You've now got "unlock my thread" stuck in my head to the tune of "unbreak my heart".

I mean much as I hate to deprive ILX of another opportunity to reminisce about Luna or Chaki or whoever this thread feels like unnecessary meta and shitstirring.

i know this is it what you THOUGHT i intended the thread to be, but it's not--in any case the area i'm interested is pre-2007 and ESPECIALLY pre-2005. i wanna learn about how people zinged & accused each other of racism in 2001

dear flopson,

may i recommend the ilx search function, perhaps with the search term "shout for the moderator". in this way you can satisfy your curiosity without shit-stirring, which I am sure is all that you want to do.

sarahell, Friday, 3 February 2012 21:33 (eight years ago) link

seriously, MattDC, you are like the most paranoid of creepy intent mod. A couple years back, I remember you calling for me to banned because I posted about knowing another ILXor's street name, and that I was super-creepy for that, when, the ILXor in question is someone I'm IRL friends with who had invited me to his housewarming party.

And this kinda dovetails with that name etiquette thread ... some ilxors are personal friends with other ilxors, and they naturally assume a certain familiarity with those people.

anyway, flopson is a good poster ime - though that's mainly from the rolling punk/underground thread. i'm sure his intentions aren't shit-stirring, so why assume that they are? if someone starts stirring shit on his thread, then deal with it as it happens, instead of treating us like socially-deficient 12 year olds.

If there ain't Baby!" said Flopson, appearing to think it most surprising. "Make haste up, Millers."

Millers, who was the other nurse, retired into the house, and by degrees the child's wailing was hushed and stopped, as if it were a young ventriloquist with something in its mouth. Mrs. Pocket read all the time, and I was curious to know what the book could be.

We were waiting, I supposed, for Mr. Pocket to come out to us; at any rate we waited there, and so I had an opportunity of observing the remarkable family phenomenon that whenever any of the children strayed near Mrs. Pocket in their play, they always tripped themselves up and tumbled over her,--always very much to her momentary astonishment, and their own more enduring lamentation. I was at a loss to account for this surprising circumstance, and could not help giving my mind to speculations about it, until by and by Millers came down with the baby, which baby was handed to Flopson, which Flopson was handing it to Mrs. Pocket, when she too went fairly head foremost over Mrs. Pocket, baby and all, and was caught by Herbert and myself.

"Gracious me, Flopson!" said Mrs. Pocket, looking off her book for a moment, "everybody's tumbling!"

"Gracious you, indeed, Mum!" returned Flopson, very red in the face; "what have you got there?"

"I got here, Flopson?" asked Mrs. Pocket.

"Why, if it ain't your footstool!" cried Flopson. "And if you keep it under your skirts like that, who's to help tumbling? Here! Take the baby, Mum, and give me your book."

Yeah Flopson I have no personal issue with you at all, it's just that these sorts of meta threads where old fights are stirred up for no real reason have always led to trouble. Not gonna happen, sorry.

Matt DC, Saturday, 4 February 2012 14:08 (eight years ago) link

Flopsy, there are a bunch of old threads called variations of things like Shout for the Moderator. That is how I schooled myself on how old ilx was so meeeeeaaaan.

seriously, MattDC, you are like the most paranoid of creepy intent mod. A couple years back, I remember you calling for me to banned because I posted about knowing another ILXor's street name, and that I was super-creepy for that, when, the ILXor in question is someone I'm IRL friends with who had invited me to his housewarming party.

As unfortunately I do not have a handy and extensive database of ancient message board beefs I don't actually remember whether or not I called for you to be banned (and if I did it probably wasn't permanent) but I do remember you posted another poster's real-life street name on ILX, which is a stupid thing to do even if it isn't actively malicious or creepy, so a deletion and a "cut it out" seemed like the sensible thing to do under the circumstances.

Also I'm sure you know full well the difference between shit-stirring and being creepy. Sorry to Flopson for interpreting his thread as the latter if it wasn't, I'm willing to give you the benefit of the doubt. It's probably not a good idea to unlock it though, most of those old clusterfucks are just pure lols but some surround things that are still quite sensitive with some people who are still around, and it's generally better to just avoid raking those up again for no reason.

And while researching historical message board fites is probably not the most exciting or worthwhile use of anyone's time, searching 'Shout for the Moderator' will probably furnish you with enough of them without having to compile them into a thread. Or you could, I dunno, go out and do something interesting.
