Evan von Christoph
13-07-2007, 14:54:33
I always thought that it was quite useful to place the act of thinking as being the core of life. That is really the essence of "I think therefore I am". That ranks a lot differently from the Ming's "I am therefore I ban".

Vincent

Well, I talk more about Holland than people in Holland do. I also talk more about rain than the rain.

Poly is a funny place. It's fun to have a good laugh about it. Just when the Poly discussion stops here, zoooooom - morons appear magically and spray Poly-IQ-sperm allover us and we're saved again! It's web 2.0

Hooray, it's a miracle!

It's good that, from time to time, wise people come down the high, snow-covered mountains, where the air is fresh and clean and where you can see the stars in all beauty, and they come and look at us and they judge us. They compare us ants to the stars and so we learn to know who we really are, in our puny, smelly, mud covers dwellings.

Without that shining guidance we'd be lost, and we're grateful and humble ...

Well, maybe it is because we are in awe of such sparkling wit.

Seriously, though (because that comment was clearly ironic but I thought it better to spell it out for you), you guys come over here because you have varying degrees of problem/non-problem with the management there which was presumably part of your signup agreement and seem to find us wanting. Still, thanks to you all for sharing.

Strangely enough, some of us do not find your Apolyton wankfests (i.e., I can piss higher up the IQ wall than you) neither entertaining, enlightening or life enhancing. Maybe because we have lives. Personally, I do not see much entertainment in helping you guys do your course assignments as a parody of social interaction - so I'll pass thanks.

Still, superior being, please maintain your aura of superiority so we can have a good old laugh at you. Keep the entertainment rolling please.

Funniest comment in this thread. Nice work!

I particularly like the juxtaposition of posters who make posts consisting of "1"
"2"
"3"
and
"POLY POLY POLY"

to make comments such as "maybe because we have lives". Yes, your intellectual discussions here are clearly indicative of the fact that you all have fascinating "lives".

Perhaps the real reason is you guys are cliquey as you can get, and even though you pretend to be open to new posters, you only want new posters provided they bend over and play your kindergarten-level spam games. Post in your threads, we'll post in ours.

Those of us that give a shit are fully aware that this is a very mature* online community now. A very large proportion of the regular posters have met IRL and we know it is going to be quite difficult for new posters to follow what's going on because of all the in jokes.

I feel like such a racist xenophobe now :( This could be such a nice poly thread, about social tensions between resident posters and newcomers. Are the newcomers allowed the same rights as the old posters? Can they build their own mosques in the newly entered forum? Can they demand some silence and a carpet while they pray to their own gods? Should new posters adapt, or have the right to bring over their own culture and language without much regard to the existing way of life?



My only condition for welcoming new posters is that new posters make me laugh, in a positive way. People who only come here to bitch about their own personal little problems, or shit they have on another forum, or even worse, come here with some macho trolling 'I'm so much bigger and better' attitude, don't have my sympathy. This forum has a certain flow, and if you go with it that's a great plus. And that doesn't have to mean indulging in funny quickposting with zenmasters like Vincent and RC. Just trying to fit in, and make some attempt at saying something lighthearted or funny will do for me.

Vincent
16-07-2007, 11:36:21
I don't have anything against new posters. I just dislike the "King Tubbie posts here now" types who aren't intersted in posting here except for the Poly banning crap.

The thing is, that only applies to the counterpoint forum. i can barely stand the inanity of counterpoint myself, but its worth wading through for the odd gem.

however, anyone turning up to post in the games, music, film, counterattack etc forums is going to get a rational (internet-level) discussion. i do probably 90% of my posting in those forums these days.

So for asher to present the existing poster base of the whole of CG as some homogenised spam cult is way off the mark.

Check the postcounts. This is the forum that defines CG, the rest of the forums are tiny little side-forums.

For instance, how long has Forza 2 been out and how come no one is seriously discussing it? There's no review, there's no tuning guide, there's no anecdotal evidence of which car is best. Weak. :gasmaske:

The fact of the matter is -- and I don't care how much you guys want to deny it -- you lot are RL friends, for the most part, and you have your own stupid games you play with eachother. If you're not going to welcome other people to the forum, you might as well close registrations except for your many inane DLs where you can make poo jokes, dii dooo diii, 1 2 3 4, POLY POLY POLY, gasmaske, jesjes types jokes.

FFZ was not a response to Counterglow, Counterglow was a response to FFZ! Back when FFZ used to be an unmoderated free-for-all and Kitty came around and proved some sick point by posting hundreds of identical threads and registering a hundred identical posters.

Counterglow's explicit aim was to create an environment without nastiness, childish insults, moronic macho "babe threads", cruel spamming and other crap. If that took losing some of the more inflammatory posters (Darkstar, to name one) then so be it.

