Simply amazing the ideas that some people have.
At no point did I "moderate" in this thread. I took no official actions as a staff member.
Who said you did?
I defiantly haven`t said that.
I simply pointed out (after being personally attacked - more than once in two different posts and after being told I was talking "rubbish" in an
earlier post) what usually happens to people who post like that.
Now hold up,the very first time you open your mouth on this thread you
said in response to "Where I am, what i am doing, and why".
............"Honestly. Who cares?"............
I`m sure you read DK`s original post in this thread and saw that because of a flood of u2u`s ,so obviously a number of people care and then
throughout your posts insult DK and members here,as though we are all inferior to you,for what wanting to chat or discuss this with DK?
If wild accusations are to be respected as you have made a number of,do you respect the idea that because DK had a lot of u2u`s that you are just
I dont think that would be fair to say either though a case could be put together so`s that some might believe it,but would defend you to,if someone
forced that down your throat.
In fact it did happen and warnings were handed out - but not by me.
People who have been around ATS long enough know that moderators don't usually actively moderate in threads they are actively posting in. And that
was the case here.
Again who said you did?
I know what I said it was along the lines of your opinions of DK was supported by your buddies who are mods.
I`m not accusing you of knowingly being in cahoots,though think its human nature to stick up for buddies.My objection is that fairness across the
board wasn`t happening because of it.
I stated, (quite forcefully because frankly it seems to takes that to get through to some people)
Then please Gools understand that by doing so by the accusations you made are an act of desperation and never the best way to go about it.
, that I was entitled to my opinions and I took it upon myself to pursue my line of questioning with goods reason. There have already been posts about
project blue beam all over this site and there was even a hoaxer who already claimed there was going to be a false flag ET invasion scheduled for this
past August (remember this one?). I've been here almost 4 years and in that time
I've seen every type of depravity you can see on a board. (I even recall one banned member faking a story about a death in the family to gain
One thing I can sympathize with you is, we as simply members (not Mods) have the luxury
of picking topics to read that we dame well pleasey.
Having as a job to read and moderate topics that one may wish to have never had to, does seem to me a real hazard and one your showing signs of.
I liken it to this...
A police officer of a number of years who works a rough beat,while off duty in his day to day routine see`s someone who has characteristics of a
perpetrator he recently arrested or shot,so he shoots this person and his buddies say yeah dont worry he looks suspicious to us as well.
This type of guy needs a break before he damages himself or others or the force he works for.
Want some proof? check back to sizzles post on the page before this one,not absolute proof I agree,buts its more proof than you have brought to the
table with forced accusations.
It looks like either I wasn't "forceful" enough or took the wrong tack because here we are days later and people are still posting to whine about
me rather than discuss the topic.
Speaking of whines,your post can be viewed the same.You want your cake and eat it as well,you want to be a member,yet dont like it when your called
out to be a civil one.
Take all the swipes you want at me, the staff and the site if you want or you think that will get you anywhere, but it's clear some people cannot or
will not get past the fact that I have a title in my profile.
Please for your own sake get over yourself,you come here as like "all hail bow to the great Gools"and anyone who disagree`s with me is a whinger and
then complain when people turn their backs bow and show you their buttocks.
This is why when people become mods on this board their participation goes way down.
In particular threads maybe,it just depends how they participate,if you do read a lot here I`m sure you notice moderators having a lot of input and
general discussion and are friends with ats members,police members here have said similar to yourself,though in the real world I have a number of
police friends who dont feel that way,though some do,maybe there are other problems to cause that which they feel?
If I can pick a great example imo Lombozzo`s thread about what happened when he witnessed a pack of bullies harassing a defenseless guy,this is
something I myself seem to witness and be involved in a lot through my life and take things upon myself to stop in real life,I dont like it who ever
they are or what status they hold,not being a hero here,its wrong and I hate it.
People who are making such claims in this thread are jumping to conclusions (yet again).
My my and what do you call your accusations in this thread,I know what I think they are desperate disruptive comments which proved and helped
nothing.Further I`d be surprised if DK ever came back here because of it,so feel free with your thoughts on being a super hero deny ignorance for the
whole of ATS,though any proof of what he`s doing because he
believes will probably not surface.
Good job super hero,if you had of been more civil and found he is actually doing what he says,I would hope you would have treated him differently,as
in tried to make him question his beliefs for his own health.
There are people here who want to believe soooooo badly that they are willing to suspend all of their critical thinking skills to jump on any
bandwagon that comes along. They seem upset that I "ruined the fun" or somehow prevented them from posting or discussing something.
This is drama from you and I suspect you know it,point out and genuinely prove this please,if it were true which I have not seen,other than people
looking into the technology that has been researched regarding anything close to which he thinks will happen,which has been a bit interesting imo,I
dont see the harm in that.
and also say to maybe let you know how strongly my opinions are on all this DK stuff,you Gools would believe it before myself.
What's the solution?
But I'm not about to "keep my tongue in my head" (as one poster put it) to appease the thin skinned who can't separate the official action of a
moderator from their personal participation or who feel that staff should "let things go" for the fun of it.
I don't think any other staff member would or should do the same.
Play fair and to the rules of the site.
I dont know about all mods here enough to know 100%,but the members I do know that I have seen that were selected to become mods, already had my
respect,that says a lot to me for those who select them.
I then am left with little doubt you should be any different then,though I haven`t seen it in this thread or especially the post in which I`m
replying,given there was plenty to learn from many members who have expressed their disagreement towards the way you have posted yet you cannot see
anything that was positive criticism,just a pack of whingers.
