      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Mommy, why did CC.com ban Dwayner?

This person was interested in how people get "kicked out" (banned). They seemed to think it was a pretty arbitrary process. Is it? I said I thought those who got banned generally deserved it.

 

Your mystery man/woman is asking a question that is common to many of us. Just WHAT ARE THE STANDARDS FOR BANNING? When we study the behavior of those who are banned and those who are not, the logic applied in these considerations is imperceptible. Take for example an all-too-typical offering from one of our finest:

pope you just don't know when to shut the fuck up. why don't you get your pansy ass down here to b-ham and i will give you something to cry about looser. you are just another sheep shagger.

 

Insults, threats, vulgarity, poor sentence structure.....and this wasn't even posted in "SPRAY". I'm very curious to know, have standards been established for guiding the banning decisions, or is it as political as it seems?

 

An associated question is also appropriate. When we register to use the features of this site and to contribute to the discussions, each of us agrees to conditions for participation. Is it possible to point to violations of this code which would seem to justify some of the recent bannings?

It's about the bolts on this one.... Clearly.

 

If you are in support of rap bolting you will never be banned and if you are a so called PNW well known climber you will get a featured forum as Peter Puget has.

 

Bummer.

I'd say that poor sentence structure is an unforgivable sin.

 

Winston Churchill, after receiving a Minute issued by a priggish civil servant, objecting to the ending of a sentence with a preposition and the use of a dangling participle in official documents, Churchill red pencilled in the margin: "This is the sort of pedantry up with which I will not put."

Grounds for banning? That would cut the cc.com traffic by a healthy fraction.

There pope, is that better? The little nurd guy was supposed to be there so you'd know it was a facetious statement.

Don't make fun of the kid in the short bus, catbird. It's not his fault he's like that.

Pope this is for you

 

Ezekiel 25:17. "The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of the darkness. For he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know I am the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon you."

Fuck off.

 

Dawyner- I dont see eye to eye but respect him as the man he is and his beliefs. IF I agree or not with them is another matter. To ban him is just shitheadclimbers.com

It seems to me that D's banning had more to do with the repeated beating of the dead horse than about the subject matter itself.

 

I don't even think it was because his arguments were faulty, inconsistent, and full of bombast. I think it was all about the poor dead horse. The thing is dead, please, please stop beating on it.

is this some kind of religious climber's chat room?

 

is there a HIDDEN AGENDA to the seemingly random manipulation of CC.com by the man behind the curtain?

 

biblical revelations explaining this shit? WOAH, stop the cart!

Ezekial???

That was Quentin Tarantino you bonehead!

 

Dwanyer was banned because he showed us for the hypocrites we are. We love bolts, but we hate ourselves for needing them.

The reason for banning purely has to do with the mood the moderator. Like for instance if I'm in a good mood I will just send the person to PM politely asking them to knock it off. On the other hand if I am in a mood like I am today, which seems to be a reoccuring theme, I really don't give a shit what you think and will ban people just so I feel better. I don't know what it is about banning people, maybe the sudden rush of endorphines from my pituitary gland, that makes it so fun.

Why'd Necro get banned? Did it make you hard, when you hit the button and cut him off from the rest of the world??

It should be noted that none of us except Jon and Timmy "own" this site. It is at their whim to ban, unban, cuss out, slobber over, spit at, or otherwise through a medium that is of their making.

 

But, moderators, on the other hand...

 

Possible solution: rotating moderators. Or make it an elected position maybe once a year. If we as users feel that any one (or more) moderator is getting too big for his britches or her panties, then we can simply vote the lame Locke out of his/her office.

 

But Jon and Timmy shall lord supreme. Gods to us ordinary cc.com mortals.

lets add banning to the list of topics that have been beaten to death and quit wasting time with it.

 

it is an arbitrary decision. yeah sometimes i'd like to know why but since jon and tim haven't set any standards for it it's a waste of time to argue about it.

Do you feel the same way about the Holocaust?
