If you can't judge a person, but you can judge their actions, attitudes and behaviours, what part of them aren't you judging?
    OK, so the discussion of Martin Gibson has gone on long enough. If you wish to discuss his trip to Europe with him in a more positive way, do it in his most recent thread (click). This thread has become an extended personal attack, so it's closed.

No one is equipped to judge anyone else. They can judge the person's actions, their attitude, their behaviour, but they can't judge the person.

This doesn't mean, however, that they can't dislike the person! They most certainly can do that.

Here's the deal Mick.

If it is wrong to say those things. If it is vile and all that. It shouldn't be on this thread. If it was wrong to bring it up in the first place, delete that too and it will be gone.

There is nothing inherently sacred about expressing an opinion. If I believe someone is an asshole and tell them so, they are still an asshole. I may want to say that someone is an Asshole, but I know that when if do then a reasonable moderator would fairly consider that to be an insult. If Martin wants to toss around labels like "antisemite" and halucinate that someone is "a man tormented with guilt" then whether he believs it or not, it is still a verbal attack.

You moderators seem to be setting a double standard here. Martin can say almost anything he wants, until someone, anyone responds, then he can say exactly what he wants. Well that's nuts and it is exactly what NOT to do if you want peace here and if you want Martin to decrease the attacks.

The problem is not Martin Gibson. The problem is those who enable him and feed his mental illness. He has said dozens of things here that go way beyond the bounds of joking, way beyond the bounds of decency. You are either for his racism, mysogeny and outright cruelty or you are against it. If you agree with him at all when he attacks people, he takes it as an endorsement of his "persona" as well he should. Its as simple as that.

As long as Martin is here, people are going to point out who he is and what he has said. Some will do it insultingly, some will do so calmly and clearly as I have just done. You should be telling HIM not to rise to the bait, not everyone else and when he does rise to the bait, you should moderate HIM.

Mick, If you aren't prepared to accept that, then you are in for a long rough ride as a moderator.

My word, some threads do grow legs and keep running forever.

Just looked in to see how it was doing, and saw Martin's last post. A touch of open-mindedness there, pleased to see. Almost mellow - I have seen a lot of good things in Europe... I see the American influence every where and I understand why there is resentment toward it. I also see why there is positive American impact. Our music is on your radios... (Though unfortunately not your best music, much of the time, which I understand is true over in the States as well.)

Anyway I'm pleased it sounds as if he had a good time.

Alright, in response to several PM's from people I have great respect for, let me make it clear.

Martin's comments about Wesley were reprehensible and beyond the scope of what anyone should be expected to forgive. He can attempt to rewrite the history on them all he likes, but it is what it is. There is no putting the genie back in the bottle. What he said went beyond vile. One of the PM's I received said that his post of 5:38 AM should be deleted out of respect for Wesley. I could agree with that if I had requests to delete others who brought up Wesley. You see, it isn't Martin who keeps bringing this up, "picking the scab" as it were. I agree that we need to quit reminding the family of this tragedy. If you want to let someone know about this issue, do it in a PM with a link. That way we are not bringing it all up to Wes again. It is enough to point out that MG has said some horrible things. We all know that. He is not going away. We know that. I suggest not rising to his bait when he seeks to cause a reaction. I also suggest just engaging in debate when that is his intent. If there is a personal attack, which is not the same as disagreeing vehemently with you position, Joe or one of the clones will take care of that.

With regard to his comments about anti semitism, he is as entitled to his view as anyone else is. I have had two requests to delete his postings as personal attacks, but when I read them they were simply attacks on the views of others. We call that debate, folks, and as such is not to be curtailed or deleted. If he had used personal attacks within the scope of the post, either the whole post would have been deleted or at least the gratuitous vulgarity. This is a standard I will apply to all.

We aren't perfect, nor is the science of trying to moderate this place. As our friend Joe points out, we are not going to get all bound up in a legalistic mess here. We are going to try and use good sense, and follow some general guidelines in an effort to maintain the essence of this village we call Mudcat. We will miss some things, and you may feel free to PM those of us whose ID's are known and point things out. But we do this in our spare time, and my schedule means that I am on sporadically at best. Also, we do not inhabit all threads, so things will be missed there as well.

I will respond to the folks that sent me a PM as well, but I thought I would give a general response now.

When Martin is posting in an appropriate way, I have no problem with him. But his attempt to now alibi what he has done in the past is revisionist history. The fact is he came here with a chip on his shoulder towards "pseudo intellectuals" and people whose views are on the left side of the spectrum. I don't have a lick of problem with conservatives who vigorously respond to the discussion from their perspective. When those attacks are vicious personal smears lacking completely in content, and designed to hurt others, then I have a problem. Martin's attempt to rehabilitate his past image is commendable as long as it sticks to moving ahead with promoting his views with respect to the views of others. There is nothing he can do to change what he has said in the past, and at times it has been despicable. Those who defend him are johnny come latelies who weren't here and aren't really aware of how coarse he was, or the same folks that would do anything to attack what they perceive as the "ruling elite" of Mudcats.

I have, at times, agreed with Martin's position on things like Israel and anti semitism. Given the fact that it is the position here not to block cookies and deny membership, it seems to me that he will be with us for a long while. As long as his attacks are issue oriented, as opposed to personal, I feel it is appropriate to have discourse and try to learn from one another. When he posts as he has above, then a discussion is a good thing.

But ya can't revise history, bub, and you have been a mean fella. No amount of "rewrite" will change that. Let's see how it goes moving forward.

