an open letter to the mods from Whiney G. Weingarten

Dear mods,

I understand and respect your decision to ban me for a while. I was unduly cranky to a few posters for a while, engaged in some trolling (sorry, Dan!) and was more than a little annoying with the auto-embed YouTubes, amusing no one but myself (and maybe the rev). I began atoning for my sins a few weeks before i was 51'd (see the hug it out with whiney thread) was was hoping to turn around my posting style to the more "keep-it-posi" vibe ON MY OWN. Needless to say the time off is probably a good thing, and I don't blame you guys for getting rid of me.

However--I was wondering if I can be allowed to post in the F2k thread. It seems weird that there's a thread where people are talking about my writing, and I can't be around to participate.

If you can't tweak the system to allow me to post in one thread, can you reinstate me fully and I'll promise NOT to post in ANY OTHER THREADS until the mods say OK? Think of this as work-release program. I get to leave jail to go to one place that's work-related and i promise not to run off and hang with my buddies.

the most likely outcome of this is either:

- ppl will start posting/crossposting comments to Idolator, as I suggested on the F2K thread
- J0rdan or another kind proxy will post Whiney's responses on that thread when appropriate

Yeah, don't see this happening. In what way would it be fair to other people who've just sucked up their SBs?
(Whiney: semantics aside, mods didn't decide to ban you, you were SBd). If you get a friendly poster to post for you on the thread those posts can stay, but otherwise, month's a month.

from whiney:

I 100% feel like I was temp-banned for annoying Dan Perry and nothing else. I have learned absolutely nothing from this experience and when I return in 27 days, I will continue to post as I always have, even--and especially--if that includes lightly poking fun of the terrible mod decisions of Dan and jjjusten. If they're too thin-skinned to handle that, they can continue temp-banning me and everyone until ILX is the boring cuddle party they so clearly desire.

plz point out where i was wrongly characterizing whiney in this quote

I'd like to point out, just for the point of talking you understand, that as far as I can tell Whiney made like 3 posts about mods/rape/unperson's screen-name. Calling it "going on for the last week" isn't exactly accurate, I don't think.

j0rdan that might have been a bad system game tho because this is whineys 2nd sb which is supposed to be a 60 day ban.

Well actually what Sarahel did was revive this thread to say the temp ban was harsh and THEN go and read the Rollins thread to find out why he was tempbanned. Disingenuous as hell.

― Matt DC, Thursday, November 4, 2010 3:15 AM (8 hours ago)

I beg your pardon, what? This came up on a different thread, and Dan had said that basically Whiney got banned for pissing him off. I understand the increasing length of temp ban thing that's built into the system, and that that's why it was 27 days, but not overriding the system, which Dan has done in the past, seemed harsh.

it's just kinda hard to have a rational discussion with mods about this kinda thing, when it feels like, as a poster, when you do bring stuff up, you get accused of "meta snark" or "concern trolling" or have your motives questioned. It's kinda the equivalent of when posters accuse mods of conspiring or all posting from the same slumber party.

an open letter to the mods from Whiney G. Weingarten

my "i'm only gonna come back stronger" post was made when I was under the assumption that I was banned for 27 days over pointless, arbitrary dan perry beef. If it was a three-day comedy ban, I would have honestly laughed along with Dan about the whole thing. However I will gladly take my democratically decided 30-day 51-suggban sentence like a man, as it is clearly what the people want.

Also, sincere, non-snarky apology to Abbbott or if anyone who got legitimately offended by my 2 or 3 posts re mod/rape/phil. It was an admittedly dickish way to point out what I felt was a hypocrisy of mod action being "ruin the best thread on 77" instead of "confront a dude about his rapey display name."

That is all.
