Okay. Why are so many threads getting closed? I realize that some people are going to get banned for spamming, but this isn't spam, it's serious stuff. I, for one, am still unclear on what exactly is/has been happening. Can you explain this to me, oh great moderator?

Is what punker drummer did earlier (i.e. making threads again and again after theyve been closed) a bannable offense, and if so how severe is the ban? I mean if it isnt something they regularly do, and its just a one off.

His name is Jeremy somthing

Anyway, in the forums, he is god, the mods are the dictators, and we are the peasants.

I'm not sure what exactly you're referring to but we've been cracking down a little bit on things that we find offensive... For example, I deleted that worthless 'jokes' thread about a week ago because it was nothing more than 120 racial slurs and I didn't care to see it anymore.

"Administration" is a s/n shared by most of the mods.

I can remember a couple of times seeing the "Administration" post in the gutiar forum answering questions, then deleteing the post and reposting with their regualr screen names.

None of the mods have ever actually met mx. Blasck Box saw him at a track meet once and that's closest any of us have been...

Anyway, everyone but me was picked for their activity and useful input in certain areas of the forums.

I was asked to be a mod when these new forums went up as the mods from the old forums had found better things to do or something...

I don't even know who you are! Tonight's the first time I've seen your name. But anyway, currently, you are not at risk. Not from me anyway. In answer to your earlier question. Yes, it is conceivable that you could become a mod. Contribute positively, and prove your maturity, and at some point down the road, if an opening becomes available, it is possible that you may be asked. Heck, almost anyone could be asked.

For me anyway, it depends on the situation. If someone is banned, and within a couple of minutes is back with a new screen name and spamming again, or has created a disrespectful username out of spite, then I will ban them, and continue to ban for a while whenever I notice that the IP matches their original IP.

If someone is banned and later returns, but behaves, then I'll give them the benefit of the doubt and I'll let them do their thing.

Other mods may have different methods though.

Heres a question. What do you mods hope to accomplish from banning us? There are always going to be spammers. Yeah you can try to ban us all. But that ruins this place. We don't need the mods and posters constantly at war with eachother. Yeah some of us spam too much. But fucking seriously... what does it hurt? I can see that it's bad when the server goes down because of it. But that hasn't happened in a while. Spam has really been cut down already since the time I joined.

Mods and posters need to put these petty grudges aside. Some posters spam too much. Some mods are too abusive. Both problems need to be fixed, not just the posters.

Banning us, like I said before, ruins this place. The people are what make mx great. It wont be the same without Pendrigh or Fattymatt. You start banning all the regulars and this place will turn to shit and you know it. I know that many of my posts have been deleted simply because a mod didn't agree with them. That is just fucking wrong.

Lets face it. We all spam. Even the mods. Spamming is part of forums. It is part of the fun. I know I've been cutting back on hardcore spamming lately. I've noticed many others doing the same. So seriously... fuck off. Stop trying to push us around because right now thats all you guys are doing anymore. This whole thing is stupid and easily fixable. Stop being such assholes and we stop spamming. That simple. Don't ruin this place by banning all the good people.

*wonders what he's going to do with all this free time that he will obtain through not spamming as much*

*joins chess club*

*realizes this post is spam, and that this thread is the wrong place to do it in*



ok ok ok

I really don't want to get banned...again. I'm pretty sure mx isn't going to be like "yeah sure, I'll unban fattymattk for the third time". The next time I'm banned it will probably be for good (especially since Black Box isn't here to ban me for no reason)...

so, I will cut back a bit. I bought 5 books today and plan on reading them. I'm also writing a lot of stuff lately, so I can keep myself busy with that. But the thing is, I'm not really sure how much is too much. So, if I get out of hand, someone (preferably a moderator) has to give me a warning so I can fix the problem.

How often do mods check the IP logged to see if you are a previously banned user returning?

*agrees*

I like the action thingies, because I think they are funny (some of the time), but I do realize that they are spam 90% of the time. I will continue to do them, but only as part of posts that are relevant to the thread title.

and I'm not going to stop my little conversations though.

jarviss: that's good

fattymattk: yep yep yep

jarviss: uh huh

fattymattk: *wants to make this funny, but has failed*

so yeah, my posts won't change much, but I will post less, and try to make them relevant more often.