Mick

Martin...

I would appreciate if you would please, please stop bringing up the Death of Wesley's Child.
It is Cruel, Callous and in my opinion a very sick way to think.
I rarely say anything to you as I figure that you are what you are and you work at it but on this subject I find your attitude, frankly, sickening.
You know nothing of the circumstances surrounding that poor Child's passing and the grief it has brought.
You also certainly do not know Wesley.
A truly lovely person.

Is there a possiblity that you would consider apologizing for the pain you cause when you write the things you do about Wesley and the Family's loss? When you make wild statements that infer that this poor family were to blame for the Death of a lovely wee baby!

Also Martin. Ron Davies...you should meet Ron. Another great Person. Really. In fact it would be to your benefit if you would meet a lot of the people you seem to hate. I honestly believe you would find that your venom would vanish very quickly.
You always say you are simply giving back what you get Martin, but I don't see it like that at all. You push and push and push and then you get what you want. A Thread like this waiting for you, then you have a great reason to come in and bash away.
I know it is pointless writing this really.

I hope your Trip to Europe was fun with your Son. I know you didn't spend very much time in the Cities you were visiting which makes it very hard to get a true picture of the Culture and the People but still, I am sure you looked for the positive, as your time was so limited.

I wish I could say something else to close this post but really all I feel is very sad that you have come back and posted as you did.
That's the Truth, not a lecture, just how I feel.
You no doubt will blow off what I have said, or some nameless Guest will do it for you but I really wanted to say this and I call you Martin because.... I don't know your real name.
Jude

Podman et al.--

It would be good if you would familiarize yourselves with "Martin"s entire record before sounding off. Every incident I have cited is true. If that, particularly mocking the death of the Mudcatter's child-- is what turns you on, then that says it all.

As I've said before, I'm not the only one who feels it's time for "Martin"s antics to cease. Others have contacted me to support this. The revulsion against his trashing of Mudcat runs deep.

It's time for him to go back to his favorite Chicago bathroom--cookieless, at least--and spew to his heart's content there--just not on Mudcat. If you enjoy his performances, perhaps you'd care to join him there.

Perhaps however you may view other posters - it is not really setting a very good example to make any named fellow poster the subject of public conversations about them?

For then you lose any moral high ground and bring yourself down to the level of the posters you are encouraging public conversations about.

When everyone is encouraged by the example set to make personal judgments about you - these all tend to simply wash over you any way - take it from me..........

Fascinating to see all the people who think it's just fine that Mudcat has a racist, homophobic, vulgar Know-Nothing semi-literate (persona, of course--it's all a big joke--right?)--as one of its most prominent citizens. It's just great that "Martin" wishes the death of a Mudcatter's child, attacks Art Thieme for not being Jewish enough for Martin's discriminating taste, rails vulgarly against Kwanzaa, mocks a person in a wheelchair, and so on--right?   Really hilarious.

It says worlds about everyone who likes that stuff--just loves the joke, evidently. They must be big Jerry Springer fans too. And Cheney-style "dove hunts", no doubt.

It's hard to figure out who's more twisted--"Martin" or his fans. It's a hard-fought contest.
And of course it doesn't speak well for the moderators that they only make desultory- (there's one for you to look up, "Martin") -attempts once in a while to bring "Martin" under control, while shying away from any definite steps that would in fact do just that. Thereby they of course make far more work for themselves--needlessly.

Go figger.

Panis et circenses--though "Martin" would think the first word has an "e".

There's nothing wrong with good ol' Anglo-Saxon 4 letter words--in their place.   Their place is not in personal attacks. If "Martin" wanted to know what the proper place was, he need only consult Spaw. It seems likely, however, that "Martin" has no intention of using them as Spaw does.

Saying "don't respond" is a classic worthless answer. We've been down this road before.

1) You would need to get every poster on Mudcat to comply--including all Guests. Not likely.
2) You are thereby surrendering to evil. As I mentioned earlier--not cosmic evil, just stupid petty evil.
3) That sort of suggestion indicates a complete abdication of responsibility by the moderators.


And, after all, as the sick person behind "Martin" has told us often, "Martin" is not a person, just a persona. When that person starts taking responsibility for what his mouthpiece is saying, "Martin" will have some justification for existence on Mudcat.

Don't hold your breath.

Guest 9:44, you either have selective memory or choose to forget. When Martin is out of line we all get on his case. His comments are deleted when necessary. This thread, for whatever reason, has been allowed to stay afloat. Wake up!

It's sad that the people who's sensitivities are being lambasted by this thread can sit silently when martin is attacking a fellow member.

I agree totally. The criticisms and attacks on this thread would appear to give away more about the posters than the person attacked.
Some of the posts from certain people have been unexpected. Can we get back to something like the mudcat 'norm' now (whatever that is).
Best wishes, Mike.

Perhaps however you may view other posters - it is not really setting a very good example to make any named fellow poster the subject of public conversations about them?

In truth such threads do not say much about them or their possible motives but it does say a lot about those who indulge in expressing such personal judgements in public about their fellow posters.

And in future when you find the next subject for public discussion is you - there will be little justification for you to be upset at this.

This thread has said much about the people here. Martin, I think you are a winner compared to most here. Does anyone participating in this morass and in MG's absence have any shame?

"the reaction to MG is far far greater than anything MG himself posts."

Liek a nuclear blast - and you don't blame the countryside for the resulant fallout.

I think he has gone into the tardis and will come back speaking like Dick Van Dyke.
