Moderator Action: This appeal thread is in its original form, save for the removal of PM correspondence due to the lack of the poster's consent. Please read the forum rules: http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?t=422889 bhavv has requested a review of a 3 point infraction received on 21 June for this post. The infraction PM is as follows: <removed> The entire PM correspondence with Bootstoots following the infraction is as follows: <removed> He never replied to Bootstoots. Presumably he's not contesting the two day ban, which has now expired, but simply the number of infraction points (though these points have also expired and did not contribute to his current ban - he won't be unbanned if successful here). A 'genuine attempt' to resolve concerns is a precondition of a review, and I've told him this, because he also wanted to appeal his infraction by leif, before he'd bothered discussing it with leif. In this case he at least sent one PM, and Bootstoots is happy for the review to go ahead, so I haven't rejected the review out of hand. bhavv adds the following in the review request and a subsequent PM: <removed> <removed> On the page of the thread before the infraction, Bootstoots gave this warning. So two things that are irrelevant are 1) whether the post would normally be in breach of the non-RD thread OT rules, and 2) whether the mod text was necessary in the first place (as the mod text is binding regardless of its necessity). The question then is whether in the context of the mod text warning, this post is worth 3 points.
