Another thing: What's a "racist URL"? A link to a racist site? An innocent link that somehow contains a racial slur? A link to a racist site that contains a racial slur? An unfortunate product of the gfycat random title generator?

Same here, I'm wondering what that was all about. I asked someone to PM me the link if they remembered what it was.

I swear the mood around here is about as stable as Nitroglycerin during an earthquake...

I will admit I likely took things too far calling him out like that. But I still stand by my opinion and will even repeat it if asked, since there's no point in attempting to retract it.

And for the most part GC kept saying you shouldn't piss on other peoples happy more than telling people to get out. I think the only time she outright said that sort of thing was when people posted really objectionable content, usually relating to wanting to hurt or actually hurting other people.
It's really not that you said it...  I get that part, and I'm pretty sure he really is a piece of shit.  (Though my only interaction with him, years earlier, was playing some forum games and he seemed fine.  So it's *weird* from my perspective, is all)

But yeah it's not that you said it, it's that there was no response.  I've had several posts deleted that I would totally stand by, but they were too aggressive and I understand why they were deleted.  If that makes sense?

Anyway I don't even dislike Janet.  It's just that things and people get weird when cliques form, even unintentionally.  I think it got out of hand and I hope she doesn't take it too hard, and I do think it'll be good for her in the long run.

Jeezum crow the thread is still moving fast, 7 replies.

Is Eurothread's (or was it other thread?) temporary lock-and-purge for 'laughing at Jews' related maybe to LSP's link and ban?? Or two different affairs there.

I am honestly surprised anyone would be surprised lsp got banned. He's been practically begging for toady to ban him for over a year now, and he never posted anything worthwhile to make up for all the shit.

I'm also surprised people are surprised he git banned for racism. I don't think there's many posts of his in the eurothread that isn't loaded with passive aggressive racism.

I kinda like Toady's moderation style to be honest. Its better than arguing with the community on whats right or not, if TvTropes has taught us anything.

EDIT: Too much argueninjaing

And its not like LSP didn't really ask for it. I mean, other forum members have made questionable posts in the past, but he practically shitposted and made questionable arguments every other day, it was basically his thing.

No, that was reelya invoking Godwin on Loud Whispers.

That post is still there actually and it seemed like Toady One only locked it to give things a moment to cool down, don't know what if anything was deleted.

When the gloves came off and LSP used punctuation things of quality were born, things such that men dream of.

Yeah but while that was spicy no one was banned then. There was a few more posts from LSP on Japan and then LSP is banned and happy thread dies.

As for Toady's moderation style.....he's got other things he wants to do than administrate the OT section of his boards. A full-time forum moderator would have the leisure of examining people's posting history, engaging them in debate, assessing motives and all that stuff. He doesn't have time for it though and it's not something you want to hire someone to control, just so we here can talk about something other than DF. The rules are there and he's been plenty lenient with people in the past. At a certain point you just have to go "This is my house and you've been fucking around in it long enough." I don't begrudge him that, even if I didn't personally see and measure the straw that broke the camel's back.
I *really* don't understand why he doesn't get community moderators.  The lower boards have got to be a serious drain on DF development, even with his slightly heavy-handed moderation.  I mean, he doesn't even just lock threads, he goes through and deletes the argumentative posts.  Seems like a hell of a lot of effort.

Cos then he'd have to deal with community moderators
