Appeal to Forum Community to Ban Member “Everything”

Recommended Posts

I’m going to do what everyone is wishing for right now: I’m calling upon the community to say right here and right now that we take action and let it be known to Sean that we want Everything out.


As Taomeow so sardonically observed, at least 16 out of 20 unread topics have been invaded by Everything. No conversation can be had without his interruption and disruption of the same garbage again and again, and while he may think he’s polite and cute, he is ultimately causing too much grief for everyone trying to have a simple conversation.

 

It is analogous to a group of friends having a nice conversation at a table only to be approached by an unwelcome pest who butts in and won’t shut up or go away even when he’s told to get lost.

 

This is our forum, our community. Let’s take it back.

 

If you agree with what I’m saying, sign here by posting in this thread and end it with,

 

”GET LOST, EVERYTHING!”

 

No need to discuss it. Say what you want all in one post and sign off as written above—you know he will come and start posting more nonsense and feed off of our reactions and engagement.

 

GET LOST, EVERYTHING!

 

Pandora's Box was opened, and I did it.

I agree! This forum has had far too much of this over the last few years which was approved by the former mod crew.

I don't mind his stuff.  Some I ignore, some I read part of, enough to get the gist.  He's eccentric, wastes space, but he's also consistent and has a good heart. 

 

my two pesos.

My wish would be a bit different...

Prior to a ban, I would prefer flood limits (time between posts), post count limits, and word count limits on guys like him, Void, and others who can't help but ignore repeated entreaties to pipe down and listen to what others are saying.

 

Are there mods here any more?

I have not read more than 1 sentence of his posts.

 

The guy has mental disease, its more of a sad thing, but such people flock to esoteric forums, as it is the most likely the place where their mental condition will be gratified by some other users.

 

I am more concerned about people who get into discussions or arguments with this guy, dont you see, you are talking with a clinically ill person?

Sean has been offered lots of help.  It is up to him to use it.

Mods are biased, they banned people for few posts on mopai thread or 1 post that did not lick their "Moderators high ass".

 

They dont ban a guy who SPAMMED the forum for 3300 messages, thats is friggin insane. I do have him on ignore list, but those guys are killing this place like a cancer.

 

Nobody in their sane mind with respond to "EVERYTHING" or will keep posting in his threads.

I recommend those that take offence, to please put 'Everything' on their personal Ignore List.

 

This can be done under the account settings tab.

 

Its also a good opportunity to practice restraint.

This is an interesting post. You could have kept silent and ignored this thread, but something motivated you to make suggestions.

 

Although there have been less-than-couth descriptions of the man here and elsewhere, I think the people who have voiced exasperation with Everything (and those with similar posting habits) here actually have motivations quite like the ones that brought you to join the discussion. You might not share their/our goal, but you, too, have a vision of this community that is important enough to you that you submitted your recommendations for others' consideration.

 

In my opinion, turning a blind eye is irresponsible if that which one's eyes have fallen upon appears to be in the process of turning good things to shit.

Don't you think it's wonderful that we have the same skin color as the trees? 

And I don't even know why. But it is good just the way it is. 

I coulden't even change it, if I wanted to. 

 

You have all been so good to me. And I don't even know why. I never had a choice. But thank you so much for everything. I will hold all of you in my heart forever. I wish I knew why. But it is ok.

 

I have never been able to do anything without you. So thank you. For sharing so much with me. I never knew how much all of this ment to you. I thought it was just a fun thing or something. And it's even better than I could have ever imagined.

 

Thank you all so much. For everything.

Ah, spiritual cultivation, got to love it.

You need spiritual tractors to cultivate the spirit! :lol:

And combines to spiritual harvest of course.

 

Anyway, back on topic. Banning by popular demand..... hmmm i don't like it that much. Maybe a dislike button which can collapse the post for all users after a number of dislikes would be better. This still has problems in implementation though.

I understand the frustration some members feel toward Everything and have felt it myself but I wish this was a quieter discussion.  Remember when Kar3n ruled the moderation scene?  Many have questioned the justice of her rulings; few questioned the fact of her authoritative presence.  Threads like this one didn`t happen because the matter was referred to Kar3n or some other member of the moderation team; people understood that action would be taken or it wouldn`t -- and that would be the end of it.

 

In the wake of Sean`s triumphant return, things feel a bit murky.  Is Sean acting as a one-man moderation team?  Do all the old rules still apply or have they changed?  We need a stronger sense of where we`re at.  Otherwise aggrievved Bums understandably take their grievances to the public portions of the board rather than dealing with things behind closed doors.  Having been the subject of group meetings myself (what the heck are we gonna do with Luke?) I do not wish that experience on anybody -- not even on Everything.

And yet the aforementioned moderator favored certain political continuum and beliefs over others in her comments and rulings.  The administrator of that time hid entire active threads with no explanation. Checks and balances is a real problem.  A constitution of sorts in that regard approved by a 2/3 majority and accepted by Sean may be an answer. 

BTW, the only person who was always fair was Marblehead (as a semi-official moderator)

Hi moment,

 

I didn´t mean for my comment to be taken as approval (or denigration) of Kar3n´s moderation style.  Rather, I was making the case for a stronger moderation presence.  Decisions about banning and suspensions ought to be made, in my opinion, on the basis of established policies.  The question at hand is this: has Everything (or anybody else) violated clearly written rules of conduct?

I know you did not.  I take that upon myself.  I needed it as an example as to why clear policy is needed when using stronger moderation.

In terms of the previous mod crew, there was an obvious bias toward allowing a right wing cabal rule over political, global warming and other discussions. I could list any number of problems, but upon Sean’s return he listed as to what is not allowed!
