why was he banned? coz EmO had a little cry?
reinstate him forthwith, please.
get him back (and give me a link to the beef)
Just like firing up liveleak and reliving the magic
every time he makes an OUTRAGEOUS comment in a death thread, then immediately retracts it like a coward
plane crash thread?
you're a very peculiar internet denizen
we BEGGED for them to let you back in
Rather than outright banishment?
he does seem a bit conceited in his opinions, and very intolerant of others'. maybe best to keep him banned until he can learn to be a better member of the DiS society. i'm always a fan of that approach
ban brusma, reinstate m_w
very insensitive comment
and every time someone is insensitive
and every time EmO is offended
sort this place right out
- every time someone is mean in an SSP thread
- every time someone doesn't use appropriate trigger warnings
- every time someone is RFWare
might as well just step aside and let people with at least some character do everything for you, guys.
while people throw rotten matter at him, you know like Cersei. Probably the only way that he will learn. We could then welcome him back with open arms (once he is fully clothed again).
please don't ban me
s that one of the mods has to care enough to bother doing it
so, we'll see I guess
No wonder this place is dying
mostly at the sheer holistic achievement of the banning, the soul-searing scale of its cosmology
never fails to make me break out into a smile
He can have clapham_giles for £50 is he likes?
Was going to make it an open account anyhow
Can't see him going in for it
building a school for Mexcian infants in the Nepalese foothills with Ricky_Ronco.
But it's hardly the point!!!
posting here for posterity.
stay safe everyone. x
I am genuinely wondering why I'm on thin ice, though. Could you let me know just so my position with the moderation staff is transparent?
You're a site mod of a popular-ish internet forum. This is surely part of your commitment to the job. I'm now unsure about your credentials for the role
"Hold on a minute - this Diploma in Moderation from the University of Internets is a fake!"
Basically what my pm said. Making a crude joke about an event that very possibly traumatized one of the users of the site was in very bad taste and just unnecessary. People deal with tragedies in different ways, I understand that, but the overwhelming position of the site and its users has always been that shit jokes made after a tragedy or death in a thread just for shock-value is shit and tedious. Personally, my opinion is that it's simply best to just ignore these posts if they bother you (don't feed the troll etc.), but users have said they don't like this kind of thing going on. And fair enough too. Those kind of threads don't happen that often, so it's really not much to ask that people just don't be dickheads for these.
As for in general I tend to be pretty lenient but if anyone is blatantly horrible by way of being racist, sexist, or a bigot then it's an insta-ban. Otherwise it's a case-by-case basis because nothing is ever that black and white.
don't take the thin ice comment too seriously
I had no idea you were a mod. If I'd known I wouldn't have beaten you in the quiz last week. Please don't ban me Ant
waiting until you get to the cup final then BAM! s a b o t a g e
it wasn't really a joke, though - more a terse opening gambit concerning a widespread fascination with accident voyeurism and its half-sibling, coming-to-terms through exposure
my tone could easily have been misconstrued as exultant rather than ironic though so like sozzles everyone
taking constant shit from all the University Of Life types.
really posh kids get an even better chance of going to a top Uni....and fighting for a socialist utopia on weekends

so, he should be.
we're so close!
Far, far crossing the line of theraputic distancing, and just veering into straight up voyeurism.
What I'm asking is how can we ban the news.
bunch of journo cunts
bunch of shit poet hack twats
i'm outta here, see you tomorrow!
I'm thinking I'll chat to strangers on Instagram instead
just thought he was having a bad day and being a bit of a cunt.
who made you the DiS pundit?
stop wobbling and have the courage of your convictions for once
and I know that even though he has the potential to throw a tantrum, and sometimes say offensive things for a bit of attention, that he's not actually a bad guy.
I stand behind a temporary banning, sure, because I think that it was an insensitive shitty way of putting it, if what he SAID he meant was actually what he meant - but tbh it's not my decision, and when I put 'ban request' it was more in the meme sense/calling someone out for being a cunt (which obviously we can all be), rather than actually requesting a ban.
That smug little face reply did deserve it in the end though.
he once posted a video on here of him talking to his dog about his sexual insecurities. That alone should've been worthy of a severe kicking, nevermind a temporary ban.
