Not to beat a dead horse (as I've posted on this topic before) but....

I was banned from the RATS board in February for "voilating the terms".

I know many of you on here also frequent that board and have had similar experiences. I pressed the RATS mod to find out why I was banned, and finally got an answer that it was a post where i used the word "fcuk". Which I thought was a funny play on the perfume, blah, blah, blah. Well the post was directed at a member named ZappaFan. I was content to lurk since then. But yesterday, someone was writing about NaptownSeth being banned, and blamed it on ZappaFan. ZappaFan then posts that he has only every personally had a hand in banning one person, me. And he uses my real first name in the post. Only a moderator or adminstrator would know this?

So I join RATS again and call him out on using my name, tell him I 've haven't posted ANYTHING since February, blah, blah, blah. He replies that he's a computer geek and likes to help the moderators, because he know what a tough job it is (I'm paraphrasing). I call him the hall monitor we all hated in grade school, and BOOM, I'm banned again and the entire thread about NaptownSeth is gone from the board.

I feel better after venting.

You have posted twice here, so far... and each post has been eternally etched into my brain.

And it isn't just because of the text...

I'm not 100% sure but my theory is the quality of their site. from the admins on down, is more Rat like than that of a Star.
