Default Why was I banned for a sock account I didn't create?

Well,

Where does I start from?

I was originally banned for days or so because I "abused" of the REPORT function. Okay. That's right.

Then, mere minutes after I was banned, someone impersonated me by creating a SOCK ACCOUNT: "UniSol GR78".

Nobody - admins or mods - checked the IP of this sock account, so they "automatically"(?) assumed it was ME, and they extended my ban to 2 weeks. It was a ruse, literally.

Then, I created a new account, "SUPPERHERO", in order to post here and address the whole "UniSol GR78" issue. And they extended my ban for the second time, because I created the "SUPPERHERO" profile in the very first place! LMAO. So I was banned for 1 month.

Is this democracy? Is this a fair system? Tell me.

Why create your second one, and just wait out the ban then explain you didn't create the second one? But even with IP checking, a person can easily make multiple accounts using different IPs. Using one's internet (cable or whatever) would give one IP, and using data from a mobile device would give another. It's hard to really determine.

I can understand anyone being upset with their suspension length being extended especially if the alleged action isn't attributed with said individual.

Well, you would be wrong. This is a site locked behind a membership wall with rules, regulations, and moderation.

Fairness has nothing to do with anything.

So basically, once you get banned for few days, SOMEONE can create a sock account resembling yours and "FRAME" you in an extremely easy way? And your ban extended to 1 month out of blue, just because admins and mods cannot check IPs or can be fooled by them.

That sounds crap.

Thank you so much, you nailed it.

UniSol, why on earth would anyone make a sock account just to "frame" you? What sense does that make?

The key is to not get banned in the first place. Makes life less complicated for everyone.

To have fun.

The sock account was called "UniSol GR78", and it "upgraded" my original ban from 10 days to 1 month... so whoever did that, he did the right thing to ruin my reputation.

I've never seen you do anything that would cause that type of ire in someone. It's just odd. Don't people have better things to do with their time?

I don't know. Someone here doesn't like my useful, well-thought and fascinating timelines about movie franchises. Well, I'm just passionate about movies.

People do strange things, some of which some of us don't understand nor rationalize and sometimes people can be sadistic. Why do some people keep coming back over time under different sock accounts only to continue to be banned?

Is there an active, proper and legit Super-Moderator presenting my nasty experience to the creator(s) of this forum, in order to avoid this unfair issue in the future to come?
Can you pinpoint some valid name?

Thanks.

Instead of trying to publicly shame the mods or the forum, why not just contact a mod directly. There is a list of mods at the bottom of each forum (lower right hand side).

Remember the mods are not paid employees, but ppl who volunteer their time to keep the forum running smoothly and enforce rules set out by owner(s). An hour they spend moderating the forum (which as we know, operates 24/7) is an hour they are not spending with their families, watching movies or taking care of any personal duties etc....

They are also human and make mistakes.

Why would someone make the account UniSol GR78 "mere minutes" after your suspension? You're lucky you weren't perma-banned for this nonsense.

I never slammed anyone. I just suggested Mods and Admins to check the IPs and find out that I'm telling the truth. It's called "suggestion". Calm down.

Just a very silly assumption from your part. Someone (a troll) was mocking me and created that sock account. Well, you can ask Mods, they will confirm that the account was created minutes after my original ban.
I WOULD have no logic/plausible reason to start this thread in the very first place; I did that to underline an issue to Mods and common users as well.

You know, there's no need to not believe people just because that makes us look somehow "smart". I would say that it makes you look "hateful" and angry toward humanity.

I think the fact you think my post reflects a need to "calm down" supports my position that you are not handing this as well as you could.

By the way, when I created the SUPPERHERO account in order to expose the issue, I contacted the Mods via private messages, but they didn't answer me.

They just extended my ban.

I'm just telling people my undeniable truth about this situation. I was innocent. And I just wish that this doesn't happen to you or any other user anyway.

Mods and Admins just made a mistake. Okay, they are humans. Further reason why I must suggest them to not repeat this, because it's unfair.
