Why did you destroy all these nice conspiracy theories with just one post? It was so much fun while it lasted
I am sorry, yes? What have I done this time, lol.

And yes, we get busy. Plus I want to know more to actually understand...it's not like we can provide any decent answers so far.

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.
No, I never suggested that. I didn't have a clue what or who it was, just that it appeared that 22Y and myself had been ousted. The choice of words was not intended to imply anything more specific.

No she doesn't. A woman standing up for herself doesn't automatically become a man hater.
Reeking of misery has nothing to with liking or hating men.

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!!!

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!
Enough already!!!! Talk about childish! Just drop it, or I'll be happy to try out my restored banning power (for a temporary ban this time). Applies to both parties, obviously.

Since we haven't heard from EB, and we've gone through all the other mods, have you had any communication with Editor bob regarding this thread?

Re: Mod coup

Have to admit to still logging in here occasionally, in case another poor lost soul gets lost in within the dark soupy skies of Zürich during winter while desperately seeking the light.

Have no idea who / what / why - I do hope it has nothing to do with me calling a certain mod a dickhead, and asking if has thought about reconsidering their position due to subjective / biased moderation.

And believe it or not, many persons may find it offensive to use a dick-pick as your profile pic. Maybe this is what people find offensive? That it’s some car stick doesn’t hide the thinking or projection behind. I don’t think that anyone would benefit trust wise from - anything in the remote direction of a clit pick - on my profile.

Hmm, in that case it doesn't leave many candidates for people that could have done this except EB? It could be that after the complaint emails (and we have no idea how strongly they were worded or what was said) he received from people you guys banned, that he decided to remove your modding powers temporarily while he checks through the history and decides if you have both been using them properly or not. If so then clearly he could and should have informed you first.

Other than that I really can't see many other plausible explanations other than a very weird and very specific technical glitch or a very coincidental mistake.

Re: Mod coup

I just wanted to say that I chatted a bit with 22Yards yesterday about something else, and he mentioned that he had no idea what had happened (or why), exactly, and that he wasn't wanting to blame MC for it. I think she was suspected due to the nature of past interactions (or something) and the fact that she was or is a 'fan' of Tony Clifton, but 22Yards was not willing to really blame MC without understanding what had happened first. And then I think MC's absence yesterday made some a bit more suspicious but at the same time, people were acknowledging that they had no idea what the cause was. That suspicion would have been quickly brought to an end if MC didn't have a life and had been on here yesterday. lol.

When something bizarre like that happens, our minds struggle to understand why, and so naturally we consider the possible causes. And regarding assumptions... We all make them. It's due to the way our brains process information, which is according to information that we've already processed, in the past. "We are strange loops" -- to reference a book that I love.

Anyways, sorry, that's just my thoughts on it. I think the last thing anyone needs in this forum is any more animosity between members.

My only ever complaint against one of the mods was in March 19, I know Editor Bob is slow to react but I don't think it was to do with me.

Re: Mod coup

Maybe we're all part of a psychological experiment and just don't know it. The forum overlords are f'ing with us just to see how long it takes until we start killing one another.

Meanwhile, in Florida...

Firstly, you should be banned, Ace, for the abuse of the wod "myself". The word you seek is "me".

Actually, he was seeking the word "I".

You wouldn't say, "Me have been removed ...", you'd say, "I have been removed ...".

Also, "wod"?
