View Full Version : An apology to JAG dirested by Saturnas

Since I can't post in the backroom anymore, I just wanted to apologize to JAG for calling me a racist in this thread..

https://forums.totalwar.org/vb/showthread.php?t=35293

I'm glad that a person of your moral fiber called me something like a racist, because with terrorist, child molesting supporting persons such as yourself, I find your name calling a compliment.

And Saturnus, good luck with your "moderation". Funny word "moderation". It is close to "moderate" meaning in the middle, something you obviously know nothing about. Truthfully niether do I, but I don't have the rights to ban folks now do I to silence their opinions.

"This is an information in regard of your demotion at TotalWar.org:



Dave,

It took some time for us, but now the consequences of your behaviour
have
come. Your posting style has reached a new low lately. Iīm not gone
list all
your misbehaviour, but especially your outbursts at JAG have been the
worst
posts Iīve ever seen at this board. Maybe rivaled by squippyīs. I donīt
care
what reasons you have for that, such things are inacceptable and simply
donīt happen here. Since warnings seem not to have an effect on you, we
have
to take harsher actions. You are demoted to Senior Patron and are no
longer
allowed to post in the Backroom. The other areas of the Org are still
open
to you.

On a more personal note: We have given you chance after chance and this
is
how you thank us! I do not deny that your presence at the Tavern has
been
enriching it, but I will not tolerate that members are treated like you
have
done in a forum where Iīm Moderator. Iīm personally disappointed by you
and
within the staff, Iīll vote against your reentry into the Backroom as
long
as I donīt have a clear sign of lasting improvement. Itīll be some hard
work
to convince me. A serious apology to JAG would be a good start.

I wish you well.

Saturnus"

So there's my apology. ~:joker:
I'm sure this will be deleted and edited so it doesn't upset the tranquility of the ORG.

Hey squippy, congratulations, you lasted longer than I did!!! ~:joker:

It's good to see that Devastatin Dave is on the road to recovery: not a single f-bomb, or X-rated description of a sex act. Still have to work on those flames and personal attacks - but hey!, it's only been a couple of days. Keep trying, m8.

Side note: never put anything anywhere on the internet that you'd not like to see on tomorrow's NY Times front page - there is no privacy on the 'net, as has been demonstrated above.

It is strange seeing you scream blue murder at the mods because that is pretty much exactly what I did when I was demoted for what I preceived as nothing. I guess it just highlights to me the hard job they do have and that we should try and respect them a bit more than we generally do in the backroom. I would also like to say sorry to them if I did cause offence.

Dave I understand that your very pee'd off at the moment, I would too in your position. But don't let your emotions control you too much, I am sure you will regret this post in a few days time and the damage would have already been done, I don't want to see you gone from the tavern. For the record you don't need to apologise to me, I do not take offence at any personal comment or any other comment on these boards, so don't feel like you need to. I probably did push the mods to dicipline you because I was taken aback more than anything with a few of your posts at me, as I would not say that about someone of whom I didn't even know. But I never wanted you gone from the tavern, understand that was never on my mind and I hope that still that isn't what happens.

Cool down a bit mate before posting anymore here.

Hmm. Well i looked in the thread Dev showed and i really dont see anything that should have gotten him demoted.

Well Saturn, i think you should pm Jag and tell him to give a "serious apology" to everyone he called racist, dumb, or a stupid "kiddie conservative". If you like i will post the threads where Jag constantly flamed (if wi can find them) against anyone religious, conservative or young, and the mods did nothing about it. Im sure there are many here that will agree with me.

09-11-2004, 16:30
If you think nothing happened to me you need to open your eyes.

If you think that the material which was the cause of this has not been deleted / edited and was only in that thread, you also need to open your eyes.

Why oh why must you try and turn this into a flame war thread Hiji, it solves nothing

Hosakawa Tito

Such a backhanded non apology, a private message would have sufficed rather than this. A private message to convey your F bombs etc..., instead of posting them for all to see, would have helped avoid the demotion also. But then, what's the point if one can't "play to the crowd" eh? I suggest some of you use the ignore/enemy button and just avoid talking to the people you can't stand, instead of this Three Stooges routine.

Hiji , the worst of what was said has been saved, and then edited out of the public thread. It would be considered "normal" interaction in a jailhouse setting, but completely unacceptable here. Not that it's any of your business , but both parties have been dealt with.

