    Learn to use your words, not your DDOS scripts. You could have, and DID, post retorts to anything that I posted, and using attack scripts or threatening to use attack scripts is a completely disproportionate response to what you perceive as trolling, ever consider that?

    Pretty sure any discussion of taking down the site is met with a ban. I took no action against individual users, or even planned to yet was banned without question.

    Why again is this even a discussion?

    Because the thread in the moderation forums outlining this was the most confusing piece of text I've read in ages. People had to talk me through it as I'm obviously having a 'slow' day...

    Will be resolved shortly.

    Would also like to mind folks that there is a higher level of civility required in these forums, and they can(and will be) pro-actively moderated. Back off on the insults, chest beating and all round dickery please.

    Not to hijack, but seems like mod elections used to occur around here like twice a year, but hasn't happened in quite awhile. Am I remembering wrong, or has that process changed?

    It was raised extremely recently in the mod forums (in exactly the same manner). We currently don't have a lead admin to run the elections so we've just been coasting by with the same mod team (minus a couple who no longer visit). Realistically given the sites numbers and shrinking community more mod elections seems a bit of an indulgent waste of time but I could ask Nadiar to oversee them I guess. Bit harsh but sadly true I fear.

    Obviously I'm against be elections so that I can horde all this lovely lovely power for myself... ;-)

    Ah, makes sense. I guess I should have realized that.

    I don't think smaller, more frequent meltdowns would have been a great improvement.

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

    After discussion in the mod forums the mod team has decided to suspend Jonas's account for 1 year based on past precedent. We want to be clear that threatening to set up denial of service attacks against other posters is not acceptable from any poster, and the implicit threat that carries is totally and completely out of order.

    Jonas' about-face is the most retarded shit I've seen on the net in a long time; he actually managed to trump Dmitry's periodic inanity, which is not easy to do. Definitely an unexpected change in attitude. Who the fuck spams people as a response to someone getting on your nerves anyways? That's idiotic. It's not like he can't just put an individual on ignore either.

    To me the worst of it was that beyond the abuse of power he insisted that he did nothing wrong.

    On the other hand I hate to see an actually active poster gone, even though I rarely agree with anything he says Why can't people just behave?

    Hopefully he spends the time being banned on learning and joining the church of Emacs and Haskell. ^_^

    I'm pretty much bummed out by the whole thing. It's a damn waste. Jonas and I didn't see eye to eye on a lot of things, but there was room for both of us here. I hope he comes back when his suspension's up.

    Now I don't have any Windows enthusiast to argue with.

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

    Jonas is going through some significant life changes, IIRC - didn't he just move cross-continent, pick up a new job and new environments? Hasn't he been out of work for a while? He may have used us for his emotional dumping ground, which is unfortunate, but hopefully it helped keep him sane IRL.

    I, too, hope he comes back, even if I didn't agree with his perspectives. He did have useful commentary.