Yes, we all spam a little. As you said, it's part of the forums and part of internet life. Sometimes it's fun. However, what gets us upset is when we see someone that has never made a useful contribution to forums. When that person's entire time on MX is spend making worthwhile posts that say things like, "*Spanks*", or "You're a cunt", or "I'm eating a sandwich right now." I think you can figure out the people I'm referring to here. These are people that have never ventured out of the pit. And when we see these people with post counts of around 10000, and every post they make is a stupid one liner or an insult, then yes, we get annoyed, and we flex the ban muscles.

Now, I understand you're still pissed off because someone sent you an email warning you. You've been discussed many times in the super secret mod forum. The only reason you haven't been banned yet is because a lot of the time, you're able to put together an intelligent thread or post. You have shown that you can argue with a brain. However, you have also been quick with the snappy one line insults and generally innappropriate comments. Without those little snide comments Agrim, we would love you. And I know you'll probably have a snide comment about this post and freedom of speech and what your rights are, so I'll leave you with this thought. Cursing and name calling gets you nowhere quick, and as has been said many times to many people; this is not a democracy. If you don't like how we run things, then feel free to go elsewhere or start your own forum.

We all try to be fair, and we understand that sometimes being silly is fun. Hell, I'd be a total hypocrite if I didn't admit that I have made some pretty inane threads and posts. The thing is though, they're at a minimum, and my posts are mostly helpful and useful.

Superdan... those snide remarks are what I am. The rest I pull out of my ass to make you guys happy.


There is a serious thread about pedophilia. I was commenting on how Britney Spears younger sister is hot. Pendrigh agreed with me. Then suddenly our posts were gone. I made another post. That was deleted. So were Pendrigh's. I don't see why they were deleted. You can't say they were spam. You can't say they were irrelavent. So the only other reason is because someone didn't agree. Which is bullshit. If the post is relavent, the contents of the post shouldn't matter. Period.

If Pendrigh remains banned I'm going to be upset. It doesn't matter if you don't agree with him or you don't like him. A lot of his posts are spam but hardly enough to merit an IP ban. It's bullshit. I also will be upset if PimpDaddy remains a mod. He's biased and abusive and shouldn't be given and power. He fucked up my pole this morning so Air Bud won the "Favorite disney movie" thread. WTF was that for?!? Like I said before, It's bullshit.

Here is a serious question for mods...


Why don't you take the forums less serious, and just chill and let people post. Sure, delete some posts, but the more people you ban, the less visitors MX has, and after a while, everyone is going to be banned... so why not just chill out and have a good time.

when they do bring it up to mx, why not have mx contact the person, to see the other point of view?

I've got to answer this one before I go to sleep.

The pedophilia thread was mostly serious. And yes, you commented on how hot the 8 year old is. But you should know by know that a lot of people here can't handle an offhand comment like that. immediately after you posted that, pendrigh decides it would funny to describe how cool it would be to bust his nut on an 8 year old's face. i don't give a fawk what other people think, but I find crap like that innappropriate for a board like this and it was not relevant to the thread. It took a mostly serious discussion and turned it into crap. Yes, it offended me. It offended others too. We discussed it in the mod forum, and action was taken. i'm not apologizing for supporting his ban, and I'm not supporting his return. Neither are the other mods I've talked to about this.

As for the whole "Air Bud" fiasco, I haven't got a clue what you're talking about, so you'll have to check with Pimp on that one.

Time for sleep. All this banning has made me tired. :lol:

So what your saying Superdan is you banned Pendrigh because he said he wanted to cum on Britney's sister's face?? It might be a little off color but how is that ban worthy?!? If it was for spam then thats dumb because he's cut down his spamming A LOT lately and you know it. A lot of us used to be a lot worse I dunno why your doing this crack down now.

Pendrigh is a good guy and will be sorely missed by many of us. If you don't like him thats your problem. Banning him is prejudice and complete bullshit. Even if every god damn mod on here hates his guts, that still give you no right to ban him.

