RE: The Three Abusers.
A2, when I first got here Stark held the Banhammer but had never wielded it. No porn/nudity, no spam and try not to be a prick. And it was good. Then there was the departure of our dear friend Parture. Starkster, not being a stupid man thought "The fuck I need with this shit?" The Banhammer was then handed down through a myriad of variously incompetent wielders until the only way this forum was gonna survive is if Stark did his friends a favor and take the Banhammer again.

This is the best I've ever seen this forum being administered, A2. MomSurroundedByBoys and her girl Friday StarkRaving are doing an excellent job. Feels like the good old days and it is good.

Now if we could just throw those fucking juvenile-inspired rules away and go back to "No porn/nudity, no spam and try not to be a prick." with Mom and the Madman making the calls, that'd be great. Big Grin

I was fine with the administration until recently, girly. I am fine with the current system. I am not saying that it should be abolished. If the system works, it works. Don't let me clog it up. I just voiced my distaste for the blatant favoritism I saw. And I humbly want to say that I don't want that for me. Ban my ass if I ever create a sock or spam or break the rules. Do not give me perks just because I am a longtime member in relatively good standing. Do not give me a temp, do not merely slap my wrist. Enforce the rules on my just like any member.


Like I said, I deal because I love you guys.

Holy shit, now I have seen it all. Huh

No, I am arguing for admin/mod discretion.


Quote:Veteran's back then WERE AN ADVISORY GROUP.

No, it was a cool kids club.

Quote:I wasn't there to socialize, I was there to do what I had been told was the goal of the vets, advise and offer insights.

This is your problem, you need to remove the pole from your ass and chill the fuck out.

Quote:It says in the rules...

Actually, what does it say in the rules about sock accounts?
Lets have a look shall we?

"Posting on behalf of a banned member may lead to you being considered an effective sock-puppet of the banned member. This may lead to your account facing restrictions and, in extreme cases, temporary or permanent bans, at the Admin's discretion."


To think, this could have been all avoided having either of us (but mostly you because it's your issue) had actually read the particular rule in question...

Quote:And speaking of a sock account way to possibily compromise any way of me participating in the forum in case of fucking parental drama.

I did no such thing I was careful not too.

Quote:I would like to believe that if a newer, less popular member was in the same situation as me, the admins would take the same measures.

And I would like to believe that even though it's 3pm, if I go to the grocery store now they will have cheese and bacon bread loafs in stock. Doesn't mean it's gonna happen.

Quote:I don't like liars, and I am sure I am not the only one.

I don't like half the people that come here, doesn't mean they don't deserve admin discretion like everyone else.

Quote:TTT came clean and was a contributing member for a while as Li_Holodomer, we should bring that guy back then... Or I guess we won't. he seems happy exactly where he is at.

TTT also constantly made numerous (and still does to this day if I'm not mistaken) sock accounts, constantly breaking the rules. He purposely breaks the rules constantly and has not demonstrated a desire to return as a valued member of TTA.

Woof was just being a dick and tried to pull a bit of wool over our eyes.
Doesn't mean he wants to purposely disrupt the forum.

Quote:I personally don't think it is fair for certain members to get benefits others members are denied. I agreed to the same rules as everybody else, they should be treated exactly I should and vice versa.

Yes and no. Being a regular, long time member, should have certain privileges. It's like a reward system. If I take the time and get to know the people here they will like me/know me more and we can have our little inside jokes and we interact in a more casual different way to what we would if we were strangers.

It's natural to give your "friends" more 'slack' than complete strangers. You understand people you know better and understand why they do stupid shit.
I can say bad shit about Maori's and people would be less offended because they know me, but if I was a stranger it would come across as just racist and so their opinion of me would change drastically.

You say you don't want special privileges but you have them whether you like it or not because you are a long time member and know the staff and other members well and they know you. They know your problems, you know theirs.
You don't get that with strangers.

I forgot my point. Whatever, I'm sure there's a point to be made somewhere in that.

Quote:Like I said, I didn't get all the information.

So get all the information before you start making accusations regarding Mom's and Stark's moderation ability.

Quote:Again, am I going to rail about this and spam the forum? Hell no dude. I just expressed my opinion. You have every right to

You're not spamming the forum. It's in 1 thread, a Woof thread about rep of all threads too, and prior to this conversation they were doing puns.
I think you're safe on the spam wagon...

Quote:I agree with both statements, but I would not give any exceptions to someone who should know the rules, and really has no excuse to not be familiar with them by now.

Considering the quote I took directly from the rules above I don't think you're really in a position to be giving lectures of people that should know the rules...

Quote:I do not follow rules because they are rules.

Quote: Post 76

What about it? Banned for being a sock. I don't see the issue.
I see that and to me it looks like it was an on the fence issue (if he was a sock or not) but because his behavior was negative it pushed him over the edge and he was banned.

If someone came along and was on the fence (regarding if they were a sock or not) and were pleasant I'm sure they wouldn't be banned.

First time posters have always been under harsher condition than regular members.

Yeah, other than intentional porn/nudity aka suicide by cop, I don't think that's up to you. Prosecutorial discretion and whatnot. ... And as far as the rules, well you know what I think of rules.

RE: The Three Abusers.
Besides you basically revealing that I indeed had a second account during the drama, you did indeed compromise that. And fair enough. It falls under admin description, which I do not dispute as a fact. However, was it favoritism, or an actual assessment of a scenario or judgement accordingly.

And if my scenario was favoritism, then fuck that. It genuinely sucks that the admins would not have done that for anyone else in need.

And the dude wasn't banned for being a sock, he was banned for being a suspected sock. I wonder what evidence they used? I wonder why it wasn't conclusive. If the IP matched anyone else, it would have been, so the IP must not have matched anyone. This means they did it purely based on behavior.

I wonder who it most likely was? And either way, I don't think its fair to punish someone of being suspicious anyways. The only other reason stated was "he was most assuredly a racist cunt.

I asked for information and clarification. I did not receive any information besides that which I researched myself. Naturally, I made a call based on the information I had.
And where in the Hell did I question Moms' leadership? I said Stark because he was the one who said made the call. I said it was a bad call.

I know it's not up to me. I am saying that I don't want whatever rule-breaking privileges I am "entitled" to.

RE: The Three Abusers.
I’m getting misty-eyed listening to A2 and Muffs go at it.

Group hug! [Image: huddle.gif]

As it stands Woof tendered his resignation over at “the place whose name must not be mentioned” because he says “...this forum consists mainly of TTA stooges...”

I fully expect the Woofmeister back as soon as the temp-ban is lifted, so hold on to your rep points!
