I think the logic goes like this:
If you post something that’s against the rules, you’re creating work for the mods, and the more you shit up the forum, the more work they have to do to clean up after you. You get punished accordingly.
Your friendly warning is the sticky at the top of the forum that tells you the forum rules. You should always read this, on any forum, unless you want to make it clear that you don’t give a fuck about the community or trying to fit in, and you just want your wants and needs satisfied.
Oh, and use the search function. The last two people who created threads to complain/question the mods’ ban rates got banned for being stupid. At the very least, you could’ve dug them up and learned from the past.
I’ve a feeling this thread’s not long for this world, I just hope I don’t get hurt for trying to explain to the OP.
