Same Old BS

Recommended Posts

Just to clarify. 

Yes - part of the moderation of this forum is censorship. We censor certain topics to sections of the forum e.g. politics/nudity. We censor illegal content (yes it gets posted). We censor inflammatory and racist remarks. To think we do not censor is not correct. 

You can of course disagree with me saying that I believe in "some aspect of" freedom of speech - comical but go for it. 

Yes I am at fault - my actions are mine. 

You forget that this community has been built upon the personal feelings and beliefs of many members including my own. And that is how many communities are made and torn down by the alignment and misalignment of those beliefs with others.

I am happy where I live thanks 🙂

The mistake that I consider I have made is posting on the topic after locking, what I said didn't need to be said. I don't believe it was a mistake to lock it though. I have made many worse mistakes in this community.

simple non evasive comment .....are you a politician? ....should be,you can put down XI admin on your resume....

Nope not a politician 🙂 Yes being in XI has been on my resume (curriculum vitae over here) - it has surprisingly helped me accelerate my career. 

But, check above - I posted twice. Once with a longer 'non-politician' response.

I find most if not all locked or deleted post's are because they turn into personal verbal attacks on each other. Duc ,Rugger all the senior admins make hard decisions when they decide to lock a thread down. There unpleasant to do just as they are unpleasant to read. 

  When a post goes wild and the answers and comments get crazy I am happy there are a few who are willing to monitor it. It what keeps us grounded as a group of people who can say what we think and feel. 

 Now again the world is not flat its bowl shaped. 

I agree, this is not a science guys. There is no formula to which post will remain and which one is closed. As Labob mentioned we don’t wish to see personal attacks nor do we want these contentious subjects to spill into the servers.

Most of the time these forums die out on their own and in some cases they continue. Rugger and the seniors look at them on an individual basis and make a judgment call, it’s not personal and their only concern is what’s best for the group.

Now it’s a beautiful Sunday, get you of your basements and enjoy the sun for a change lol 😆

So, what does vitamin D even do? The most important role of vitamin D is that it controls the calcium in your body along with fighting inflammation in the body. Getting enough vitamin D can help keep your bones and teeth strong. Vitamin D also helps nerves send messages to one another. Vitamin D can also help your immune system fight bacteria and viruses which is probably why you are hearing so much about it in response to COVID-19.

so enjoy the sunshine  its free

as soon as you censor .....you can't take it back,it does show that you shouldn't be an Admin let alone Senior Admin...but....that is just my opinion ,which, among members, doesn't mean shit (seeing that I am not XI)but thank you for your fake concern....and good luck with your career....honestly.

.....and my whole opinion is NOT based on the so called backlash and personal attacks but on his initial post....If "I " were an Admin(and thankfully I'm not) but would ban the people from the forums for a time appropriate to what they said or did,that stepped over the line and I mean by anything racial or deeply personal...I could give a shit about Political....I mean what else is there? ...oh yeah,Religion.....what ever,have at that one...

Are we using the same definition of 'censor'?

Quote

the suppression or prohibition of any parts of books, films, news, etc. that are considered obscene, politically unacceptable, or a threat to security.

I for one will never be part of a community that does not censor threats against people or content such as racism, child abuse, physical harm, personal safety, terrorism and many many others. Go to the dark web if you don't want censorship.

But alas, this diverges us from the original topic which is around censorship of questionable or objectionable material is it not? it is not a straightforward topic to be driven by a set of predetermined rules and is by nature subjective.

When a video game forum is chosen as an irrelevant place to hoist oneself on their own petard & demand freedom of speech, as if it were a governmental entity of some sort.  There are plenty of echo chamber websites where people jerk each other off with their political views; this isn't one of them.

Im part of the "Mandate" thread others are contributing too.  You have to overlook Pete, Ted, Sammy, Me and others posting there.  😇   We have been beating each other up "politically" and on other views for years !!  In game and here !!  Yes we piss each other off, but we all know we can count on the other if need be.  Hell I offered for Pete and family to come live with us when the Zombie apocalypse or society melts down.  Seeing how he would starve other wise !!!   So move the "mandate" to the Political side.  I sort of helped make it Political. 🤪  But life in general is "political" in some way from birth !!!  So lets all get over ourselves !!!

Again?....makes perfect sense ....now I understand....which doesn't help.

 

They let me out 4 times. While they were studying me I was studying them to find out what they needed to see to procure my release. They had no idea lol. 

Clinical psychopath and a bit of sociopath and some other goodies mixed in.  

 

Check out part of the definition of a Clinical psychopath. lol

Quote

Clinical psychopathy is defined by anti-social, amoral behavior, a lack of empathy for others, and egocentricity. This collection of behaviors is in stark contrast to the sociability that makes us human, such as the ability to cooperate and maintain reciprocal relationships with various people. A study led by Matthew M. Gervais asks the question of why this trait continues to show up in society and proposes that a better understanding of subclinical psychopathy might provide the answer.

There is some evidence that subclinical psychopathy involves the strategic exploitation of others. This effect specifically involves primary psychopathy, which is defined by callousness and interpersonal manipulation. While people with clinical primary psychopathy tend to defect in all situations, people with subclinical levels defect strategically, opting to cooperate in situations when it will maximize their gains.

What the hell does that even mean?  You have to wear Creed Aventus; I can tell you the ladies like it when I wear it.  If you can't look good, you might as well smell good.  Parfums De Marly Herod & Layton, Hermes Ambre Narguile, YSL La Nuit De L'homme are all good choices, too.
