Just checked this (it did seem strange) and the answer is that you got done for necromancy.

Looking for it, I see now that it was an old thread.  I use Who's Online to find threads to post in so that happens sometimes.  HOWEVER, this was not simply a "bump" to the thread as known necrophiliacs like Robert Stark did.  I continued the conversation.

I'm not necessarily defending the reporting or the punishment, just informing you of the reason. You can appeal against the points if you aren't happy, of course, and I'd suggest you do that.

The legitimate complaints about Joe have sent the moderators into a state of panic. They feel the need to cement their authority. You were made into an example, King. These people don't retreat; they bite back.

bumping an ancient years-old thread without explanation will get you infracted.

Obviously starting a ridiculous thread ignoring all context was the right way to appeal the decision instead of simply asking me.  Since you're saying you were bumping an ancient thread by mistake, I've decided to remove the points and also prescribe you three chill pills in their place.

You should be able to occasionally bump old threads if you feel you can add to the discussion without being hit by death points.

As long as you explain why you're bumping it, it's fine.

"I know this is an old thread, but..."

I've  had to deal with a surge of necromancy recently as well (not that this is visible to you guys, as I undo it).

Sorry, Lunar, I'm not a very observant fellow when it comes to mod politics and did not know it was you who gave me the infraction.  I also did not read the part of the PM that said "appeal by responding."

I don't really care about the infraction points and I support the moderators actions for the most part.  This delete was just so absurd to me the moment I received that I felt I had to post it.

Posting in an old thread is not bumping.  Bumping is posting the inane post count padding "bump" without explanation.  The topic looked interesting to me when I saw it on Who's Online.  Would you have preferred I started a new thread about confederate flag burning?

That goes against existing protocol in my opinion.

I would have preferred you said "I know this is an old thread, but I found this discussion to be worthwhile" or something along that line.

If you're not able to do that, starting a new thread would be best.

I can understand some disagreements, but we've had to deal with annoying necromancy problems in the past and I've personally have had to deal with some in recent days. We haven't talked about it recently, but I've always encouraged stating a reason for bumping ancient threads as a way to avoid confusion.

As of right now, every infraction on the Individual Politics board and United States General is my doing, unless an errant mod accidentally infracts my stuff or Nym intervenes.

I'm rather busy these days and I've been doing my best over the last month or so to urge Dave to appoint someone new in my place.

Yeah, some of them just bite anything in sight and don't care whether they've ever been bitten themselves. Smiley

Man, I posted in a three-month old thread yesterday to avoid cluttering the forum up with duplicates. Hope I don't get infracted.

Mr Moderate at 54/10 is a total joke, he is a horror.

Shouldn't be.  The first standard I use is whether you get the blurb saying that the thread is over 120 days old and asking whether you really wanted to post that.  If you don't post in an older than 120 day thread, no chance of infraction for zombieitis.  Even then, for me, it depends.