C'mon we all make crude comments now and then. This is complete and total bullshit. You can't fucking ban him. I mean, 70% of the time, hes the life of the party. Plus hes the only guy who agrees with me EVER.

Please aleviate my anger by giving me a valid reason why he is banned permanetly. One stupid comment does not merit a fucking ban dude. You mods are being selfish assholes.

Would mods which aren't anymore (Josiah, BlackBox) be able to see topics on the top secret board?

dude...look at the post that is about 8 posts above the one you got banned for...

...The pedophilia thread was mostly serious. And yes, you commented on how hot the 8 year old is. But you should know by know that a lot of people here can't handle an offhand comment like that. immediately after you posted that, pendrigh decides it would funny to describe how cool it would be to bust his nut on an 8 year old's face. i don't give a fawk what other people think, but I find crap like that innappropriate for a board like this and it was not relevant to the thread. It took a mostly serious discussion and turned it into crap. Yes, it offended me. It offended others too. We discussed it in the mod forum, and action was taken. i'm not apologizing for supporting his ban, and I'm not supporting his return. Neither are the other mods I've talked to about this.

I didn't ban pendrigh. I suggested and totally agree with it, but I did not do it.

Yes it does. We're here because mx respects our judgement. That comment was beyond the limits of what I view as appropriate. i'm not going to justify my actions. If you can;t see how a comment like that is wrong, then you have issues.

Originally posted by Agrim

C'mon we all make crude comments now and then. This is complete and total bullshit. You can't fucking ban him. I mean, 70% of the time, hes the life of the party. Plus hes the only guy who agrees with me EVER.

You're right. I can't ban him. Someone else already took care of that for me.

Originally posted by Agrim

Please aleviate my anger by giving me a valid reason why he is banned permanetly. One stupid comment does not merit a fucking ban dude. You mods are being selfish assholes.

One stupid comment?! All the time you spend here and you only saw one stupid comment?! Open your eyes man. His stupid comments have been going on constantly for more than a year.

As I said, I'm not going to further justify my actions. And neither does any mod. If you don't like, go start and pay for your own board and run it as you see fit. This board obviously doesn't suit your needs or your style. Maybe it would be best if you just left.

No, most of the time your posts have something to say. I have yet to see something from you that is offensive or derogatory. Others may have, but I have not. In my mind, you're okay. Excessive relevant posting will not cause you to be banned.

Instead of asking dan the question.....you may ask the source.
To answer: I asked Jeremy once if he could consider making me a mod since I have been here since the beginning of these forums and in the earlier forums before these. And I am also a frequent poster.....with all these reasons, mx made me a mod.....
And NO, I didn't "bother" him

You would probably fill Black Box's shoes quite well, in that case...

Anyway, my serious point - I wanted to apologise, since I feel partially responsible for the banning of Pendrigh. If anyone doesn't know, he and myself spammed the hell out of a couple of threads on Thursday night, which I assume had a part to play in his banning. Which probably means I'm close to a ban as well. Henceforth, I resolve to stop/cut way back on spam, and leave the Pit to return to my Guitar forum home.

Eventually, he does, but mostly after the person is banned. Since mx isn't on 24/7, the mods can't go to him immediately to sort out the problem. So, to solve the immediate problem, some mods decide to ban the person. If that person really wants to come back and doesn't feel they did anything wrong, mx usually talks to them about it and then makes his decision on unbanning/keeping the ban.

Why don't you take the forums less serious, and just chill and let people post. Sure, delete some posts, but the more people you ban, the less visitors MX has, and after a while, everyone is going to be banned... so why not just chill out and have a good time.

There's no reason to take the forums less seriously. Things would work out fine if people just laid off the spam. It's not that hard.

We are not ban happy. The banning of Pendrigh was the culmination of a year's worth of spamming. This was not a snap decision. We've been mulling over this for a while. We've warned him and warned him and banned him and let him back... None of that seemed to change his mind. He's gone because of a choice HE made.

As well, the only people who get banned around here are the people decide to break the rules.

We have rules here and they will be followed.

I still say you're all being uptight. Sure you should take care of the spammers. But a better system then warm - ban could work, and would make everyone happy.

