EJ goes to the polls *camera bulb flash* new [re: EJSunday]  

In reply to:

I voted No, obviously, as there never has been a "post what I like or I'll ban you" policy here. This is simply proven by the fact that noone has been banned for such a reason.


Though your one-liner description of my stance is inaccurate (my charge is that you also bowed to pressure from other users annoyed by dogz volume and quality of posts), I would be curious to hear your similarly succinct description of the exact policy you *did* invoke to qualify ddz74 for his banning.

See if you can refrain from passing the buck to Evan as Sysiyo attempted to do. If you went whinging to him to make a decision it is only further evidence you are not competent to hold your positions as moderators.

Say No More new [re: Monkeyboy]  

Well, the big issue is that Mods can make people here post only things the mods like by enforcing pressure on the posters. I'd love to learn how to do that next time NoControl is around.

The other thing is that Mods shouldn't insult other TWers. Fully agreed and never done by me, that is apart from once saying that I did not ***like*** dd74. Hm, pretty nasty insult indeed and way worse than the usual banter here. I apologise.

Did I already mention that I like dd74 now? I think I did in some other thread. Is that a breach of the moderator's codex as well? I mean this is tricky as those who I don't praise may live in fear now that the almighty EJ does not like them enough, so that they now feel the pressure to post endearing things in order to not risk a ban.

A bigger issue indeed, now that it is unfolding before me.

May I just say that I think you are a fabulous moderator EJ?




Now, just let me finish

I am behind the camera new [re: power2charm]  

In reply to:

This is slightly more difficult to explain in a succinct (nice word, had to look it up though) way but the core motivation for my support of the ban was that dd74 destroyed nearly all interaction and exchange on this board. I think I have made that clear in all those lengthy threads and discussions before and please spare me the repetition of all the details.

Now please answer this succinctly:
Why do you think I bowed to pressure from others?

Are you confusing listening to what other people have to say with being whimpish?

p2c: "If you went whinging to him to make a decision ..." Why should I have done that?

Who was insulted by me?

Who did I threaten with a ban because I did not like what he/she was posting?

Why do you turn your doubts about the correctness (which you are as entitled to as anybody else here) into simple allegations formulated like facts?

It's the lawyer in him.

Anyway, his TW crown is in real jeopardy here.


In this world second thoughts, it seems, are best.

In reply to:

Painocraft was a writing error on my part


I'm sorry I accused you of name-calling.

In reply to:

However, as an individual poster I felt you were flamebaiting.



No, I wouldn't do that.

Re: Long live Big Brother new [re: Arlequino]  

In reply to:

I don't really see where this complaint came from.


That's because you wouldn't recognise a joke if it walked up, introduced itself and stuck a pin in you.

In reply to:

I was initially going to use it to reply to Stu, but felt I ought to just say that I agreed with what all the mods have said about their duties. But then, I decided replying to Stu was best left to PMs, hence the really sucky post that's left here!


Believe me, the PM sucked the big one as well.

Chris (scary name coincidence, BTW, with your pal Twisty), I thought it was very strange that you were British and yet completely lacked any semblance of a sense of humour (almost as if you were an American or a German). Then I checked your profile and discovered that you were a southerner. Nuff said.

Allow me to step in here, for the good of Arlequino and the rest of TW, with a helpful little observation that helps me keep my dossier straight, so to speak:

When Stu says something that isn't funny, he's joking.

When Stuf says something that is funny . . . wait, shit.

I thought I had this thought out.

Just goes to show how wrong you can be.

Are you suggesting that you believe that p2c was being 100% serious with the initial post in this thread?
