    Some poster gives out password information. The proper response is

    A) Do nothing and let anyone who wants into the account
    B) Temporarily lock the account and give the poster a chance to change the password

    Lead us out of moron, let us know what to do!

    Re: Iblis account locked pending review

    I've asked Nadiar to reset his PW for us and when I get confirmation that it's done, I'll unlock the account, or nadiar will.

    Hey, just got confirmation.

    Re: Iblis account locked pending review

    So...Ibliss, out of the blue, gives out his password information? I must have missed something...I don't get it.

    NM - read the other thread.

    Re: [resolved] Iblis account locked pending review

    So, what's the story here? Was it just a case of moderators being slow to fix a very odd typo in his thread title? If so it's a pretty staggering overreaction by Ibliss. Or did a moderator actually change his thread title to make him look dumb? If that's the case, that moderator needs his powers revoked.

    OK, yeah, the first time I read his thread I missed the part about it being a typo.

    So... staggering overreaction, then.

    1) Moderator further changed thread title to make him look dumb (after it was already a typo... or the typo was there and then it was edited to further look dumb, or something it doesn't matter fuck it)

    2) Poster deleted all content, then replaced it with a toilet with a steaming pile of shit smeared on it

    3) Poster proceeds to post account information

    So it went like this:

    1) Typo

    2) Mod made the typo even worse to be "funny".

    OK, so it was both an overreaction and a ridiculous abuse of mod powers. Gotcha. The picture is clear now.

    Logical use of mod powers after the original poster acted even more ridiculously when he posted the disgusting photo.

    Just as I disagreed with Nadair changing Salgak's name, in an attempt to be funny, I disagree with a mod changing a thread title for the same purpose; however, all that doesn't excuse the subsequent actions by Ibliss.

    Really, when are some of you going to grow up?

    Did you miss the part where I said that Ibliss overreacted?

    I have no problem with the mods removing the picture or locking the account until the password was reset. I have a major problem with them changing his thread title to make a "joke". That's not what they were elected for, and the power-trip mentality it requires to think that using moderator powers granted by the community should be used in such a manner is appalling.

    I'll agree to grow up when you agree to read more carefully and insert less of your own assumptions into things when responding to posts.

    You make a typo, you deserve to be made fun of for it. If you can't deal with a joke made at your own expense because of said fuck up then you suck. hth

    Slippery slope not so slippery in serious land.

    <vdou|work> if he's lookin at something , he's hatin on it


    <vdou|work> its a given that anything with 'intelli-' as a prefix for the product's name is going to be more than a little retarded

    Re: [resolved] Ibliss account locked pending review

    Please spare me the BS about how this was just to fix a password problem. How fucking gullible are some of you? This is about Mods abusing their power to get back at a poster they went at it with several days ago. As far as Mdar’s passive aggressive post (Swipe at me followed by an admonition for to “Keep it civil”), Blow me.

    This is little people on a mini power trip. In the scheme world history’s of abuse of powers, it’s pretty small potatoes, but I stand by my original comment that they were fucking morons. Ibliss had a right to be pissed; you don’t fuck with people’s “works” and falsely attribute words to them. In RL, that sort of thing deserves a punch to your face. It fully deserves the contempt I’ve shown, and probably the contempt Ibliss showed.

    Sure, you can be made fun of. You can even be made fun of by moderators. But not via moderators using their powers to make changes to thread titles or user titles or anything else you have no control over. There's a line that you just don't cross when you're given powers that the peers who put you into your position don't have.

    I wasn't referring to you when I suggested some around here grow up.
    I did read your initial response to Ibliss, and didn't comment on that. I only commented on the part where you said "it was both an overreaction and a ridiculous abuse of mod powers", but even then only to the part where the photo was removed and the acct locked.
    I agreed with you on the initial modding being wrong.
