Well I missed the earlier drama, but I'm happy T_T and T-Man will continue their portraits in Troll's blog.

It's a website, a pretty liberal one at that. It's not like administration is forcing you to the back of the bus. I think y'all should get a cherry slushy and relax.

Big ups to Rosh and Hawley, though. Sometimes it is the principle of the thing.

I'm sure glad we finally got serious in this thread. I was starting to think I was on the internet.

The Asylum is to principles what you are to Muslim cuisine.

I am far from bleating my old muccka. I am actually quite pleased that my portrait was not included.

I've barbecued for Muslims before, man, and they snarfed it down with great relish.

So, I guess you're right again.

obvious?? The fact that I occasionally give a bunch of points is not "abuse of power". Go figure how many points I have given and figure how many I could give if they were earned like yours. You might be surprised at how in line I am... although there isn't anything wrong with an admin having a little more license, now is there?


Yeah, take a look at how many points I actually give out, compared to how many I could. I never used the FWA thread as a point factory, as I am almost always at maximum pernt-capacity. And any time the rules don't apply to those who administer them, it's an abuse of power. Sometimes it's harmless, but still not right.

quote:
The only valid comment you make here is "I missed it". Fucking live on gossip why don't you? Hawley tried his best to get banned back then and openly admitted it. What he posted was not a "gray area". He was never banned but I did threaten it. We do have a few rules and that one is a biggie. Sorry if you find keeping the site legal as heavy handed. I wasn't the only admin who was ready to pull the plug on him.

Correct me if I'm wrong, since I didn't actually see the picture (I saw the debate), but he posted a picture of a child with a photoshopped penis on it. Enough to delete the image just to stay on the safe side, but it's not like it was actual child porn. It's gray area. Sufficient to delete it, and give a warning to clarify the rule. The vary nature of gray area is there is room for disagreement. Since he didn't get banned, I'd guess that means more admins disagreed with you than agreed.

quote:

heavy handed that I'd prefer?? Fuck you, Rosh. This site runs just fine and I take some credit for that. The level it runs at is the level WE prefer. It is as fairly moderated as it can be.



It's reasonably fairly moderated, but I'd suspect it's only because there are others who counterbalance your tendencies to overmoderate. In any discussion in the admin forums over whether something should be moderated, have you ever piped in a "No"? I doubt it.

quote:

My art threads have always been fair game. I don't have some possessory feelings over a thread or desire to keep it on track.

bullshit

Give me one example to the contrary.

quote:
bullshit again. Derailment is not the norm and shouldn't be. Too many sites have let that wreck their forums. The level of postings here have kept the derailing to an acceptable minimum and the threads are fairly well enjoyed.


My turn to call bullshit. Derailment happens all the fucking time. Sometimes the threads get back on topic, sometimes they just die. It's normal, and expected, when people are given free reign to speak. With the exception of PDM and the photo album threads, threads are almost never moderated to keep them on track, and that's the way it should be. It's a forum, and it thrives on discourse, wherever that leads. The sooner you accept that, the better off the forum will be.

quote:

The amount of "censorship" here is incredibly low, almost nonexistent. I'm pretty happy with that, as much as that may surprise you.
You are right. You did do more to derail this thread and you can quit this attempt to sidetrack your culpability any time you like. I forgive you.


Censorship is low, but only because those of us who value it speak up when shit like this happens. If you're not called on the little stuff, then it opens the door to larger abuses. Even if the little stuff stands, it at least gives the admins a way to gauge what the community will stand for.

I haven't tried to sidetrack my culpability for derailing the thread. I just don't consider it a bad thing given the reasons for it. Sorry if you disagree, but it's not like you can do anything about it without starting a real shitstorm.
