So recently it came to my attention that I'm a lot more racist than originally believed. This is a private joke between me and the mods.

But more importantly, SE has no business being on 2p2. It's run much differently. There's freedom of speech, and the almighty pursuit of hedonism. People interact much more organically there.

But most importantly, it's not a safe place for outsiders. People who wander in there usually don't make it out alive. It's not fair for them to have their internet experience ruined in that fashion.

This is much less of a plea than it is a plight.

FREE SE.
This was not deemed threadworthy in ATF...

Mods assemble like Voltron to counterattack regardless of how valid (or not) the poster's issues are. It's a feeding frenzy to defend other mods and it's pretty sad. Someone recommended that ATF should have an ombudsman and I think that's a great idea.

FWIW, I recently posted the following in the mod forum (about a month ago) in response to a question asked of my by Rapi.ni. It was largely ignored (though I didn't really expect a response to be fair, and whatever, I'm given ample leeway to do what I deem fit in SE which is 90% of what I care about anyways, though I really do wish OOT was modded much better than it is).
1) Thanks for sticking up for me, though I don't see why people care about infraction points. But, since 100 pts = lifeban (I assume) and the amount given seems entirely arbitrary...I mean, it's kind of a messed up system.

For example, I have a 20 point infraction for accidentally leaving out a 2p2'ers poker screen name during a p2p transfer. I understand why that rule is in place, but I've done dozens of them and have a solid rep, and a couple slip ups and I'm banned from the gambling community forever, or will have to spend a bunch of time convincing people that acct 2 = acct 1 (which is an lol thing all together).

I laugh when mods say "you're getting points for making my job more difficult." Lol ok, you'd trade years off your life to keep your no-pay internet patrol job though.

2. r.ap.ini ruined the MCC (det casino) thread. It's a really small player pool (12 tables), so it's obviously going to be hard to keep topics of discussion solely centered on where the good parking is and how much they're charging for Labatts now ($4 draft, gross). So it went from a bunch of us who play regularly clowning around about nothing besides THE ACTION IN THAT POKER ROOM, to who knows what, but apparently it was too off-topic for one mod and none of the active posters. It's a shame because it could've been fun.

3. I don't understand ATF. I get it's purpose, and some of the gripes and alerts are reasonable. But the majority of the threads are obvious idiotic trolls garnering many more postings than deserved.

4. If the hate for SE mods is for the lolz, that's cool. But you guys do a great job. And by that I mean you eliminate the horse pr0n and ban people who threaten each other's lives. I imagine if someone came to you legit hurt/offended over something questionable you'd make an attempt to rectify it or w/e.

I couldn't imagine modding the other forums being any more fun than janitorial work at an adult movie theatre (clerks), given the tone in which all my infraction PMs are sent in, and how bad most posters are.

You had Right Angle Sports and Anthony Curtis (both of Sports Betting) totally discredited by SB regulars who posted in ATF; in both cases Mason/David were very willing to listen to facts and do their own research on the subject. So, I dunno - seems to work OK in my experience.
yeah Id say ATF is 55% lolposters, 25% lolmods, 10% good stuff, 5% loladmins, 5% pla.ynade aids.

Great post Clark. Blindness pack mentality of mods on this site is one of the worst parts of it.

Back when I would read ATF it would happen every time someone made a mod complaint, as you said.

Tuq was always one who stood out as one who would rightfully stand up to the masses and swim against the stream.

The only thing worse is being the child of a pornstar. I feel bad for those kids, you want to jerk off like everyone else, but you're constantly one wrong click away from seeing your mom getting DPed.

I still think the weirdest thing in that thread by far is that Charles Mingus has a guide to toilet-training your cat.

It was killa, deleted every post since a bump earlier this month and then evidently locked it. That about sums up OOT modding for you. I guess we're lucky it didn't get deleted.

The non SE mod talk made me curious to see if r.apini had ever posted in SE before



Damn. I can't imagine what posting in B&M is like.
