Before anyone freaks out and complains, I deleted the "calling a dude out by their real name when shit gets heated" thread on ILTMI.

thread was not a problem per se, but like 50 ungoogleproofed ilxor names on one thread is just not going to be able to happen. sorry dudes.

obv you can still freak out and complain, i just didnt want it to get directed at the ILTMI mods. and admin logging still appears to be off on that board which im going to change if i can figure out how to do it w/o breaking ilx in the process. which is why this is here. ok then.

HOT DISH THYME MACHINE (jjjusten), Thursday, 8 April 2010 23:28 (eight years ago) Permalink

dude, why not just move it to 77 ffs

lllljjjj (acoleuthic), Thursday, 8 April 2010 23:29 (eight years ago) Permalink

or deindex the thread! it was already deindexed iirc

lllljjjj (acoleuthic), Thursday, 8 April 2010 23:30 (eight years ago) Permalink

yeah i thought about that but the no meta on 77 thing makes that a no go as well so ??? xpost

HOT DISH THYME MACHINE (jjjusten), Thursday, 8 April 2010 23:30 (eight years ago) Permalink

no meta on 77??? oh wait yeah, no meta involving non-77-ers

maintain the deindex function was the way to go here - did you check to see whether it was indexed? or merely worried about ilxors using the real names for ill?

abt the thread i mean

zvookster, Thursday, 8 April 2010 23:58 (eight years ago) Permalink

several peeps on the thread aren't around anymore to complain, and mods are kind of supposed to fix things like real names before people have to complain

slightly overzealous imo but w/e, deindexing + maybe locking shd have been the way

after recent ilx irl violation dramas of this week i dont think this was really all that over the top tbh.

HOT DISH THYME MACHINE (jjjusten), Friday, 9 April 2010 00:07 (eight years ago) Permalink

i said 'slightly'! also that irl violation drama wasn't caused by ungoogleproofed government name so much as an impish sense of humour

it's not a huge deal -- i mean, if we really want to start the thread back up then we can do it on 1p3 or something & just googleproof the posts

goon with the wind (J0rdan S.), Friday, 9 April 2010 00:10 (eight years ago) Permalink

was a hilarious thread tho :-/

goon with the wind (J0rdan S.), Friday, 9 April 2010 00:10 (eight years ago) Permalink

idk lj, i would guess that a lot of ilx regulars would rather not get their real names associated with their screennames this week because they arent down with taking calls for you in the middle of the night

HOT DISH THYME MACHINE (jjjusten), Friday, 9 April 2010 00:11 (eight years ago) Permalink

if they're not down with it, then rat on the caller and get him/her banned (actually, please don't do this)

am still waiting for my own prank call but yeah maybe it's better if names aren't known. so many are though; it's kinda weird when someone actually wants to be id-protected! facebook ruined everything

lllljjjj (acoleuthic), Friday, 9 April 2010 00:13 (eight years ago) Permalink

i really was gunning for a hall of fame all time spot on that thread for getting heated at iiiijjjj and posting his actual name and his actual phone number

um, when he calls he usually asks for "louis jagger," i don't know how that prank is really going to work on you

yeah as a dummy that posted under my real name until a super o_O post from some crazy, i tend to be pretty shoulder shrug about this sort of thing, but that isnt really the modern take i suppose. xxpost

hoos hoos hudio (Whiney G. Weingarten), Friday, 9 April 2010 00:17 (eight years ago) Permalink

well i posted under my irl name (as a DN, not username!) for like 4 days and that was enough

whiney when he does it he'll pronounce it 'lewis' and that will be the prank

haw the lazy zings are the best eh

mods should have a mods only board to discuss these things, right? it shouldn't be jjjusten decided to do this; it should be the collective board moderator borg. no prob with the decision, you could drop iltmi into the abyss and I wouldn't notice :P

I'm a bit confused: the thread was initially just reposting stuff from other threads, so while I agree its not cool for the real names out there, they already were, on the other threads right?

Or did something else happen just before the delete that I missed?

Gay nineties icecream party (Trayce), Friday, 9 April 2010 06:22 (eight years ago) Permalink

Well yeah, but already having them in one spot doesn't make it ok to have them in 2 spots. To an enterprising ilx stalker, it was kind of a one stop shopping spree.

mods should have a mods only board for sitewide mods and board specific mods to plot the eventual demise of entertaining threads on ILX rite

I've no problem with deleting the thread, but what are these "prank calls" you're talking about? Is there actually some sort of "ILX stalker" who's calling people?!

yeh they call people in the middle of the night and try on some faux-naive routine, it is dreadfully annoying

Tuo, the prank call drama (it was just one call, right?) was played out on the Hipster Pippies thread on 77. The "Best Storyte77er" thread polls three different recaps of the drama and should sate your curiosity.

Okay, thanks! I've never checked that thread because I saw the words "hipster puppies" and decided it's not for me. Wouldn't have imagined hipster puppies would lead to this sort of drama.

Well, I thought it was just thread for pics of (supposed) hipsters and their (supposed) puppies, didn't realize there were book deals and large sums of money involved.

It would be a large sum of money for me. Obviously there's no objective measurement for what is a large sum of money, I guess for some rich person it's just pocket change.
