What if ScepticOverlord turned out to be a highly sophisticated AI would that change your view?

I got a better idea:
Let's leave the running of this place to those who are currently running it. They are human, but are doing a very good job. Show me a better run forum!


EXACTLY!

Lets leave the running of the board to those who are doing it now.

Unless your a member of DISC, or a mod, super mod, or other admin, the inner workings of the board and the way it is run shouldn't be of concern. and the DISCers don't run anything.... thats all up to the mods and admin.

soon we're going to need a spin-off forum just for discussion of why banned members were banned. I can see it now:

The Ban Hammer Arena
Upset about a banning? Pout about it here!

Always good to see universal dissent amongst the masses, it reassures me in an odd way. I think the unspoken thought is "what if something is being hidden by banning a member" or "what if they were banned unjustly?"

Ive have yet to see an example of an unwarranted banning, but I have definitely seen cases of extreme tolerance (painfully so), where an obvious plea to be banned went unfulfilled.

ATS Monkeys, not just for banning anymore


You're right..In the begining when I had just joined this great site..I had recieved a couple of warnings about the too much quoting and inconcistencies with my links and some copy and pasting issues..I was new to the system..and one day I did feel like just giving up..and asked to be removed..However the staff,gave me another chance and I must say I'm very glad that did..It might have been an impulsive moment I had..but they still saw that my mistakes were probably justified as I had just been new to the site..:shk:
But I can most definatly say that they do not take it lightly upon themselves to just dump someone and end of story..they did look at my case and saw that I had room for improvement..So I say Thank You All to the ATSmods and I have no doupt in their capabilities to run this site as well as they do...and yes they are also just humans and if any mistakes would have happened in excluding someone,I'm sure that when the person involved would have bothered to bring the isse up again with them ,they would have checked it out once again and if it would be unjustified they will take the necessary actions to fix it..
I'm however surpriced that this thread is still running,because really it should'nt have taken more than ten posts to get this sorted..maybe not...:bnghd:

No way. Never. Not going to happen. Is that clear? This opens up a deep and time-consuming drama-pit where this banned member will attempt to return and "clear his name". No. We're not going there. We have experience with this, and that idea is not for ATS.



Well, just out of curiosity, what about the other side? Like members who were banned and camed back. One even to be actually responding to this thread - ROTFL


And don't think we haven't notice other member of the Unit sign on the same day -

This is a boots on the ground operation soldier, and SkepticOverlord is on the front lines, I'm not to crazy about his uniform (rough, scratchy wool is the only thing a soldier should wear), but at least he doesn't need a haircut.

Dismissed.

This is a subject I could really care less about, I just love the first mods response... much alike our governments... lol ..
You just concentrate on what we feed you and we'll continue to feed you...
Concentrate on the topics and discussions and we'll keep things workings..
Concentrate on your work and your family and we'll take taxes and give you bonuses and a false sense of protection...
Sorry I just love relating things.........
Really you guys go nuts, I don't care why you do what you do, I'll be passive.... Your tests are complete, you can't even get us to rebel on a website.. lol hahaha

There was a new post from some paedophile a couple of hours ago...I was just getting ready to respond to his "logic" when the post disappeared.

Probably just as well, but I did have a few choice words for the "gentleman"...

Was he, by any chance, just an alter-ego of Voice_of_doom? lol...

This guy is always looking for any chance to attack the forum administration. Maybe he needed a new name to do his mischievious work. Should have been more imaginative.

What? This topic isn't dead yet? Guess there's not much else to do around here.

WOW WOW some really over sensitive people on this site.I only wanted to know if we could get a list of reasons a member gets banned.

If when someone gets banned you just wrote next to Banned the reason eg pervert,homophobic,idiot,made threats,prat,biggot, etc would satisfy my curiousity

This is for the unintelligent members who believe they are blessed with an IQ
As for monitoring this site yes fine no l don`t have a problem with the policing of this site if l had one l would vote with my feet shut the hell up and leave.Even intellectuals can get fun from posting a few insults

yea, that's real mature. you must be one of the 15 year olds on the board. because thats a really immature comment.

it's not policing. it's moderating. no one gets arrested, no one gets fined. theres terms and conditions to follow, and someone needs to enforce them, constantly and consistently, and that is what the damn fine leaders of this board do.