Jarviss bans and edits and deletes just as much as the rest of us. :) (Sorry G, had to spill the secret ;) )

The big difference is that everyone makes assumptions as to who does what when it comes to modding. Probably the same thing happens at TC or wherever.

and even if he does... he's layed back. Just goes about his business. When he sees the need for something, he does it. He doensn't make 3 sticky threads about it. I know we'd be introuble for making 3 threads about the same subject, but thats ok, right?

I don't give two craps about him.. I don't even know who he is.

If he spammed and was banned, then ok. If he was banned unfairly, there is not much he can do about it.


We don't need to chill, because we go about our business and post. Then when mention of MORE strict modding comes up, we wonder how it can get more strict than it already is. All we do is post.. You are comming up with the MX Genecide ideas.

I'm not disagreeing with you modding. Because I know nothing is going to change and we have to follow that. So, oh well. I'm not trying to say I didn't agree to you that.

I'm pretty sure the mods are not owners. :D (just pulling your leg)

Good point. Maybe we should get that part changed to something like:

"Some people that the owner of MusicianForums/Mxtabs Forums asked to help him out have the right to remove, edit, move or close any thread for any reason."

Yeah, that should changed I think. :)

Okay, I know I'm showing up really late, but this kind of argument only brings drama to the board, a lot of unwanted drama. I know a lot of users on this board are nice people and some of them just wanna have fun. I also know a lot of people spam, but the rates have gone down a lot since the admin/mods asked for them to.

Now, the thing is, I think everyone is just disagreeing cause of the banning. People they like are getting banned and they really think that the mods and admin are having a "power trip". I was on a board once that had the exact same thing happen, only the guy wasn't concerned about the board, he was concerned about his image on a rival board, so anyone who went there got banned. That created a lot of drama and a lot of arguments until everyone regular visitor and just about everyone else was banned. They all tried to regroup, but nothing worked and the whole "Family" went bye bye. It was a great community that just went to hell.

I really don't want to see this place turn out like that cause there are some great people here and a great amount of posts that are serious and just funny in general. I would have suggested a "Spam" forum, but that would have ultimatly caused the server to crash, and the amount of post would sky rocket to high heaven.

There were rules and everyone read them and said they agreed, an argument/discussion like this shouldn't be taken to a length where the posters are against the admins/mods or anything like that.

I really like this place and a bunch of people on this board, I really hope this place doesn't got to all hell cause of one stupid disagreement like this, cause that is just insanely childish. I'm not going to choose a side, cause I think both sides are right/wrong one way or another.

To Mods/Admin: How many warnings do you get before you are banned anyways?

So out of curiousity, how many people actually care that pendrigh is gone... and how many are just using this a launch pad for all this 'mods are unfair' ****?




As of yesterday when I talked to Pendrigh, exactly TWO people had told him they were sorry to see him go... and they were both mods.

I must say that since I first got here in November, i've done some pretty positive contributing. Most of it's probably gone completely unnoticed. I've done very little (if any) spamming. Would I fit the requirements for a mod? Not that i'd get picked or anything.

Yea, I'm sure a lot of people are using it to revolt. They are doing that because they can't revolt when nothing is there to revolt against, lol..

10-19-2002, 12:38 PM
remember when trooper got banned? this place was kinda weird for awhile...then (almost) everyone got over it...

remember when krix left? the guitar forum went down the toilet for like a full month...and it was the worse it ever got...it eventually got a little better and is on the way back up.

people come and go..people post and get banned, its a forum and thats gonna happen from time to time.

if you decide to leave because someone got banned...go ahead..
if you stick around...eventually it'll get back to where it was.

i could care less if the pit disappeared...the guitar forum will always be there with some kid who just got a new guitar and needs to have some questions answered.
and im sure the drums/bass/vocals/other forums are similar

i joined this forum because of that fact..NOT because of the pit..

so i hope everyone can just sit back and realize how uptight WE'RE all being...

*whistles police whistle* nothing to see here...move along...continue about your business


-G



:my thought: the forums will continue no matter who's banned or whatever, if someone gets banned...theres always room for one more :my thought:

If it's gone unnoticed, then you probably wouldn't be asked to mod... But asking to be a mod also gets you taken off the list off possible mods.

