Rene- are you even moderating this forum?

Unread postby star_trek_geek » 1 February 2020, 20:06

In the forum rules Rene states "Be mature and respect each other." yet there are many posts that clearly cross this line, and Rene does nothing about it. In some cases, he even gives them a "thumbs up".

What is the point in having forum rules if the creator of those rules doesn't respect them?

When you have one person behaving badly, it leads to others noticing nothing happens so they do the same thing & it's catching. The whole place ends up as a free-for-all in antagonisation. This is not what I signed up for.

He’s 39?! What a little beeotch. I wonder if he’s one of those people who uses the term “triggered” unironically.

STG— honestly, you have not been here long enough to pass that sort of judgement. René and Brenden do a great job as mods. Part of that is not having too heavy a hand in banning members. There have been people whose contributions have been largely negative or abusive, and they do not last long. "Be mature" is open to interpretation, and one could argue that your defensiveness is lacking in this area.

The forum has a culture which cannot be entirely constrained to a set of rules. Every community will have its leaders, teachers, clowns, harmonizers, disruptors, etc. Without diversity the forum would be monotonous at best. I don't agree with every member, or appreciate their online style, by a long shot. However, I enjoy the challenge of communicating with almost everyone here. If nothing else, just block and ignore anyone you find to be too offensive. Also, participation is not required if this forum is not a good fit.

Jzone has found such a lovely way of telling you to fuck off, you should drop him a PM and thank him for taking the time on your way out.

My honest opinion is that Jzone and Marmaduke (in his own way) have given you valuable life advice in various places and that you have much to gain from taking it seriously.

It really isn’t that bad. The best way of dealing with unpleasant people is to not give them the satisfaction. You’re giving them satisfaction. Even if you tell them directly “I’m not gonna give you the satisfaction” you’re still giving them satisfaction.
People love to follow fools; they don't feel so alone then.

I just gave Marm two swirlies and Derek a wedgie while you were typing this comment and weighing yourself after pooping. God you really are dropping the ball! :oface: Anyway, I’m off to Mexico so I can cross the border back illegally in front of a Republican as I lecherously flick my tongue at his son.

Agree with by seeing others posting against rules I followed and posted (not knowing it was against rules) moments after creating my account and minutes later was banned. The banned message even said “fuck off” really? even worse I was able to immediately create a new account

Your other account username being "FINDM4M", which posted a link to a "new M4M site" asking for "feedback".

You clearly didn't read or follow the rules, which state: "4. Trolling, spamming, soliciting, self-promotion and advertising without permission are not allowed."

Furthermore, if you were indeed just soliciting feedback, you also missed this relevant guideline page.

InviteHealing wrote:even worse I was able to immediately create a new account

Yes, indeed, mea culpa. I ought to have banned your IP address as well!

Typically for offending accounts that are clearly not just bots, I expect the human to read and comprehend the outgoing ban message, and I don't like to just ban the IP address as well since IPv4 addresses get recycled a lot these days and I don't want any potential future good member to be blocked.

In your case, it wasn't just "fuck off", it was "Feedback denied. Fuck off, spammer!" Because that's typically what a person whose first post is to link to some website is: a spammer. In your case, I added the contextual "feedback denied" to make it clear I, also a human, read the title of your thread and you weren't just being caught up in some blind spam filter.


Now, you are welcome to stay. Introduce yourself to us. Become a member of our community.

But if you're just here to advertise your shitty new hookup website and solicit feedback, then please do kindly FUCK OFF.

Brenden! That’s ad-shaming! It’s right up there with fat-shaming, mommy-shaming and Drake-shaming.

Well, you did ask for feedback.

And what about advertising your own site on a forum without permission? Was that professional of you? It should be quite obvious that that counts as spam on any site...

Where does professionalism come into it, anyway? What profession is involved here?

Sorry, we could not be more disinterested in advertising a hook-up site or forming a relationship with one...
