I just got an infraction for calling a fellow poster an "idiot".

The reason I went ahead and said it was because I have been called an "idiot" (and much, much worse) hundreds of times, and the people who did it weren't punished at all, so I assumed I'd be fine.


So, I'm wondering, do you all think the word "idiot" is WORSE than telling someone that they are "seriously the World's Biggest Jack Ass" ?

Because Matt called me "seriously the world's biggest jack ass", and continued to make many personal attacks on me, my character, my words and my lifestyle, in this thread

Now, in light of the fact that they made Matt a MOD shortly after that personal attack on a fellow poster...I'm thinking the rules only apply to some people, and that there's a huge double standard at the Hype.


BUT, if Matt received an infraction for his attacks on me, and his name-calling....then, I'll be satisified, and will have to look elsewhere for one of the many times someone else got away with something that I'm not allowed to do here.



So, Matt, did you get an infraction when you called me "seriously the world's biggest jack-ass".


And, thread-wise...am I alone in thinking there are too many double standards at the Hype?
 
I agree, thereare double standards, matt likes no one, even his own mum fears his visits.

cue Matthew dearest now telling me he loves everyone except me and Gary Coleman.
 
why can't we all.......just get along? :csad:
 
Well, I hope they don't take the cowardly way out and close this thread, because I think it's a valid question for public discussion by Hype posters and maybe some great changes can be instituted at the Hype in 2008 making it a way better and more fun and less hypocritical place to visit.
 
Well, I wasn't a moderator at the time, nor was I involved with your infraction, so I have no comment on this.

Although I was once given an infraction by Kel for calling someone a jack ass in the Fantastic Four forum. Maybe a mod just missed it?
 
So? I was put on temporary ban after accidentally posting a pic with a curse in it in a thread that was closed and removed after 5 minutes without warning/being asked to remove it, while at the same time there were multiple people who posted pics w/censored words in multiple threads that were never reprimanded. Point being, the Hype doesn't have to play by your rules of logic!

Well, you can obviously answer the questions, "Did you receive an infraction?"...and..."Do you think you should have, and if not, do you think I should receive one for using the word 'idiot'?"

I dunno, I probably would've just asked both posters (you and I) to cool off and discuss without name calling. Can you please send me a link to where you were infracted and I will tell you my thoughts on that as well?
 
I got an infaction once for posting a picture of a celeb off a website that supposedly had nudity..I never saw any & I visit that site all the time.:dry:
 
you know they say idiot on spongebob :p

Some sites automatically change the pictures to porno when they are hot linked.

Personally i think you have raised a very valid point all too often there seemsto be diffrent rules for diffrent people. Though i doubt it'll be long before it gets closed. Too many 'important' threads relating to the hype get closed, i suppose it's easier to brush such things under thecarpet so to speak.

I'm trying to talk it out TDK. However, you throwing fuel into the first by saying how we always close important threads is only going to anger moderators and create a self fulfilling prophecy. Its all about tone, TDK.

And of course there are different rules for different people. At least thats how I will moderate. If a poster like The Lizard goes on a crazed verbal attack on Asteroid-Man, I am going to give him the benefit of the doubt, infract him, and ask him to cool off, assuming he is just having a bad day or something. Where as if Fran, who has been probated and warned several times for attacking Asteroid-Man so much as makes a snide comment to him, I would consider probation.

I'm sorry I don't know how to make it only show one post, but I said it in post #595, and then explained why I don't think I should be punished for it in post #600.
 
I would assume that whomever you called "idiot" complained,hence the infraction...But thats just an assumption.

Wil,Ive never taken you for one who would care about an infraction.

Ive gotten em,and I deserved them ,..And I regret nothing!
 
1. I like almost everyone on the hype

2. Wilhelm if you got this infraction on the atheism thread what did you expect there are too many Christians on this site any explicitly anti Christian views are punished just as it would for any other religion.

3. although people should not be persecuted for their beliefs the are a number of people on here with bigoted beliefs and although we can't change their beliefs their should be a way to censor it to stop arguments occurring.

4. No I will not add punctuation.

If it looks like im fueling it, or **** stirring thats not what i'm trying to do, you may feel that i go into threads baiting to get a response or **** stir, i dont. Onething i hate about the net, aperson can read something with a tone in there head yet it may not be typed like that, if you get my meaning.:)BTW is Asteriod man back yet?
 
Well, I do acknowledge that I called him the world's biggest jack ass.

I think the problem is that your statement is hard to prove. You have no idea if he is the world's biggest jackass. So it's impact isn't as bad.

If you call someone an idiot, there are plenty of idiots, so it's easier to prove and thus a worse thing to say.
