    rather than a private one as it was intended, we may as well air it out.

    He responded to a users post requesting information with what was essentially, "Fuck you whore, get out".

    That response from a moderator has never been appropriate in a subforum where a user is asking for information and assistance. He could have said something like:

    "There have been specific recommendations made in this thread which will help you meet your specific goals in relation to your stomach/midesction. My personal suggestion is that you focus on a diet which contains high percentages of low fat meats including proteins ... blah blah blah ... and exercising 3 times a week focusing on cardio and blah blah blah ... and I assure you that if you keep up this regiment for 90 days you will see results. If you don't have time to follow these simple steps then I would respectfully suggest to you that you are not very serious about your stated desire to shape your midsection."

    And gotten the exact same point across WITHOUT crossing a line and bashing the user.

    When I approached him about his post in the thread he basically told me to go fuck myself too. If I didn't like his response too bad, that's how he's always been and that's how he's going to stay. If I didn't like it I should demod him and he didn't care.

    Slow the fuck down!! Who said anything about demodding? All I did was ask if he thought his comment to the user was appropriate. All he had to do was say " hey man, my bad, I won't do that again" and it would all have been over right then and there. Then in the middle of the PM's back and forth he decided to go make a PUBLIC thread about a PRIVATE matter and air our laundry. This is not acceptable behavior.

    He was absolutely NOT banned over the post he made, he was banned due to how he handled everything AFTER the post he made. He brought this on himself and there was absolutely no need to demod him until his actions AFTER the post he made. Nobody made him handle this poorly, he chose to do that on his own.

    I regret that he chose to handle it in the manner that he did, he did a great job 99.9% of the time in this forum and in general.

    She'd already been told what she needed to do and ignored it. He was just supposed to keep repeating it?

    :dunno: not having been involved, i can't speak for specifics, but there are more discreet ways to handle things. that's all.

    was his way effective? sure. was it the best way to go about things? IMO, probably not. :hs:
     
  18. ok i wrote them for you in the other thread but as i posted it it got deleted

    -OT AW Jinx posts her nudes in OT AH (backstory)
    - She comes in to F&N asking for advice
    - Advice is given.. she doesn't listen to it and continues to ask for advice. She's one of those people who ask questions about everything and want a "dumbed down" version of everything.. anyway basically wanted an easy way to get her excess fat shedded off so people don't laugh at her during the summer.
    -Pur says gtfo and dont come back if you wont listen
    - Glen intervenes and says pur shouldn't have told her to gtfo his internets because they are Glen's internets
    - Pur is demodded and people are dissapointed
     
  19. but this is where the hypocrisy comes into play:

    Glen does this all the time on Off Topic... Pur did it once and gets demodded


    hmmm something doesn't add up does it?

    No, he was supposed to post something similar to what I posted above. He can't just be telling people "GO FUCK OFF YOU WHORE". That's not acceptable behavior from a moderator in a subforum. Had he done it in the MAIN forum, I wouldn't have given a flying fuck.

    MAIN FORUM versus SUBFORUM


    You ever see me tell someone to fuck off in OnTopic? In F+N? Road to Recovery?


    I didn't think so.

    Also do you read?

    He wasn't demodded for the comment. He was demodded for how he handled it after that in conversations with me regarding the post.
     
  24. Didn't he tell her what to do in the first place? She chose not to listen? What makes you think that she's going to listen to some made up B.S. like that which you posted? If she wants a whole fucking diet routine written for her with what excercises she should be doing, then she should be in the market for a personal trainer. (As much as I'm against them) For some people just need the satisfaction of someone doing every bit for her (which she does).
