    That was thanks to ILTST9. If that is still showing on your record PM Dfg or Hellish to purge them clean. He might have missed a few when 30 other victims fell to his behavior.

    A mod went crazy. I've heard both muffins and ILTST9 considered culprit, and I dunno.

    It was only ILTST9. Basically ILTST9 was a test dummy for the staff courtesy of Dfg lol :).

    That's a bold faced lie on Dfg's part to cover up for the fact he made somebody a mod who immediately went on a rampage. I didn't post anything blatantly anti-totse.info before I was made a mod. He had no way of indicating my growing dislike for this forum besides my decrease in activity. I was made a moderator here because I contributed my fair share (A couple of my threads are stickies, after all). It was not a test.

    I'm still waiting for your side of the story regarding Friday and why you felt compelled to do a little out burst. I didn't think that was your style.

    Actually no, I modded someone else in BI and then i saw your post about Totse being shit etc. So, I removed him and then modded you. Based on your contributions you should get a mod job but I think you didn't post in the mod thead.

    So, in any case. You were angry about Totse and I wanted to see what happens. Hence, I didn't send you a PM and modded you without asking. I normally don't do that unless the user asked for it first.

    Did I know you would go on some rampage?
    Well, it was 50/50 from me. You would either come to your sense and start posting or you would request to be demodded. But really, being a dick and banning your fellow users kind of singles you out and shows your character in general.

    Anyway, if what you did was unexpected by me, you wouldn't be using this account right now. I unbanned you myself :).

    To make damn sure I'd be demoded from this sinking ship ASAP.

    I requested to be made a moderator of the music forum. Instead some moron that stickied a bunch of threads that had no place being a sticky until a bunch of people complained about it got the job.

    Most people interpreted what I said as sarcasm. I hadn't quite made my heel turn on here yet.

    If I REALLY wanted to fuck this place over I could've deleted every thread in the Bad Ideas forum with a couple of clicks and you would have had to upload a back up. Even with the back up posts made between when the threads get deleted and the time the back up is uploaded get deleted. You lose posts either way. I decided to be a nice guy though and just ban as many people as I could knowing they'd all be unbanned within a couple of hours.
    Anyway, if what you did was unexpected by me, you wouldn't be using this account right now. I unbanned you myself .
    Nah in any case this would just end in the moderator being demoded. No permanent damage was done. You know as well as I do that banning me would be pointless anyway when I could just make a new account under a proxy server and you'd never know it's me. By keeping me on this account you'd be able to keep better tabs of a certain troublesome user that went on a rampage with his mod powers. ;)

    I gotta say ILTST is tellin the truth here. We were bullshitting on msn and I mentioned how I was demoded from BI , then we saw Paco get modded, then Paco got demodded. and then ILTST was modded. Upon being modded ILTST made a thread in M&A requesting to be demodded. (i would copy pasta the thread) In that thread several members said he couldnt quit.( Quotes like blood in blood out and stuff like that were used) ILTST then said shit man they wont demod me so I'll just demod myself, and thats why he did what he did.

    ILTST is a decent dude whos got a busy life. He runs a website with me, has a blog and is admin on a site too. He Took being a mod serious and didnt want to be a shit mod. when faced with the negativity in his thread requesting to be demodded he just got an idea to do it on his own.

    I call total bullshit on Dfg's MASTA PLAN. Its laughable man if you wanted to test things you could just use your sock puppet account Defragmentsunleashed or whatever it is you could of modded it did retarded shit and then tried to find the course of action.

    Imma just leave that there and lets the chips fall, power can corrupt

    Thanks for explaning the reason why you're mad at me. Just because I removed you from BI and modded Paco and then modded ILIST9 it doesn't mean that I was trying to be a dick.

    It only means that BI needs an active contributor. I was reworking the forums and changing mods all over the place. I added new mods and removed some old mods. Does it mean that will keep them removed forever or will not mod them again, NO. It means I want that section to grow and form a leader. BI is a tough cookie, it's a bitch to work on Zoklet and it will be bitch to work on Totse.

    Anyway, if only you would have contacted me via IRC/PM or made a thread about it instantly none of this would have happened. Next time be more open about it.

    Btw I do hope users don't cling to modships. We do have moderator rotation system.

    Dude I aint even mad about the mod thing, the only forum i wanted to mod was gearheads, I was contributing alot to bad ideas at one point and did appreciate the ability to move shit and stuff but i've contributed all the guides i've got man. I'm seriously not pissed about mod shit.

    If I think something sucks or anything I'll make a thread in bitch and moan ( where this now belongs) Such as my anti twitter one.

    I reviewed that thread multiple times looking for any inadequacy and saw none. Any responses were more "joke" related than insulting or poking fun as I am sure only a select few individuals knew the full circumstance and perhaps frustrations ILTST9 was facing. So I can't buy that as a logical excuse to explain the actions taken. Now, when I saw that thread it wasn't long before action started.

    Thread Started asking to be demodded.

    07-31-2010, 02:02 AM


    First action taken by ILTST9 that we have still on record before Hellish purged everyones infracted history.

    07-31-2010, 02:37 AM


    To assume both Dfg or Hellish, the only ones with the powers to make that happen weren't on that time span looks negative against the argument being made here. Also not to demean anyone here, but coming from a military background I am a strong believer in chain-of-command and if there was any respect to be given it should have been handled from the bottom up instead of acting out in a childish manner. I can't buy this argument just because by the time I replied to that thread it already had begun about 5 minutes later. A simple PM to either Hellish or Dfg and leaving never to show up again would have done the job instead of going bananas.

    Could he have done more? Sure can which is why I was against the individual who made a thread a couple weeks ago about the "Need for FUCKING moderators". This is what happens and what COULD have happened in the future. But we aren't playing what could have happened but what DID happen and the way it was handled was inexcusable.

    The way I see it is if you are a worker at a local business and made Assistant Manager and then instead of the Manager not catching wind to your signs of discontent, you act out physically causing damage when you could have just walked out. We wouldn't do it IRL, yet people do it on the Internet because there are no consequences and you have the anonymity.

    ILTST9 is a good guy, he's one of the first people I've had on my IM from back on the beginning of Zoklet which is why I don't understand why he chose that route. I can't say I know the whole details, just what I saw. Doesn't change what I think about him, but I shake my head at the motive because it just seems ridiculous.

    I know, but thanks for clearing that up :). Again, I only demodded you because you posted in Moderator Thread and preferred Gearheads. I wanted you to have free time to contribute as much as possible man.

    On the Twitter issue, I agree its a bitch but we're making progress and new users are joining in. Considering the conditions this place is in, it's a miracle :). AGAIN, whatever happens please voice your complaints openly. I want users to treat admins/mods at the same level. We need accountability :) and your voice enforces it.

    Frustration makes people act differently man. That's really all i can say about that. Best thing I can think is chalk it up to an experience and go from there. I've got other shit on my mind but its best not to disturb sleeping dogs. Imma keep my thoughts to myself. Peace to everyone and do what you can to help the cause
