but mostly I was trying to find out if he was being an impatient whiner or if there really WAS some reason why he wasn't getting accepted. http://community.livejournal.com/thequestionclub/34097188.htmlI know that I was involved, and therefore this could seem grudge-tastic, but even if it weren't me who was banned for this, I would have posted this. Rundown: Mod of AMA, who is well known (and even states it in the comm rules!) for his asshole-ishness and lamery, wants to troll TQC. But he is thwarted by the bane of all trolls' existence, the moderated membership. After waiting an <b>unheard of</b> 24 hours to be accepted, he makes a post to AMA, asking why he's still waiting, and if someone will ask a question there for him. (This is because he KNOWS there's a lot of members that are in both communities.... which makes the stuff that happens later more funny)So, I (or, if you prefer, someone else with a very similar username and icon set as me) posts to TQC asking why he hasn't been accepted yet. (See above link) This results in a ban- which makes me think that his idea all along was to try to get some wank started and "thin the herd", so to speak.Again, this has little to do with ME being banned, just that he posted something SURE to start trouble, pretty much ASKED for it, and then banned someone for complying. It's not the first time he's been heavy handed and unreasonable- anyone else have anything to add?
I wasn't aware of that- I apologize. Though I'm not sure that there would be many mod situations where the resulting post WOULDN'T be grudge-ish.
I'll edit to make it more... ungrudgey.
I dunno, just because it happened to you doesn't make it suck any less.
That's what I thought, but I edited it anyway, just to make it seem less whiny.
Publicly bashing him will make you stay banned. Messaging/emailing him nicely might get you unbanned though.Or just send mrflagg naked pics.
yeah, I don't even care- that's not the point. He's a shitty mod, and I figured it would be a matter of time before I did something minor and got booted. I've seen him do it to other people before. I just think it's funny that it was that easy.
it's easier than that. :)thatbitchfiona was banned for saying either iawtc or lol in a post I made (that got me banned) months and months ago.we've both since been unbanned but eh, whatever.
If I had ever really commented often or posted there, I might be upset. But I use TQC 10X more than that place, because there are more people, better answers and very few sticks in asses (at least in mods)
Hah, I'd like to see him try to troll tqc.
Well, he can't, because his application was rejected (by his request... which makes it all the more stupid)
Thank god he wasn't accepted. The last thing TQC is another fucking douchebag.
he is indeed a tool.