I hope I am not alone on this, but I for one, thank the mods for cracking down on the spam, because I don't make many posts at all anymore mainly because of spam. It has recently gotten out of hand and I am greatful to see our mods doing something about it. In the year and some change I have been here the spam seems like right now it is at an all time high, even more so than when trooper was here. But luckily if things keep going like they are going now, I will be a proud daily poster again soon. :D

pimpdady is a good mod, i was unsure at first, but after a few days i was pleased he was made one. Every time a thread gets stupid he closes it stopping the cycle of spam.

Plus no remorse is a good quality to have especially where spammers are concerned.

My sentiments. I was a little curious how pimpdaddy would do, but I think he's down great. Low profile and tedious. Great qualities. I try and make my posts meaningful, but people usually laugh at me :upset:

Concerning pendrigh, I liked the guy, but some of the things he did/said were ridiculous. I'll miss some of his more comedic posts, but I won't miss scrolling past 5-10 pointless posts to get to the meat and potatoes of the conversation.

Read my previous post for the question.

What threads live and die are entirely at our discretion. Some of us have weaker stomachs than others. And we all have different things that we absolutely won't allow. If there is a person who doesn't want to see masturbation threads but doesn't mind **** then he/she is going to close the masturbation one... That's just how we do it. THere are no specific things you can't talk about... But if you are talking about anything even remotely taboo, you are taking the chance that one of us may not like it... That's something you'll have to live with... And the more mods we get, the more personal biases there are to contend wiht. If you guys could control yourselves, we wouldn't need so many mods and there would less to work against... But, you guys can't. So we are adding yet another mod in the next week, at the longest.

You are doing it to yourselves guys.

Man this is crap. All of you pussies are just rolling over and taking this shit. Kissing the mods asses and agreeing with them? "Ok lets move on whats done is done". I am ashamed of every fucking one of you.

Pendrigh shouldn't have been banned. It couldn't have been for spam because he has cut down a lot. So it must have been for his comment. THAT IS COMPLETELY UNFAIR. Yeah you can throw all these lame regulations and us but that doesn't make his banning any less unfair. There are hundreds of crude comments like his throughout these boards every month and no one else is banned. Plus, banning a regular like pendrigh over 1 fucking comment is retarded. And hypocritical seeing how many other comments like that are made every fucking day.

I'm not just fighting for pendrigh because hes my friend. I fought for zerokewl when he was banned a while back too. And the whole world knows we hate eachother. But zerokewls banning was horseshit which is why he was unbanned a few days later. Pendrigh's banning is also horseshit. Which is why I'm not letting it go easy.

And 1 more thing... if kornish becomes mod I'm going to fucking puke. And I will probably be banned one way or another within a week of Kornish's moding because he hates me.

Like I said before, this whole argument is bullshit. Bring Pendrigh back and there won't be a problem anymore. Don't bring him back, and yeah things will return to normal. Except your going to have a whiny little bitch complaing about the absence of Pendrigh every day ie ME. Ban me and... well we'll see.

All of you regular posters are pissing me off. Your just letting all the mods do whatever the fuck they want. You don't care about Pendrigh. And you don't care about being the mod's bitches either. Go ahead keep kissing their asses. Your all fucking pathetic.

I limited my defacation thread to just piss in public, "The Worst Place/Thign you ahve ever defacated on", a la the movie "big daddy", rememebr where that kid pisses on the restaurant.
Still sick though.

The sex ones, I have no problem with, but I meant just the masturbation and anal sex ones are the ones that I wonder why they are allowed. Remember the flood of masturbation threads a little while back, with 90% of the posts being "I haven't jacked off in weeks!" or "I can go at a rate of 75 mph!" or jsut spam? And the anal sex one a while ago had nothing about intelligent discussion....jsut "There's this one chick and I really wanan stick it in her butt but she keeps saying no. Any advice to try to convince her?"

Your damn fucking right Nacho. If you got banned unfairly wouldn't you like to know someone is fighting it, since you have no voice? I know Pendrigh didn't appreciate this banning.

