You didn't solve any problems. You didn't make this place any better. No one but the mods who voted for it wants those guys to be banned. Plain and simple.

Here's more on what I think about that:

bighead,

do you honestly believe we are misinterpreting our jobs? the rules, as posted by the administrators, are available for reading by everyone on the board. those that have been banned repeatedly broke those rules. if our jobs aren't to enforce the rules given to us by the administrators, what are we to do? if you don't believe they broke the rules as written could you please explain your side of things?

The "1337" is all about flaming and baiting. Based on the rules, most of them could have been banned and you know it, but exceptions were made. But no, ban Bipolar even though he's been a great contributor lately, by tallying up all the petty shit he's done way in the past. Faggots.

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention...why is it that, by mere coincidence, everyone who was banned accumulated three warnings in about the same 4-5 day period, and was subsequently voted out. Just in the mood to lay down the law or something?

All of them had 2 warnings already, and then their NSFW posting spree that they went on together was the last. One was also on probation, having been allowed back after being banned before.

But what's the point of explaining it? You'll find a way to twist it around in 5 seconds anyway.

Yeah, those rules were broken before they existed, so your point is moot. You can't have rules introduced in 2008 and expect people who broke them in like, 2005, before they even existed, to be punished for it.

Furthermore, members of the mod team (especially myself...oof) have been reprimanded for this behavior as well.


Oh yeah, I forgot to mention...why is it that, by mere coincidence

I'm gonna have to interrupt right there. Aint no coincidence here, and you know this already.

The rules and consequences are not only common knowledge (especially for people who break the rules as often as they do, amirite?), but they are also posted for everyone to see.

Why are you making so many diversions and instead talking about things that have nothing to do with their direct violations?

...oh, right, because you can't disprove or deny the fact that they clearly broke the rules, instead pointing out whatever positive contributions they made while ignoring the violations. Nice move; I think I'm gonna try that one next time I'm caught speeding.

It's called an analogy. In an analogy, you don't compare the severity of examples, you compare the logic involved. Do you understand?

Oh sweet fuck!

Don't compare the severity of the situations. Compare the fact that both situations have rules that were broken and that one person would attempt to say that while speeding (or posting against regulations) they were still contributing to society by giving a hobo a lift (posting like a normal human). Even though they were doing good the rules were still broken.

I think some days you just decide to be a big bag of douche.

...because you'd then be the one taking the place too seriously? And also, because, like I said, that's just not how analogies work?

I think what you either don't understand or refuse to accept (because it flies in the face of your "argument") is that we don't take this place too seriously. We really don't, but we were approached by the administrators and told very explicitly what we're supposed to do in these situations, and agreed to do 'em. That's not taking things too seriously, that's doing what's asked.

You don't like it, so your way of coping is to just completely refuse to believe it, which is why we have interminable arguments every few days.

...besides, for the love of fuck, there's an entire "Anti-Authority" group. How the hell are the moderators the ones taking things too seriously?

I didn't take this place seriously until I was contacted by the people who run this site last summer. Kind of lit a fire under me to want to help make this place be an awesome community.

Anyway, somebody's got to take it seriously to make it rad enough for all of our efforts to be totally unappreciated and derided by folks like yourself.

Whether they return at all depends on a bunch of different things. Not all will even be allowed back, but I'm personally confident that a few will be allowed back relatively soon. Details concerning their status when they return and how to proceed from there are being worked out/discussed right now.

I don't think Zag should be allowed back at this point. I hate to be a dick, but he of all people should have realize how lenient the mods are here and stopped acting like a 12 year old kid. There's not a single other board I've been on that would have let him come back after the first time, and the fact that he got a second chance at all shows that the mods here aren't dicks and do try to be fair and respectful of people. He blew it, and it's his fault he's banned, not theirs.

I honestly don't get why it's so hard to follow the rules for some people. I mean, they aren't that strict whatsoever, and it's not like you can't have fun and fuck around here while at the same time following them. They aren't restrictive in the slightest, and there's really nothing about them that stop people from having fun, cracking dirty jokes, or whatever. The only thing that they really stop you from doing is intentionally being a disruptive asshole, and I fail to see how that's a bad thing.

Every time I read one of these "THE MODS ARE POWERHUNGRY ASSHOLES!!!" arguments, I can't help but be reminded of a girl I went to high school with who got caught drinking and smoking pot, and then said they only got in trouble because their parents are "fucking Nazis who hate me," and acting like some horrible piece of injustice has been forced upon them, despite the fact that they were doing something illegal. Just reminds me of the lame defense mechanisms I keep seeing here.

