Someone in this thread has "Sometimes The Problem Can Be Mistaken For The Solution"
in their signature line.

Evidently, drama is a problem. Drama has occured because people are mistaking "Gossip" for "Helping". You've all been given progressively more info and then asked for more, jumped off the handle, made statements and generally acted weird.

Hows about this for a solution - From now on, why don't people just try and stay out of arguments with the mods about someones banning or infraction or whatever, if they didn't see what happened? Unless the mods decide amongst themselves that all bannings are going to be made public and the posts or chatlogs hosted onsite for the perusal of the many, then the fact is, no explanation is going to be complete enough that people can make objective decisions as to whether someone should or should not have been banned.

And as far as I can tell, it seems the mods aren't going to do that. In fact it seems that because of this thread the mods (or at least some of the mods) are edging closer to simply providing no specific information at all, so as to avoid ****storms instigated by people who don't have the full story.

Now for gods sake, people, this is the internet. I've been banned from forums, IRC channels, all sorts of places for all sorts of reasons. I have never once given a ****, there are always other places to go. If musicbanter is that bad you can't trust the mods, have to bitch, need to complain and bitch and moan and generally make asses of yourselves, by all means, reduce your musicbanter posting like I did and go somewhere the **** else for the most part.

^Exactly^!

Its not like its the first time he's (Dirty) been banned. (I like Dirty also). But I might suggest, as for myself, I totally trust and respect the judgment by all of our current Mods. I don't really see how we could ask for a better Mod team than the one we have now. These ladies and gentlemen are a lot more reluctant than some of other Mods in the past would've been when it comes to banning members. To be completely honest, I dont know of one Mod that has been unfair to anyone here at MB since Ive been here, when these guys & gals decide to retire as a Mod, they put a lot of consideration and effort into making decisions on who will be replacements. We should also understand that MB holds high expectations and a certain amount of "higher Standards" as to say, here at MB. That's why we're # 1.

Now now, you're clearly just trying to kiss ass and play the game for a mod position here.

you don't need to understand the logic. insulting members is something you always do but never understand.

tnx djchameleon but let me correct you, it's never my intention to be trolling even in the slightest manner. some members just view my love to the pop mainstream and unique opinions to be trolling. when a different opinion is posted here that is totally opposite to that viewed by some of the members, they think it's trolling. i just view it as uniqueness of a personal opinion. nothing more nothing less.

agree. though there's this one mod that i really, really hate since the beginning of my stay here, i think some mods are doing the best they can to make this forum as fun as possible. and i can't believe Conan is a mod after all.. hmp! you lied to me. i should have known earlier that when you're name is written in bold in the active user's list right above the shoutbox is an indication you're a mod.

Some people have commented on how dumb this thread is. I'll come right out and say it: I love this thread.

It showcases just how bored most of us really are and how much we love drama. This is a lot of fun. I really do wish we could go back to insulting each others' taste in music. For now this works, I guess.

As for me...I infracted oojay for something I think was totally justified. Was it a direct insult? No, but it sure as hell was a passive one. It really annoys me when people toe the line and then expect there won't be anything done. He obviously wasn't banned and now hopefully he knows that **** won't fly, so was it really that big a deal that I did it?

does anyone else think that the tie of this thread sounds like the title of a children's book? Yes, how ironic.
