I was given an infraction for inappropriate language and harassing the staff. In the post concerned, all I typed was "...?"
Now, please correct me if I'm wrong, but that's not even language - it's punctuation. And the posts before it were very polite. I wasn't - as bodhi.zazen suggested - asking about the accounts of others. I was simply asking for clarification as to why a certain post was closed. I'm trying to understand not only the CoC, but how the staff interprets the CoC so that I don't violate it. Now I find that asking for clarification to avoid breaking the CoC is, in fact, breaking the CoC.
I don't really care about the infraction, but I guess I am looking for a little consistency. I went over my post in the RC, and there's no possible way at all there was any violation of even polite etiquette, much less the code of conduct.
Besides, I wasn't demanding details. If a staff member had replied to my RC post and said, "Hey, don't bump this thread anymore" I would have stopped. I wasn't bumping it every fifteen minutes, either. I bumped it the first time after two hours and, realizing that was too much, waited sixteen hours before I asked again - politely, I may add, with zero harassment (or words).
Am I just being singled out? I'm not sure exactly what the point (or cause) of the infraction was.
Can you guys clarify?
