Thanks opebo and MiamiU for standing by my side while I attempt to negotiate a common goal with the "Third Reich".  Reminds me of the following scene from Kelly's Heroes.   I'll allow you to pick which character you want to be, all three are cool in my book:



in the end, I don't believe there are any hidden agendas on either side.  We want a small slice of the forum to be used for more fun for all; they think our definition of fun is not funny.  We have the town surrounded; they have the Tigers stationed in front of the bank guarding the gold.

well, I better stop the movie reference, I'll be accused and shot for "trolling"...funny thing about that moive, though...the Nazis were willing to strike a deal to end the standoff:

Obviously I pick the Donald Sutherland character.  I'm really quite the Donald Sutherland fan, and in some ways a Donald Sutherland type.  Who wouldn't want to be Donald Sutherland?  Success, gravitas, and from the look of him **** like an *****.

sorry to all for the drama, but there's just something about an execution that gets my blood flowing.  they're just so...final.

Count them again... Not all of the points you're referencing were from your 'serious' proposal threads.

I don't know, I think the beat-back that happened in the wake of the Inks-Deluge debacle (and the descent of Leip to address it) means that the Mods don't have the standing right now to pull off a ban of a big-name poster.  this place would absolutely erupt, at least for opebo.  jmf maybe a bit less so, but still an outcry.  doesn't mean it could not happen at a future point.

[start: non-trolling light-hearted blasphemous joke/]

Careful… Leip described in this way the righteousness that is by the TOS: “Just, relax, and have a good time!”

But, the righteousness that is according to the Mods says, “Do not say in your heart, ‘Who will ascend beyond reach of the Mods?’”(that is, to bring Leip down) "or ’Who will descend into the Forum?’" (that is, to bring Leip up from the dead).  But what does the Nym say? “The death points are near you; they are in your back and through your heart,” (that is, the word they are proclaiming).

But isn't handing out any death points at all for posts politely questioning or critiquing you moderateors in the designated forum for such purposes by definition just self-serving censorship of dissent and elimination of transparency?

Btw, jmfcst, how many death points do you have at the moment?  I have at the moment 48.

it wasn't even that, rather it was a thread to get user feedback on a new proposed sub-board.

I think the numerous citations noted "Trolling" as the crime...though I am not sure how it is "Trolling" to propose an idea for a sub-board which 90% of posters favored...I would think having a 90% majority would be the opposite of Trolling.

It would have been nice to give Naso a proper venue for his video making talents.  Maybe even his Teddy bear could have made a cameo appearance.

Nevertheless I suppose they perceived it as an implied critique of their censorship.

How many people had actually voted to get that 90%?

I think it was 9 out of 10...but if you are going to claim the turnout was light, you need to factor in the following:

1) you deleted the thread while it was barely 2 hours old.

2) your past black panther intimidation techniques probably kept some voters away from the poll

3) I still consider you my friend

LOL!  A very good effort....but...didn't the original screenplay have the Mods in the role of the Nazis, and not Straha's supporters as the Nazis?

A freudian casting slip, perhaps?  A moment of self-actualization involving a thinly veiled confession?...you should be more careful with your work, lest your conscience become self-aware and testify against you prior to your own banning and execution.

3) that salvo of 17 death points, and no, I did NOT miscount them (5+3+5+4), were nothing more than an attempt to intimidate other posters (cause, obviously, they didn't intimidate me).  So you can just climb down from your DEFCON 2 posture, for no one believes you have the balls to go to DEFCON 1 and launch nukes against me.  Tongue

They always give these heavy volleys of death-points about unrelated posts whenever a poster questions or criticizes them.  It has certainly happened to me.  What makes you think they wouldn't step it up to outright banning?  I'm pretty sure that's where they're headed - banning people like you and I.

     Seatown left, though I didn't like him. I think someone else might have left and then returned later, but my recollection is imperfect. Also opebo left. Considering how many other posters have been banned and just made a load of sock accounts, I think that is significant.

Several other posters left for a while but eventually came back. Tweed and HockeyDude were among them.
