Banning assholes

Cris, I've always admired your light moderation and the ability to let us all duke it out on the playground, even if a few of us end up with bloodied noses. But I think you should get an exemption from gratuitous mud flinging.

It takes a special kind of asshole to insult the person who runs the board and foots the bill. You're the host and there's no excuse for being the target of smarmy potshots from a guest in your house. I bend over backwards to be as fair as I can with disputes at the Duchess, but the minute anyone starts insulting me in open chat, they're booted and banned. That's one of the very few perks of running a bar.

Frankly, I was so pissed off this morning I had to walk away from the computer.

Beebs, I appreciate you being angry, but honestly, he is so fucking lame that the comment made me laugh at how juvenile it was. He's a textbook loser who tries to be big on the Internet and just ends up looking stupid. I will ban him when I get a chance, but not for saying something that brain dead and childish to me. His contributions to this site are eye bleedingly stupid, and I don't want SLU associated with such an idiot. I will be sure to share any nerd rage that follows.

Dj is amazingly ignorant, and I disagree with most of what he posts.

I fell prey to one of his threads designed to rile people up,

But....

He hasn't gone out of bounds in terms of violating rules here, as of yet. He hasn't abused any of us, unlike other posters who are allowed to call people "twats", and accepted.

We should not ban him just because we disagree with him.

That's my opinion and I'm sticking with it.

I must have missed the "General Hospital" thread.

So, I missed any insult that was made to Cris.

Can someone link me to it, please?

Running/moderating a board puts the management to a different standard. I like these rules:
Making Light: Time Notices Comments

Particularly:
l) Personal attacks against Yog and his minions are ignored. Personal attacks against anyone else are deletable on sight.

Cris' approach doesn't look too terribly different. Spot on.

ETA: Not that dickery isn't dickery.

He isn't even good at doing what he is trying to do. He needs have his computer taken away from him and to be sent to his room until he grows up a bit.

On the surface I agree — he has been a consistent dick, but he hasn't done anything that I would feel merits a ban.

IF he had not also consistently been a dick to Cris; I haven't seen the latest remark, but on a number of occasions he's posted in response to something Cris said that Cris was a dumbass and an idiot and so on. Being nasty to other posters is one thing, but I think when you start repeatedly insulting the person paying out of pocket to provide you a place to be insulting you have no grounds to remain on the site. Cris puts up with that for far longer than I would, and for far longer than I think is fair. When it gets to that point I frankly think you should get a warning, then a removal after that warning is ignored.

This.

I wouldn't blink an eye if this was a matter of a debate or disagreement or even quite "lively" differences of opinion. It's the constant smarmy sniping, taking opportunities to insult Cris outside of an argument, devoid of context.

It's an opinion that has nothing to do with my thread, tyvm. I was clear that my contention is that someone is insulting Cris, gratuitously, and not disagreeing with him in an argument or debate.

It bothers me a lot more than it bothers Cris, so he's to be commended for his good humor. But I personally would bitch-slap anyone who walked into my house and started insulting me because they're a chidish troll.

Having now seen the thread in question and the multiple sexist and demeaning attacks he levelled at Cristiano in a totally unprovoked fashion I am more happy than before that DJQuad got banned. It was well-deserved.

Yeah, I was actually surprised to hear he got banned. Sure he's a douchenozzle, but almost laughable one. I was actually wondering where he was cause he wasn't ruining the PRS threads the past couple of days. And then that thread. What in the fuck?

I couldn't agree more. I consider myself a guest in Chris's house. If I came into someone's house and consistently sh%$ where he/she lived I would expect to be banned.

Seeing this place described as Cris's home now makes me want to do all sorts of rude things to push his buttons:

* Put my feet up on the sofa.
* Smoke a cigar and drop the ash all over the rugs
* Leave coffee rings on the table.
* Grab Taeja's butt whenever she walks through the room ("all in good fun!")
* Declare loudly (while belching) that X-Box is for "little girls!"

Must... resist...

*belch*

More seriously... I noticed that DJ seems to have been an account for a while, but I can't recall him posting until recently. Is there such a thing as a troll sleeper agent?

Beebs, MOST things bother me more than they bother Cris.

I've often told him it's a good thing I'm not a forum owner. I'd probably ban everybody but myself.

Then what?
