    That's utterly ridiculous. I hope that that dies on the vine, but I can't tell with DC these days.

    Given there's no transcript of either the FBI commemoration event, or of Trump's phone call, I don't see how Kelly's foot is in his mouth.

    It's he said/she said until somebody starts providing footage or transcripts.

    Gotta admit, I ain't watching your random ass videos. I don't understand how you have time to watch videos that are so long yet say so little.

    Not much different from reading an article. Some articles are long as well but some have their share of fluff wording to extend a simple talking point. Secondly, not everyone has long videos and you can watch bits and pieces here and there of any video or skip around. One more thing, how could you know they say so little if you admitted you didn't watch them?
    I have bad hearing damage that will never get better but can get worse. I manage it in part by avoiding unnecessary noise/audio in my life. As noted, I lost a family member who went insane due to this same kind of hearing damage.

    You incorrectly speculate that I have watched none. I have watched some of the supplied videos: my disdain for the videos is based upon actually watching them. I generally figure no one else is watching them because they're pretty incredibly stupid. Too much "well I will never get that time in my life back". A fluff video is going to waste twenty times as much time as a fluff article. Maybe I just have more going on in my life? Don't really know, don't really care.

    Preppy has hearing damage or some shit. He doesn't watch videos in case he's wrong.
    I'm probably wrong about a lot of things: as a grown ass man you get used to it. Generally speaking, though, facts are not just bound to videos. This isn't The Ring where the only way I can change my life is to watch a woke video. If the only way to know A Truth is by watching some jackass ramble for twenty minutes, I call shenanigans. Pretty sure you can just write that truth down and save everybody twenty minutes.

    Nope. New/SF5 mods have been solid as far as I'm aware. I would prefer not to throw anybody under the bus here. It doesn't matter to you.

    "Passive aggressive".

    My nigga, this is active aggressive. The ban without even warning was dumb. I'm saying it. Lol.

    I never implied you were involved, Damned. RockB was dumb for doing it too. But I'm always hearing mods talking about "banning is the last case scenario" and yet we can't even let OG members off with a warning while StickyJim over here gets pass after pass.

    So yeah. I have no problem letting my opinion on it air out to dry here.
    Wish I could frame this as the perfect example of why everybody will always bitch about whatever happens. Not picking on you: just heard bitching this morning about exactly the opposite point of view. :lol:

    To be clear, Rock was posting as much pornography as possible in order to pornicide. As screenshots later pointed out, his plan was to get his account banned. I had no knowledge of that at any point until it was already over.

    I didn't know any of this when I got notified this morning waking up to Rock's porn posts. Rock has a history of being provocative/random, so I cleaned stuff up and gave him an initial warning while I figured out what was going on. Around this point I started getting forum errors using the mod tools, significantly slowing me down. (Plus or minus laptops are not a good way for me to be efficient: desktop is where I can actually get stuff done.) Noting that his posts were continuing, I reset his password, thinking that somebody might be on his PC and trying to fuck with his account status. They continued shortly after that, so I removed his posting access, still not sure what was going on. I was leaning towards believing somebody (else) was trying to get him banned, since it just all seemed dumb.

    While I was trying to sort stuff out, a rogue mod went through and deleted his account from orbit. It appears that that was what was fucking up SRK's tools this morning for me: we got Vanilla support to fix it, and that mod is no longer a moderator. There are better ways to handle problems than they were handled this morning. Don't delete non-spam accounts without a craaaaaazy good reason: it fucks up SRK.

    So. No, I did not ban Rock. I took no significant action towards Rock, as things were taken out of my hands. I'm still unclear what Rock's goal was, and so am unable to say how I would have been able to help him out with whatever was going on.

    As regards stockyjam... I've been keeping a loose eye. If you have questions/concerns PM me or the area mod. Use the Report button if you think there are serious problems with a post. It's a fucked-up weird community, and it is what we make it. Hopefully that's something valuable to y'all.

    So Arpaio is potentially more fucked by this than if Trump hadn't pardoned him. Interesting. Please appeal please appeal please appeal

    Don't even care which way this ends up getting ruled by higher courts, just think this aspect of law is fascinating.
