Sweetness and Light 

Some excerpts from another email on the BBVoyeur controversy:

Not true only one person was banned. Shiloh was banned permanently. Another was too but it got cut to 7 days instead (Applecrisp). Marley received 5 days. Freddycat received 5 days!

Why should one go and the other stay when the one staying is guilty of far more than any 100 posters combined, including Shiloh? Shiloh asked for reconsideration of that decision as did several others and he was told they are considering it. As far as I know they didn't get back to him.

There is incredible bias by the mods to keep and protect BBVoyeur (hence the revolution) in some misguided idea that because his politics are on the right, he deserves to stay. There is also some buzz that he has another name he posts as on another computer with a different internet provider.

Boy they really have a hard-on against Shiloh.


Just a RE note: Of course BBVoyeur is posting with another name - he has been doing that for years. He may even be using two internet providers, though why he would do that when he can use all the free anonymous proxies he wants. And he is still sitting at his server posting webbugs on sites so he can monitor who is hitting sites such as Jokers Update and logging their IP addresses.

The More They Stay The Same 

From the mailbox:

Another little blow-up at Jokers Updates "Current Affairs" (CA) forum, this time over the annoying habits of one particular Troll-like poster: BBVoyeur. That degenerated into discussion of moderation, a huge no-no in the "open moderation" forum that is CA, when some wondered why said poster never seemed to be disciplined.

'He is ruining the board!' '
The mods are biased and unfair!'
'You all do the same thing, it isn’t just him!'

Examples of numerous offending posts were even listed, by an Admin, not a protester. Fun was had by all, and just about a year from the big WaWa blow up.

As far as I know, only one poster got banned, but rather than the usual 3 day ‘vacation’, banned permanently because ‘we are fed up with the antics’. Said bannee was generally a respectful and thoughtful poster, but she went a little over the top on the subject of BBV’s special treatment and the bias that the mods showed him (OK, a lot over the top; she pulled no punches).

Then, as the topper, the forum was closed for the day for us to reflect; however, as it is the one year anniversary of Bobbie’s death (BeeJay), the closing was in her honour. Bobbie would be appalled. She loved that place and would never see an honour in closing it. How morbid.
