Well, if you noticed I haven't been on GameSpot in a while. The reason being I served a two day suspension. The reason? Posting the news story of the Xbox 360 controller that blatantly rips off the Wi-mote in the Wii board. Ok, I get that some people may thing this is "outside the discussion" of the Wii board. I understand that since, technically, it's not concerning the Wii but even so, I think this is still something Wii fans would like to hear. That's not the point. The point is the two days suspension is just ridiculous. Ok, if it is indeed out of the discussion, you lock the thread, you add a post that says "Post this somewhere else" and you move on. It wasn't like it was COMPLETELY outside of the topic of the board. It wasn't like I made a post like "I LIKE WAFFLES! Do you like waffles too?". I can see where the problem there is. But, I mean, jesus christ, a little harsh. No?
As for the actual suspension, I didn't really care. I've moved on to bigger and better things to do with my time, other than GameSpot. The thing that got me pissed off was the reasoning behind it. I know a lot of you are gonna say things like "Rules are rules, n00b!" So, I'm sorry if I found the whole thing a tad ridiculous. And this is nothing new with GameSpot. This site has, by far, the strictest rules of any gaming site I've seen. But, whatever, GameSpot. I'm sure Giant Bomb will understand.
