I don't know the details of the story between you and mojo safe that at some point mojo snapped, but it took me quite some self control not to burst at the seams either considering the rather weird leeway SWST was given (despite warnings). It was really odd, since he was getting banned and then returned and instead of seeing his new infractions just making his case worse, it just seemed to be a total reboot or something, and encouraging him to do what he does best.
Now, what I mean is that you said that in light of obvious trolling...
So we're dealing with SWST, it's just going to be a while. In the mean time, ignore him, or just stand aside and don't let him take you down with him. In that respect, SWST is a far more effective and clever troll than you'll ever be.
Unless JMS is totally clueless, he does know SWST and his methods, so by replying to SWST, he knew he was being trolled, and not only tolerated that, but gave a reason for SWST to continue.
I think no one will judge JMS negatively for being, in this particular exceptional case, severe and intransigent towards SWST's misbehavior.
Oh sure, we'll lose a bit of activity, but most of it has been about most of the board reacting to SWST like a body reacts to an intruding organism. JMS' soft management here has turned a small and benign virus into something like AIDS or Ebola.
The rules of the board are clearly cleaved for people who do respect some fundamental in regards to proper and fair debate. This netiquette is completely busted by SWST.
Like in normal life, there's the normal law when everything goes right, and then there's the martial law, which is temporary. And then there's rendition and torture. Just kidding.
While there's no rule against obstinacy, there are against dishonest methods and ignorance of relevant posts, and I think it's clear that we've reached a certain point where a specialized kind of weapon needs to be drawn.
In the meantime, I will repost my report. >:[
- rebooted the Dankayo debate in the ICS thread.
- ignored JMS' former post on page 14 about the base built next to a volcano. JMS had cited a post of mine back then. SWST had JMS totally repeat his position despite the fact that in his older post, he had already been replying to SWST.
- doesn't substantiate most of his points at all.
- doesn't read posts (or is really dumb).
- admitted that he simply didn't read the 12 first pages of the BDZ thread (despite the fact that mods were fusing threads into the BDZ before page 12).
- keeps baiting me with red herrings about Star Trek in threads which are purely Star Wars centric. I told him to stop that many times, and he continues to do so.
Seriously, if that shit keeps going on, I'll flame mods so hard that he'll have no choice but to permaban me instead.
In the end, Mojo's mojo is absolutely negligible in light of the crap SWST pulls.
What? Someone is afraid of what SDNers may think one day? I'd tell you, if they read this, they're probably already laughing their asses off.
SWST is no Kane Starkiller. KS met fierce opposition, but he was debating honestly enough. He just left because he realized his positions would just never win here (surely, the opposition here is nothing like the watered down opinions of SBC or the non-existent posturing of SDN's so called Trekkies).
SWST doesn't care about the positions of other people.
That's no debate. It's a farce, garbage.
And I saw no insults in Mike's reply to you, only a comment that SWST trolls better than you do...
Proof: You've been banned a few times without being saved by JMS, while he was saved... ;)
... I wouldn't call that a good thing. I'd rather keep Mojo than SWST.
As for the frustration, isn't this system a discussion board and a place to exchange opinions?
Ignoring SWST is fine and all --just as much as it's fine to ask people to ignore a disturbing dude sitting in the same small room and being a thousand times more obnoxious than the annoying orange
you know-- but does that mean we just have to look elsewhere while a guy is openly trolling the whole place?
I was OK for ignoring him, but you guys literally gave him ammo and allowed him to restart this whole mess.
Now, asking members to ignore SWST is fine since we're hardly that cold blooded and we know it would cut him the attention he craves for, but feeding him at the same time doesn't strike me as particularly logical.
Either we all ignore him or we don't, don't you think?
Oh well, anyway, I will not bother. I thought that building the equivalent of a wall around SWST was the board's rather unique way of dealing with such issues, but obviously not all people are .
In the absolute, the "fool" related warning was right.
I'll resume the process of ignoring SWST then.
That said, if I ignore him, you mods will have to do the job you're supposed to do and read his posts (when he will obviously feel entitled to attack my opinions) and see what's wrong with them. Don't expect me to do your
You can't have your cake and eat it too after all.
