I wouldn't say it's banworthy, just a really bizarre and factually inaccurate thing to bring up. Anyway, he reckons he's gone for a long time so save the ban request for next week.
and that's coming from me
you meal deal prat
The site needs to be fixed. Fun, isn't it?
Or did he stockpile loads of accounts before it was closed, JUST IN CASE?
Or are lurkers donating their login details to him?
Or is someone just doing quite an accurate impression?
Bit weird that innit.
Someone's helping him to sign onto the site, I reckon.
He's just a massive cunt but he's probably someone some writer on here knows and thinks is a great laugh down the pub. Probably a bit like Chris-Budget's mate who's a cheat.
KevinFinnerty and MajorCriiimes have both posted months before now. I think before he decided he was internet famous he swapped accounts every couple of months or so and is currently working through the backlog now he can't make any new ones.
The internet's space for cunts is infinite.
Or is he relatively new? Sorry, I've been away. Half the people seem to have different names now, which is confusing.
Mere Pseud Bag Head.
Seems like someone that could easily be ignored.
Says the guy who makes the awful Radiohead threads. Surely everyone makes pointless threads/posts? Some more than others, but I think it's peculiar how much hate this guy elicits from forum users. I don't know the guy but he doesn't seem like the worst. Does anyone else not read thread titles and say 'fuck this I'm not reading it?'
why is he singled out? I read racist/sexist/miscellaneous ignorant bullshit all the time on here, not just from him.
but it's SO annoying.
That's some middle school shit but whatever. Why is this site so Lord of the Flies sometimes?
Racism: rare enough that we can (or could when banning was generally an option) ban someone for it. If you read it all the time then I'd appreciate you messaging me so we can at least try to delete offences.
Sexism: regrettably this is so much more contentious. There are so many guys on here who seem to think sexism isn't an issue that to try to ban everyone for being sexist would be pretty spectacular in its effect on the boards. It didn't really used to be that way but there you go. We do ban (again, did before we couldn't) ban people for persistent arsehole-ness.
Miscellaneous Ignorant Bullshit: You may have to be more specific here.
This isn't about writing a set of cast-iron rules in any case. If you just want to ban people for using a racist word without considering all kinds of contexts then you get a computer program.
Naturally well-known members are given more leeway. And we do attempt to work out when something is actually irony rather than simply ignorant or trollish bullshit.
And finally, it's occasionally worth leaving a particularly offensive bit of rubbish because all the replies that come after it do a lot more to point out its fallacy or general utter crap than deleting it entirely would.
And i don't believe a mass banning of users is what DiS needs. I'm not the most poignant poster myself. I think overall the moderators do alright at getting the insufferable assholes removed, despite their occasional alright moments. I just don't feel MSPH is one of those people. My biggest qualm is that, if he were a more seasoned user that had prominent friends on the forums, he'd probably be tolerated a lot more. I just feel like he's being singled out when he's really no worse than some of us. The moderators will ban who they will; I'm just someone who thinks he doesn't quite deserve to be banned.
is still holding the conch
-at least not all the time. He can be quite funny and coherent when he's not busy sabotaging himself. His problem, if anything, is quality control. again, not the only DiS forum user with that problem.
It's just when he starts threads like that 10 Sixth Form Opinions To Defend thread he started the other day, they just come across as hackneyed and boorish when he probably thinks he's being all arch and ironic.
Trying to be provocative for the sake of it usually is.
Didn't realise he was Kevin Finnerty, he was boring too, but I had more tolerance for him then for some reason.
And I try to be nice to most people if I can.
Too many people here think they're King Of The Boards and, having long lost the ability to come up with anything even vaguely interesting themselves, seem to occupy their time with arrogantly slapping down other people's opinions, rather than engaging with them.
The muslims thing is tedious, as in the tenuous extended analogies and similes that seem to adorn the bottom of EVERY BLOODY POST he makes, but it's obviously meant in jest and not strong enough for a banning offence.
In contrast, cat_race seems to be well-liked and mentioned in plenty of threads that aren't even anything to do with him, and his last contribution to the boards was 'dick, dick, balls'. Go figure.
with his sincere desire to "engage" with people
and so despite being an equally insufferable cretin is given a great deal more leeway than Meer Soup, it's true.
But I don't know him from Adam, so to me he's just someone who knows posts dreck on an otherwise good message board. If it's really Morrissey then fine, all is forgiven. But something tells me it's more likely to be Joe Lean or someone shit like that.
