By that point I was getting tired of the thread and personal attacks on myself and Thayos. The actual thread that pissed Kao off I think was one where someone posted some thoughts on some illicit Beta videos and Bethany1 posted something like "You better ban this SOB Wint" or some such. We do get paid to moderate here, but it's not enough to deal with that kind of bull.

Are you serious? People were talking crap about her left and right, flaming her threads, hijacking. Whatever her pinion may have been, right or wrong, we all have the right to have one; an opinion. Some guy posts some BETA link, and she sarcastically says "Ban the SOB!" or something close to that, and that set you off so hard, that you decided to perma ban someone?

Ack, I figured I might get some poo-pooing from my post, but I didn't think I would start a dramafest <.<. I won't lose any sleep over it though, seems like there were prior issues. I guess I'll go back to finding info on my own and creeping the forum >.>.

I think the reason we piled on Bethany (as well as the other potential sockpuppets) was this.

If you're the new person at a party, and you stand there and start loudly criticizing the decor of the guest of the party, and nobody except one dude that no one else really likes even knows who you are, the rest of the party's guests are going to be offended. Especially when you start spouting off that half of the house guests who were invited to some other party called Legacy were all arrogant entitled pricks and you wanted nothing to do with them. And then you start asking if anyone has any drugs.

Who are the house guests going to start arguing with? Who is the owner of the house going to eject from the party?

Newbies are welcome in this forum, but it's better to ask simple questions, give simple answers, and be congenial to everyone until your post count is above fifty or you've been rated up enough to hit scholar.

Newbies who start flinging poo on their first post will be taunted. Simple as that.

It's quite simple really. If you are giving **** to my admins, are making a constant effort to disrupt the site and annoy other posters, and yet you only have 20 posts of questionable redeaming value to your name, you're probably going to eat a ban. If anyone has a particular problem with that, please feel free to take it up with me.

Oh, and just to be certain. I do not believe Kaolain is a Legacy Player at all. I'm open to being corrected on this, mind you.

Oh a side note, I've been acquainted with Kao for going on seven or so years now, (back when you could rate down admins, remember that one Kao? ) and in that time I've gone from being completely confrontational to him, to being "Hey, that post was awesome."

I ain't afraid of critiquing these guys on forum features and administrative actions either. But I can stand up for this one. Bethany1 got what was coming to her.

That said, I think the final word on this issue has been spoken. Request to Lock.

Why are we talking about bethany as if "she" wasn't the most obvious sock puppet in the history of sock puppetry?

Mostly because of the different posting styles, email addresses, and IP addresses. In all likelyhood she really was someone that Poubelle knew, and probably coerced into harassing us Smiley: tongue

I think the lock request is a good idea, so I will lock.
