Major DV announcement mods WANT you to see
« on: Mar 23 07 01:29 »
Just when you thought things couldn't get any worse, and it's not even April Fool's Day yet...

     [TABLE id=Table2 style="COLOR: midnightblue; FONT-FAMILY: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica; 10pt: " cellSpacing=1 cellPadding=10 width="100%" border=0] [TBODY] [TR bgColor=gainsboro] [TD style="FONT-WEIGHT: bold" vAlign=top align=left]modulusruptura [/TD] [TD colSpan=2][img title="" height=15 alt="" hspace=3 src="http://www.discovervancouver.com/forum/icon_posticon.gif" width=15 border=0] [FONT size=1]Posted - 3/23/2007 1:42:45 AM[/FONT]   [HR noShade SIZE=1]    After consulting with other mods, I and the others were not happy with the current limbo that the discretionary situation with harrassment etc. policies. We have come to a decision that the best solution would be to throw things wide open.

From now on, unless otherwise announced, there will be no deletions or banning for harrassing, stalking, insulting, flaming posts.

Posting of personal information and pictures without permission will continue to be punished by banning.

So if someone is bothering you or following you, fight back, ignore, or go to ds. On DV the mods will not step in. You guys and gals are on your own.

 Not too surprising actually, considering all the reluctance to clean up and all the hateful messages that're deliberately left on there. (Of course complaints about them are promptly deleted!)

 They can always say "We were kidding - har, har"....

 ... or they might be testing the legal limits of "free speech" in Canada. Sort of like, how far can we push it, before they shut us down?

 What do you think?

  this is not a matter of 'pushing it'... it has nothing to do with hate speech or anything like that... this is simply a policy that a few of the mods have chosen to follow in the handling of the daily squabbles and flaming that go with the forum... if a poster wants to venture into the free and open frontier that is the internet forum called dv, don't whine to the mods if someone insults you or flames you.... it goes with the territory. We are not going to participate in the kindergarten atmosphere of tattletales and whining and crying and he said she said and so and so said something mean to me kind of crap... If a poster can't handle being flamed, there is an easy solution.

  A few of the mods, but not all of them? How about having a consistent and unified policy of how such incidents should be handled?



I'm not a legal expert by any means, but I have a feeling that what you're describing is unconstitutional. There's only so far you can push the law before you feel its breath on your back. And I think this is coming pretty close.



Then there's also the curious case of some mods' orchestrating, if not tacitly approving and encouraging such attacks, to fulfill their own personal agendas.



So it's not just [FONT face="Times New Roman"]"[/FONT][/b][FONT face="Times New Roman"]the kindergarten atmosphere of tattletales and whining and crying"[/FONT] but major bullying, harrassment and attempts of intimidation that're involved in some of the daily bullshit that takes place on DV.



Methinks this kind of change in policy seems to serve their interest best, since there won't be any disagreement with other mods.



Perfect.

Aside from what I outlined above there's even a larger issue:

  > don't whine to the mods if someone insults you or flames you....

  Can I ask you then: What the fuk are you guys there for?



Do you have any role, any function, any responsibility there at all?



As I wrote in a message on DV:



 [TABLE id=Table2 style="COLOR: midnightblue; FONT-FAMILY: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica; 10pt: " cellSpacing=1 cellPadding=10 width="100%" border=0] [TBODY] [TR bgColor=whitesmoke] [TD style="FONT-WEIGHT: bold" vAlign=top align=left]Raging Poodle![/TD] [TD colSpan=2] [img title="" height=15 alt="" hspace=3 src="http://www.discovervancouver.com/forum/icon_posticon.gif" width=15 border=0][FONT size=1]Posted - 3/23/2007 3:35:02 AM[/FONT]

  [HR noShade SIZE=1]  

 You might as well say "We don't give a fuk" and get it over with instead of mincing your words.

Are you guys all fed up with being mods? Why not just quit the damn thing instead of playing these stupid games?

Would be good if DV had this type User Agreement:

Therefore you acknowledge that all posts made to these forums express the views and opinions of the author and not the administrators, moderators or webmaster (except for posts by these people) and hence will not be held liable.

