Why would you ignore it as a moderator? Aren't you supposed to do something about it? Like issue warnings? Then bans?

It's not the content that matters. Negative social interaction is a stressor in any environment.

Why can't Bob just be ignored after it's explained to him why his posts have been deleted? If he does insult you on a personal level, he's obviously just doing it for a reaction, and he won't get the satisfaction he seeks if you don't provide it!


I would imagine it would be because if Bob has the gull to insult a Mod on a personal level, he most likely might do so to other users too, which is something that would need to be dealt with


^ Exactly - and mods are appointed to deal with issues like that, so they have to follow through accordingly.

However if bob is annoying a regular user then ignore bob and watch him get angry and perma-banned

And give Bob exactly what he wants? If you react to Bob's pathetic attempts to get your attention, you'll just show him how easy it is to push your buttons!

If he's harassing other users, that's a different story... then it's your job to do something about it... but if he's just insulting you to get a rise out of you, you can be the bigger man and walk away rather than feed him the negative attention that he seeks!

But for a mod to know if Bob is just insulting him and not other users, then they would have to waste valuable time going through all what Bob has said to make sure he isn't bothering other users. Valuable time that could be used to deal with all the other Bob's out there

Breaking the rules is breaking the rules, dude. We don't ban them because they ruffle our feathers, we ban them because it's clearly stated in the rules that "flaming, trolling, harassing, and insulting" is prohibited.

Doesn't Armor Games do IP bans? Or was that something else...? But can't you notify the ISP of this Bob and report the inappropriate comments, or was his rule-breaking not severe enough? Also can't AG log the IP addresses of Bob and see what other accounts log in with that IP address?

Sorry if this was brought up already.

that would suck, what if bob had a nice brother or sister, would that mean that they might get banned because of bob being bob?
