AbsentMinded and his banhammer powers

Have something to say about forums.debian.net itself?

AbsentMinded and his banhammer powers

Postby LostYourMindHaveYou » 2011-01-21 23:34

This is his "wise" decision:
Code: Select all
You have been banned from this board until 2011-01-28 05:48.

Please contact the Board Administrator for more information.

Reason given for ban: Posting porn to the forum to test the staff is a very unwise thing to do. The next time it will be a perminant ban.


This guy is plain wrong on so many points:
1. This is not porn - http://oi53.tinypic.com/348g28x.jpg
2. I'm not testing any staff (or his staff powers which he obviously loves to show off). To put it in proper perspective, please read through the thread it was posted in - viewtopic.php?f=12&t=59409
3. No one should be banned for life (or threatened) based on one post alone.
4. If you're threatening someone of a permanent ban, at least spell the word "permanent" correctly.

This guy may have all the time in the world to moderate a forum but I think he should keep his personal issues in check before swinging the banhammer. I accuse this guy of discrimination.

First off, AbsentMinded isn't a native speaker, so him flubbing spelling up isn't unexpected(unless you want to dictate he set his spellcheck to English. Second, I can see how that'd count as porn.

Well I'm not a native English speaker too and I live in a country where there are no native English speakers.

Your pic was no worse than this one...
Look closely, exposed NIPPLES!!! Look to the right of the desktop...
Your mistake was posting tux-painted boobies in that particular thread. Did he get a warning and some time off, too? Maybe no one tattled on his post. Neither one bothers me, but I may be more liberal than some. All I know is I wouldn't want the task of moderating here, or anywhere else for that matter.
To think some dog turds really started this whole thing still gives me a chuckle. Art vs. porn is indeed a subjective thing.

Oh, for heaven's sake, what did you expect when you posted that pic? Understand, it doesn't personally offend me, but such material has NO PLACE on a forum like this one. Maybe one could get away with this on a photography forum, but not this one. I don't presume to speak for the ladies here, but I certainly don't want to have this place covered with pics of naked men, so why would the ladies here have to be exposed to pics of naked women; geez, have some consideration for others!

Oh, and you were banned for a whole week! Talk about a slap on the wrist :lol: Oh, and BTW, apparently it didn't stop you from registering under a different name & coming back to bitch. What did you expect when you chose to get in a pissing contest with a mod? Grow up.

I see a pretty lady, that's all.

I didn't get a warning. I was banned (for a week) right away with a warning of a permanent ban.

From a non-native English speaker, the word "discretion" springs to mind.

What makes you think I'm trying to get in a pissing contest with that mod?

Pissing contest or not, why was I the only who got banned in that thread? That's selective, discriminatory exercise of one's mod powers.

Oh c'mon...don't be such a drama queen & take it so personally :roll: . You posted something you know you shouldn't have & got called on it. Be a man, quit pointing the finger at others, accept your lumps & move on. It really wasn't that big a deal... :x turn that frown upside down. :) :mrgreen: I went back & looked up some of your posts & I feel that the forum is better off with you than without you, as long as you stay away from verboten postings. Besides, in 100 years, who is gonna care?

In that case, you might need this.

Judging from the OP's defiant, immature behavior in this thread, Absent Minded is certainly a good judge of character. I like that in a moderator. :)

OK thanks to everyone who replied - JohnDeere630 for your (not funny this time around, ok maybe just a little) name-calling, SoulSingin' for the video link (although I would've preferred a Black Crowes song coming from you), and traveler the only one who doesn't seem to be biased at all.

I'm not trying to fool anyone and I have no idea someone's character is at stake on Teh Internets...I just want to uh...I just want to...POST! That's all folks.

Bye for now. Cheers! :lol:
