Have I become some kind of KYM boogeyman? I’ve turned into some kind of Goldstein from 1984. I wouldn’t doubt that I am the most hated person on KYM. Heck, I received karma for saying that people naturally hate me. Heck, I got a fair bit of karma for that post. (What was it? 5 or 6? Something like that) I really don’t know why I’ve acquired all this hate, but I’m noticing a significant bias in the way that the 2 oldest users of KYM are treated, both with the users and the admins. Taryn consistently harassed 7 users for several months. All 7 of us tried to get him banned, because we were sick and tired of him calling us emo, furfag, faggot, there were others. We were teased on and on, too. Heck, with me, he repeatedly tried to convince me to kill myself. I suffer from clinical depression. Great match, right? He made up some false stories about me, too. I remember him being banned from irc eventually. It wasn’t long before he was unbanned. After that, he got worse. That’s when we started reporting him. Guess what happened? Nothing. Brad said he’d do something, he didn’t. Apparently the reason that Taryn wasn’t going to be banned was that bans are only used as a last resort. I’ve experienced first-hand that that is a lie. It was a while before Taryn cooled off, and it’s not like he didn’t stop harassing me. I wasn’t in good mental health, and I wasn’t able to respond well to Taryn. I remember for the time that I had ops, I banned Taryn several times from the channel, and other ops kept unbanning him, and kept telling me not to. They decided to report me, citing abuse. I don’t see how it’s abuse to ban someone for harassment of several users over several months.
On the other hand, there’s me. I don’t go on fascist man-hunts like Taryn. I didn’t go after people over things they liked or their hair or just for kicks or their psychological condition or because they were friends of someone I didn’t like. I did a great service to KYM when 711chan was doing the raids by completely foiling their attempts to phish and hack other users. (By the way gleuch, thanks for your help in making sure that it never can happen again) Though, there is one heinous crime I have committed on this website, and that’s using abstract methods to improve these forums. (Sarcasm) I made several forum games because I thought it would bring more life to the forums and drain out the cancer. Maybe it was a bad plan, but I think I did it with good intentions. I was met with ban threats from a mod, (Note: Banning as a first resort. There’s proof of what Brad said being a lie right there) and a former admin went on a personal headhunt for me, making a boatload of spam attacking my minor flaws that he hated about me.