Although ZagmenO/Cock Joke does intermitably violate the rules of the forum, it is not his salient purpose. He probably comes online to read about the band and just wants to have fun; I haven't read one thing that he's posted which is malicious or hugely breeching violation. I am not questioning the ban, but I think it is important to consider members who are genuinely big fans of the band carefully, I said the same for Venom when he was banned (maybe to you [Jakebert], I can't remember).

Is there even any way to prevent his return on a different account such as an IP block? I wouldn't put it beyond him to respectfully use a junior for a while and make a tumultuous announcement in a couple of months if his account isn't un-banned.

Little_Miss_1565

While I agree that Zag wasn't as malicious as some of the others, the rules really aren't hard to live with. The AFI board bans fans permanently with no leniency if people demonstrate that they cannot play nicely with others. Nobody wants to ban fans from the message board, but shouldn't fans also have some respect for the people who run the site and not break rules for the sake of breaking them?

IP blocks might not always work. I think if he joined again on a different PC (Different IP) he would slip past.

Jakebert
08-06-2008, 02:51 PM
F@T BANK, I get what you're saying, but you also have to remember that the whole stuff with Zag began more than a year ago, and he still hasn't stopped. There's a big difference between someone who makes some honest mistakes then attempts to learn from it and someone who blatantly keeps doing the same thing over and over again, regardless of the fact that they know better.

And bighead, no offense, but you haven't been here long enough to comment on the situation with Cock Joke. If you notice, we keep referring to him as Zag, his old username, because he has a long history here, and most of it happened before you joined. I'm not going to comment on the other guys, because I haven't been around much in the last 2 weeks and have no idea what they did, but with Zag's history, he really has been given more than enough chances to stop acting like an idiot and spamming. And I would go as far as saying he's the worst spammer on the board since I joined, which is a big statement.

JohnnyNemesis

For the record, this is something we're taking into consideration in our discussion. The last thing we wanna do is get rid of genuine fans, but we also can't have them flying in the face of what we've been told to do...


I haven't read one thing that he's posted which is malicious or hugely breeching violation.

This falls into the whole "that's 'cause we got rid of it before it became a disturbance to you" category that we talked about in a few threads. If you don't see this kind of thing, it's not 'cause it didn't happen, but because we got rid of it in a timely fashion.

(Which brings me to a thought: I think moderating a BBS is the only position where you actually get criticized for doing your work efficiently, lolz. It's a misunderstanding though, so I don't get mad.)


Psh, it's the same deal with all of them.

Patently false, and there are several posts to forums and social groups that prove otherwise.

In contrast to the older forum members like Jakebert, I'll post my opinion on Cock Joke here as one of the newer members. To me, Cock Joke was never like a troll and I wonder that some people are still here if he got banned. I agree that he posted stupid stuff quite often but in my opinion, this stuff always remained stupid and was never demeaning or causing real harm. That is how I saw him from Jan 2008(actually 3-5 months earlier since I have read the boards before I had an account). I hope this sounds neutral and not like some of the other posts in here ;).

We want everyone else to be able to see the board like you have just described, but it's a double-edged sword as when someone does end up getting banned, few others but us have seen why.

I don't see how it's possible that you delete "most" of the bad stuff before anyone sees it. Like, what is the likelihood that you consistently see that one bad post out of hundreds before anybody else? That's bullshit. You would have to sign on every 15 minutes and check absolutely every single new post for that to be true. That's ridiculous.

I've seen those let's say "inappropriate pics" they posted, those were clearly rule violations, and there was no need to do that. If they already had been warned before and this was the third warning for each, i think that the mods made the right decision. Mods need to do their job, they need to treat everyone the same way. If these guys would get away with breaking the rules it wouldn't be fair to any other member who got banned before (or after) them.

bighead384
08-08-2008, 01:38 PM

Wait a minute, are you saying that there are rules on this forum? Rules that people have to follow? What the fuck? And wait, you can get... banned for violating these rules? Glory be I never knew! Why, if only someone had alerted us to this, as well as written these rules down and placed them in some public part of the forum, then we could know the proper codes of conduct for not having this terrible fate befall us.

Oooh - another idea - we could also intentionally violate these rules in a fit of childish rebellion we should've all gotten out of our systems in middle school, then continue our pattern of immaturity by not accepting the consequences of our actions and instead turning to the very moderators we've been trying to piss off to beg for a second chance! Wouldn't that be fun?

But this is serious business, guys. We're forced to exist under a horrifically authoritarian, power-mad regime. Quick, to action! Let's argue incessantly about things we don't know! I have a passionate, brilliant and compelling - nay, damning - argument that will surely convince you that these mods should all be overthrown.

But I don't have any time to type it out right now, so instead I'll come back later to discover that nobody agrees with me and pretend I never made this post. Fight the power!

