I can see where he comes from in some perspectives, I feel at one point mods worked towards staff with the motivation of adding some hands to help clean and watch over the site, however over time, your view and prior interests tend to get a bit distorted, the transition from the average poster to a mod or janitor changes those views greatly, as a leisurely reader, you do not have to make decisions on whether a post should be deleted or reasonable for a ban. sympathy was a weakness of mine at one point, over time you tend to grow bitter of the endless repetition of deleting and banning users, the every day shitposter I am sure is at a greater multitude over at 4ch.>He kind of sounds like a faggot, really, like not thinking Habbo Hotel raid was the funniest shit
as a user it was good fun, but by then raids were all to common and to mods having to contain what he calls "a bunch of teenagers with too much time on their hands" I am sure it was another routine of "welp, what kind of motherfuckery is anon# 9,231,567 is trying to sprout up." habbo was a harmless fun raid, the commador raids were fun too. but as staff i am sure it was just another nuisance to clean up.>"The moderators had nothing to do with the 4chan "pranks" (like scientology, habbo, etc), in fact they were supposed to stop them."
only soo much a mod can do when watching in the shadows with only the ability to delete shit, maybe even the occasional sticky, if he was a janitor that is.>"What boards did you moderate and what is the absolute worst thing you had to ban a user for?">"All of them. Some more than others, long before I quit certain boards had pissed me off so badly that I couldn't load them without deleting half the threads and then getting into an argument with other mods about whether they should have been deleted or not. There's a lot of apathy, the only other newish-mod I knew made it all of about a day, the rest seem to be tired of doing it. So trying to take an active stance on cleaning up any board seemed to be a serious uphill battle."
>what exactly does he mean? What flash is he talking about in 12
beats me, but it may be archived in swfchan.>>2326>so please forgive me; all I know is that I utterly despise the new shit from those born roughly around 2000, vid and definition somewhat related
it is something that is unavoidable and taxing if you pay it too much mind to it, the best result is to encourage and influence or better portray the change you want to see, that is if you are involved in any other communities i assume you are
imageboards have a funny way about distributing information to chain react. but as that mod was saying, its an uphill battle. Hang close to your altchans, be sure to make post and keep it alive, 4chan will progressivley get worse, but not enough to give up on it.>/end blogpost
