[done] Forum Glitch Causing Name Changes?
« on: January 05, 2019, 09:00:10 PM »
I've noticed that my forum username has changed two times recently without my doing it.

First it was ThePowerofCrepesCompelsYou.

Now it's Whatwouldjessu001do.

My firm belief that a community admin would never abuse power this way to bully a minority whose ideas he disagrees with is starting to waver.

If he wants to be funny, he should make a forum post like everyone else.

If he wants to engage with any of my views on any topic, he can write pages and pages and pages and provide examples from history, science, statistics, case studies, and the Bible.

To mess with my account settings (a power he has that I don't), both times intending to mock me for being a Christian, he is breaking some of his own posted forum rules:

Religious, racial, or sexual intolerance
Posts containing religious, racial, or sexual intolerance, unless posted in the Flames subforum, will result in a warning and such posts will be sent to the flame forum.  Frequent offenses can result in warnings or bans.

Insults and offensive language
Insults and flames in the regular forums will typically be overlooked, especially in posts that contain additional content.  However, disruptive flame wars or empty content flames can result in warnings or bans, especially when moderators are forced to send a portion of a thread to the Flame forum.

Pornography and not safe for work imagery
Pornography and not safe for work material must always be accompanied by a warning and provided only in spoiler tags or by a link.  This rule applies to all forums, even the Flame War forum.  Offenses will result in warnings or bans.

Spam and off-topic garbage
Spam bots and spam advertising is banned.  Persistent contentless posting can also result in warnings or bans.

Abuse of forum features
You can be warned or banned for falsely reporting posts, spamming karma votes, or otherwise abusing forum features.

In all cases, first offenses will usually be warnings, but repeated offenses can lead to temporary or indefinite bans.
In all cases, people can be warned or banned at the discretion of the moderators. 


Changing my account name to a blasphemous mockery substituting "Crepes" for "Christ" and "Whatwouldjessu001do" in place of the "What would Jesus do?" catchphrase are both targetting me based on my religion.

He didn't do this as far as I know to any other user, not the n-word users, the "kill xyz and their kids" users, not the Muslims.

It's obviously an abuse of power to mess with a user's account settings and change a name that does not violate a Code of Conduct to names that are intended to insult/mock the user.

No other forum or website I've joined has ever messed with my user account settings. Are they also reading private forum messages sent to other users? Who knows.

Point is simply, if he wants to engage with me, present his view, or even just tell me he thinks I'm a mentally ill slut piece of garbage and should be imprisoned and killed and stoned and euthanized and banned for telling the truth, he should do it in a forum post instead of abusing power to change my name, which represents me falsely, as most people will assume I made the name changes myself to things that are silly and more than border on blasphemous.

I mean, you can argue to someone what you feel they should be able to withstand and accept that isn't happening to you, like if a woman who is shopping at the grocery store has a strange man come up behind her and he grabs her ass and she complains that something happened that shouldn't happen, you could shrug it off and tell her, "No big deal, don't be such a baby."

But what happened is something that shouldn't happen. Women should be able to shop at the grocery store without having to worry about being violated by indecent men.

People should be able to sign up for a stupid website or forum without having to worry that the website staff will mess with the account settings in the absence of violations of the rules (ie. racist names like "i-hate-naggers" could rightly be changed and the user penalized because it violates the first point of the forum rules blid himself posted against racial intolerance).

The complaint is legitimate. They should not be messing with user accounts just because they don't like the person's religion. He should make forum posts about it instead as a valid way to express his concerns so it doesn't come across as power abuse or bullying. IDK what his intention was because he didn't say.

Define "troll" and "heckle" so I can make an accurate assessment.

No luck is required.

You remain silent when others hatefully attack me "GTFO WE DONT WANT YOU", falsely accuse me, ban my friends, threaten to ban me, tell me I should be killed by being run over by a bus, have my kids removed, be imprisoned, be stoned to death, euthanized, and so on.

Yet here you are "heckling and trolling" me (changing my forum name to things intended to provoke me) for petty and ridiculous reasons without actually, as is typical for the BS-hater crowd, providing a single concrete example of what I did, you just imply I did something bad because you feel offended at the truth. It's the truth that bothers you. And you want to attack the one telling it because you're too arrogant to apologize for anything you've done wrong.

Yes, I've trolled the forum for sure. When we were friends, you were in on it. You laughed with me. So don't suddenly pretend like you have actual standards against the very vaguely-defined trolling. "Trolling" can mean a lot of things to a lot of people. My definition is being silly for laughs, *not* "intentionally harassing or upsetting other people".

If people are upset by the truth, maybe they should just change their behavior so seeing a mirror isn't so upsetting.

You just sent me a personal message lol'ing in response to the historical fact people who think like you (communists) murdered people like me (Christians) for no other reason than hating Christians on the basis of being Christians.

I fail to see the humor in murdering innocent people.

They have to really carve out a hole in the ceiling of the heights of hypocrisy to be able to fit you in.

You definitely have a problem with flawed reasoning:

How about this then:

Some christians killed people because they were not baptized some even killed and raped children because their parents were not the right kind of christian all that in the name of god.
Does that make you a child murderer and rapist?

You are doing just the same and expect people to find you reasonable?
And you question why people laugh at you?
Reasonable people wont talk back to insanity, and your way of arguing is so flawed there is no point even trying to make sense with you.

Your argumentation fallacy comes from using "guilt by association" this is a dishonest and disrespectful way of arguing and mousey is smart enough not to fall for it.

You using these kind of argumentation fallacy is disrespectful and insulting to others, do not expect people you spit in the face to have an interesting discussion with you.
As a matter of fact you are lucky mousey is just laughing at you.

You do not like people laughing at you? Start being reasonable maybe you will be listened and your views and opinions at least respected.

It is a shame rhetoric is not taught in schools anymore...

---
Now can you take that as a critique and not as a personal attack?

Can you also admit when you are wrong and accept that sometimes you may have messed up and are being dishonest?

If Mousey has to apologize for laughing at you do you not have to apologize for how unfair you are to her?
Who is the arrogant one and wont apologize now?

This is all very easy to respond to, but when the listener is already determined to arrest someone for jaywalking on an empty road after thumbs-upping a gang rape and armed robbery, you realize there isn't anything you can say that will make a difference.

Still not being extreme at all!
