unfortunately for SO and the Mods:
You cannot quantify or classify a medium that is solely based upon oppinion. words here are based upon oppinion for the most part, unless backed up by
scientific evidence, and with political science and political play, there is rarely any "law" to use as a foundation for these bannings that will
fortunately for SO and Mods:
they run the joint and they make the rules. therefore they can say who can and cannot stay based upon their oppinionated vantage of oppinionated
so bottom line it is another means of removal from this place.
ATS has slowly but surely turned to what it was bound to be. entertainment value only.
this is a place for entertainment, best to observe, better to leave alone.
i have been a part of many online forums. everything from physics to finance, news to media, and it all ends up the same. moderators run amuck, drunk
with power, imposing thier almighty will at the expense of the weak. and...
through dumb, uninformed, biased, illtempered, and unfair moderators running around chomping at the bit to ban the slightest infraction, and sitting
fat and lazy behind their almight keyboard of banishing, the truly intelligent and caring members who actually put forth meaningful and objective
content eventually leave or find themselves banned under the thumb of the power drunk, and the fat and uncaring moderators laugh and smile at the weak
screams of the people they unjustly destroy, and grow more and more pious at the ignorant who praise thier injustices.
and when it all begins to spin out of control, that is that the few people who are sick of the wrong doings begin to complain as they see the people
whom they joined the site to listen to dissapear, the site owner reigns down firey wrath and empowers the moderator further, instead of employing
fresh and fair moderators who are willing to spend time and do what it takes to keep the forum running as an informative site, and to keep valuable
members around to groom other members to become positive and informative influences on other members.
i am sure that there are some who will take this thread as offensive. there are others who will not.
to the moderators that are offended by my words, it would seem that you lump yourself with those whom this thread is meant to offend, and perhaps you
should take the time to examine what type of person you are. rethink how you use your power. look AT the people you moderate and not down upon. and
for those who are not offended... yet... you too should look at yourself and how you use the power that you are given, and make sure that you are not
acting out upon us without power in a manner unbecoming.
and to the SO
be wary that your precious site does not become laughable. if you want your site to remain credible and meaningful to those who view it, place more
stock in the everyday poster, because without them your site would not be... well... anything. fancy graphics and tons of mods mean nothing in the
land of forums without posters. using phrases like we dont care about your whining lays the foundation for us "whiners" to feel not only
unappreciated, but uncared for. if you dont care about our whining, then with all due, and no undue, respect... i dont care that you are pissed. you
get where i am coming from? or perhaps i am wasting my time with this.
all in all...
i suppose i will end up on the BRAC list over this, and my name and all the applauses that i have recieved for valuable input will vanish into thin
air. pr perhaps not. but either way, i at least know that i can say that i spoke for us. and i didnt kiss ass to the powerful. i have so far, and i
will continue to, speak my mind and call it as i see it.
