User rushmc apparently joined the BBS for the express purpose of pointing out how little value the BBS and Boing Boing have. We’ve generally found that most folks are capable of making up their own minds on the value of their own time, and have ensured that this user no longer needs to waste their efforts here going forward as a result.

Really. Who needs more aggravation?

User TrashPanda has been banned for, not for the first time, passive-agressively calling out the communty for disagreeing with him, for the community flagging their posts, and for the moderators otherwise agreeing that their posts violated the community guidelines here.

We have a topic specifically to talk about moderation. We have this topic to try and make those decisions transparent. I spend quite a bit of time explaining moderation decisions to individuals who are affected directly when they ask about them.

Our transparency and willingness to discuss these issues is NOT licence to passive-agressively bring up the issue of your moderation to other posters, in unrelated posts, just because you are upset that you cannot act inappropriately the way you want to without consequences. And then do it again after being moderated for that behaviour, too.

“Don’t be Oscar” would appear to apply here.

Honestly, you spend way more time explaining these things than anyone has a right to expect. So< I appreciate seeing all this.

user @fredtal was given a time out for sharing an opinion about my cooking in a manner unbecoming a happy mutant.

Okay, now I’m curious, because those tacos looked unimpeachable. Nothing bad should have been said about them.

What was said must never be repeated, so I am afraid that you will never know…

Can I request an admin nuke my own comment and my replies from orbit?

It has only served to derail the discussion in an insensitive way.

I split it off into its own topic. That’s usually the cleanest way to manage derails unless they are also against the Guidelines (which I will leave up to the Mods).

Thank you.

I went ahead and delete the whole side topic, as it had descended into discussing specific members instead of the subject (even the derailed subject) in question.

User Noirling has been banned for his absolutely terrible takes on sexual abuse and rape.

Every act of assault or rape is a terrible tragedy that all too often goes unanswered by society. If you make light of them here your posts, and you, have a high probability of being expelled for your efforts.

People who seem to condone it in virtual life, even jokingly, are not normal people in real life.

There are no rape jokes, only assholes.
