Moderator question: Ban from thread?

Recommended Posts

You already have the Zerperning, a cult like circle-jerk echochamber of toxic "positivity" only and delusion, where only the faithful are allowed to enter and participate. That's where most of you whiners came from now that you stepped onto the main forum and have to deal with opinions other than the indoctrinated. Go back to your cave and you will be "safe" there ;).

It would be great if it were opinions but it is obvious that it’s only about destruction.

I was waiting for the first “you guys are just an echo chamber and can’t handle criticism” comment as soon as I saw this topic and here we are, not even an hour after the topic was posted.

You can see tulo and Sukrim constantly giving valid criticism to XRP and Ripple for years now, and yet no one is telling them to go away. You know why? Because they bring value to discussion.

There are topics and debates on this forum that are truly interesting, but get interrupted and trashed for no particular reason. You have a counter argument? Write it in a normal, articulate way, support it with facts and we’ll have a great forum for everyone.

I agree and the rules of the forum are the same for everyone, if they are broken they will be warned and eventually banned.

Now banning people just because you don't like them or they don't support your worldview, is plain wrong. The rules are the same for everyone and go both ways.

Also as I said before what is being proposed here already exists in the groups section, where people are barred and banned at entering or participating at will if they don't conform to indoctrination.

I disagree. A "group" should be dedicated to a special interest of some kind..

In the general sections open to everyone, I like to skim through the news and general discussion. I also skim the TA threads just to see if anything is predicted to happen in the near future even if I don't believe it to be reliable/factual/useful.

Threads such as the AMA with Nicolas are interesting and have been mostly free of problems, but should someone post something offtopic, abusive or otherwise it would be nice to be able to remove them.

I do not participate in that group and I am not aware of what is discussed there. I am only asking for "grown up" discussion in the main threads and I should not be forced off the forum by people who do not wish to (or are not capable of) keeping discussion relevant or on topic.

The moderators have a hard time keeping up with the abuse on this forum, allowing thread creators to police their own topics would remove the burden of work from them. Off topic posters can post as before and would not be banned from the forum, but only the thread that they are unwelcome on. If the system were abused by the topic creators, then readers would simply move to another thread.

Support your statement – who on this forum was banned solely because of his/her views or because moderators “don’t like them”? People get warned and banned for insulting and slurring, but I have not heard of a case where someone got banned from the forum because of their “worldview”. I am not saying it has not happened, but if it has, you should be able to name a few.

A perfect example of where this feature would come in handy are the TA threads. Personally, I’m not a fan of TA, but there are certain people in there constantly interrupting posters that bring value to the topic.

You don’t believe TA works? Great, open a separate topic and state the facts, use trader’s success rate as proof, warn people of dangers of following TA advice. It’s even OK to comment the TA thread and post arguments against other TA posts, just do it in a polite, civilized manner.

If I were following the BTC or XRP TA threads, I would find it super annoying to try and read the actual TA posts among all the trash posts from both sides. Those two threads are super ripe for a function to ban certain people from that thread only. Right now it’s like trying to hear the speaker in a room full of arguing, screaming people.

I was talking about the 'ban-from-thread' feature would open the possibility to banning a person based solely on the fact you don't like them or want them to participate in it, furthermore that you can already do that in the groups section. The main forum shouldn't become and echo chamber or cult gathering as some of the groups are.

But new ones always come up. 

I am certain I have seen a commonality of style among certain posters...  having been banned,  they resurrect as a new member.  I don’t think there is a cure for it but it’s not unnoticed.  
 

I’m also fairly certain that some negative attackers have simultaneous multiple avatars with which they support their own bile.  Just my thoughts..,  I could be wrong.

I think that is a total nonsense.  I’m in the Zerpening and the very last thing I would ever tolerate is a cult.  
 

I like it there because the bile of the rest of the forum is largely unrepresented.  It’s definitely not an echo chamber as I was just recently strongly debating a point of disagreement with others.  There have been many such debates there.

The ‘to the moon’ exuberance is always tongue in cheek,  and often is totally absent while Russian Gulag type humour reigns.    I suspect all who claim it’s a cult just haven’t been there,  or simply didn’t fit in with a fellowship vibe,  and are now sour they are out.  If you or others don’t see it that way I think it’s saying something about your maturity.
