    So really....wtf is going on here. The BD CM debacle was shiesty enough, censorship and banning made for an interesting couple of days. Now they banned Natediddy?? WTF is going on at DF. I am about all out of faith in my home forum, can we get an explanation as to what direction the mods are taking this place please?

    Aparently not if they are banning productive community members now... I would still like an explanation before they ban me for something assinine like inciting the mob or trolling, non of which this thread is meant to do or be.

    answer

    OK guys listen,,,,

    Nate was asked to be on staff. I liked him but felt it didn't work for where we were. I removed him from the team right after the BD mess. He was not to thrilled to say the least. I understand that and I understand sometimes tough choices had to be made.

    I originally just removed his mod status. I did not ban him. Yesterday he made a conscious decision to flame at me over it. He has been removed for 30 days and ONLY 30 days. call it a cooling off period. I wish things had been different. Nate is a good guy who spent a lot of time here. I hope he comes back and we an work behind the scenes to elevate the tension he has.

    Let me explain when you are asked to be on the mod team here at DF. You are on a 30 day probation period. Kinda like a t anew job. I was rude for the way i did it. I have apologized for that. I will say the same to you guys. I do feel somewhat responsible for this. We didn't make an announcement because I didn't want to rub it AL over the forum. Especially after the Bd and Cyan thing. I am truly sorry it went this way. I don't take it lightly and had a difficult decision to make. You guys see 928 is still on the team as well as every team member here from the start.

    If you have any questions feel free to ask here or by PM. I only ask you keep it civil and no name calling bashing etc. etc. Will be honest and fair with my replies if needed

    thanks

    Miami

    I guess its as good as we will get. I'm just tired of the drama at this point. I'm gonna have to take a break from the forums fo a while I think.

    I for one hope Nate comes back, both his posts and him personally have been a real help to me in the past. Just throwing my support out there, for what it's worth.

    I really hope Nate comes back too, he's really helpful here and really cool in IRC. That being said, I don't think everything that happens needs to be public information, after the UD v DF v CM I am pretty much over forum drama for a few years.

    So let me get this straight, you removed him after the BD debacle yet you don't state why then ban him for 30 days yet say you were rude and feel somewhat responsible, correct?

    Wtf...am I the only one that thinks that makes absolutely no sense? I know nate well from IRC and I know how tolerate and level headed he is.

    This is just another case of poor judgement imo. Does anyone on staff here have any common sense left at all? First the BD fiasco then cyanogen gets banned and the poor handling of that, now this.

    I think that makes 3 strikes. John you are letting your mods poor judgement and rash decisions ruin what I thought was the best android forum around. I can't imagine what to expect next.

    +1 forkup....You hit the perverbial nail on the head. This is why I am done with this place now. I know nate through multiple conversations over the course of months. DF did him wrong, especially miami. After hearing his side of all this it just seems like more of the same....censorship. You can't personally attack one persons credibility and then ban them when they call you on it while warning the rest of the community.

    We will see if I ever come back....if nate does (which I doubt he will) I will consider it. I'm not the most active member so I doubt I will be missed, but I'm taking a stand for what is right. This is why I left alldroid back in the day, and why I feel its necessary to leave DF.
