LaRoza is the latest moderator to give me a warning, unmerited, for "excessive bumping". This is ridiculous because excessive bumping is not against the CoC. I need no justify whether it was excessive, simply that it is unmentioned and thus I did not break any rule.
I know LaRoza dislikes me so there is bias here. But even she sometimes posts "jokey" posts that serve no purpose in otherwise on-topic threads. This is far more annoying than bumping a thread twice within 4 hours.
Further, I would like you to look into how this moderator conducts himself. Below is the full argument between us:

Is patronizing which is a breach of the first rule in the CoC. LaRoza is also part of the group 'The Cabal':Originally Posted by LaRoza
Which is basically a mockery of my long-time opinion that arguments should not be accepted based on authority.
If I say something right now. This all adds up to a big mess:
- Biased moderating (not just in relation to me... I have started seeing it for others too)
- Members which in my opinion should be banned for their constant, but subtle, insults. These include the likes of CptPicard who has been nothing but negative. In fact, after I reported one of his posts and matthew gave him a "warning infraction" he changed his signature to "Arguing on the internet is like participating in the special Olympics, even if you win you're retarded." Which is quite obviously an insult to me but disguised as a jokey, non-personal signature... Even taken that way it is inappropriate.
- Many posts in Programming Talk need closing far quicker than they are because of the fires of insults but LaRoza mostly leaves them like this thread: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=890695. That has been extremely heated.
- Even when I do report things, often nothing is done by administrators which leads me to lose faith in the whole forum... Which I was previously in love with.
Can you please do something to save this forum, instead of just ignoring all this. I would request that my incorrect warning is removed, LaRoza is given a warning, and CptPicard is banned. Of course, like always, nothing will happen.
Why is it that I have received two warnings in about a week and previously had nothing? My posting style hasn't changed... Why does there appear to be such a double standard?
These forums aren't what they were,
