To clarify, I've not seen or heard of anyone being banned for thread-bumping (and personally I wouldn't) but it is annoying and it is frowned upon on most message boards across the Internet, not just here. Therefore, regulars (or anyone else) are welcome to politely ask people NOT to bump threads. Warnings of being banned should not be included in such a polite warning.
RoCk, you were banned for being constantly obnoxious, argumentative, trolling, and evading bans, so let's not play the victim eh? Deciding how to moderate threads based on individual circumstances rather than a set-in-stone bunch of rules, like some sort of "law", does not constitute mods playing god or making up rules as they go along.
The whole thing is not really up for discussion on the board, particularly in a completely irrelevant thread, but if anyone wishes to express their opinions or has any questions, please feel free to private message or email me :-)
