    Ok, I haven't been here in a while but I've been caught up on the rules and such.

    He is a very VERY Respected member here on iPod Touch Fans. So much so, that he was used as a spectacle, a Martyr if you will.

    He recieved a warning for Bumping a thread, I believe it was. The Post

    That is not what is bugging me. What is bugging me, is the response he got.

    69 responses. HE GOT 69 RESPONSES. Why is everyone using him as a Martyr. He got that many responses just over a WARNING over a BUMP and everyone goes NUTS.

    I don't see anyone else going nuts over other Warnings and Infractions on people that none of us even pay attention to.

    People are getting angry over the rules and the Strictness of it all. Rules are there for a reason people. Get over it.

    Moderators and Super Moderators are not above the rules. Why should HE Be excused?

    I have more to say but... I'll leave it to the responses.

    No one is really using him as a Martyr. Some did, and got others to deem the rules as questionable.

    Because he's respected and well known people go crazy about it. But if a new person or unknown would do the same there will be about 4 replies. I don't understand why everyone is not treating others equal. We're the same. And we will be treated the same.

    Its because he is popular. Look at the Go Avalanche one, i know it didnt have as much, but it did have 2 pages. The rules are just a little too crazy. I used to bump threads when i would do something or needed help with something and i never got in trouble

    Correction: We all want to be treated the same.

    Or, there was this response because the so called 'double post' was just an update to his own thread? Or am I missing something? Did you all really post in there just because it was spoony?
