Re: SE FAQ and Foodblog

My apologies if this is talking out of turn at all- but my impression is that there's essentially been a long history of frustration with the skypezilla crowd on the parts of the mods/some readers and that this was just the straw what made the Tuqcamel cry.

It isn't like people got banned just for one thing, or that they couldn't have seen this coming. All of those guys were given a lot of rope, probably more than they should have, and they eventually used it.

As far as I'm concerned at this point the burden of proof is on you guys to prove that this happened, otherwise it's just another case of you guys using this forum for anything but sports discussion. And if you don't want to come back that would be great too.
wow, incredible

Dumpy is an affectionate term for someone slightly chunky, while fat is just rude. obviously!

Re: SE FAQ and Foodblog

Man come back from vacations and the mods are coming down with a Goodellian like hammer. I'm with bowens, I miss when stuff was fun around here. Why so serious guys, seriously?

And I'm officially also on the Grizzlies bandwagon. Also need a new avatar - any ideas?

Flyingrat had absolutely nothing to do with the hoax. We legitimately haven't heard from him since Friday

Seriously the SZ crazy conspiracy team is doing way, way more damage to this forum than SZ itself by bringing up the crazy conspiracy theory over and over even after it dies down for a bit. Live and let live guys, live and let live.

Re: SE FAQ and Foodblog

the real issue with tuq trying to blacklist skypezilla is that if u ask almost anyone who posts in tz (which is the best thread in se) to name the top 30 posters who post in tz around half of them will be skypers if not moar. basically it's gonna make tz far worse.

also contrary to tuq's belief, skype doesn't constantly coordinate attacks on se (infact i can only recall two coordinated efforts let alone "attacks" in the over year period that skype has been around. 1 was the troll in pudge's draft and the other was the rat stuff that jus happened). tuq thinks we do other stuff like try to outlevel the entire forum together which is false, infact if u go on skype it's pretty much every poster ****ting on one another. no one brings up their levels or tries to coordinate levels or w/e tuq thinks we do.

another issue is that while skypers do level even with their levels included their isn't 1 skype poster except for flyingrat who is moar wrong than a lot of tz/se posters. in particular guys like tsc (who thankfully doesn't post much in tz anymoar but still brings his wrongness to other threads), seadood, mebenhoe (who is a mod lol) and even bobbo (altho i like bobbo a lot as a poster and some of his wrongness are def levels but still) are way moar wrong than any skyper aside from rat (but rat is legit in level mode 100% of the time). it's ridiculous that these guys can walk around being wrong so much yet never get banned for it while the occasional skype level is pounced all over.

do i believe that those guys are on SZ consistently plotting about how to troll 2p2? no, of course not. but do i believe that since all of those guys have a better place to discuss sports, many of them don't really care about getting banned so their posting has all gone way downhill? yeah, probably.

i've seen this happen before with kipin.net. and while i think the moderation in both cases was perhaps overly harsh, the feeling was, if you have your own place that you like more, don't trash this one.

As a non TZer, I think the incessant whining about TZ is much worse than their inside jokes (except for the whole Ke$ha era, but the mods were nowhere to be found then)

But no one's trashing anything. SE is fine except from this AIDS argument that seems to come up biweekly lately.

unsurprisingly, epipen just admitted that they were conspiring to troll pudge's draft. so is no one trashing anything?

Yes trolling a draft that is just going to end up in a giant trollfest [as all non sports-related, and some sports related drafts do] one time is unforgivable and close to one of the seven deadly sins. GMAFB and quit taking **** so seriously.

Just so we are on the same page, do you mean "bi-weekly" or "semi-weekly?"

Re: SE FAQ and Foodblog

Victor being perma banned is the dumbest thing ever. Close 2nd is flyingrat saying gg life without any known implications then permaed. Wtf is this ****?

Why can't I mod the forum instea of tuq? I guarantee I would be better. People have made me mod in imaginary poster drafts and that's worked out. Where do I apply?

"dear Ryan Beal tuq sucks I don't mod me 1time?" good for a cover?
