Not banned, muted.

Since neither Dave nor Nym has been online in the last 24 hours, it sounds like there's been a coup, and one of you decided to give him the 50 point infractions of your own initiative.  Tongue


As you know, we have the authority to go for a mod review/muting in case of sock and spam accounts. The moment he returned, our friend Eharding started basically spamming again, so I think my action (yes, I take full responsibility) was justified. A few days ago another poster, I won - get over it, was put on mod review by one moderator, so it's not like there are no precedents.

Well, yes, I understand that you have that capability, but my advice would be that for a case like this, where you have a poster who's been posting on the forum for some time (and not some kind of drive-by spammer who immediately after registering starts posting 100 Viagra ads or something) you just put the guy on mod review rather than the full mute, unless you've already talked to the other mods and there's some kind of consensus to do more.  A single moderator unilaterally muting someone while Nym is away for a few days is something that normally shouldn't happen IMHO.

But that's just my take, as someone who was "on the inside" for several years.  I'm not a mod anymore, so it's no longer my problem.  Smiley


This won't end well for us.  Sad
I got my eye on you mister man.

You can not just pat these people on the head and give them a time out, They need to experience the repercussions of their vote, They will never change otherwise.

That milquetoast liberal empathy is why the republicans keep winning, They go in the gutter and were supposed to just get all touchy feely and feel bad instead of actually fighting back.

Yes, we are community, but every community operates by some rules. Does our community benefit from having a guy spreading rape apologism around? Come on, it's not having a free exchange of views and ideas.

There are forums where you can get in trouble for so much as mere questioning of a moderator's actions. Here, on Atlas, collective spitting at the mod community is almost a time-honored tradition and jolly good, not very totalitarian, though. Mods who have abused their position had fallen before and rightly so. It it was a diffrent situation, as some tried to portray as such, Sawx and Inks would still be roaming around, while you (or me, or Antonio or most of the people for that matter) would be long banned.

And yes, you're being melodramatic. Too melodramatic, for no intelligent person (and I've always considered you one of our most intelligent contributors) would make serious comparisons between moderation on the internet forum and Stasi or Kafkaesque fiction. And if it was supposed to be ironic then, sorry, but it's been done like 1000 times before.

Come on, dude, that's just really low.
lol considering the source it's not surprising, Douchebags will be Douchebags.

Every action taken by the mods is automatically bad, According to the same 3 or 4 posters every time.

23  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Grassley and Feinsten "grim and rattled" after meeting with Comey on: March 17, 2017, 10:55:24 am
Somebody with whom I had dinner a few days ago, who claims he is in the know (he's tight with our local congressperson, Schumer, and on and on), says the evidence will show (Flynn will be given immunity to squeal) that Trump offered Russia a relaxing of sanctions, in exchange for Russia's intervention in the campaign - in other words treason as it were.

Oh please.  There's not even one iota of evidence to suggest that anything shady occurred.  And Comey? You're talking about the guy who basically said, "well, there's enough evidence here (in the Clinton e-mail scandal) to prosecute, but we choose not to".  He totally gave Hillary the ol' "Get Out Of Jail Free" card.  Now Comey's trustworthy all of a sudden? Also, if you want to talk about treason, let's remember Obama's multiple acts of treason while in office.  There's nothing here, and liberals know it. 
Eh I'll give you a 1/10 just for the attempt.
" multiple acts of treason while in office" LOL I needed a good laugh.

This is beyond Bond villain nastiness.
