What are the complaints about the new system? Or is it just "we don't like moderation"?
errc saysYou could better use Gorons time to zap Sniper everytime he comes back to troll the forum and harass the people that post here, rather than to selectively enforce his arbitrary rules by subjective opinions that all right wing crap flys here, while anything else must be silenced.I've zapped Sniper's comments before. I've also zapped yours. BayAreaObserver is about as leftist as anyone gets on PatNet, I've never had to zap any of his comments yet.Just keep it clean. Why can't you just say what you want to without bashing someone personally? That's all PatNet moderation is asking.

errc saysSo answer my question for once, rather than avoiding it in your usual disingenuous Goron fashionI'll be honest, for the stuff I've encountered personally, you've been a much bigger problem from a personal attack standpoint.

Goran_K saysWhat are the complaints about the new system?I posted an honest comment that did not attack any poster, and the poster formerly known as ironman posted this 5 minutes later.Sniper saysYesYNot saysI posted anon for a while to contribute without all of the past baggage attached.Yes, we noticed that along with your past baggage.To be clear, the baggage that I was referring to is having this poster hanging about to insult me as soon as I post regardless of the content. That's not civil. Sadly, it is predictable behavior. It was bad enough when we could respond in kind. Now that there is 'moderation' it's unacceptable to me, because I'm not a masochist.The funny thing is that I made a s...
Patrick saysI'm going to make a special rule completely banning Sniper from using the word "you".In fact, I'm losing it again with Sniper. Just blew away every comment he made that has "you" in it:mysql> delete from comments where comment_content like '% you %' and comment_author=128155;Query OK, 990 rows affected (3.45 sec)

He did, and I liberated it and suspended his ability to mark comments uncivil.Your comment was not uncivil.
Are you allowed to make your point?Seems to me that you are.
If this was the case they would be strongly against mass immigration of poor people from 3rd world countries. But all we see from donkeys is constant clamouring for sanctuary and amnesty for illegals.
anon_ users should not expect much tolerance for snark, since they are in effect "hiding" and attacking users who are not hiding.
Goran has been a good moderator. The rule is simple and not arbitrary. Just don't deliberately personally attack the other users. Attack their points.
This is uncivil, being a direct attack on the character of another user:errc saysyour usual disingenuous Goron fashion

No, Cowardly Anons should not have privileges and up/down voting should require a login of some kind.So many Anons are alleged former posters who can't stay away, so trying to guess who the masked villain really is isn't really uncivil.
Even though it's 100% true?
Are you not a little curious why he's never asked the same question to Sniper?
Everyone posting here, yourself included, knows that all the incivility stems from Sniper harassing everyone who isn't a far right winger. Does it not seem a little bit strange that Goron asks this question of me when all I'm doing is mimicking Sniper, yet he's never asked the same of (Sniper)by far the most egregious of offenders (you've said so yourself)
bob, knock it off with the personal attacks.
