Re: Remind me Never EVER look at AVEN again!

If reporting an innocent person for nothing is not vigilante modding then tell me what is? Vigilante modding is defined as moderating the thread (while not being a moderator) by making posts telling people what they are or aren't allowed to say. It has nothing to do with whom you report or why. Rep...

Re: God speaks

C'mon if they'd removed "Get on your own website, do a little research, and wake the f*ck up David Jay. " then wouldn't you be saying the admods were overly sensitive to any criticism of their great messiah and leader? If I've understood correctly, expressing critical comments about DJ and...

Re: Remind me Never EVER look at AVEN again!

They do admit they are wrong sometimes. One example was precisely the problems Siggy et al brought up with the archiving policy. I understand you think Siggy deserved to be censured too (and again, it's not published whether someone is nudged or warned) but the fact remains that the team admitted th...

Re: Remind me Never EVER look at AVEN again!

I've not followed this part (so I have no inside information), but I find it hard to imagine you could have been warned just for saying that. That statement does not break the ToS in any way.

Re: Remind me Never EVER look at AVEN again!

I think there must be a misunderstanding. If members are "reprimanded" then they are sent a PM explaining the decision. The PMs are not always perfectly phrased, and I wouldn't always write them in the same way, but I think they are doing their best at explaining them. I've mentioned befor...

Re: Remind me Never EVER look at AVEN again!

The Admods hate me like there's no tomorrow. They are always spying on me. It came to my attention that my profile, founded in March 2015, got more views than David Jay's profile, founded back in 2001. I'm pretty confident in saying you are mistaken about this. I think most admods are, like myself,...

Re: Remind me Never EVER look at AVEN again!

I don't think anyone wants you to leave Tan. But if you're going to start a thread like this, you must expect some forthright (but honest) opinions that disagree with your own - perhaps even some you find offensive. That's the flipside of light moderation.

The AVEN PT/BoD's position on this might be of interest to some people. If not, they are entitled not to read it. I'll let you know when it's out, regardless.

Actually it's not really analogous to viagra: it treats low desire (or is supposed to) not physiological responses. We're currently working on a statement.
