Further issues with moderator incompetence

Postby xXD3mOnXx on Feb 3 2018, 5:57am

So again, there's a situation with borderline mod abuse. Im not entirely up to date on moderator tools, but here's the issue:
There's a trending thread. But oh wait, some troll just posted a comment there which isnt against the rules in any way but is, according to a mod, a touchy subject.
What do you do? Instead of removing the inappropriate message, forum banning the troll, or warning people to stay off that subject you go to your precious lock command, ending any serious discussion. You leave a message stating one may pm you if uncertain about the reasoning. So, I follow you, and the result is the usual: Completely ignored.
As if this wasnt enough, you also delete the entire thread, despite stating "Everything has already been said. Feel free to scroll back and read."
The hypocrisy of moderators is disgusting. This isnt aimed at all moderators. The two of you know who you are.

I do agree, the comment shouldn't have the ability to ruin an entire thread and the moderators with their various tools should be able to handle the individual without ruining it for everyone else. (Many other forums have this so it isn't a new concept)

:( seems like over kill why not just delete the message and warn the person like back in the day, forums is so dead now let’s not make it worse

I'd recommend maybe hiding the post that gets the thread locked. (from the public eye that is) then It'll be like it was never there, even thought it'll still up for the moderators view only. This would prevent whole threads being locked. When someone post lockable stuff it doesn't help that 15 other people follow up on that comment and turn the whole thread into something that it's not. That's most likely the reason it gets locked up.

TLDR:
I created a post about mods locking threads for no reason. Thread then gets locked for no reason. Thread then gets removed for no reason.

Don't assign modship to people with the following...


Intense preoccupation with a narrow subject, one-sided verbosity, a failure to seek shared enjoyments or achievements with others. A lack of social or emotional reciprocity ...ie: give-and-take mechanic.
