Should Kewpie be stripped of her moderator privileges?

  1. Yes.

    49.5%
  2. No.

    37.4%
  3. Wtf? Give a fuckin' life NRITH.

    13.2%
  1. I think it's high time that we attempted to have a reasoned discussion as to whether Kewpie should be stripped of her moderator privileges. Yes, we've had discussions about this before, but they've been derailed by childish, ad hominem attacks. This time, I want to simply lay out the case, as I see it. Note that I'm not citing specific examples, as I'm lazy and most of them should be fairly obvious to anybody who's been here longer than 3 or 4 months.

    Let me stress at the outset that I am not arguing that she should be banned. In fact, I think that she'll continue to make a positive contribution to this forum, but as an ordinary user, not a moderator.

    I believe that Kewpie has overstepped her moderator's rights in the following ways:

    • She merges, moves, and splits threads far in excess of what can be considered reasonable. Even other moderators have complained about what appear to be unjustified thread merges. So what if we have 5 threads about the same thing? The dynamic nature of a site like this will inevitably cause some of those threads to gather critical mass, and the others to languish.
    • She denigrates users who ask what she thinks are "stupid" or "unworthy" questions.
    • She resorts to name-calling for no reason whatsoever.
    • She routinely doesn't bother responding to private messages from users she doesn't like, which often forces them to bring up their grievances publicly.

    Don't mind me, just wanted to have a wee accomplishment there.
     
  5. Hey, when did you change your custom user title to the very name Kewpie gave me ages ago?

    no she called ME that!

    then she called me a "bitter nugget eater" in that other thread.


    so now everyone who loves nuggets is changing their user title to show solidarity. Pregs suggested it. :)

    As much as I dislike Kewpie's style and all, I think she does a great job.

    Who among us would have that kind of dedication to their moderatorship? I say, no go.

    We kinda posted at the same time...didn't see you there ;) If I had seen my lovely Cassius show up, I would have made you lucky #7 :)

    P.S. So, why is six afraid of seven? Because seven ate nine. :p

    Ahhh, I love that joke. :D
     
  17. I'd be happy with a little less dedication, if that's what you call it.

    I don't know. I disagree with a lot of what Kewpie's done, but she's always been very nice to me.
     
  19. It's not about whether she's nice to any of us personally; it's a question of whether she takes her job way too seriously, and by doing so, takes something away from the vibrancy of this forum.

    Makes for good forum drama though.
