PM me with reason(s) why and I'll certainly consider it.
For transparency given that you have stated your reasons for the warning I am happy to answer you here.
I suggest that you actually read the thread instead of simply acting on Dion running to you with his latest flimsy outrage

You where simply and utterly incorrect in your reason for giving me a ban warning. If you can not see it then I do not wish to engage with you and I will simply digest the warning

The exact text of your Warning was as follows:
geordiecolin,

Your actions in this message (Highest Multiplier Battle with Videoslots and Pragmatic Play) are not appropriate:
So get on to doing a long required comp update. One of you that is not Dion
You know the drill: harassing and/or dissing the moderators is not acceptable. Sooner or later this kind of crap is going to get you booted to the curb.

- Max
AFAICT the Warning was spot on, and I believe you proved that with your very next post (which was moved here to start this thread). If you have reasons to believe otherwise you can explain them to me in a PM, or not. Obviously your choice and you chose to say nothing. C'est la vie.

I would much rather address you publicly because via PM both you and Dion make claims that you can not back up no matter how many times I request that you provide proof. ( In fact Dion stays quiet despite those claims coming from him)- utterly mute while sitting in on the PM
This is your reasoning for the threat of a forum ban
" The Warning was for you singling Dion out as not being welcome (by you) to update a thread when he has been tasked to do exactly that. It's not your place to say what he should and should not do on the forums. "

You clearly did not read the thread but instead simply acted on Dion's flimsy say so once again.

I did not claim that Dion was not welcome to post an update. I simply requested an update given that other long running comps are given one. I then responded to his replies to me respectfully
Very ban worthy,huh?
I request that you retracting that threat

Suggesting that we make false claims against you, in public or private, is not going to win you any favours.
I said discuss via PM and I meant it.
The reasons for the ban threat were clear and precise. No retraction required IMO.

I can provide every single word of those claims made against me by you of me constantly targeting Dion and the fact that you could not provide any proof of them ( While Dion sat in on the PM and stayed mute)
And anyone can see that the reason for the warning that you gave is utter fabrication

First of all "you could not provide any proof" is a deliberate distortion of what transpired. In truth what I said that it was not my obligation to prove anything to you. There is a difference. Also, the subject of your warning there was that harassing dionysus had to stop. If you never did such a thing, as you have repeatedly claimed, then there should be no problem, then or now. Obviously that's not the case though which is why we are where we are.

"anyone can see that the reason for the warning that you gave is utter bollix". As mentioned elsewhere, "anyone" is not part of the decision making process here. If they think the reasons are bogus and you do end up getting banned they are free to contact Admin with their objections. Until then this is between you and I, please and thank you.

Dion was in on the PM from the beginning and did not utter a word despite being asked at least 5 times to give ANY examples. I would have to re read the transcript of the full convo.
Not your obligation but surely it was Dions obligation?
Why did Dion not get pulled up for making false claims? Instead you are utterly bias in maintaining such claims as correct otherwise you would not still be making them
No justification for you and Dion targeting me.
This is Casinomeisters justice folks. Advocate of fair play

No, this is you trying to distort the facts in order to play the victim.

"Justice"? You are still here aren't you? You're still posting aren't you? Your rights and privileges here haven't been restricted in any way, correct? Obviously the answer to all of those is "yes" so save your little charade of victim-hood SVP.

As to dionysus in that conversation I told you there and I'll tell you again, I specifically asked him to remain silent. And so he did. You don't have the right to call out a moderator to prove himself to you, then or now. You do have the right to submit a Report against anyone at anytime, including dionysus, me or whomever, and let the Administration of this site make the decisions that are theirs to make.

Want me to post the full PM? I promis to edit out the Dion profile picture part :)

To what end? I said this should be discussed as a PM. Your insistence to do it in public is a blatant disregard of that so you better have a damn good reason for bringing that previous PM up here. What is the reason? Specifically.

Specifically I am defending myself against your and Dion's bias and unfair treatment of me like anyone else who is not a sheep would do.
Edit. If you wish to deal with issues via PM then I suggest that you be a little bit fairer in how you deal with people in those PM's

"Unfair" how exactly? In what way have you suffered at our hands? Give one instance of where you were mistreated or even inconvenienced in any significant way. And a Warning doesn't count because (a) that is an Administrative issue that goes well beyond either of us, and (b) a Warning is just that, a cautionary message. If nothing comes of it, and nothing has, then suck it up.

You know the drill: Report it. Easy to moan about it but if you refuse to use the services on offer to you then that's your business. Trying to drag this out onto the forums is not an option open to you.

I gave you the opt out of this thread in post 3 so it is a little incongruous of you to blame me for this dragging on
Edit. I will leave you with the last word as always

I will refer you to post#3 because this could go on and on and on and on and on without getting anywhere
As stated above, a Warning is not abuse, it is an administrative option that is made available to moderators to allow them to manage the site at Bryan's behest.

Don't like a Warning? Report it, with special attention to Bryan, and he'll deal with it in due course.

Don't like Warnings in general? Well too bad because that's part of the way forums are managed, including this one. It's our right to manage the site as we feel is necessary and Warnings are part of that. None of this is news to you I'm sure.

I think you are a little confused. I work here and I'm doing my job. You've made yourself part of that job and so I'm dealing with you. I would think that by this time that should be painfully obvious.

I love you Max but unfortunately I have other things to do :(
