Topic: https://forum.lowyat.net/index.php?showtopic=4530148

A month ago I replied "fuck off" in the above topic and a mod suspended me for 30 days under the flaming/trolling/harassment rule.

I believe I wasn't harassing and flaming anyone in particular so that only leaves trolling which I would like to argue is unjustified by citing past posts by an admin:

Well, it's in Kopitiam where thread derailment and trolling are a common sight. Mods are humans too like every other /K-tard.

As long as the trolling does not veer into the direction of excessive insults towards another person's parents, race or religion, it's still within the permissible boundaries of /K.
Unless you are suggesting that trolling should be prohibited in Kopitiam, then yes, moderators are allowed to troll in /k as well just like any other regular members, provided that boundaries are not crossed. Trolling is not an offense in Kopitiam, as far as I know.

However, trolling is prohibited in serious discussion sections such as the Hardware section. As such comments like the one you posted in the Hardware section's NVIDIA topic is prohibited and can only be posted in Kopitiam.
If I made that post in a serious discussion like RWI, I would understand the suspension. But this is Kopitiam we are talking about. If simply posting "fuck off" is enough to trigger a suspension like this, probably half the regulars would have been banned long time ago.

If an admin feels my suspension is unjustified, please consider my appeal to remove this infraction from my warn level.

Thank you.

While I'd usually give a person a day, the problem is that;

1. Everyone was joining in = Spam chain. -1. Thus deterrence required. Plus I kinda still remember your police case in 2009, so -1 on character. Yes, I've been here that long.

HongKi is no better looking back at the mod notes.

If it makes you happy, everyone else who had a record in that thread got the same.

Also gents, if you want start a thread like this, please don't have any dupe accounts. We can detect them.

I believe this forum is a news source for our local journalist so it makes sense to moderate the courtesy and type language being used.
