    I Have an Issue with a Moderator That I Believe Requires Discussion

    Jonas is a moderator here, according to the message that popped up when i tried to put him on ignore. But this morning, when I logged in here at Graffe's, I had a couple of PM's from Jonas. They were titled with typed-in laughter, and contained references to spamming me. I sent him a two-word reply (Bone-Ass), and his reply to that was so disturbing that I felt that I had to bring up the topic here.

    I won't violate his privacy by posting the contents of his PM to me, but let it suffice to say that he claimed that when he sent me those PMs he was in the process of recording a script with which he intended to spam my inbox, but that he changed his mind because he realized he might get banned for it.

    While I'm glad that he decided on his own to not go through with his plan, he was actually in the process of implementing it when he changed his mind. What the hell kind of loser would set up a spamming script like that? Especially someone with Mod powers who can't be Ignored? Is there a process for removing a Moderator who is obviously too immature for the responsibility?

    Shit, I was going to address the post you had in that other thread, and forgot about it.


    As a Moderator, he doesn't really have any privacy, and it would have been fine to post them. I reported his posts for you and will let the moderators stew over them, but Maledict and Mdar have the final call.

    I did not know that. Then here they are:

    Sorry, I was setting up a DDOS on your mailbox, sent the message while recording the script. Decided that would be a pointless dick move that would probably get me banned, and rightfully so, so I didn't do it after all. =P

    I generally like Jonas and I think I even voted for him, but I don't see how he could possibly continue to be a moderator after those messages, let alone his open admission to having planned a spam attack, even unrealized.

    Re: I Have an Issue with a Moderator That I Believe Requires Discussion

    Hell, I didn't just plan it, I actually recorded the script, have the project and controllers available and can use it at any time! In case there's any question, my two minutes of recording a web load test script in VS2012 could potentially take this entire site down because I can spin up thousands of test agents on Azure at any time to DDOS the fuck out of anything that I want.

    But, cooler heads prevailed (mine) and after I had finished recording the script, I realized it was childish and decided not to do it. Alikat's vendetta wouldn't let her do the same, though, so go tattle like a fucking four year old about some bullshit that really doesn't matter, and generally fuck you. I tried to quit being a moderator two years ago, wish I'd known it was as easy as just telling someone you were going to do something bad and then not doing it!

    Don't put any of this on Alikat. YOU lost your goddamn mind even jokingly threatening something like that and YOU are the only person responsible. Alikat did the right thing and handled it properly.

    No where in anything I have written on this topic have I said any of this was her fault. But now that you mention it, she really is the troll that ticked me off enough to consider it! Like I said in the mod forums, do what the fuck you want.

    You mentioned some vendetta like any other poster wouldn't have reported you for threatening them via PM

    Re: I Have an Issue with a Moderator That I Believe Requires Discussion

    This is what you said:
    Premise: Alikat has a personal vendetta against me.
    Conclusion: Alikat is at fault for my actions.

    The conclusion does not follow the premise.

    This is what I said:
    I DID IT, FUCK YOU.

    Is that a threat?

    I Have an Issue with a Moderator That I Believe Requires Discussion

    Dude, she openly expressed that she wanted to put you on ignore. I think that further sending her any message would be considered abuse of power as a mod.

    The grown up thing to do would be to just ignore what she says.

    Also bragging about being able to bring the site down seems a little petty (and in context somewhat threatening) in this community. I don't doubt there are several who could do that if they wanted to, but why would they? Why would you?

    At the end of the day if you really value a persons opinion on this site so little, they're just text on a screen. Not something to get so worked up about.

    Actually, on second thought, you're not a moron, because you're obviously successfully trolling the hell out of me, which, ironically, makes me the moron!

    IRL, Jonas has been off his meds for two weeks, btw.

    Exactly my point, that anyone would think I or anyone else here who can do this would actually do this is either trolling or an idiot.

    So perhaps I'm not the problem, perhaps you're the problem, ever actually consider that?

    Then why bother telling us that you could if you wanted to?

    Considered it, evaluated it to be true, and owned it. Now step the fuck off.
