    I'm not saying Cippy didn't deserve to be banned. im saying I will never know for sure and the fact that it happened while getting into it with the forum bully, I question the situation. I've gone rounds with the bully too. Many people have.
    But without knowing what was said, I tend to believe there was favoritism to the bully, and i'm not the only one.

    Im trying to help you mods out. But you guys seem set in your ways that private actions without transparency is the way to go. I'm saying it is not, and these conversations will always be the result. If not by me, by someone else because many feel the same as I do.

    And if everything was left alone, there would be likely different conversations with other posters who believe certain content should be deleted rather than left to stand.

    It's impossible to please everyone.

    Perfect response of an inner circle.. Dont like us? leave.

    Got it.

    This is a public Blazers forum. Not some clique to be maintained, so the cool kids can keep feeling cool.
    Sorry your safe space is being compromised. Maybe look at some of the cool kids attitudes towards others and develop a bit more of an impartial view?

    But at least the statements would all be there for anyone and everyone to develop thier own opinion rather than have blind faith the mods are on the up and up.


    You are right. You cant please everyone but what can be done is provide the truth for all to see.

    I'm absolutely bannable. I told you guys to long ago. My opinion wont change and many share my opinion. The mods stubborness to acknowledge this and not see how the current ways leave much to be scrutinized is actually proving my point.

    Isn't it possible that we acknowledge your point, but just disagree about the significance thereof?

    It is.. until mods get annoyed at the complaints about mods actions. Then we are back to square one.

    I call it like I see it man.

    Again, there is a lot of work that goes on in this forum that has nothing to do with moderating insults.

    I am sorry that I have ever complained in seriousness or in jest about it. I will try not to do that anymore since I didn't know it was upsetting you.

    There is not, and IMO there should not be, a black and white way to moderate this community. We do try and monitor for personal insults as black and white as possible but there are some very intelligent and creative people here who will go out of their ways to push the limits when it comes to insulting people.

    I have edited 3 posts today for personal insults. I doubt that 2 of the people are even aware their post was edited.

    I feel that moderator actions should be done to promote fun and healthy conversations and debates about the Blazers and NBA.

    We have a very clear basic rule, don't insult people.

    I very much appreciate the suggestions. I truly truly do, and if you recall I did try a 3 strikes and you're out (temporarily) system during Christmas. I will say it worked fantastically. Personal insults dropped to almost nothing and after it ended personal insults stayed way down. Now there has been a noticeable upturn recently. It's a very real and serious debate I have with myself over having more rules or just trying to enforce the rules that we do have as fairly as possible.

    I will say this, we have very very few bannings for the size and activity of this forum. That is a testament to how well this forum is run. We have a staff that focuses on promoting healthy and fun discussion and debate instead of being forum cops. Yes, they do "police" things in the forum but they do it not looking for trouble but in response to problems.

    Being annoyed with your long-winded redundant complaints equates to "stubbornness to acknowledge" that some people agree with your opinion?

    Nothing upsetting me. Just pointing out the hypocrisies.

    If you have proof that Portland2014 is indeed Tunchi please share it with me and I will remove him.

    I have checked the IP addresses and they do not share one.

    Yes, I know that there are ways around this.

    But I need concrete evidence that they are one in the same.

    It's hypocritical of me when I ask people to submit names for Adidas Emp Store instead of just using the names people submitted last time, or to not send me multiple PMs asking me when they can go, that I will let everyone know as soon as I find out? And that I can joke or complain about people making that a shit ton more work for me than just following the instructions I posted?

    If that makes me a hypocrite then fine, I'll own it, I'm a hypocrite.
