So I guess calling women "lazy" and "stupid" is acceptable? As I reported that comment and it was completely ignored.

I genuinely don't care about groans etc., I just don't like seeing a respected member get banned for annoying a mod and regular hate speech towards an entire half of the population is somehow accepted.
Calling women (or men) that is not acceptable.

I must admit that I not always have time to check the reported items, mea culpa, especially when I´m traveling for work.

Feel free to contact me directly, Susie-Q, if that happens again.

Re: Tit for Tat groaning...BY A MOD !!

PapaGoose - take your own advice:

" If you have nothing to add, then often it's best to say nothing.... "

That surely applies to your own groans too or are you so ignorant of your own hypocrisy?

Re: Tit for Tat groaning...BY A MOD !!

In this and the bullying thread, PapaGoose has groaned fifteen times and not posted a single comment on either thread.

Is that isn't "drive-by groaning" then perhaps the mods could explain what is?

No idea how people like this get on in the non virtual world. You know, in reality where you have to deal with things you may not like or agree with

Because majority of the time you are infantile in your reactions and seem to not have the faintest clue what a difference of opinion entails - did you live in a commune/cult previously?

In the span of 12 months you repeatedly ask inane questions that are easily searched in the forum or wade knee deep into tit for tat spats. Perhaps you should take up a hobby where you can sharpen those social skills & at least develop a bit of backbone

Point out a single question I’ve asked in the past twelve months that could be that could have been answered by a search on the forum. I asked a question about electronic goods, televisions I believe, about a year and a half ago where you had a meltdown, causing another poster to make a comment so classic that I remember it to this day, “who pissed in your cornflakes?”

Rather funny, several of the folks on this thread doing exactly what they’ve accused me of.

You have posted 56 new threads since June 2021 - you can check them yourself. And have also totaled a massive 221 groans you’ve given to other posters in this short period.

I don’t remember seeing that report but I don’t always see them all, especially if I have a busy day teaching.

BIB That wasn’t why he was banned. As with most things on here there is a lot more to it than most forum members see.

PapaGoose and Stlemans do that all the time.

Is it a case of selective modding?

Or, are the circumstances different for these too and, in the name of transparency, why?
It depends on the circumstances and maybe different mods interpret things in different ways.

For me repeatedly groaning all posts they don’t like in a thread without commenting or groaning all posts by a specific user are what I consider to be out of order and ban worthy. Other mods may think otherwise.

He just gave me loads of red rep too just now so I'd call that retaliation for my comment on this thread.
But that tit-for-tat is probably OK.
Tit-for-tat neg repping is when someone reacts to receiving neg rep by handing some out.

It's not, for example, when some clever git hands out neg rep in response to receiving positive rep. But I did find it funny.

So it's a bit like "first strike"?
Get that neg rep in first before the other person otherwise they'll be consequences for you.

Sounds like a race to the bottom.
