Berzerker is appealing two moderator actions. The first is a 2-point infraction for trolling in this post while the second is a 3-day thread ban from the same thread. The original infraction message: Berzerker, Your message (Baking Cakes and Discrimination: Or, "What Would Jesus Do?") constitutes trolling under our rules: "Yes to the last question" is referring to my question whether he would consent to having the Conversations made public in the Appeals thread in Site Feedback. This is the discussion of the infraction and thread ban between Berzerker and Lemon Merchant (referred to as me in the discussion below): From Berzerker: From me: Berzerker: Me: Berzerker: Me: Berzerker: Me: Berzerker: ------------------------------------------ I have not had the opportunity to answer his last three responses. I added ori to the conversation in hopes that he might see it and offer some insight on how I should respond. I gave Berzerker the three day thread ban for indirectly calling Lexicus a racist. I felt he was further trolling in the thread after he had been warned. Perhaps I erred. I don't know enough of American history to know if Lincoln was really a racist or not, but it seemed to me that Berzerker was making the comment to say that Lincoln was a racist, Lexicus compared himself to Lincoln, therefore Lexicus is also a racist. As for the first infraction, as you can see from one of my responses, I detailed what I thought was the transgression. He was combative, and clearly looking for an argument. I don't buy his assertion that he didn't see ori's posts. At the very least, he says he saw them after his own. He could have edited his own post and made it less accusatory and less confrontational. Berzerker has made it a habit of trolling in threads lately. Arakhor has noticed it too. As for myself, perhaps I was too hard on him, I don't know. I tend to second guess myself after the fact. Sorry for the length of this one.
