Starting a thread saying i hope this person dies in a car crash, maybe ban worthy. But responding in a stupid thread about a fender bender, saying i wish he died in it, doesn't seem that bad to me. Everyone knew it was just a joke.
You're free to believe whatever you wish regarding the existence of moderator bias... however, the conclusion you reach very well could be (probably is) incorrect. The reason some posts receive moderator attention while other (perhaps similar) posts might not could be as simple as: one of the posts was reported; the other one wasn't. This is particularly true of posts in WRP.
There is a substantial precedent here on the Mane for banning those who wish death on others, whether it's suggesting that another poster commit suicide or expressing a wish to see thousands of rival fans killed or injured in a tragedy at their stadium or for a politician to have expired rather than to "just" be injured in a traffic mishap. If posters have been banned for it in the past, then it's reasonable to expect that a ban will result any time it happens.
