i "this'd" the post that started it. I'M NEXT
all because of stamps!
he was a great piss artiste
retaliated by using an expletive and got barred. Well done idiots.
calling bamos a fucking fat gout infested pork pie eating CUUUUNT?
Yeah, but, you know, pretty funny?
(sorry bamos. Was it the gout that finished him off?)
the time Bamnan started a thread that said - completely seriously - that he hoped pretty much everyone on the board died and their families died
i'm amazed he wasn't banned for that
we've stood in a room with a pig's head between us so as you well know the rules dictate that he cannot be banned until the at least the solstice.
and during the pentecost Theo, the old ways were intended as guidelines, not as something to govern our very lives. I fear the vague apprehensions you and the other disciples claim to have divined in the entrails cloud your judgment, and that he's a complete twerp who deserves the boot right now.
I was jokingly misunderstanding PO, and i think you missed my joke, but now i'm not sure what YOU'RE referring to.
I like bamnan, think he's pretty funny, even if he does talk some claptrap. I think that people overreact about bannings though, is it really such a big deal?
At the end of the day, you call a mod a cunt, you just MIGHT get barred?...
which is why i find him amusing. mods should perhaps be less precious. internetzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
Don't ask me any hard questions today of all days, pleeeeease! :)
I was hoping for a hand with this whole middle-east conflict thing.
(although the two are not mutually exclusive).
but I'm just an outsider
Maybe he'll come back as the moody Bamnan we all know and love and who makes the rest us feel better about our miserable little lives next time.
Fuck me, what a load of bollocks. Who's Bamos sucking off to get that done?
He had a couple of ribs removed.
he was sound
as not knowing that you can buy stamps in bulk.
(this is probably not a good sign, being away for an hour and feeling like I've missed out)
if i got offended by comments made to me like this over the internetz (for fucks sake) i might as well shut down.
and deep down i don't you do either.
He's easily avoided if you dinnae like his chat. There's a lot of cock being sucked over this.
I've got skin as thick as the next man (I would have, I'm fucking massive) but there's no need to wilfully and repeatedly insult someone in that manner. I don't need to stand for it, and nor does anyone else.
The day I stand by and let someone I don't know call me a 'fat fucking cunt' is the day I 'shut down'. There's no need for it whatsoever.
He is an impetutous fool all too often, but i thought he was kind of on the up again. It's your call though guv, and fair play for making it if you think he overstepped the line.
why not pm him about it or ask one of the mods to have a word or something? Banning seems a tad pathetic.
It's all a bit MTFU-y for my liking.
MTFU and deal with his loss.
asked for the irish troll to be banned for disgusting comments he made about my daughter. You did naff all about it. Thats the problem people have here I think Theo, one rule for one etc etc. I'm not having a pop, I know you can't be standing primed for action 24/7 but it is a little inconsistent..
PLEASE DON'T BAN ME.
must have missed all that.
(hence the reason why it was so hard to 'ban' him). He was responsible for some inspired posting, some really nasty stuff, and MAGNETISE!
Eventually his IP address was tracked down and banned as well.
We can't do that.
Did you just ask him to stop posting then? And he agreed?
You can't ban IP addresses because few are unique to a user so you'd be potentially removing a load of other users from the site.
Irish Troll must have never had a static address because usually his profiles didn't link to each other and that does use the IP address underneath to check these things.
I don't see any. I've banned the Irish troll COUNTLESS times, including many times when he took the piss out of kik, a user who repeated treated me to insults and bullshit.
So if you would point me toward the fucker I'll delete him but if you expect me to just telepathically work out what you want then I can only assume you're some sort of woman.
I am deeply offended by your suggestion that I am a woman. Please ban yourself forthwith.
You're going to have to point me to these threads.
Just because I post in a thread doesn't mean I am going to read every thread.
When someone says 'ban request' I don't ban someone because I have no context for the personal relationships on here. I expect someone to actually message me directly if they feel someone's crossed the line, as has happened frequently in the past.
in mind should there ever be a next time. Thanks for your help. Now lets get back to the matter in hand.
