Azari, don't pay any attention to Typhoon. Being a member of the has-been societies, he has some trouble dealing with ancient but reborn societies, like China and Iran. Maybe he will live long enough to see the reactivated ancient societies overcoming the decrepit toothless former empires, like the one he lives in and the one he so much admires...

ATTENTION: This is my third attempt at publishing this post, which our diligent mod keeps deleting. Does any of you see any reason for this persistent censorship? Is the "decrepit toothless former empires" bit?...

This phrase, on a thread in which I referred to a Portuguese scientist, was meant to give a false and offensive image of my country.

This was meant to give a false and offensive image of Azari's country.

Although I will post this also in the complaints thread, I felt it also belonged here as it refers to Typhoon actions, which are demeaning to other forum members. As he keeps deleting my posts under all sorts of unreasonable excuses, I thought it worthwhile to point out how close Typhoon often comes to being insulting to some of us.

So you claim. Demonstrate otherwise.

And, so what? Anyone's country is fair game.

Review your countless diatribes against the USA, Britain, Germany, the Northern Europe, and Japan.

Contrary to what you apparently believe, your country is not special and above criticism.

The SFRs are quite clear. Any country is fair game, while calling another poster names, because it happens to be your country, is not.

Once again, you do not have special dispensation with regards to the SFRs to act as a petulant little whiner on the forum threads every time someone disagrees with you.

Further whining on your part in the forum threads will be summarily deleted as it is too much work to move it to Hell and certainly not worth the bother.

Motion

Postby Endovelico » Tue Jan 13, 2015 11:32 pm

In view of the latest Typhoon's post on this thread, I believe it has become quite clear that Typhoon is not up to the task of moderating, as he singles out members with whom he doesn't agree for discriminatory treatment, and feels free to be abusive and biased well beyond the limits of what might be tolerable. While the rest of us can healthily disagree with each other's views, we always stay within the bounds of civility and never attempt limiting other people's right to an opinion. Typhoon is authoritarian and sometimes comes close to being offensive.

I therefore move that Typhoon be relieved of his moderating tasks, leaving that task only to YMix, who has long proven to be well up to that task. A task he rarely feels it needs being fulfilled, because we hardly ever step outside the limits of the acceptable. Otherwise the free environment we like to have for discussing will be threatened to the point that may make this forum impossible to keep

:lol:

This is what concerns me about other people looking out for my feelings or the feelings of anyone other than themselves. Really? :lol:

Could anything on Earth possibly be worse than when someone comes close to being insulted? When I was young, I used to obsess with how often I came close to getting laid by some hot chick...... then I realized it was all in my head.

First world problems..... I'm going to McDonalds, buy some coffee, spill it on myself, and see if I can find a lawyer willing to sue the pants off of Ronald.

I have always felt that this forum didn't need active moderating, because we generally behave pretty well towards each other. Typhoon is the only person here who feels he has a right to tell us what we should or should not say. Totally unnecessarily. He mistakes his opinions for the acceptable norm for opinions on this forum. The garbage he believes in becomes acceptable, other people's garbage are dumped into Hell. Now, I have long decided that the only possible reaction to other people's garbage is ignoring it. The very "moral" Typhoon, maybe culturally influenced, feels he has a duty to "clean" that garbage, so that it doesn't affect "his" house. This inquisitional standpoint is not only very annoying, it is also not legitimate and hinders free speech as we understand it. We southerners are not very keen on rules, which is sometimes harmful but makes life a lot less stressful. Typhoon feels he is an intellectual samurai, with a code that must be respected by all... by force if necessary. Not my cup of tea at all!...

Endo, I take this forum to be a party organized and falcilitated by Col-Sun and YMix. As hosts and owners they are totally free to moderate the way they see fit. As a guest I can stay or leave when I don't like the party anymore for whatevah reason. What else is there? Different opinions about the quality of their moderation I guess.. but that won't change much. They are grown up knuckleheads as we all are here who are not convinced by anything others say here anyways. ;)

If you want to know my opinion about one or more terrible acts of moderation by the Colonel.. I need to see the text that he moved to Hell, deleted or other....

I would have some difficulty in retrieving the posts of mine which have been adulterated - censored! - by Typhoon or completely eliminated. But there have been several and I can assure you that they contained nothing offensive to anyone. You all know me long enough to know that I do not insult or offend others, even when I am a target of questionable comments. Typhoon may own this forum but that does not give him the right to be arbitrary and authoritarian towards intelligent and civilized people, as we all are. If he feels that force is an acceptable replacement for reason, then he doesn't know how to live among intelligent and civilized people. If I can't get him to give up his moderating (?) tasks, I will try to keep intercourse with the rest of you, whom I very much appreciate, and ignore him, until such a moment when his interference makes my staying here impossible. Some people can't help destroying what they can't control absolutely.

I have hardly any complaints.. what can I say. Typhoon can do things you feel are arbitrary or worse.. but that he feels are justified. These differences of perception and position... what can you do?

I'd say, let it be and keep posting! Nothing what we say here changes much anyways and nothing will be preserved for eternity. The good news: we can't forget what what we can't remember... so nothing is lost. ;)

Great advice for most internet posters. If we were doing important stuff in the real world we wouldn't be posting much. Would we?

Of course.

While it is bit tiresome to have this forum a dumping ground for conspiracy theories about the Joos, Perfidious Albion, Malicious Merkin, Naughty Nippon, a flood of Russian agitprop, and the imminent, yet always future, glory of Greater Bananastanwhateverstan, there are lots of people who have one or more such beliefs, so one should have at least one representative poster. :wink:
