I’m reporting @tchrist for the abuse of his mod power, for the following reasons:
- Deleting comments that were helpful but didn’t serve his question well:
All the comments from different users above were deleted. I want to believe this was a simple “decluttering” but he/she did not move the comments to chat like they had previously done before. He said “I did the move to chat, I don’t know what you’re talking about” in the transcript but as you can see the above comments were never transferred (I was referring to the comments above and that is the reply they gave after I decided to bring it up to them). A link to view [image 1] is there.
- Deleting comments of an instance where I reported said moderator for rude behaviour and inappropriate comments and inferences about my “grammar”
Unfortunately I didn’t manage to screenshot this :(
I mentioned in chat that I noticed that he deleted these messages and he replied in a rather repetitive-spam like manner and decided to look at all my chat history, answers, questions or comments to compile a list of “my mistakes”
In the chat telling me to be consistent with BrE and AmE spellings but later saying “defense” and “offence” in the same sitting. I then proceeded to say “some people are hypocrites” (which was deleted) and I was unfairly banned on chat for 29 days - when said moderator was the one sending me spam like messages.
This does not seem to me the appropriate behaviour of a moderator.
I have linked the following transcript here.
It is important to note several things:
I did not say tchrist caused my ban but I had stated that said moderator was showing digressive actions towards me and I was unfairly banned for what initially said 29 days and was changed to 24 hours at around the time I posted this question. A link to [image 2] is there. It has been questioned that this could be a bug but I have contacted SE and they will provide more information << I will leave this matter at that.
A finding: It seems that a moderator can ban a user for any set amount of time. It doesn't show that there is an automatic 30 min suspension when a user is suspended, but at the discretion of a moderator. If you think a 29 day suspension is implausible, how about a 3250 year suspension (A guide to moderating chat)?
I'm editing my answer for the sake of cleanness. The images of screenshots can still be found if needed as e.g. [image 1]
I'm also editing and putting the images in links since, people have seem to forgot that the comments (whether they were fairly deleted or not; we cannot know as we cannot read the mind of a moderator and whether those deletions were biased or not. For example, if they were decluttering why delete all of them and not keep the useful ones? Those comments in [image 1] are just part of the comments deleted) and that was not the only act of regression. In effect:
What happens if a user violated any of the Be nice policies in regards to the reasons I'm reporting said moderator? They could potentially be suspended or banned. But if a moderator violated these actions, it seems there is no recourse for them.
