Speaking of, I remember getting a PM from a mod when I was moderated, telling me why/what happened.
That's a PM generated automatically by the forum's warning manager and sent as if from the warning moderator's PM outbox. I think you actually have to follow the link to the post that drew the warning to see why you got it.

And a fat lot of good that is when you do that and repeatedly get an 'Error' message 'cos the link is off limits to you and when you query this you get the same 'off limits' link again.

Now I've simply lost interest and a lot of respect for the moderation process on OC.net, very sadly.

BUWHAHAHAHA!!!

You have very high expectations of internet forum moderators apparently.  If you don't know why you got warned, just PM a mod.  It isn't hard and it is pretty much the rule on every web forum known to mankind.

As a side note, complaining about the moderation process is also a good way to end up getting other color dots next to your name.  This is my friendly assistance to you so when you get a yellow dot, you will know in advance why you got it.
Guys! They're not intercoursing. It's just an unfortunate angle.

Bless you for kindness. I already tried that and got nowhere. I don't want to go further. But thank you again.

?

Ask for permission to the private boards. The thread may have been moved. I'll look at what post you got warned on to see.

Otherwise all the times I've had a dot I always know what it was for based on the PM.

Don't know how you lost respect...

OK I found your warned post its in Politics.

The thread was moved there so if you don't have access, that is why.

Instead of whining publicly you could send him a PM.

I did again and again getting nowhere for some time, and have sent one thanking him when I finally found out what was what. You on the other hand might find out one (1) the facts before commenting, and (2) usefully learn to express yourself less rudely. I have been polite to you so far but your approach invites something stronger than I have chosen here. But from now on you'll get as good as you give out!
