I just want to personally thank Mr. Beer for taking a whiz all over my French rioting thread (aka "Paris in Flames"). I don't understand the moderation on this board, especially when the thread ends with someone being called a "British retard".
Perhaps it shows a lack of discretion on the part of both Mr. Beer and the operators of this site themselves. Or, as they are referred to above the "Core 9 Team". At what point does Mr. Scoble realize these verbal attacks solve nothing? At what point does Mr. Torre realize that the banning of a user such as Orbit86 (which came quickly), is in sharp contrast to a user such as Mr. Beer, who is allowed to go on and on and on? Does somebody need to root through the Channel 9 search engine and accumulate evidence of his abuses?
If being a moderator only leads to the ability to "lock threads", it is pretty useless in the case of Mr. Beer. For others, they grasp the lesson of having their threads "locked".
Orbit86 was banned for attacking users. Beer 28, as opinionated and sophomoric as he seems to be, does not attack Niners. I don't agree with much of what he says. Does this mean I should ban him? Of course not. It would be nice to see less hi-jacked threads. It's just that this type of behavior does not require banning.
Attacking users, posting offensive material, threatening users, these will always get you banned.
We do not like to ban Niners.
