Please tell me JJ's ban is a timeout

I thought it might've been because someone posted that almost naked old guy pic and was told if they posted one more time they'd be banned, then in JJ posted it so as to clarify a point but in a joking way so as to do the same exact thing which seems to violate TOS a bit more than posting a baby hitler pic. What do I know? :rolleyes:

I have moved this thread to the pigsty. There has been quite a bit of borderline trolling comments here and rather than start giving out warnings it's better if we just put this in the right place and let people really vent and say what they want.

someone asked if anyone had a pic of kewpie and he posted the baby hitler pic in response.
I saw that and thought - "poor lad's on borrowed time".
Is he banned or on time out?
It's a shame coz he's a top bloke. Hopefully I'll see him at the Mike Joyce / Buzzcocks thing in a few weeks.

I liked how he used that stupid thumbs-up smiley in almost every post.
Even knitted Morrissey supports bringing him back.

I can't believe I have to post on the pigsty, but if JJ was banned, f*** this whole place.

I'm sorry David T., it's time to do some serious cleaning.

Bored ,would it not be easier just to give an explanation
of which tos jj broke and thus why he was banished?
I think a poster with over 10 000 posts deserves that much.

It's not really my place to say. JJ and davidt are in discussions about it. I truly have no feel for how this will eventually be resolved. I know people are frustrated. I simply don't feel that it would be appropriate for me to comment because I really wasn't part of it.

It's unfair to issue a warning to one user, but give another user sanctuary by moving his comment into the Pigsty. This is obvious, isn't it?

Furthermore, we're told the TOS applies in the Pigsty just as it does on the rest of the site, so why should any post be more tolerated there than here? (That the TOS precludes all of the listed behaviors for which the Pigsty is intended is a contradiction that somehow goes uncommented upon, which is perhaps polite, since this contradiction gives away that the people making up the rules here aren't very bright.)

You've just issued a warning to me because I told Cornelius Blaze (poor tattletale!) that he must have been called a "lickspittle" once or twice before in his life (he was celebrating Jukebox Jury's ban and dismissing Kewpie's critics--these are almost the only kinds of posts that he makes). He was furthermore taunting a member who could no longer reply.

Did you issue a warning to him, as well, for his baiting of Jukebox Jury? Of course not.

Consistency: the mods here should give it a try, at some point. You've got nothing better to do, since there aren't enough posts on this forum to even justify having multiple moderators.

Fair enough. "in discussion", makes them sound like Kissinger and Mao.

Trolling is sort of an ambiguous term. Originally trolling was when people would post things knowing people would get bent out of shape. It was generally more geared at riling up numerous people. On these boards here, we usually use the term to mean attacking someone, calling them names, insulting them, et cetera in order to piss them off and start a flame war where each side goes back and forth telling each other how much they suck and how they should each f*** off and all that kind of non-sense. It adds nothing to the conversation and creates unneeded animosity.

In order to not make people feel like they had to really censor themselves we started the pigsty which is a place on the boards where you can get away with a lot more... almost anything. The things that really aren't allowed here for the most part are posting pictures/private info about other users or posting pornography.

Since people were getting a bit lippy towards each other I moved this thread so people could fully express themselves without fear of being warned, put on timeout or banned.

It would be better if all the moderators quietly resigned.
