Thanks for the Ignore List Idea
« on: October 01, 2017, 03:48:06 pm »
Just recently added another insufferable drooling moron who can't string an idea to an explanation. 

I have 9 ignored users now on MLW

2 left wing
6 right wing
1 batshit wing

I can imagine after being a moderator for so long it's exciting to be able to use the ignore function, but if you keep hording like this the next thing you know there is nobody left to talk to. 

Just speaking from experience.  :)

The ignore function doesn't work for status updates. And you have to be logged in all the time for it to work, and I spend a lot of time in incognito mode. That's the only way I can read the New York Times without paying for it.
So the only real cure for never having to burn your eyes on the concentrated stupidity from particular posters at that site is to stay far away. I have found this one to be getting better and better and has in many ways surpassed the current state of the original. But in terms of growing this site, I don't think there are any worthwhile posters left at the old site to pillage.

+1 ignore.  This time for somebody who tells me I am supposed to back up his fucked up lies. 

Why are there so many more fucked up conservatives on MLW than liberals ?  I will grant you that the liberals I have banned are more fucked up than the conservatives though...

Since I'm always looking for balance, I'm also entertaining the suggestion from Argus that liberals are quicker to moralize.

I'll say this - morality is political, and outright rejection of another citizen's morality doesn't make for a way forward.  Watching this meta-issue moving forward...

Sigh.  After almost making it 10 years (tomorrow) from my first warning I have been warned twice and now suspended from posting, for this:

Ok, interesting.  I'll have a look.  Thanks to Conservative posters like you, it's possible to put a shape to these suggestions.

Notable that the original poster shut up when I asked him for ideas, and was left holding his pants as usual, while you came in with some lucid thoughts.  Thanks again.

Is that so bad ?  I don't get it.  My PMs aren't being responded to either.   I'm not complaining about the moderation just the lack of responsiveness.

You said "Conservative posters like you" so obviously that's a personal insult. /s

By the way, you are complaining about the moderation. You're complaining about the responsiveness. You're raising issues that others have been raising for the last several years. Let him help you by providing the response you will get in advance:

"Like it or fuck off."

Nooooo.  Maybe /s means sarcasm.

To be more specific: I'm not complaining about interpretation/application of the rules.  I think no response is worse than any response.

More likely the comment about "holding pants" for the other poster.

Also, if moderation is driven by complaints then who is most likely to have complained?   

I'm thinking it really sucks to be the only moderator.
Discussion is impossible with someone who claims not to seek the truth, but already to possess it.

Obviously a pussy.

I didn't know you got warnings.  I thought you were "the one who knocks".

Irony.  ::)
