      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?

Recommended Posts

Hmm, I wonder what would happen if spray was shut down for a day?

Would the other boards start to fill up with shit like spray?

You want to beat me to death? This, surely, is cause enough for BANISHMENT!

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.

 

"Moods are for cattle and love play"

 

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??

 

You like many others here continue to push a line of acceptability, or inacceptability, that I think is more then clear. We tolerate of a lot of crap here, but things along the lines of bashing of gays, racism, and children molestation is not tolerated. You opinion is welcome, your hatred is not. We have said it before and I don't feel like I have to say it again, this is something that I think should be assumed.

 

In your case you have been added to the list of persona non grata.

Hey Jon, if gay bashing is on the list of no-goes, maybe you ought to look at the thread in Freshiez on the subject of gay ski week in Telluride. I tried to incite with sarcasm last night to get the thread pulled, but there it sits. thumbs_down.gif

Why would I be reading a thread about a gay ski week? I ski but I'm not gay. My point is I don't read everything here, in fact today is pretty much the first time I've even had a chance to look at the site all week. If you see something that is inappropriate send a email or PM a mod for that forum.

Does sarcasm usually do the trick? confused.gif

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.

 

My current theory is that the title is all wrong. People expect us to be all "moderate" and polite and considered and shit. If we were to change the label to "Warlord" as in Afghanistan, unprincipled whimsical rogues free to rule their realms as they see fit, you'd all stop bitching about how we're just not Officer Friendly enough for you.

Better take a grammar lesson. A moderator is one who moderates, not one who is moderate. Their job is to remove improper material.

 

Call yourself a warlord and ban away if you want. Delete, move, lock, whatever level of corruption your tiny bit of power incites you to do. If the "warlords" choose to rule by fear I doubt the site will prosper.

 

If you want respect, clarify the rules and live by them. Tell people if they cross the line they'll be banned by IP, not avatar. Sure, some will go to the library or computer lab and keep posting, but most won't hassle with it again. Otherwise, banning is pointless if it's by avatar. Takes 30 seconds to login as another annoyance. Or so I've heard. rolleyes.gif

Okay, I'll be serious.

 

The ip address thing has been used some in the past, but in some instances it has locked out everyone who works at Microsoft or posts from UW. Some people have very stable ip addresses, due to dsl or cable connections I think, but my knowledge on the subject is pretty limited. Anyway, it's not the solution to your problem. One can keep at it, doing away with the new puppets of an individual as they can be identified, but I believe the goal is behavior modification, and only rarely is complete expulsion the desired result.

OW said mods should maybe be called "Warlords" akin to those in Afghanistan.

 

I don't think this is going to work because this would mean Jon and Timmy are eponymous with Osama bin Laden and Mullah Omar.

i think jon and timm@y should have a internet-hosting-cost fundraiser where they basically sell the right to ban people (well, avatars to be precise). they could sell a one time ban ticket for i dunno $10 or something. the banning of high profile avatars could be auctioned off. you wouldn't need any special software, just do it with pencil and paper accounting and pm's.

I think the warlords over there are more accepting of the terrorist point of view than the UN/NATO/Hamid Karzai camp. The UN/NATO/Karzai authority doesn't extend beyond Kabul, apparently.
