Bickering and fighting is over - Class316 solution reached

We are tired of all the fighting. Class is at the core of it, but it takes two to tango and many of you engage him and it just goes on and on.

In response, we have now instituted a post approval on every post Class makes, which means unless one of us approve it, none of you will see it. This should eliminate the annoying posts that work people into a fury.

Now on the other hand, this is not an excuse to taunt him because we are policing his posts, I expect everyone to grow up and act normal or else similar restrictions will go onto more accounts.

If Class is really the root of the fighting, it has been neutralized, so let's see everyone get along like the popular narrative says will happen without him stirring the pot.

Excellent idea that was absolutely necessary.

Hmmm, well, knowing the situations that have arisen, I don't know if I completely agree with this one although I see why some would. An argument can be made that then all of us should have of posts reviewed, but then again, we are not causing as many said issues.

Personally, I am not crazy about his " I have proof" e-mails to make others look bad or to "State his case", however I have not met Class in person yet, and how he chooses to live his life, AS LONG HE IS NOT PHYSICALLY HURTING or doing any damage to someones workplace or home, then it is all interesting reading here. He has also helped me in the past as I have helped him blindly with tickets. To others, with reasons that may or may not be known to all of us, he is guilty until proven innocent.

One day, I hope to dine with everyone here ( including the rare 16times) and get an understanding why does this hobby mean that much to everyone and why can't we work together as a unit then against. But.....

Now, lets find Steve Perry and stop with this ragamuffin talk!

Anyone who baits Steve should have their posts deleted. I am so uninterested in reading the same fights over and over. I love this place but it's becoming really ridiculous with the fighting

Yes, this is what I am trying to avoid. He is obviously not entirely to blame, his baiting only works when people take said bait and engage. He is great entertainment and contributions when he harnesses that, but he clearly grates on many people's nerves and the only way to avoid everything being taken over is to filter everything and attempt to weed out the problems.

The easy solution is a ban, this would be time consuming to approve all these posts, but the idea is to lose the fighting and keep him, so I would be happy to do it. And anyone baiting Steve is subject to the same penalties going forward, this is not a penalty on him, just a realization that he has had countless enemies in the past decade on here and has to be viewed as a common link.

With stuff like this you're damned if you do and damned if you don't, because while many like the fighting and distractions gone, there will always be a few who enjoy the car crash aspect of it.

I was given mod privileges earlier this year, primarily to fix links, organize con/signings, etc. I purposely stayed away from policing, because I myself have dealt with Internet lunatics for over two decades, so very little phases me. That being said, WOODMO has been forced to split off or delete -
completely off topic bickering, usually on reports, and almost always centered on Class. This happens once every couple weeks if not more frequently, and shouldn't be tolerated. Some people don't want their report content criticized, others (like me) do not care either way.

What you cannot have are threats, and Class has given and received far too many of them lately. We have privately admonished him for this, regardless of who is to blame, but he never can control himself. If it were up to me, I would say this.... If you freely insist on bickering with Class, that's your business. As long as it's civil. Get out of line, and mods step in. If you are tired of it, and leave the forum, I truly hate to see that happen, but that's your choice. It's a two-way street in nearly every incident.

Some of the mods don't read every thread, so things get missed, too. Unfortunately the only way for the board to continue with Class is that the mods will have to do a lot of modding, which is really unnecessary and a waste of time. Class has his "fans" and I suppose without him the readership falls, but it's just really ridiculous.

There were about 2 weeks in board history when things were perfect on it. Maybe not so much off of it. Just sayin

I remember those 2 weeks. Coincidentally, the day those 2 weeks ended was the last time I logged in. It looks like I've had a PM sitting there since 2014 from WOODMO telling me he wasn't going to honor my request to delete my account. It looks like most of my posts have been purged, so good enough I guess.

I literally have zero recollection of the request, me sending you a PM, none of it. I wonder how many other unread PMs are out there hahaha

I've already thanked them in private, but I will thank them in public as well. I would like to thank the mods for stepping in and ending all hostilities. While that was different years ago during the arena days, I myself never wanted any fights as I'm getting too old for this and need to worry about other things in life (both combo related and otherwise). So I thank the mods for finally stepping in and creating peace.

agreed. filtering class316 was the best thing that could have been done to create the peace.
