I guess this little meltdown of yours has been in the slowly happening in the wings for sometime now. Almost painful to actually witness it unfold here though.

Good luck dude.

Hey you should rename the mag, "Piss Queer"!

HaHa! Piss Queer! HaHa take that Foley Guy!

It takes you two days to formulate a response and that's the best you can do? It's not even original- we've been calling our gay contingent Piss Queer for years.

Oh yeah, Badger I can now see the depth of our friend ship, but that just how you Black Rock Rangers are right! Ranger are so cocky telling us civies what to do all the time from up high on your pedistal. So you guys wear skirts right. Bet you're a fag too wearing those sissy skirts.

and your name, badger- they like to go down in holes. Hey which one, the cornholeys. You should change your name to Ferret. Yes Ferret Boy fits you fine fag boy!

I'm going to break my silence and say it: This anti-gay bullshit needs to fucking stop NOW.
It don't matter if it's directed towards Badger or anyone else.
Most people know I consider Badger my online arch enemy, ranking right below Fred Phelps on my personal disgust scale. But even with that I won't sit back and see anyone flame him with shit like this.

A to Z, you are about to have a really nasty fucking problem coming at ya. ME! Find another angle of attack which I know you can....and let this part die the death it deserves. Or I'm going to go ballistic on ya.

That's a fucking guarantee and promise...and when I get through I guarantee the admins will ban me because it's going to be brutal.

I came out of my closet at Kansas City's Gay Pride celebration in 1989 where I skipped a family reunion to attend and ended up being on KMBC Channel 9 and KSHB 41's news coverage of the event. I blew my closet up.

I happen to be bi, I currently have a girlfriend that is bi, she knows about my orientation and has no problem with it. So if you're wanting to attack me your current approach sucks swollen donkey balls and ain't gonna work. So what were you trying to do again? I remember now...you were showing your closed minded ignorance and engaging in some jackassery. I have quite a bit of experience dealing with asshats such as yourself....I'll have no trouble giving you a teaser of what I enjoy doing.

So, what’s my beef with the following AIIZ posts… well, for one thing they are hate filled rants.

not baiting? of course your comment was baiting, joel.

i dont have as much a problem with calling someone out on what they post, especially when its as obvious to everyone else who replies as such that this topic progressed into the dark area.



but dont try to play this down in being all about THIS topic after you estabilish a history of such comments.

I seem to recall something about radically inclusive...

Methinks someone should stop by Jiffylube in 07, maybe someone over there can remove whatevers stuck up yer ass.

For someone using GREEK names to have such hatred for others due to their preference for GREEK sex baffles my mind.

I am straight but have NO PROBLEMS with other people due to sexual preference. There are lots of better things to worry about.

A few thoughts from our sponsers:

Radical Inclusion
Anyone may be a part of Burning Man. We welcome and respect the stranger. No prerequisites exist for participation in our community.

Participation
Our community is committed to a radically participatory ethic. We believe that transformative change, whether in the individual or in society, can occur only through the medium of deeply personal participation. We achieve being through doing. Everyone is invited to work. Everyone is invited to play. We make the world real through actions that open the heart.

Immediacy
Immediate experience is, in many ways, the most important touchstone of value in our culture. We seek to overcome barriers that stand between us and a recognition of our inner selves, the reality of those around us, participation in society, and contact with a natural world exceeding human powers. No idea can substitute for this experience.

Whoa! Hold it. SB, I thought this was about A II Z's abnormal behavior and not Joel the Ornery. Joel's been on this board for a very long time and I don't see him as a problem. Did I miss something here? What has he done that warrants the one more fuckup and you're banned approach? I just don't see it. Having met you I don't feel you're an unreasonable person to deal with but in this case I can't see where you're coming from. So I'm asking if you would support your position a bit, if that's not too much to ask. This board has never had any of the frequent posters permanently banned.....this would be a first. It deserves a further bit of explanation.

Geeze, SB, do we have to worry about you finding our posts distasteful and so banning us from the board at this point? That's certainly what it looks like right now. What part of the TOS has Joel violated that you'd throw such a threat around in a public forum?

Frankly this is part of why I advocated not having any moderation at all, way back when the conversation was still relevant. It's not fair to you, SB, and it's not fair to everyone else for you to have to play this role and this exchange illustrates just one of the reasons why. Sorry you're having a bad week, or whatever, but I think Joel's posts don't merit the kind of threatened moderation action you've discussed here.

In the past if one user's actions warranted admin action a review of the situation and a proposed course of action were posted in Case Studies. Then the community weighed in on it, then....and only then was a decision made. This was done to prevent some previous problems like the Captain Fuckwit injustice.

So coming back to this case if there's a (Edit: Serious) problem (Ed 2: One that the community has failed to resolve on it's own...and I see this one very much as a work in progress)....let's take it to Case Studies, let the community work through it, and come up with a workable solution. The idea of a moderator taking unilateral action flies in the face of how this board has worked...and worked reasonably well with for years. SB, I like you as a person...and I know you want to clean up the board...and God love you for it. But if you act out on your own and don't give the established process a chance to work...oh boy....you will have made an even bigger mess than you intended to clean up.

Thanks for considering my point of view on this.

Well said, K. Very well said. Spec, I love ya's, and you KNOW I love ya's, but you've gotta let us be ourselves. If being contrary in an assholish manner is no longer acceptable here, I'm going to have to say goodbye. I don't mean to sound petulant, but I gotta be me, ya' know? Sure, we're cranky assholes sometimes but were HONEST cranky assholes, and that makes all the difference to me. We're not the Rainbow family nor Oracle-gatherers, we're burners. We play with dangerous toys and like to set things on fire. Someone could get hurt, ya' know. And that's the way I like it, and I won't settle for less.

My name is Sensei, and I'm an asshole.

Smooch!

That's it? If I didn't know better I'd consider that post to be a bit of "baiting" as it's just begging for a response. And not a good one either.

In any event....if it needs to Case Studies is waiting. My hunch is if this gets that far the community will come back saying this is another tempest in a teapot if they don't just yawn and shrug and suggest who they think should wear the drama queen tiara for today. So can we get the unilateral admin threats out of the way and work this out like we have so many times before?

sensei: its a question of how much - its a question of balance.

there is no reason for this level of open hostility and what you are referring to 'assholist behavior.' so if you want to try and compare it to something, then please dont try the opposite touchy-feely extreme of the rainbow family or oracle-whatever-the-fuck-that-is. try something a bit more realistic. and no one said anything about not being open, but for many you would have to include that under general snarkiness.

the problem is the nature of some people who use this board to rant with no intention for discussion - its intentionally negative. its obviously taken too far when others make the attempt to step foreward and positively influence some things for improvement, only to walk away in disgust and apathy.

so yeah, the balance is going to shift a bit. if that means loosing some people... then thats whats going to happen. if those people are the ones who enjoy nothing better than negative fucking about, well, thats not really a loss to everyone else who wants to use the board for other functions.

ultimately its the org's board, and even though its been great to have it provided for us all to use - its not ours, and its supposed to be about the community. so i fully encourage anyone to go out and set up their own board.