BRING BACK BAMNAN
Did anyone 'have a word' with him first? He gets more stick than most on here (rightly or wrongly) and i can't imagine those responsible get much ban action thrown their way...
Probably not. Maybe he'll unban him in a week. Who knows? I don't have a strong opinion on Bamnan but he seemed to spend a lot of time on her being a mardy git, that's for sure.
What more do you want?
Actually, bamos is a mod now, isn't he?
It's all the power going to his head!
"you are a complete and utter cunt"
"but I have no way of actually physically caving your stupid thick head in with a rock from this far South so this is as close as I can get."
"She's a proper cunt though.
A genuine, thick as fuck, grade A wind-me-up-and-watch-me-go thundercunt. It's like arguing with a fucking windmill. You throw the same argument at four different fucking blades but as soon as they spin up to the top the argument drops off and back round she comes again, for the same thing to happen. Standing on her own in the middle of her strange field with no other friends, unaware of the real world going on in towns and villages down the hill."
There are plenty more. So can I get you banned?
pocketmouse has a point. time to leave the board, bamos.
take brusma with you while you're at it.
laying into other users repeatedly for refusing to hold your unusual world view about things. While you certainly never called anyone a cunt (that I recall) you labelled them morons and retards, etc.
Personally I always found those exchanges huge amounts of fun...
I'm just pointing out that it's not like PocketMouse was posting about how much she loved Manga and bamos came on and called her a fat cunt.
he was repeatedly mocking bamnan's intelligence
He's pretty good at it. bamos probably shouldn't have let himself get drawn in.
you always get the rough end of any banning hysteria so i'm gonna leave it.
just find it ridiculous that bamos got so wound up. he should man up a tad.
He called her a 'thundercunt' once.
as nasty a word as cunt and all that, that windmill analogy's fantastic.
...the bannings on here are a little bit inconsistent ain't they?
I've called Bamnan worse things than what he said to Bamos and I've only replied to him about twice. Awful.
BUT AT WHAT PRICE?
worst part is that I've had it stuck in my head since this thread started
"I've got bad intentions, I intend to knock you down" was constantly goung round.
Tut tut tut.
i gotta find out what they were
*strokes hair and purrs encouragingly*
Remember you´re my Bamnan,
When they give you the eye
Although I know that you care,
Won´t you write and declare
That though on the loose,
Yuo are still on the square,
I´ll be gloomy
But send the rainbow to me
Then my shadows will fly,
Though you´ll be gone for a while
I know that I´ll be smiling
With my Bamnan bye and bye
(PS that gout pie insult was well funny... FREE THE RUSHDEN ONE!!)
he seemed nice.
I'm getting Bye Bye Badman by The Stone Roses out of my head now.
if sean would just pull his finger out and get that ignore user funtion in place, instead of browsing shit articles about the state of the music industry. Sort it out yeah sean?
You've done it again!
Who has a link to the thread where he wished death upon everyone and their families? I need to see this.
It sounded so entertaining...
"angry but dog-ugly"
nobody knows who i am, but still.
jesus, this ban system is inconsistant as fuck.
and can you just call it what it is, a sin bin or something...it would probably save all the outrage if you just came out and said he was off the boards for the day but will be back tomorrow.
I think it was still at least a 300 reply thread full of the same retarded sorts of replies.
that's a bit inflammatory...almost as if you're trying to wind people up
i just meant, i thought the whole epic back and forth could be avoided if...instead of leaving it to a user to smugly break the news of someone's ban....you can out in an official capacity and said.....'bamnan has been banned for this...he will be back tomorrow'
but, if that doesn't work, fair enough.
whenever any mod either does a banning or makes some kind of 'official' announcement (example: fishplums' "libel" thread after the roman polanski thing), people always spit the dummy, get really worked up over it etc etc
not that that's a bad thing or a good thing, just a thing
has this got to do with Mods. It has just clicked that you mean a moderator not a mod scooter type person.
