Notice how we are grasping for a systematic / technical solution to what is essentially a social issue?
If we review the ban list - we have to ask... WHY did these people flame, troll and run against the grain to the point of removal??
Some set out to do that from day 1, I'm sure. Other's were offering no more than a sharply expressed and bluntly put opinion. Indeed, I've been asked many times, here on PM and at other boards how I've managed to see this thread out without being banned!?
It puzzles me too - I can only think that there is an inconsistent approach towards banning in place. An attitude of 'well, if your face fits, your in'?
It's my feeling that we should review the recent banning, accepting that things got a little nuts for a while.
/couldn't hurt, could it?
Overall, we should look at WHY flame wars erupt here, WHY users 'troll' (and that's sooooo subjective I hesitate to use the word) and what can be done to change things for the better.
I'll readily accept that no board ever in the history of boards will get along without banning someone at some point... But in the last few weeks UER has forcibly excluded more people (and more good, genuine explorers) than it has in the last YEAR! (Data based on actual banning and user resignation)
If this continues, Av is going to have to look at a dedicated web-server to run the banlist page!
PS: Yeah, tried not to post to this thread again, but it turns out I care. /Shrugs.
We all had ostriches. My dad had an ostrich farm! I remember one day someone came in and said the high altitude bombing of Kosovo had been a limited success, so we all went out and celebrated… by killing an ostrich and boiling it in kiwi fruit.

I used to care. I used to try my best to work around other people's problems and try to find a solution that would work for both of us. I even signed up on other UE forums like Deggi5 and Abandoned and whatnot, to try to solve problems on "their turf" so to speak.
It didn't work. The trolling didn't stop, and since I was essentially "putting myself out there", people took the opportunity to insult me even more. You have no idea.
I don't care anymore.
Now, I run UER for those who like UER. If you don't like UER, just go somewhere else. Don't troll, don't spam, don't try to force your opinion onto me. Just fuck off.
huskies - such fluff.

I'm back. Maybe everyone should do what I did.
Left at 3:30 AM with no sleep, drove really fast for a hour and a half the get to the site. Got there a little before dawn, and a cop who is trying to keep things safe. Stayed till 3:00 PM, I was literally falling down with fatigue from climbing hundreds, and hundreds of feet with 40+ pounds of gear. I had to leave even though it was still bright. Drove back like the mad man I am. Slept for three hours.
I feel great, I'm soar as hell, got grit in me teeth, and camera bag, well it's everywhere! I did tag this site; I wrote my name in the grit with my finger. I left footprints too. What the fuck.
I hear ya! I didn't climb as much as you did, but I got into a site this morning that I've been itching to get into for about 2 years. I took 381 pictures of which probably 3 are good. hehe. But, I explored and it was nice. That's what this is all about. I'd rather do that than websites any day. Don't be worryin', be explorin'.

I had opinions but they were shot down because it was "his site and he could do whatever he wanted". So don't turn around and tell people not to say that when you got mad at me for giving opinions and telling me "It's my site, I'll do what I want".
You want to drag our dirty laundry out into the open, Anne? Let's go.
Firstly, you started out
giving opinions. I didn't agree with your opinion (nor did anyone else in the group) that we should ban all the "stupid new people." (And boy is it hilarious hearing you call some of those people "little kids," when they're highschoolers just like you.) Since you didn't get your way, THEN you started making demands. Not offering opinions. You made demands. And if you try to tell me you weren't making demands:
Gee, did I imagine that night you showed up at a party with your Mommy in tow specifically to have HER browbeat me into banning users you didn't like? I'm sorry. When some pathetic teenage girl drags her mother to a party full of adults specifically to argue over a fucking internet forum
, that's doing a little more than giving your opinion.
So, don't go comparing our issues to what's going on around here. If you'd pulled even a fraction of the garbage with Avatar-X that you've pulled with me, you'd have been banned a long time ago. Not to mention, I attempted to placate you EVERY STEP OF THE WAY until you left, which is another thing you wouldn't have gotten around here. And, surprise, you're STILL not banned from my forum.
Next time you want to bitch about our personal problems, do it in a PM.
