Is censorship of threads and double standards in applying Guidelines the Fluther way?

Asked by allengreen (1618points) August 10th, 2008

Has anyone else noticed the nazi-like intolerance of some moderators recently? Noticed that the more “points” one has the more likely to be combative, not follow the topic, and generally hateful? Notice moderators apply rules in an unequal manner so many threads read like a one sided conversation? Is this the virtue of the collective?

Nope. Can’t say I have.

No, you just seem to provoke people and be jerky, in which case, you are deserving of the “Nazi-like intolerance of some moderators.”

Puppy kicker.

Allen, it’s getting old…if you’re unhappy here, why not go elsewhere?

To be fair, some puppies need to be kicked from time to time.

I have not noticed that. During my travels on the Information Super Highway I have noticed that most boards have at least one troll, and it seems you have introduced us to Fluther’s very own.

Your questions are obviously designed to incite people. Why complain about the reactions you receive when they are very clearly the reactions you seek? I find that very confusing.

Interesting, the whole puppy-kicker thing.

no no astro…that’s just horrible.

@supermouse—I am complaining about the the censorship. But maybe you need the protection of censors….

You never have anything nice to say, you flame responses that disagree with your own ideas, and you constantly complain about the moderators – why are you here??

If you don’t like the way the site is, either suck it up and stop complaining, or just leave. The rest of us are here to have serious discussions, where it’s okay to disagree and debate, and we’re not bothered by those who can’t stand to be wrong or provoke us on purpose just to complain about the responses or deletion [i.e. you].

Check the comments on youtube. See what a free-for-all looks like.

@Allen, I have never required the protection of censors. That’s most likely because I don’t ask questions deliberately designed to piss people off then respond with belligerence when people get pissed off.

Can we please get back on topic. I believe we were discussing puppy kicking.

AC, you crack me up

More importantly, why use the word Nazi in this question? You are unhappy about a question and answer website. When I think Nazi, I think brutal, fascist tactics, not the moderation of ad hominum attacks that you are so fond of.

AstroChuck, haha…

SuperMouse's avatar

I would like to go on record as being against puppy kickers of all stripes, and puppy kicking in general. As a matter of fact, I’m gonna go out on a limb here and say, that unless it is to stop or prevent an attack, I am against canine kicking of any kind.

@AC, thanks for getting us back on topic.

AstroChuck's avatar

Yeah, but what is your opinion on drowning kittens?

SuperMouse's avatar

Now drowning kittens, that’s a whole different ball of wax. But that is a discussion for another thread…. joke

tinyfaery's avatar

no no no no animal abuse here please. I referred to puppy kicker because an earlier thread reagarding calling people Nazis. On iPhone so I cannot post a link.

AstroChuck's avatar

I hate Nazis. There, I’ve said it. Sorry to be so controversial.

SuperMouse's avatar

I know that question, it was mine! (Well, I think it was mine, it might have been someone else’s but I did ask this question.) I was very happy when I read Shilolo’s response taking Mr. Green to task for his use of the word Nazi.

@Tinyfaery, no animal abuse – ever – I promise!

AstroChuck's avatar

Well, maybe just a little.
