Elvis, you're obviously a very passionate fan and I might even add very knowledgeable. Your posts are usually quite enjoyable to read.
However, your constant "mini modding" is beyond over the line. While we're giving each other recommendations as you put it. How about the next time you feel like reminding someone of the rules you instead pm a mod with your concerns and let them enforce the site rules as that is what they are here for. They will be more than happy to take action if they deem it necessary.
I have seen people call you out for "mini modding" many times and I personally think everyone's experience here (yours included) would be more enjoyable if you put an end to your mini modding as quite frankly it's annoying and makes you look like a heavy.
I agree, the mini modding is annoying as hell. There are actually mods whos job it is to do those things. If you want to do that, apply for the job. Otherwise you just look like youve got an inferiority complex, either that or youre just so natually anal that youd be impossible to live with.
The OP's thread is fine, cut him some slack. Theres just a lot of excited young canuck fans on the board, and theres bound to be holes in the arguments some time. If its too much, im sure the ACTUAL mods can step in and lock when necessary.
