Actually, yeah, he has said some downright offensive things to people (including devs), and was warned by the mods. These posts were edited to remove the offensive content so you may not have seen it.BigTruck said:From what I've seen, Chad doesn't exactly always have the most... ah... agreeable style of writing. But I've never seen him intentionally be an outright troll.
You don't. But even a blind squirrel finds a nut sometimes (not saying that Chad is a blind squirrel, it is just an expression).sbock said:Even if he does have a point (which I can't see), how do you tolerant such multiple attacks on the mods here?
STOP HIDING YOU COWARD
Agreed, actually. The second post largely reinstated, and edited slightly to remove the reason for their being disappeared in the first place. Not, I hasten to add, by me.Chip said:Having been made aware of the general nature of Chad's deleted posts (if not the specific language used), I think it is even more important that they should not have been completely deleted. Apparently Chad wished to voice his extreme displeasure at the idea of me being promoted to Guru or Mod status. That's exactly the sort of thing that should be open to public comment.
Barely a month would not be sufficient data.BigTruck said:For all my vote is worth, which I'm aware is just slightly less than nothing, Chad does have a point. How much effort would it take to add a "this post was edited by so-and-so" to a message edited by a mod? When you remove parts of a post without saying anything was removed, you can change the posters overall message. A mod could make someone seem to say somehing they never really intended. Also, it would be nice to PM someone when you remove their post, or add a "off-topic/flaming posts removed by so-and-so" when several posts in a topic are removed.
From what I've seen, Chad doesn't exactly always have the most... ah... agreeable style of writing. But I've never seen him intentionally be an outright troll.

What is its advantage compared to non-secret moderation?
Also, please secretly move this thread Misleading, disrespectful sticky to the LOL! Files. Thank you. :lol:
I actually think Chad made the right call on that one, as do most people here, if the comments within the thread are any judge.
Exactly that's the problem here. It's the way he behave and insults mods and other members in this forum.xnopasaranx said:@Chad: By changing your signature and your avatar you are just worsening your case. Just so you know I am not siding with you man, you are behaving like an ill-tempered 12 year old. If you stopped acting like this, your posts would not be edited at all and you wouldn't be ridiculed.
I think it is for him. He's seemed mad and needed to express himself to everyone. He also did have something else in his signature at one point, then I removed it and PM'd him about the change (as it was untruthful). He eventually accepted the change, and then added the "and they can even edit your signature.".sbock said:Exactly that's the problem here.

Just as I said before even if he does have a point it's the completly wrong way of showing it to the others.
Is it to difficult to open a polite thread and try to discuss the way of moderation based on facts?