<<i saw a porn the other day where a guy jizzed on a cake and then the girl ate it>>
<<but imagine if me and you were in a long term loving relationship and i wanted to see you eat a tuna steak i had spaffed on. does that make a difference?>>
Not exactly rejected This Charming Man lyrics though.
the idea that c_r is morrissey or joe lean
Also Adam is much taller
Is he Mick Hucknall?
thinking you were asking if Mick Hucknall was my dad.
Please don't scare me like this.
He genuinely wants to talk about music like a 20 year old edition of Melody Maker. It's pretty tragic unless we're discussing someone or something that's from that era.
It's a pretty accurate description of how I go about looking at music.. in a very cosy, woolly-jumper, football still being the people's game and terracing still being around way.
I'm smack in the middle of 1992.
But it's the good one on April 11, with an opening run of Pretend We're Dead, I Am The Resurrection and Popscene. (and Am I the Same Girl.. big up to my dad who loves Swing Out Sister)
mainly his constant attention seeking and his belief he is the bastion of akll knowlede
1 part tedious wrightylew tryhard controversy, 1 part unnecessarily fixated _vikramly provocation, 1 part third rate copy of the second rate cat_race project, 1 part what Theo said about the Melody Maker.
and then acting like a southerner. bad.
Northerners, and Lancastrians, have given the planet some quite brilliant people who've made me very proud of the Red Rose county.
But it annoys me that we aren't celebrated for our inventors, scientists, and political activists but overrated manchild comedians who joke about meaningless bullshit like garlic bread. I'm no humourless prude, I just don't like it how a lot of people from my way play dumb day in, day out..
it's about you being annoying and needy. stop doing that.
But I'll admit I've been seeking it too much recently. I think what happens is, when I'm in real life, I'll soak up different pop culture references (music, TV, films, food, eye candy, whatever.. usually with a silly kitsch retro theme) like a giant sponge, then when I get back on these forums I vomit them all up in five seconds flat. I know most DISers try hard to create a potent online "personality" but the above Is just self-indulgence, and I'm sorry if people get annoyed by it.
In future I'll try and talk about things more interesting than saying "Huh huh huh! Isn't guilty pleasure Italo-disco made by honorary trannies with tacky crucifixes from 1988 really funny!! Huh huh!!" Because I know I'm not everyone's cup of tea on this forum, and would never intend to be, but I don't want to end up becoming these forums'.. oh God.. Tesco Value Harry Hill.
No idea where you seem to have got the "racist" accusations from, and I find that a little bit offensive. If I have joked about, say, Islam, it's mocking the stereotypes of the faith from thick-as-pigshit EDL members and not people who believe in the religion itself. But yeah, as the Red Hot Chili Peppers would say, it's a repeat and it's getting old. So I'll clean up my act a bit.
P.S. You lot do need to get laid a bit more.
But I don't like to call it that because it reminds me of the song Everyday Combat, which of course opens Lostprophets' third album.. and I don't like to hum their songs milkman-style in t'current climate, you know?
this would have irked me as a pointless reference. But with the new concept of you being a budget HH it actually works out alright.
I no longer want you to throw yourself down a well. Happy Monday old chap.
which boring troll being boring is mark_boobies?
'liberal bigotry'. It's the same guy.
Is he being racist or something? It's all written weird.
My general view on these things is we need to stop banning people just because they have opinions other people cry about.
Ban trolls, not opinions.
its the arc of;
him starting an account and announcing he is MPBH and that he has changed his ways.
posting a couple good threads.
starting to post more threads that get more self-refrential.
starting to post strange things about islam.
making a post about changing his ways.
posting offensive comments a couple days later.
starting a new account a week later.
i didn't think this thread would get more than 5 replies to be honest.
I get your point. Wasn't really passing judgement as I have no clue what the post was he wrote. It's like written by a drunk 4 year old.
As it was originally conceived, a good number of users are "trolls", (CG, KiK etc.) since they use inflammatory opinions to wind up sensitive DiS souls. But if used as Richard Bacon did, then a troll becomes someone quite offensive, with nothing valid to contribute, like that Russian guy. Generally, on DiS at least, the first definition is agreed upon, but banning CG or KiK would be ridiculous. Additionally, MajorCriiimes/MPBH has only been an example of the former for some time now, so banning him wouldn't be called for (so at least we agree on that).