Heres a question. Pendrigh, a loved member of this board of years gets a permanent IP ban for saying something crude. If_you_see_kay says the EXACT SAME crude comment in this very thread, and he just gets that SN banned. He's allowed to make his new "anarchist" name and continue posting. Do you even know how many times you guys have banned this spammer? Over 30. Do you have any clue whats going on? No. Do I have a headache from thinking about how hypocritical you guys are? FUCK YES.

Agrim, how many times are you going to post this same thread? We understand that you're upset that your friend was banned. We understand that we trampling all over you rights. However, we have been discussing his status here for quite some time now. This most recent incident was the final straw.

His posting has not slowed down at all. If anything it has become worse. If you go back a few pages in this very thread, there's an admission from another user than he and pendrigh had a little spam party on Thursday. That's 2 days ago. And this is called cutting down? We don't think so.

Agrim, you are just continuing to beat a dead horse. You are the only one here that hasn't learned that complaining and swearing at us will get you nowhere. Why is everyone else here "taking it?" Maybe because they know that whining and swearing up a storm will get you nowhere fast. Maybe if you were a little more civilized and could actually carry on a debate without name calling and swearing, we might actually take your comments seriously. As it stands, your comments make us want to ignore you.

The sooner you realize this, the sooner things can get back to normal.





And for those of you who can see past this whole incident, we've already talked to our new mod. The announcement will be made in the next couple of days. We think you'll agree with our choice.

I thought Pendrigh had an IP ban which was why I was so enraged. But as long as he is still able to come back if he wants, I'm happy.

I know I'm not well liked by many posters or by many mods. Especially when a disrespectful post like that is made under "administration".

I'm tired of hearing you repeat yourself.

Pedrigh is gone for the third time and he will not be returning. superdan explained to you, more than once, the circumstances of Pendrigh's banning. Feel privledged that he explained it once. Pendrigh cutting down on spam doesn't mean anything. The fact is, he was still doing it entirely too much.

THe pendrigh situation is passed. Anything you say after this point will fall on deaf ears. We have explained to you more than thoroughly our reasons and that's more than we are required to do.

jeeze, i thought the pit was the place for spam... i mean what do you expect. Its the only one of the forums here that isnt music based. Its just a place to sit back and laugh. I find a lot fo spam amusing here in the pit, but i'll agree it doesnt belong in any of the other forums. i though the pit was a place for people to get out their spamming needs so they didnt do such in other forums. I also though pendright was doing a good job of cutting back on the spam... i mean i only rarely saw his posts anymore, though i dont have to read through all of the posts like you mods are supposed to. Addmittedly that was a bit of an offcolor joke, but you guys get offeneded pretty easily if that was what set you off. You let the dead baby joke line go for quite some time, and i would think that was way more offensive. And agrim better not get banned, cause while a lot of his posts may be offensive, its not because hes trying to be. Those are simply his oppinions, and he spams about as much as i do.

And i think loozer would be a good mod

Forget what if situations. Agrim was banned because everytime a mod does something that rubs him the wrong way he climbs up on his soap box and calls us names as he tells us how stupid we are.

If you have a problem with us, tell us. But do it respectfully. You have been banned enough times that you shouldn't be here anyway. I don't suppose you should be trying to provoke me.

we're on fucking computers. This is not real life. You can not all jsut gang up on the mods and overpower them as you would be able to in real life.
Liek at schol, where the students live in fear of the few faculty. If all the students were to gang up on teh teachers and principals, they could very likely take over the entire school.
IN the forums, we are on computers. Ganging up on the mods wouldn't work, as they could all very easily ban you as often as they want.

If you have a problem with us, tell us. But do it respectfully. You have been banned enough times that you shouldn't be here anyway. I don't suppose you should be trying to provoke me. ok yes i have a big problem with the mods they are banning people like crazy and you guys dont know how stupid you look(dont tell me i look stupid i always do:lol: ) but seriously man you jsut banned agrim, hes a good friend of mine on mx hes the only one that is like me in a way.now hes banned and im pissed real pissed and if you know my history for this site be fucking prepared bitch!