[span style="background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255); color: rgb(0, 0, 0); font-weight: bold;"]You agree not to post any abusive, obscene, vulgar, slanderous, hateful, threatening, sexually-oriented or any other material that may violate any applicable laws.

Ok.  Might be a little stringent but I am surprised DV does not have any kind User Agreement whatsoever, not even an 'Enter at your own risk', before you go into the forums.

Most other forums have this.

 Did you know the other forums that are all part of the whole DV club (they're listed at the bottom of the home page of DV) have those kind of user agreements and they have very stringent rules?  Why the DV web-site administrators are so particular about rules on those forums and not DV continues to mystify me.

  For example on ClubZone here's some of the rules they have:

  [A href="http://www.clubzone.com/idealbb/rules.html"]http://www.clubzone.com/idealbb/rules.html[/A]

  [SPAN class=whitenorm]1. No Racism, No Threatening, No (citing) Victimization (via PM) or Hateful posts / Retaliation of any kind against a member, or group of members. Hateful post will NOT be tolerated. Any Racist or Threatening posts will result in the suspension of the user account. Don’t test your limit. [/SPAN]

[SPAN class=whitenorm][/SPAN]

[SPAN class=whitenorm][SPAN class=whitenorm]2.  No Cursing or Swear words in the Forums. We encourage you to use our Communities as a forum to debate topics, but please use proper adjectives to express yourself. We do not tolerate circumvention of our word filter or abuse upon another member. [/SPAN][/SPAN]

[SPAN class=whitenorm][SPAN class=whitenorm][/SPAN][/SPAN]

[SPAN class=whitenorm][SPAN class=whitenorm][SPAN class=whitenorm]3,  We ask that any nudity over the video feeds be kept to private rooms, or to private conversations (with both parties consent). Sometimes we (everyone) just don’t want to know what happens in your bedroom. Also, please do not ask members to break the nudity rules. Just because they are on cam, doesn't mean they have to give you a peep show. Calling out things like "show me your t**s" may get you banned. [/SPAN][/SPAN][/SPAN]

[SPAN class=whitenorm][SPAN class=whitenorm][SPAN class=whitenorm][/SPAN][/SPAN][/SPAN]

[SPAN class=whitenorm][SPAN class=whitenorm][SPAN class=whitenorm][SPAN class=whitenorm]6.  No Nudity or Pornographic Material, graphic or otherwise. This includes sick jokes & bad language. Any displayed images or links to such content will not be tolerated.
Additional: Bodypaint is not the same as clothing. These images will also be removed. [/SPAN][/SPAN][/SPAN][/SPAN]

  [SPAN class=whitenorm][SPAN class=whitenorm]12.  If you are a long standing member, act like one. Lead by example and assist other newer members rather then attacking them. We look upon our veteran members to use this opportunity to teach the newer members the appropriate way to use the message boards and live chat. [/SPAN][/SPAN]

Hey Gordy, why not post what you just said on DV.  Might be interesting to see what happens.

 DV isn't that kind of site (pointing to the rules above). And Raging Poodle, do you have a job? Seems all you do is obsess over DV and come over to DS and post and rant and rave. You are trying to protect your girlfriends, but dude, she was being ridiculous last night in her accusations, it was a joke...anyone can see it. Lighten up man, this is the internet. Suck it up.

 Interesting.  Over here, if someone was "bothering" you, "harrassing" you or even "stalking" you, that person would be in deep shit from Teh Borken!  

 It's interesting to know that the mods there know how to regurgitate what Mike just said.  Why couldn't Mike post it himself?  Oh, is the Lord too busy?  *rolls eyes*

[/p] Yep. Something like stalking would be cause for an immediate data dump to the relevant authorities. I have no intention of letting anyone use this site as a platform to commit crimes against someone else like stalking, etc.

The real trouble with reality is that there's no background music.

Well, I guess the theory over there is that it isn't a daycare centre and adults should know what they are getting into on an anonymous board.
