BD: wuz you bein a bad boy?...
It's a badge of honor to be worn proudly!* Personally I've chosen not to post there since mid-May when they started going south. When I tried to point out to the Community "Leader" how the renegade mod was posting in violation of her own "posting rubric", I was chided that "it's never cool to call out a mod." TUG was created that evening & live by the end of the next day. Frankly, they're not worth of any content any of us.
*In most cases. In re Ronii, it was just the next in a series of well-deserved kicks in the butt.
Well, it would appear that Ronnie's suspension is over - maybe he whined to the mods about something you posted. Or was it SATTSO?
What did you write, Boggie?
This is the email I received from the FT moderator that banned me.
I was suspended some time ago by essexjay and appealed without success. I have tried to address the current suspension with FT and squeakr told me to not send any messages to him/her. I honored that request although I had only responded to their message with a correction. I in turn used the Contact FT tool and my concerns have been been ignored.
Regardless the 30 days are up tomorrow although I doubt I will be supporting FT unless or until some changes are forthcoming.
I reached that conclusion six months ago. It should be mined for subjects (in case we've overlooked anything here) but don't bless it with our content.
squeaker is the pr*k (russian for moderator) who hangs out in the "Practical" non discussion part of the safety and security forums. VERY tight ship there, which is why it is so lifeless. I don't post much on that brain dead part.
the checkpoints and borders part is much more wide open. they should just ban people from squeaker's tight-*ss section.
Wow. I've seen WAY worse stuff in there, especially from Ronnie himself. WHY do they let that sorry excuse for a human continue to inject his unique brand of vile inhumanity, but ban people for trivial (and mostly supportable!) comments?
That place isn't worthy of our attention. The mods use the same approach as TSA: "Respect My Authoritah!"
Well i have posted a couple of comments that I can pretty much tell chew toy is the one that took them out but hasn't said anything to me. Its okay i have screen captures and the comments where marked as such, so they know there moves are being watched, and I dont care if they ban that screen name not like it will stop anything. Chew Toy certainly has a lot of keyboard courage that face to face wouldn't even eek out a appearance.
FT is useless anymore and I hope chew toy and the ilk are proud of there TSA kneepads as they've earned them. Randy must be laughing counting his money because IB is running that site into the ground slowly but surely.
You know, I've said this elsewhere, but it bears repeating.
I was more active on a different site when I was active in the ranks of a particular airline, though I did lurk around FT, and knew colleagues who were more active there. It was expected that if you self-identified as a member of "management" you were fair game. Just look at some of the posts regarding the NW/DL merger, and I haven't really gone in to look but I imagine the CO/UA board is pretty brutal at the moment.
If you don't have a thick skin, and are either implementing, directing, or performing certain policies, you don't belong posting, much less reading posts anywhere.
Northwest & Delta officers & upper management were always regarded as public figures. Some of the DL mods did try to go off on a tangent with their "zero tolerance" policy but Randy stepped in & put an end to it.
We used to be able to criticize Blogdad Bob as well but at some point after Randy's departure they must have dropped some bad acid and started sucking up to TSA.
The current "Community Leader" doesn't have Randy's insight or leadership ability. She's just part of the moderator "in crowd" that has become an end in itself.
When Randy was starting Milepoint, Squeaky got all depressed because it was not going to be all icky sweet & nice like Fodor's. Now she seems bent on implementing her agenda in TS/S while usage plummets. It's about to hit what we call a LO_LO alarm in our control systems.
I managed to get myself kicked off a Freecycle group yesterday for questioning a moderator.
Essexjay is an odd bird. The justifications she gave for hounding me were really weird, and I wound up with a heck of a computer virus about the same time I was suspended for 7 days. Those two things taken together are why I didn't go back. If I were you I'd stay away. Nothing good comes from tangling with crazy people and/or dysfunctional organizations. Give your time to healthier relationships.
PS: The way Ronbo runs wild at "the other place" is seriously sick.
It appears they have suspended polonius permanently. He last posted Oct. 4, and he pretty much posted only in TS/S, so I'm guessing he's laid out in the FT morgue. He had one of the best minds in TS/S, far brighter & more cognizant of what's going on than the dipoop:s that have been running ruining the place.
RIP polonius. You're sure welcome here if you find us.
In fairness, I believe TSORon has been suspended from *there* before as well.
They have tightened up quite a bit, but I have not runafoul of them yet. The only time I had comments changed or deleted, I was informed that I had "incited improper responses from other members" = I was nice when someone else was being not so nice, and the ensuing commentary was sewer-worthy = my fault I guess. I have pretty much fallen off the radar there too I guess. I have no problem with them trying to clean up the personal attacks and keeping bad language out of the threads, but it seems the status quo has leaned too far one way, without lively conversation these sites are just boring.
Ron, any idea why you get slammed just about any where you go?
Ron who? Do I hear an echo fading into the distant void?
No, that's public support for the establishments of authority in the US you hear fading away.
No, I swear there was a post by Ron here earlier. Let me check on what my other hand was doing, and I'll get back to you tomorrow.
It popped into the Muse thread.
Ron's wisdom assembled for the ages. Future generations will thank us for our foresight.
