If I had any confidence in him not being probably the only one who got banned... well then I wouldn't be commenting here, to be honest.

But, my point is... sometimes it seems like it matters more who you are than what you say. I've never gone on the ustream, but if it's anything like the forums, where THE NEWSBOX IS FURIOUSLY MASTURBATING TO THE PICTURES YOU POSTED IN THE PHOTO THREAD... so, yeah.

Its like taking all of the bad parts of the forums and having them in one room at one time.
Also, the newsbox is written by Jeph.

 It kind of does matter who you are because who you might be is some dumbfuck who does stupid shit all the time.

I love how dipshits bring that newsbox post up as if it is anything other than a really obvious Yelling Bird-esque joke.

Here, here is a thing I can do for these people.  I will delete it from the news box right now so that people never have to think for the two seconds it takes to tell that it is a joke.

You are welcome.

When the board is yours, you get to do pretty much whatever you want.

I deleted my post because I realized how old the thread was, but now that it's bumped anyway...

The point is, either it's creepy, or it's a joke. If it's creepy, then you're saying "i'm allowed to be creepy", and if it's a joke, then you're saying "you're not allowed to make these kinds of jokes, and I will call you creepy when you do even though that's BS". And it's definitely BS when someone's allowed to make a joke but anyone who continues the same joke is banned as being "creepy".

If you want to say "Jokes like this are allowed for some people but not for other people", that's fine, since you run the place and can be as unfair as you want to... but don't pretend that makes it fair, especially when you don't explicitly list who those people are, and don't pretend the ban was for "being creepy" rather than for "making a joke that would be acceptable coming from someone else"

Some people are not permitted to make "really obvious Yelling Bird-esque joke"s, and others are. That's a simple fact, and the only way to change it is to actually change it, not to play word games.

I've been on the ustream chat and it seems weird to me that someone would get banned for the incident that the op described. I don't know how often people get banned, but it gets crazy in there.

Looking at the description of the incident objectively, probably what happened was whoever hit the ban button saw "<Useless_Proverb> fapfapfap" and no other context, and assumed the worst. So (assuming my interpretation is correct) in one sense he was just unlucky in that the context wasn't seen. And not looked for very hard either, which was my other point earlier in this thread. End result is still "some people don't get to make those jokes".

The original kick/ban probably wouldn't have been about being creepy, more like him behaving a moron repeating stupid things in the channel.  Possibly he thought he was being funny, but I can only see stupidity/repeating an overplayed meme.

"THE NEWSBOX IS FURIOUSLY MASTURBATING TO THE PICTURES YOU POSTED IN THE PHOTO THREAD" was written by either Jeph or another admin about a thread in a part of the board that is full of regulars who would understand that is was a joke.  That is the difference.  Context.  You can walk up to a friend and make an in-joke.  Doing a similar thing to a complete stranger will almost certainly get you a less positive reaction.

There is basically no way to know who is making a stupid joke and who is being an absolute creep unless that person has been around for a while and we know what they are like.  Saying that regulars/people who've been around for a long time/have a larger postcount get away with things is in part missing the point.  They don't necessarily "get away with things" as much as I know that they are joking, whereas I don't know some 10-post guy's sense of humour yet.

Also, regardless of the intention when people say things along the lines of "Hannelore and Marigold should totally have sex!" I don't see that as a joke, because (unless it is someone putting shit on the people who constantly say stupid shit like this in the QC Discussion area) it contains absolutely no elements of humour at all.  Maybe I am lacking a part of me that makes me see humour in stupid shit like this, but if I am I don't think I would ever want that part of me restored, because the thought of becoming even more of an idiot than I currently am appalls me.
