If people stopped giving a shit, Vazquez could have posted that zombie pony without 6 or 7 people freaking out over it then karma bombing him and then we wouldn’t be having this discussion in the first place.
NC (not cool) content: images, videos, forum posts and comments that should be removed from the site:
-pornography, photographed or illustrated (ex: pubes, sexual fluids, genitalia)
-violent, gore and shock images, censored or uncensored
-unwarranted obscenity (racist, sexist, or homophobic content) (ex: posting “blackface” image in MLP photo)
So you’re saying it’s not violent or not gory.
If you say, “Yes, it’s not violent and gory,” then I would disagree. But I accept that it’s not my call.
If you say, “No, it’s violent and gory,” then there’s really no conversation to be had. Just action.
If you say, "Yes it’s violent and gory, but [insert statement that indicates action will not be taken here], then…well, simply…I’d disagree. I accept that it’s not my call. But I also feel as if I can respectfully disagree.
And yes, I’m OK with bringing this up, because Daniel’s just going to do it again, and this is going to get everyone all a-flutter all again.
Ask Daniel…heck, look at his forum history (what hasn’t been deleted, that is.)
- “Derpy, are you going to post something that will be borderline or outright against the rules?”
Then look at his post above. He already said he’s not sorry about the image or the karma. I don’t care about karma, but I am upset that he decided to take to users like DeadParrot and Stunthead (nothing to do with Scootaloo
Ok, maybe a little,) see their posts, and downvote them indiscriminately after all they’ve contributed to Pony General. Just because a few users didn’t want to say after downvoting him.
Daniel, you don’t have an issue with those users.
You have an issue with James for creating that system.
If it makes you feel better, then just find all of my forum posts and make a point to downvote them in your free-time. Feel free to make a post here saying you did and how upset it made you. I do like my karma record: I’ll admit that. But if it keeps you from doing this again (which you’ve said you’d do again in a similar situation,) then please do take to my karma and just go crazy with it.
But do you think Vazquez isn’t going to do something like this again? Do you think he won’t get downvoted again? Do you think that he won’t respond “in kind” (i.e. “punishing” the “class” for the (actually justified) actions of a few?)
So why would the best action be to just pretend it didn’t happen? Because within the next 3 months:
- Derpy Vazquez will post something users don’t like or will be flat out against the rules.
- Users will respond negatively.
- And Derpy will start calling people cowards and the like for not tolerating his images.
Ignoring it and forgetting it ever happened doesn’t change anything. It just ignores something that you should see to (even if it isn’t an easy issue to deal with. I couldn’t do it in these circumstances myself, but I trust the mods who can. I do recognize that I’m not a moderator, so what I say shouldn’t and doesn’t hold any sway, but I hope that there is logic to it.)
If he hasn’t learned, then that means a couple of things. He has a condition that makes it impossible for him to learn, or he simply doesn’t care ultimately.
Yes had to
He doesn’t care.
I’m surprised and (if I could be frank) disappointed that after all Vazquez has done that he hasn’t just been banned. I’ve always considered him to be a user that does more bad things for the site and community than good after being here for so many years.
I do hold grudges, because it’s silly to me to act as if something hasn’t happened (and it’s likely to happen again.) Why wouldn’t I hold the grudge? Why wouldn’t I remember who someone has repeatedly shown themselves to be?
I wouldn’t miss him. If I may be more direct, then Daniel, I won’t miss you. I don’t miss some other users who have left, and I won’t miss you. I won’t miss your “Verbsy’s”, I won’t miss your images, and I won’t miss your more serious posts when you did post them. I’m not your bro.
I’m a jerk on the whole, even to people I know. It’s not one of my better tendencies, and I’ve (in several cases with you,) held back on saying something like this. But that’s because I’m a cynic. If I don’t have a reason to believe someone is going to change, then my actions will follow that belief.
You won’t cross my mind unless you’re brought up. Personally, I just enjoy KYM and Pony General more when I don’t see you.
Consider how many users I’ve dealt with and tolerated.
…Why would I say all of this, for the first time, about you? After I’ve been so patient with everyone from new users to older ones, why would I actually come out and say it against you?
I don’t want other users to chime in on that sentiment, because I think you are all very nice and kind people. I’m not really sure if you all want to hear this from me. But I needed to get it off my chest.
And I’ll come right out and say it for Daniel’s sake: I accidentally hit the upvote button on your post. I didn’t want to leave the impression that I thought your post was appropriate or that the implications of it were appreciated.
Obligatore (perhaps appropriate) Ponu:
