Not one person was for it, except you. Oh, and you might wanna read the logs when you left - no one understood why you did it.

That's exactly what I was saying. Since Monkey was the only one "bothered" by Hoax, he should've silenced him in his player police menu.

Maybe in your mind I'm annoying, but coincidently, no one else thinks this way. Have you realized why you might not be popular? How many times have you suspended a new player into spec mode because they weren't grinding the first round they got there. You tell them to watch, then they don't understand why they can't play. Then 2-3 rounds go bye and they're still in spec mode, wondering why they can't play. Then, they just leave.
IMO, you're not promoting freshness to the game of fort. How did you learn to play Monkey? You can sit in spec mode and watch for hours and hours. That doesn't mean you're going to be able to replicate that in-game.

No it's not. For players to try to provoke mods is not acceptable. I have never polled a mod/admin and expect others to do the same.
The entire point of being a moderator is that you can moderator play activity from a non-bias point of view. However, if a moderator thinks that he's above the players, then there's where the problem lies.
As long as players don't type /players, it shouldn't be obvious who the moderators are. Therefore, if playerA feels that playerB is doing something that deserves a poll kick, playerA has every right to start a poll kick, regardless of who playerB is, even if he is the server owner, Z-Man, or even playerA (himself).
If you really want to think that way Monkey, you should have just kept the poll going and seen what would've happened. Then, if it got rejected (which I think it did), you should've poll kicked me. If the rest of the players agreed with you (I highly doubt that), then I would've been auto kicked.
The fact of the matter is that you admin kicked me for absolutely no good reason.
