It would seem that the time out has been used heavily and inconsistently.
It also would seem that if you question moderation or mods you get banned. (Silverback, God rest his soul)
Recently, we (mostly Fok) have been using it more often because people seem to be getting out of hand. We cannot be everywhere all the time, so we do what we think is correct about what we do see, and hope that others who are being rude to each others, etc., will consider it a warning and keep themselves in line better. As for Silverback, I was the one he was going after, Fok (I think) was the one who banned him, and most of the mods agreed that he was primarily there to troll and derail discussions. SField was being pretty abusive in that thread and it seemed totally unwarranted to me, esp. considering the thread. I guess I'm more likely to lean to the side of a ban/temp ban when pretty much all I see from someone is negativity.
