I believe in Freedom of Speech. Other than insulting people with heavy duty swearing at them I can't see the problem. If you can't handle an insult on a site like this, you shouldn't be here.

I abhor censorship

How about more equitable and just. Freediver's redneck mates get more latitude than others.

Denizens like Yadda should be banned for being obnoxious hate propagators and propagandists.

How about Ayaan Hirsi Ali? Would you be happy to have her as a member here? You won't be happy until OzPolitic resembles the ABC's Q&A with a stacked panel and a stacked audience all mouthing Leftwing platitudes.

F-ck you!  Cool


Thank you for the kind offer. However I must respectfully decline.

Try Denizen Bobby.

There should be another category with the poll choices:

There should be a vote option for " keep the status quo"


The current status quo is to completely ignore the thread and only appear after some dobber or sissy-pants has a cry-baby fit. Then they can unilaterally rule or ban or whatever with complete disregard, disinterest and ignorance on the context of the thread.

Of course Light should be the first to go for a total complete ban simply because he spams so many threads with massive amounts of garbage, usually the exact some conspiracy nonsense every time.

But no... Mods are ineffective because they are largely never around. At all. Ever.

I've noted on other forums with strict controls, the quality of posts and discussions are greatly improved.

The "more strict" vote has suddenly lept ahead.

I have added a "status quo" option

I suggested this to Freediver ages ago to act as a cess-pit for all the tiresome pillow-fighting that leaves so many threads depleted of any further interest.

So, I guess you voted that the GMods be more strict?

I voted that the mods intercede where someone is obviously mainly interested in baiting and heckling the effortful members of this forum board as an idle amusement to pass away the time.

I voted "Do it differently."  Other than in the most outrageous event which would be obvious, (real names, porn etc) I reckon there ought be public warning first  (with copy sent via PM,) and then a ban if the person persists, with public explanation left (could start a Thread in Relationships for that) as to why and length of ban.

You could also use at least one more GMod to help Setanta who seems to be the only GMod regularly here (Thursday night through to Sunday night.)  None of the others are pulling their weight.



In addition to "real names and porn" Aussie, how about adding your chronic baiting of certain members here with your innuendos and blatant lies to your list of offences? Then, of course, with Aussie, one has to consider what a "real name" is:  Aussie has claimed 4-5 first names as "his" as well as at least two surnames ... Furthermore, Aussie has labelled art, in a museum, "filth" and "porn." So, whatever you do, don't let Aussie have a say in anything and please do not "start a Thread in Relationships" as it would give him the opportunity to abuse and threaten members even more than he does now.
