As I told you a long ago, I DID read the forum rules, right after signing up: the one which talks about "excessive emoticons" doesn't specify a number, this rule is kind of flexible and open and it really depends on each moderator how they apply it; I'll give you a very specific example. One of the moderators at the Spanish forum usually allows much more emoticons than you do, especially when it comes to a long post. So I couldn't know that I was using more emoticons than I should, and of course I do understand everyone here has a life and you are not going to edit every single post, I didn't expect you to edit my posts, again I simply DIDN'T know I was doing it wrong, and I'd expect a moderator to let me know. You just locked the topic without giving me the chance to realize it and modify my posts, that's all I complained about (as for the quotings, that was indeed very silly of me and I don't know how I didn't realize it, but it wasn't meant to go against any rule, I just made a mistake and I apologized for it).
So you were being nice by not giving me a warning... should I thank you? Because there was no need to give me a warning, as you said yourself. You did gave me the warning afterwards (two warnings in a row actually), because I rated you with a negative after feeling personally ofended by a very rude reply of yours, which I didn't think I deserved. I believe that despite being a moderator or a current user, we are all memebers and have the same rights here.
By the way, I don't know how a potential referral or any other person here would notice that a member has received a warning, unless someone talked about it in public... and anyway I myself talked about my warnings on the forum, so you can see how much I worry about my potential reputation. But don't you worry either, there won't be a next time, as I've never had a problem with abiding by the rules. And believe me, I've got a million things to be more concerned about than getting a warning, or two, for that matter. What I earn here I earn it with my own work, I don't depend on anyone else's. And as for people that view the posts, I'm not ashamed of anything, so let them think what they want to, they will anyway.
All that said, I thank you because nowadays I think you made me a favour by closing that topic right at the time you did, for a variety of reasons.
I'm not willing to reopen old issues nor am I going to discuss this over again, as it passed a long ago, in a very different stage of my life, and I really don't wish to waste any other minute on it; but I don't like it when only a half truth is told.
