I leave it to 'the people' to decide.
I did not this this
Hacked account? Mod shenanigans?
hahahahahahahaha oh forza :''''')
Always genuinely intrigued.
Some people seemingly followed him from the last forum he was on and kicked up a bit of a fuss about some things he may or may not have said years ago.
He has a writing style which is a bit divisive, but it's not like he's clogging up the boards like cat_race with stupid threads, or breaking the whole site like Poosie the other day.
He reminds me of KiK if anything. Northern, opinionated, slightly whimsical. Keep him.
You might want to avoid this thread. I know I would.
he is pretty difficult to ignore sometimes and it's not like he turns on his "troll" side...everything he posts is sort of grating. But he's not done anything that extreme.
What's he done to be banned? Funny that more than a few people who this'd the ban comment are far worse trolls than MSBH. I'd rather see his threads over the dead horse radiohead threads any day
about dead horses called Radiohead. Way too many about the band instead.
“At the end of every day we start a ^this thread asking for people to vote on who they think the shittest and/or most annoying DiSer's been that day (joke account votes will be discounted). No personal insults.
Admin then ban said person for ONE DAY (probably in their best interests).
I think it'd benefit us all, tbh.
We'd maybe have to have some rule to avoid the same person being banned each day irrespective of what they post, though in an ideal world we'd all just vote honestly, and the shittest person would just go about their every day life normally for what shouldn't be that big a deal in the grand scheme of things.
Admin would have to be on the ball about secondary/joke accounts popping up, etc.
We'll start it from tomorrow then.
Happy to be a grown-up and take any bans on the chin, personally.”
You can't ban people temporarily anymore.
all he's done is start threads am I correct? Isn't that the whole point of this site? Has he come out and made personal attacks on long venerated users or spam PM'ed people? If so, boot him out. Otherwise I can't see the grounds for a ban - he's not exactly the Westboro Baptist Church of DiS is he?
While we're here where did St Cronin go? Mad as a bag of weasels but his comments were interesting nonetheless (menstrual flow obsessions aside...)
the point of the site isn't to start threads, it's to have conversations and debates, get advice, share stories... Merely starting threads, particularly ones that are merely a title like, "We don't talk any more," with no other content, isn't the whole point of this site.
Cat_race keeps starting threads but he keeps the rubbish just to the social board and also his threads are generally non-confrontational. By that, I mean, they are not posted in a style designed to wind people up. It's not an easy difference to make and if it was then people would be banned by some sort of automated process; but you could see a marked difference between the effect posts from cat_race had on people to the effect posts by SquidSullivan, etc. do.
Again, this was a serious question that was worth asking and more specifically on the music forum where there is a different threshold for shit.
Just keep your posts on the social forum.
They have a higher "threshold for shit" as Theo puts it.
I don't see the point in banning him (unless his actions leading to his latest banning as Squidsullivan were really bad/offensive). If the threads get too much/too annoying, then keeping moving along.
If you eel you have sufficient reason to ban an account, then very quickly a replacement (obviously from the same user) appears pretty soon, what is stopping you just banning them too? Otherwise, what is the point of banning in the first place?
He's much less annoying than the "LOL TIME TO GO" posters who ruin every half-decent thread he tries to start, and he's obviously put a lot of effort into his review threads. cat_race posts tonnes of banal threads and things best kept to Facebook chat but he seems to get a bye because some of you know him in real life.
Like Cronin, who was told he "needed a break from the internet"
As people rightly told me, if he annoys you, ignore him.
because he kept starting threads to personally attack people.
And having a breakdown in public on the internet, or was that before?
My point was that "he needed a break from the internet" was never the reason for the banning.
Although I'd imagine it was good enough for people who'd stumbled into a thread about period blood one too many times...
Kind of asked for it, really.
Pat to post the thread when hofo pmd him that time, saying that he hated women. Hofo still kind of deserved it.
If his schtick isn't bothering people that's fine.
I don't know what he did to get banned before but he did start making accounts to argue with himself so maybe he went too far.