Oooh - another idea - we could also intentionally violate these rules in a fit of childish rebellion we should've all gotten out of our systems in middle school, then continue our pattern of immaturity by not accepting the consequences of our actions and instead turning to the very moderators we've been trying to piss off to beg for a second chance! Wouldn't that be fun?

But this is serious business, guys. We're forced to exist under a horrifically authoritarian, power-made regime. Quick, to action! Let's argue incessantly about things we don't know! I have a passionate, brilliant and compelling - nay, damning - argument that will surely convince you that these mods should all be overthrown.

But I don't have any time to type it out right now, so instead I'll come back later to discover that nobody agrees with me and pretend I never made this post. Fight the power!

I love it.

Wait a minute, are you saying that there are rules on this forum? Rules that people have to follow[i]? What the fuck? And wait, you can get... [i]banned for violating these rules?

If you tell me how Iíll plant evidence so that bighead may be banned...
Heís such a ********* I canít stand that you havenít found some way of dealing with him. Like seriously could you hack his account and have him mass post a bunch of inappropriate pictures or something.

Yeah, but then after a couple weeks people would be all like "Why's it so quiet and boring on the forum, anyway?" I mean, at this point he's singlehandedly sustaining around half of the major flame wars on the forum. That's pretty impressive. Yeah, many adjectives apply, but "impressive" is one.

Flame wars are ALL my fault on this forum, and have been for years. Don't try ripping me off with this "half" shit.

You're a conformist. You would never understand what it means to be punk.

Well, that was what I had expected. But still I wonder why I didn't see these things one or two times because there are really times when I'm so bored that I click the "new posts" button like every 30 seconds.

I believe the pictures they posted in the postcount thread remained there for hours, it's like I saw them right after I got up in the morning and they were still there in the afternoon.

And neither do you. You haven't done one thing to actually step out of the out of line versus the authority. So why don't you become punk, grow a pair of balls, and do something punk...something anti-establishment...something against the authorities that be on this BBS. Something other than posting another whiny thread complaining about bannings.

We are dealing with an advanced flamer here. I'm posting a link to some useful tips - i think we'll need them, because otherwise we'll be screwed when he lits up his flame thrower:

I'm once again going to emphasize the curse of moderating a punk forum. You'd be surprised at what's believable and what's not.

I was DEAD serious when I said that, too. I guess it's hard to realize things like that when you're so used to accepting things without questioning first.

Authority is wrong.

Oh trust me, I questioned. I questioned many things like:


How many times your mother dropped you on your head? or
How can one person be this stupid? or
Is he just having us on? or
What is a grape nut? or
Does his username describe his penis or his actual cranium? Or
Is he just big headed and doesn't care that he makes no sense? Or
Is this actually a mod in disguise just having a good time? Or
Is this someone who we shouldn't make fun of because they actually are mentally handicapped?

I WASN'T SERIOUS.

Bighead was attempting to be satirical with his punk comments. But what he doesn't realize is that most of his other posts are so stupid, it makes it impossible to tell if he's serious or not.

LOL I'm the 1337.

We're going to discuss it again later when cooler heads hopefully prevail. You can keep being a dick about it, though. That totally helps.

If you let what I say affect your decision as a mod, then you shouldn't be one. I have opinions on the situation, but I don't actually have anything to do with it. And what do you mean cooler heads? LOL. You really do take this place too seriously.

An old, unoriginal argument. Just leave the mods do their job, because they were asked to do it, it doesn't make you more punk for fighting them, it just shows that YOU are the one who is taking this place too seriously.

Alright, you brought this on yourselves. This forum is about discussion of the board, not about your personal opinion on each others' character or sexual orientation. I've been more lax lately about the types of conversations I've been allowing, but a snippy flameskirmish going nowhere but down is beyond the edge. Your point has been made, and apparently all substantive conversation on the subject has been exhausted, though I will add a coda.


It's been like 10 days. You said you'd let some of them back, but by this point, you might as well ban them permanently.They were banned because they broke the rules thrice, intentionally, with malice. This isn't a fucking slap on the wrist, and they have given us no reason by their behavior on here for us to bend over backwards looking for a reason to allow them back in. When we say "we'll reconsider", we promise nothing beyond that. If they'll be allowed to return, it's gonna be a while.

However, I think that what we've seen in this thread is that you are, by and large, alone in your outrage. In fact, most people seem to be enjoying the boards more without a tween wannabe e-gang whinging every other day about this or that. Hell, if anything, this thread has gotten me thinking about how nice this place has been the past few days. If you'd like, we'll tell you when and if we make a decision on them, but I just want to state that I find it extremely odd that a group with a self-imposed mission to be disruptive on this board and bend or break the rules would believe that they are owed anything at all from us when they finally have to face the consequences for pre-determined actions.
