For a week, I kept being informed with "Suspended until Sun 10 Apr, 2016 01:31 pm for inappropriate." (See the attached screenshot)

Well, I welcomed the moderation, but not this English.

It should have been "for being inappropriate", not "for inappropriate."

No doubt, the moderator should keep in mind to improve his/her English.

Of course, the fact that the original culprit Setanta went unpunished reminds us of the situation that the enforcement, or the spirit of fair play, of the forum rules need be improved as well.

There may be several reasons for suspension, and "inappropriate" may just be the heading of the category.

Sorry that you were suspended for a week.

I believe it was mentioned in one of the recent threads about pending site changes that there are currently only two options when someone is suspended: "spam" and "inappropriate".

So (if I'm remembering that post correctly) any non-spam suspension will likely always say "inappropriate" under the current system.

I guess them hamsters forgot the word "behavior".

Is it possible that the programmer was not a native English speaker?
