I’m not rising to that.

I’ve been doing that, with no luck so far.

One could almost say that I’m disappoint…oh no, not THAT list!

Not rising? Can you prove it? Possibly twice?

User Avery_Thorn given a timeout for attacking other users.

User dorgar is next on the timeout list above.

User ludd given a timeout for deciding every female politician is a “Hillary” then deciding the best way to get their point across is to complain folks flagged that post as misogynistic.

Protip: When the users of the BBS who identify as female tell you you’re being misogynistic, they might have some skin in the game there, and are probably worth listening to.

This moderately nonfemale identifier was about to mansplain some shit at him, too.

Seriously, I saw it show up in my email, and I’m like, why did you respond this way to me? I went to flag it ,and saw it had already been actioned on.

User timd has been given a timeout for suggesting that cyclists as a group would rather risk death than see meaningful change to intersections where they die, just to “be the victim”.

That one statement may well be the single greatest example of victim blaming I’ve ever seen, and is a model of the kind of rhetoric we do not need here on the BBS.

What happened?

I got a “nice reply” but not sure what it was for?

4 Likes

You replied to someone who subsequently got banned or a timeout. Your reply was popular, but it was collateral damage. The “nice reply” will disappear shortly.

Maybe the reply was part of a thread that was ganked because it was started by a troll?

“Ganked” haven’t heard that in forever.

User red_85 has been asked not to return for:

  1. Co-opting a community topic to explain to the community what the “ground rules” should be for said topic
  2. Challenging any member who disagreed with their statements by pointing out they were clearly inferior
  3. Proceeding to taunt and belittle other members to try an instigate a flame war (see: trolling)
  4. Then telling everyone how it didn’t matter anyway because he was trying to have a serious conversation but no one would rise to his challenge (see: sealioning)
  5. Expressing his disappointment in the BBS community as a whole while, paradoxically, continuing to post here.

So rarely does the moderation team see a user flame out in a way that also happens to give us a Bingo on our cards. While impressive, we take no joy in the amount of effort cleaning up after the mess creates, the otherwise well-meaning posts eaten as collateral damage, or the effect it tends to have on the topic this all takes place in.

Please, next time, just flag.
