"All mods and admins are biased, inconsistent and corrupt." Shouldn't these things be banned?

Things like "all women are idiot" are banned because it is profane and it hurts a specific group of humans. This statement will upset each and every woman.
So, when a user tries to offend admin staff or (especially) moderators, it hurts the current moderators, it hurts me.
I'm honest with my life and my work. I'm doing this for volunteering (and same goes for other mods too). I just can't (and don't want to) listen all this nonsense.

If they want to know why their post was removed, why don't they contact admins?

Shouldn't such comments be banned?
Or whether they are already banned?

  • I do think they should be banned, they're technically member posts and hating against GAG. I don't like being put into the bracket of being biased and corrupt when I'm not like that at all. A lot of people are ignorant and don't realise that a tiny number of mods are like this but they eventually get their mod status removed. If they don't like us or GAG they should leave and these types of posts should be against the rules and removable.

    • @dogbert444 Mods can remove comments immediately themselves, that's why but it doesn't get removed permanently unless an admin says so. If you report a comment, you have to wait for an admin to remove it or hope a mod sees it and hides it. If you send me a link to the post, I'll remove it for you.

    • Thanks. It was removed this morning, UK time. :-)

  • I go with the little lioness @justbanANNAz here :)

    Why get emotional and take it to heart? No matter what good intentions are & you do, expect a section of people to criticize and even accuse you the other way round. End of the day not everything is about intent but also more about perception from the other side.

    Moreover, there are those who not only are fixated but also frustrated and they get to vent themselves out here since no matter what everyone's ideally anon :)

    History is testimony to various great people who have done good to mankind but have been not only persecuted but also been put to death cause their opinions / actions were against what the majority wanted in that particular place :)

    Learn to ignore, I go with everyone who said that :) I debate those who have opposing views but I DEBATE, the moment it reaches a point where it's becoming an argument I stop :)

    • Let me repeat what I said to Meson
      Of course but isn't it antagonism? And how I'm supposed to debate with a person whose post I didn't remove. I don't know their story and I can't believe a heartbroken person. All I know is that he/she is publicly offending a group. And it's the nature of the site to promote only lively and progressive debates.
      Of course, I won't take it to my heart but but the content these people are generating is distasteful and profane. It "should" be removed, not because it's against me, but because it catalyses hate/offence/antagonism.

  • Users are allowed to criticize the admins/mods here as a whole. Some users simply don't like the rules and don't like that their posts get removed. However, unless they are criticizing a specific mod (which would be considered member post), their comment won't be removed.

    Being a moderator is something like a position of "authority" since mods can hide posts so of course anytime someone is in that position, they should expect that some other people will not like it.

    So, like I said, if someone mentions specific mods in a negative way then it would be a member post and can be hidden. However, if they're just talking in general about the moderation here, the comments will not be removed.

  • Technically I'm more of a fan of answering their qualms and just respectfully disagreeing. By silencing, you imply that they're right, and you're hiding something. Or at least that's how I feel about it, and that's why I don't hide it as "nonsense" or "offensive". Although of course, the "why did my post get removed" questions get removed and redirected to the Help form as usual. I know I'm not corrupt, though.

  • Freedom of speech, with responsibility.

    Let them comment like that all they want, and force them to face responsibility for their actions. I can go up to the president of the united states, and call him a "wh**e taliban sympatizer who f***s sheep", but i also know i will face responsibility for it.

    • A president is chosen "by" the people but not mods.

    • still doesn't change what i can say about them, and that i have to take responsibility for what i say

  • I don't think that the "all women/men are idiots" should be banned either, it's freedom of speech, it's what they believe. Should you get arrested for saying that the president is an idiot? No, it's what you believe and they're just words, you gotta get over it. You knew (or should have known) that when you become a mod/admin, aka, someone with more power that the rest, you were gonna get hate.

      YFE: It's subversive suggestion within the framework, apparent to anyone with decent language skills.
      That would be removed on the grounds of it being a member post, your challenge is as silly as your critical thinking skills... if you do, in fact, agree that it's all about perception... then what are you here bitching about?
      I'm DONE!

      Peace out brethren.

    • @master_poop ehh I have no idea whats going on its all good lol

  • Frankly, it doesn't bother me whatsoever when people say that. No hater that i have on here has any effect whatsoever on me. My real life is going too well atm... which has the consequence of making anything that happens on here super insignificant for me. I don't think people voicing their frustrations with moderation or the opposite gender for that matter should be banned, unless they are taking it to the extreme, which comes in one form or another. My preference is just to re-educate these people on what is real life, and what isn't.

  • When you sign up to be a mod you know what you are going to get so from the freedom of speech point a view, you have to let it go - If it gets personal I will report it but other than that you have to be seen to be fair.

    • But why would we let this antagonism be ignored? Just because it's against the mods who are temporarily selected, is it fair to offend them?

    • Once it is not personal I think you have to allow it.

    • Isn't it antagonism?

    • Show All
    • For instance, assume I am saying "fuck you" words with another user in your question.
      If that annoys you, you can tell them "get the fuck out of my question and argue in your messages" and block both of us.
      If that annoys other users who are viewing your question, they can just ignore those craps and make their own comments.

    • It is true that people want peaceful discussions, so do I, but many people do not mind if they see some others are saying bad words.
      It is also unnecessary to concern the image of this site. Most people will still voluntarily be peaceful, and even if someone says bad words for once or twice, they still like to be peaceful.
      Also, there are also quarrels on Facebook, Twitter, etc. I am peaceful, but sometimes I simply insult someone without debating, for instance, if he is a commie.

    • If you just think about it they are just words. I mean if they were coming from someone I knew or cared about that is one thing but if it's not your friends on here then I wouldn't worry about it. Most the time the people that lash out at others are the ones that are not happy with themselves and need to try to make others feel bad about themselves so they feel better about themselves.

      And no. That was not antagonistic AT ALL. "it's all about perception."

      And you say corrupt is not an insult huh? I challenge you to post a question "is YourFutureEx a corrupt mod?" And let's see if it survives or not. And no, honestly I won't hide it.

    • Says a person who can't even write in proper box?

      That was just a discussion (more lile debate)
      Yeah I went a bit aggressive but you have your own share of bad words which I ignored.

      I'm sorry if you felt bad. I don't want to hold grudge and I honestly don't like to piss people off.

      That thread was just intended to minimise the antagonism. And I expected jest like you did in your initial opinion. You seemed to be a good debater that's why I pulled that convo.

      At the end of the day, if you want to block me and end this in the least productive manner, that's your choice.
      Have a nice day ahead and best of luck for your future :)
