    I am also curious about this one.

    Probably tons of spammers, daily. I know it happens where I work. Is the word "pills" or something in the banned handle? Copypasta the handle, Google it, if that's how you get your kicks. It a stupid handle to use here, and is probably the same elsewhere.

    I'm guessing that when a mod bans someone they get the option to type in a reason and if they choose not to, nothing shows up (as per your screenshot).

    re: disposed of quietly and without sorrow

    My screen looks exactly like the OPs.

    I oppose having this info hidden. If mods are banning people, other users have a right to know the reason why, and that's the way this site used to work.

    So why the change? And why no reason given (that I can find) for the change?

    re: disposed of quietly and without sorrow

    Its always been that way.
    But the recent change is that-

    NONE of the ban reasons and ban durations, from past and current cases are visible any longer. B& for spam? for CP? for collecting 10 points in a 7 day period? Temp or perm? Its all a mystery now.

    Ban reason was helpful for us to remember and track abusive posters.
    And people who had left voluntarily.
    And people who suffered personality conflicts with moderators.
    And the ones who posted one-too-many dome pix upstairs.

    e.g.
    7-day b& for Mutante = tears and lamentations
    infiniteb& with a good excuse = rage and lamentations
    infiniteb& with no excuse = half the site ragequits

    Spammers aside, knowing why somebody was b& also acts as a reminder to everyone of the outer limits to others, some shit is just not needed or wanted. Bat-shit crazy is usually obvious to everyone and needs no explaining, you can go check the person's last post for the most part to figure it out.

    I believe this could be the dumbest thread ever on WWP. I think you agree, which is why everyone is posting anonymously.

    So true.

    I do not grieve the "loss" of trolls.

    re: disposed of quietly and without sorrow

    I am also curious and concerned about the lack of ban transparency.

    re: disposed of quietly and without sorrow

    Yes, especially when "trolls" is such a subjective appellation...
  15. Anontacular Member

    re: disposed of quietly and without sorrow

    Truly. I have better things to do than lurk bans. Anyone want to protest?
  16. Anonymous Member

    re: disposed of quietly and without sorrow

    seconded.

    I liek. Anon bans!

    giving the board reasons, gives scientology another chance to make the tech work, and twist more sociopaths in. Like the credits in South Park. Sorry guys.! Nothing to torture!

    If you want order, go raid!

    Confucius say: crowded elevators smell different to midgets.

    Let them stay in their elevator, far far away. The smell is too obvious when present even in a big place.

    re: disposed of quietly and without sorrow

    I'm not posting anonymously. I don't think it's dumb to want to know why the mods make the decisions they make is important. And you know what? Even if it is dumb, I still want to know.

    The janitors where I work aren't independent actors who do whatever they want. They keep the place the way the occupants want it, not the way they want it.

    I don't think transparency is dumb at all, and I think this site needs more of it. If people think they have to post anonymously because someone else will think they're dumb, well, I don't have any comment about that, really.

    re: disposed of quietly and without sorrow

    Ok. Sure. I found it dumb because it was the second thread on the topic. LOL "janitors where I work".

    Don't force me to get all "tough love" on you Chrisanon - I WILL repost Austin's video ITT if you don't lighten up/smile a bit. :D
  21. chrisanon Member

    re: disposed of quietly and without sorrow

    I didn't see the first thread and I AM smiling . But I'd like to see Austin's video, anyway.

    Maybe I should put more smilies in my posts. XD

    re: disposed of quietly and without sorrow

    Someone posted in ChitChat about spammers getting b&.
    Someone posted in that thread, a complaint about b& reasons accidentally
    A modsock posted "DOX or STFU, and make a new thread in the proper subforum"

    so...

    I see you need it, too. :D

    This isn't funny at all. This is my favorite song. I thought you meant a vid from the Austin anons :-/

    Of course, I'm just sitting here with my moonshine eyes and my suit and tie. I've learned a lot from rolling the dice in this game called love. And I AM NOT just your sex machine, Sissy Lala.

    lmao :)


    bet you forgot all about those pesky rationale-less bans, didn't you?
  27. Azazel Member

    re: disposed of quietly and without sorrow

    AnonMSW was banned on 08-29-2008.

    Why are we discussing a ban that happened 2 years ago and demanding transparency of all the mods actions? If he was really that important why not say something earlier like as in those 2 years ago.
  28. chrisanon Member

    re: disposed of quietly and without sorrow


    Just when I was putting on my black net shirt and dancing on my car.

    Why was Herro banned yesterday?

    And we used to be able to see the reason MSW was banned. So why'd you remove it, and why was this policy changed?

    I don't think I'm your sex machine, either.
  29. ARC Member

    re: disposed of quietly and without sorrow

    I don't know why ban reasons are hidden now either.

    I blame Sue, his picture is in the margin of the American Heritage Dictionary near "arbitrary" and "capricious".

    I think he has a chip on his shoulder...

    I cannot help thinking this is not a coincidence.
  32. TinyDancer Member

    re: disposed of quietly and without sorrow

    My GOD. You could be right.

    My hunch is that, since Herro was sitting on 9 infraction points, he tripped the autotempban trigger AGAIN.

    Note to mods: Herro is supposed to be protected. Remember??
  33. Anonymous Member

    re: disposed of quietly and without sorrow

    For what it's worth, the ban reasons have been invisible for several days or weeks already. I remember looking at a banned account a while ago and the ban reasons were gone. I don't know if this is a deliberate setting, or maybe an effect of a forum software upgrade.

    Nice speculations.

    So much joking, so little answering. This really is starting to get interesting.

    re: disposed of quietly and without sorrow

    OP here.

    The reason why is exactly as stated:
    In response to the apparent modsock who advised in the last thread "post screenshots that show evidence of this, in the appropriate subforum, or STFU".

    As stated, I was hard pressed to think of a user who:
    * had been banned, was still banned
    * had an unforgettable ban reason/date/duration
    * wasn't likely to have had that info made confidential

    MSW was the first I could think of that fit these criteria.
    Are there others I could have chosen?
    Probably, but it would have required more effort.
    Additionally, I thought (foolishly?)

    * the ban was totally uncontroversial

    and no reasonable person would argue against it

    That wasn't my demand.
    I was curious as to why this changed, and if the change was permanent. Ban reasons/durations were available until quite recently, I did not have any reason to ask 2 years ago.

    This thread was created to provide dox.
    You don't liek dox? :|

    re: disposed of quietly and without sorrow

    Holy craps! I just wasted 2 hours of my life reading that td anonMSW thread. My eyes started bleeding before I could get to the end.

    So what was the conclusion? Just a nut case with too much time to make up drama on the internet? Or a spai?

    It was like watching a bad TV movie from the 70s and falling asleep before the end. I'd like to know the end, but don't care enough to read more dramas to get there.