Navaros
09-11-2004, 20:58
since this is a public discussion i will throw my 2 cents in:

i am not happy that Dave got demoted.

it is my belief that if we are mature, intelligent people, then there is no need to silence any opinions, no matter how controversial. God didn't give any of us the "moral authority" to silence things that we do not like to hear. it is inherently unfair that certain things are silenced here, yet other even more offensive things are not. "offensive" of course is a subjective term, but it is subjective to all of us, not just some. even to Moderators and Admins. that is why having rules that silence certain comments because they are "offensive" can never truly be fair.

now, don't get me wrong. i realize the Mods have the legal authority and are within their rights to silence whatever they want to. i'm not disputing that. to quote a wise Klingon Diplomat: "just because we can do a thing, it does not follow that we must do that thing." which IMO applies to this situation: yes the Mods can silence people, but that doesn't mean that they should .

on a final note, JAG is not exactly a "pillar of morality" himself. i have witnessed occasions of JAG making personal attacks on other members. hence, it is especially unfair to silence Dave for the very same thing that JAG has done, yet JAG does not get silenced as well.

Point of order: Dave has not been "silenced"; he started this thread. He is being denied posting priviledges in the Tavern.

JAG has 'done his time' in the time-out box as well, it simply wasn't made public. Just as Dave's time-out wouldn't have been made public; he chose that. Hence this discussion.

As always, moderator actions are performed mostly behind the scenes; we try persuading, cajoling, joking, whatever-it-takes, to insure compliance with the forum rules that all here agreed to abide by when we registered. Usually, that 'persuasive' approach works, and members fix whatever the problem was. Other times, 'persuasive' doesn't work, and stricter sanctions are applied.

I'm sorry you are unhappy, Navaros. Me too. I want the Org to be a place where members respect each other in their words, and afford each member the personal dignity they deserve. Someday, we'll have that.

Beirut
09-12-2004, 02:01
It's a shame the Dave is out, for the more opnions the better. But without a doubt there must be a moderated level of discourse lest this forum degenerate into anarchy.

Forums that have no standards are the least interesting. Having enforced standards of behaviour encourages people to think and chose the best words to suit the argument, as opposed to the easiest words, which often are little more than comments about the other person's mother.

I'm looking forward to Dave coming back. I don't agree with much of what he says, but he absolutely should be here saying it.

Great post, I deserved my banning. And no, I'm not sorry. JAG and I have gone back and forth forever and a day. Does it mean I hate him, hell no, he's a great guy and I've promised him that if he's ever in the States, he can saty at my house and I'm going to take him on a tour to some Civil War battle fields. We both know what gets under out skins and we both, I'm sure, enjoy the rhetorical boxing match. I said some real harsh stuff in the thread that Goof and JAG called me a racist in, it got edited. So after that, I went on the attack. That's just me. Maybe its better that the mods keep me out of the Tavern. So JAG, I'm sorry i hit under the belt a few times, but I'm sure you liked it!!! ~:argue:

Sat, sorry I mispelled your name!!! ~:joker:

Everyone knows the sort of hot headed irrational posts I make at times and considering this is the God knows how many times I've been banned or warned, the mods are doing the right thing.

I'm the dirty underbelly of the extreme right. For that, I deserve much of what i recieve because I dish out some real filth. So I'm well deserved in my banning and could use the vacation.

Am I apologizing? Nope, just keepin it real my niggahs!!! Word to yo mutha :afro:

Demon of Light , Kukri, Saturnus, and I always discuss issuance of warnings and/or demotions on a case by case basis. However, in regards to demotion we don't have the final say, that is up to the admins. We present the case, our recommendations, then it's out of our hands. Irregardless, each and every patron is in control of the entire situation. Your actions/deeds determine how things play out. It's like I tell the cons in the jail I work at, "I didn't put you here, YOU put you here."

Capo , ever hear the expression "feed them enough rope and they hang themselves" ? None of the moderators want, enjoy, get off on issuing warnings and/or presenting a patron to administration for possible demotion. As Kukri has stated,
As always, moderator actions are performed mostly behind the scenes; we try persuading, cajoling, joking, whatever-it-takes, to insure compliance with the forum rules that all here agreed to abide by when we registered. Usually, that 'persuasive' approach works, and members fix whatever the problem was. Other times, 'persuasive' doesn't work, and stricter sanctions are applied. It's a hell of a lot of work to read the volumes of posts in here, and then write pm's to those that are breaking forum rules and try to get them to comply, and that's before any serious action has to take place for the recalcitrant ones. Ask yourself, why do we bother?
Wouldn't it be easier to just be petty tyrants and "off with their heads, who gives a damn"?
Figure it out.

