(Mini Rant) Mods again, questionable rules and games that are not fun.

Small rant here. Firstly, let's get the topic of moderators on online communities out of the way first. This is something I found out at TechPowerUp and has been reinforced many times since then, when I try to participate in online communities. (Though some of the escalation is on me in most accounts, I acknowledge that. Regardless, the point I am trying to make in this post about Moderators is that in many cases they 'stretch' the definition of forum rules in order to exert their power over you. Most of these moderators are likely males in the 20-40 age-range who have insecurities in real life, or simple like to feel all-powerful. This is human nature, if you oppose them, they will bend rule definitions to ban/warn you and exert their power.

The next point is questionable rules in a game that is... simply not fun. You probably know what I'm talking about. Of course, it is War Thunder. I have come to the conclusion that I do not like this game, it is not fun and I do not enjoy it in competitive mode (Custom battles without the economic grind can be OK). The funny thing, though, is rule 1.1.7:

The need to have this rule on the forums is quite amusing, I think I'll leave it to your imagination as to why that's in there.

As for my post;

Read it and decide for yourself. I don't think it needs an explanation. Of course, War Thunder is a significant source of negative emotions for me lately, and as such, needs to be purged from my life.
