Temp bans for Ted and Shep

Post by AdmiralKanos » 2003-02-09 09:05pm

OK, after the events of this weekend, it has become clear to me that at least two persons are bound and determined to be shit-disturbers lately. Ted and MkSheppard have been deliberately goading people, inciting hostilities, and otherwise disrupting the board. Neither seems to have any agenda lately other than to annoy people and get them up in arms.

However, at the same time, I recognize that both of them can and have behaved better in the past. They do not deserve permanent bans. However, a "cooling off" period might be a good idea, as suggested by quite a few people. So, this board will be free of Ted and Shep for a week.

Keep in mind that if they have a problem, they could probably try to get back in with a new account, but for their own good (and I hope they're reading this), they should both try to cool down themselves.

I see no result coming from either.

Good, they both knew what they were doing and paid the price.

Yes, this has been a stranger than usual weekend. Well not really, they just acted the way they normally do, just more of it.

I honestly have no idea what the fuck problem Ted and Shep have with New York. I've only visited there only once, and it certainly wasn't the shithole that its detractors make it out to be.

Shep, I think, it's because he's from Maryland, and everyone I've met from Maryland has either hated New York, been an unhinged loon, a Confederate, or dead. In Shep's case, probably 'all of the above'.

Ted just hates New York because he's a knee-jerk anti-American who's bias borders on some sort of racism.

Sometimes, it seems like everything Ted knows about people in the US comes from late-night sitcom reruns. His stereotyping is ludicrous sometimes.

Me either, but I think it's most likely jealousy. I know this sounds really egotistical and arrogant, but frankly I think anyone that "hates" New York without saying why is just jealous. Just like you said, there is nothing seriously wrong with New York. This is what leads me to the conclusion that it's just jealousy. The thing I don't like is how the city is run, but a lot of cities are like that. It's one of the biggest, most populous, most wealthy cities in the world. And they hate it. Hmm....why not hate Hong Kong or Seattle or San Francisco or Tokyo or Los Angeles or Mexico City or Chicago or any other city? Because New York gets the most attention. It's jealousy.

Shep is frustrated because he's a hard-right conservative in one of the most liberal states in the Union (and frankly, he's got issues about Maryland even being IN the Union, but that's for another time). New York represents everything Shep hates about the East Coast liberal elite that have, in his mind, run Maryland into the ground. A lot of southerners feel the same way about the city--it's the heart of Yankeeland and the diametric opposite of the genteel southern ideal.

Ideed, and agreed.
They say, "the tree of liberty must be watered with the blood of tyrants and patriots." I suppose it never occurred to them that they are the tyrants, not the patriots.

But as far as board culture in general, I do think that young male overaggression is a contributing factor to the general atmosphere of hostility. It's not SOS and the Mess throwing hand grenades all over the forum- Red

Amazing. Just being either 1. gay or 2. from New York is enough to piss him off. I'm shocked. No, really.

Alright, alright, so I'm not surprised.

And heaven forbid you're a gay guy FROM New York.

OK, that's my last bash for this thread.

LOL I bet seeing the gay parade in New York City is enough to give him a heart attack. :lol:

Alright, now you are bashing Shep without giving him a chance to retaliate. That is somewhat cowardly, throwing punches while someone can't defend themselves.

Plus, RedImperator is right. Most southerners (including myself) don't really care too much for New York because it is the exact opposite of us. Just the same as they think of all southerners as illiterate, uncultured, hicks.

You know, I don't agree with some American policies and some of the things they've done, but to hate a country and its entire population for this is ludicrous. To bash the people of a nation because "they elected Bush" or that "Clinton had sex and lied" and other such stupid issues and then hold a rabid hatred for them is just stupid. It sounds like it's a crime to be American.

I've spent almost four years living in America, and you know what? It's a great country full of good people, it's a little bit different from Canada but I felt right at home there. I've been to New York among other places and I loved every minute of it.

I've lived in and been to more places than most people will in a lifetime, and everywhere I've gone there's been one constant, good people. Whether it be in small town Nova Scotia or Ontario, Quebec, Toronto, Ottawa, Kuwait, Nepal, Philippines, Princeton, Trenton, New York, and Boston among other places, I've always found that I'm surrounded by good hearted people. People are less different than you think they are, and it really is a small world.

I missed most of what got them temp banned this weekend, but I saw how Ted was inconsiderate to Zaia. Hopefully they will calm down and be able to return.

You're talking about someone who tried shooting a man in the back. He's never shown any problem with attacking people verbally or physically who can't defend themselves. This doesn't justify other people's behavior, but it does show the irony of the situation.

Ahem. The only people that cannot defend themselves are Shep and Ted. Nothing is stopping anyone else from posting when one thier 'views' came into play. So, there is no irony here. Either way. I'm sure they can still read the boards and will be reading this regardless.
