The reference was to your, Patrick and keiths's constructive dismissal of hotshoe, TSZ's last female contributor. I regret missing that episode till it was too late to salvage.
|"I think of you as the three misogynists" as we'd prefer you replaced with a woman (Lizzie) that is amusing.|
I wouldn't do it for money if the task were thankless. I do it because I enjoy it. Also I'm an internet addict. There is a point at which the enjoyment is outweighed.
|Moderation is a thankless task and like a referee, even when done well someone is upset. You're not paid to do this etc. so this is me understanding those things.|
Not sure it's me who's the drama queen here. I moved a comment that you confirm was directed at phoodoo that contains no other substance to guano, along with a comment by phoodoo, and you flounce. I think that was an over-reaction. but your choice.
|: "That you are impressed with blinking lights, is a surprise to no one." - I am the subject of "blinking lights"|
Rich: "Anyone who things (sic) that the significance of this is simply “blinking lights” probably should have less intellectual hobbies." - If I thought that's all it was I shouldn't be here.
What is wrong with that interpretation? Oh right: It doesn't let Alan clutch his pearls.
It's arguable that it is fairly accurate, perhaps.
|It's also painful that "Anyone who thinKs that the significance of this is simply “blinking lights” probably should have less intellectual hobbies." is true.|
You have to work within the rules. And you are not restricted in either reposting the substance of your comment or appealing to other admins.
|But we'd hide it down the memory hole at TSZ. That's simply regressive.|
I think it is utterly fucking ridiculous but I'm open to persuasion otherwise. Explain.
|You probably don't like the comparison to UD...|
Have you noticed who is doing most of the griping?
|...but half the posts are now shitty apologetics from a very small cast of characters. But you do have 6(!) vibrant threads griping about the shit moderation.|
Well, sure. ID died a long time ago. TSZ is not the only site to be on the wane due to ID's demise. AtBC isn't exactly booming, Pandas Thumb is a shadow of its former self.
|This is partly ID's fault for imploding.|
A site is only as interesting as its contributors. TSZ has a long list of folks who used to post. I doubt it will recover from its heyday and that might happen only were Lizzie to re-engage. I have no indication that might happen.
|TSZ can keep working on how many angels can dance on with a pinhead.|
You don't know what you got till it's gone.
