Re: 1 & a 2 & a .... new [re: ohramona]  

In reply to:

Also to clarify, he'd be allowed 5 posts still in all non-Bowie fora, together: Coffee Shop, Artiste's, and Site Feedback.


This suits me just fine, I thank all of you who came up with this suggestion, 5 posts a day in coffee shop is adequate for me.

I'm much more interested in the Bowie fora, always have been, just that's it's been a tad slow of new ideas of late.

I shall post in the said Bowie fora's, as and when it seems fit, I shall not overpost as some seem to think.

In reply to:

I think he's hideously embarrassed to return. I haven't seen hair nor whisker of him since that 2nd PM.


Not embarrassed per se how could I be embarrassed anymore! I am more amazed at the size of this thread.

Thanks to Alan ( Pablo ) for suggesting this idea.

Thank you mods for implicating it.

Re: Because I have no friends here, I can say this new [re: eraserhead]  

In reply to:

Also, wouldn't it be better for the Dogz-haters to just bozo Dogz?


This has been discussed before and I agree to the anti-dogz crowd in that point - a lot of people answer dogz posts one or the other way, so it is impossible to ignore him just by bozoing him. It simply does not work that way.

The 5 posts rule was established to keep Dogz from posting exessivly. At least that was my impression. In case I was wrong about that, I think we should have used the good old method of kicking him directly (because of not liking his looks) without pretending to be something else than fucking nazis.

In case I was right and the rule was made to improve the forum rather than simply offering the opportunity to ban Dogz it worked for the last days and still works when he posts a message more. So the rule serves its purpose even if "offenders" are not banned immediatly.

Of course there are online communities which would not hesitate to ban anyone just posting in dogz' style for a whole day. But I doubt on any of those one could find a monkeyboy, beltene, phoenix for more than 24 hours or linked images of cunts or a tubgirl or whatever. Even I was banned in a german forum for posting pretty much the same style as here - how humourless can a mod to be even too much challenged my such a small dosis of humour. In the end it all had to do with the moderators' taste. So the only method for a mod to be able to ban without a specific break of rules (and before establishing the 5 post rule it was exactly that) is using like- or dislike patterns. I am glad that this is not the method our mods are using and that they are even discussing those issues openly in the forum instead of just exchanging some PMs with the personal favourites and the boards' bullies in order to keep their own asses safe.

Here we go! Clean Slate!


Does this mean you wait for Dogz to break the rule again or is it about the forum not annoying you and being a place to spend some time at?

Re: He Is Controllable new [re: EJSunday]  

In reply to:

Why don't you read on to the end? Than you would find that he was banned. That's the "not quite".


I see a lack of familiarity with the finer points of the English language isn't only the province of Herman.

Let's see - I say he was let off before, then you say 'not quite', then you say I'm completely right. In the same sentence. Is this some kind of German thing?

It's about me trying to forget about all of his past indescretions and this whole controversy and seeing if I can just enjoy myself. It didn't work when I first got back here, but perhaps...just perhaps, after all this nonsense Dogz will settle down. I know I can't count on any "x number of posts" rule really being useful. I can only count on what the mods see as unruly in their eyes. So no, I won't be counting posts or waiting for him to break the rule.

It also means that if Dogz replies to a thread I'm involved in and says something stupid I won't hesitate to call him on it, but I won't go all ballistic on him because of what he's done in the past.

What good does it do for me to bash my head against a brick wall? It appears that for a poster to be banned here it would take something really outrageous. That's a good thing (ie, Monkeyboy and others would have been banned from many other MBs and I would have missed out on their valued contributions) and a bad thing (ie Dogz would have lasted about 4 days and we would never even remember who he was today)

I don't really have any other option. The mods seem firm on keeping Dogz, and I'd really like to stay.

Re: He Is Controllable new [re: 96dbFreak]  

In reply to:

then you say I'm completely right.


Maybe that's a german thing but in case there is a "but" after the "that's right", it means that the author of the sentece does not mean that something is completly right. It is right apart from the fact delivered after the "but". So it is not quite right. Also not wrong. It is a bit complicated - we germans like that a lot.

Okay - I guess my attempt uses too many words at once... so perhaps EJ can have another go. Perhaps he can do it a bit more tabloid style with less words so it becomes easier for you to get into our funny german way of speaking the british language.

In reply to:

Phoenix: It's about me trying to forget about all of his past indescretions and this whole controversy and seeing if I can just enjoy myself.


Okay. That is exactly what I try as well.

Re: He Is Controllable [re: th0mas]  

Perhaps you should read what I said ("this is not the first time he's had a daily limit imposed upon him, exceeded it and been let off by the mods") and then read what EJ said ("He was let off the hook for overposting before") and tell me how that's "not quite", though a second later it's "that's right"?

In reply to:

The "british language" eh? Might that be Welsh? Or Cornish? Or Scottish Gaelic? Maybe that's the problem - you think you're speaking English, but it's actually Welsh.

In reply to:

I'm sure as *shit* not gonna take sides in a bitchout amongst a handful of my all-time favorite posters
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Why not?


Well, simply put, cause I just don't care that much one way or the other what happens to Dogz, and because I feel that ohro and K have defended their actions and positions well enough on this thread to satisfy me. If it's not good enough for Prism, Phoenix, or Anisette*, that's their decision.

Basically, I'm all about the love.

As a side note: K, if I ever call your mod credentials into question, please refer me to this thread, because I think your assessment of the situation has been spot on, and I commend you.

Fortunatly you are the first one smart enough to notice. But as you probably noticed we're all really, and I mean really, really freakin' stupid.

In reply to:

Okay... I knew my previous attempt would be too much for you. Let me try again:

That is what you said in your post:
1. he's had a daily limit
2. he exceeded it
3. he has been let off by the mods.

This is what EJ answered:
1. he's had a daily limit
2. he exceeded it
3. he has been let off by the mods
4. but he got banned temporarily. after the ban was over he returned with better posting habits and stuck to them for a while


Now it is your turn - spot the bit of information which EJ gave us but you did not. If you find it you will also find the key to your question, how EJ can find your post "not quite" right, but parts of it "right".

Hint: Maybe it will be easier for you if you first find the bits both posts have in common. The one left will be the one just appearing in EJs post and not in yours.

Hint II: As I pointed out before - too much between the lines for you obviously - it has something to do with the word "but".

If I give you any further hints it will be too easy, i mean really, really freakin' easy. And we both think you can do that on your own, don't we? So feel encouraged to give it a try.