It's pretty obvious why people get banned. The world is an inconsistent place. These things happen.
Yet people delight in acting like they're some sort of guardians of freedom of speech or bollocks like that for someone who they probably wouldn't even miss if they stopped posting tomorrow of their own accord.
How many people actually give a shit that kissinginkansas hasn't posted since New Year? He might as well be banned...
I've seen one thread so far with some half-hearted 'oh well' type comments in the main.
I'm just saying there hasn't been anything like the amount of rubbish you'd see if he'd been banned.
That wasn't particularly souper.
When he made Pearl Harbor.
I miss him more than that movie missed the point,
And that’s an awful lot .
And now, now he's gone away,
And all I'm trying to say,
Is Pearl Harbor sucked and I miss him
I need him like Ben Affleck needs acting school,
He was terrible in that film.
I need him like Cuba Gooding needed a bigger part,
He's way better then Ben Affleck.
And now all I can think about is his smile,
And that shitty movie too,
Pearl Harbor sucked and I miss him
Why does Michael Bay get to keep on making movies?
I guess Pearl Harbor sucked
Just a little bit more than I miss him.
BUT I WON'T BECAUSE THAT IS REALLY ANNOYING
i just thought it was a bit of an unneessary dig at your nemesis.
He can be okay but he has a habit of responding to any argument he can't win (which is most of them) by calling someone a cunt.
Regardless, he's an example of someone who's only recently gone away and no one's really made a big deal of. There have been others and people don't even remember them now. It's really not the end of the world.
Right now I have requests to ban Craig again for being a fucktard and posting NSFW stuff and getting all arsy with anyone who has the temerity to call him out for being a twat. I'm sure there are loads of people who think he's being HILARIOUS, though. Great, innit?
Seems to be working.
Meanwhile Poseidon just swans around making calls on Lucien's phone?
"Hey, hey, Zeus, baby, how's it going?"
It's called the babblefish.
Here we are, talking about him.
I'm amazed he hasn't returned.
i think sometimes you need to step back more and be more objective though...but i appreciate the whole task is a chore and you'll never please everyone and all the crap is inveitable.
i genuinly miss kansas though. everytime one of his old threads that someone has posted in pops up, my heart skips a beat.
i'm glad he's away because he's hopefully doing something worthwhile and feeling good about getting out of the routine
I don't think I've ever banned anyone for being insulting to me personally because people seem to feel that's not on.
But you can't really be objective about this sort of thing. Some people will get away with more than others. You can't honestly expect that we should treat an unpopular member like GalacticStar3ruption identically to the way we'd treat a more popular member, can you? A forum isn't a level playing field.
Neither you nor bamos owe anyone an explanation. As Jamie Summers says further down this thread, it's not the fucking U.N.
Call a mod a fat cunt, you risk getting banned. OHMYGOD.
i didn't know that. see...it's all conjecture unless the mod just comes out and clearly states what the craic is. it would've save a whole pointless discussion between me and theo.
ike he did here: http://drownedinsound.com/community/boards/social/4221560#r5141524 ?
and from there theo gave him the heave ho,
playground tactics really.
a bit of shit-stirring's always fun, especially when i'm stuck at work bored all day
although ultimately someone else would've started a "why did bamnan get banned" thread eventually, so suck it up, _w
with just trying not to act like a dick.
we should all try not to act like dicks really, this is how these threads start.
maybe bamnan just thought 'a bit of shit-stirring's always fun, especially when i'm stuck at work bored all day' when he called bamos a gouty cunt.
you lot are all as bad as each other really when it comes to this ridiculous bitching.
Can someone take over the gaming thread please? The video game discussions, the ridiculous drama threads (much like this one, though there hasn't been nearly enough personal abuse thrown around for my liking) and the pun threads are all I really read on here these days. And I'm far, far too lazy to do it myself.
the internet <3
what a twat.
also, its an internet message board, not the U.N.
why do the people doing the banning have to be consistent?
that this forum is a massive, matey, circle jerk-athon.