Capo, thanks for your support, but keep posting in the Backroom. I got what I deserved. Please don't get rude to Tito, if you could see the MANY warnings he has personally given to me you'd support the decision. I've kept the Mods busy every since I've been in the Tavern, so I am sure they can use the vacation as well. Well, they still be working hard since Capo WILL continue to post in the backroom!!! ~:joker:

But I think this thread can be productive because it can give an inside look to the less contriversal posters or would be mods on how the mods deal with the more contriversal members such as myself. So I hope the members ask proper questions and listen and understand the answers.

Kaiser of Arabia

Hosakawa Tito
09-13-2004, 23:01
Capo , you wondered aloud why you were not demoted. Taking Dave's place (behavior-wise) is the surest path to having that unpleasant event take place. I'm not familiar with your latest screw up, I was "out of action" that week. However, receive 5 formal warnings and your demoted for a minimum of 2 days, the gravity of your misdeeds will of course determine if more time, more quickly is in order. Everyone makes mistakes LEARN FROM THEM, but if you constantly push the boundaries of acceptable behavior, you just may find yourself demoted. I don't want that, I don't think you do either. That's what I'm "on about". Is that plain enough?

Devastatin Dave
09-14-2004, 03:32
Good explaination Tito. Capo, if you could see the amount of email warnings that the mods have sent me and the mulitple chances that were given to me, you'd understand more why I was demoted. Like I said before, use my experience constructively. When posting be strong but not too harsh. A rock breaks the same whether beaten with a hammer or placed in a gentle stream. Just look at the approach that Redleg takes. Believe me, its hard not to attack and go for the throat, but you can achieve your arguement with the same devastation with careful, surgical arguements.

Also, ok, now I getcha. I was just saying that I have been in a situation similar to Dave
("racist" comments, flame wars, etc. and although I did not read Daves posts, I assume that I have done nearly the same thing and have not been demoted. thats all.

Exactly. But sometimes I'm a rebel without a cause!!! I'm a very hard headed person and very opinionated and have NEVER been abdle to use tact with much success. That's why I'm an E-5 with almost 10 years in the Air Force!!! ~:joker: When I say things, a lot of the times, I don't quite take a gentle aproach to it. Just ask some of my troops!!!

Capo, I don't thing that Tim was being hostile. He stated why and you kind of shot back. Read what he wrot and what you wrote again, you'll see. Sometimes it takes someone from outside of a disagreement to see the tone. I'm such a hypocrite!!! ~:rolleyes: But I that's just who I am. Yes, I'll admit I'm a bit self rightous and always want the last word, but as we all can see, sometimes its better to choose your battles carefully.

Back to the moderation. Could one of the mods explain the process of how the moderators deliberate corrective action against violators? In my case, and in the case of repeat offenders, does the leash get shorter and shorter? Thanks for the insight thus far....

I am not being hostile toward you Capo. I'm trying to steer you away from unacceptable posting behavior in the forum. I much prefer to reason with you than to have you demoted. I believe you are reading something into my words that isn't intended to be there.

LOL - I have gotten a few PM's concerning Yellow Cards and even a minor punishment once or twice - the have to wait 2 minutes between posts and no editing.

I normally don't get to offensive unless someone's over the top comment gets my temper and emotions up. Other then that I try to use reason - before emotion. But even then I sometimes go to emotion in my response - especially given some comments by certain individuals in the tavern.

That post was of the kind that makes members leave and never return. Since all actions we took against you before were obviously in vain, tell me what choice we have to prevent such things from happen? Thatīs why I for one, donīt consider your demotion as a simple time out after that you can go on like before. What I wanna see is a lasting change. Either a change in your behaviour or in your presence. I would prefer the first option, but the choice is yours.

