Astro is going to lock this thread
|Posted by RescueMe1060|
We have yet to hear from Astro, she's the one who placed the restrictions on his account from my understanding.
Just went through my inbox of private messages from Blackhawk, he was having problem with the above named moderator back in August of 2017. If I continue to look through my backlog of messages, these problems may stem even further back.....in other words, shit has been going down for a year now!
So now that I have a moment to sit down at a computer and type something, instead of just lurking, I'll go ahead and respond to you.
Your intense hate for me is fascinating. Buster Posey wasn't THAT good, but I'm not sorry I didn't trade him to you in Fantasy Baseball that one year...I didn't have a better option for catcher at the time.
In all seriousness, I feel like you have especially over-estimated (or maybe it's under estimated in this case..) me. I do not, have not, and will not allow pure emotions to dictate how I choose to moderate this site. I've never made it a secret I dislike blackhawks novellas of superfluous and hyperbolic information, but right before he was put into troll mode was when things began to get ridiculous. I got messages from users (mostly newer members) asking various questions and raising various complaints about blackhawks posts.
I made a note of this to the moderator team asking why he was originally banned (because I wasn't here at the time and wanted more information on the matter) and if there was any action we could take that would help with the complaints we were getting about him. I NEVER EVEN SUGGESTED TROLL MODE. But that's when Av made the call and the action and that was it.

As to the other point I really don't know why I Astro has taken such an intense dislike to Blackhawk. As far as I know the two of them have never even met. It does seem like she and a small handful of other mods have taken over defacto day-to-day leadership of this site and as such are enforcing a personality litmus test on who they wish to be members.
You and RM (and likely a few others) seem to think I'm a really heavy handed moderator. Truth be told...I'm not at all.
Not to say I don't do anything but I haven't made a moderator move/decision more than deleting a duplicate post or approving/denying FM applications in a fairly long time. I live and work a very busy life and although I read the forums and keep generally up to date, but I'm not often actively "moderating", as it were.
Don't forget, as mods, we're a team...we discuss most things before making a big move, regardless of what it might be. We have no problem calling each other out on shit and being honest about our own biases. So, please stop assuming that we're all a bunch of autocrats.

No...you're misinformed. I spoke to the man himself and the man said ASTRO was behind this whole conspiracy against him.
1. I don't know who "the man" is in this context, I assume blackhawk. Conspiracies take time. Mine's valuable to me. Don't flatter yourself too hard.
2. you're sending me creepy PMs and I'm supposed to take you seriously when you post?
Long story short, I never mentioned or hinted at the idea that blackhawk be put in troll mode. Granted, I put up no objection to that action, either. If it makes you feel better to blame me, then by all means continue doing so, but before you continue accusing me of things I haven't done, maybe consider that I'm not the rage-driven, emotional, vindictive cunt you seem to think I am.