Did nobody actually read that 100 NME tracks thread?
But I'm sure plenty did.
Much preferred the "Choose a band, remove one letter..." thread
People got a bit too precious about it. I'm not really sure why.
I'm just saying Jan isn't one of them.
I wonder what Simon Bostwick would think of this.
even if he posts a lot of shit
I'm not really in favour of banning anyone tho
In that he doesn't really participate in discussion and just wants a captive audience to shout every thought he has at as if this place was his own personal blog. If he stops doing that then fine, but the fact he's made about a dozen threads since yesterday afternoon doesn't suggest he's about to do so.
Just dragging legendary names through the mud like its no thing.
He's like Cronin at the peak of his Lana phase.
mainly for the tagging in those threads. Then it went TOO FAR.
Not when it comes to content.
I miss that guy...
-starts a couple of banal threads
-gets drunk and insults people, getting himself banned
-gets a new username
-starts a new thread revealing new username and begs for forgiveness
-repeat to fade
Annoying but hardly ban-worthy.
but Theo's actually a pretty cool guy.
plays quite nicely if you engage with him but will try to beat his sister to death with a wooden train if you have to take two minutes away for a phone call.
He will kill again. Perhaps posting is the only thing stemming the tide of depraved blood lust. Seems the sort.
So many amazing threads have been lost forever when it wiped everything every banned user ever posted.
As for Squid, he's fine when he's just posting, but when the attention seeking starts it get really annoying.
which was the best thread by miles.
which often smashes the thread.
One troll had made one post in that thread, and now it's messed up (scroll down to bottom and work up)
Loads more really good threads have been fucked too, especially back when there was all those spammers.
it needs to be the other way around... when a troll gets deleted none of their posts are deleted, otherwise it fucks up all the threads.
If people start trying to ban others for not fitting in they're just doing what the cool kids did to them when they were teenagers. Cycle of violence. Or something.
Yes - AFCMerepseudbaghead is an attention-seeking knob but there's loads of attention-seekers on here. He's only doing what they're doing. Admittedly in a more annoying way but that's not his fault.
clearly the guy is an unquestionnable buffoon with seemingly no awareness of just how unfunny his schtick is, and I struggle to read almost anything he writes without thinking 'jesus fucking christ' but at the end of the day, he's just a painfully uninteresting snivelling drone. Like the rest of us.
24 hours a day with no internet access, ideally.
the whole board will have to be banned.
I feel a bit bad, as apparently my reviews threads made him sign up for the site, and if he really is that big a problem to people then I'm sorry about that, but he's always been nice to me and, as far as I can tell, to others. Keep.
start acting less like a little girl and more like a penis owner.
it also deletes ALL OF THEIR POSTS.
was a bad move that, no one gave a shit about the festivals board being full of spam but ruining all the classic and long running threads is a shame.
Smashes up existing threads, deletes a load of classics.
I understand the intention, but the downsides actually outweigh the benefits.
Years of DiStory gone.
in the cache, but you can't view the thread.
you can probably find the 'remove a letter' thing about 4 or 5 years ago (with the same suggestions). No big loss!
and all his brightonb posts were gone.
Such an incredible body of work gone to waste.
this is the most important forum on the internet
Does it even count as DiS anymore?
It makes me worry that if I start my planned Taylor Swift thread then it'll sink down the board Lyle-style because this monstrosity is hogging all the attention.
Anyway, this song is great: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WA4iX5D9Z64
He's clearly a cunt. He should be...banned?
sean must have a laminated copy on his desk.
it's the other mods and it's totally left up to their own discretion who they ban and why. It's seems as long as you're part of the London Metropolitan Elite (like me) you can get away with anything.
If I banned you I'd have to ban brusma, and then I'd need to ban Royter and kissinginkansas... it would get totally out of hand and we'd have World War I all over again.
you big prick
purely for defending cat_race
I had hitherto nothing against him
The fact that I can go nuclear on my catalogue of bullshit if needs be is reassuring.
We need your posts to stay as a lesson to others.
And discovering that I've replied