Man, who pissed in your pourage this morning!!! ~D
I've already went through the situation, so I'm not going to go through it again. You sit back and let everyone on the left call people whatever they want then you jump in when someone on the right stands up against the flame. So, yes, you're biased and the fact that you posted what you just did shows that you have issues with someone pointing out your bias. So calm down, relax, and continue your "even handed" moderation. Have you even read through this thread? Didn't you see the attempt to be reasonable? Of course you didn't. That would require you to let go of some of your biases. :book:

This thread makes me worried that one day soon the moderators are going to get fed up with spending their leisure time moderating the tavern, a seemingly thankless task, and recommend to the admin that it should be shut down. And I think it would be a shame if that was to happen.

It seems to me that half the time when the moderators edit some swearing or a flame, they get accused of political bias. I've seen the moderators being accused of being biased against the left on more than one occasion as well, and I have come to think that accusing the moderators of bias is basically like a football manager who blames biased refereeing for the fact that his team is bottom of the league.

Once again Capo, you have made an ignorant statement without any thought to what might really be going on. Did you ever stop to think that maybe there are a lot of warnings/scoldings issued to liberals in the Org that you don't know about because they are done via private message? I guess not.

Does that mean you got a warning/scolding for calling me a racist? Somehow, I doubt it...

I think by looking at this board we should start our own UN.

Nah, we've got more accomplished than the UN ever has!!! ~D
Ooops, I'm not allowed to state political things anymore since the German Ambasodor has sanctioned me!!! Better pass a resolution quick. Don't worry, I'll give some of you guys some kick backs and pay-offs, then it will really be like the UN!!!

In that case no. You want to know why Dave? Two reasons:

1) I didn't say you were a racist, I said your remarks were racist.

2) Your remarks were, undoubtedly, very racist.

I have, however, been issued warnings for using such a violent and destructive weapon as sarcasm.

Christ Goofball, it was a joke...

Stop calling me ignorant because of jokes, I may take offence to it.

Grrr, you really must hate me.

And stop calling DevDave racist. ~;)

Another post that shows you paid no attention to what I actually said. I don't hate anybody in the Org. Hate is a very strong, personal, and intimate emotion. Since I have never met you, I couldn't possibly hate you. I do, however, hold some of your ideas in contempt.

Goofball: Consider the relative age difference between you and Capo and then ask yourself if you REALLY want to continue a debate with him.

Goofball: Consider the relative age difference between you and Capo and then ask yourself if you REALLY want to continue a debate with him.But that's exactly the point, Demon. It would be easy to just say to myself "Oh, he's only a kid who doesn't know what the hell he's talking about, and therefore he's not worth my time so I'll just ignore him."

But I think that's one of the problems with how young people are treated today, and why so many of them grow up to feel (at best) disenfranchised or (at worst) helpless and violent. In fact, I think Capo is one of the people in the Org who are most worth my time debating with, because he is young enough that some of his views may still be changed.

So, I will continue to debate with Capo. When he expresses points of view that I disagree with, I will say so and challenge him on his ideas. When he says something that I believe is "beyond the pale" (i.e. something that I believe to be racist or hateful), I will clearly and firmly tell him why I believe those kind of remarks are unacceptable, just as I would do with any young person I was having a discussion with.

Right now he thinks I hate and despise him, because he doesn't realize that disapproving of things he says is not the same as disapproving of him. I'm hoping he will figure that difference out soon.

I know the difference, however, after a point, it has become obvious that you hate me and all i beleive in. I don't really care, but at least admit it.

IN what way did I construde anything racist? It appears to me for you to come to that conclusion from what I said must mean that you yourself has inner beliefs that would bring you to a conclusion of racism on my part. Maybe you should take a closer look into your heart. Once again, this shows that liberals can call people racist or whatever in these forums and not get so much as a look from certain mods. You have to flat out call someone Hitler (if its a liberal doing the name calling or labeling) to have ANYTHING done to you. You and JAG called me a racist, and no matter which way you or JAG or Sat spin it, you guys did it and got away with it. Congratulations.

And Capo, if you don't change your views, you are a racist and will not be allowed to post in the Tavern again... ~:)

Saturnus is not the .orgs top power if he had made an unfair decision those above him could correct this and his equals could also complain

if you think you are being treated unfairly try sending a PM to Tosa hes a pretty nice guy and pretty fair also (though i think the same about sat when you do not)

don't mean this as i think sats decision was unfair...

personally i like dave and his opinions (well being mostly wrong ~;) ) are usually entertaining and i'd like to see him back, but thats why im not a moderator I not the .org come first....

And saying somebody shouldn't debate with soembody because they're too young is just wrong. I wouldn't want to be treated that way.
