I've been permabanned here for a good 12 months now 12 months of endless isolation but also 12 months to reflect upon the actions of mine that got me kicked off of here, most of where my anger issues stem from could be summarized in the above comic strip and I not only sought help for that since getting kicked off but also confronted the actual people who hurt me all those years ago instead of taking it out on you guys, a lot has happened over these last 12 months that got me to look at things in a different way, for starters I've been watching a lot of Hayao Miyazaki films and compared them to the show "Doug" and came to realize that Hayao Miyazaki gives a more acurate portrayal of how people interact with one another and that's who's characters I should have been paying attention to and emulating all that time and shall do so starting now, another thing that I should have been doing is thinking about how my actions would effect the people around me before I actually do it and I never did due to having the mindset at the time that "I should be allowed to be myself", I also tended to go ape s**t the moment someone misinterpreted me or called me names when what I should have been doing was being more patient with the people misinterpreting me and ignoring the people trolling me which I will do for now on.

lost pony, stop.

You may not realize you're doing it but you're still being manipulative.

This pretentious "let's talk about your anger" lecture is useless, and you're STILL using Gundam to try to manipulate me.

Guess fucking what:

Setsuna does not forgive the people who hurt him. No one asks him to look at Ribbons or Ali and say "Yeah, I forgive you for all the pain you put me through."

All you're doing is making me hate you. I cannot fathom why you think, after I called you out about being manipulative and shitty, that you would continue to do this.

Stop. Trying. To. Get. Me. To. Forgive. Him.

This is a huge mess.  I'd tell you to drop it, but I'm about to lock the thread anyway just in case.

Staff has seen the appeal, we can discuss it internally without this thread getting any more out of hand.  Appeals are meant to be done via email anyway, not threads.

lp... come now. never is there a need to get quite so condescending like that in an off-topic conversation that should, in the first place, be private.

the team has seen the appeal, and has been deliberating.

lp, your tone in this thread is, frankly, mystifying... and i'm going to ask you ... try not to go off with such personal matters unrelated to the thread topic here in /canterlot/.

Standards here, you will find, are much, much stricter than on /pony/.

Okay, this is hack, but it solves the problem: At the beginning of each
div.body
, insert the following:


   <div style="font-size: 1px">
     <span style="display:inline-block; min-width:250px;"></span>
   </div>


and at the end of each
div.body
, insert this:


   <div style="font-size: 1px">
     <span style="display:inline-block; min-width:230px;"></span>
     <span style="display:inline-block; min-width:230px;"></span>
     <span style="display:inline-block; min-width:230px;"></span>
   </div>


This will force the text below the image when there's not at least 250px of space to the right of the image.  The div of three spans at the end is needed to avoid bad things happening especially with embedded YouTube videos.

Moony you promised Manley and myself a solid one-week ban if we squabbled again after the 12 hour ban.

In the Avengers movie thread he gaybashed me remorselessly for commenting that my gf and i both found a character to be hot in the middle of my post, told me to take the gay elsewhere n got into a long repetitive creepy obsession about how my gay makes him uncomfortable.  He also claims he's fine with gay "because he has gay friends" but then admits he finds my gay uncomfortable because he's been hit on by a gay person once and because he feels that was an attempt to "convert him to gay".  Which to me says that he's uncomfortable with me because, i guess he feels i want to have sex with him?!  Its disgustingly offensive to me and while i took several multiple-hour long breaks each time i looked back in i found the discussion going on and on with my name being discussed constantly.

I lost my cool a bit and reacted, yes.  I also had a really dark deconstructive mood that significantly negatively impacted me irl.

Zeke rightly called us both on squabbling like children.  It's an experience that brought me back to the worst moments of my childhood, and manley stated that he did nothing wrong.

