A clear case of "I don't like the poster, so we'll act with a heavy hand."

sssshhh don't say that, anytime I say that (outside this thread for some odd reason) I get post after post after post; even PM's from inks, telling me that it's just not true!

I love this thread too.  I love the popular outcry against the stop-at-nothing, and also selectively harebrained, moderators, who see Atlas as their own lump of Play-Doh, ready to be molded into any ball, cylinder, or, given their likely predilections, inverted penis, that they wish.

Joe, Inks, take it to Moderator's Corner.  This isn't the place.

Mr Moderate at 54/10 is a total joke, he is a horror.

I think it is very possible that Vladimir Putin could be the Antichrist.  That is nothing more than an educated guess on my part.

That's creepy, Mr. Moderate.  You keep Tweed in a secret place and punish him when you feel he deserves it... but in a way that nobody, not even him, can see...

Do we need to notify the authorities?

You should consider yourself lucky.  The only thing that keeps you around is that the moderators can't ban you without having to ban BRTD likewise.

Unlike him, I have never been over 100 infraction points (or even 50 for that matter). Not that I support banning him mind you or even most of his infractions. I'd like to note that based on the infraction system the big black cock incident was apparently equivalent to a stupid unfunny joke about living in Siberia.

But I'll note that even though Inks can be pretty annoying with the anti-profanity crusade and much of his moderating actions he is one of the few mods who is actually impartial in his moderation actions, unlike for example afleitch, Joe and Gustaf.

Oh, I agree 100%.  Inks is generally a fair moderator.  I just think this particular case was a bad call.  And anybody who uses a term like "anti-pro-heterosexual" deserves to be run through the coals a few times.  But perhaps we've roasted him a bit too much. 

I think if Inks is resigning, all the moderators should resign.  Because all of them deserve to be moderators less than Inks.

So now Inks is resigning because a few people complained about his actions? LOL, if only all the mods were as easy.

It perplexes me that Teddy is so f**king paranoid too. If there was some big conspiracy against him he would've been banned long ago.

Of course, Sam resigned like a year ago, and Dave still hasn't done anything about it.

I think Lunar tried to resign too, and he still has a forum somehow, which also showed a great example to the dumbness in the current system when a reported post of mine went ignored for several days and he popped back in briefly after a several month absence and infracted me for it.

I'm only paranoid because when I show that the system has glaring flaws, people do not like it, be it here on the atlas, on other websites, or out in the real world. People don't like to be told they are doing something wrong.

Well one presumes it's a Spadian resignation, though the title may remain, he will cease taking part in any moderating actions.

That obviously was not the reason he resigned. But I'll let him explain himself if he wants to.

I considered that the more lenient option, rather than deleting it or whatever. All I have never heard of that movie; all I did was edit your post to match the title of the youtube video you posted so that the racist word was removed.
