It should have been left IN SITU where it transpired/started, so the full context was available for due diligence by other observers/actors. Glad to see my exposure/complaints have made you rethink your previous arrogantly 'dismissive' and prejudicial approach to the VICTIM's side of the story. Thanks for doing the right thing at last, Trippy, Tiassa. kudos for that at least! Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image! I have experimented by engaging the CONVENIENT TROLLS you have been proven to favor as a means to frame and sbotage and finally 'excuse' your prejudicial bans against the victims and letting the trolls to get away scott free or just a slap on the wirst for show. It's been obvious, Trippy, to all except insensible trolls and their exploiting mods. Remember when you even admitted (in one of dmoe's thread IIRC) that you 'engage your targets in conversation and string them along so you could eventually have an excuse to ban them? And the SLANDERS and LIES and PERSONAL FRAMES by the trolls you 'run with' and 'exploit for entrapment' is OK with you? LOL And what I have observed about your (and certain others) actions/abuses as mod-troll gang is proven fact by experiment, not slander. In fact, out of your own two-faced mouthing you condemn yourself not long ago... You effectively and unambiguously ADMITTED therein to employing ENTRAPMENT TACTICS from your MOD position for the intention of targeting and banning. You even intervened in that thread without any due cause and intimidated the posters concerned by that very intervention! And when I called you out on it, you 'flagged me' and intimidated me! Even when I PM'd you as recommended by admin, in order to reasonable discuss and have you reconsider the facts, you just DENIED any wrongdoing on your part and just 'blew me off' arrogantly in the confidence of you having the power and 'mod mates' in your prejudicial version 'pockets, so that no matter where I went from there, I, the one who called YOU out for abusing the mod power/system like that, was behind the eight-ball and couldn't get anyone to TAKE YOU TO TASK because no-one in your 'mod pockets' was prepared to DOUBT YOUR WORD and actually look into the matter properly and discuss the matter/evidence with ME. So please don't pretend anymore that the system was fair to the complainant, and wasn't being abused by the mods who are supposed to keep up the spirit and standards of fair play. Won't wash anymore, Trippy. Self-delusion if you continue thinking no-one has been watching and recording every abuse you and your mod-protected 'convenient troll' gang has been up to contrary to the rules and spirit of open science discourse on the matters' merits, and not the person's reputation 'sabotaged/framed' by the mods/trolls for intimidating/banning. The problem is not that there is lax moderation in the Physics/Maths section lately; it's that when YOU DO INTERVENE, it's obviously out of PERSONAL BIAS and PREJUDICIAL 'version' of 'excuses' for doing so, which have no regard for all the facts in the context. You immediately CHOOSE to sanction the VICTIM who has engaged the TROLLS who have been let loose to sabotage and bury discussions in their troll crap, while you and your troll mates accuse others of doing it? Has it not occurred to your simple mind that IF the trolls disn't bait and repeat silly challenges and other 'tactics; of evasion, which then FORCE in self defense the victim to repeat his comments and so be brnded as 'spamming' thereby, then there would not need to be such repetitious exchanges on EOTHER 'side' of the discussion. First get rid of the trolls baiting and creating/repeating the 'framing' challenges and personal accusations etc etc, then one can more readily see and act against any other poster who is still repeating without cause. Too simple for your simple mind? No. It's because YOU and your TROLL mates have a baiting/targeting agena to cause such situations so you can find some 'excuse' for banning/sanctioning/intimidating etc the VICTIMS....while the trolls you explot in your ADMITTED ENTRAPMENT TACTICS are rewarded by further freedom to sabotage and personally prejudice discussions! Stop pretending to yourself and others, Trippy. You have been caught out and called out before this latest instance. Being 'lenient' and/or 'appeasing' types of crooked mods like you and your other troll-mod gang of old 'associates behind the scenes' is a fools play. Only direct EXPOSURE to the light and excision from power positions will do. Anything less merely prolongs the infestation and loss of integrity 'downhill slide' for any site which still has within its 'trusted sphere' such obviously UNSUITABLE CHARACTERS for such trusted position/power. Can you imagine how your VICTIMS feel day after day of your selective' intimidation and threats and 'censor in advance' thereby? Your interventions have bee proven PARTIAL (obviously intentionally as proven already more than once, because you always ignore the trolls who caused the situation, and they get away with a 'slap on the wrist' just for show in case anyone is watching you at your worst modding silliness), UNINFORMED (you admit you don't always read back fully to ascertain who is the culprit who should be banned and just ban the victim instead) and just plain PREJUDICED from 'old PERSONAL/EGO baggage' and new personal agendas). Your selective 'interventions' intimidate and censor proactively, but you don't see anything 'wrong' in your selective intervention as 'mod' when it suits YOU and your 'stalking horse troll gang' agendas and prejudices and tactics. How lame to keep pretending you are in any way still fit to hold the respected and honorable role of MODERATOR at this or any other fair science discourse site! My advice, Trippy: Give up the troll-mod-gang powerplay route, and just concentrate on getting back some of that personal/professional integrity and respect you have been losing for so long as part of that 'relic' FORUM MAFIA gang started so long ago by the crazy "dave" the Doughnut whose 'insanity and insults and plain madness of mind and character is still plainly posting at physforum with the permission/fear of the sole mod there (you know who) who has lost all credibility as impartial observer/commentator long ago (again, he was proven and witnessed to EGREGIOUS abuses of his power to frame, hack and otherwise delete/distort the objective posting record to 'cover his ass' when he was challenged and exposed. How can any self-respecting 'moderator' allow the sort of personal crap and insane disruption to discourse at physforum in this day and age, and still pretend to himself he is in any way personally/professionally 'trustworthy'? Insensible types are like that, no matter how well 'educated' they think they are. Obviously, such 'education' missed instilling a sense of integrity and fair play in that one...and in the FORUM MAFIA troll-mod 'gang' he once openly and cynically exploited/fostered over there. The further that type of character is kept away from ANY POSITION of POWER, the better for science and society everywhere/when in future. Good luck to you, Trippy, whatever comes after this 'mod' stint. Anything is better for your character than this 'enablement' of the less-than-better-side of your character. Nothing personal,; it's the principle of the thing, and the greater good for science and society that I have spoken up and exposed such things as these across the internet sites. Wish you well for your future, Trip. Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image!
