    Mikfoz's son here.

    He said he's left because he couldn't cope with all of the stupidity you guys keep demonstrating. He's got more important things to do in his life at the moment than trying to stop an 'unstoppable object' from moving.


    I'm not asking him questions.
    Well who didn't know that already.

    Moderating a forum full of fags for fully 4 years (lots of f's) is horrible when everytime you ban someone, they just come back on an alt and do the exact same shit over again.

    If this forum just had IP bannings, so that a ban was actually a ban, then the job of the moderator would be a whole lot easier.

    There is no plan, and I was asking chris, not you, but nice to show that you really are Twiple, oh and you're bordering on mod sass, which is bannable.

    But go on, point out one post where I've irrefutably bullshitted people?
    How in the goddamn hell am I sassing you? I'm stating my opinion and theorizing.

    Oh, just like Twiple is, give up the act I know you really are him, and yeah, calling me a bullshitter and a troll is mod sass.

    If I were you I'd take this friendly warning and give it up.

    Garry could probably take vbulletin to bits but other than that I don't think there's any way to do it.
    I'm fairly sure you can.

    Maybe not.

    Mod sass is whatever the mods say it is.

    Again this is a key principle you need to understand about moderation.

    Oh I completely understand that, mods bend things around just so they can be right about banning you, also known as, abuse.

    This isn't even close to being directed at you Raven, so take your finger off the trigger for now.

    True, though I define it as unreasonably having a go at/about moderators, which is exactly what he's doing, though I'm not unreasonable and have warned him first.

    Actually, if we were allowed to do that, You'd be banned by now.

    Yes, we do get a little bit of leeway, but not much, and if we start banning just because we feel like it, we'll lose or moderatorship.

    No it's not abuse, because the mods also define what is and is not abuse.

    It's only abuse if the mods say it's abuse.

    That's half true, they know what real abuse is, it has a goddamn definition, no different anywhere, but, they can make up their own definition if they want and use that against people, sort of like an illusion.

    Well you can do it, collectively anyway, the moderation can do it, the moderators themselves can't.

    Now you're making unfounded assumptions, funnily enough we don't have the run of the place and have to stick to the rules.

    Jesus he's only in his 40s
    Mikfoz was that old?? Holy shit! I always thought he was in his 20's. Hmmm...maybe he banned himself because he realized that there is more in life than sitting at a computer.

    But I agree more with Rublux. He is probably very depressed about something. This whole issue basically came out of nowhere. Something must really be driving him to do something so unpredictable as this.

    Edit:

    Maybe him and Garry had a bad argument? Another possibility.

    Yes, which is why it hasn't happened to Dragon, Postal, or Rusty yet.

    Yeah, what I'm saying is that he's trying to make out like each moderator is a corrupt dictator, when really we still have rules to follow.

    No it doesn't.

    Abuse in the context of this forum is banning without a good reason, but as the moderation team are the people who collectively decide what constitutes a good reason, they can more or less do what they like.

    Individually they are bound to the group decisions, but as a group they can do almost anything, although hezzy and finally garry have the ultimate say.

    So if the moderation team agrees that it is a good reason, it is a good reason, and that's that.

    You get a matrix brain download when you get elected, and when you lose modship they flash you with one of those little things from men in black.

    Jeez, I know you have rules, I know everything about you, but mods can bend those rules if they want, and get away with it, but this is taking me away from my real point, it's that all this talk about mikfoz banning himself is a prank the admins are pulling.
