that forum, however, doesn't claim to be a "discordian" forum. in fact, it is specifically NOT a discordian forum. for normal forums, modding when a post is totally off-topic is perfectly acceptable. For a forum that claims to be a discordian forum ,the very idea of even HAVING moderators is disgusting and should not be tolerated.

I was talking about another one, one of the ones where he had a hissy fit and picked up his rants and went home.


he should have modded that palce right out of existance.

bunch of ungrateful philistines.

Naw.  Unlike certain mods, I do not see the need to destroy or alter anything substantial.

Even Hugh's, though this whole concept is obviously alien to him.

1.  I don't wish to replace the mods...I'd like to see the concept abolished.

2.  You're one to talk about vanity, Verthaine.  But no, that's not what this is about.



Let me reprint what you initially  wrote.
Quote from: The Good Reverend Roger
For too long have we endured their arrogance!  For too long have we endured their penchant for altering posts!  FOR TOO LONG HAVE WE SUFFERED THEIR INTRUSIONS INTO OUR PRIVACY!

Rise up!  Overthrow these pixillated tyrants!  Down with Saint Trinian's Sewing Society, and all their wicked ways!

VIVA LA REVOLUTION!
\


Heres what I wrote in return

Quote from: Verthaine
Historically speaking,WITH FEW EXCEPTIONS,of course,those who call for and lead a Revolution generally become even worse tyrants then then the overthrown.
 Is this Revolution being called for the betterment of HUMANITY(of at least all the members of this forum commitee),oror is it for the  betterment of someones VANITY.
What reassurences are we getting that things won't get worse if we "overthrow the mods".
And what do I get out of it if I join in.Where's my cut?I am always a valueable asset to have in any revolution. As long as I feel the revoution is done for the right reasons.And I'm not to sure this one is(I've learned long time ago to trust my insticts)
I have nothing against the mods and I admit I am quite fond of a number of them.
If there are greviences against the mods I suggest we air them out and debate on it as a community.(Little something called "democracy)Then we all vote as to whether or not a regime change is necessary.

Or you can always make your own forum.
Much love and respect to you Brother Roger,but I need better convincing then this.

Again I ask,personal attacks aside,
Quote

If any what I wrote above is in error,please point out what and explain why,I'm man enough to accept it.
You called for the "over throw of the pixilated  tyrants".Which is your right. I and anyone else on this board has the right to ask "WHY".
I stand by everthing I wrote.

Just because I'm "vain',doesn't mean I am not correct.
Besides,it isn't vanity if you can back it up.

if you have to ask why the concept of moderators on a discordian forum is repugnant, then perhaps you should reconsider your choice of pseudo-religions.

Show me anywhere in the PD.,BOE,or any Discordian Holy book that says we have to hold any form of order as "repugnant". Show me anywhere in those books that says I have to do anything,think anything,or say anything I don't want to .
All I ask is that we debate whether or not mods is needed.I will not fall in lockstep with anyones personall vendettas.

Many of the books Verthaine talks about have the balance of order and disorder in them.  As the disorder increased on this board, The Mgt decided to add more order in the form of Moderators.  This is the way I have heard this story.  I am curious why Turd of the many names who does not believe in Eris is asking Verthaine of many dimensions to justify his faith, this makes no sense to me :?

hey, it's not often somebody bumps an old thread in which:

1) I have posted

and

2) I don't cringe now when I read what I posted back then.

Yep.  Remember when Lauren banned me for "being too chaotic"?   :lulz:

Roger and I have other forum memberships in common.  I believe I have the distinction of being the only person who annoyed him enough to be modded :twisted: He deleted a couple of posts that didn't fit in with his ideas for HIS subforum.  They were just for fun polls, which apparently he hates, who knew :? I suspect you may be right in this case :lol:

I'd actually forgotten about this monolithic piece of shit.

It's an eldora post so I probably never read it.
The Jerk On Bike rolled his eyes and tossed the waffle back over his shoulder--before it struck the ground, a stout, disconcertingly monkey-like dog sprang into the air and snatched it, and began to masticate it--literally--for the sound it made was like a homonculus squatting on the floor muttering "masticate masticate masticate".
