums were moving uber fast w/gibberish beyond my comprehension. However here I followed it fine. I like DVDTalk. These are my people.

Being an admin of 3 other forum sites myself, I would have banned you just for this topic. But then again I make it clear in the rules that your problems from another forum are just that, your problem, not mine or my other users.

I find the episode recaps to be hilarious at times.

While I've never been a fan of TWoP (not much insight, not as clever as they think they are), I'm not sure how their moderating practices are any concern of TV Talk. If you don't like the site, don't visit.

Yes, it is my problem and other people do not necessarily have to take notice of my minor complaint, but I've already seen an entire forum dedicated to how unfair the moderating is at TWoP Forum (TWoP Sucks). So TWoP Forum has already been complained about before, even though I don't really need to drag it here for other people to see, so in that case I apoligise.
