    I just love the power hungry. They bloat themselves with so much significance they just can't stand to be held in contempt and told to simply 'leave me alone'. They DEMAND attention!

    LOL! I'll just ignore you Bells and let you waste your time. Willnever treats her with the same contempt, calls mod's like her 'pigs' but its MY posts she 'threatens' with banning or whatever it is as I have lashed out with 'insults'. Its too sweet to be true!

    poor thing
    perhaps we can create a little subforum for dear lucy where she has complete control over the dialog. give her editing privileges. allow her to designate and choose who can respond to her threads and posts

    now
    how does lutopia sound?

    Where exactly did I threaten you with a ban Lucy?

    Can you link it please?

    I gave you a public warning about trolling. But where is the supposed threat of a ban?


    ** Edit to add **

    Maybe I should wait until you finish editing and chopping and changing so that you get the maximum affect? The above I quoted was the original. I think I'll leave it be until you make up your mind.

    So you like to make things up when you don't pay attention?

    Firstly, I did not threaten you with anything, least of all a ban. Again, you misrepresent what has been actually said.

    And secondly, whatever problem you have with me in your mind, keep it there. If you have a problem with my moderation or how I post, report me. But this kind of thing is beneath you.

    Actually no, because that would have made you look even worse than you do now. And you do look pretty bad, as a result of this.

    And?

    My reasons were clear and I offered him the chance to prove his side.

    I am sorry, but I am not here to be 'liked' and be buddy buddy and "LOL" like a tween. If you think I look bad as a result of my decision to ban him, then I know I did the right thing. If you feel it was a bad decision, then you can report me to Plazma. I am sure he will look over Norse's posts and decide if the ban was warranted or not.

    Your petty and aggressive nature can be readily determined from your forum signature and your avatar, Bells... both of which essentially tell us that you're yet another unpleasant individual -- one who relishes any and all opportunities to bicker, fight and argue with strangers. That is very common on forum boards, but if you really thought about it for a moment, then you would realize that desperately rushing headlong into confrontations with people at every turn, as you do, provides far more revelations about the person doing the attacking than it does about those whom they attack.

    Nay, it means that in the likeliest case, you did the wrong thing. Good forum moderators are typically well-respected by all on any given board. You on the other hand, have some definite detractors. That doesn't bode so well.

    If you do not wish to get along with people... then why are you here? Why do you want to moderate a social community? There seems to be an incongruity in what you say you want and the type of persona you actually express here.

    its a pathological obsession. sci constitutes the whole of her world and she will not be content until she is crowned queen of sci

    not that easy eh?


    heaven help us all

    Let me ask you a question. Do you think requesting that he provides proof of his claims are an attack?

    I mean you can go so low as to attack a picture of a cartoon's behind and a care cup signature, but really?

    I did not bicker with him nor with you, even after you called me a pig. Which is ironic when one considers that you are plaintively accusing me of "attacking".

    Now, I had not even addressed you in this thread until you demanded my attention with a fairly aggressive post. Which I responded to you in kind.

    So do you. How does it bode for you? What about for James, Tiassa, Madant, String, Hype, Trippy, etc.. all of whom have their own detractors?

    Do you think that a moderator can only be good if they are respected and liked because they never ever upset anyone or step on any toes or enforce any rules (which can upset some people)?


    I am not here to be "liked". In that I don't see this forum like High School where one just has to be "liked" or popular. If you have a desire to be popular and "liked", then knock yourself out. Go forth and "LOL" it up with the best of them. But that is not me. I take part in discussions and that is it. I moderate when necessary and that is it. If I wanted to be "liked", I would not be a moderator but would instead post solely in Free Thoughts about how cute my arse looked in low cut jeans. Contrary to what you may believe, some of us don't live to be popular.

    Norse was banned almost on the spot, actually. It were ~2 hours after his statement. He was banned probably before he could see anyone "request he provided proof." Nobody expects or deserves so rapid a banning before actually taking the time to see what is up. Everything that has happened since then, including this thread and this second banning that you are small-mindedly doing, seems to have been precipitated by that initial action taken against him.

    James R could have simply said "Norse, I respect your right to hold an opposing view but can you please provide reasoning for why you think hold that view?" That would be have been sufficiently respectful and appropriate as a moderator response. He did not do that, however... and that is pretty bad.

    EDIT: I am talking about Norse's FIRST ban. Everything that has happened since then took place because of the initial and aggressive action taken against norse. His frustration and anger should have been understandable to you.

    Norse was given over 12 hours to post his proof. During which time he posted in this thread about the request I made of him. His first post in this thread starts here:


    He did not ask for an extension. Quite the contrary. In the end he advised he would not be providing any proof whatsoever. If you look at the times, he was posting in this thread over several hours after the request was made and his posts were about my request to him.

    So you were saying that he was banned before he could see the actual request?

    Being a forum moderator is a task suited for people who are generally optimistic about people's behavior and intentions. They usually want to get along with people, because they want everyone else to get along too. They are people who seek harmony, not confrontation. That doesn't seem to describe you, so you should probably convert yourself back to a normal member.

    It doesn't make sense for someone with your type of persona to want a moderator role... that is, unless you want the task of moderator because you seek a status that you feel has been denied to you in your real, everyday life.

    Norse was given 12 hours to post proof before his *initial* ban? I think not. He was given no chance to explain his reasons. Check it out.

    I get along fine with lots of people on here. But I do not go out of my way to "LOL" with the cheerleaders of the forum.

    I don't do nice in how I moderate. I rarely have to moderate, so what exactly does that tell you?

    Of course.

    Because being a moderator on a faceless forum was the pinnacle of my goals in life. I mean I'll forget everything else that I have achieved, including my education, family, job and everything else in my life. Because as a moderator, I have obtained powers and status that even my job simply can never give. My life is now complete.

    Damn, you caught me out.

    I am SUPERMOD!

    You use sarcasm excessively more than most people here. It's a very obvious coping mechanism.
