I was just banned for my comments on this thread…
In many respects (and IMHO) the moderator (T9R) was at least somewhat technically and specifically correct. However, part of this mod’s decision was based on issues regarding doxing: “I also don’t take kindly to the fact that you’re asking someone to post personal information.” Yet my comment (request) was a reply to someone who asked me to post my voting ballot. In other words, my reply was to a request to dox myself. And, more to point, that comment, requesting potentially personal information, came from someone who has been banned before because of their doxing…thus my reply to that commentator to go fuck themselves.
Now…do I expect any moderator of BN&R to hold a memory, or the history of prior discussions which very often go months, and even years back? Hell no.
BUT…when considered the “long haul”…the history of comments that have accrued over the years, who is to say?
I want to share a comment from TUS, which can be found here…
“Don’t let it bother you. It is a badge of honour, actually. You have clearly left an impression on him. My own cloak of far right nutter stalkers is long and rich. I’m thinking of getting it embroidered. They show up here to break the rules just so they can get banned. Then they can run off to their far right safe spaces (that don’t allow liberals) to cry and whine about how unfair we are over here. It is sad and pathetic. So long as Martini keeps it non-vitriolic it’s fine. Don’t sweat it. It’s all part of the anonymous forum experience.”
His comment, which was graciously received, was in response to my earlier comment which read “You know boss, this stalking, trolling and spamming bullshit from this clown is really starting wear thin. Just so you know.”
Ergo the dilemma…to file a complaint, or not?
Finally…and since the specific commentators involved in this post have not been named, I anticipate that comments from them…on this thread, will not be acceptable. Otherwise this discussion will descend into the pissing contests that many of my discussions with them usually end up.
Thanks for listening, and please keep in mind, that I am not requesting an end to my ban.
On the contrary…I only offer food for thought.
