So, can anyone remind me what was it all about with DarkUnderlord vs Vault Dweller disagreement in ca. 2007?

Stricter rules I recall? Ah I see...

Not only that, but VD also wanted rules specifically to enforce political correctness, forbid people from posting black humor and instate a great purge against all lulz.
I have nothing against political incorrectness or black humor, but everything should have limits. Laughing at dead kids killed in a school shooting or cracking jokes about it is too much. There are other ways to show your edginess. Same goes for over-the-top racial comments and other stupidity.

Just in case you actually wanted the answer:

Vault Dweller said:
Now, the reasons for me stepping down. If I stay, I'll have to ban a lot of motherfuckers.

When (if) I come back, I immediately ban Percolator, Riso, Helton, Cassidy, Vrok, Sovard, and anyone who will start posting "unban patriots" therads, warn a few others (skyway, Slavemaster, etc) . More if necessary. I assume that Pooper, Nico, NL were banned already.
We (that is, all of the old Admin staff at the time) disagreed, it went from there.
For the record, since that old drama refuses to die, and that old private post lacking context keeps being re-posted, I owe my apologies to Cassidy and Helton. I was wrong.

Now perform the ceremonial docking ritual and you can all put it behind you.

good thing they weren't banned by the first sucker who came along and found them ban-worthy, then, huh? :troll:

I didn't ban them when I was still an admin (hence the point about the context missing) after the hijacking, did I? I felt that shitposters were bringing the site down and disrupting good discussions and felt that the 'final solution' was needed. Other admins disagreed and that was the end of it. Had they agreed, we would have discussed who needed to be banned and why.

I'm reporting sexually explicit pictures and idonthavetimeforthiscrap is flaunting to me that he's not doing anything about it because "you sure don't like depictions of the heterosexual act". How hard is it to enforce a simple rule, the first one on the list. I know you can't expect never to see any such material on the Codex but come on.

Was a thread entitled "what the fuck is wrong with JarlFrank" ever likely to be wholesome family reading?

So, can anyone remind me what was it all about with DarkUnderlord vs Vault Dweller disagreement in ca. 2007?

Stricter rules I recall? Ah I see...

Not only that, but VD also wanted rules specifically to enforce political correctness, forbid people from posting black humor and instate a great purge against all lulz.
I have nothing against political incorrectness or black humor, but everything should have limits. Laughing at dead kids killed in a school shooting or cracking jokes about it is too much. There are other ways to show your edginess. Same goes for over-the-top racial comments and other stupidity.
While I generally don't believe in heavy-handed moderation, the Codex could use a serious, merciless, and permanent purge of the worst retards.

GD should just be labeled NSFW.

It has been carefully reviewed by the Codex Safeguarding Children Board and has been determined in line with our mission.

Ignoring the text, the Codex tries to be as visually work friendly as possible. This means you should feel safe to open most threads without seeing tits, ass or whatever the latest internet abomination is - unless you have been appropriately forwarned.

The thing is that this portion of the rules almost doesn't apply at all. It's been numerous times now that I have reported offensive explicit pictures and I had to fight for it every time. There is no reasonable expectation of safety when the mods drag their feet as much as possible, laugh at you, and do anything not to put the outrageous pictures in IMG tags instead of tagging NSFW a thread that had no such outrageous pictures in the first place.

I can't browse this forum with my wife around because since the rules are so neglected there is always the risk of running into these outrageous shock pictures I don't want to subject her to, since the mods and admins don't take this seriously at all.

Not only that, but VD also wanted rules specifically to enforce political correctness, forbid people from posting black humor and instate a great purge against all lulz.
I have nothing against political incorrectness or black humor, but everything should have limits. Laughing at dead kids killed in a school shooting or cracking jokes about it is too much. There are other ways to show your edginess. Same goes for over-the-top racial comments and other stupidity.

It's truth universally acknowledged that shit went batshit at around that time and never quite recovered (as far as I can remember from my lurking days). Then again I think that after all those years the community has learned to do a great job of moderating itself.

So, can anyone remind me what was it all about with DarkUnderlord vs Vault Dweller disagreement in ca. 2007?

Stricter rules I recall? Ah I see...

Yeah, nowadays they don't joke anymore about child killers, they call them saints.

I frankly don't understand the vilification of the Saints Row franchise.

EDIT: Also raw you rat bastard, I wanted to take that avatar.

Who are they? Dumbfucks and Village idiots that are easily singled out and made a laughing stock of for the Glory of Kodexia?
