Someone, more than likely a sheriff like yourself, maybe not you, reported our posting which triggered several emails from admin. In those emails it was never explained why or what we said was wrong. Fiverr customer service is scripted, they only answer questions based on the script they can use to answer. Otherwise, they don't answer. It had nothing to do with spamming which we have never do
Look, you dragged up my post from Sept. 27. You confused me with yet another whining rant about yourself. I’m having to guess at why you picked a thread on spamming to air your own laundry again.

If I think a serious rule is being broken in the forums, I report it to other volunteers who have more forum rights than I do. Neither I or those forum volunteers can remove a level badge. I very serously do not know of any time a forum comment has resulted in a badge removal for anyone on Fiverr.
If a moderator like me or other user reads the forum, clicks on a profile and then sees ToS violations, we don’t have direct access to Fiver teams that handle that. We can submit tickets. CS doesn’t care if I’m a moderator or a movie star. CS is slow and sometimes they decide I’m wrong and they tell me they aren’t going to act on my ticket. All your posts about being the victim of level loss due to a forum comment just don’t hold water. You either violated the ToS outside of the forum or someone on staff otherwise had an issue with you and I can’t help you.

I hope the forum continues to improve. I’m very far from perfect but I really, really try to make the forum better. The forum is what we all make it. I don’t know what baggage you mean. I know you’ve made accusations against some sellers, so maybe you want them gone, or me, or maybe you just want it to be you talking to yourself, but feel free to clarify so at least your suggestion is understood.
edume said: In our opinion, comments on this forum should be moderated, if not relevant to the topic, the comment should be removed.
Moderators are not encouraged to censor, so there are moderation limits since not all rules are black and white. If all topic-irrelevant comments were removed, we would lose some useless things and some funny tangents and some whole posts, like yours in threads on other topics. My intended topic here was about buying from spammers, not edume’s umpteenth rant. However, you seem to really need to say this stuff, maybe it’s therapeutic, so have at it while you can.
