Moderators Are HORRIBLE

  • #1
    I am absolutely sick and tired of the moderators on this website. I posted something earlier and got FLAMED by a bunch of entitled, self-righteous morons. As a result, I responded in my own defense. What happens then? I get an infraction from one of the moderators (not that I really even care).

    Moderators, you need to stop discriminating and using a subjective approach to flagging "flaming." If you're going to hand out infractions to me for "flaming," then you better flag others for cussing me out in the same thread. That is complete crap.

    I feel a flagging coming on for this thread. I guess we really have lost our right to freedom of speech. Wait, no, I take that back. I have, because I'm the only one that ever gets flagged. And the funny thing is, I NEVER curse.

    Moderators, re-evaluate yourselves. You're not any better than anyone else. If you're going to flag someone for "flaming," then flag everyone else that's doing it in the thread.

    If you want to flag me, suspend me, or ban me for this post, then feel free.

    This is the internet, there is no freedom of speech. If you have a problem with being flagged, you'd get better result e-mailing the admin and asking what led to it so you can avoid that in the future, or it will bring to his attention that one of his moderators is being unreasonable. Fact is, he or she may not care. Posting here is not a right, and the moderators can abuse you for their own amusement if they please. Welcome to an online community

    ahh, I love lawling at people who think they have free speech on the interwebs.

    Also, yea this would be against the guidelines. If you have a moderator problem I'm sure they want you to PM them.

    Out of curiosity, what makes you think you were the only person who got an infraction? As far as I'm aware, no one but moderators can see anyone's infractions except for their own.

    And yeah, free speech means you can start your own website and the US government isn't supposed to be able to shut you down just because they don't like what you have to say. It has nothing to do with a privately owned website refusing to let you post on it. :facepalm:
    ...and if you disagree with me, you're probably <insert random ad hominem attack here>.

    This is a forum, you do not have any rights but the rules the owner/admins set up.

    Happened to me as well, defending someone elses position against people flaming him and i get flagged for it, just means i will post less and stop recommending the site to people that need help...

    Thumbs up for them trying to spread arcane sentries out a bit more.

    Arcane + Horde was like trying to play laser tag against 5000 midgets hopped up on caffiene and diet pills.

    Well you made this public so I'll address it here.

    You started a thread, and when it spiraled quickly out of hand you let loose calling everyone " life-hating, pathetic narcissists" "overgrown babies" "scrubs" and "entitled liberals". So yeah I closed it and yeah I gave you a infraction for it.

    This seems to all stem from your either inability or your own choosing not to read the guidelines which are at the top of every forum section.

    Some of the things you would find inside if you read them:

    If you find a post that is inappropriate, report it and they will look into it as quickly as possible. Do not involve yourself. It's simple and keeps you out of flame wars and out of trouble.


    In this case it means don't try to fight fire with even hotter fire. If you think someone is flaming or trolling you, report it don't just feel free to hop on into the flames as well.

    Another useful part would have been here:
    Do not, under any circumstances, publicly discuss moderation about threads, members, social groups, visitor messages, albums, and/or blogs in any public venue. PM Daemaro if you feel you have been unfairly treated.


    I'm not unreasonable and I give people multiple chances to clear their names, plead their cases, or just generally behave more calm and rational.

    This is just a infraction anyways you're not banned, you're not being kept from posting. It's just a reminder to play nice with others.

    Lastly and probably most importantly is this was not your first run in. You were infracted a while back for PURPOSELY spoiling a story for someone, and have had several other occurrences that just slid by because we're forgiving and prefer to have faith that people will learn to get along with each other in a civil manner.

    If anyone has any concerns about moderation on the site, feel free to PM me about it, don't discuss it in public forums because it just becomes a spectacle for everyone and nothing really gets resolved.

    I can't care less about your guidelines and apparently, you can't either because you don't follow them. The fact remains: you gave me an infraction for defending myself from an onslaught of nerds swearing and cursing me out.
  • #9
    Right because the guidelines say not to "defend" yourself in that manner. (I use the word defend loosely because you were realistically just flaming them back.) Other people received infractions too not that it should really be of any concern. Those things are hidden for a reason.

    It also doesn't require the use of curse words to flame someone, simply insulting them is enough.

    Yes, obviously you don't care at all.

    Lemme guess; you're 16 or so? You must be young and/or naive to have such an incorrect understanding of what the constitution defines as "freedom of speech".

    Every forum has one or two of these guys. Whiny, overly-sensitive, perennial victims. They get banned eventually, better to just get it over with quickly.

    This is why we don't discuss these things publicly. :P

    If you have any further concerns or comments feel free to PM me about it.

    Nommingu as well.
