Objections to the April Fools Day prank.

It needed pointing at and it was only in that conversation that I did so. I still consider what you were doing flaming and I would have banned you for it, but you stopped, which is always what I am hoping for. Also, I don't have a big bad ban button. I have the ability to discuss bannings with staff. I have been overruled before and I believe I have taken part in overruling others before. There is no dictatorship here.

I should point out that my personal "relationship" with tibs has never, ever been a factor in a staff decision. I realize you did not say it, but it must be made clear. Tiberius and I are two separate people. We disagree on a regular basis.

RE: Objections to the April Fools Day prank.
Regarding LMA... she popped up the first day in the 69 forum and I was all "who's this?" wondering if they were somehow related to you, tibs.

Cute to find out the truth though... my opinion of her dropped by the post from the start. I didn't know she was a sock, or a troll: she reminded me of so many people I dislike and didn't do herself any favors by attacking shelly over having #2 breasts Dodgy

Were I so fragile about my appearance, I might be expected to go into weeks of depression at a time (oh wait). That was the only sock I had any experience with (mostly after the fact)... as I said: should have been here on April 1st.

I've repeatedly explained how they were not meant to take the piss out of anyone in particular.

That doesn't mean I have to buy it, no disrespect intended.

Quote:It was other people's reactions that fueled a lot of the "controversy" over this, not what our accounts actually did. A load of people jumped to the defense of LMA, despite the fact she'd been a total bitch in what was supposed to be a marriage thread.

Reactions which you were there to get. At the end of the day all of these sock accounts were there to get a reaction.

This is just an example of how it went too far. Why should the sock puppet be getting into the relations between anyone? Regardless of whether it was you or Shell. It was only ever going to cause drama.

Like I said the religious themed ones were fine because they didn't seem to play on the reactions of the relations between people. These other two did one way or another.

out . . . your ass? Wink Enough with this, whateverist. I did not insult you personally and will not be baited to do so. Constructively involve yourself in the conversation or be subject to Vae's maize comments, your call.

My ass???? Not on your life.

RE: Objections to the April Fools Day prank.
The religious ones got the most negative attention out of all of them. How can you say they weren't taking the piss out of people? They weren't intended to upset anyone, but I get the distinct feeling that the problem with mine and Tibs' trolls is not what they did, but that they were mine and Tibs. One King's thread was a fucking mile long, for fuck's sake. It can hardly be helped that the more vocal and emo-personal (not an insult, really an observation, as these individuals have admitted that my apparent lack of emotion (haha) is an issue for them) are the ones who latched on to ours.

So, nothing every comes out of your ass?

I realize that you are trying to convey that my comment had something to do with me and your ass. Let's not be utterly ridiculous here. I'm relatively certain that no one would believe for a second that I am interested in you or your ass. Nice try, though. Big Grin

You're misunderstanding my point. It's not that they took the piss out of people. It's that INDIVIDUAL people seemed to be having the piss took out of them. Or at least that was the outcome which came from those two accounts.

Were you not laughing when Alei sent a PM to LMA's account? She was genuinely thinking that was a real person. I am interested to see how exactly you think that it's fine to lead people on in such a manner and be simultaneously arguing with them with your own account. It's backhanded in my view.

RE: Objections to the April Fools Day prank.
OK, here are my posts from the thread where we discussed / planned the April Fools joke, where I discussed my troll in particular:

Tiberius Wrote:My troll account (in honour of reverendjeremiah): http://atheistforums.org/user-3131.html
Tiberius Wrote:ReverendJeremiah has already sent Atheist Anarchist a PM saying how much he loves my posts and agrees with me. This trolling lark is fun.

I'm not going to respond to it though, since I think we have to have limits on the trolling we do. Public trolling is fine, but I don't want to make this seem like it is personal trolling of anyone. Hence why my character is a complete moron when it comes to technology. Probably won't troll much over the next week either; we have to save ourselves for the big day.

This will be the most elaborate practical joke we've ever done methinks.
Tiberius Wrote:Yeah, I think I'm gonna come back and "defeat" my own arguments in the politics thread.

That was it.

Napoleon Wrote:Like I said the religious themed ones were fine because they didn't seem to play on the reactions of the relations between people. These other two did one way or another.
Yet the relations we played upon were between myself and Shell, who were both in on the joke.

Edit: If Shell wants to post her posts about LMA, she can, but I'm not going to force her or do it for her.
