I'd just like to say that suspending people for using capital letters in chat is one of the stupidest things I've ever known. Using capital letters doesn't do anyone any harm, its not offensive. What the hell is the big deal??? I find it kind of funny when I see this happen in chat, but really it's just sad!

Where is it in the PLIT Conduct & Privacy?! I don't see it anywhere, so the Mods are making rules up on the go. So technically, anyone that is banned for using capitals, shouldn't be!

Oops sorry all the power must have went to my head. Please don't ban me.

I gotta agree with this, it does seem nonsensical to ban people for using Caps.

nobody gets "banned" for using Caps.

You can get suspended for EXTENSIVE use of caps - using caps in every post for a longer peiod of time. (because, lets face it, all it really does is annoy other players. Try chatting with other players when every second chat entry is someone asking for matches in big capital letters)

Now, for one thing, such a suspension wont be a long one. Suspending someone for weeks because he used caps is rediculous, and I am a little offended that you seem to think that I possess no common sense whatsoever.

As for the chat moderators - I dont know if any of you realized, but if you look on the contact page, there are quite a number of them. And as they are all different people, they will have different views on how to handle a situation or where a line is crossed. Some may be a bit too leniant, others a bit too strict... IT CANT BE HELPED.

Overall, I would say every one of them is doing a good job. If you have a problem with something a mod did, send me an e-mail. If you feel you got unjustly suspended, send me an e-mail. If someone uses offensive language in the chat or misbehaved in some other way, send me an e-mail.

We have a moderator e-mail address for a reason you know...

I don’t get annoyed if someone uses capital letters, just seems like they’re shouting or talking loudly. I doubt that many people are annoyed by it.
Getting suspended at all for using capital letters is ridiculous.

That is stupid... Blinky said once that even this was illegal - using proper grammar with capitals at the start of a sentence. Why is it such a big deal?

And on the topic of banning, is saying s**t in the chat acceptable / unacceptable (I mean using the *** censors)

if it's able to be figured out by the mods, it's supposidly unacceotable.

If the general consensus is that caps should be allowed, then we can give it a try.
