Ted's message was deleted. Then reinstated. Whoever thought it offensive enough to delete was clearly acting without any consultation from Joe etc. Irregardless of it's merit giok, the clone was wrong, and proven so by it's reinstatment.

Shambles 1 --- Clone 0.
    Remember, it really doesn't make sense for Clones to have to check with Joe or Jeff before deleting - if that were the requirement, then there would be no reason at all for Clones to deal with problem posts, and Joe and Jeff would have to be omnipresent.
    The requirement is for Clones to consult with Joe and Jeff after a deletion, so that the decision to delete can be reviewed. This deletion was reviewed, and the message in question was undeleted.

Since you are with us, you get to help us make the rules.

It is as well to provide all the words of the quote. The word 'us' is important - its use by Max in this context - is inclusve and accommodating. It means ALL of 'us'.

The use now - of the word 'we' by our anonymous volunteers - in the sense of which of Max's invited contributions 'we' allow and what we routinly delete - is exclusive and divisive.

Don't sweat the rules, cause there aint none. Seems clear enough.......

Oh alright then - for a bit of peace.

Do you ever stop to wonder why you make so little progress with your arguments, & does it ever occur to you to wonder whether you are out of step with the rest of the board & whether you ought to reconsider your opinions?

Yes.


BTW if you look back at the post of - 19 Mar 05 - 03:13 AM - you will see that Flamenco Ted's (obnoxious) message - that some unknown volunteer deleted without the Chief of the Mudcat Editorial Staff being aware of this action - has silently slipped back into this thread. There is no explanation of why it is not now considered by some - to be 'obnoxious' any more - but it does now look a bit greener than when I last saw it............

Is it really too much to expect that any future editing actions can be a bit more limited and proportionate than they are currently? These posts may be irritating to some - but to describe them as 'obnoxious' in order to delete them - when there are far more 'obnoxious' posts that do safely remain - is hardly proportionate or sensible.

These posts do at least provide some fun to those who post them and as there is no question of them causing any real offence - perhaps it can be accepted that these are viewed as simply a matter of taste?

Well, the irony of it all is that Shambles has never been censored

Exactly. Harpgirl, no-one has demanded that Roger be censored, we just wish he'd shut up! He's the boy who cries wolf. One day (perhaps it's already been & gone) the wolf might really turn up. If we're relying on Shanmbles for our early warning system, we're stuffed, because next to no-one cares what he has to say on the subject any more (except to tell him to shut up).

Oh, & Roger, thank you for proving my earlier point. You continue to answer other posts, but ignore the awkward question. You know, the one I asked, that you really don't seem to want to answer. Just in case you've forgotten,

Do you ever stop to wonder why you make so little progress with your arguments, & does it ever occur to you to wonder whether you are out of step with the rest of the board & whether you ought to reconsider your opinions?

(And, yeah, I looked up the other one eventually - I think you're talking crap. I'm not going to criticise Joe for those responses. I've bitten after severe provocation too. And Roger, you piss people off! Why are you so totally blind to that?)

The facts are all here - it is up to those reading this to judge. And the judgement of the majority of those who have posted here is that you're in the wrong as usual. Now what are you going to do?

Decide that you're better informed, or not the sycophantic lickspittles that you'd like to mark everyone else down as? I know what you're not going to do. You're not going to shut up, because you can't even face & answer the question that I keep asking you, & you keep hoping no-one else will notice...

Well, the irony of it all is that Shambles has never been censored.

Whether my invited contributions to Max's website had ever been the unfortunate victim of imposed censorship by our anonymous volunteers or not has never been the issue (for me).

However, if I had made such a statement as the above - there usually are plenty of posters who would post to point out what they consider to be even the smallest error of fact - but as that is unlikly to happen in this case - I suppose it falls to me to point out that Joe Offer's statement is not true.

Unless of course you don't consider it to be censorship when your postings are deleted along with the entire contents of a thread - because our anonymous volunteers cannot be bothered to distingush between the offending posts and the rest?

Or when the title of a music thread (containing a song parody) is changed without your knowledged and against your wishes and you are then given the ultimatum of accepting the change - or of having your musical contribution sent to the BS section?

And talking of irony - as the Chief of the Mudcat Editorial Team was not aware that some anonymous volunteer had deleted a post from this very thread (on the subject Mudcat censorship) - perhaps it is unwise of him to make such statements?

Shambles,
with regard to your post dated 20 Mar 05 - 06:48 AM that
quotes a comment that I had made earlier:

"We've read it [your complaints]and most don't agree."

In response to this you wrote:

"Perhaps most of those who are prepared to post to say this - are anonymous volunteers themselves? "

Well, you probably were not directing that comment to me, but just for the record let me say that I may be anonymous and I have done some volunteering for various efforts that I believe in. But if you are referring to my serving as an assistant to Joe Offer, nope that ain't me..I'm just a new kid on the block. {Well I'm not a 'kid' anymore, but the rest of my comment is the God's honest truth.}

I must say Shambles that I like the creativity of your comment "Turkeys voting for Christmas"

I hereby give you notice that I intend to borrow that phrase, but change the holiday to Thanksgiving. In so doing that would give the comment more USA cultural punch!!

Shambles, it seems you're on a mission, and no one and nothing will deter you from 'doin your thing'. Since this is a 'free country', and a free online community, I support your right to fuss.

But I thank God that no one is FORCING me to read your remarks.
That would truly be cause for concern.

Don't sweat the rules, cause there aint none.


These quotes are from the time where it was accepted that 'all animals were equal' on our forum. Now that some animals appear to have taken over the farmyard - make their own rules and now declare that 'some animals are more equal than others' – to anonymously impose their judgement upon and delete the contributions of others - perhaps a review is in order?

