    This speaks for itself doesn’t ? Pretty much I’d say. Since I’ve been back in the game I’ve seen almost everyones’ post in wc that falls under this disciplining guideline. Even some of the Mods posts are a bit racy at times which I’ve pointed out.....you know who you are. Yes if you happen to get caught in the cross hairs of a Mod then they can thread the needle on any of these examples in the guideline. It’s eye opening when you see posts that don’t get punished but should, most likely because of favoritism. I’m talking about the top ten..let’s say famous wc posters, me included. Yes I’m in there, but I’m infamous.
     
  2. I just saw in wc a post “those damn Canadians”. It’s funny. I blame Canada for everything. “Blame Canada Blame Canada” Even the Canadian Mods have a laugh about this. Yet under the guideline,
    - Do not use language that promotes discrimination or hatred towards individuals or groups due to ethnicity, nationality, gender, orientation, or disability.
    it’s a silencable offense. Do you see players getting silenced for it ? I don’t and never have. Any Mod that has a sense of humor and or the comprehension of the workings of a joke hasn’t silenced anyone for it. Besides who doesn’t like the banter? Personally I do. It keeps wc rolling through the giant ads.

    Now on to another common abuse in public being exploited
    Inappropriate Content
    Posting obscene, pornographic, excessively violent, harmful, or sexually explicit content. This includes using emoji’s to create inappropriate art or messages. This would be another one we’ve seen in wc posted by many including Mods. When pointed out it’s all “ Why can’t you just have fun ?” or Mei blasting me in pm “please just let it go”. Hey that was crazy. That proves that something happened. Proves I wasn’t making it up. Also proves much more. I saw abuse of power and pointed it out. Since then I’ve been a target of a certain Mod and or Mods and being harassed every time I post in wc.
     
  3. blow that whistle, you little kettle
     
  4. Harassment
    Posting messages or engaging in actions that discriminate, promote hate, violence, or advocate hatred or discrimination against individuals, groups, races, cultures, or organizations.
    This would be what’s happening to me. I’ll explain why. I’m presently on a 7 day silence from a banter session in wc with Drgn. Cool dude. Like to banter with him and he likes it also. It Doesn’t involve any other Mod at this point in time, meaning it’s not pointed at anyone else with a green name. We have forged a type of friendship over this present silence. He even wrote a letter to the support team to try to get it reversed. He didn’t think my post was a silencable offense and that I shouldn’t have been. Actually Drgn had this to say, ( sorry after all these years I still can’t figure how to post screenshots....on the Domo scale I just suck)
    “Nooope. I saw it, but didn’t think it was silencable. We might disagree most of the time, but I’m not actually out to get you.” Said Drgn after I asked if he silenced me. Let’s examine the last part. “I’m not actually out to get you”. He is not but that statement shows someone is. He even said, “I submitted a request, no guarantees but we’ll see how it goes. Besides, if I was truly offended I would have unfollowed you a long time ago.” Drgn is trying to help.

    Drgn wrote a request and so did I. It took over 30 hrs after the first help ticket was posted. This would be the response, “Thanks for writing in. We have checked our records and determined that your silence is valid. Please note that you can be silenced for anything that we determine to be inappropriate in our public channels. Our public channels are: world chat, walls and status messages.”
    Yeah that is a huge gray blanket. “Anything that we determine”
    This is what the actually posted...now mind you it’s not offensive, it’s basically the same as the “ those damn Canadians” type of post. I’ll even put a disclaimer...please take heed of this warning this post is not for the weak, anyone with heart problems, and young of mind. If support can post it to me then it should be ok.
    You said "I think drgn has been diagnosed with adulthood autism....or he hasn’t taken his pills" on world chat. This is what a Mod thinks is a silencable offense and actually Drgn said it was a great burn.

    This is where the harassment comes into play. I’m an being harassed by a Mod. I’m getting silenced for things that the favorites will not be punished for. I’m infamous. I like to troll. I like the banter that I can create. It’s a game and I play it my way. Picking and choosing who to silence for non silencable offenses and targeting certain players falls under harassment and abuse of powers. If you wouldn’t silence your friends for it then you can’t silence your enemies for the same.
    “ Anything we determine” could have you silenced for your political, religious views, hobbies, and good ole American fun. Those damn Canadians could push the crazy radical button and do so.
    In the past there has been plenty of threads trying to prove the abuse of power by the Mods. I think this one really points this out. This isn’t a rage rant piece but more of a informative documentary of the life as a harassed player in kaw. Please feel free to post your views and comments of events that happened to you. Please stay on topic. I only want the topic at hand.

  5. I'm confused is this a drgn love letter or is it just to complain? I can't determine.
     
  6. Abuse of power
     
  7. Good effort thread. Support. :)
     
  8. Did someone like, break your heart? Do you need to talk?
     
  9. Did somebody say kasama?

     
  10. Similar to DRDEATH69, there are many comedians. Some great, some not so great. But one thing I've noticed that is consistent between each and everyone one of them... Change, they don't go out every time hitting the stage with the same boring routine, trying to use the exact same material. Even that large woman who got booed off of Netflix knows how to change things up.

    But again, there is a certain level of unique-ness within KaW and its *spits on ground* COMEDIANS

    And by unique-ness, I mean this specific comedian does not change their material, even though EVERYONE ELSE DOES.

    Oh well do you. 2 years and counting, pal. Maybe someday 4chan will recognise you?

     
  11. Its pretty well known that the tou is an entire grey area with no strict guidelines on purpose so the mods and devs can pretty much silence/ban you for anything then hide behind the tou. One of many reasons this game is trash and falling apart
     
  12. Did you run this sookfest past your puppet master before posting Domo ?
     
  13. Ella only warning you will get.....stay on topic or get booted off thread.

  15. Stay on topic monkey. Don’t care what you do in rl
     
  16. What if the topic is dumb tho
     
  17. If you can’t stay on topic you will be asked to leave.
     
  18. What is the topic?
    You got a 7 day silence ... big deal , suck it up and move on
     
  19. You are really that special type of stupid. Did stop reading there? Or just not smart enough.
     
  20. Domo, ok maybe you feel picked on, if so, I have no clue really. But the thing is, did you, not anyone else, but did you break tou, if so, then you deserved the silence. If you don't break tou, regardless what others do you won't be silenced. Out of 6 years of playing, I've been silenced once, which was my fault and I took responsibility for it. So maybe you and Drgn were just going on, maybe would of been more appropriate in pm if was against tou then?

    Anyways,the moral of the story is: don't break tou and you won't be silenced!

    And good news is even when silenced now you can still talk in pm and cc, so continue to enjoy and have fun!

    Hope you have a fabulous day/night! :)
