So don't worry too much about it. If you guys discuss it, you try to remain consistent, and you are serving the stated priorities of your role, then that's about all you can do. (Of course, I assume that a priority is maintaining the most level of diverse conversation as possibly while removing toxic elements that ultimately drive membership away.) Anyway, this thread was just a rehash of prior bans, nothing new. ;)
My only disappointment in Intolerable being banned is that I wasn't here to make a smartass comment in the thread before it got locked. Alas.
... stepping back a moment, I will say you will always have a faction who will disagree with mod decisions. Sometimes it is the same faction. Such is life. People have different priorities and so will disagree over each other's decisions if it violates their priorities.
I don't know if others are experiencing this, but the section detailing "top 5 stats, latest threads & posts" hasn't been loading for me for the last few days (just says "loading..."). Was unsure if this was a known technical bug.
I am drawn to it because I cannot create it myself. I really want to have transcendent experiences because of the emotion and beauty. But the only times that has happened was when I saw art and computer animation and listening to music. I am so sad that my mind in empty and I cannot create stuff in there or see it. So I just remember how I felt before and take my collections and put them together. I have thousands of pictures, lots of music videos on youtube. But it's not enough because it's not a living jewel. The Animatrix has animation I like. I hope virtual reality can be like that someday. Life seems so dull.
Yes I know I was being out of line there. But is it so bad to react strongly to repugnant opinions? I feel the only times people listen to me on these issues is when I show my anger. Anyway I think this might be my last post in a while, I'm aware that I'm being toxic lately and I'm taking a break for that reason
Ok the first two fair enough, calling people stupid is an ad homineum but using heuristics to solve moral dilemmas is objectively stupid, I gave that example about alleyways to demonstrate this, calling something stupid isn't an ad homineum if doing it actually is stupid.
I will refrain from posting in that thread until we can come to some sort of understanding on what is and isn't fair game because otherwise I'm just going to get myself in trouble for what I see as calling a spade a spade.
this guy continuously perved at me at the gym and one time when it was just me and him he came over to me while i was squatting and grabbed my ass!!!! i was so shocked i lost form and broke my back!!!!!!!!! now im in a wheelchair!!!!!!
I'd like to read a story about an angel and devil in a tabletop RPG world tasked by the gods to travel around dealing with people who have found exploits in the world's rules, protecting the stupid gold based economy (which they bitch about endlessly) preventing industrialization by savy wizards, stopping dhampirs exploiting the negative energy damage from anatomy dolls, etc. In fact this would make a great anime, reality checking game logic while preventing the wacky villain of the week from conquering the world.
I thought you'd say that after I posted. There's more activity on the forum, so there's probably some things irl being slightly neglected.
Influential isn't actually the right word either, of which I was avoiding. You don't seem controlling or jerky, though that may be the personal way I'm reading your stuff. Since that last mafia game, you seem a little more open about yourself, and also open to other people's thoughts and POV's.
But then, that could be just my perception of what I'm reading as I'm comparing it to the earlier hado with a shirtless guy covered in blood and butchering something on a workbench as an avatar. I don't remember reading much of his stuff though.
