Has everyone started using that retarded list of FBI acronyms apart from me?

Seriously, please, unless it's LOL or WTF give me a fucking clue what you're trying to say.

(nothing personal regret, just cranky, old and stuggling with you kids and the WIDFHGSGHWJA jazz)


TITCM = This is the correct motorcycle.   Old PD acronym indicating that you're riding the right thought.  :titcm: 

Also, if they come back and seem sincere to their error then it's cool in my book.

Nobody uses TITCM anymore? Damn. I guess I'm not hip anymore.
Also, while urbandictionary has an entry on TITCM, there are almost no TITCM pics on the interwebs.

I didn't see anything he posted on the forum as bannable but if he is harassing people repeatedly after being told to stop in PM's then sure.

So, referring directly to a POC as "nigriss" (sic) is okay?

Do you think its OK? Because I certainly didn't fucking say it is.

But it's not the binary choice: Is this ok OR we must ban him.

I had no idea. I now feel suitably dumb. And somewhat curious to see if that made it into the FBI list.

See my PM.

I am resigning as an admin, effective immediately.  I will not be attached to an organization that allows direct racial (or any other) slurs to be aimed at any member of said organization.  You are judged by the company you keep, and by what you allow to exist around you.

This isn't butthurt.  It's a moral decision that I spent the last 24 hours thinking about.

The guy's an asshole, and a horrible person.  I've been ignoring him since he did the "nigga" thing to me on his first day back.

This skirts the line, to be sure.  I'd be comfortable with his ban just because he obviously knows the "core" rules, and feels like he can be reprehensible and awful to other people just so long as he stays in the boudaries, which is totally not why the boundaries are there in the first place.

I want nothing to do with him, and PD would be better if he were not here.  Not entirely my call, though.

Pretty much that.

I can certainly respect Roger's logic with this though.

Most likely, he thought he was being clever/ironic/satirical.

"Edgy" even.

Ugh.

Edgy is a word that gets thrown around far too often, more often then not by people who fail to perceive humour and write it off as trying too hard to shock. I'm not saying that is the case here but I wince whenever I see it used in this fashion.

Hence the quotes.

Well, asking him to stop wasn't working.

In fact, it made things worse.

If you stand by while this shit happens, you are in fact tacitly voting for it.  I chose not to vote for it. 

Also, I did not threaten to quit if the ban wasn't upheld.  I did not wish an ultimatum to be attached to the decision.  However, that decision being made, I find myself in fundamental disagreement with the balance of the admin team, on an issue in which I will not budge.

As such, I am no longer able to function as an admin on this board.  I will NOT state that this is an analogue to TCC, but for me to sit idly by, wringing my hands over something that I find as important as I find this, WOULD make ME an analogue for Wyldkat.  In fact, the reason she was condemned was for doing PRECISELY that; placing her desire for admin status above her alleged moral code.

I don't really have to think about the integrity of the board in the same way an admin does, thankfully. But as a user, so long as this board doesn't turn into TDS, I'd personally rather enjoy seeing a fuckstick pledged to the point of removing themselves, than just merely banned. I guess I'm a sadist that way...

OTOH, reading through that thread, it seems like PL, had the traction for maybe one or two threads worth of other users finding new and creative ways of telling it to fuck off, before, it just became a thing who's presence in a thread would probably cause me to skip right over.

As for Lucifer, I'm chock full of literally don't even. That just seemed like a dumb ass, derp. Really, no clue what was intended.

We have our ways of handling unwanted people.
If PL is pissing Nigel off, then I mostly pity him.

I'm skittish about using banhammers though, it is a slippery slope.
Give me a limit beyond which it won't be used and you may convince me, other than that don't hammer me bro.

Probably the best approach would be to just go ahead and ban certain words.  :lulz:

That might be a good way to get everyone on board with a STRICT POLICY OF CONDUCT that will be adhered to and use of such words deemed improper would lead to an immediate ban from this board as well as permanent excommunication from The Discordian Society.
