Just wanted to pop in and let you know what a great job you're doing here Chez. Heels are all nicely clicking and boots appear to be freshly licked.

It's hard to have a discussion when you're trying to stifle free speech.

You're discussion is dead on arrival because I was born and raised in the US.

MODs please sanction this poster if he continues to claim I am not American without providing indisputable evidence otherwise. It shouldn't matter were a poster is from. Everyone should have the opportunity to voice his opinion without experiencing such xenophobic bigotry.

I have just one word to say to this poster....GULLIBLE!!

The argument is absurd.

That being said, if you get rid of those two get rid of jalfrezi.

You seem like a dumb American with your head stuck up your ass. This Nationalist right wing thing is not just an American phenomenon it is all over the free world right now.

People wanted it more PUey. My strong personal preference is to cut out the trolling and LC posts (and take other measures as required to keep it on topic and engaging) but the rules are going to apply to everybody equally. The forum participants get a big say in where the lines should be so do all speak up.

Well chez, you're once again faced with the dilemma that if they're not trolling, they're so stupid they might as well be.

Consider somebody going to a European 'football' forum and arguing about who the best quarterback is currently. That's what you're dealing with here.

Re: Politics v7.0 Moderation thread

The problem is chez' base is posters too ****ty for the regular population, he can't admit that so he has to argue they aren't bad posters, just posters oppressed for their views. It's all horse**** though but it's the bed he's made.

The leftists in America are so racist!" etc. They're blatantly pushing far right American vitriolic propaganda in the forum, and they're not American. They don't care about having any sort of honest debate, they just want to bad mouth American leftists. There is absolutely nothing constructive about this.

It's like this: I'm not Russian. But if I were to post on what was largely a Russian forum, about the topic of Russian politics, and I was continuously and ferverously posting pro-Putin stuff, or anti-Democratic stuff furthering Putin's agenda, as if I were Russian, it would be pretty suspicious of me. Don't you agree? I would have to have some sort of agenda, don't you agree?

A poster's value to the forum is an entirely subjective thing, and different people will have different opinions. I'm curious if you would take off your mod hat, and respond just as a poster, what value does mongidig and JiggyMac bring to the forum?

I don't think people railing to close the forum bring much value to the place fwiw.
I suggest we return to this topic when Well Named is back.

I'm probably not going to take my hat off about individuals but personally I much prefer constructive discussions.

Re: Politics v7.0 Moderation thread

I think you should ban every single person who isn't American, an SJW-level "Liberal", and all White Straight Males.

Then people like Cows will be happy. We should give them their own country, actually. When they get invaded and taken over we can just point and laugh.

Get rid of former mods too. Patient 0 and patient 1 over there need to go.

Can you point me to one poster who is politically left and non-American, but presents themselves as American and posts nothing but vitriolic left wing propaganda?

Regarding the rules, there's not one regarding sock puppet propaganda accounts. So if there were such accounts, which I strongly suspect mongidig and JiggyMac of being, then they wouldn't be breaking any rules by conducting their psy-ops freely on this forum. Don't you think a lack of such a rule is a problem?
This surprises me from you. I see you as leaning far left, but you always bring facts and arguments. That seems inconsistent to me to your now stated aim to remove people based on their views.

Is pretending to be someone with the purpose of creating racist acrimony and spreading racist misinformation a view?

Cows has turned into an extremist.

It appears after I get done trashing people they become more extreme. I might be to blame. Maybe I shouldn't choke-slam people so hard when arguing against them. They get distraught and many of them start foaming at the mouth.

Re: Politics v7.0 Moderation thread

When we have deleted such posts in the past, people complained that the deletion "protected" the poster since nobody could see what a crappy post it was after the deletion.

So the mods have generally adopted a public warning system for crappy posts. If the poster continues to violate the forum rules, then ever-increasing timeouts could result.

(And, yes, I acknowledge that the threat of a possible future timeout is fairly weak sauce.)

When a post is so vile that it needs to be deleted the poster should get turbo banned.

There is merit in that viewpoint. We will take that idea under advisement. (And I really mean that, not just saying it as a perfunctory reply.)
