Truth. As a senior mod over there, I saw PLENTY of shenanigans. "Get this guy banned" was a SPORT over there. No one tries that shit here because the dregs remained in situ and the higher quality posters made the move. On top of that, there's just no market for it here. It wouldn't play if people DID try it - it actually WAS tried earfy on by a lefty who baited one of the right wingers into making a kid comment - and the attempt was met with no encouragement.
The only times I suspended anyone over there was when I knew for sure that another mod would give them far MORE time off - except, of COURSE, for that faggot molly, whose account I banned, spammed, suspended, bent, folded, spindled and mutilated. I shot him. I shot him, and then I hung him. I shot him, and then I hung him, and then I burned him.
I was feeling mighty bloody that day.
It took those niggers WEEKS to reactivate his account - with me apologising all the while. And then I did it again
And then I left. And I stayed gone for 9 months. Cold turkey. That's why I'm amazed when folks over here wanna play around the edges of outing other posters. That I won't tolerate it isn't a rumor - it's an historical fact. The only thing that brought me back to that board - as herman two feather - was the isolation of the frozen north. I was sitting in a trailer in 30 below with no job and no intention of SEEKING a job until the weather abated a tad, But I never forgot what kind of shithole rutstein wanted to run.
When the opportunity to settle in to more resonant and more habitable digs presented, I required no recruiting or pursuading. That course had been set when david rutstein allowed molly to out 5-0 and pass his boss's phone number around for people to try to get him fired. Demanding that I purchase soap from him or I had been "wasting his time" was an insult which - even if he HAD been upkeeping his shitty 1990s board - I found beyond my ability to brook.
And just look at us now. We're still a bunch of addicted losers, but we have a much nicer board to be addicted losers ON. We can all sticky threads and pm and purchase peanut gallery threads which give us senior mod controls in our own threads. I don't want to say the board admin over there was a poopy control freak, but the board admin over there was a poopy control freak. I gave anyone - right or left - any title they asked for, if they were a regular poster. That got on his nerves - he deleted several. Being nice to folks BECAUSE i COULD was an apparent abuse of my godlike powers, in his mind. Well, guess what. I'M admin now (theoretically - still waiting for my admin software - but NOMINALLY, I'm the man). So I can be as nice as I want to all you nigger lovers, and no one gets to nay say me.
I'm nice in my own way.
