I'll admit I have been really rough on the group of contributors in the past due to my 'vision' of how I want the Oman Community Blog to turn out in the near future. But this is just a huge no-no for me; and I will not stand down from it.
As you may well remember, I reported a few days ago about how one of our own 'people' tell-taled on us and told the UAE Community Blog members that we were copying their idea. But that was only they knew themselves about it since our blog button had been there since the beginning of this community blog with the help of one of their members/moderators.
On that particular post, that certain person turned out with a spamming strategy that not only disgusted me but got to my nerves. And if there's one thing I hate more than anything - it's a spammer.
So I gave the green light to Amjad to delete his irriatating posts, his blog link from the sidebar, and anything else for that matter for one whole week to give the guy a reason to rethink what he is really doing.
Apparently, it got to one of the members that he was 'banned' and I had confirmed it and the reasons why. I won't go into much details.
Let there be no mockery that I take such issues very seriously. Anyone caught so, will face the same consequence. If you have a disagreement about such a matter, please post it in the appropriate manner.
This is a community blog - meaning we have to respect one another's rights of what we say herein, but that does not mean that our freedom of speech goes beyond the borders of rationality.
You wouldn't like someone farting in your face now would you? So what of a spammer.
