3 Months later, still abuse from Moderators....

I have been offline on JR Craft for nearly three months, and just yesterday I come back for the first time in a while. Today around 8:30 AM I decide to log-in and go mess around with my sand home I just built. I decided to go explore outside my home. Just then I saw some cobblestone that I have never seen before, so I automatically knew that where there was cobble, there were people. I followed it and saw light, so I went towards the light. I found a small semi-abandoned looking town. I decided to claim the area around it as Mayor to overwatch the small town. But apparently in the eyes of Staff Member Moorhead, that's not allowed? Now in the past I remember making a statement that "IF" and "When" a(n) person want's to claim an area, he/she must first mark of section off the area. Now currently as of now I did not claim anything, but I was just "Stating" that that was my notation of will. Now apparently since I was not claiming any item at the time, I was only "Stating" this, this is a infringement of my freedom of speech. Now past this time, I was talking to the Moderator Moorhead, and he/she said to me that he/she had the right to Moderate what actions I could do In-Game, as in claiming areas. Now I was not "Currently" claiming the area, but I was to have my freedom of speech to state why I think I could claim the area. He/she said no you don't and Froze my character. At this point he/she took a pickaxe and killed my character while setting off multiple lightning strikes in the air. I came to a point where I had to exit the game because I could not spawn. I re-join the game and I tell moor, "you will be hearing from me again" Moor then tells me I cannot "Argue" with staff, and that he has the right to "Kill anyone that is annoying the s*** out of him"

All I wan't is for this abuse to be resolved, I have found this an annoyance in the past, and this is not something you wan't going on in the future with staff members like this treating new members of JR. Craft like s***. Thank you for your time.

(If this is in the wrong section please move this, thank you)

World Guarding a whole town is not allowed. It is up to the people in that town to world guard their homes. Just because you come across a town, you cannot claim it and call yourself mayor. If there is a grief, then report it and an Admin or Moderator will resolve it ASAP.

Moorhead told you that you could not do that . You claim that you were only stating it and therefore it is an infringement of your freedom of speech. You may have Freedom of Speech, but that does not protect you from the consequences following that said statement eg. Racism, Abuse, cursing and arguing with staff can get you banned.

Moorhead saw what you said and did his job by telling you that you could not do that. You proceeded to argue with him, which is against our rules. I don't really blame him for freezing you and killing you because you were getting on his nerves. You then log back in and you threaten Moorhead by saying "You will be hearing from me again".

Your "Freedom of Speech" could have prevented this by explaining the situation or you could have been like most and said, "ok, I won't claim the area". Instead your "Freedom of Speech" lead you to argue with Moorhead and threaten him when he was obviously in the right, which breaks 2 of our rules. You then leave and post a blog which does not help you in any way. If there was abuse screenshot it and send it privately to an admin, don't just complain!

I was there when this happened... well I wasn't like LOOKING at the village you claimed, but if there was an issue with you stating that you'd claim it, I assume it wasn't an NPC village. At first, moor was just informing you of the rules. If you didn't build it, you shouldn't claim it as your own, no matter how "abandoned" it seems. And I'm not going to speak for anyone on this, but the way you were stating your intentions made it sound like you've already claimed it. Multiple times you said "I am the mayor of this place" Not "I wish to be the mayor" or "May I claim this?" with how you worded things, it was easy to mis-interpret what you intended. As Jack said, this really wasn't really abuse so much as it was moor dealing with what you did or intended to do. ALSO as Jack said, you got on the bad side of moor. He nor anyone appreciates sarcastic responses to everything... I'm sorry for any misunderstanding that there may have been.

P.S. You picked the perfect section. This kind of thing belongs in a blog

I was not to actually claim any area of the town, now apparently some people take things the wrong way without hearing out both sides of the argument to the best extent possible.

Every rule has a weak point in which it will eventually break, some rules are meant to be broken. Well, goodbye guys at JR. Good knowing you all for the last 2 years!

Rexx I am sorry you want to leave. I know you have been away for a while. As US citizen you can enjoy freedom of speech ...as a JR citizen you don't get to argue with staff. Most know not to argue with Moorhead to begin with. I believe he could have handled that another way ....but when your on this end of arguments all day ...you will find the best end for you. I hope you will reconsider leaving JR. I am glad to see you made it back from over seas safely.
