Yes I do that is my new campaign on here lets make a democratic verbal free for all.
So it will just be like American democracy, were a lot of people vote for something but are totally ignorant of the situation at hand? That sounds grand! Your lack of knowledge of the situation would lead me to not vote; if I didn't have the actually history of having to deal with all this fucking bullshit.

They will be when my campaign on on here is over I think a lot of people will be down for this mods get a complaint it is serious ban but they have to give up the ban let the person defend themselves and then have a vote amongst all members of the board at a set time and date and then everybody abides by the descion and it has to be a real offense no Jedi mind trick accusations and witch burning trials. But real offenses
1-1-12 Bassnectar NYE SHOW! 1-21-12 G. Love and Special Sauce 3-1-12 Radiohead 3-9-12 Experience Hendrix 5-15-12 Jack White @ The Ryman 6-7-12 Bonnaroo 6-19-12 Roger Waters presents "THE WALL" 7-7-12 Ringo Starr's 72nd Birthday Party Extravaganza at the Ryman
I am pretty new to this board, and it's been my only experience with a forum of any kind, so I can't speak from any wide range of prior knowledge. and as such, maybe it's not smart for me to jump into such a polarizing debate, but I just wanted to say that I have had a wonderful experience on this board, and I think the mods do a great job.
I feel like most of the people who post on here regulate themselves and each other fairly well (like when I posted about something being "hipster" and realized it might have been taken the wrong way, so I immediately apologized). it's true that it's hard to determine tone in written words, but it's equally true that some people use the informality of online discourse to test out behavior they would never engage in face-to-face. I don't know sproat and had no interaction with him, and I've never ventured into chat, but I am glad the mods made a difficult decision to act to curb what sounds like dangerous and threatening behavior. leading anyone or encouraging them to act in a way that required EMS is not ever funny and should never be tolerated, IMO, on or off this board. same goes for tracking down someone's information- that's a violation with or without the intent to cause that person harm.
in a lot of ways, I think this forum could easily become an exclusive community that is not welcoming of newcomers; however, when I joined I was immediately welcomed and I now look forward to new posts/threads. I love checking in, and I think if there was no regulation this board would probably devolve into something I would no longer enjoy. the mods are people too and I'm sure they don't like having to police people, but they do it for the good of the community.
again, just my opinion, admittedly without knowing any of the specifics of this situation aside from what's been posted here. I just kept seeing all the posts in this thread, and wanted to chime in. feel free to disagree with me, but I do hope this doesn't result in a change of policy. (and I also hope this post doesn't result in a lot of hate my way )
real offenses What constitutes a real offense? For one person it is one thing, for another it is something entirely different. You will never get a consensus on this. Is it threatening others in PM's? Threatening others on FB? Threatening someones employ? How much does one take before one says enough?
And never underestimate the power of the mind trick games. They are dangerous. Sometimes as dangerous as true physical violence. We all know the power of the mind. The power of manipulation. The devious and yet subtle way to sway others to think as you do, feel as you do, believe what you believe. One has to be so very careful.
Ohhh, how is this vauge? How many posts have you made that have been deleted by a mod? Surely you have some idea what I'm talking about.
Either way, Sproat claimed responsibility for it and said it was a combined effort by him, you and another. So if he was lying, maybe you should think of what side you are on here? If he wasn't, then maybe you should back the Quack off and stay out of this topic of conversation. Either way, your post did happen. I know it happened. Others know it happened. Mods know it happened.
Hope that isn't vague???? I can go into more detail.
Thank you for the PM. You are referring to a post that I made when the Inforoo Webcam Chat Thread was blowing up with back and forth between EAP and Srpoat. My single post that was deleted (to my knowledge) read almost verbatim: "Sproat and EAP used to date, right?"
There was no combined effort. I thought of that witty remark all on my own. I'm confused what the big deal is. Not exactly sure why the mods had to delete the post, but it was rather inconsequential, so I didn't argue with them over it. It was so inconsequential that I needed you to remind me what you're talking about, because it actually slipped my memory.
I'm sorry, what point are you trying to prove again?
Are you really being serious?????
You PMed me about this particular point, for starters. You know the one that you had no clue of what I was referring to. Cleary you did, you brought it up in the thread soon enough.
You are welcome for the response. Thanks for not acknowledging anything I've said directly related to you after what caused you to PM me. Also, thinks for bringing up specific names because, you know, there is a reason a lot of people aren't speaking up. They want nothing to do with this and for good, founded quacking reasons.
and you made no response to my main point. Either you were in on just one of the many of examples of Sproat trying to cause trouble or he was lying about you being about of it. So take your pick, dude. That's what he told me. If he is lying about it, then how does that make you feel? You should be a little freaked out. I would be. But you seem to be going a different route, which is confusing and unsettling.