It will naturally end up with a bunch of people who tend to feel the same way about stuff.
I don't know about it being a 'circle-jerk' it's just the way of things.
its clearly not.
that's fairly obvious. I guess some folk can't see the wood for thetrees (not the user).
by the constant influx of new users. there are loads of people who posted here regularly a year / two years ago who now don't, and vice versa.
in fact this board has a pretty high turnover of users considering how much its apparently such an inbred circle jerk orama.
justice is served
god, i miss kik sometimes.
what does kik have to do with any of this?
guy on internet forum calls mod a cunt & gets banned shocker!
it just seemed like the kind of stupid thing kik would have said. i always liked that sort of thing.
you can be as insulting as you want, as long as it's funny.
is not directed at you.
who have gout
admit the illness himself.
One of my favourite things to do is come in first thing in the morning after something like this, and launch into a tirade about how pathetic the night shift are.
It's going to be difficult - although not impossible - for me to do blame them for this given it's happened entirely during the day.
is one of the biggest myths on dis. the day shift is just as bad, fact
on either day/night you have your mongs and you have your sound, intelligent people. you and i, i like to think we're the latter. let's not fight
you're right in that you get both good and bad at both times. It's just the nightshift tends to attract the 'omg I'ms so drunkz' posts. Or Vikram posts as I like to call them.
he's easily one of the worst users
where you can’t even go online and call a complete stranger a cunt? It’s a disgraceful state of affairs
Banning in T minus...
And then people would start gangraping him with CLASSIC BAMNAN and seeing if they could push him harder.
For what it's worth (less than zero) Bamnan was a good man to me, and supportive of n00bs in general.
Let us remember him as we knew him at his most vibrant.
Goodbye friend. Come back soon.
i think there can be a real gang mentality against a lot of people which probably adds to their persecution complex and makes them lash out more.
but, y'know. what you gonna do.
Classic ban man.
plus some other unimportant detritus that will be forgotten when he inevitably comes back tomorrow
or will that just get me banned as well? Because I haven't actually done anything... yet.
BAM BAM BAM, BAM BAM BAMNAM
OH BAM-NAN, OOH TAKE MY HAND
YOU GOT ME ROCKIN AND A-ROLLIN
ROCKIN AND A-REELIN
BAM BAM BAM BAM BAMNAN
BAM NAN NAN
This from DanielKelly is much worse: http://drownedinsound.com/community/boards/social/4220961#r5140082
oh sorry, didn't see the "with".
i was talking to someone who uses the somethingawful forums. there, you get banned just for making "low content posts", which can be anything from a "lol" to a repeated thread. let's PLEASE take up that policy.
that you were genuinely offended by something said to you? Do I need to take photos?
Though if you mean that response by DK then no-dice. You started a stupid thread and got a stupid answer.
and you never take them seriously. I'm at my wits' end, Theo, I really am.
in effect, a kind of "secret mod". My duties, if you will, would include dealing with problems such as Zapsta's here in a way which allows the "official mods" to bear no responsibility, while ensuring that Zapsta and others like him are free from digital tyranny.
My methods would be thus:
* Repeated spamming of nefarious evildoers.
* More spam.
* Hacking in extreme cases.
* Still further spam.
* Troll-lite, enticing the villains into overreaction and BOOM! having you ban them.
I think this could work. The DiS version of COINTELPRO.
I guess he's unbarred now, right?
Man, I want a pizza.
I quite liked him.
Fair play to him though, I'd love everyone to get so excited over me. Bet he's at home furiously masturbating to it all.
but everyone has a first time....I suggest you start starting some threads, immediately, dont think about it too much....just do it, also do not reconsider yourself too much when people criticise you
I'll always find it strange how none of the controversy that seems to dog your every post is reflected in your character.
FREE THE RUSHDEN ONE
Is he allowed back or anything?
