Yeah, hi Joy. 

The first message was to Mr. Freeman.

The later statement was to you.  I wasn't calling you an asshole.

Not to sound like a luddite, but is there a "how to" somebody can send me?
Last time I moderated a board, it was an actual bulletin board, where I was responsible for removing outdated flyers and painting over epithets and well endowed stick figures.

No, theres not.  You have to make it up as you go along.  Either choice will always be unacceptable.  This is the paradox of moderating a virtually unmoderated BBS.

If you want to stay "friends" with everyone, I would take a page out of Lindsey's book, and do nothing.  (no offense to Linds)

Also, make a new redirect for BBS email.  You don't want the horseshit in your regular mail.  You'll get "report to mods" mails about once a day on various things.  Possibly much more when theres a 'fight' occurring. 

You could review the TOS, but it doesn't say anything you don't already know.

Haven't you figured out he enjoys fucking with the people on this BBS?  I was good with the moderators, but it was clear they didn't really want it--as I wouldn't.  I have to be careful, though, because last time I made a similar comment, it was taken as a personal attack, which it was not meant to be.

So, good luck with the assholes.  If anything it'll be interesting to watch. 

Reminds me of what my mother used to say, all the while I was growing up:
"People are assholes!"

Royce PM'd me.  Here it is unedited:


Quote
You were welcome, up until the moment you "consulted" some magpies who reiterate whatever you wanted to hear in a closed-door situation rather than having a discussion with the actual involved participants. 

I'll tell you what happened far as I know if you like.  I have no hard feelings.  That's not very cool to talk to Ian like that.  He said thank you and I expect he meant it. 
What did you want him to do?  Make an announcement that some of the things you have said are entirely unacceptable? 

I am the consultant far as I know and he didn't come to me.  I sent him an email 2 months ago and forgot about it.  Couple days ago I get a "thanks for thoughts" and "who would be better?" response.  I gave him 5 names, none mine.  That's what I know.  The facts are available for the whole internet to see, if he consulted at length I expect it was with the BBS.

Don't PM me.  Ever.  And don't start telling me what to say and whom to say it.  Everything you PM to me is going straight to the boards, every single time. 

Personally, I'm glad he relieved me of the responsibility, so I don't have to deal with people like you any more - unless I feel like it. 

What I expected him to do was send me an email or a PM, rather than leave it in some place where I might find it.  That is how you treat people if you have any interpersonal skills, or respect for the thousands of hours you've VOLUNTEERED to their property. 

No surprise, there.  He thinks everybody wants to do him favors.  I just wanted to make sure nobody posted anything insanely stupid that would get him put back in jail, or kept there if it violated early release conditions - you know, an actual contribution to actual freedom.  Maybe that's too complicated for the narrow-minded.  So fuck him.  Zero class, low-thinking egomaniac.  I will never, ever do him a single favor, ever again.  Not because of the change, I don't care about that.  It's HOW, which is the big insult. 

Forgive the fuck outta me for wanting to do my part in keeping the arrested or incarcerated from getting Rodney King'd.  You think the fucking Keene or Manch cops don't read these webs?  I guarantee, within the near future, Ailcaire (?) will be back in here calling to crash a cop funeral somewhere and shoot the attendees.  I can't wait. 

(Hey -  that guy who volunteered six thousand hours to my website?   I'm just gonna give him the Italian high-sign because I'm much too important and busy to give him a personal fistbump. - What a goddamn asshole.  Seriously.) 

And no surprise that you're a run-behind bitch.  Knew ya were, know ya are.  I stopped crying to daddy when I was knee-high.  Every single one of you pussy fucks are exactly alike.  You, Libman, that Riddler moron, Hellbilly, and that fucking retarded cunt Parcgreen/Widespread Panic.  You want to shit everywhere, and don't respond to anything but being kicked the fuck out. 

Now you'll have to be a hypocrite, when push comes to shove.  And I'm gonna laugh my fucking balls off and throw every damn moment in your face.  I can't wait to ridicule that stuff. 

In fact, I think I might see what it takes to get banned.  Maybe I'll post my own bomb thread, in Chinese or Arabic.  Then you fuckin' assholes can spend all day deciphering it.

Welcome to hell, Nark.  Hope you got nuthin' to do.

This: "I know where you go, what you review.  If you typically review your
posts to page three, I'll start fucking with your posts on page four.
And you will be ultimately be dragging a wagon-load of the most damaging shit you've ever imagined." - bill brasky

is the only thing I've felt like reporting to anyone in over 5 years here.  That was absolutely unacceptable with no explanation required.  I will not have it on the FTL BBS if I can help it.

and no please.... forgive ME for trying to make peace and let bygones be bygones.  I hope this frees you and Shaw up to be the highly entertaining and insightful posters you once were.

