    This isn't directed at any one person, it's only in response to opinion I've seen expressed many times.

    PSB is a social structure, creating a name and a password doesn't entitle you to equal say. If I'm out with a group of my long term friends and some bloke walks up to try and start something with one of us, do you think I'd be saying to my friends "hey guys, it's okay because he's a person too and his opinion is valid"? Fuck no. And if I want to call one of my mates a princess because he's being soft, I will. If some random wants to have a go at me for calling him names I'd expect all of my group to tell him where to go, then address me privately later on if they didn't agree with my actions.

    There are other forums created by people who couldn't fit in to PSB. They're boring, safe forums, I visited and left quickly because they were too touchy-feely and contrived. I like a place where people can say "cunt" in a way that's not abusive and get away with it.

    Deleting the thread for sick jokes was a 2012 decision, not the only PC step I saw implemented. Don't let PSB become a homogenous product for all to safely enjoy.

    Seriously, can I be a mod now? I barely enjoy riding, I'm pretty old, and heaps cynical. Most of the time I can't even be bothered picking on people anymore. I'm pretty much perfect for it.

    Yeah, god forbid you have to search the internet for comparably better material. That'd be impossible.


    Well done on earmarking yourself as the guy who's highlight of a party is creepily over hugging everyone's girlfriend.

    If the forum is to be self moderating, how about mods only infracting on minor infringements if members give a post a certain number of "REPORTS". The button is there. Just let people use it.

    With the number of members here, I'm sure if enough find a post improper or thread getting out of hand, then enough will report it, if they know that say 10 reports on a 100 post thread gets a 24hr ban.....

    Obviously blatant & major infringement should get the proper treatment.

    I said I was going to stay out of this thread for various and probably obvious reasons but, once a post whore, always a post whore, right?
    Loud has nailed it in his post.
    This is my seventh year on this forum and although not there from the start, it was still a small forum and I knew pretty much everyone.
    Do I expect the leniency to tell a dickhead to fuck off when he's being a douche? Of course I do and I also expect him to get an infringement when he retaliates, because he's acting like a douche.
    The thing is, from what I have noticed is that the people who dislike me are generally the fucking idiots and as I've said in previous posts, the people who never seem to have issue with me are the people I respect a huge deal.
    If they want PSB to be back where it was, let people call a spade a fucking spade and moderate the content, intent and manner of the post, not the person. If someone is truly being a cock (my last seven day ban thread, for example), penalize the guy in the wrong, not the guy(s) telling them.
    Do I expect special treatment? Fuck yes I do.
    Why should I have to have a 24 hour holiday instead of a proper yellow sticker? I know when I cross the line, I push it and I used to get a couple of points, a laugh was had about it and everything carried on knowing where they had put their toe over the line. Now, I get my account taken away from me for a period of time straight away?
    Is anyone else drawing a parallel?
    If you want PSB to be "like it was" then do something creative with the moderation instead of just putting your boot down on everything and handing out instant fines. If you want a heavily moderated forum, keep going the way you're going.


    Oh, and keeping with the theme of this post, agrid, dude, we get it.
    You had three really shitty moderating decisions against you and I totally understand your pain but I swear I've heard you whinge about it more than three times now, everyone knows and sympathises but it's not going to change those moderating decisions. It's enough, time to shut up about it and stop acting like a Republican with a bill of fucking rights.

    Much love,

    Jim

    I agree, moderate the content, intent and manner of the post, not the person. Similarly people who reply to a post should address the the content, intent and manner of the post, not the person.

    I wonder how many people you drove away from the forum by assuming, and telling them, they were idiots. I'm pretty sure you assumed I was an idiot when I first starting posting. I just hung around because I'm stubborn and refuse to be bullied. Later I worked out you're an ok guy and removed you from my burgeoning ignore list. Many still languish there.

    Dear Desmo


    I used to think you were a mean,self rightious, tea drinking, anal bleaching, cock sucker with a chip on his shoulder!

    Till you posted somthing useful in one of my threads, then I kinda knew I was somewhat okay in your books? And i get your humor now so nothing you could say would ever offend me, some peeps just have to be on here long enough to learn or understand this, thats the catch, you blast a noob they dont come back,

    Not everyone is as tough as us mentaly? there are lots of soft cocks out there,

    Anyway long story short I piss myself at your posts and you provide some entertainment.

    And thanks for all your helpful advice

    Love

    RR

    Btw this counts as your valentines card so get fucked if your expecting anything else

    i've moderated myself since day one i came from a forum and chatroom background where fights and abuse were commonplace, CAPSLOCK @ 20 PACES, it was obvious that this forum was more about camaraderie and kinship of like minded individuals, i still take quite a few jabs but a lot of the intended victims miss them altogether and most have seen me post enough helpful stuff to take it as playful stirring, which is the general intent, you can call someone an idiot without being abusive and if they really are they won't get it.
    Do you remember the good old days before the internet?

    when arguments were only entered into by the physically or intellectually able.

    .. I too miss the early days where if you didn't think before you posted you would be harangued, sometimes mercilessly. I thought this was a good thing, it tended to improve the standard of posting, even if it was through fear of ridicule.

    I don't think I'm alone in lamenting the lack of CitizenD patrolling the forums, meeting out his own special kinda concise & erudite 'wisdom'; reading his posts was often a highlight of my visits to PSB. Now some may say I'm being elitist (after all I am very well educated & read), & also supporting a culture of bullying those less fortunate in the education & knowledge front, to be fair I suppose there may be something in that ... nah, not really, it comes down to the perspective of 'don't bring a knife to a gun fight'.

    I'm smart enough (mostly) to know when I'm out matched, in any way, shape, or form. I'm not particularly physically brave so in a direct confrontation know my limits & don't 'go there', unless my stupid gene raises it head at the wrong moment. I am however far better equipped for intellectual & verbal jousting, either in person or in writing .. this doesn't mean that I haven't had my arse handed to me on a plate by someone far more skilled, it just means that when this happens I have context to understand my place in the order of things (think Animal Farm for the older well read; for those younger less read think Star Trek & the Jem'Hadar). This allow me to take a lesson from the situation instead of getting offended, in fact I often admire (in a bizarre twist) those that can out joust me; I respect anyone that has the wit, wisdom, & knowledge to do it.

    I suppose getting butt hurt over posts on a forum may be more common in the younger members, who, lets face it, have comparatively little life experience to give them context, & even less wisdom to know when Keep schtum.

    So all in all I'm in favour of less moderation overall, a more considered assessment of perceived infractions including a please explain/justify PM to a culprit prior to any action being taken .. you know, just like we wish the cops would be like on the road.

    PSB is always a poorer place when members like Desmo are being kept quiet as they provide colour & vitality to the forum as a whole.

    An analogy for you, would you rather all bikes were homogeneous & didn't handle worth a damn & had no power, basically boring as batshit (ie make them all the same), or you had a choice of different types that had different characteristics that took some time to work out but rewarded the effort (ie accept everyone is different & that it takes effort to understand this difference).

    Nuff said.
    .. and thats Racer # 193 to y'all; my fabulous sponsors (who all do good shit) are: Graeme Fleming IT Consultants, Vision Image, Pacific Safety Wear, Excess Power Equipment, Pro Photo Booth

    .. and according to Sean'o: 'get the Kwaka (never thought i would say that!)'
