1) there's a nice 2 point infraction for Being an ass in the newbie tank, if you are not part of the solution you are part of the problem.; nobody's forcing you to read or post in the newbie tank. Mods like The Saint do a fine job of monitoring threads. If you really feel something is wrong with a thread use the report button.
2) disrespecting mods and staff is bona fide trolling. Do it again and I'll gladly give you a vacation from ASC (the person concerned knows whom he is/what he did).
