Sounds more like it's qualified itself as a high-value EF thread. Hitler's in there too, you know.

But we still don't know what happened.

Mea culpa for replying to a few people when I should have known better...

We don't know whether 22yards has his full powers back (only because he has not posted on this, yet).

Ace1 and roegner posted that they do not know who it was who de-modded Ace1 and 22yards, and stripped roegner of some of her powers, nor why. If I've understood it correctly, they also do not know who restored the partial powers that have been restored nor why and, consequently also not why the restoration is only partial.
Oh, sorry. I didn't answer your question because my answer is the same as everybody else's, Castro and 3 Wishes included, unless something's changed recently.

We're all mods (two of us again) and we all have restricted moderator powers. I have no idea about the issues about which the others have no idea. Few ideas seem to be in existence about anything, actually, at least no ideas with any real foundation.

We still haven't heard from MusicChick and Lost_Inbroad, apart from the latter's brief cameo appearance yesterday, although both have been lurking here today, and we don't know the status of their mod powers.

I'm still trying to catch up on everything.

Personally, my spiralling confusion has now gone fractal, but at least it's beautifully symmetrical.

Glad I could explain all that for you.

Shame on you. The whole exchange was provoked by you. I haven't addressed any post here directly to you but you kept making all sort of remarks and jokes. I didn't find them funny. You then commented I'm mean (the irony) and now cry victim. Wow. Sublime.
You made a long winding post about double standards on an open forum. I responded to that in a factual and nice way that you need to stand up for truth irrespective of if the banned user or Mod was your friend or enemy!


Since then, I think I mostly responded to you when you quoted my post. Did I ever PM you? If you don't find my jokes/banter funny then that is perfectly fine. You can banter back or ignore me. I can handle that. Going tangent and calling me a creep and a stalker, I can't stand for that!!!


Imagine I accused you suddenly of racism now, would you be gobsmacked? Yes, that is how I felt when you accused me of stalking you and being a creep! So yes shame on you once again! Grow up!!!

Quote:
Seriously, let's leave it at that. I proposed using the ignore function.
Yes, let's leave it at that, so why the f*** do you keep quoting me? You can put me on ignore, I am not childish like you!
Don't quote me please and carry on!

You two should get a room, really.
That is no longer possible, the chat was closed down in the same manner the mods have been demodded: Over night and nobody's fault and EB claimed he had nothing to do with it.

Some people won't learn

remaining civil is what makes human beings different from the rest of the beings crawling or swimming this earth; what is the point in getting personal and stroppy while hiding behind a keyboard and a pseudonym? I am sure most of the keyboard warriors would not say Boo! to a goose.
Funny that. I have the impression that any species apart from human race is civil.

Myself included as I have always understood feminism as appreciation and respect for women
So if I want to find out whether you respect me I have to undress you?
Nice try.

Good question.
Well, it was a thread kick-started by two grumpy mods, did you really ever expect this to be useful to anyone?

And just pro-actively saying, I'm not stalking you, I'm merely responding

Oh, I feel so honoured. Nice, nice. You try your best to provoke people and then are complaining they're sensitive little cupcakes. Well done, seriously, it takes some skills and determination.

Re: Mod coup

Why is it a ‘coup’ anyway? It looks like the demotion of two mods to me. Unless of course Ace is suggesting that musicchick has initiated the coup.

I am trying to understand what exactly happened as much as anyone else - unfortunately reading this thread doesn't really help, tbh.