My favorite tidbit is that he's tried not to talk to me but i won't stop, when in fact my original reply was to ukp and not even to Manley at all.  He contacted me first to tell me to take my "gay" elsewhere such as seeking naked pics of the character's actor (eew).  Unless perhaps i'm not allowed to discuss the op with other posters just because he started the thread, but thats not the way it's supposed to work.

Theres a lot of talk about the manley problem and the difficulty in knowing what to do about it but this makes no sense to me.  He's a chronic breaker of the basic rules and ignores all mod input that he's doing so.  Hes being rewarded by getting away with this time after time after time so it's no wonder this problem won't go away.

Lack of proper response to his violation of the rules is not only allowing disruption to this site and the wellbeing of its members, it is directly hurting Manley in real life by conditioning bad behavior that could harm his rl relationships or even get him beat up or killed.

My behavior was not golden either.

Can you please add a feature to filter out users based on name?  (I'm repeating Lost Pony's request in this thread: http://ponyville.us/pony/res/740180.html#740554)

This can be accomplished by executing some code (like the following snippet) on pageload and on thread auto-update.  (Oh, and some UI would be nice, but not essential, since people can just manually set localStorage.filtered_usernames at the debug console.)

if ((localStorage.filtered_usernames || "").trim()) {
 var filtered_user_regex = RegExp(localStorage.filtered_usernames);
 $(".name").filter(function(i,e) {
   return filtered_user_regex.test(e.textContent);
 }).closest("div.reply").css("display", "none");

I wonder, if someone shat in one of the rooms of your house, would you just pretend the shit and the shitter wasn't there? No, you'd get that shit cleaned and do something punitive to the shitter. Of course as you've said, the moderation here has historically ignored the shitter (although to inject a bit of nuance, they have believed it wasn't shit but maybe something less offensive such as tracking in mud from outside) but shuffling it under the rug and pretending that nobody is shitting in your house is just a slightly less bad solution than ignoring it.

To set something straight, I am not saying that ponymotes is going to make everyone nice to each other and all the negativity is going to go away. All I meant by it being a positive is that the users that like it get something fun out of it and the users such as yourself, tracer, and I can either hide it through the options menu or just ignore it. That is a net benefit to the site. Also, don't make a habit of talking about me in the third person (in the same thread I'm posting no less) when you are gonna talk shit about me or the work I do. You can say it to me directly, thanks.

As for blocking people being a negative? Yes, it undoubtedly is. Everyone here has something of value to be said and shared and we are going to be less if we cut all ties with the people we have an issue with. Through better moderation (and yes, I understand your issues with the moderation. I am in near complete agreement. But I'd rather fix the moderation issue directly instead of code the users a way to bypass the problems with the moderation), we can address the negativity without having to go as far as wiping each other off the site. To make my point, Manley has said some stupid shit about trans and gay people, would you have been better off if you decided to just hide his existence the moment he said a stupid thing? I'm guessing not.

And that leads into my next point, that just because I am against filtering users doesn't mean I think nothing should be done. We need stricter enforcement of the rules we have and more specific rules for when someone is not exactly 'rude' or 'unkind' but is still causing people to be upset. That is where Manley falls right now and we need to come up with a concrete rule to address it. I am trying to push that idea witPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Unfortunately the reason he was permabanned was a sad one.

He was actually trying to be sympathetic at the time but because of the way his emotional state is, it caused him to be defensive after he fumbled his attempt at compassion.

Essentially what happened was that Sherlock was having issues with his transition due to setbacks. I commented on it, because I can relate to those problems.

Steam responded to me and his INTENTION was to say "Yeah, it's rough when people don't understand you, I've had similar issues because of my disability." But it came out as him saying that his situation was just as rough as what Sherlock was going through, making it seem like he was trivializing the situation.

Obviously, people got upset at this so he responded by saying, 'I knew you guys would give me shit which is why I spoke to Toybox instead.' this of course didn't help matters at allbecause now it looked like he was kicking Sherlock when he was down.

