Jax's abuse of power Part Deux


Recommended Posts

it's bullshit on multiple levels:

 

1. Trolls are not the same as active posters. If a person posts a relevant topic in Politics, it will stay there.

2. I ONLY move posts/threads when they stop belonging in politics.

3. This is a personal attack and, as such, specifically constitutes abuse of modship powers on Jax's behalf, who appears to be no stranger to abusing modship powers.

 

So this is quite simple: restore the thread back where it belongs, Jax, I or I will fight fire with fire.

----------------------------------------------------------------------

there. I guess the debate will be held here.

 

Jumbie: wasn't trying to rehash shit, just kept it with it's like subject. truly. but you're right, it's unfair and I didn't think of it ahead of time, so we'll let that thread lie.

Wait, what happened?

I've decided that I'm adopting Joel's policy for moderating. Crap shacking posts and threads is in no way censorship, and since there are no formal rules about what should be posted, I've decided to enforce rules I make up. In this case, Joel posted an article that called Obama a monkey. Have determined that this incendiary vitriol is not appropriate for Politics, but instead appropriate for the Crap Shack, I have gone through all the appropriate avenues for which Joel has set the precedent. I made up a rule, I didn't recuse myself for possibly having a personal stake in the matter, I didn't consult anybody, and I acted as judge, jury and executioner.

 

If anyone thinks this policy (aka Joel's policy) is not reasonable, perhaps we should open the floor to suggestions of how moderators should handle crap shacking from here on in.

I'm just wondering why no one gave a flying fuck when the Limbaugh trolls were crap shacked a while back. Same basic shit, no real titty fits. Don't much care whether or not the T&P posts stayed or not, but what this has turned into is patently ridiculous. Dunno why Jax is so butthurt over these posts on particular though.

 

Also pretty damn sure that had it been any other mod that moved the posts, he wouldn't give a shit either. I mean, really stuff has been crapshacked for far less than this before.

I shacked Mortiis last week simply because he was pissing me off, and then somehow he came to be the bad guy. I acknowledge fault in what I did & I like to think it's the only time I've ever abused my power, certainly like to say it won't happen again. This troll business though... Trolls always angry up the blood.

see, here's the difference, Jax: the rules I set up where pretty fair.

 

If the topic doesn't have anything to do with politics, I move it to where it does belong. If the posts start going way off topics, I split the topic and adjust. and if trolls muddy up the thread, I clean it up.

 

What you did was grab a post that was relevant to the thread and, for purely personal reasons, crapped shacked it.

 

You're a dishonest, transparant tool.

I gotta say I agree with jax on this one, the only time it's okay to move posts is if it's a fair point just not in the relevant thread, but if it's a political troll or just a nonsense troll, it has as much right as anybody else to say what it pleases. If you don't like trolls skip the post and move on if you do, read it and move on. Trolls are accepted, allowed and often encouraged in all the other forums, why should politics be any different?

Nobody asked you to make up rules, and nobody asked you to clean up threads, nobody asked you to ban trolls. You decided to take the initiative to make up your own rules. My rule (equating Obama to a monkey = crap shack) is just as fair as your rules, it that's it's not fair at all. I'd like to see a conservative approach, instead, you have taken a itchy trigger finger approach. I have brought this up before, and though I had the power to reverse every crap shacking you've done in the past few months, I've instead objected to your decisions and let them stand while asking you to undo them yourself. You've turned a deaf ear to Nick and Jumbie and I when we all tell you the Politics forum is not meant to be a troll free or tangent free zone. Now until you listen ease up on your arbitrary and Draconian authoritarianism, I will continue to make up my own rules, that will always penalize your threads, just by coincidence. This issue will not be ignored any longer.

bull fucking shit. (and you'll notice how I'm ignoring you taking the monkey bit entirely out of context. I just wanted to point that out).

 

I've always asked Nick before I moved anything, and I last asked him for a clear delineation of what it is I can and cannot do. He gave me the answer, and I went with that.

