Here's what agold wrote: SOOO horribly offensive.. i know.

We should have a separate forum for folks looking at schools outside the top 20. This would be a good kick-off thread for that. Maybe cue some emo or death metal music in the background while we're at it.

Yes. Instead of guides on how to write perfect essays and ace your interviews, we could have guides on how to most efficiently wash the car of your M7 graduate boss and how to signify that you're "working hard".

egy,

I guess some people are really sensitive. I'll refrain from trying to be funny.

I don't think this is a good idea. This has already gone way farther than it ever should have. As I said on one of my posts in the other thread where this began, many of agold's posts are very good.

I was wrong to ban him. I've apologized to agold and unlocked his username.

I have read loads of post from jallen & agold/terp06, and its really benefitted me.

I personally feel mods should not ban mods. It should be left to the likes of Prae, kry, rhyme, river, pelihu to take that decision.

Having said that, I dont know the context. If you can throw that in the open, may be we all or only the mods can "vote", coz not many (i'm guessing), have seen what agold wrote.



Just what was on my mind as well...... lets do it the democratic way...... Vote.....

I want Mr. J Allen Morris to lose his moderator status. At least for the 1 month period he tried to ban agold. A flagrant foul on his part.

On the one hand I agree....on the other I think that prolonging this thread in the effort to get things set to rights at the risk of additional animosity is not a worth the effort.

Good. There's no place for humor on these boards. From now on, please only be preachy and/or abusive.

The gods have smiled upon me today. Let this be the end of censorship!

I must say that I'm really turned off by this whole incident. Moderators should NOT be allowed to ban other moderators. Censorship should not occur unless it is truly warranted (things like pornography, insults, swearing, etc.)


Welcome back bro....
And try remaining sane......lol :P


It's not easy when people can't take a joke and have more "power" than they deserve.


I agree totally.... Praet, I'm sure you guys can put a check on moderator "hate crimes" like these by putting a sort of stop to mods' power against each other.... afterall, mods are (and should work as) a "team" aren't they???

I might have skipped this, like I mentioned earlier, let the big guys decided. River mentions it was "offensive", "uncalled for" , and I would second with him.

It absolutely doesn't... You're right. What it does mean however, is that you should have banned yourself as well... and not deleted your posts!

egy - i guess you're voting to not move on and you'd rather make things worse? That seems to be the aim of your last post.

As for deleting the posts? What is wrong with deleting a post once you realize it never should have been posted to begin with? Why leave it up there to continue making people made that it was posted?
