Title: Goodbye CPE
Post by: Shady on April 15, 2020, 11:41:37 am
I just wanted to say goodbye.  Iíve enjoyed my short period of time here.  But I canít participate in a forum where people that youíre discussing issues with can arbitrarily decide to delete your posts.  I enjoyed catching up with old faces, especially kimmy and waldo.  Yes even waldo.  Iíd love to stay, but itís obvious that certain opinions in this forum will be handicapped, simply because somebody doesnít like their point of view.  Take care, and stay safe.

Several people on this forum are intolerant of opinions to the right of their own.  Diversity is our strength, unless it's diversity of opinion, then it's STFU & go eff yourself.

These opinions trigger you guys so hard the insults just start flying out of your mouths.  So much anger, resentment.  Debate turrns to arse when emotions get involved.  I don't blame JMT for not moderating this place himself, he is not a daycare worker.

measured intolerance versus stooopid moderation. Deleting anyone's posts shouldn't be... tolerated! Of course, certain members can be a 'bear' at times; engage to a point - if you're painfully outmatched/outwitted/bettered, then pull a member Shady (i.e., "agree to disagree"). In any case, if you believe you're being repeatedly spammed (as was the said excuse given), ignore it and move on... what point does deleting another member's posts make?

member SelfIso, if only we all had your mettle to never... ever... throw down an insult!  ;D

Funny. I delete his posts from my status updates on MLW all the time just to be irritating.  I think getting trounced by waldo scared him off.

How do you delete someoneís posts.
Title: Re: Goodbye CPE
Post by: Bubbermiley on April 16, 2020, 11:53:00 am
You can only do it in your own status updates. It's a passive-aggressive way to be annoying, but that can be fun.

I'm sure shady will be much happier over yonder where the support, for instance, for trumpty dumpty remains as strong as ever, regardless of how embarrassing/silly/flip floppy his press briefings have become. BC will console him.

That's ignorant. Starting a thread then trying to manipulate the responses is BS.

Post by: JMT on April 16, 2020, 06:31:20 pm
I made it policy here quite long ago now that threads are policed by their creator.  I only step in if something is reported...and still I usually don't.
Title: Re: Goodbye CPE
Post by: wilber on April 16, 2020, 10:24:40 pm
Well, if you can't handle some of the responses you might get, don't start one in the first place.

Let the record show I haven't moderated my threads for drift... Or (I think) ANYTHING.

All of you who think I am/was a power hungry dick are hereby wrong.

Now, let's please get some more centre-right posters please.

Thatís because youíre not terrified of hearing alternate opinions.

Good news everyone!

Iíve been advised by members of the forum, to instead put the offended echo chamber loving troll/snowflake on ignore.  Thus allowing me to continue discussion with the non troll/snowflakes of the forum.  I think Iím going to try this advice out, as most in this forum seem to be open to various points of view.  I donít like putting people on ignore, because I like to hear all points of view, but in this particular case, it might be worth it.  Take care and stay safe everyone!  Sincerely,

Shady

Just do what I do.  Ignore people.  If you actually put people "on ignore", you miss some good stuff.  It's half the fun.

How so?

If Granny left and came back and posted about it, would you tell her to shut-up and say she's a troll?

So what if he is a troll, none of us have an obligation to engage if we choose not to.

If she was doing the same blubbering with the same trolling-history as Shady, why wouldn't he?

Look, if I wanted to silence him, it'd be pretty easy for me to do.  I approved his membership knowing who he was.  He can post what he wants...and so can I.

I volunteer to start a thread wherein I will only remove violence, porn or Russian political spam from unknown posters.

Or anything else I want to that I haven't thought of, but not opinions...