I always thought FFZ was a result of you getting fired as a mod over at CFC though I fully admit I don't care enough about you to follow up on the details. I figured it was one of those "fine, if you don't like me then I'll take my marbles and go play in my own yard" sort of thing. In any event I always got a kick out of this even though I never played the card game.

There have basically been two FFZ's with a dead period in between. CG was created out of the first one, then a few years later the second one (with the new, improved, republican message) came around.

Basically the same people who were content to post nicely and not have hard moderation in the first round became incredibly stauch pro-moderation fascists in the second. Great psychological stuff.

That's not the way I remember is. Back in 2001 some posters were really annoyed about all the Poly/ACOL/whatever banning crap and the site owner battles. The idea of CG was als little moderation as possible with no visible site owner.

Part of that idea was to create a place, where you don't have to discuss endlessly the cruel actions of moderator . Be here and never mind ban-enmies-of best-buddy-moderation. And I think there was no big agenda above that.

There were babe threads here too, IIRC it started here. The 9/11 bombings drove some of the US posters to FFZ.

Wait until other people arrive, but I think more people than me will remember the first, pre-9/11 FFZ and the Kitty Poster List incident. CG was created as the "invisible moderator occasionally cleaning up completely disruptive stuff" forum, which is a bit ironic since that's what got people to leave OWO in the first place all those years ago.

Was that the feud with Michael-longposts? I missed that one and never really understood what the fuzz was about....

Funko
17-07-2007, 08:27:41
Chris and Vincent and Scabby are all correct. CG and FFZ had nothing to do with each other, aside from a small group of shared posters. I initially went to FFZ from ACOL (as Scabby suggests) but it was in an interim period before CG started which was a few months. I very rarely went there after that.

Nav had been thinking about setting up his own gaming site for a while and after all the fuss at ACOL some posters met up in London because Aredhran was over and we discussed making a new site and we did.

The idea was not an "invisible moderator occasionally cleaning up disruptive stuff". There was an invisible owner/administrator so people could not focus their attacks on a known person, as had happened at ACOL, there remained no moderator although a whole bunch of people had access to a shared Duty Manager moderation login that was intended to be used to delete porn etc. I don't think was ever used. There still is no single owner as such, all the major site and funding issues have been discussed between a reasonably large group at various drinking sessions in London.

The only last point is that I'd never deny that this forum was mainly made up of people I consider to be RL friends as well as 'internet buddies'. Some of them are my RL friends that I've introduced to this place and some are people I have met at ACOL or CG but the fact I've made friends who I can go and see all over the world, including giving me places to stay in New Zealand, London, New York, Rotterdam, Cardiff etc. and offers for many more places is awesome. I'd definitely like to meet most of the ones I haven't met yet for a beer sometime also.

As for new posters, it does happen. Some of the new EVE posters who I don't really know came to the last London meet, and that was cool. They were a nice bunch. :beer:

Oh, there was some moderation done by the Duty Manager.

As far as I remember the only real poster ever banned was Jon Miller, because he wanted to know how it feels to be a porn spambot.

Funko
17-07-2007, 08:35:19
Ok, but I never used the Duty Manager login. I even forgot the password.

There are millions of things you don't know about, thios is just another one of them.

I didn't get fired from CFC is another, I told TF to stick it up his ass, behind the scenes he would tell us to enforce rules and than he would over rule us publically to make himself look like a hero.

I don't need to check the postcounts, any idiot can work out that a forum containing a series of threads in which a few people post one word replies and gibberish is quickly going to fill up versus a forum where there is something resembling rational discussion. the fact is that a disproportionately small number of posters are responsible for the spam and in-joking, while, there are many posters contributing elsewhere.

your forza point is a joke. why not compare with the WoW thread which has several hundred posts and many active posters contributing to it without any of the brainless spam or in-jokes you find so abhorrent?

If it matters he was likely just drunk. In real life he's a nice guy.

I know all about Spaniel and the speakeasy, FFZ was never a 'ghost town' and it still isn't.

I just report what I saw man. Just you and Venom doing the occassional banter amid moldering weeks old threads. Maybe things have changed but that's the way it was last time I checked. Haven't bothered to look at it in at least a year and a half probably closer to two years.

I think that's what he's doing now. I haven't seen him post any where since he told the mods at poly to stick it up their ass.

Err. WoW is the definition of brainless with in-jokes.

Have you played the game?

Scabby's just a bitch. Everyone's a nice guy.

Myself, I resent when slutty women with the name 'Norks' prances around here for all of the attention from the guys. I hated that shit in high school and I hate it now.

That's not mysogynistic -- she was a slut. Check out her name.

I thought asher's attack on norks was so over the top it was more a play then something real.

She didn't see it that way, which is what counts.
