Self-banning: what is ilx policy on this?

Message Bookmarked

If you really don't have the self-control to stop posting, can't you just scramble your password so you can't login? Really not down with "please ban me" requests.

Ok, how would I do that? Sorry about the thing you're not down with - I have seen a bunch of decent people use that avenue.

Just change your password to a random jumble of letters that you won't remember?

Because apparently ENBB was given the go-ahead like magic, but I had to get grumped at and given a wack alternative solution.

Matt DC's policy on self-bans has certainly evolved since april.

bottom line basically is forks should resign over this farrago

I loled at timeboom too, darragh.

also matt_DC is the mr miyagi of mods and needs you to show him that you're gonna work for it

just as i'm sure there's a best chillwave band

anyway self-banning is pretty stupid imo, just don't post ifyou don't want to post

my vote for ilx policy i guess is 'who cares'

if only it were that easy

Yeah, it's not that easy and if it were, a shit-ton of people wouldn't have elected to be self-banned.

i tried self ban once but it made it weirdly harder not to look at ilx whereas now i just try to take a couple of days a week off every week seems to work ok

really tho i think trolling to get the 51 is the answer here

scrambled my password once, done the job

I scrambled my password and it made it so I can't log back into ilx using explorer at work unless I delete all my cookies or something, which means I'll have to contact some people who I'd rather not contact about re-logging me in to LexisNexis.

I've gotten around this by downloading Firefox specifically to use ilx at work, which is fine because i hear it's a better browser. I should just transfer all my important bookmarks to there anyway.

itt post about all the ways you've successfully stopped yourself from posting itt

(Chris Isaak Cover) (schlump), Sunday, 28 August 2011 23:02 (seven years ago) Permalink

I once went ten months with only eight posts.

The trick, I learned, is that when you read something and feel the need to post, you don't.

people talk about not-posting to this worthless hole where people wring hands about "The Weeknd" and big-up "Girl Wut Slugs" like its quitting smoking

welll i guess were not all lucky enough to have our doctors forcibly prescribing us the patch every couple of months like some ppl

longest i have gone w/out posting to ilx since i started = 4 months
longest i have gone w/out a cigarette since i started smoking = 20 hrs

sarahel, Monday, 29 August 2011 01:59 (seven years ago) Permalink

I don't begrudge or judge people who self-ban but I don't get it myself. I've had a few "fuck this shit I'm leaving ilx" moments but I just stop posting quietly. idk, maybe I just have a super capacity for self-discipline.

if someone can develop a sb system that will keep me from smoking for 30 days, i would probably be a much healthier person

I have self-banned by not posting and self-banned by requesting to be actually banned from the site. I relied on the latter when part of the reason for my self ban was that I was about to embark on some deadline-heavy, stressful, boring bullshit at work and I knew there was no way I could just not post because ILX, for better or worse, is often the antidote to my stressful, boring job.

i self-ban on a regular basis thru the medium of "disliking most of ilx". ironically ur not included: if u only had some erudite, interesting, but entirely rong opinions on rap then one of us would be the other's evil twin. this is something u just have to face up to.

zvookster, Monday, 29 August 2011 17:54 (seven years ago) Permalink

lol
i gave up on music c. 1999 -- i like rap, but it was better when based on huge effing samples imo

The ENBB thing is nothing to do with me, I still think people who self-request bans should get one self-control but that's just me and not official mod policy.

Matt DC, Tuesday, 30 August 2011 14:18 (seven years ago) Permalink

Basically as long as ur not being a jerk about it or waffling, i am glad to ban u, just ilxmail me.

my official mod policy on everything re: ilx self-banning is people should stop giving a shit what other people do all the time

let me save you some time - yes, you are probably anti-semantic (jjjusten), Tuesday, 6 September 2011 03:59 (seven years ago) Permalink

I agree, tbh I found the hand-wriging when E asked for one to be more than a little ... it made me squirm slightly.

iirc the hand-wringing had nothing to do with E - everyone likes her
