It is pointless. Thanks.

I have to say I'm really disappointed at this thread being locked just after someone pointed out what a bad look it was to pile on like this, so now the pile-on just stands uncontested

(I know this is going to be perceived as "taking sides" or whatever, but the thread, to me, was going in a very disturbing "welp, glad we've settled that" direction for what is a fairly ambiguous situation and post)

(also I'm sorry if this is the wrong thread, but when I click on "mod" it doesn't give me an option to email privately, it says that user is not in the database)

I mean, it's not uncontested - you contested it (and I'm glad you did).

Andrew Farrell, Thursday, 6 September 2018 21:02 (three months ago) Permalink

anyway, I don’t want this thread to turn into a re-litigation, I just couldn’t find a way to contact the mod

Honestly didn't seem like that testy a debate to me but whatever

yeah, locking the thread seems pretty heavy-handed

ok

princess of hell (BradNelson), Thursday, 6 September 2018 21:08 (three months ago) Permalink

sorry i suggested it, it just seemed that the argument that was about to happen was gonna suck, ymmv

princess of hell (BradNelson), Thursday, 6 September 2018 21:09 (three months ago) Permalink

it was also weird and uncomfortable and felt shitty bc it was about someone who posts here who wouldn't ever post in that particular thread

princess of hell (BradNelson), Thursday, 6 September 2018 21:12 (three months ago) Permalink

Tbc I don't mind that it was suggested, and I can certainly envision it getting bad

wayne trotsky (Simon H.), Thursday, 6 September 2018 21:13 (three months ago) Permalink

flamboyant goon tie otm in that thread. also locking otm.

Trϵϵship, Thursday, 6 September 2018 21:14 (three months ago) Permalink

agree that a lot of speculatiargument was likely to kick off and a temp lock is a sensible idea

also that both flambo and katherine were saying sensible things

▫◌▫ (sic), Thursday, 6 September 2018 21:15 (three months ago) Permalink

I also agree the thread should have been blocked, just, like, 50 posts ago

aloha darkness my old friend (katherine), Thursday, 6 September 2018 21:20 (three months ago) Permalink

mod here. i personally felt uncomfortable about much of the discussion in the thread throughout the day. the discussion was centered around the personal life of someone who many of us consider a friend. when multiple people asked for the thread to be locked, i took it as a reasonable request. i think it would be good to let this all cool off for a while.

did not mean to lock it at a particular point that silenced any views.

thought fgti's posts were good, but I also thought "stalker" might be taking it too far (though there could be things I don't know about the situation). I also don't think people were "piling on", but appreciate katherine resisting the ilx otm chorus (just because it isn't so interesting). Agree with Simon that things weren't so bad in there, though, and I think that this will probably be the place where the most thoughtful discussion on this would occur. so will be a shame if a cooling off period kills it.

I would like to see all today's posts deleted and the thread unlocked

But that's just me

I apologize that comparing an individual-who-I-felt-was-demonstrating-textbook-abusive-behaviour-and-unbearable-entitlement-over-the-body-and-mind-of-a-person-in-the-public-eye to the man who shot John Lennon was over the top

I instead offer a comparison to... the woman who broke into Keanu Reeves' house in 1996.

let's not turn this thread into that thread shall we

Paleo Weltschmerz (El Tomboto), Thursday, 6 September 2018 21:26 (three months ago) Permalink

xp yeah, I'm definitely sympathetic to that idea. and I understand why this would be something you'd feel strongly about. but at the same time, from the description of his own actions coming from this tumblr which I wish I'd never read, I feel that JD wouldn't want the comparisons for this individual to be quite so vivid. though I still think your read is basically otm.

for i, sock in enumerate (Sufjan Grafton), Thursday, 6 September 2018 21:31 (three months ago) Permalink

and clearly, you made some people rethink things, which seems like an overall positive result of those posts existing

for i, sock in enumerate (Sufjan Grafton), Thursday, 6 September 2018 21:34 (three months ago) Permalink

The part of fgti’s post that was otm wasn’t that—it was the stuff about how unnerving it was that the tumblr writer felt so comfortable twisting important concepts about power and abuse to his own ends when they really weren’t pertinent to the situation at hand
