I basically quoted the "I am 12 & what is this" meme. Then i got modded for being under aged....plz tell me there is something wrong here. Either a mod hated my guts or they just don't know the internet. I mean...i sure as hell dont look 12 if they took the time to check my blog, but oh well. Im appealing the ban, but im kinda confused. w/e only time will tell if everything is straightened out. whats the stupidest ban u've ever heard off?

most forums will do this, but gamespot/gamefaqs are the worst about it. There's some rule somewhere saying you need to be at least 13 to register and use the forums. Gamespot/GameFAQ mods will pretty much ban you even if you joke about it.

In fact they are probably some of the worst moderators on the Internet.

They'll ban you for whatever reason they want.

Since you asked I think my last post there was something liek "That's idioted, would rather eat chicken figgets instead o.O!" I got a suspension so I think I called the mod a prick and then he said my ass would be banned and lo and behold I was! Forum's a joke, I woulda taken a warning or something but a week suspension for clowning? lulz

I haven't been banned, but I have received more than one warning. They are extremely conservative. Probably more than any other forum I have ever seen on the internet.

I use to visit their forum back in the day. You had to be careful what you could say there. Not as bad as gamefaqs but spot could be strict if you trolled to hard. Luckily I just got tired of it and eventually ended up here.

Actually he got banned for being an underage user. GF/GS's ToS explicitly states that even joking that you are under 13 will get you banned.

"You must be at least 13 years old to register for the Service. We do not knowingly collect any information from any users under 13 years of age, and if it is found that an underage user has fraudulently registered, their account will be blocked from using the site any further."

I hate most "memes"... And I hate that word. The worst is, "lol u mad?", thrown around over every game I play, like way too much.