 

This isn't about trolls, Jax, it's about you and me. If you are incapable of removing the personal from this then you should have your mod powers removed. That would be the second time now that you do this, btw.

 

And if you continue to target my threads, I will have no choice but to fight fire with fire.

 

don't fucking escalate this, Jax.

 

 

And, again, is George pointed out, your selective 'outrage' here is palpable, Jax.

It's not.

 

Skeeter's crap shacked shit before now. So has DoJ. Ruby crap shacked and edited some shit Lor did back in the day. Isa has Crap Shacked stuff, as well.

 

Mods here have crap shacked things, re-organized and fixed tangents before. This isn't about my particular method, ASC, it's about Jax being bored, wanting some drama, and attacking me to start shit.

 

Case and point: if he were in any way sincere about it, he wouldn't move an obviously legitimate political thread to crap shack in some one-uppance game.

to quote Nick when it came up to this the first time:

 

Its your corner, and it wasnt censoring, technically, so i see it as ok, though you have to be clear on policies such as that.

I have been.

 

My actions have already been ruled upon by the Administrator is Legal, Jax. So fucking back off.

He was 100% wrong and apologised for it.

 

So has DoJ.

Yeah, it was a completely legitimate thread I made, that he crap shacked for whatever reason. But he was called on it and it was put back into music

 

Ruby crap shacked and edited some shit Lor did back in the day.

Child porn

Crap shacking should only be done with posters consent or if it's a double post or something.

Reorganising is fine moving a post in abortion about global warming to global warmking is fine, but crap shacking nonsense or political trolls is wrong.

That may be so, but he still has a point.

Was he talking about you crapshacking trolls there? If so I gotta disagree with him, and would like to see him post in this thread

what I did was legal, consistent and non-discriminatory: neither of which Jax can claim. I did not single anyone out here, like Jax did.

 

So even until such a time as he clarifies it, I can't fucking be harassed for something I have the fucking permission to do.

That's true, if you have permission it should be condoned for now.

But we really have to review this

I've already said it was bullshit, I'm just saying it's the exact same bullshit you pull.

 

The Terrence and Phillip trolls were commenting on a thread about Glenn Beck, a man who is the embodiment of a joke, and stayed on the realm of politics (Glenn Beck and Hillary Clinton). It wasn't until they called you a mindless monster that you took umbrage and crap shacked it. A troll insults you, and you crap shack the troll. This was not a derailing.

 

According to the rule you cited from Nick (It's not censorship, it's your corner), I am in complete accordance with the letter of the law. I didn't erase anything and everyone can still see your thread. By the very standards by which you defend your own actions, I have done nothing wrong. It's a free speech zone.

ASC & DOJ both speak for me in terms of my actions. Opinions though... White Power music is champion, but Trolls suck, and crapshacking them just doesn't seem enough. Maybe we should check their IPs & intern them into camps or something. It's just some final solution to this problem I'm contemplating.

 

 

PS- I may or may not need a lot of sleep, so don't hold anything i say against me. Was fun to say though.

bullshit. I already said I only glanced at what was going on. I didn't even know I had been insulted until you pointed out.

 

and lets not be ridiculous, either. Irish Nigga insulted me and I let it be. If I were to crap shack every post that insulted me, Crap Shack would double in size. It's a baseless accusation, Jax, and a bullshit means of justification.

wrong. I set up the standards and I've adhered to them. I've applied them evenly and even cited them.

 

You, literally, took a thread with context and trashed it for no other reason than to stir shit up, something you yourself aknowledge! THAT, sir, is abuse of power.

You're right. The only difference between my actions and yours is I recognize what I wasn't cool. What you've done is equally uncool, but you don't recognize it. I crap shacked your thread fully aware that the action was without merit, and you crap shack threads and you puff up and proclaim your arbitrary reasons as if just making up rules is ok.