I really didn't want to gloat publicly.  I really didn't expect you to make my PMs public, but since you did.....   ahh fuck it.  I love you Bill Brasky.  I want nothing but the best for you and yours.

Here's my plan for that.  unceremonious moderating.  If you wanna complain about a banning, I'll post the quote, the ToS it violates and admit that you might be right and I hated doing it.  It's the grandstanding that always brought you heat from me before.  I'm not trying to give my life to the FTL BBS (SWTOR is released Dec. 20th) if someone is inciting violence I might try to edit and warn but if they require too much time away from Coruscant I'll ban, and I'll hate it, and I'll go back to killing Jedis.

  LIFE'S LAWS


  There are laws in life that don't make sense regarding how they could
possibly work, but they do. You will discover these laws one way or the other,
but the sooner in your life you know and act on them, the better it will be
for you.

  You will eventually find out that life is both perfect and neutral.  Which
means that if anything is not going great in your life, it is not life's
fault.  And being neutral, you will reap what you sow.

  There is nothing that you have to "believe in" for life's immutable laws to
work.  Beliefs are malleable, the mind leading the mind, the blind leading the
blind.  You can believe in any name for God or in no God, a "life field" or
random evolution, magic or an inherent wisdom in nature.  You can "believe in"
Buddha, Jesus, Mohammed, angels, nature spirts, anything else or nothing.
Life doesn't care what you believe in or don't believe in, your life will
still happen.  Until you receive The Gift, what is important is what you do.

  If you follow these life laws and win the grand prize of life, The Gift, you
won't "believe in" anything any more.  You will KNOW, and knowing will set you
free.  Don't overthink this right now. It may not sound like much to you right
now, but KNOWing is everything you are inwardly seeking.  Even if you
adamantly affirm a strong belief now, you will not rest until you Know.

   These life laws are to help you do the right things and not do the wrong
things before you fully understand how life "works" and why these laws are
laws and not "guidelines", "suggestions", "helpful hints" or "commandments".
There's a good reason for each one of them, even if you don't see why now.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  First thing every morning, give thanks for something. It doesn't matter what
it is, but the thanks must be sincere.  Give thanks all through the day as you
see fit.  The more you look, the more you'll see to be thankful for.  The more
thanks you give, the better your life will get.

  After your morning hygiene routine and before breakfast, retreat into your
morning quiet time.  Without fail.  You will inwardly know what to do.

  A good way to quiet a restless mind is to run through all the things you are
thankful for until your awareness switches from self-fulness to quiet joy,
"presence", awareness.  You can ask of life, or your can just trust life. You
will inwardly know what to ask of life, which can be silent or spoken. If you
ask sincerely with feeling and love, you will receive.   After asking, trust.
If you choose to trust life in all things, the Christian passages "Thy will be
done" and "Here am I, send me" embody that way. Or just "Let me know the
truth".  At the close of quiet time, give thanks to Life.

  You do not have to "run" your life.  Your life will happen in the best way
for you if you will trust it to and then let it.  Just be open and aware. Give
thanks for all the good people in your life, the good choices you have made so
far and the good still to be drawn to you. Do not dwell on any mistakes. Know
that everything will work out best for you and for all those in your life
simultaneously.  Everyone wins, no one loses.

  Do the right thing always.  No excuses.  Even if you don't feel like it at
first. You'll know why later. It's all about winning life's grand prize, The
Gift, which will happen when the time for it is right in your life.

  Whenever you do do the right thing, do not pat yourself on the back. If you
see anyone not doing the right thing, do not think any less of them or think
you are better than they are.  After you win the grand prize, you'll know why
this perspective is appropriate.

  Everyone you meet you meet for a reason. Everything in your life comes into
your life for a reason. Every opportunity is in your life for a reason.  More
and more good will flow into your life as if by magic.  More things than you
even thought to ask for.

  Find the good in everyone you know and in everyone you meet. And yes, there
is good in everyone!  Treat everyone with respect and dignity.

  Never hold a grudge against anyone.  Never stay mad at anyone.  Never stay
hurt by anyone.  This only hurts you, and a hurt you will draw to you events
that you do not want.  For your own good, forgive.  If forgiving is difficult,
take it to quiet time.  One fine day it will just happen.

  Don't spend every dime you earn.  Saving is the only way you will learn the
difference between "I want" and "I need".  And once you learn this, you will
never, ever be without for the rest of your life.

  Give to others who are less fortunate, no matter how little you have to
give.  There is a very good reason for this, which you can only discover after
you do it. Give anonymously whenever possible.  Your life will become so full
with so little that you won't believe how little you really and truly need.

  Never buy anything the first time that you see it.  No matter how much you
may think you want it at the time.

