Posts asking this question in this forum (there have been a few) have always been "entertaining" to say the least. This one would be even more so if Detail Man were not still banned, but I anticipate it will generate some fun responses nonetheless.

For the record: Detail Man is no longer banned. The ban was rescinded almost immediately after it became known on the forum.

Rule 2: "Posts discussing moderator actions are not allowed and will be deleted."

Since you self-appointed yourself as forum policeman, how do you justify your repeated flouting of the rules?

I see absolutely nothing wrong from any point of view with pointing out that the information Gregm61 had on the ban against Detail Man was dated.

If you think such actions violate the rules, I think that, for consistency, you should file a complaint against the post by Simon Joinson a few days ago in which he reported that the ban on Detail Man had been rescinded. You find it here:

The totality of what Simon said in the link you just posted about this: "you do realize that the ban you're referring to was lifted before this thread even started?"

Note several things:

  • He is a moderator.
  • He refers obliquely to the ban under question (i.e. does not identify by name)

What you said is significantly different than this:

  • You are not a moderator, thus you are in clear and unambiguous violation of Rule #2
  • You refer directly to the ban under question (i.e. identify the username)
  • You add additional information about the timeframe of the ban being rescinded that is likely not true (for reference, in the "rules" page DPreview talks about standard ban timeframes being anywhere from 3 days to 30 days)

This kind of exchange, which disrupts an otherwise useful discussion, makes me yearn for the days when Ignore worked. Can't you do this in PMs?
