A note to so-called moderators


You want to write an email? Forget it. I'm not interested. I'll be back in the usenet where ppl still know how to deal with trolls. And you kids can keep living in an illusion of having "power" -- have fun.

Bye.

Hi,

What is this about????

You have 2 posts, this one and the following:
Quote:
No i meant you should exchange eth0 and eth1 on that rule because you want to allow these packes from the outside world (internet) to the inside...

But please understand I'll stop supporting this issue unless some nazi "moderator" reconsiders his behavior.
From this thread: Iptables manual masquerade problem

I haven't found any comments by any moderator concerning you, let alone one that gives you the right to call a moderator a nazi (bad, but especially if you do it in public).

Care to explain?

BTW: Reported.

That would be in one of the 1000s of usenet groups that are unmoderated??? Ummmmmmm--OK.

@pixellany: Either that or multiple accounts, both crossed my mind.

But fighting in public with a mod (legit only in my mind if it concerns the larger part of the community) and calling him rude names is where I drew the line and decided to report the post (and gave the OP a chance to explain).

Seems like the userbase wants it that way. Well, nvm. You'll never get some long-lasting enthusiasm from ppl with self-respect, though.

@ baroque: Why the sick fascination with Nazi terminology?

You kids?

What way?
Quote:

And who are the "ppl with self-respect"?

Offending terminology, generalized phrases and nowhere a hint of the actual root of the incident, not the best way to explain yourself.

For those unfamiliar with blockwart: Blockleiter / Blockwart (WIKI)

People with self-respect have respect for others as well. Politeness and respect for each other are nessecities in every community. Calling someone a nazi is probably one of the most respectless and offending things you can say to someone. Aggression has never solved anything in this world.

I certainly don't agree with all things said and done (not talking particularly about linuxquestions.org), but I try not to insult people. What I do is to try to discuss the subject and share ideas. Hopefully that will result in a good compromise both parties can accept. Again that is only possible by respecting each other.

Hi Blue Ice,

see, generally I'm with you on that. I just refuse wasting my time on "politics" with people who already showed their disrespect for me. I joined these forums because I thought the idea behind it is worthy -- and I helped a lot of people while only receiving help on two questions, only one of the answers was satisfactory.

If some moderators here think they can apply their "power" on somebody, this is just ridiculous. This would work with some little kids, but certainly not with mature ppl.

And on a side note to druuna -- I'm german, unsolicited nazi analogons are made on a daily basis in politics here in fact, once starting this picture, I just wanted to keep it, your reaction matched so nicely...

@baroque:

If people disrespect you, you can do 2 things react in the same disrespectful way or be the bigger man. What you should consider for yourself is what benefits you most. Most of us will come to the conclusion that being the bigger man is the best way of handling things. I know, sometimes it is difficult to be the bigger man especially when you feel frustrated or if people are disrespectful towards you.

I think I have read the post you reacted to, which caused you to be banned. To be honest, I agreed with you... However I don't agree with the way you did it. In that thread you lowered yourself to the same level as the person that started the thread. In my opinion, the moderators were too late with placing a reaction to that thread. I can understand though that it is not easy to keep up with all the post and I am sure that you will be able to understand that as well, because you told us that you are active on usenet. That's why I think all the members on this forum should try to hold people responsible for what they say. You tried to do that! But you probably could have done it in a different way, so people wouldn't be offended.

In your post that you addressed to me, you have shown that you can respond in a proper way. I hope that we can enjoy the benefits of your knowledge again in the future.

Blue Ice, I really appreciate the effort you are putting into this, it's a nice gesture. In fact, I guess, I (for my part) am just to lazy for this level of diplomacy in my spare time. What I personally like about usenet is the freedom practiced there -- everybody decides for himself what he wants to read. Maybe I'm really wrong here -- sorry for any inconvenience.

baroque (nee zirias) has contacted me offline, so unless anyone has something productive to add to this thread I'm going to go ahead and close it.
