At least the nutter chose a good photo of me

stickers

So let’s be very clear. The stickers going up around town are nothing to do with RiotACT, although I am glad they used a nice photo.

Any defamatory or illegal comments which we have deleted and they publish are entirely their responsibility and we do look forward to seeing the legal fraternity getting medieval on the arses. (yes we’re looking at getting the hole closed)

I didn’t ask for my facebook photo to be stuck up all over town. But I’d rather be the person having their photo plastered than the nutbag doing the plastering.

If you’re wondering why some comments get modded and some don’t then our guidance from 2009 remains as sound now as then.

Mostly we’re deleting spam, and duplicate comments. There is the occasional regrettable rant by someone who’d become unfortunately over-involved in a discussion and then there’s petty squabbling no sane person would care to read so we don’t care to allow derail conversation.

Every now and then someone wants to bring personal abuse to an author rather than discuss what’s been said and that’s probably what these arsehats are trying to get to.

But mostly it’s spam, duplicates, the ravings of nutters, defamation, breaches of child protection laws and the grumblings of arseholes. If this person has got nothing better to do with their life than bring these onto the internet then I truly pity them.

Peter Brent’s recent musings on moderation largely sum up my feelings.

But more importantly I’d rather spend my time finding interesting things to share with the RiotACT readership the arguing minutiae with obsessives.

But I thank them for using a decent photo.

[This is not an invitation for every aggrieved poster to complain their comment didn’t make the grade. It turns out there’s another website for that.]

What’s Your opinion?

At the risk of being a 2 post nutbag, could the offender possibly be………Crazy Chester?

The stickers do look pretty cool, just checked out the other site and it is boring. Did a bit of self searching and got 1 out of 2 possible hits, I must be getting less moderateable in my old age.

As for the point of the other persons site, are they pissed about being moderated all the time? Sure I have been moderated before but have never cared enough about it to make a site dealing with it.

Too much time on some peoples hands I think. I get the impression that the site owner wears tin foil hats, sits in his skype-cave (toilet) and thinks JB is his arch enemy (god i wish i had an arch-enemy, JB you lucky bugger).

I’m obviously not trying hard enough, I did a search at that website, and didn’t see my name once (obviously not trying hard enough). There are however quite a few posts there from what I would call “the usual suspects”.

I do get the feeling there are lawyers for various parties who are right now reading over that website with a fine tooth comb.

What a bizarre thing to do and what an utter waste of time and stomach acid. Glad I’m not trying to conceal my own identity since it throws up your login name too.

What a bizzare use of their time, but then again I have the kind of job where I cop this kind of strangely displaced anger at the world too. It sucks. For what it is worth, it is usually people who have some major issues in their life which they are reluctant to devote any time or energy to because it requires facing their own flaws head on and they can’t find the stength to do that. So they displace all that anxious energy and rage onto something or someone else.

Ah…so you work with my ex-wife, then? 🙂

For someone so keen to stick your image all over town they seem strangely keen to remain anonymous themselves. Don’t worry about lawyers – I’d be contacting the police. It’s the kind of thing an unstable person would do IMO.

Oooohhhh….shudder…that’s not a nice place. I don’t think I’ll go there again.

I assume this individual is using some sort of scrip to detect and repost deleted comments?

Have you considered messing with them by posting comments (which have content specifically intended for their site) then modding them off your own site….

Can you confirm or deny reptoid involvement in this sticker campaign?

ps. it really is a nice photo.

Holy smokes, the flaw has been fixed. Now kindly DMCA this nutter into oblivion!

I’m disappointed I’ve only been modded once. I’ll have to try harder. 🙂
