Title: Locking threads
Post by: DLPB on 2019-05-16 18:13:30
Locking threads because one fool turns up and abuses me isn't really cool.  It just plays into the hands of the troll, so I request it be reopened.

Second, Ric instigated it and was 100% worse, yet is not moderated.  That needs addressing.

+1 Agree.  I typically don't question moderators, but DLPB was not the instigator, nor does he deserve the more severe punishment.

I instigated it, yet on the post I quoted, you were going off on someone for "lack of IQ".
Besides all I did was call you basic, ask what your achievements were and ask you if you really believed your IQ was above average. To which you again replied with "low IQ insults" and "shite brain". (lmao).

I do agree that locking threads isn't cool though. It's not like there was excessive profanity, actual threats or anything too crazy but oh well.

I'd also agree with equal punishment.

🤷‍♂️

That "someone" would be the general drivel-watching populace.  The use of deus ex machina, plot armor, and other gimmicks to get the heroes out of trouble, protect someone who by all rights should be pushing up daisies, and other general show-writing laziness that we have to put up with these days.

Uhh... heard of Reunion?  That's his.

The point isn't at whom it was aimed. It's what it was aimed at someone, period. If you dish it out, you gotta be able to take it.

Well I asked about his achievements as far as Tv/Script writing goes. Not about everything he's ever done. I'm obviously aware of his work with Reunion and do admire it. One thing has nothing to do with the other.

This isn't the first time that Ric has sent a post like that to me personally.  I think he gets too annoyed that I state bluntly that I think too many people are thick.  But they are.

It isn't an opinion that season 7 and 8 of GoT are badly and lazily written.  They are.  The evidence for it is overwhelming and that's why hundreds of thousands of people signed a petition to have season 8 reshot.

Ric, unfortunately, also used the classic "What have you done"  as if that is a relevant argument against bad writing.

"Nobody cares"
"What have you written"
"Could you do any better"
"It's just a TV show"
"It's just fiction"

Are the worst and most common responses made by people when writing is criticized.  Do I really need to point out why those responses are crap?

I'm going to unlock the GoT thread because I want to continue talking about it, and I don't find it justified to lock everyone from conversation over a couple's feud (Sorry Covarr <3).

With that said, I need to ask you two to restrain from personal attacks. Don't make me regret this.

You both are now on Watched status.

My reasoning was mostly based on moderation history; more specifically, only one of the involved users has been warned repeatedly for this type of personal attack over the years. That said, I was in a pretty bad mood yesterday, so deferring to EQ2Alyza's judgment is probably wisest.

A little walk down memory lane where Ric is concerned.  A few more posts besides that one.

Well if you consider those "personal attacks"... alright lol. Also hilarious how you bring up a post of me calling you out for bringing up the subject of executing someone, in this forum. Thumbs up for highlighting your toxic history.

My account is actually over 10 years old so I'm not sure if sarcasm or what.

None of it was a big deal to start with. Again, it's not like there were any threats, excessive profanity or even "abuse". But oh well.

Well we could defer to my judgement which is to ban everyone involved. But i have been told i am a little too harsh in my judgements lately.

Ah, the good old days of just banning everyone and locking threads left and right.  So much nostalgia
