Racism.

Last night I was perusing the forums and saw a comment by one of the users. He was obviously heated, and was calling another user some names. One of those was, "Fudgepacking Jew" I reported the post and moved on. I awoke this morning, and happened to be reading the same thread. I noticed the member was still not banned. I know you cannot see other user's infractions, but I thought racism was an insta-ban. When I looked back on the original conversation that used the offending term, I noticed it was no longer there, as if the user had edited it out, or a mod had deleted it. My question is... Why is calling someone a "******" an instant ban, but a "fudgepacking jew" not? That seems like an awfully offensive term to me, just as bad, if not worse than "******"

I assume, that the mod who saw the reported thread saw the original context of it, in case the member edited his post.

Answers?

I was trying not to "name names"

I believe PimpinTheDeadbox said it. Around post 13 or so, it was late at night, so I may be wrong about the post #

I'll be honest, posts like that are very difficult to moderate. The user in question had a clean history and was obviously heated because he was being ignored and he hadn't received what he paid for. That doesn't make it right in way, but we do try to see where the user is coming from, especially before perm banning an account. Would a different moderator have handled it differently and perm banned him? Possibly. We have to give our moderators the leeway to deal with situations on their own because it is impossible to lay out guidelines for ever conceivable situation. We don't have a "Racism" infraction because we don't want moderators to simply use it and not look at the situation and decide what it really deserves instead of using a default with a defaulted number of infraction points for what is almost always a complicated situation. Sometimes it deserves a stern PM, other times a warning or an infraction. Most the time it gets a perm ban.

In the above thread, one of the members was "heated" and called another member a "******" He got an instant temp, and it sounded like he was going to be up for a perm. I don't see how that situation is any different than this situation. I realize every situation is different, but these are very similar except for the term usage. It seems like the word "******" would get you a perm but "fudgepacking jew" won't? It sure looks that way to me.

Unfortunately you have your facts wrong. That's not exactly what happened.

I wasn't there for the whole thing, that's just how it looks to me.

I understand it looks confusing, but there was more to it. That's why the moderators that actually have to do the dirty work can see more than the user can so they can actually make a fully informed decision.

So you're saying, since there is no "racism infraction" he got away with it, without any consequences?
