but i do really appreciate you admitting that the namecalling in the admin log was wrong, that's definitely one of the major points of contention here.

there are huge gaps btwn what sb deals with and some other banworthy behaviours.

yeah but dan decided that because he's a mod he got to have two or three SB's for the one time whiney pissed him off instead of one SB like everyone else on the site. seems fair to me

the "he was gonna get 51'd anyway" line is irrelevant - dan perry was out of line, it's not the first time this has happened, own up to it

what fuckin 2 or 3 sb's? Jeez this discussion can happen without shit-talk like this, cmon.

That display name is at least a couple of days old, I assume it has nothing to do with anything happening here.

If Whiney comes back and continues to be an abusive ass with a secret "oh but it's hust jokes, I really love you guys FUCK YOU haha I'm a scamp!" thread on 77, I will permaban him. ILX does not need that shit.

feeling the futility of all this now that the ultimate verdict has been cast

i don't think whiney is the biggest asshole on the board, imo there are much bigger and more gaping assholes, he's just the most visible because he posts a lot and often in all caps

samosa gibreel, Thursday, 4 November 2010 14:44 (eleven years ago) link

I "like" whiney fine but surely part of being a big asshole is related to the frequency of yr posts?

I raise this in a philosophical, probing-at-definitions fashion, not cos I've got a pony in this race.

Owner of a Homely Face (Noodle Vague), Thursday, 4 November 2010 14:47 (eleven years ago) link

i'd say visibility is the "big" part of "big asshole"

call all destroyer, Thursday, 4 November 2010 14:48 (eleven years ago) link

whineys problem imho is mostly that he has no taste

ice cr?m, Thursday, 4 November 2010 14:49 (eleven years ago) link

Anyway, caek and some dude have a point; their distrust in me and my judgment is going to make whatever I do as a moderator seem suspect and making mistakes like letting someone who is actively attempting to frustrate me succeed reinforces that.

I am, for better or worse, firmly of the opinion that actively attempting to frustrate and annoy a moderator (Note: not a poster; in this particular instance, I was, as a site mod, asking a poster to change a display name that others, including Whiney, had found offensive, and Whiney was spending his time derailing his own thread and making the situation worse than the offensive display name was. I have not and have never used moderation powers against someone who was arguing with me poster to poster and, aside from the entirely unlikely case of people suddenly deciding to drop n-bombs at me, I never will.) opens you to having moderation action taken against you. If you disagree with that and feel you have a better way, I offer you my moderation powers (pending approval from the other site mods).

Dear Roxy,

Why did you lock the diarrhea diarrhea thread on 1p3 iirc?

GOOD LUCK ILXORA

ice cr?m, Thursday, 4 November 2010 14:58 (eleven years ago) link

I just wanna say that in about 90% of cases I completely agree with Dan's mod decisions. While I don't necessarily agree with him in this case, apparently 51+ people did. This kinda astounds me because I don't really see anything offensive about WGW's style of posting, but there have been loud protests in the past against SBeanings that I thought were completely justified. Guess it takes all kinds to make this community. I don't have a conclusion for this thought. Peace.

What if mod was one of us? (kkvgz), Thursday, 4 November 2010 15:00 (eleven years ago) link

I do love how people nominations for mod are "let's have a mod who would never ban an awesome bro no matter what he said" -- great look, that

yeah see dan acknowledging that you're gonna send people to their rooms if they annoy mod-hat hi dere is the kind of paternalistic bs that ppl legitimately have beef with - adopt a more even-handed perspective or please stop being a mod

xp aero no one is saying that, and most of the noms are jokes. al would be an excellent mod I think

wakafledia (k3vin k.), Thursday, 4 November 2010 15:43 (eleven years ago) link

my first act as mod will be to auto-embed coroner songs into every thread
