Answer for Alex213
    #5827280 - 07/06/06 01:16 PM (14 years, 10 months ago)

The sole purpose of this thread is to answer Alex213's question posed here -- http://www.shroomery.org/forums/showflat.php/Number/5827181#Post5827181 -- rather than to derail the "Welcome Redstorm thread any further.

Quote:

Phred: If I'm understanding you and Alex213 correctly, your claim is not that I enforce the rules against "Lefties" too strictly, but that I don't enforce the rules against "Righties" strictly enough?

Alex213: Where did I say this?









You said it here, Alex213 -- http://www.shroomery.org/forums/showflat.php/Number/5826734#Post5826734 --

Quote:

Alex213 -- However I can't see anything wrong with having a mod on the left for balance and to prevent any "unconscious" favouritism. I've certainly seen examples of "leftist" posters recieving public warnings for behaviour "rightist" posters wouldn't recieve public warnings for because of their friendship with a mod.

I will allow this thread, as long as it stays mature and doesn't degrade into name calling, etc. Personally, I feel that Phred does a damn good job moderating a very difficult forum. However, sometimes those of us in positions of authority see things differently than those that are effected by our authority. For everybody involved, let us use the comments in this thread as a learning experience to improve ourselves.

If I end up having to ban somebody because of this thread, it will not be light. This is the one and only warning. Keep the comments respectful and mature.

I'm not kidding. If I ban, it will be a perm ban. Don't push it.

I've said it before, I don't agree with a lot of what Phred says but he does a damn fine job modding this forum.

I don't agree all your political views, but you argue them strongly and well, and made me think and caused me to change my views on occasion.

Although you are sometimes a total asshole with people (sorry Seuss), it rarely not deserved, I guess you have to be, to keep some sanity about the forum and not let it descend into MoonBat-GayLord-Tennis.

Usually, I prefer to start new threads when a topic gets derailed, but this response really could've just stayed in that other thread. Interesting that it was this thread that got derailed, oddly enough, into a "kiss Phred's ass" thread. I guess I'd better pucker up, too.

I have actually hated this forum for years and am just now starting to even consider the possibility of representing my viewpoints here.

I have no idea if this paradigm shift was a result of better moderation and if so, by whose authority it was implemented.

I'm glad I made a post that really offers no insight, whatsoever. :smile:

Moderator....a job I would never want....and a job I could never do.....

I have to say that the freedom of thought, in this forum, is one of the best I have seen. There is reason that people stick around here for 20,000+ posts.......good moderators are one of the reasons....

Fear is the mind-killer.
Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration.
I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
Where the fear has gone there will be nothing.
Only I will remain.”

I gotta be honest, this thread really isn't about politics, activism, or law, so I don't feel the need to strictly maintain adherance to the spirit of the law.

Unfortunately, I don't really care what you "feel" You are still in PAL, and you will treat other members with respect that the rules demand. You can head to OTD if you feel the need to be obnoxious.

If a mod can violate a rule, it makes the flock seem to think that they should be able to slightly bend them as well.

Aside for the ass kissing, and back on-topic.

I can't think of an occasion where Phred has mod'ed something in this forum that was not out of order.

I think he is pretty even handed. I think often lefties tend to be younger and not quite as good as sailing close to the line as the right wingers in this forum tend to do, often successfully provoking an out of order response.

You said it here, Alex213

No I didn't Phred. I said:

However I can't see anything wrong with having a mod on the left for balance and to prevent any "unconscious" favouritism. I've certainly seen examples of "leftist" posters recieving public warnings for behaviour "rightist" posters wouldn't recieve public warnings for because of their friendship with a mod.

It was YOU who said:

If I'm understanding you and Alex213 correctly, your claim is not that I enforce the rules against "Lefties" too strictly, but that I don't enforce the rules against "Righties" strictly enough?

These statements are not the same.

If you wish to discuss your modship take it to another forum. It has nothing whatsoever to do with politics, activism or law.

I realize that, Alex213. That is precisely why I asked for clarification. Your charge that the forum rules are applied unevenly out of friendship and/or political orientation didn't specify a moderator by name, so it is possible you were speaking of actions performed by Baby_Hitler ...or even by Cervantes or Rono or Trendal or Evolving or Jammer or Lana.

bi0's statement shows he had assumed you were including me in your observation. Knowing the high regard in which you hold me, I wasn't so sure, which is why I asked for clarification.

I'm glad to hear his assumption was incorrect.

Quote:

Since your statement has been clarified, and since you don't think my modship should be discussed in this forum, I'll lock the thread.