I don't think anyone should have the right to make Shambles "Shuddup awready!". I do wish someone could persuade him to, though.

I've always been a man that's open to ----persuasion. Perhaps this could be tried?

I fail to see why 'shutting me up' should appear to matter, so much to so many. For no one is imposing my view upon anyone else - against their will or forcing anyone to see it my way - if you don't open this thread or close any other thread imediately you see a post from me there - that problem is easily solved....

The wisdom or need for anonymous volunteer posters passing their personal judgement on the worth of another poster's contributions and deleting it or closing entire threads - if and when they feel like it - without the posters prior knowledge and on all occasions - remains to be addressed or debated.

Does it really have to be as unpleasant as all this bullying? If censorship or moderation MUST NOW take place on our forum (and expect to be generally supported) - should it not be OPEN, FAIR AND HAVE A CLEAR OBJECTIVE?

In all honesty - can this current practice be defended as being OPEN, FAIR AND HAVING A CLEAR OBJECTIVE?

Is it really SO good that any positive suggestions as to how effectiveness and support can be improved - must be met with sarcasm (and worse) from our volunteers and their supporters?

Anyone who may be in agreement with me that things need to be improved - is hardly likely to be prepared to post publicly to say this and subject themselves to this treatment - are they?

When I was barely a teenager, there was a local "village fool" in our neighbourhood. Everyone knew his "buttons": If you mentioned the name of a well-known actress, he would drool; and if you mentioned the word "knife" he would swear uncontrollably.

The poor guy could hardly make ten steps on the street before a kid, or - just as often - a grownup, would shout either or both "buttons", just to witness his inevitable reactions for the umpteenth time.

With April Fool's Day looming, I have an idea......:-)

Well, the irony of it all is that Shambles has never been censored. He has always been allowed to say exactly what he wants to say. Now, I will admit that we have sometimes thwarted his desire to post multiple copies of the same message in multiple threads, and we have combined threads when he has see fit to start multiple threads on the same subject - but at least one copy of every word Shambles has written remains posted here at Mudcat.

Many of us have strongly disagreed with Shambles, but I don't think that's censorship. In fact, it would be censorship if we were not allowed to disagree.

So, the only personal effect that "censorship" has had on Shambles is that he has not been allowed to post multiple copies of posts.

Poor Shambles.

Mudcat it owned by Max, right? If he doesn't agree with your position, then it seems to me that it's time for you to accept the fact. You've made your position known-as is your right-and it appears that Max doesn't buy it.

Shambles, I respect the fact that you are exercising your right to make known your discontent about what you see are problems here. And I do believe you are well meaning.

Outside of Mudcat, you may already be an advocate for other causes that have the goal of making the world a better place. If so, I applaud you.

May I suggest that you take some of the energy that you are expending fighting this cause of censorship on Mudcat and
re-direct taht energy to those other causes?

From the time we are born we give up freedom and liberty for convenience and safety. How far we are willing to travel the road is the question and this is why Roger that I do not support the Patriot Act and most of the other policies purporting to protect us by Bush and others. But it is silliness to argue the cause of unlimited freedom as you seem to do as NO ONE has it. In "The Political Illusion" Jacques Ellul argues that "The people will fancy an appearance of freedom; Illusion will be their native land."

Most of us assume freedoms that do not actually exist and when confronted with the fact that we must fight for them, stop and take a look at just how important that particular thing is. Now if it is important to you, then the fight and the civil disobedience required is part of the game. Are you saying that you are willing to stand up and fight for a censorless system here?   OR are there some things that YOU feel need censored?

Max has continually approved the work of Joe and The Clones and when he hasn't or has had a question, it seems as though they handled it themselves. Are you saying you want to be privvy to this? Seems to me we are ALL privvy to this because Joe and The Clones have kept right on during the YEARS you have been harping away! This should be evidence to you but I guess it isn't. How about if Max sends you a note that says, "I approve the way it is! Now shut the fuck up!"....Would that do it? Re-read Jon's comments above as I think he may have it right...............

But listen, if you think we should be censor free......Tell Joe that is the way YOU want THIS THREAD to be and I'll back you up. Then, I guess we can start playing The Dozens huh?

What I find amusing Roger, is that there are a number of people here on the thread who wish to censor you by trying to get you to stop posting about censorship just because they don't like hearing you say the same thing over and over in many different ways and sometimes with a new twist. But you have the right to continue to speak on censorship and I hope you do. Thank god you can speak up. And shame on the people who want to censor you just because you are repetitive and sometimes illogical. It is your right and I am not being sarcastic.


I for one, believe that according to their rules you will not be censored for just being repetitive, but they are tempted! So then you will have demonstrated that censorship at Mudcat occurs when someone feels like it, because they have been annoyed, or because they have arbitrary or misused powers. Sort of like the Bush administration.   

keep speaking up Roger. The world needs people like you.

love, harpgirl

"A handful of assholes"

I wish you hadn't said that Cap'n, such a nasty image.

Without some control this site could degenerate into just another cesspool of personal attacks, and end up inhabited by nasty people who drive good folks away.
If a handful of assholes lack the wit to temper what they say here, they should be censored.

Here we go again Rambles. Either:

1. Joe and the clones are acting against Max's will (something I do not believe), in which case the question you really need to be asking is why Max allows such a situation to exist.

2. Joe and the clones are acting with Max's will in which case you sould be asking Max why he sets the policy (one I've no objection to) he does.

Until you at least try to make the effort, you will make no sense. This is either a persistant attack on Joe (which I suspect it is) or you have created the fantasy in your own mind that Max is in charge but isn't in charge.
