Before I start on that let's examine the setup of the Atheism+ forum shall we?
Click on that and we find . . .
Hmm....wait.... the topic is called "Are the moderators here censorious, capricious and biased?"
The forum is supposed to be devoted to Social Justice right? It's Atheism+ humanism, social justice, etc. . .
From wikipedia "Social justice" is generally used to refer to a set of institutions which will enable people to lead a fulfilling life and be active contributors to their community. The goal of social justice is generally the same as human development. The relevant institutions can include education, health care, social security, labour rights, as well as a broader system of public services, progressive taxation and regulation of markets, to ensure fair distribution of wealth, equality of opportunity, and no gross inequality of outcome.
No gross inequality of outcome and yet the first thing they do is create a Moderation complaint forum based in sarcasm? What the fuck is up with that? It's not sarcasm you say? Then what the fuck is it? Honesty? If so then they are saying "fuck you our moderators suck and you have to deal with it."
There is no nice way to take that topic label. Not a single one, unless of course they were right wing conservatives in disguise. Then I might accept that they didn't get the concept of "social justice" and so they fucked it up right there.
Okay let's remember that as I move into my encounter with these forums. You'll have to excuse some of this because the lovely assholes at our supposedly "Social Justice" site deleted almost every single thing I ever wrote while leaving in the responses.
The thread is here:
I meet this fucking asshole named Setar and what do they do? Why they strawman my arguments by crossing out what I wrote and pretending it's something else. Why? Who the fuck knows but they sure hate the banking system and capitalism despite the fact that they don't know any single fucking thing about it. Much like creationists hate evolution I think.
So the argument continues and I get rather pissed off.
Note the issue was resolved.
I later admitted that using Africa like that was a shit move even more I deleted the statement about ten seconds after writing it, but not quickly enough that Ceepolk here hadn't already banned me. This incident will come back to haunt me . . .
In any case the moderation thread goes like this:
Yet Ceepolk missed this gem from Setar::
how about the both of you go check your class privilege and look up crony capitalism, also known as the revolving door linking the top offices of the Fed and Treasury to those of major investment banks.
Gee no one was saying "all bankers" were like that ... maybe Ceepolk thought that Setar was "no-one" considering what an asshat Setar was I'd agree. Fuck that nobody.
In any case that was November of 2012. Fastforward to August of 2012 and what do we have?
One GIANT FUCKING LIE and an insult. This is giant asshattery writ large. It is lying about someone COMPLETELY and then making up your own story to insult them. This "moderation" is fucked up and I was very very upset about that.
In addition to that there was Flewellyn's treatment of Wind as related by kbonn here:
Note that in the course of said discussion Flewellyn called Wind a liar many, many, many times without any recourse. Why? Because Flewellyn was a mod, of course, and we all know that the mods arent "censorious, capricious, and biased" noo not at all. . . (Feel that dripping sarcasm)
I then accused Flewellyn of being exactly what they are a fucking LIAR.. So of course I was banned for a week by Flewellyn....of course:
