Finder Posted June 30, 2020 Share Posted June 30, 2020 *** The comment below and the quotes are not aimed at GR, I quoted the piece of the thread for logical reasons and clarity only. 15 hours ago, Golden Retriever said: 16 hours ago, ink said: Lets take the last member who you put on 30 days moderation of content (28th June) .... alexa (who seems to believe in flat earth which you do not) You sanctioned them for taking a thread off topic when they didn't start the off topic discussion. The member who did start it, with a 'dig' against alexa about flat earth, you left alone. I saw that too. Alexa did not take the thread off topic. Another member started talking about flat earth, not Alexa. How fascinating, the same thing happened to me and funny enough on this very thread but much earlier. SE accused me of taking this thread off topic and assumed I was a troll based on ONE interaction (which had nothing to do with trolling) while in reality it was another member (Tinfoil Hat) who derailed the thread into the doom and gloom with her ridiculous, illogical and off topic angry replies. For the record, I hardly ever had interacted with Tin Foil on any subject prior to that and I had never said anything bad or derogatory about her or her opinions on any subject and any thread whatsoever. But that was dismissed by both her and SE and without verifying who actually initiated and than continued the angry venting and labels issuing and name calling, I and not Tinfoil was accused of being a troll. The fact that Tinfoil publicly confirmed her sudden dislike of me on another thread by expressing her hope that I was banned (in my total absence on that thread) went unnoticed. My point is that when a mod, on any forum accuses any member of thread derailing and trolling, the member overall PATTERN of behaviour and interaction and not a single reply (which may be misinterpreted or prove nothing) should be considered. I do not think that Tinfoil is a troll btw either, I recognise that she is terribly angry as she has no control over what happens on social scale around her and not just that. But this is none of my business. However, when she starts acting like I am her personal enemy (now on two threads), it becomes my business and ideally I would expect a neutral side in the form of a mod to tell her that she is crossing the line. If the mod fails to do it, then I sure will reply to such member to let them know their reactions are not appropriate. The fact is I am neither her friend nor her enemy, she doesn't know me, period. For reference sake: here I only submitted a reply to ink's legit and very on topic question he asked on this thread about what each of us expects from mods. I responded to this question and mentioned that this thread went as far off topic as it was possible, as an example. Tinfoil Hat took it from there with a number of angry remarks further derailing the thread. But it was me who was accused by SE of derailing the thread into 'heavy moods' with a consequent assumption of being a troll. I have never been accused of being a troll anywhere! And since the discussion on this thread has reached this point, I'll mention one more interesting detail. One day before my complaint on this thread about things going terribly off topic, I PM-ed SE and asked her/him about the situation, without making any public comments yet. Now, could SE tell me why s/he never replied and why I had to learn it from ink (ink, thanks btw), that the OP was asked about the situation here and said he didn't mind his thread being a blend of just about everything? I don't like what's going on here any more. And frankly I am no longer inspired to comment here. To sum it up, what was right on this forum has left. And what is left is not right. P.S. If Tinfoil wants another round of nonsense ride with what she thinks of me, please either PM me so we can get to the root cause of it or put me on your ignore list. I am ok with either option. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