To compound matters Steam only has a vague idea what transexualism is, and his only encounter with it was me. So it would not surprise me at all if he assumed all transsexuals were MtF. So in an attempt to be 'helpful' he 'corrected' someone that called Sherlock a man, probably not understanding that Sherlock is trying to transition from female to male instead of the other way around. Because of this, it looked like he was insulting Sherlock even more. By this point everybody was raging at Steam and from his point of view all he was trying to do was be sympathetic, so now he's angry because from his perspective 'he didn't do anything wrong'.

>i don't want Steam Twist to have to suffer unnecessarily, either. but i do not know how to bring him back in, without trouble unfolding, or him feeling hurt when other users do not understand how he thinks or acts.

I don't think there is actually that much of a misunderstanding about how or why he thinks or acts the way that he does. Sure some people will just chalk it up to autism, but I think plenty of us realize that his problem is simply that he doesn't want to accept the things he could do that actually would let him come back, sometimes outright stating that he wont do what others suggest.

>Discussing the political situation in Haiti is an acceptable subject of conversation. Involving "average IQ" of Haitians and referencing the "sh*thole" controversy, however, is bound to cause an effect of goading or baiting.
Why would discussing the average IQ of Haitians have the effect of baiting?  It seems to me that it would be very relevant to the discussion.  In fact, I'd go so far as to say that a discussion of Haiti's problems would be majorly incomplete without it.

The subject of whether genetically modified food is safe or not is not comparable in controversy to the political situation in the so-called "sh*thole" Haiti, relative to the alleged average IQ of its populace.

Note the example provided in the Proposition Document, as to the difference between what is political drama, and what is not.

Politically Dramatic content is content which presents a weighted political perspective that contains a controversial or inflammatory perspective, such that it will have the effect of goading users into participating in a toxic posting environment.

Thus, when you look at your Genetically Modified Food OP, ask yourself a few simple questions:

Am I about to make a political thread?

Is that political thread weighted with political perspectives that skew heavily to one side of an argument?

Would that discussion topic itself generally be considered a controversial topic to discuss as to the reasonable, general public?

If it is not out of line to comment on the subject of the thread being discussed, I found it illuminating when I checked and confirmed that not only is the OP's stated IQ actually what is considered correct, but that the world's impoverished areas have similarly deficient intelligence.  While I suspect that the test itself may be biased in some way to arrive at those results, I find it at least probable that the deficiency in the numbers has to do with nutrition and education and I am absolutely astounded at just how drastic the end result actually is.

I find that to be most eye-opening and while I agree that dismissing Haiti as a "shithole" may be inflammatory, the picture in the OP definitely presents a strong example that such a statement might be accurate.

What a messed up place to be born into, and if discussion can be civilized and in some way improve awareness that we ponies may be able to convert into some kind of social change for such people, I think it could be worth the cost of discussion and I encourage the OP to consider carefully what has been stated by staff and perhaps try again with a more carefully crafted attempt, perhaps expanding the topic to the rest of the world too and perhaps some kind of information on what sort of action we might participate in that can actually help the situation, such that we might better understand what even can be done and how.

It's just awful and I think such topics presented from a perspective of philanthropy benefits us all.

Then again, it's not my place to tell people what to do so I might take a whack at it myself and see if I can stay out of trouble while doing so.

The way it was worded seems rather close to the way people on less scrupulous parts of the internet segue into suggestions that the population should be "cleansed" in some fashion. I don't think bringing IQ into the discussion is the problem intrinsically (barring its debatable veracity as a means of measuring intelligence), but it's a topic that is somewhat taboo for good reason -- 95 times out of 100, it's used "for evil", for lack of a better way of putting it.

That's not to say it can't be discussed constructively -- lostpony's thread is a good example.

To be honest, I didn't realize that I was still on the staff list after leaving when I first started gender transition. I'm surprised to find my name still there.

I'm happy to consult on stuff, but I don't expect to be active again anytime soon. I apologize if I gave the impression that I would be.
