    Re: What exactly is a hostile environment?

    I would be happy to let Grindel rule with an iron fist. He's about as level headed and neutral as you can get.

    The Endless September refers to the time when the floodgates to the web were opened by AOL unleashing its membership upon it. The level of discussion and civility on usenet went from educational and somewhat intelligent to gibbering shitcocks and trolls in very short order. It's a 'back in the day' kind of saying.

    How's that 'Reading' thing working out for you? So far you're batting 0 for even knowing what forum or thread is being referred to.

    My intent is to let you know that I see what could turn into a problem and I hope to keep it away from there. You have every right to say anything you want to anyone you want, but it is my duty to enforce the civility rule.
    Awesome. Show me where the civility rule was broken. Otherwise, back to the whole 'stuffing it' thing. Seriously, I take more offense to you telling me how and what I can say when it quite obviously hasn't broken a rule or even come close.

    I'd say he is talking about your repetitive "soft" attacks. Which you continue to blatantly ignore the higher standard of civility due in this forum. Then you go and do another "soft" attack rather than just stop the crap. You claim "reading", yet you just issue attack, after attack, after attack. It's all you do, and it gets very tiring after a while. It gets to the point where even talking to you is not worth the time.

    I agree with this. The whole mod election thing is just a friggen sham anyways. I always believed in ruling the forums with an iron fist. If one doesn't like how it is moderated, you don't have to be here.

    Btw, Jonas and I are referring to a thread NOT IN THIS FORUM. So while you're simpering about bawling about 'standards in this forum', you've been further demonstrating why you fail so well without any assistance from me.

    Now shush. Away with you.

    Re: What exactly is a hostile environment?

    Ultimately, our mod strategy isn't working. I know why people feel they need this control over the mods and the voting, but rombus and Samedhi were 9 years ago, we need to move on and come up with a solution that works. This one doesn't.
    Why doesn't it work, exactly? Because Dmitry keeps using the word faggot?

    Oh, I understand now, you're ignoring predictability on purpose, like the future doesn't exist and actions have no repercussions. As I've stated, pretty calmly and clearly, if the attacks escalate into something that's a violation of the rules then I'll deal with it then. You know, in the future.

    I don't have access to your crystal ball, so yeah, I'm ignoring whatever future timeline you have access to. If you were however tapped in to some special Moderator Forecaster, you'd probably have banned Dmitry 6 months ago. My guess is that 6 months from now this whole cycle will replay itself.

    That's predictability for you.

    So I see you've realized that you were crying over a topic not in this forum. Put on your big boy pants now and say "whoops".

    Wow. So much for the higher standard of this forum eh? Someone explain to me what Ialniyien or Apallo's failings have to do with the topic at hand? Am I the only one tired of watching threads turn into a pissing contest between two posters over something entirely unrelated?

    No, you certainly are not the only one. Some of us are just tired of the same old arguments and baiting techniques and as I said before, thinly veiled attacks on others.

    In short, I think most of us are sick of the game Dmitry is playing, but at the same point the "argument" he makes stands, which is sad.

    While there are a lot of bad examples to pick from on the "liberal" side I can't imagine you have seen anything better from conservatives have you? Typically the ones who complain are the worst offenders to boot. The thread debating the merits of the anti-union bill really is an amazing example of this.

    The problem exists on both sides. The concept of debating the posts rather than the poster is dead, and the liberal side has more bodies admittedly. We really do need to let mods moderate without a report.

    No, it doesn't at this point. His argument has been dead for the last few iterations of this shitty cycle. What would you expect to happen to a poster that linked blacks and crime repeatedly? Do you really think he would be treated better?

    Feel free to put me on ignore. You've yet to say anything, even on the most trivial of topics, that I've yet to find worthwhile. And it'll probably save your mouse a few clicks between you hammering 'report post'.

    In short, I think most of us are sick of the game Dmitry is playing, but at the same point the "argument" he makes stands, which is sad.
    If you look at every series that he plants around election time, people keep saying 'he has a point'. The problem is that he doesn't know when to stop. He's gone far beyond his days of poking Zedd for giggles, far beyond trying to show the weaknesses in the moderation system and ruleset, to just being a bully that's given way more freedom than most.

    Gnizmo, you wonder how this thread has gotten so far away from Dmitry? Because it's easier to respond to my and Ialnyien than it is to respond to Dmitry.

    Agree on the second point. The report-based moderation is great in terms of "feeling" democratic, but in reality it just means people that don't tend to complain (like Torcer, for instance) will just have shit bottle up inside of them until they blow. Having mods be allowed to moderate both in response to reports and on their own could ameliorate that.

    You say that in the same post where you keep railing against Ialn on a topic barely related to the main point. Are you saying it is easier for you to poke Ianlyien than poke at Dmitry?

    Not sure what you're reading, but whatever.

    It's easier for people to respond to the distractions (Ial and myself) than Dmitry. It feels like a foregone conclusion that not much is going to happen with regards to his behavior.
