Perhaps mods should pow wow with regard to the latest troll which involves attributing false quotes to forum users. with regard to board continuity it throws a wrench into user content, especially so when communal memory is dependent on the search function producing reliable quotes and content from board members.
I don't think we need to pow wow. That's been part of the hadith for quite a while now. It's something like, "when you quote another user, do not change the text of the quote without making it clear that you have done so. All you need to do is report.
Sure. That would work if moderators did anything more than say “tut, tut”,
and “stop that now, you know we have rules,”
and on the 10th violation or so “that’s it! Now you are banned… FOR THREE WHOLE DAYS! When you come back, we expect to see an improvement in your behavior! Seriously!”
Come on, guys. It is absolutely clear that the intent here is to allow abusive trolling. Just because you guys manage to isolate it to a few forums doesn’t mean that this is not the reputation our forum is getting.
We are the forum that allows sexual harassment, personal crap that is despicable, and attacks on family members (which are usually deleted but not until AFTER they occur, which means — we allow attacks on family members), all in the name of allowing free speech.
It’s a really crappy position to take. I realize Shades dictates this, so, thanks, Shades. You allow harassment and abuse, because you think free speech allows for people to harass and abuse others. That’s a position to take, sure, Shades. Not an ethical, moral, decent, logical, or humane one.
