    5 point infraction for a joke?

    i've been given a 5 point infraction for my post in this thread - http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...26#post4502226

    reason given: "This post is designed to inflame"

    though my intent might have been misunderstood, the post was designed as humor. the thread got closed and it was in the backyard. (i think i've said worse things in these forums without being given an infraction.) i understand if you thought the joke was in poor taste. i'm just saying that the punishment might be a bit on the overkill side.

    if it weren't clear before, what i was suggesting is that the infraction is too strong a punishment and should be removed in lieu of something more appropriate.

    or, is it my breath? (i took a shower.)

    I believe the comments you made were a joke, but the joke was one that you inflame people on the forums.

    Due to similar actions in the past, I feel the infraction should stand.

    i'm not sure i understand the part highlighted in bold.

    all i've ever had is a profile infraction (an avatar was deemed inappropriate after six months of usage). if anything, my joking has been encouraged.

    I issued the infraction as the post "looked" genuine . If it were a joke it would have been better to have used some smillies . Then the emotionless WWW would not be in play.

    If it were genuinely a joke I am happy if the infraction was changed to a expiring one as opposed to the current forever.

    Mike if you want to change it , please feel free , your judgement I have complete faith in.

    it looked genuine? really??? i can't see how. to me, it was so obviously over-the-top ridiculous.

    smilies? can we not tell swift was joking with a modest proposal?

    If it were genuinely a joke I am happy if the infraction was changed to a expiring one as opposed to the current forever.

    i just noticed you said 'forever'. i don't get that at all.
