Here is an answer to your question. "Because it's my mod and I, and only I, will determine whom I will allow to use it. If you don't like that answer, make your own."
You make screenshots, yeah? It would take a few minutes to mass download all 200+ of them and re-upload them to a file sharing site. Same applies to any mod on the nexus. The only thing you really control is someone's ability to comment on your work, which I already had no issue with. I called it petty because it's the equivalent of blowing raspberries and yelling "nan na nam na naaa naaa" at the person you've blocked
I figured. Decent of you to admit that. Still, having a gripe is quite cathartic, although sometimes it's better to not hit the 'Post' button.
If you read through some of the other threads about this topic, your view on mod authors blocking users might change. I don't see how it's bizarre or nonsensical even when you take into account the ability for a user to just create a new account. That still imposes a 'cost' on the user, although a relatively minor one, while also providing the mod author with some measure of control over interactions about their content.
I'm glad I'm not a betting man....
I appreciate how understanding you've been. Thanks.
I've been on the internet since the wild west days when you could say virtually whatever you want without consequences, so having abuse thrown at me is something I can handle, plus it's hard to take it seriously when odds are in your favour that it's from a moody teenager.
maybe don't be salty to a mod author or their work, and you won't get banned from the mod?
I wasn't the one giving the abuse. The author was being haughty and condescending to people to who didn't appreciate being tarred with the same brush as racists, so I posted "you're history" to wind him up. I guess it worked. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
