The only thing I have done is call out Erxy for his ridiculous +4 repping. As I said, it was insulting to the forum members.

I think I&I is a dickhead, his posts are annoying and disruptive.
Administrative action request: I really would like to have the ability to make his threads disappear from my view.
We have a thread subscribe feature, obviously we could have a thread ignore feature. It ain't rocket surgery. Drinking Beverage
Unfortunately, it just isn't that simple. There is no "ignore thread" option. We are restricted by the program the forum runs on, and we don't see much money flow through, so the budget for updates that cost money is very tight. Truth is, of it weren't for the money that has been donated by members, we'd be running an even older version of MyBB.

I am looking into this though. I'll do everything I can, but just be aware, that isn't much.
I was offering software engineering services gratis.

RE: I and I
I think its up to Erx on who and how much rep he gives out, for whatever reason he so wishes... as is the right of every single forum user here.

That is his business and his alone.

For no matter how much I use these symbols, to describe symptoms of my existence.
You are your own emphasis.
So I say nothing.

And this is precisely what I am talking about. How dare I criticize your leadership, my dear leader.

Since it seems that spamming the politics board with endless dribble about 3 subjects is acceptable, I think I might start myself. And you'll know when I decide to do so.

You misunderstand. I'm not your leader, nor do I wish to be.

That said, your threats indicate you really could us some guidance and leadership. Time to pull up your big boy pants and start acting your age. Passive agressive tantrums will get you nowhere.

Bishadi and Arctic were posting the same thing over and over again. AND, they were spoken to by Stark about keeping their topics limited to one thread if it was the same topic. They probably would've been tolerated, but both belligerently refused to heed the warning and both were extremely belligerent to the forum as a whole, so Stark put the banhammer on them.
I haven't seen I&I be mean spirited or belligerent. In fact, when he's not talking politics, his sense of humor is quite similar to my own and I enjoy it. I don't read his political stuff because I don't care for it. I find it bullshit, but I also find it food for thought sometimes. But for the most part, I ignore it, because that's how I live my life. If I don't like something, I don't participate in it.
As for starting topics that are the same thing, I & I started to do that the other day and I closed the thread and then contacted him to explain, "if you're already talking about capitalism, you've already got a thread for that." Okay, he was fine with that.
I look down the list you've created and I see that there are MAYBE a couple of topics that could be combined, but for the most part they are separate topics. Yes, they all carry the same slant. He wants to see a communist system and an end to capitalism and the US Industrial Military Complex that supports filling the pockets of the rich. You know what? That last part especially is not a bad argument. That's his over-riding philosophy so it appears in what he says about different events.
You know what? All of my topics carry the same slant. I have a personal distaste for religion. So I can post a football story and say it's stupid that players thank God. I can post a joke and say, see this laughs at god. I can tell a story and say I used to think it was God but now I see it's not. The thing is, most of you feel the way I do about religion so you find no problem with it. But in I&I's case, you find his arguments ridiculous so you go on a crusade to silence the voice of dissent.
Well, America was built upon the voices of dissent. So were many other countries around the world. Is TTA now a forum for silencing dissent and creating Groupthink? If it is, I'm outta here. So long and thanks for all the fish.
So, is it your proposal that from now on we limit forum members on the number of Threads that they can open? Because that's what you're implying in your complaint against I&I.
And calling me or my actions Daft? Call me and whatever the fuck I do what ever you want. I've done nothing wrong. I have not hurt you or slandered you or even the actual fuck directed my Rep of him to anyone else but him. You don't like it? I can't help that. I will say I'm sorry you don't like it, but I don't have to explain what I do unless I want to. I don't remember going around posting about other members asking why they said what they said or did what they did. You want to single me out because I'm admin, fine. I can deal with it.
Now, in general:
If anyone has an actual complaint, please make a cogent argument. Don't just say, So and So posts a lot and I don't like what s/he says, so ban him/her because I get butt hurt when I see people post things that I find ridiculous."
I have neither said I am offended, nor have I asked you to explain yourself. Stop jumping to conclusions every time somebody voices a complaint.

I dont get it? So administrators should second guess their actions in a way that represents the forum?

He is still a forum member though. He may rep how he wants. Being an admin isn't his profession ya know. Tongue

RE: I and I
K, let's get this straight....I am not computer savvy at all. It may be that MyBB is free, and there's other costs involved? DeepThought takes careof that part of the forum, but he is unavailable at the moment.

Chas, if you are serious, I would gladly accept your help!

So many cats, so few good recipes.