Agrim is banned...if he adopts a new taste for political blowjobs and maybe brings a kneepad with him everywhere he goes so that maybe he can kneel before the mods and lay down to thier tyranny, do you think perhaps he can be reinstated?

this place has gone to hell

Banning people like crazy? Since when does banning two people = banning like crazy?

We don't look stupid at all. THere are rules, and you will follow them or will not be allowed to use musicianforums.com

Agrim wasn't banned because he was voicing an opinion. He was banned for his beligerence toward mods.

He wouldn't/won't come back anyway, so it doesn't matter.

Shockwave posted under a different name for a little while after his ban, but he hasn't posted lately...Shockwave doesn't care to come back here........I still talk to him occasionally.......I'll try and see if he wants to come back.....I *think* that his account is still open......

so what? beliegerence is a rarity among human? ive been mortally offended countless times....o shucks, i forgot, im not a MOD! im not placed higher on the hierarchial proverbial totempole of the cyber no-life terrain as the mods are. so what? you prance around, ban people, close forums, and delete posts? you;re better? beliegerence towards you is worthy of a ban but beliegerence against another isnt? what valid factor places you above anyone else? i think only Mx should be allowed any jurisdiction. he's the only intelligent one out of any of the mods. all the appointed ones not only have contributed very to nothing to the forgeing of this establishment. Mx fashioned this site. all the other mods are little pawned cronies. and banning Agrim for "beligering? you? yeah, im sure you're mortally offended, ikik. im sure you're sulking like a little german schoolgirl right about now. you banned him merely out of spite and ****ed principle...prinicple being "hey, im a mod, he said a bad word, im better, so im gonna ban him and remove one of the most intelligent and interesting members of MX"

Bahahahha! YOU really want to be a mod don't you? THat was some supreme asskissing you did there in the middle...

Anyway, this is not your concern. But since you have decided to try and make it yours, I'm going to explain something to you.

For one thing, being a mod here does raise my status on the totem pole you spoke of, but don't think for a minute that I don't deserve it.

I'm where I am for a reason and if you think mx is such a great guy, why would you question his choice of whom he entrusts his site?

My decision was based on Agrim history of disrespect toward me and the other mods. If you'll notice, you haven't been banned for your disparaging comments. THat's because this is the first occasion. I'm not a hot-tempered person. I am in fact on AIM talking to Agrim right now about the possibility of reinstating him. Do you know why? Because he understands that he shouldn't have said some of the things he said.

In the future, maybe you should keep your nose out of things which you are completely in the dark about. Honestly, how old are you?

Is the "Report post to a moderator" feature anomynous or do the mods know who have been dobbing?

It's anonymous, but people never use it. I've only gotten 5 or 6 in the year or so I've been here. Every mod gets the mail, regardless of the forum the report came from..

Now a rant from yours truly..

I think some of the members are taking this way too seriously. How many really good threads have been ruined by spam? I know this is only a message board out in cyberspace somewhere, but it can be a fairly positive experience for everyone. People who have no access to the cultures and various walks of life should use this to learn about our fellow humans and for the most part, that happens. Spam is annoying. I will admit I have laughed out loud at most of the idiocy, and sometimes it's funny, but people go too far all the time.

I guess I liken this to a room full of people and everyone's running around talking to each other. Most comments people make in threads are fairly on topic, but what would you consider spam in a real conversation? The guy who runs around making wisecracks, and either ya laugh, or you wanna sock him in the jaw right? Half the crap some of you post wouldnt usually come out of your mouth in a conversation anyway, and I guess that's what is so appealing about message boards.

If someone said the now "infamous" pendrigh comment in a conversation, you tell me what would happen. Why should the consequences be any less severe here? Cuz it's a message board? What examples would we set for other users if we didn't do something?

This site is supposed to be a fun way to learn about music and everything about it. So many times the Pit ends up a mess of garbage. I hate it more than anyone when a thread that's rocking is taken off topic by stupidity. You guys should be more interested in helping make it a more rewarding experience for yourselves so you can actually learn and benefit in a fun way, instead of spamming. We all have some instant messanger. Use that for the quips and one liners.
