I'm back after my one month ban, and man is it nice. Bummed I missed out on some "pick em'" challenges but oh well.

I was banned after posting a comment poking fun at the Tito/Jenna incident. I like many people when interacting with a rapidly developing thread read a couple pages then skimmed the rest and shared my thoughts. I missed Ramma's post about making jokes resulting in a ban. Ignorance is no excuse for breaking the rules, so I totally understand what happened and why. What I now propose is way to help preventing this from happening in the future.

If quickly developing thread is turning heated, and a mod/admin states that certain comments will result in a ban, why not change the color of the thread on the boards? Instead of the traditional orange-ish yellow change it red. That way all will be aware to pay close attention to what they post.

Just a thought. Either way glad to be back!

That would require a written explanation as to why the color was changed and what it signified, which--for a poster who is not going to bother even reading the actual thread--would probably be just as overlooked as any explicit warnings.

For the record, we didn't change policy for that thread. MMAnews has a long standing emphasis on the fact that discrimination has no place here, regardless of whether it is racist, sexist, homophobic or religious-bias in nature.

Regardless, welcome back, and best of luck.

Shouldn't need mods to babysit. Just use some common sense and decent judgment before you click the 'Submit Reply' button.
