Another new troll added to the list.  I won't say who, as I waited until after I was done being angry this time.  :D

Anyway, this nut is so far left or right I can't tell which.

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."

A lot of the decent posters have chosen to fuck off. I'd love to see the stats on that site over the years compared to now.
I can tell how good of a person you are by how you treat the people you disagree with.

There's a new one that showed up that isn't batshit crazy.  No idea how that happened.  Kimmy's probably PMing this person now to get them here !  :D

Also...

Can we have a secret way to boot people out of here if we collectively agree that there's no possibility of productive discussion ?

Or maybe just if Kimmy declares unequivocally that she hates their guts ?

In such a case, I would suggest a concerted letter writing campaign to your lord and saviour John M Taylor.

Another crack in the foundation at MLW has me pissed.  I hate sounding off over here about it but there's an anti-Catholic poster over there posting at will.  All the people who usually protest about the double-standard between Islam and Christianity are either stupidly oblivious or complicit, as they are not posting responses.

I can't get an official response, nor can I reply.  If I do, then my reports will be discarded.

I guess I still care.  :( 

It's frustrating - now I found posts explicitly insulting black people.  Once word gets out, the forum will become infested with kooks.  Very sad...

I got the feeling all the sane people at that site were asked to leave a long time ago. Why are you surprised it continues to just be crazy people?

Become? The infiltration happened about 18 months ago, in spite of my warnings and protestations. New people drive the production of radical content, whilst long-term members are complicit in its reproduction by validating those views with support. This is all allowed under a false notion of "free speech," whereby posters are allowed to make all of the racist insane comments they want and those who criticize those views for being racist and/or insane are the ones who face disciplinary action. This is not free speech because that would require the freedom to criticize people's views.

I've made no qualms about pointing out the source of this dysfunction. The primary moderator is a conspiracy-loving anarchist. His perspective on things is why criticism is punished (protects conspiracies) and why trolls are allowed to post insane things without punishment (anarchism and conspiracy bend). If Greg was interested in a functioning forum, rather than a soapbox for racists and radicals, he would have taken the intelligent posters complaints very seriously. He didn't and there you are now, wondering wtf happened to MLW.

I would certainly concur with your comments, especially the one relating to the conspiracy loving moderator. Whenever I used to talk back to one of the whackyest over there I would get sent to the penalty box while he carried on even getting away with hurling insults toward anyone who challenged his "theories". What did waldo call it "shythole"

I think the dominance in bat-shit crazy posters on that site is because you'd have to be bat-shit crazy to keep posting there due to the horrendously shitty moderation and admin work by Sir Charles and Sir Greg.  Most sane people have left the site, because it sucks.

I like different views, even far-right or far-left or nutty views I'm fine with, but when you moderate the site & posters horribly that's when I'm out.  Keep locking threads without warning because 1 or 2 people are off-topic and I'm out, keep locking threads because 1 or 2 people are breaking the rules and I'm out.  Several other problems besides that of course.

What does “anti-Catholic” entail?

Just recently added another insufferable drooling moron who can't string an idea to an explanation. 

I have 9 ignored users now on MLW

I've recently put the entire MLW website on my ignore list.  ie: I don't post there anymore, I removed the bookmark from my browser, because I'm not supporting crap.
