okay i read that thread - basically he was making a complaining joke about the non-77 poster's display name discussion that got those threads moved to ILE - and he got banned for that? or was it that he didn't stop when Dan warned him to stop?

sarahel, Wednesday, 3 November 2010 20:45 (nine years ago) link

see you in 27 days, dumbass

harsh. i like that guy; what'd he do?

oh! thanks.

tbph i duno why, if unperson's DN is so bothersome, that the temp ban hasn't gone that way.

who's the unperson now?

buzza, Wednesday, 3 November 2010 20:49 (nine years ago) link

^^ seriously - like Dan felt strongly it should be changed, Whiney had been complaining that it should be changed - why ban Whiney?

omar little, Wednesday, 3 November 2010 20:52 (nine years ago) link

i dunno - it just reminds me of the noize board AC Transit bus fight video incident where a couple posters pissed off Dan, and then he banned them, but that was only a few hours banning.

To be blunt, because instead of acting like a normal, rational poster and either addressing unperson directly or going to MRF, Whiney went to 77, took offense when reminded that meta-shit about non-77 people was a no-go (note: I was also involved in the meta-shit but I dropped it immediately when reminded of what I was doing) and spent the next few days loudly proclaiming that ILX mods are champions of rape jokes when to my knowledge none of the mods had even encountered unperson on a thread since he changed his screen name to that. When I encountered him, I asked him to change his screen name, and Whiney took that as an opportunity to rant some more EVEN THOUGH THE SHIT HE WAS ORIGINALLY COMPLAINING ABOUT WAS BEING HANDLED.

I am actually going to speak for every site mod here: we are sick of this shit. Knock it off.

were there posts that were deleted or was this in a different thread? because it just seemed to me like he was just following up on am0n's post.

mod ban thyself

ice cr?m, Wednesday, 3 November 2010 21:16 (nine years ago) link

calling the poster a "dumbass" in the admin log does not make the decision appear to be about the community.

String Yr BLOBs (bnw), Wednesday, 3 November 2010 21:40 (nine years ago) link

oh wait what's this i thought for sure official policy was moving threads from 77

haven't seen the exchange in question but if whiney brought up that unperson bullshit again it's his own fault imo - it's not a dificult rule to follow

otoh 27 days seems a bit harsh and "see you in 27 days, dumbass" is a lame tombot bite

oh what...so whiney got tempbanned for annoying perry?

man and i was gonna be all pro-mods on this one, i swear

back to the pile

wakafledia (k3vin k.), Wednesday, 3 November 2010 22:01 (nine years ago) link

The thing that should be taken away from this is that ranting like an insane person about off-topic meta things will get you tempbanned if I come across it.

Spend more time talking about things other than each other and you shouldn't have any problems.

If making fun of rapeyness is a bannable offense, we should all get a time-out for that thread where we ragged on Sublime for singing an anti-rape song.

Anyway, I think Whiney had probably just had too many circus peanuts or something. Just give him a couple days and he'll cool off.

kkvgz, Wednesday, 3 November 2010 22:23 (nine years ago) link

a couple of days, lol

omar little, Wednesday, 3 November 2010 22:24 (nine years ago) link

just give him a couple pills and like 30 years of therapy

ice cr?m, Wednesday, 3 November 2010 22:25 (nine years ago) link

imo something should be added to the FAQ saying basically "be nice to Dan Perry all the time or be prepared to face the consequences" because that's pretty much how it feels at this point. maybe all the mods stand together on his decisions but usually it feels like it's him taking stuff personal, acting on it, and then usually jjjusten backing him up. nothing against you, dude, you're an A+ poster and as big a part of ILX as anybody but i'm getting Tombot flashbacks.

ice cr?m, Thursday, 4 November 2010 04:12 (nine years ago) link

Whiney obviously can be a gaping asshole and can be 51'd when he's a general nuisance, as he has been and may be again in the future. but if anything that lowers the impetus for mod intervention, especially a 4-week ban for the kind of thing that iirc usually warrants a couple days in the penalty box. when i talked to him about it he didn't seem particular upset or impatient to get posting privileges back, so i'm not really adamantly protesting on his behalf or anything, but i still think it was pretty clearly a raw deal.

People taking the fact that hi dere and I have known each other for a billion years and turning it into evidence #1 for how we are rogue mod cop buddies watching each others back can stfu IMO. Shit is getting old.

Like so far my "backing him up" in this instance was clarifying that the 28 day deal was generated by the system just so peeps had transparency on that and all of a sudden I'm gabby Hayes dancing on a saloon table in the background while dan cold guns em down.

I'm generally fine w/ mod fascism but 'see you in 27 days, dumbass' seems like more of an abuse of power than the actual banning

i read this whole thread and i still dont really understand why whiney is banned

The fact that peeps still invoke tombot in these threads like you are survivors of some despotic Internet police state is totally fucking pathetic as well btw.
