EtcetEraThread Jupiter Police chief just announced Patriots owner Robert Kraft is being charged with solicitation (human trafficking involved)
Reason User Banned (Duration Pending): Antagonizing other members and dismissing concerns surrounding human trafficking
Get off the high horse duder. You making a post on a message board isn't going to un traffick these females. Though I guess this locks right into Asterisks fans m.o. "it's not fair that people dare to talk about my team's indiscretions!" When Ben got arrested for sexual assault I didn't wag my finger at fans of other teams for not thinking of the girl when they were shitting all over my favorite team.

EtcetEraThread Jussie Smollett Breaks His Silence After Vicious Attack: 'I'm OK'
Reason User Banned (Permanent): Continuous thread derailment with hostility towards staff. History of severe infractions.
I hope this thread has generated a good long discussion and a shitload of introspection and consideration from the moderation team regarding the standards and quality of moderation on this forum. Instead of just over-reacting and banning dissenting opinions, maybe there should have been an attempt to engage with people to try to understand why they thought the whole story was fishy (which it is now well beyond any reasonable doubt). Instead, this whole thing was turned into a massive race/culture war where those with power abused it to shut out those they didn't agree with and then got egg all over their faces when all of the doubts people had initially were shown to be legitimate and not just borne out of "white privilege" or whatever buzzword insult was being thrown around. I couldn't give three fucking shits about this guy and before this thread I didn't even know who he was. I certainly don't give a shit about whether he set this whole thing up or not and am only here because this episode is a perfect illustration of what is wrong with this place. ... ... ... Who am I kidding? Introspection? Yeah right! It's just easier to ban people and bury your heads in the sand.

EtcetEraThread Jussie Smollet has been indicted for filing a false police report.
Reason User Banned (3 Days): Ignoring staff post, derailing thread
Why don't you let users discuss issues publicly? Because to my knowledge every feedback thread this site has run has ended up with the mods closing it. Hell, I'm pretty sure there was a thread that was deleted from the server because people thought one of the mods were out of line. Gaf literally imploded because people were tired of the mods, there were so many thread closures and arbitrary bans during the last weeks. If you have a large amount of users revealing that they didn't post on a thread because they thought they would get banned, then that is signalling there is a major problem with the way this forum is being run. There is a major problem on this site when the mods post an official staff post that basically only accept what they want to hear. Royalan literally didn't accept people pointing out strange things about the story like the time, weather and area of Chicago that it took place and suggested that doing so is "victim blaming". That is a really ridiculous decision for a discussion forum. And no, the tensions in this community are not going to be solved by sweeping everything under the rug and suggesting everyone just vent to the mods via PM. This is not a HR issue in a company, this is a bloody discussion forum. Let us discuss it.

Reason User Warned: Antagonizing Another User
I'm gonna take this opportunity to call out RedMercury from the old thread. That person's attitude was extremely antagonistic towards other posters knowing full well that if anyone engages they would most likely get banned. Getting aggressive towards posters, making terrible assumptions about them, and egging them on to say anything while hiding behind the mods. it's quite frustrating to see people like that not get any warnings, while other reasonable posters get a ban hammer for engaging with them.

EtcetEraThread School condemns Trump-supporting students that harassed Native American man
Reason User Banned (Duration Pending): Returning from ban and resuming banned behaviour
Now that I'm not banned. That's not what I was saying, as a matter of fact, I never said they were lousy people for getting pregnant. I just said they were lousy people. You can be a lousy person without getting abortions also. Era just jumped on that bandwagon and went with what they do best and add controversial and irrational hyperbole to a few simple statements. Then once the mob started it was on a freight train to hell. Oddly enough absolutely no women responded to my comments (that I could tell) which was odd, maybe they actually comprehended what I was saying without jumping to conclusions? The people I was referring to were lousy people in general. For instance one of the ladies I worked with for a while and in that time she told me all of her hardcore sex stories, propositioned me, a married man with kids, on numerous occasions. She carried on with a relationship with not 1 but 3 men to which none of them had any clue and had 2 abortions because she didn't know who got her impregnated. She even got one of those guys to pay for the abortion and each of them bought her nice things and at least one of them wanted to marry her. She was straight up horrible. Eventually, it hilariously blew up in her face when the roommate that she was going to kick out her house looked at her ipad and found out she was going to kick her out for seemingly little reason other than she wanted to live alone for a while. So she took screenshots of all the conversations and racy photos and sent them to the 3 other guys that each thought they were exclusive. She then played the victim, wondering why someone would do that to her because she was so nice. Finally, yes I see abortion as a shitty thing to do. Like I said earlier, however, I think woman should have the right to do it because it is their body. But is it for me and my wife? No, we know how to live with our decisions. I look at my kids and sometimes and couldn't imagine them not existing. But to each their own. But fuck me for having a point of view.

EtcetEraThread Martina Navratilova: Transgender Athletes in Women's Sport Is Insane, Cheating
Reason User Banned (1 Week): Exclusionary rhetoric and transphobic talking points
I think we're more in agreement than disagreement. I'm super in support of trans rights and the many issues involved therein. But sporting competition is a very complicated thing, especially where these two issues intersect. Women's sports are separated for a reason, and the reason is that in a level playing field, women can't physically compete. If they could, women's sports wouldn't exist. As such, I'm generally inclined to support the amazing athletic women among us who are capable to doing remarkable things, and I appreciate the idea of protecting them against the others who can physically dominate them due to genetic advantages. Trans women pose an additional challenge due to hormone therapy and other circumstances. Those make for an exceptionally challenging environment for creating a fair - but separate - playing field for women athletes.

I can easily imagine causing a shitstorm over this, but I feel it is important to voice this opinion. If he's guilty, I hope he gets the fucking noose.

But consider this - if the only difference between the noose and being able to continue to work for a living is objectivity, then I think it is wise to wait and see what the courts have to say about it as opposed to relying solely on anecdotal evidence.

You're holding him accountable for a mind crime? Are you the thought police? He didn't actually do anything ... He recounted how messed up and wrong he was for thinking this way. But, he didn't actually do anything to anyone. So, you think we should just disparage anyone who has had a terrible thought or intent based on race or belief? That's probably most the planet, including PoC. If we can't talk honestly about about how culture and events have affected us without having our lives blown apart, it'll be impossible to change anything.

I'm not defending that policy. But it isn't racist in itself. Its xenophobic, bigoted and completely unacceptable IMO. However, it wasn't a "racist policy". It wasn't targeted at "Jews or Asians or Black people" it was simply a plan to create a "hostile environment" to try and deter illegal immigrants from any race or ethnicity from entering the country. It is completely wrong. And of course some of the interpretations and implementations were racist. But the policy itself as abhorrent as it is, is not racist. It is also not a policy that is exclusive to this country.

Another is hoping to do that thing where they can say, "I knew this was shady, check my posts," but no one gives a shit. The mods are (rightfully) getting dunked on left and right for being controlling, obtuse weirdos, and I bet entremet has his hooks in somehow.