  Listen more than you talk.  Remember what you hear.

  Eat only when you are hungry.  When eating, do not be doing anything else.
Stop eating before you feel full.  Eat wholesome and fresh, close to the
source.  Eat a wide variety, even if you don't like something.  Ignore fads.

  Everything that can be enjoyed can also be abused. Whether you are a master
or a slave to a substance is your doing.  The substance is neutral.  Don't
blame the substance for you craving it.  Even some legal substances are best
left alone, and you will know which ones they are when the time comes.

  Eventually you will not have to use any substances, legal or illegal, to
enhance mood.  You'll be in the most wonderful mood imaginable all the time.
But if you do use mood substances, know the "right way" to use them. If you
don't use substances but know others who do, do not think less of them for
what they do.  They are them, you are you.

  There is no "right way" to smoke, which should tell you something. If you
do smoke and want to quit, quit.  Now is a good time. If it's difficult, take
it to quiet time.  Don't "just finish this last one".   Put it out in the
ashtray right now.  Don't "just finish this last pack".  Keep all three as
a trophy to your having done the right thing.  Write the date on the ashtray.

  There is a "right way" to drink, if you choose to.  Drink slowly.  Wait
between drinks.  Know (and stick to) your limit.  Even if it's half of one
drink.  Enjoy everything in moderation.  If you feel you should quit, quit.

  Illegal substances are illegal for a good reason. They are addictive.  And
addiction changes every priority in your life. You do not want that.  If you
are becoming addicted, take it to quiet time. If you need help, get it.  Life
uses everybody for the benefit of everyone.

  Life itself will show that you don't need mood substances.  Don't think any
less of people who do use them.  Don't think you are better than they are.
Give thanks to Life for your not craving substances, not to yourself.

  Prescription drugs are prescribed by a doctor for a good reason.  They
change your body chemistry.  Your body will set its chemistry properly if you
will let it by doing the right things.  If something doesn't seem quite right
with your health, take it to quiet time.  If anything seems to be getting out
of hand, don't hesitate to see a professional.   Life uses everyone and
everything for the benefit of everyone.

  You don't need to date everyone you can in the hope that one of them might
turn out to be The Right One.  If you search too hard, you will surely end up
with The Wrong One.  Life will bring you and The Right One together.  And you
will know who it is when you two meet.  But be aware that the one person who
you love more than anyone else will have some things about them that you
absolutely hate.  And they will make the same discovery about you.

  Throw away as little as possible.  Reuse as much as possible.  Conserve as
much as possible. Maintain your things in good condition so they last.  Don't
think any less of those who don't. Give thanks to Life for all that you have,
not to yourself. When you no longer need or want something, give it to someone
who can use it.

  Give thanks for every door that opens. Take every job that is an open door.
Learn as much as you can from every job.  Do the best that you can in every
job.  No job is too menial.  Every opportunity that presents itself in your
life is there for a reason. Even volunteer work. Give thanks for your ability
to contribute to Life.

  You are a very important part of life, but just one part.  All of the other
parts of the whole do not have to be perfect for your life to be perfect. You
can even do stupid things and life will still work out beautifully for you.
There is no single path for your life which if you get off of, you are doomed
from then on. No missing the boat.  Life is a self-healing clockwork. Drop it
and break a few parts and it will fix itself, start running again and never
miss a beat.  Don't feel ashamed of yourself for dumb mistakes.  Life doesn't
hold grudges, so don't you do it, either.  Against anyone else or self-pity.

  When one fine day you chance to win Life's grand prize, The Gift, do not
let it go to your head.  Give all the thanks to Life.  You can bask in the
glow of The Gift for as long as the glow lasts.  But soon you will know that
The Gift was not the goal but rather a door.  Now you are ready to go through
that door.  The Gift was just that, a free prize.  Now you must become still.
While this may sound simple, it is actually not easy at all.  But it is
essential that it be done.  When you are still, which is also called being
centered, you silence the mind.  When all mind chatter is silenced, you will
perceive glimpses of the highest reality, which lies beyond mind and thought.
You will finally be home.  But this is nothing permanent. So you will want to
return home daily.  Little by little you will be more and more in your home,
which is heaven.  Where love is God, and not the other way around!

Orson Welles did it in 1938.  Bitches can't stand a little heat, oh no, Brasky made a post! 

You still can't get it through your head, words are powerful.  Everybody can use them and say whatever they want, except me?  Thats bullshit pal.

Show me where I actually fucked with anyone. 

I'll give you a hint - Hellbilly, when he changed his name to every offensive word he could muster in his drunken foggy brain.  Which was a direct call-out, so I threw him in the cellar until he wised up.  Then he changed his name to Aunt Bee, and I let him back out again.
