Ronin has been warned and banned from this thread. It will be his only one. We will not tolerate this garbage here. Thank you to Lord Buckley for reporting it.

Please see above.
Yes, a cursory knowledge of the topic content or at the very least a half-hearted search would reveal the shittitide of info itself and how it was and continues to be manipulated and regurgitated

so apparently i caught Ronin's post late and there had been some heavy editing done when I saw it which made it seem less than kosher but not outright nazi. Thruth got to it first so we're reviewing the particulars.

Ronin has been banned for being an anti-semite. Leitmotif is next on the list unless he gets his act together.

I had meant the anti-Semitic conspiracy theory that Scherensammler had posted literally above my post. But, yes, those are some of the fundamental skills that would make a decent moderator.

To be clear, I had meant in mind the gratuitous dissemination of anti-Semitic imagery and rhetoric, to say nothing of the frequent use of the "jew" (always tellingly in lowercase letters) as an insult by a couple of the usual suspects and more recently by Ronin and Jupiter (I think that is the name). Often this goes by without so much as a public warning and certainly without any real consequences for the anti-Semite in question.

Needles to say, I'm glad that you're finally taking charge of the situation with more than a slap on the wrist.

I was referring to the same post and article.

But if your point was that no moderator zapped that post, make a report citing it as anti-semetic.

The fact is that it was part of a larger historical conspiracy theory that was debunked a long time ago.

You are an academic are you not?

I did not zap it because it is not the anti-Semitic opinion of a member.

I intended to post links to the conspiracy and debunking and ask Scherensammler why he posted it. But I got tied up with mundane work.

You could have done the same using your fundamental skills as a member of this forum and an intelligent human.

If you are a forum-filter, report. If you a participating member, engage.

Honestly, zapping anti Semitic posts has been one of the key bits of moderation, and there hasn't been tons of that, just a few usual suspects. Just because there hasn't been a big public spectacle doesn't mean it hasn't been looked after.

We've exchanged pm's about this before, and I was pretty earnest that you are painting with mighty broad brushstrokes. I Think if you take a more nuanced veiw of our members you'd see it's not so definitive.

You can drop the attitude. It is your collective irresponsibility and nonchalance as moderators that has unnecessarily brought this issue to a boiling point. You should be apologizing at this point rather than self-righteously swinging your dick.

Your constant apologia for Scherensammler and Leitmotif is so preposterous and abhorrent that it isn't worthy of a serious response. It is, in fact, hard not to think of some other reason to your active participation beyond self-conscious banter and trolling. To think that this kind of reckless dissemination of conspiracy theories, anti-Semitic rhetoric and imagery, and other kinds of racism is, indeed, unbecoming of any human being. Why would it also need a well-formulated affirmation each time that it appears for the culprit to be actually warned? More importantly, if what is at stake are simply long-discredited conspiracy theories, what place do they have at all in a forum on "dressing well"?

You can drop your attitude as well, especially if what I posted went over your head and you think I'm apologizing for Scherensammler and Leitmotif. Fuck that.

Because if that is what you think I have overestimated your ability to do anything but finger point.

Your pissy responses offend me as much as the shit Leit posts.

Ronin's post was discussed, deleted and he was banned without your citizen policing. Lord Buckley reported it and it was zapped as soon as I checked into the forum.

If I had the ability to ban him outright for his anti-Semetic posts I would have done so on my own without having to bring it to Rambo's attention.

I'm tired of all of the bullshit, whiny cunts and wannabe Nazis lately on the forum.

I am really pissed that Leit thinks that people read his racist shit and think of him as a clever SuperTroll™ instead of a racist twat irrespective of what he really is or thinks.

It got him sucked into Ronin's trap of editing in the anti-Semitic shit after Leit liked it and responded to the first draft which was basically an anti-English screed.

And no, I am not apologizing for Leit's stupidity. He pissed me off to no end today.

And now I am cleaning up his shit and justifying myself to you? Fuck that x2.

If you don't like moderation (mine, doghouse), take your complaints to Rambo, who moderates too.

If you get no satisfaction from him, leave.

I've wasted too many words on you already.

Sandy Vagina

The latin translation Sandis Vaginitis (pronounced 'San:dee/z | vadge:n:it/is' in English), which is plural, literally translates to "womens with chafing minge"

To have sand in one's vagina means to be bothered, annoyed, or angry and to moan like a little bitch. The vagina in question is a proverbial vagina; people of either gender can have a sandy vagina.

I think that is a shame and I do not understand why this particular brand of racism gets special attention.
It doesn't. N Bombs and lynching pictures have been and will be dealt with similarly.

Togliatti has been put in timeout for a month for some unnecessary bullshit.

Update - Togliatti has been permanently banned for being a cunt.

Lord Buckley has been banned for threatening other members via PM. That WILL NOT be tolerated.

I'm certainly in favour of curbing bad behaviour, but can we afford all of these bannings? Soon, there will be just a few of us left!

Still cannot have people provoking others and then those others retaliate with threats.

Bad business

correct
But they're free to come back under a different name, right? Like noodles.
most cant help themselves and will be snuffed out
Noodles will always get re-banned no matter what his name is. He just can't help himself

Gentlemen, may I suggest, that there has been a failure of moderation here.

Sadly.
you mean buckley should have already been timed out preemptively after his recent waywn post, which would also have avoided yesterdays sorry affair of events?

I think we can all agree it was a bad idea to browse DW on a big screen when children were present. The whole forum is pretty much NSFW.

Exactly who the fuck browses the internet with their children. The whole thing is filled with traps. He is most likely a liar or else extremely irresponsible and probably unfit to care for his children.

What would you have suggested be done differently?
Well, for starters I'd have banned Tog much earlier. The guy has form, you've banned him before I believe, if so, it was pretty much, inevitable that you'd end up banning him again.

This is silly, who says he was browsing the internet with his children? His children/wife only have to catch a glimpse of his screen walking past.

I mean, its not as though you expect to see gay porn when your browsing a clothing website is it? Its also another reason why we flag 'dodgy' stuff with NSFW.

And then after that?
