So Dork's actions, breaking rules as an admin is acceptable? These actions aren't deemed as bad, because they were "admin rules"? I don't want to get into specifics but I think Dork's violations were much worse than anything Palma ever did. So Palma doesn't get the chance to earn his way back in at all?
More & more it sounds like the rules are made to be tailored to support the individual need of the situation at hand rather than being standard uniform protocols.
A) Palma was indeed a staff member. But him writing for the main page has nothing to do with the rules here. Those are 2 seperate things. They are just designated on here because they deserve some credit for helping the main page.
B) Dork broke a rule as an admin and was kicked out. He showed that he was sorry and helped out as the vbookie manager and a deputy mod for quite a while so we brought him back
C) Palma could have signed up with a new account and nobody would ahve known but instead he decided to create new accounts and continue his antics after being banned, so his IP was banned. So he had the opportunity for another chance but blew it. Never mind the fact that he has had plenty of previous problems in the past for not keeping the flaming under control
