I wanted to bring up something for the general INTL public to discuss.

Now, I am aware that I am far from "popular" on here, and I will even admit that my occasional irritating posting has sometimes been responsible for my standing on this website.

However, I have noticed some blatant abuse of power on this website that remind of me the ol' Psychorabbit days.

Regardless of how liked I am, I have been posting within the rules and boundaries outlined in the Terms of Service. Over the years, I have been quickly banned for any slight infraction of them...

Over the past week, this is what has happened:

- An administrator changed my profile picture to a Not Work Safe image. Some members interpreted the photograph of an anus expelling feces as my own doing. After complaining, it was changed to a cartoon version with no repercussion for the offending administrator.

- My posts have been edited outside of RS without any "edit" mention. One example is found here:
http://forums.interestingnonetheless.net/display.php?tid=27849
I had posted a response discussing Elisha Cuthbert and it was edited to say "I am a fag". I fail to see how this has any place within the Arena.

- I have dealt with harassive comments from members in threads that are valid discussions.
For example:
http://forums.interestingnonetheless.net/display.php?tid=27864
Wheezy decides to post this well thought out reply:
Quote:
I didn't read the article because I don't read links from faggots.


In this thread I am told to shut up, called a "piece of shit", "fucking idiot", etc:
http://forums.interestingnonetheless.net/display.php?tid=27849

++++++

So basically, I was interested in what the rest of the INTL community thought. I remember back when Sandamnit ran the site, there were similar issues.

I specifically remember the instance where Psychorabbit lost his adminship. Sandamnit expressed that he disliked me, he said I was an idiot, and then he removed Psychorabbit for abusing his power.

Sandamnit explained that regardless of who is posting, everyone is subjected to the Terms of Service.

IF0 has not been living up to this standard, and it's the clique-filled nature of this website that will eventually be it's downfall. I play by the rules, and thus those enforcing the rules should as well.

Thoughts?

Definitely. And I have gotten banned for them. Sometimes for 2-3 months or longer.

I am not claiming I haven't broken rules before. What I am saying is that administrators are not following the rules they are punishing me (and others) for breaking.

I'm saying that Sandamnit had the balls to run the site fairly and without preferential treatment. I also feel there is a correlation in how the site is being run and the declining traffic....

My point is that when you constantly make banme-threads like an ass, saying how the site sucks and you wanna get banned, it's pretty fucking logical that you also get banned more easily for other things and treated worse by the staff.

While I can appreciate that, I also should point out I haven't had any infractions in awhile.

But it's not about me. I expect to get the full force of the "law" when I fuck up. I also expect others to be reprimanded for breaking rules intentionally.

However, I fail to see how ensuring that a NWS image appears on every thread I post in isn't a serious offense. Many people view this at work, and if someone got fired over the "joke", I wonder if it's as serious as my annoying BANME threads.

I also wonder why/how Ice is getting away with continually spamming this thread.

I'm afraid that's not declining traffic Adam. In fact, May's average posts/day is the highest since August 2005.

Adam, that was Rich and I. The NWS image, yeah. Your current avatar, yeah. If you haven't realized, it was quickly changed to a safe for work image, but it still doesn't hold water when you can't punish the site and server's owners.

ok, i've got a good one, what if you were eating chinese food and it was meat, but you didn't know, and already ate like half of it, and then someone told you that it was meat, would you stop or keep eating, cuz you already ordered it and paid for it and therefore caused one more animal to be killed somewhere down the line eventually, so it would just be wasted if you threw it away

Eight days do not really = valid stats. Regardless, my point about the traffic was only a minor detail.

I would expect the site and server owner to abide by their own rules. It's called "setting a good example".

In this thread:
http://forums.interestingnonetheless.net/display.php?tid=27854
We see that Ztolk and Sandamnit get annoyed at my avatar. If people expect me to change my "terrible posting", it would give me a good headstart if people didn't change my avatar and posts to offensive content.

Feel free to perma-ban me. In the meantime, I'm not banned and my status is irrelevant to ice spamming in a forum where it's not allowed.
Additionally, murdering a criminal is still a crime so regardless of my past, Ice is still breaking rules.
