I know TAZ has been overly welcoming to certain groups of people with specific views over recent years, but if it's at the point where people are allowed to post stuff such as their ridiculous antisemitic George Soros conspiracies, and content by (and in support of) white supremacists freely, I'd say it's at a point where it's gone too far.

Just a free tip.

I haven't seen anything like that and there isn't much traffic here so a quick scan of recent posts doesn't take long.

Feel free to report posts as described so they can be dealt with.

Awwe, look at this. Someone ACCUSED my post as support for and I quote "antisemitic." Who supports George Soros? I didn't, and i never did. I bet you gonna report this post and zappaDPJ is just going to blindly delete it.

Excuse me while I laugh at both of you.

No wonder England is a cesspool of brainwashed people...

OP is ridiculous. I have a feeling that HE is one of the SneakyDave stooges who stir trouble just for fun. And zappa is obliging.

Threadloom / TLChris I can't reach you. I need to speak to both of you in PM.

Well, I can see the leap from enthusing about a platform that seems designed to appeal to the far right trolling, but I’ll admit the leap to anti Semitic views is a bit of a logical leap.

Also, I’m from England, and while I wouldn’t disagree that this nation has its faults (by god it does), i hope you’re not suggesting that just because one is from England they must be brainwashed etc. I don’t *think* I’m brainwashed…

I'm mocking only them, relax. You're fine. I posted a long post about George Soros' garbage past and this OP wanted my post to go, so magically, Zappa went like "oop! That's gone!" just cuz this dude cried about it. It’s stupid.

He is accusing me of things I am not overt about, and Zappa is having way too much fun with his admin powers.

I'm not happy with how Soros is hurting everyone with his billions going to companies and DA's. That is all I f'n said and OP is just crying to mods about it.

Take your garbage, OP and shove it up in your mouth.

On my first reply above, I had only gone back a short time. Digging further now, I see more of what the OP is referring to.

This board is about forum software, hosting and related topics. The political stuff probably doesn't belong here.

No. Unless you've seen the post shut up. It was in browsers thread. It was not political. I simply was trying to get people off MOZILLA, and Firefox.

Look at this, StaticAge has support from people holding his hands and having fun with trolling.

Ah but it does, with some limits. Forums and communities are a thing we talk about here, and whether a given community is choosing a life of censorship is a matter of debate, especially if it is a venue that could be used alongside a forum to cross promote content.

A platform that sets out to be pro free speech, for example, has some overlaps with forums that claim the same thing and with all the legal debates that ensue, the only difference being scale of user base.

That's not where this guy is going. He's not talking about the community structures as such and now he's using this thread to further his propaganda and attacks on members and Admins.

See, Pete? This is what I'm talking about. Just read it. And compare to the original post. Look at it. Taking context out, and making it up as he goes along.

I've explained myself 3 times already that that's not what this is about.

When I posted the content do I think it has components of politics? Yes. Is it ENTIRELY about politics? No. But that's their argument.

I'm attacking only two people. No one else. Just keep that in mind. I am mocking them, because this is absurd.

And for those of you with mod powers, just go to bash, they have a private chat to organize these "protests."
Can you tone it down. zappaDPJ has btw many years of admin work under him if he deleted your post then something was wrong with it.
If you want to support him and this garbage ...go ban me, I'm sick of this ****. I don't deserve to be called out and accused of something im not for!

Support Zappa! Go. Go support him.

EDIT: i just thought of this.. The thing that gets me is, the timing of it all. Why did it take the OP so long to report it? That's how I know this is an attack on me.

I posted it about it like around two weeks ago. Magically he comes out and goads zappa to delete... check the time stamps.

So, if you didn't want me to attack you, don't come at me, bro. I didn't do anything to you. If you felt attacked - THAT is YOUR FAULT.

Hi fellow TAZ member

One of the more important lessons you'll learn as a community admin is that how you say your point matters as much as what you say.

When someone attacks you, you can respond
- negatively and defensively
- reasonably and from a position of strength

Be grounded in your own sense of confidence and maturity. Be assured in what you're doing. And if others don't quite agree, that's okay -- that's literally the joy of online discussion.


This entire topic is an example that no matter the superior technology of forum software, we ultimately are all held back by the insinuations, poor decision making, immaturity, and foibles of humans.

I rarely reply to threads I've moderated but for reference; a member made a complaint, I reviewed the content and found the embedded video to be unsuitable for these forums. If the OP or anyone else is unhappy with my decision feel free to take it up with the forum owners.
